Bhushi Dam
Bhushi Dam is a masonry dam on the Indrayani River in Lonavala, Maharashtra. Bhushi Dam is one of the top Lonavala tourist places and a very popular weekend getaway from Pune and Mumbai. The Dam is located in the backdrop of scenic hilly terrains between Lonavala and INS Shivaji.

The dam was built in late 1860s for the Great Indian Peninsular Railway as a source of water for their steam engines. Water from the dam was carried to Lonavala, Khandala and the reversing station of the railways by cast-iron pipes.

In the rainy season, when the Bhushi dam overflows, the water flows over a series of steps and then over some easily accessible rocky terrain. The terrain and the water make for a fun combination and this is why Bhushi dam gets crowded on weekends as well as during the holidays. There is a waterfall located very close to the dam, which is formed when the water gushes out through the dam during the monsoon months. Swimming is restricted due to the unpredictable flow of the water during the monsoon months.

The lake created by Bhushi Dam is also used for power generation by Tata Power.

The wind is extremely strong at this place and it was quite thrilling to see many adventurous people get close to the edge to get 'that' living-on-the-edge photograph.

A private tour drive to the majestic valleys of Lonavala
about_kansas, 12-08-2019
This trip was recommended by Vikrant since I have mentioned to him that I have no itinerary for my 2 days here in Mumbai. We did already the 1st one and that was the Mumbai tour that I recommended to everyone. Well believe me on the spot decision of having this tour to Lonavala was never a regret to me. At first I had a doubt of taking it since no one had given a review, but I swear it turned to be a very lovely trip. I was lucky enough that two tour guides were there with me Vikrant and Sameer and of course our number driver Ram. It was comfortable being with them the whole trip for they were very open and sensitive to what my gender is. Yes, you have read it right I'm a transgender and they have accepted and respected me of what I am. So yes, for my LGBTQ families out there, they are the one's who'm you'll book your trip with, they are real and they've got lots of philosophies in life to share with for short they are very humorous that you won't feel bored. You have to consider these factors because it's a long trip and you need someone who are jolly and nice to converse with and that is totally them. It will perfectly blend with the long and winding road to Lonavala, visiting the historical tourist sights of Western India.
