Gather your fam or squad in a car and head to the scenic Nagarjuna Sagar Dam for a day long getaway amidst nature.
Escape With Your Fam To This Dam That Is Just 150 Km Away From Hyderabad
Picnics, Long Drives
What Makes It Awesome
With monsoons having arrived, the best time to visit Nagarjuna Sagar Dam is not far away. The dam is about three-and-a-half hours drive from the city and makes for a short but amazing road trip. The dam offers a refreshing view, that will make you forget city life for a bit. Be sure to take a boat ride to Nagarjunakonda Island which has an archaeological museum and Buddhist artefacts for you to gawk at. You can either carry food from home and make it a conventional picnic or check out the many South Indian food stalls serving thali here. There is also Ethipothala Falls if you're up for a trek that leads you to a crocodile sanctuary at its foothills.
We wouldn't recommend an overnight stay here, but if you are keen to, then check out Haritha Vijay Vihar, a modern resort with a tranquil ambience.
What Could Be Better?
Although stopping by the road gives a great view of the dam with its rushing waters, it would help to have a designated view point. Currently, that's lacking so you need to wander all around to find a vantage point.
