Vihar Lake

Behind the Hills of IIT Bombay, is a serene and beautiful lake called the Vihar Lake. This lake is one of the sources of drinking water for the whole of Mumbai. Situated between three mountains this lake is worth devoting a whole evening. We went out there the second time, the first time being last week.

I hope to have some beautiful pictures/videos of the lake by Monday evening. Let's see if they can be uploaded somewhere.

If you want a good evening exercise along with enjoyment, the best thing is to climb up the hill behind IIT Bombay. From the hill top you can see the Powai lake, Vihar lake, whole of IIT Bombay, the Thane creek and the eastern express highway. You can also witness the landing and take off of air planes, although not very closely. But being one of the highest point in Mumbai, this offers a nice view.

Climb down the hill from the other side and you get to Vihar lake. Sit there and enjoy the evening along the banks of the lake, with waves of clear water splashing on the banks. Mind you, if you have a girl-friend/boyfriend this picnic will make her/his evening.

After that, you can come back to IIT walking along/on the pipeline. If you want to spend some more time, keep walking along the pipeline and come out at Saki-Vihar road. Enjoy tea/snacks out there and then come back to IIT/your home. It is a very nice experience. You enjoy it once, you would want to enjoy it again and again.
