At a distance of 4 km from Rampachodavaram Bus Stand and 21 km from Maredumilli, Bhupathipalem Reservoir is an earthen dam situated at Bhupathipalem near Rampachodavaram town in East Godavari district of Andhra Pradesh. It is one of the popular Maredumilli Tourist Places.
The Bhupathipalem Reservoir Project is a medium irrigation project constructed on Seethapalli Vagu, which is a hill stream and tributary to river Godavari. The project is intended to provide irrigation facilities to an extent of 11,526 acres of tribal ayacut and to also provide drinking water to 32 villages in Rampachoadavaram & Gangavaram Mandals of East Godavari district.
The reservoir is surrounded by lush pine and coniferous trees. The reservoir has a tiny island and submerged trees with tall mountains as the back ground. Every curve along lake presents a different view of the scenery. There is a parking and boating facility for visitors. Only paddle boats are available here. The absences of mechanized boats make the waters still and reflections of the mountains can be seen as a big natural mirror.
Boating Timings: 10 AM - 5 PM
