You can walk around half of the lake and get awesome views of the terrain around Matheran. Several points in the area. In rains you can enjoy wetting in the waterfall. Can go walking or take a horse ride. Must visit.

This is a nice place to take your selfie snaps. It looks like a small dam but its a lake. In the month of May, lake was not flooded but still it provides a nice view.

Not a very big lake, but beautiful. After rainy season the lake is full and water overflows. There are shacks serving snacks etc.

No, camping is not allowed on the open grounds. But there are Hotels nearby and you can avail of those to stay. However, you can sit late evening near the lake and enjoy the nature.
