located close to lonavala, about 10 km, the catchment area of valvan dam is a really beautiful location especially in monsoons. access is bit restricted as it is used for drinking water and hydropower purposes. can be accessed from kamshet end or by trekking. lush greenery and waterfalls make it a lovely sight

Restricted access controlled by TATA group. We were turned away. We were offered few clues by the security guard to spell the password to get entry like "tata employee?", "govt employee? " etc. No luck after minutes of trying to cajole the guard.

Very picturesque lake. On the way from Tiger Point, we had to stop on reaching the lake - very picturesque and a sure shot photography point. However max spend 20 mins - dont budget more.

While approaching one has to pass the Valvan lake dam wall.. The hotel Upper Deck is at the highest point. and good trek from there. it has a peaceful village next to it with about 50 families staying

When we went there we were informed public not allowed any more. Due to fear of terror attack. So we went to wax museum near by.

The place is maintained by tata power and as one would guess is a beautifully kept place. No cameras allowed due to security so keep them in your car or hotel. a little steep for old people

A well maintained and excellently manicured park. Sad it is not open for visitors who want to take a closer look....
