Temperatures started to dip in the second week of August and we started planning for a monsoon drive. We heard about a place called Laknavaram Lake, which is close to Warangal and decided to visit in a single day and come back. We started in the morning around 7 AM from Hyderabad.

 

The road condition between Hyderabad to Bhuvanagiri was excellent as it was a newly laid 4-lane road with smooth tarmac and we lazily cruised at 120 km/hr. Once we crossed Bhuvanagiri, the road condition started to change as the 4-lane road merged into a 2-lane road. Bhuvanagiri to Hanamkonda road condition is good with some patches in between.

 

It took us around 2 hours 40 minutes to reach Hanamkonda from Hyderabad and the Laknavaram lake is around 80 kilometres from Hanamkonda.

The road condition is good, surrounded with greenery and hills. We had some good lunch at Telangana tourism Haritha hotel which is located just before Laknavaram Lake on the highway. It costed us 80/- per head for unlimited meals. After the lunch, we headed to Laknavaram lake taking a diversion towards the lake which is at a distance of 6 kilometres from the main road.

 

Once we reached the lake we parked the car at a designated parking lot and bought an entry ticket. The first view of the lake is breathtaking as it was surrounded between hills, lush green islands and a bridge. Lake is spread around 10,000 acres with a bridge which connects two Islands offering a scenic view. It is around 160 meters in length and is the main attraction.

 

There are rooms available on this island which can be booked in advance online. Boating facility is also available at the lake which includes both speed boats and normal boat rides. Due to the high waiting time, we decided to skip it for the next time. After spending 2 hours at the lake, we headed back to Warangal to visit the 1000 pillar temple and the Warangal fort.

 

Unfortunately we missed the Ramappa temple which is situated near the lake. Warangal fort has a Light show at 6:30 PM, which explains the history of Warangal. We stayed for the Light show and headed back to Hyderabad.

It stands out to be a masterpiece and achieved major heights in terms of architectural skills

 Yeah it can be done in a single day as we covered these places in a day. You can also book rooms available at Laknavaram if you want to chill out for a night, but not sure about the prices though :)

Can we do this in a single day given starting point is hyderabad

As varun said it is easy to do it in a single day.Try to start early in the morning.

Road is mostly single lane but it is decent.

You can find decent food joints till warangal.But once you cross Warangal there is only one AP tourism hotel just before Laknavaram.

Note : Warangal to Laknavaram Cheruvu is at a distance of 80 Kilometres. There is some other place called Laknavaram(village).

@santosh

This is the ideal time to visit Warangal.There is a boating facility available at Laknavaram Cheruvu.

Avoid public holidays and Sundays as the place gets crowded.

It will be over crowded during long weekends.
Be prepared for it.

Laknavaram stay review(Vishal)

I stayed at Laknavaram in Dec 2017.
The island cottages were full so we booked the regular ones.
The rooms were clean and neat.
Food was ok kind of thing.

Plan to reach there early in the morning so that you can enjoy the sunrise and with absolutely no crowd. As time passes crowd will start pouring in and you'll not be able to enjoy your time there. Boating, Cycling and trekking are the only activities you can think of doing there.

Guest Funstorm

Greetings,

 

I'm planning to take the road trip from Hyderabad to Warangal on my CBR250R.

 

How is the road and is it worth taking a road trip?

 

Thank you
