Personal experience

We explored this place while our Shivneri Joga dam bike ride. Two riders Me and Rakesh started from Mumbai at night we choose the Lonavala -Narayangaon route. After visiting Shivneri fort we move towards Joga dam. We click some nice photos in Ganesh Khind on the way to Joga dam. As soon as we move downhill we saw the Joga dam backwater. As we are riders we like unique and more panoramic views so we started our search around Joga dam.

We entered a small village, We park our bikes outside because we fill sum muddy area over there. It’s a good view but we can’t able to reach near water. So we decided to move to another place. While searching we found a very unique spot. Where we can park our bike near the water.

It’s a very nice and photogenic view of Joga Dam. A sky blue color water invites us to capture this colorful movement. What a lovely place we can’t imagine these types of places available around us. Very clean and crystal clear water. This place is located near fishermen colony.


A beautiful Duck family, When we park our bikes and start the photoshoot. We found One duck family. Walking towards water father mother and two kids. It looks like they are doing a catwalk to attract us to take their photos. They called each other in their language Pac – Pac – Pac, It’s so funny and queue cute little duck. After some time they all entered in water and start swimming.

We asked one family who was leaving just in front of that place. About a place how they leave there?  Is camping allowed ? How much deep water? Is there any risk to swim? How they do their fishing businesses? We got a very positive and satisfactory answer from them. They also allow us for camping.
