Left Hyderabad at morning 4:30 am and were out of the city by 5 am. Awesome roads allowed me to touch 80-90 kmph average.
The Nagarjunasagar dam is a standing testimony of Indian engineering marvel. It is the worlds largest masonry dam and the third largest man made reservoir built on river Krishna.
Isn't is she cute?
In all probability you will find her at this bridge road. She makes her living by posing with tourists.
The dry basin on the other side of the dam
The way to launch station has a few great view points of the Dam
This is at the Nagarjunasagar launch station
Very near to Nagarjunasagar is the Ethipothala waterfall. This is another mind blowing site with a cavernous waterfall that displays itself in full splendour during monsson. The waterfall has created a beautiful lagoon below. The stream tumbles into a 22m deep gorge, near the falls is the breeding site for various crocodiles After sunset, the waterfalls are illuminated by dynamic lighting. APTDC has Punnami restaurant here with two rooms attached.
Ideal for an overnight stay.
