Pavana River is one of the rivers you'll come across if you were staying near Pune. It originates from the Western Ghats and flows for a distance of 60 kms before meeting Mula river near Sangvi.

One fine day, after work visits, we had some spare time in our hands. My colleague, Madan said he knew about this spot which I'd love. Me being the adventure freak that I am said let's go.

To get to the spot we had to cross this small bridge where only a small car can pass. Since we had bikes, it was pretty easy to get there.

This Suzuki Alto K10 is among the smallest power hatches in India. Notice how it takes up the whole space.

That's me soaking up the view.

The view.

The view from behind the handlebars.

It had been ages since I had stepped into a sea or river, thanks to living in Delhi for a year. So, the first thing I did as soon as we reached our spot was taking off my shoe and getting into the water.

The water was pretty fresh and clean.

The view wasn't bad either. It was very peaceful to sit there for a few minutes unperturbed. These kind of experiences are what I crave. If I had an orange juice in my hand to sip, that would've completed it for me.

That's my other colleague, Chandan. He's from Rajasthan.

Yours truly on the left and Chandan on the right.

Did I forget to introduce my other colleague, Madan who brought us to this place? That's him. He's a biker too so we connect that way.

That's the trio.

All chilling together!

Posing for some typical photos! :P

20190510_155546.jpg

Whee!

20190510_155549.jpg

Looks like he's lost in some deep thoughts.

20190510_155339.jpg

Did he just hear what I said?

20190510_155343.jpg

Slippery but not too deep.

20190510_155809.jpg

And then some friends arrive!

His friends :P

20190510_160608.jpg

Baaaaahh!!

20190510_160615.jpg

Look how clean the water is. We noticed that later the water started becoming impure with time.

20190510_154738.jpg

People come here to swim too.

20190510_155740.jpg

Notice the rise in water level?

It's because they released the dam.

Just a few minutes ago we had been standing here. And now it's too risky to do so.

20190510_165115.jpg

Had a good time here and it was time to head back.

I would love to visit there again someday once this Covid19 situation in Pune reduces. It's hard to find places such as this that have not yet become mainstream these days.

Staying in Delhi for 4 years, I thought that was drainage below the bridge at first.

that have not yet become mainstream these days.

lol

I'm sure you imagined the smell too while reading this 🤣

lol.

You think I even have my sense of smell after that?

That's scary to see that car crossing that bridge. And I think there's no chance of a SUV to pass through it.

Beautiful Destination it looks. Some peoples might come here to feel relaxed from the chaos of the city

Is this place in a rural area?

Yeah dude, this is in the outskirts. It was a praceful area. Good to bust your stress in the evenings!

Looks so peaceful. I love taking small rides on my bike and going on a place like this.

We have a place near my town, where there are some mountains, the river yamuna, a small forest....feels like paradise.

There is a small ashram over there, people go there to meditate. It's been quite long since I visited that place. And after seeing your pics, I am craving to go there.

Maybe next week.

Thanks for sharing this.

Oh wow @looftee. But the temperature
there makes it hard to spend time I guess. Is it right?

There is a lot of greenery around, so temperature isn't much of a problem. Roads are though.

Those places are great to be in. I don't really like crowded places.

yepp..

That's amazing. If I were you, I would've spent most of the lockdown in the ashram itself.
You should go there dude... and also make a blog about it! :D

lol, ashram baba would kick me out. You need to wake up early. Meditate daily...eat very less...cool things but I can't do it.

Hahaha! True that.
