On day 3, we moved to Lonavala - The abode of cloud. Our first stop was Bhushi dam.Bhushi Dam: Where water overflows onto a set of steps during rainy season. The waterfall is amazing and best place to have fun along with friends specially playing in flowing water. Go there in rainy season and check your strength to stand in that fierce flow of water. An experience of a lifetime is promised.
Between lonavala and the bus stop lies this dam which is easily a coverable distance. Its less of a dam right and now and more of a picnic spot next to a lake that has been formed, due to excess amount of tourists attracted to this sight. ONe has to be very careful while going close to water incase of slippery surfaces.
