“A must see Dam.. sorry OCEAN....”
Reviewed 13 August 2011

It's a must see Dam in Andhra even in India.. We came from Coimbatore to visit this Dam .. We stayed in Guntur and traveled by Road.. through the Green Chili farms, rural setting and all others.. The Park and Museum inside the island ( You need go in a small ferry..Don't remember the fee) is worth visiting and well maintained. JOB WELL DONE AP TOURISM..

“Nagarjuna Sagar Dam”
Reviewed 7 December 2009

Nagarjuna Sagar dam was built accross Kirshna rivar. It is one of civil engineering marvel. It has so many picturesque locations for nature lovers. It's reservoir has made largest man-made lake. In the middle of this lake, one can find island called Nagarjua Konda, which is largest and most important buddhist centre in South India. One has to tavel by traller to reach Nagarjua Konda, which was named after Acharya Nagarjuna, a renowned buddhist scolar and philosopher, who had migrated here from Amarvati to propagate and spread the Buddha's message of universal peace and brotherhood.

Just about 11 kms from the Nagarjunasagar Dam are the Ethipothala Waterfalls on the Chadravanka river, a tributary of the Krishna. In absolutely scenic surroundings, you can marvel at the shimmering water as it cascades down 70 feet into a lagoon. The picture postcard beauty have made this a favorite picnic spot of visitors. While at Ethipothala, another place well worth a visit is the crocodile breeding centre. Here you can safely see these reptiles from close quarters and observe their fascinating habits.

I stayed in A.P Tourism Hotel Haritha Vijay Vihar. It is located in the banks of the reservoir with a spledid view of man-made lake and sorroundings. It has got well mantained lawns, garden and rooms & restaurant. It has also gym and swimming pool.

I rate the location and facilities at this hotel are excellent. But the restaurant provides you restricted menu of your choice. You have to plan for your dinner and lunch at hotel. Otherwise you will have to spend the day starved.

“Ideal for a lazy weekend”
Reviewed 15 November 2008

So you like water and lake bodies. situated at about 130 odd kilometres from Hyderabad is this dam. It is ideal for a couple of days relaxation especially with the Andhra Pradesh tourism development corporation's guest house by the water body. This will be your base camp and you will probably be sipping your tea cuppa from the balcony or the lawn overlooking the man made lake. You can take a 90 minute boat ride in the evening to check out the Buddhist sites on an island. This trip is worth it as you will see only BLUE and GREEN colours during the rip. Surrounded only the water around the boat and greenery on the nearby hills, it is very relaxing. Mind you, the lack of crowds will be an added bonus and the experience can be ethereal. Driving down from Hyderabad will be ideal and recommended.
