When planning a trip to Pawna Lake temperature can play an important role! Depending on the month in which you plan to visit the place, the temperature can vary as much as over 20 degrees between the peak summers and winters.

Where the temperatures can reach as high as 40-degrees in the summer months of March and April, the Pawna Lake weather in winters can be very cold, with the mercury tipping even lower than 13 degree Celsius in January and February. 

The best time to visit Pawna Lake is definitely around the winter season when the scenery is still fresh from the monsoons and the temperature remains cool and pleasant throughout the day, offering ample opportunities for outdoor activities.

The monsoons that start around May and extend till September are also a great time to visit the place. The best part about a monsoon trip is that you can enjoy the lush greenery of the area.

Pawna Lake During Summers

Pawna Lake During Summers
Summers in Pawna Lake do not last long, but the short spell of heat between March and April can be intense. Pawna Lake weather in summers is characterised by hot and humid afternoons and pleasant and breezy evenings.
If you are planning to visit the lake during summers, you can plan your hike to the lake in the early hours of the morning, since the weather is much cooler around that time.

You can enjoy the changing colour of the sky when you choose to trek in the early hours of the morning. Then, you can make the most of the afternoon sitting under the shade of a tree where you can dip your feet in the water to cool off. As the sun starts its ascent, temperatures also start to drop, leaving behind a cool, refreshing breeze as the winds cross over the water. 

Average Temperature During Summers:
The average Pawna lake temperature during the summer months can rise as high as 40-degree Celcius during the day. As the night falls, temperatures plummet to around a more bearable 30-degree Celsius or less, making it a popular camping destination, even in peak summers.

The Pawna Lake weather around the time is pleasant throughout the day with intermittent or sometimes continuous rains. 

As a result of the rains, the surrounding lush landscape turns vibrant green, making it one of the most beautiful times to visit the area. The pleasant weather means that you can spend the entire day walking and trekking around the area and then spend your evenings under the stars. 

Monsoons are also the perfect time for wildlife spotting in the area! You can bring your binoculars and watch animals and birds frolicking in the water. 

Average Temperature During Monsoon:
During the monsoon season, the Pawna Lake temperatures remain pleasant throughout the day, averaging at about 24-degree Celsius. The nights can turn cool, with the temperatures dropping to around 20-degree Celsius and lower.

The temperatures remain cool around this time of the year, and the weather is dry which makes it the perfect time to camp. The reservoir remains full, offering scenic views which you can capture in your camera and the trekking paths remain open and safe. 

If you do plan a camping trip around this time, make sure to pack extra layers of clothes and/or a warm sleeping bag as it can get really cold during the night. Also, since the days are much shorter, do plan your trip keeping the daylight hours in mind.

"Rajmachi trek was an amazing experience, of course given its beauty any nature lover would get mesmerised, BUT what matters more in such trekking experience is the trekking companions. Sagar Shinde is a great guy and true professional, he went beyond and make us have a great experience even though our trekking group reduced to just a couple of us. I am posting some pics that would be just glimpse of trek and the one with the trek guide Sagar who helped us trek such beautiful place."

Amazing Experience. We booked the Pawna Camping on Thrillophilia at discounted rates. We visited the place during rainy season in the month of August, and yet the experience was mesmerizing. The tents were neat and clean with blankets and bedsheets provided. The food was unlimited and okay for both Veg and Non-Veg, with the barbeque being the standout performer. Kanda-Bhajjis and Tea was also unlimited. While travelling to Pawna, prefer the Kamshet road via the expressway, as it is better and fast. Our tour operator for Pawna was Amol Karke and team. They were very friendly and helpful, and were always ready to help on WhatsApp and phone calls. Thank you Thrillophilia.

I booked the camping site for 19th Dec 2018. We were a group of 3 girls and we were notified that we are the only group coming to the site for 19th Dec (We were a little skeptical knowing that we are going to be the only group). HOW WE REACHED THE CAMPSITE - We reached the Lonavala Station around 11:30 a.m. We had to report to the already given location at 3 p.m. We hired a car from Lonavala station to the location which is 15 minutes from Tiger Point {approx 18 km}. -The manager came to pick up around 3:30 p.m. and we did a 20 minutes trek to the camping site. -The campsite is in the saltar village. For the return, you can either call any hire car (we called the same person who dropped us to the campsite a day earlier) or take a bus. You will have to confirm the timings of the bus beforehand at saltar village. EXPERIENCES OF THE CAMP - the campsite is well-located and the view is exquisite. - the manager and the care-takers(3) were extremely polite. They served us a welcome tea and Maggie and gave us a brief overview of what/where/how of the campsite. The tents were already made for us. - the site has ample space for recreational activities. We played badminton, carrom, archery and a little bit of hammock swaying as well :D - The barbeque and bonfire definitely stole all the thunder. - the dinner was simple and delicious. -the night sky was clear, starry and an almost full moon. Around 2 a.m. it got a little scary @-@ with all the wind and bizarre night sounds. - the ethereal sunrise !!! DONT MISS IT. To summarize it with a metaphor, it was "EVEN MORE FUN THAN A BALL PIT FILLED WITH CANDY!!!!" SUGGESTIONS/TIPS TO THE VISITORS -the place is perfect to click some amazing pictures with gorgeous backgrounds (especially during sunrise). - they provide facility to charge your phones -you can bring your own items like a telescope, speakers etc to personalize your stay (for some items you might need to update the organizers as well). -completely safe for girls. -the washrooms are clean. -you get a full network in your phone. -the organizers are available on phone and WhatsApp. You can call or message them regarding- commute, services, itinerary etc.

It was a good and comfortable stay, after much searching during long weekend rush we figured out this resort and had a comfortable stay.
It was a great 5 days trip to Matheran, Lonavala and Khandala. I visited here with my friends and we really enjoyed the tour a lot. We visited the famous Lonavala lake and kune falls.

This trek is worth trying. As an adventure lover, it offers the best scenic views of the area and the historic trade route was so beautiful and the village route was worth capturing and the waterfall looks incredible surrounded in lush greenery. The camp stay was in a peaceful location and till date, it was the best trek I had visited and will definitely visit again with all my group.
