One of the main centres of attraction for the town, the Srisailam Dam in Telangana is also one of the 12 largest hydroelectric projects in India. A blend of uninterrupted natural beauty and engineering genius, the Srisailam Dam emerges out of the verdant greenery of the Nallamala Hills to mark its presence. It is built across unrelenting verve of the Krishna river and is nestled in a deep canyon, surrounded by forests and sceneries, finding a home in the sound of gushing and falling water. The road up to the dam is a scenic beauty too, and the view of the Srisailam Dam is a humbling sight to behold.
One of the best things to do around the site of the Srisailam dam is to spend some quality time with your friends and family as you look over to the gurgling waters of River Krishna. The view from the top of the dam is an astonishing sight, especially when the water is released and you can see the might of its flow right in front of your eyes. Owing to its natural charms, it is a delightful destination for nature enthusiasts and photography lovers as well. A weekend picnic to this attraction is an instant fix from the stress of face-paced city life.
