Bhangoda village is a tiny place nearby Vihar Lake in Mumbai. Vihar Lake is on the periphery of Sanjay Gandhi national park which is situated right in middle of the city population.
Maybe this is only national park which is surrounded by the city. Vihar Lake makes a very good destination for weekend escape for Mumbai city dwellers. Such refreshing beauty of nature is so nearby but most of the people in city are either unaware or do not pay attention to this beautiful place so close to them.
Lake also serves as one of the major drinking water sources for Mumbai city. You will find various kind of flora and fauna in and around the lake. Mithi river just flows close by and adds to the attraction of this place. You can even couple of islands in the lake which is mesmerizing to watch in setting sun.
The place as not well developed for tourist point though. As there are no clear structures for tourists. We just happened to go there on our own and there is no clear road to reach the lake also. We just followed narrow path carved from the footsteps of other people who have been visiting the place earlier.
A caution although very scenic and beautiful the place is not prepared for tourists yet so you may not find clear paths or structures or safety measures for visitors. Vihar Lake is known for crocodiles and there are reports when Leopards from nearby Sanjay Gandhi national park visit the lake and nearby places. You need to be completely prepared for the trip and try not to come in contact with wild animals directly.
A lot people from nearby village and Mumbai city keep on coming here and enjoy natural scenery.
