Today I am going to share details about Vadaj dam. It is located in Junnar (Shivneri Birthplace of great Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj) and around 80KM from Pune. Its earthfill dam smaller in size and capacity. The route to Vadaj is very scenic and beautiful, farms are on both sides of the road. To reach Vadaj from Pune you have to take Pune – Nashik highway after Manchar S.T stand there bridge once you pass that you have to take immediate left. This road by passing small villages will take you to the Vadaj. On the way you will also see mahalunge padwal birth place of freedom fighter Hutatma Babu Genu.
We started from New Sangvi Pune around 6.30 AM and reached there around 10.00 AM. (It took time as we had taken breakfast break for famous Misal Pav at Bham Village). After clicking few snaps we moved and visited the Shivneri Fort. (It’s just 6-7 KM from) on our way we visited Hotel Rajkamal very good and famous spot to have moog bhajji and banana sheera
Any one who wish to visit should consider the time between September – December after monsoon. As you will be seeing lots of greenery and Dam at its full capacity.
Junnar has A blessing of forest and its still maintained. The scenic area will refresh your mood.
