Pawna Lake Camping

A dip in it’s waters and we’re sure you’ll forget all your worries.You can take up recreational activities and bask in the sunlight with your fam or simply swim in the lake and let time heal all your stress. Have some delicious food amidst nature. All this, starting at just INR 1100 per head!
Suleman Family Dhaba
Not a very fancy place but they sure do get their food on point! It serves North Indian cuisine and their biryani is hard to resist. The paneer makhani with butter naan is a must-have. The veg makhanwala and chicken handi are total winners. We love that they have an outdoor seating area. Their meals would cost around INR 500 for two, which we think is a great deal!
Based amidst nature, this fort is a reminder of the times of Chatrapati Shivaji Maharaj. Though in ruins, it serves as an amazing place to witness the best views of the city. Located at a distance of 5kms from Malawli station, it also serves as an ideal trekking destination. Chatrapati Shivaji Maharaj used this fort as his treasury and it was originally built by Raja Bhog. You can also find a lot many waterfalls here during monsoons and it is also somewhat like a miniature version of Kaas Plateau! The entry here is free and you could even go here for a night trek, which they allow for.
This waterfall gathers a lot of attention due to its high altitude and the greenery amidst which it finds a way down. It is recommended to visit this place, situated in Lonavla-Khandala Valley, during monsoons. With a number of eateries around, you won’t have to worry about going hungry.
