Now Is The Best Time To Visit These Waterfalls Near Nagarjuna Sagar


    If you love the thought of cascading waterfalls amidst mossy green hills, you must certainly visit Ethipothala Waterfalls. And it's only three hours away from Hyderabad. 

    What Makes It Awesome

    Just next to Nagarjuna Sagar Dam, Ethipothala Waterfalls is worth checking off your bucket list if you are in and around Hyderabad. Located 163 km away from Hyderabad, a visit to Ethipothala is nothing short of a trek. You have to climb down nearly 80 feet to reach the viewing platform from where you get a fine view of the waterfalls. Plus, there is a little crocodile sanctuary at the foothills of the waterfall as it forms a lagoon which makes for a perfect breeding ground. So, if you want a quick getaway, and say hello to them ‘crocs, get here.

    The falls are surrounded by lush green plantation and rocks. The duration between September and February is the best time to visit these falls, as the gush of water is thicker and more pleasant. There's an entrance fee of INR 20 to enter the park which leads to the falls.

    What Could Be Better

    There's no proper hotel to stay in around the falls, so if you're planning to stay the weekend, check out Haritha Vijay Vihar near Nagarjuna Sagar Dam.


    Be wary of the monkeys around the area, as they could be troublesome.
