Warangal is around 140kms away from Hyderabad. Once Warangal is the capital of Kakatiya Dynasty. It’s been a longtime for us to spend some time in peace away from the hustling-bustling city life. So, we planned a weekend getaway to Pakhal lake to refresh ourselves. Anyways we were in need of this break from a long time. We arrived Warangal at 8:00am (we already missed the sunrise at Pakhal lake which was quite fascinating it seems). So we thought of checking out the Ancient Warangal fort.
Mesmerizing Warangal Fort:
Pristine Pakhal Lake:After having lunch in Warangal we started to Pakhal lake. Our main motto was to visit Pakhal lake which is a man-made lake in the Pakhal wildlife sanctuary. It is about 50km east of Warangal and is well connected by road passing through Narsampet which is about 12kms away from the lake. It is one of the best spots for Bird lovers in Telangana. I would call this place as an Ornithologists hangout place.This lake is situated amidst undulating forest land hills and watching birds is a popular retreat for the tourists. This lake is constructed around 1213 A.D. by Kakatiyan Ruler, Ganapati deva and spread over an area of 30 kms.
Camping at the Pakhal Lake:There were more monkeys than tourists in this place. Till evening, monkeys were always interfering in our business. By the time monkeys gone into the wild it was already dark. Then we thought that this camping will be more awesome than Laknavaram. But there were so many insects and bugs. I would rather use a superlative degree to mention it, there were millions and millions of insects which literally showed us hell. We are preplanned for this camping as we know that camping in forests is not a joke, So we carried ASV's, DDT's, and some chemicals as a precautionary measure with us.
Everything and every attempt made by us to kill those insects gone in vain.
'What to do?' was the question raised by everyone.we waited and waited but there was no use. Around 9pm, we packed up & escaped from this hell.Then we shifted our camping to some place near Narsampet which was good one but not memorable like Laknavaram or Goa.
