Hyderabad to warangal one day trip

Hyderabad to warangal one day trip

Breakfast was complementary for us. (Check before you book). I heard from my friends, they did not serve complementary breakfast for them.Lucky we!!.

Those who booked this hotel can go inside near the gate. Rest have to park their vehicle outside and have to walk to the entry gate. Since we had booked the rooms there,there were no entry fee but for others they had to book a ticket costing Rs 10 INR. Boat riding cost was 150 Rs each ferry /per head and it was 30 minutes ride.The night had a different beauty. The reflection of moon on the lake was just awesome.There was one RO treatment plant inside of the Island. But I would suggest to buy water bottle from them or carry.
The island is protected with mesh-net but that was having lots of gaps.It was said that there are crocodile in the lake. So be careful with your kids and before you jump in the lake for a swim.

During night lot of flies entered into our room which forced us to switched off the light for few minutes. After half an hour, we were accustomed with the situation.
Do check the lock of the rooms and window. One of my friend reported the lock of the window was not working for them.
Next day we wake up at around 8:30 AM. They served Tea at rooms. After the tea , we went straight to cafeteria for breakfast. We knew a long drive was coming. We checked out at 9:30 AM and started next day driving.
Tips:

  1. 103,104,105 were the best room there. So try to get those.
  2. The area seemed to be secure. After 6PM the security did not allow anybody inside island.
  3. They did not  have dedicated covered parking. Better if you carry car cover with you. But they allowed us to drive inside main gate near the bridge.
  4. Mostly there were no network. Only airtel worked.

Journey to Ramappa lake:
Journey to Ramappa

Ramappa Lake: journey towards the Ramappa lake was just fabulous. The road condition was ok.
The more we advanced towards the  lake more the beauty of the nature flashed. Finally we reached the lake. There was a boating-facility available. It was Rs 30 INR/per head per trip for 15-20 mins of boat ride. Since it was raining, we had to drop the plan.

Ramappa temple was beside the lake. it was built in 12th to 13 th century. We were spell bound by the beauty of the architecture of the temple. Even the sculpture was superb.The structure were made block by block. A superior example of ancient three  dimensional work. Unfortunately no body was preserving the great work.This superb piece of engineering survived many natural calamities, including earthquake.

We reached here  at around 11:30 am and started our journey to pakhal lake at around 12:30 pm.
There were no snacks stall available near the temple. (may be we went in a wrong season)

It took almost 2 hours to reach to pakhal lake. The only bad thing happened to us was to save our 5 KM,google diverted us to a muddy road.It was a horrible experience. Both the cars were skidding left and right. After a lot of off roading test, we finally reached to the original road. Initially we thought that the lake was situated in a remote corner, hence without asking the locals we took the road.Seeing the good road, everybody were happy.

We did a little off roading again to reach to the last point of motorable road. It was very near to the lake.This place had a haritha hotel long back. This is the 8th best lake of the world and 2nd best lake in India. It was told that the great kakatiya king engineered this lake for drinking and water for irrigation for nearby 4 mondals.Not sure why tourism department was not giving importance to this lake. The best part was to watch sun rise or sun set.
