Jadhav Wadi Dam - Talegaon

Greetings... Jadhav wadi dam is situated after crossing the Navlakh Umbre hill station? Actually there is nothing to see there near dam, but it is useful for those who need " Ekant", cool, calm place  & enjoy with group of  friends means party. The road up to the dam from main road is rough. As I was on 2 wheeler , I managed to go upto the destination, for car its difficult. But anyway it is a short cut to Talegaon from Bhama askhed. The scenes near the dam are beautiful. I picked some snaps & published below. If you need video clip, then also I will publish it. Anyway as I have to cover every micro level of places near pune, Jdhav wai dam is one of the point.  The route to this dam  I already discussed in last post. It is situated near Navlakh Umbre after crossing the Talegaon MIDC, you have to go thr' Khind then after khind you have to take right turn to reach Jadhav wadi dam. This road meets the Chakan- Talegaon main road. Nearby attraction to this
