Hyderabad: Here is a young and enterprising traveler who gives his account of best lakes to be visited in Telangana:

  • Pocharam dam reservoir, Medak: 110 km. from Hyderabad and 15 Kms from Medak town on the Medak – Yellareddy road. A nice drive (car/bike) of 100 km on the Hyderabad – Narsapur –  Medak road takes you to Medak town.15 km from Medak is the Pocharam lake. A nice place to have a picnic as well as camping. You can go play in the water also, but it will be muddy or thorny at some places.
  • Manjeera reservoir: 90 km on the Mumbai highway you will find this on your right. This place is a crocodile sanctuary, And believe me, a view of hundreds of crocodiles bathing in the winter sun is really worth. Also, this is the place half of Hyderabad gets water.
  • Singur Dam: 120 km from Hyderabad, after Manjeera reservoir, comes to this huge dam.
  • Laknavaram lake: About 70 km from Warangal, totaling 220 km from Hyderabad, another amazing lake.
