About Pocharam Wildlife Sanctuary

The Pocharam Wildlife Sanctuary is located on the shores of the Pocharam Lake. Spreading over an area of around 130 sq km, this sanctuary covers regions of Nizamabad and Medak districts. The sanctuary, having southern tropical mixed dry deciduous forests, provides natural habitat to five species of antelope and deer.

This densely covered forest area is home to leopard, wild dog, forest cat, wolf, sloth bear, jackal, sambar and nilgai. The four horned antelope, chinkara and chital are some of the other animals inhabiting the sanctuary.

The Pocharam Reservoir is the closest water body to the sanctuary, where birds like bar-headed goose, brahminy duck and painted stork can be spotted. The best time to visit this sanctuary is between the months of November and January.
