The sunset is beautiful

Kinnerasani dam is approximately 14 km from paloncha and the road passes by kothagudem Thermal power station. There are lot of trees in this place. The sunset is beautiful. We can see the water gates, Small park at the base. We can reach to the end of the project by walking some distance. There will be a deer park where we can enjoy by offering them some grass. So I recommend all the people to visit this place with your family as picnic.
