After Waterfalls and Lakes, The most Searched topic by many people who request with respect to a water body is Dams Near Hyderabad.
Well Most probably the largest Dam in the history of both Telugu states will be Nagarjun Sagar Dam, But now the two most prestigious projects are Kaleswaram Project in Telangana and Polavaram Project in Hyderabad.
The are many Small Projects which work as Dams under the Package of Kaleswaram Project.
But many Dams are as far as 200kms from the City, Many are near Karimnagar, Nizamabad, and Warangal. There are small reservoirs like Osman Sagar and Himayat Sagar, But that will not be satisfactory.
So people planning need to keep in mind that it takes at least 8 hrs up and down to visit these dams, If you just want to see and come please plan to leave as early as possible and also another advantage is here near dams there will be many other historic places and hangout places which you cannot miss, There will also be stays at harithavanam hotels which you can opt and also OYO rooms are also available.
