Laknavaram lake - Approximately 50 km away from Warangal, Laknavaram lake is located. Built by the Kakatiya rulers, this massive lake is of a bowl like structure having 13 small islands which are scattered amidst the jungle. This makes it a serene and perfect bird watching spot. Also, has a one of a kind suspension bridge connecting three islands managed and maintained by Telangana tourism department.
Few quick Tips:
1. Plan your trip during winters (October to January) as in summer it's too hot and you will not enjoy your trip to the fullest.
2. Carry sufficient cash as ATMs are rare in the villages around Warangal.
3. If you are going by train or bus please book your cabs for city travel and sightseeing in advance for a hassle free trip.
