I visited two months back, found good to relax. Looks like you are in Mini Chowpatty in Mumbai. Be Careful while parking your vehicales as Traffic Police punctured my car as was a bit on road side. One time visit if it is far from your place.

The calmness, peace, lovely winds and awesome view of this lake makes it a complete romantic eve. I have been here several times during rain. You can have a variety of food stalls that offer hot snacks and corn.

The best part about this place is the serenity, the calm aura and the lake. It is a must visit place for people who are looking for a escape from the hustle of pune city.

Not much of attraction accept the clear water, which although is very very dirty on the banks.

I have been to Khadakwasla several times, it is barely an hour's drive away from Pune city. There is a section of the dam that you pass while en route to Sinhagad fort (or driving back from the fort), where you can stopover.

At the time of writing, the general public is allowed to venture into the water. This is a great place to have a nice swim. The water is considerably shallow and safe for 25 metres or so. You may undertake going further at your own risk. Post a swim, you can satisfy your appetite too. There are handcart vendors selling delicious snacks ranging from bhel puri, pani puri, sweet corn (seasonal), etc. There are comfortable straw mats spread out for you to watch the sunrise/sunset and basically, relax.

The crowds throng the place on weekends, so if you are looking for peace and quiet, an evening trip between Mon-Fri is recommended. The Khadakwasla Dam is worth a 2-3 hour halt. It is a good breather in most seasons, a cool dip in summer is worth it.

You may encounter bad, rough roads in the final three-four kilometers, driving from Pune city and back. Also, avoid visiting on holi (March 6,2015), social activists bar entry to the water on that day.

Best time to visit: Early morning or an hour before sunset.
