There's not much to see at Charlotte lake. Except for a point close to it...there's nothing to do here. The zip line "lake crossing" is an okay adventure (cost: 300/-; dist. covered: approx 100-150mts.)

The walk to the lake is very good...it is surrounded by mountains, the local Lord Shiva temple and some snacks shops...we enjoyed "Zunka and Bhakri" at Seema Snacks on the banks of the lake...but the spot which I like is just before you turn towards the lake...the spot gives a majestic view of the mountains...

This lake is supposed to provide water to Matheran. Was dried up, which is understandable. Lots of monkeys which are quite aggressive compared to other monkeys in matheran. Beware of your belongings. There is the temple of local deity, Shiva.

A couple of points are at the same spot. But Lake dries up during summer. Very old Lord Shiva temple across the other side. Good greenery.Good spot for instant fotos.Take a couple snaps from local foto guy as a buffer in case you lose data from mobile. DO NOT CARRY PLASTIC BAGS IN HANDS IF YOU ARE WALKING, FOR FEAR...
