About Lonar Lake

The Lonar Lake is located at Lonar in Buldhana district of Maharastra. This is about 360 km from Nagpur. It is also called the Lonar Crater Lake because it was created by a meteor impact during the Pleistocene Epoch. Epoch is a geological term referring to a subdivision of geologic timescale- told you it is interesting! The lake has a diameter of 1.2 km and is about 37 meters below the rim of the crater. Since the lake is both saline and alkaline in nature and also because it is the only known hypervelocity impact crater over basaltic rock anywhere on the Earth, it has been the subject of various studies by geologists, scientists, naturalists, and astronomers. The lake is inside a dense forest, so you got to trek for about an hour to reach the lake. You may take a local guide along. He will tell you about the meteor-strikes-lake-formed fact and also that this lake is alternatively famous for ancient rishis building temples around it. You can actually see the ruins of these temples around. The lake is a beautiful sight; the calm water gives a soothing feeling. Many birds and animals are regular visitors to this lake, keep your cameras ready!
