Bhushi Dam - We rested for a while and proceeded to go to the Bhushi Dam nearby. The drive to that place was scenic, as we were going around the Lonavala Lake. The dam is a 10 min walk from the parking lot, with multiple food stalls along the way serving – corn, chana, snacks, cold drinks etc. It is a nice place to visit if you wish to get into the flowing water with friends. Be careful, this place can get over crowded sometimes.
You may also stop at Lonavala Lake Waterfall from where the view is quite beautiful. There are lot of street food options there.
Coopers Fudge - On our way back from the dam, we stopped at the most delicious Fudge store in Lonavala. This is right opposite the railway station. The Walnut Fudge is not to be missed.
Yewale Chai - 10 steps from Coopers, and you will find Yewale Chai – The popular chain from pune which serves just 1 type of tea at Rs.10/-
Golden Wadapav – They serve the most amazing wada pavs in Lonavala. Also try the samosa pav, moong dal bhajiye, and gulab jamuns (only if hot). This is a small place on the old Mumbai Pune Highway (near Lonavala Restaurant).
We finally ended the day with a nice stroll around Tungarli, as it was quite peaceful accompanied with a slight drizzle.
Day 2 (16th Aug)
Vyanjan – This is a very homely place near Don Bosco School where they serve home-made food which has a lovely sit out place. We tried the sandwiches and maggi.
