The route to Pawna lake offers lush green landscapes with unmatchable sceneries and the freedom to explore. From the ancient ruins of the forts to the huge waterfalls drizzling down the rocks, there is so much to see.

Lohagad fort, Bhaje falls, Visapur fort, Tung fort, Dudhiware falls, Koraigad fort, etc. All these places are always crowded. It’s more like human fall rather than waterfall. It’s a task to get a nice scenic picture without people in it.

Let me tell you my experience of my trip to Pawna Lake. My friends and I decided to go on this road trip based on recommendation from other friends. We were very excited and packed up a nice picnic basket, bedsheets, etc. little did we know that the rains would spoil our picnic plans. But no that wouldn’t get our spirits down. The difficult part was to find a nice spot with shelter where we could sit and relax. After taking 2 rounds in the car alongside the lake we finally found this place where they had these bamboo huts and we had to pay a fee to get in. So we went in there sat in these huts, drank tea and enjoyed the rains.

Road Trip is a perfect plan but when the destination is as beautiful as Pawna lake, the trip just gets better. The cool breeze makes you want to stay there longer and longer. I had a great time sitting by the lakeside, sipping tea, watching people come and go and jumping in the mud puddles.
