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.
