Just two hours away from Hyderabad in Mahboobnagar District is KoilKonda which offers you a picturesque lake, dam, and a fort. There is a shortcut from the main road of the village, which the locals can help you reach the lake. And when you finally reach, you will be left speechless by the amount of open land you will see around there. Trust me, a few hours of the visit will not suffice and you would want to stay there for the night with some wonderful things you can afford to do and wake up to a lovely sunrise and the sound of fresh water.
With a campfire, barbeque, chilled drinks, tents to sleep in, soothing music and a bunch of mad friends, your weekend is sorted.
The KoilSagar Project Dam is located at a km away and you can visit it next to check out the view of the entire lake from the top. And about 3-4 km away is the Koilkonda Fort too. Climb up to witness the huge dam and the lake.
Best time to visit: Monsoon (June - October).
Food alternatives, campfire sticks - can be provided by local people there at a nominal cost.
