Pelhar Dam Lake, Vasai Virar

Pelhar lake is a rock earth dam situated in Vasai Virar region which is a part of water supply unit to the cities. This dam was est in 1975. When viewed from above this reservoir looks like a heart shape. The length of this dam is about 500 meters. Vehicles are not allowed inside. The dam area is appx 700mx700m. The water level goes down during summer but during rains the iron gates are removed and kept which releases water and on the opposite waterfall is formed. The water gushes down the rocks with rapid force. Dam is deep and rich in flora and fauna. During heavy rainfall water level can increase abruptly. The waterfall part is dangerous as the rocks are slippery and force of water is great. Lake is pristine untouched. Since this is a water supply unit the lake is clean. The dam gets its water through rivers from Tungareshwar Hills. The river name is abma (from other sources). One can also see the Tungareshwar Fort in dams backdrop.
