Hirekolale Lake Reviews & Ratings

  • Good place to view sunrise and sunset... It is also a good place for photoshoot... One can also go here to exercise... It is near to the city and will require personal vehicle to visit the place. Going here in the noon during summer is not a good option as it will be hot and there is no shady place.

  • Far from the crowd of the city , you can spend some good time here. I have been here in evening as well as early morning. Morning there is no crowd at all so you can soak in the calmness but surely going to miss a sunset. So visit two times if you like such places. It's beautiful in the evening with sun is setting behind the trees. A good place to take some Fabulous pictures.

  • This lake is also called as a snake lake. We can find the snakes in the lake at rainy season. The scenic beauty of the lake is awesome. It is like scenary coming in movies. It will be a real pleasure to our eyes and has the great viewpoint in between the hills. The lake is surrounded by the hills. It will be so chill and great feel. Better to go in evenings

  • Very Scenic lake surrounded by mountains, with a view of the magnificent Mullayangiri peak at a far distance. There is no activities to do here except for some good Scenic shots for shutterbugs.

  • Beautiful place. Best to hang out with your group of friends or family. Visit in the evening to see the sunset. You'll need private vehicles to reach here though.
