    Khadakwasla Dam

    One of Pune's primary water sources is the Khadakwasla Dam, which was constructed over the Mutha River. Even tourists are enthralled by the Dam and the nearby food chowpaty, a favourite weekend picnic location for residents.



    Why to visit this place

    It is built on the Mutha River, which runs through the city and provides water to Pune and its suburbs. The dam creates Khadakwasla Lake, a reservoir that provides a short and pleasant retreat.

    Khadakwasla Dam is a popular picnic area because of its proximity to Pune City and the gorgeous surroundings. The roads surrounding the Khadakwasla Dam are also a popular cycling route for city riders.

    The Khadakwasla Dam spans River Mutha for roughly 1.6 kilometres, beginning at the junction of two other rivers, River Ambi and River Mose. Panshet Dam and Varasgaon Dam have been erected over these two rivers, respectively. The dam is created atop the rough rock of the Mutha riverbed and stands little over 31 metres tall. Students and hobbyists are frequently drawn to this engineering effort.
