We came across this very soothing evening spot last weekend, the Karwale dam. This one is located in Saphala, a train station that falls in between Virar-Palghar route. Karwale dam is approximately 6 years old, you can say a moderately recent construction. Since then, it has been a great water source to the nearby villages. Other than that as you see the pictures, it is a quaint evening spot for residents there. We imagined that during monsoon this dam and the surroundings must look stunningly green and therefore a great idea to plan a picnic during the season.
You can board passenger trains or Virar-Dahanu local trains that halt at Saphala Railway station. Roughly, the dam is 3-4 kilometers from eastern section of the village, an east-west division made by the railway line there. Hire a rikshaw, dumdum or catch a bus to get to the Karwale Stop on the route to a small village, Pargaon.
By road, Karwale dam is on Saphale road, a deviation from Mumbai -Ahmedabad expressway on National Highway8 .
