“A lake carries you into recess of feeling otherwise impenetrable”-William Wordsworth
Sitting by a lake gives you such a serene sense of feeling that you start letting go of all your problems and come alive with every pang of wind kissing your face. Pune, one of the most rapidly developing cities in our country has plenty of such beautiful lakes:
- Pashan Lake: Pashan is a man-made lake that was built in 1990s. This lake was built to fulfil the water requirements of the Pashan and Sutarwadi suburbs which are approximately 11 km away from the centre of Pune.
Apart from being a home to more than 30 bird species, this lake also has a temple of Lord Shiva nearby which is generally less crowded making the environment quiet and peace full. Hence, it is an ideal place to take your family to for a vacation!
- Mulshi Lake: Situated amidst the dense and dark forests having a wide variety of trees like mango and oak, Mulshi Lake is primarily used for the production of electricity at Bhira Hydroelectric power plant as well as supplying water for irrigation at farms.
It is an amazing place to plan a picnic with your folks or friends because the climate is usually pleasant around the lake.
- Manas Lake Bhugaon: This lake is in Bhugaon, Pune and is known for its peaceful and calm environment. There are a couple of exotic resorts and near it making it an even perfect spot for a family getaway.
There is also an amusement park located quite close to the lake so you may as well enjoy paying a visit there. All in all, it is a fun package.
