Close to Aurangabad in the state of Maharashtra,India lies the Lonar lake; a saline lake formed by the impact of a meteor crashing in to the surface of the earth many many many years ago. A steep walk takes you down to the base of the crater lake and a 5 km walk takes you around the lake.
There is a walking path along the lake surrounded by trees and infested with monkeys. A word of caution: The monkeys are ferocious and attack even with slight provocation.
There is abundant flora and fauna around the lake.
Information: There is MTDC guest house at the top with a couple of rooms. This is the only decent accommodation and they serve a reasonable meal on request.
