  • One of the best places in Hyderabad, infact the best place if you are a nature lover. Its serene and the sunset looks amazing at this location, not far away from city but feels like you are very much away from the city pollution and crowd.

  • Very very beautiful place. Evening time, sunset view is extremly overwhelming.soothing wind and Just awesome. Must visit.

  • Visit once in the evening for the nice view of the sunset on a non cloudy day. In the morning for fresh air. This place is not a tourist destination and hence you will not find it on any advisor site. This is just a good place to visit. Do not expect any fancy seating area or any place to have food. Small time vendors sell corn and as usual some shops keep chips. Carry your own water. Good place in all. Do not forget to carry a camera and if you don't have zoom then u will be surely feeling a little shorthanded. Great place to see birds as well.

  • Vast lake. Cannot play in water. Sunset looks amazing. Quiet place, can spend some relaxing time with your family/loved one.

  • Nice place, gandipet lake, great view of sagar. Fresh air, small park inside it.
