Lonar lake is one of Maharashtras best-kept secrets. It is home to Earths only hypervelocity impact crater which is named after the demon, Lonasura, and is enclosed by fascinating temples, including one with erotic sculptures reminiscent of Khajuraho. The crater was formed 50,000 years ago, when a meteor crashed into the earth at an estimated speed of 90,000 kmph, weighing 2 million tonnes.
Not many people are aware of this beautiful and mysterious place. Why mysterious, you ask? Well, the Lonar lake has made even NASA scientists and Geological Survey of India officials question their theories and wonder how is it possible. The lake is both alkaline and saline. And it also the home to micro-organisms which are rarely found anywhere else on earth. Your compass will never work here, and what lies at the bottom, no one knows.
If you like bird watching, then the forest area is filled with migratory and local birds from red-wattled lapwings, blue jays to tailor birds, parakeet and peafowl. The sculptures around the temples has the same kind of appeal as Khajuraho would, with the erotic depictions and plundering beasts all being carved in stone.
Definitely a Zoom-worthy trip!
