Lonar Crater Lake

Lonar Lake is a saline soda lake and it is located at Lonar in Buldana district, Maharashtra, India. Lonar lake was created by a meteor impact during the Pleistocene Epoch. This lake, which lies in a basalt impact structure is both saline and alkaline in nature. A series of low hills surround the lake which has an oval shape (almost round). Lonar Lake has a mean diameter of 1.2 km and is about 137 m below the crater rim.

Around the lake many types of trees are spread like teak, tamarind, babul etc. Muddy space is several hundred metres/yards broad and covered with a whitish slimy soil. The water of the lake contains various salts or sodas and during dry weather when evaporation reduces the water level, large quantities of soda are collected.
