Recommended Posts

After unlock 4.0 we started exploring options for travel, which should be short one and safe.

Got info about Kondapochamma reservoir and decided to explore it.

 

Initial plan was to catch sunrise. But home's chief minister and leader of opposition (my son, they rules the house) objected this.

So started around 8 in the morning from Miyapur.

 

Kondapochamma entry:
It has two entries, main entry and secondary entry.

Some times main entry is closed, no need to disappoint. There is one more entry from the back side.
Drive a little further ahead you can find another entry, but the road is patchy.  

  1. Kondapocharamma First Entry point location details(High crowd) :  https://goo.gl/maps/N1e4tAC9bmYTB4fu8
  2. Kondapocharamma Second Entry point location details (Medium crowd)https://goo.gl/maps/Ca3L4CuGkEc95s8E7
  3. Kondapocharamma Third Entry point location details (Less crowd😞https://goo.gl/maps/AaRAWCpYnqos3Avg8

 

Road condition from Hyderabad to Kondapochamma:

Roads are excellent till reservoir ( just 2 to 3 km of bad road near to it). Distance is around 65 km.

 

Time spent at Kondapochamma:

It is good location for relaxation and photography. We spend around 2 hours there, took breakfast and return back by 2PM in afternoon.

 

Best time to visit Kondapochamma:

Note: Best time to explore is early morning or late evening.

 

Food availability at Kondapochamma:

Carry own food and water, you will find nothing around it.

 

Avoid Kondapochamma on weekends:

Avoid Kondapochamma during weekends, it is usually overcrowded.
If you plan on weekend, start early in the morning from Hyderabad. 
Crowd picks up post 10AM.

 

Some of the important facts about Kondapochamma sagar reservoir:

Very informative post @mit1682.. Thank you for sharing. I have paid my visit a few weeks ago when the weather itched for a long drive.. Though I failed to reach the top because of the crowd, it was a lovely evening. Could you share the co-ordinaries of an other entry that you had mentioned..? 
 

Sharing a few pictures of my visit.. 

 

Long traffic queues all along.. 😊
