Lonar is the huge meteor crater that is not only visually dramatic but also of ecological and scientific interest. The crater was formed fifty two thousand years ago, when a meteor weighing two million tonnes crashed into the earth at an estimated speed of 90,000 kmph. The Lonar crater is the world's only salt water lake in basaltic rock. The lake water is both saline and alkaline in nature. It is surrounded by forests with a large variety of birds. Lonar has its own ecological system. As the sun sets, the entire lake appears differently. The lake water sweeps across the shore like sea water, and the birds, wolves, peacocks and other creatures start making their presence felt. It is a wonderful scene to watch the sun rising and setting below the lake walls.
