Unwind in Eturnagaram Wildlife Sanctuary
BEST HOLIDAY DESTINATION NEAR HYDERABAD
“Away from the cityscape and incessant hustle and bustle of Hyderabad, Eturnagaram offered me comfort, warmth and direct interaction with the abundance of the wild, unlike just being in a zoology park,” says Priyanka Reddy, a Feriado Traveller who recently chose to wake up to the chirpings of the woodland.
One of the oldest sanctuaries in the state of Telangana, the Eturnagaram Wildlife Sanctuary is situated at a distance of 110 km from Warangal and about 250 km from the city of Nizams. Declared as a sanctuary in the year 1952 because of its rich biodiversity, the area is full of deciduous and teak trees proudly standing tall and spreading their charm.
HOW IS IT THE PERFECT LOVE AFFAIR WITH NATURE?
Spreading over a wide area of over 806 sqkm, the sanctuary is a rich display of various different species of flora and fauna. The sanctuary is bordered by the ever-beautiful Laknavaram Lake which makes it the most perfectly positioned and sought tourist destination in the state. Dominated by a thick blanket of vegetation and timber species, the sanctuary also houses one of the most quality teak woods in our nation. Along with this cover, Eturnagaram has exquisite species of wildlife like Indian Gour, Giant Squirrel, Sloth Bear, Indian Bison, Black Buck, Chinkara, Tigers, Four Horned Antelope and many more. The sanctuary is beautifully divided into two parts by a waterbody named Dayyam Vagu in the local language. This place is a perfect space for you to take a break from a walk in the forest area. Simply dip your toes in the stream and feel the blast of freshness make its way.
