Short Trip Hyderabad to Nagarjuna Sagar

Recommended Posts

We did a trip to Nagarjuna Sagar during the month of January. I wanted to share the experience here.

Started off on a Saturday morning at around 10AM. Took the usual route to Sagar. Visited a Balaji temple on a small hill enroute. The place was not in the limelight so less crowd and 2 min drive up the hill was exciting. No railing and very steep. The views from the top of the hill were superb.

 

View of The Wonderla from the ORR. Took it from a moving car.

Excellent Views from the Hilltop. The route which leads to the top of the hill is also clearly visible.

Stopped for Lunch at Hotel Sidhartha near Boudha Sthupas. Spent some time exploring the place after Lunch. Resumed again for Sagar. The road was nice and very less traffic. Stopped again on the road side to take few pictures of the distant view of the reservoir. Took some photos and started again.

After reaching Sagar, we came to know that the boating time was over. So wanted to try our luck on the other side of the reservoir. Reached that place and it closed as well. So no boating. Had lunch at the Haritha hotel and started exploring the place near the reservoir. There were few dingy boats operated by some private agency. He charged us about 20rs per head and would take us into the reservoir and the ride will last for about 30 min. They were kind enough to provide us with the life jackets. As kids were there, we asked him not go too far from the shore. We had good time during those 10 min Dingy ride. There were good views during the Sun set in that area.

Can you please share approximate location details. 
Also would suggest you to check this place(hill top temple) during evenings.

Never knew there is are other boating area apart from regular spot(lauch area)

There is another place around Nagarjunasagar which can explored during winter.
It is worth a short drive and place is very much isolated apart from a small village.

Boating facilities are avilale. Better to go in a group.

 

Thank you for sharing.

I think the regular place is on the regular route to macherla.. where as to reach the other spot we need to go a bit deep with few ghat like turns

Welcome Jagan. Good Write up. The tale of the temple on the top of the hill sounds interesting. Need to explore and find it out. Nagarjuna Sagar road itself is beautiful. There is no dispute that drive through ORR and then the entire stretch is amazing. 

 

Of course, great photography :)

 

Some pictures from my first trip last year  to Nagarjuna Sagar in June 2017.

Good shots.
Love the view from the AP tourism resort.
If they could have planned the construction on the edge, it would have fantastic location. 

@RangerI guess this is the only spot AP tourism lodge  that has maintained the property and the rooms well and decent. My service line leader is from Army background. Looks like there is a place close to the dam for stay but not Haaritha. Not sure where exactly it is located because he mentioned they did stay for a night at the spot next to the lake facing the dam.

I guess they are some government accommodations. 

Because I have never seen any hotel around the dam.
