Spread over an area of 130 square kilometres, the Pocharam Wildlife Sanctuary was set up in 1952 which was the hunting ground of the then Nizam. Named after the Pocharam Lake which was formed here after the Pocharam Dam was constructed on the River Allair between 1916 to 1922, this place is a scenic beauty with all the surrounding hills. The dreamlike beauty of the Pocharam Wildlife Sanctuary takes many tourists and travellers by surprise.
The Pocharam Wildlife Sanctuary provides a trekking trail which stretches over for 4.5 km and passes through the thick forest growth. It makes up for a thrilling experience for the tourists who get to enjoy the ambience of the forest along. The thin branches of the trees intertwine with each other making the jungle appear very thick. Tourists can wash their feet in the water flowing from the nearby dam. As exciting as it sounds, care needs to be taken while enjoying the trek. The place offers an experience which is fun-filled, exciting, and adventurous. It is likely to provide the best getaway from the hectic life in the midst of tranquillity and peace.
