A short drive out of Secunderabad brings you to the pristine lake of Shamirpet. The spot is popular with picnickers who come here for its serenity and for the Deer Park adjoining it. Hear the joyous laughter of little children as they rejoice at the sight of flocks of deer being fed by the Deer Park staff.

Weekends and holidays present a contrasting scene as groups of families or friends converge on this popular picnic spot to unwind and have a good time. Visitors generally carry their picnic hampers since there is no cafeteria available close by. The adventurous prefer to do their cooking amongst the greenery and rocks.

The Lake has a small dam with a few flood gates.The Kattamaisamma temple is situated at the beginning of the Bund. You will often see motorists halting and offering prayers to the diety who is said to protect travellers who pass over the bridge. The Andhra Pradesh Tourism board runs a small resort with quaint little cottages. The resort runs the only restaurant in the area.

"Memorable days at Shamirpet"

  • 6.0/7
  • Posted Feb 5, 2016
The place is very nice, peaceful and lovely. You can see a lot of birds. Lake is nice and you can spend as much time you want to. Lake Resort is nearby if you are from Hyderabad you don't need it but if you are not resident you can stay there, and it is really a good place to visit. Enjoyed my time spent over there. Would love to visit it sooner.

"Nice lake view place"

  • 5.0/7
  • Posted Sep 9, 2015
Located on Karimnagar Highway - Outskirts of the city. 18 kms from JBS Bus station. Nice to visit in between 4pm to 6pm (or) 6am to 9am. Night time visit not at all recommended. Recommended to visit in a gathering. We have a small temple on the bank of the lake. And we have few Dabas and Resorts nearby.

"This lake is so big"

  • 5.5/7
  • Posted Oct 11, 2014
We really enjoyed because we had no issues with bad smell of water, the lake was cool and we had a great lunch there. We took our lunch from our homes and had it there by sitting on mats and carpets which were taken with us too along.
