Best by the evening.. A stroll on thE JVLR is enough to attract one towards the lake.. The cool breeze in the evenings and the night at one of the cleanest areas in Mumbai... One can also be quite satisfied travelling between Central & Western line with a glimpse and a breeze from the lake..

Nice relaxing place to unwind and breathe fresh air. You will feel the cool breeze, view of the Powai skyline with Rennessaince Hotel on one side and IIT powai on another.

Just a place to have pic of background and stop for 5-10 minutes. Nothing great about this place. Don't waste your time.

There is nothing you can do near the lake, even the lake is very dirty. Mumbai Municipal Corporation should have to take some initiative to clean this lake and they can even make it ready for tourism like boating etc.

Powai lake is a kind of neglected lake, which could have developed well for development of tourism in Mumbai. It is close to IIT and post Hira Nandani complex. It is a gift for people living close to it as it gives a good view. For others it is just a part of daily/ routine travel way. I stayed in... More

The view is great, but the water has crocodiles, so it is not preferable to enter the water. Also, there are male prostitutes known as gigolos near the lake at night. Also, there is no police anywhere near the lake, so its very dangerous. I had my office there and hence used to catch a bus from there to my... More

This is one of the most beautiful lakes in India and in Mumbai in particular. One can enjoy here but little cautious about dangerous crocodiles in the lake
