The road from Hyderabad, to the lake is lined with beautiful paddy fields and lush green vegetation.

Pocharam Dam and Wildlife Sanctuary is spread over 130 sq km. It was a former hunting ground of the Nizams of Hyderabad. Established in the year 1952, the sanctuary gets its name from the Pocharam Lake formed after the construction of Pocharam Dam on Alair river, a tributary of Manjira River.

Nizam Bungalow(Now they call it a Haunted House) is situated near Pocharam Dam Reservoir which is constructed during 1916 to 1922. If you visit this place alone during night time, i can assure you one hell of an experience.
