Getting to Himayat Sagar: An ideal place for a family outing, it is best to drove down to the lake by car. It takes only around an hour's time to reach the lake from Hyderabad. It is best to go via NH 44 to enjoy a smooth drive to the lake.
Best Time to Visit: Any pleasant evening is a good time to visit the lake. Sunny and hot days can get very torturous so avoid going in the summer. Be prepared for a fair amount of crowd on weekends, visit during weekdays in case you would like more peace of mind. The monsoons may be a dangerous time to visit the lake due to flash floods or overflow of the reservoir.
