One of the most famous tourist attractions in Bhor is the Bhatghar dam. It is a huge masonry gravity dam built by the British in 1927 on the
Yelwandi (Velvandi) river. The lake created behind the dam is known as Bhatghar lake or Bhatghar backwaters and is one of the most scenic lakes
in Pune district. The vast expanses of still water which reflects the azure blue sky and the fluffy white clouds are a real treat to the eyes, add to that
the calm of the surrounding hills and jungles and you have a perfect spot to relax or indulge in a picnic. The backwater of the dam are accessible
from a number of places such as Narhe, Gorad Mhasavali, Wadhane and Sangamner. These places offer a peaceful spot to just sit and gaze at the
blue waters or maybe even a little angling is also a good idea. Another iconic spot in the area is the Necklace Point at Ingavali.
