Lake Pawna, Lonavala

Pawna Lake, also known as Pawna Dam Reservoir and Pavana Lake, is a reservoir turned artificial lake in the Indian state of Maharashtra, formed by the Pavana Dam across the Pavana River in Pune district. The reservoir is 25 km from Lonavala and is increasingly getting popular as picnic and camping site for visitors from Pune and Mumbai

The reservoir was formed as a consequence of the Pavana Dam project in Maval taluka in 1973. The backwaters of the Pavana Dam formed a reservoir, and the Pavana Dam backwaters subsequently came to be known as Pavana Lake.

We had a lunch at the restaurant which was close the lake offering dramatic views of the lake, and also took a speed boat ride which offered 360 degree views of the lake and the dam.
