LONAR CRATER LAKE (Aurangabad - Maharashtra - India)


 Around 3 hours from Aurangabad, the Lonar Crater Lake in Buldhana district of Maharashtra is also among the important places to visit near Aurangabad. A study point of several geologists, ecologists, archaeologists, naturalist, astronomers, and aspiring students, this lake was created due to the impact of a meteor that is known to be the largest of its kind.

Huge mass and velocity of the meteor, after it hit the ground, created a saline soda lake that measures around 1.2 km in diameter and 137 m in depth. Though in the beginning, the origin of this fascinating lake was believed to be due to a volcanic eruption, later studies on the Lonar Crater Lake confirmed that it is the impact of a meteor that created it.

Oval in shape, it is surrounded by a series of low lying hills and lush greeneries. In addition to the amazing outlook of the lake, the surrounding also adds to its captivating beauty and charm.
