At a distance of 29 km from Ramappa Temple, and 75 km from Warangal, Laknavaram Lake is a wonderful artificial lake situated close to Etunagaram highway (NH202). It is the large lake in the Warangal district, and among the top Ramappa tourist places.
Laknavaram Lake was built by Kakatiyas in the 13th century. It still provides water for irrigation over 50,000 acres of land. The magnificent lake is surrounded by the thick forests of Eturnagaram Sanctuary. The suspension bridge across the lake is a special attraction.
Laknavaram is one of the best places to visit around Warangal and it's a perfect getaway to spend time with family. Boating facilities are available in the lake on speed boats and motorboats. Telangana Tourism provides accommodation facilities along with a restaurant on the island in the middle of the lake.
Post monsoon is the best season to visit this place when the lake is filled with water and the surrounding hills are covered with thick vegetation. Laknavaram attracts a large number of tourists in Monsoon and winter seasons. It is advised to book accommodation in advance. No alternate accommodation is available nearby.
