Unless you start very early in the morning, one day would not be sufficient for you to cover this destination.

You can plan it over a weekend and club Laknavaram, Ramappa Temple and local attractions in Warangal for a wholesome trip.

Recommended Route: Hyderabad – Bogatha Waterfalls – Kongala Waterfalls – Tadvai Huts – Laknavaram – Ramappa Temple- Warangal (Fort, Thousand Pillars Temple etc) – Hyderabad

Where to stay?

You could plan your stay at Laknavaram for the overnight stay at the TSTDC property at the lake.

Pro tip: you can stay at Tadvai Huts instead of Laknavaram and head over to Laknavaram in the morning for a comfortable journey and visiting all places of attraction.

Kongala Waterfalls

Kongala Waterfalls is just a little under 15 minutes of drive from Bogatha Waterfalls.

This waterfall is famous as V waterfalls among locals and is a 45 minute trek to this hidden treasure.
