Weekend getaway to Warangal-II ‘Pristine Pakhal Lake’

Pristine Pakhal lake: 

After having lunch in Warangal we started to Pakhal lake. Our main plan is to visit Pakhal lake which is a man-made lake in the Pakhal wildlife sanctuary. It is about 50km east of Warangal and is well connected by road passing through Narsampet which is about 12kms away from the lake. It is one of the best spots for Bird lovers in our newly formed state Telangana. I would call this place as an Ornithologists hangout place.This lake is situated amidst undulating forest land hills and watching birds is a popular retreat for the tourists. This lake is constructed around 1213 A.D. by Kakatiyan Ruler, Ganapati deva and spread over an area of 30 km2.

This place is a paradise for bird lovers like me.. If you are in Hyderabad and if you are looking for a refreshing weekend getaway then you can plan a trip to this place..

The shores around this lake is the Pakhal WildLife Sanctuary with an area of 839 km2. It is a dense forest shelter for a variety of fauna. We did not find any animals other than wild dogs, languor and monkeys. This place is a hub for snakes, didn’t even remembered how many snakes we saw on the road while we were cruising the forests.

Camping on the shore of Pakhal lake:

For a second, I thought I was in a monkey kingdom. Monkey’s were all around the place infact they were more than the tourists in this place. These were interfering in our business all the day and by the time it was dark they gone into the wild. By the time we were feeling good about this camping more than lakavaram, there entered the dragons, I mean insects and bugs…. Sorry, I have to say millions of insects which showed us the hell. Though we have preplanned for this camping by carrying ASV’s, DDT’s and some chemicals as a precautionary measure with us, everything went in vain..

Camping on the shore of Pakhal lake was really not upto our expectations..Snakes, Dogs, roaring sounds of Bears,  wild bugs and insects made our camping really an adventure and definitely  unforgettable experience(in otherway)

 What to do..????

After waiting for some time, Around 9pm we’ve decided to shift our camping.. Once we have shifted our camping to someplace near Narsampet, for a second, it was a sigh of a relief for us which was good one but not memorable like Laknavaram or Goa.

Tips from my Perspective:

1. Best time to visit this place is from September to March.

2. Beware of Monkeys, insects and wild dogs.

3. Not suggested for lonely travellers better to travel in groups.

4. If you are planning for a camping then plan it in feb- March. Don’t consider this place for camping from Sept-december instead go to Laknavaram.

5. There are shops in the near by village where you can buy food and beverages.

  1. Hi,
    Its seems a beautiful place. Actually, I wish to go to some.place where I can feel and touch the water. I don’t want to stand within a fence or barrier and just see water and birds. Is that possible here? Please let me know!

    • Hi Syeda, Yes it is indeed a beautiful place. There’s no fence you can go, touch and feel the waters. It seems that there are crocodiles in this lake. We got a chance to feel the waters, there were no restrictions at the time we went there. And there’s also boating facility available here. Take care!
