Pashan Lake is a beautiful, artificial lake which attracts tourists with its serenity. Green trees and bamboo plantations surround the lake, around which a park and a walking trail have been developed. People come here for boating, photography and daily walks.

Pashan lake was developed during British rule as a source of water for daily uses. It was also used for farming in the nearby villages. But the degradation in the quality of water made it unfit for drinking and other purposes.

Now, the lake and the surrounding landscape has been developed as a tourist spot and a place for relaxation. Fitness enthusiasts visit the Pashan Lake Park for jogging and running. The elderly people, too, come here regularly for morning walks.

Pashan Lake also appeals to migratory birds in the winter. Bird watchers and photographers flock in to capture their beauty. Among the bunch are birds like ducks, herons and storks. You'll also find butterflies and squirrels around the lake.

It’s a nice, little space where you can sit and relax or enjoy a leisurely stroll. Chirping of birds, rustling of leaves and the woody fragrance add to the charisma of Pashan Lake Pune.
