Sanapur Lake is a reservoir fed by Tungabhadra Dam canal. It is beautiful to watch deep blue lake in middle of boulders. You will not be able to see lake till you reach very close to it as it is completely hidden. We were free that day so decided to explore the nearby places also, there are small villages before Sanapur lake and after crossing the lake there is a canal along the road and hills of boulders both the sides which was scenic to watch while riding rented scooter.
After Exploring the nearby area we rested under a balanced stone. It was very soothing to lay down under the shadow and feel the cool breeze of lake.
Sanpur Lake is a paradise for cliff divers many people with there Gopro were indulge in cliff diving. Apart from that you can enjoy coracle ride at the Sanapur lake.
