Situated in the middle of valvan village, off old mum-pune highway. A quiet place to spend an hour with family and friends. No restaurants or dhabas around. Only a few general stores. The lake is full of water throughout the year.

A place which can be visited atleast once a year just a month after the monsoon begins. Walk about half a kilometer to the dam and enjoy the greenery and the dam.

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.
