Serenity Meets Splendor

Tourist Attraction

In Telangana, the close proximity of tranquil Eturnagaram Wildlife Sanctuary and Bogatha Waterfall, both in Mulugu district, offers a perfect getaway from a busy and bustling city for travelers and nature lovers, weaving together a narrative of serenity and beauty and promising an unforgettable journey.

Hidden within Telangana, there is a peaceful sanctuary where nature reveals its miracles and captivates wanderers on an adventure full of tranquility. Eturnagaram Wildlife Sanctuary in Mulugu district, Telangana, near Warangal, is an integrated tribal development town with a biodiversity-rich sanctuary. Around 30 km and a half-hour drive takes to Bogatha Waterfall, colloquially called ‘Telangana Niagara of Telangana’ and ‘Telangana Niagara Jalapatham', which is the second largest waterfall in the state. Both unique in their own way, they draw the attention of every visitor, enthralling them with an all-encompassing experience that is sure to leave a lasting impression on their hearts for a long time.

Eturnagaram Wildlife Sanctuary

Situated 100 km from Warangal and 250 km from Hyderabad and spanning over 806 sq km in the Mulugu district, the sanctuary, a testament to the region’s rich biodiversity and natural beauty, is easily accessible. A gently expanding layout displays from the hillsides to steep slopes, with the Godavari River flowing through the place. It is characterized by a tropical dry deciduous forest inhabited mainly by large teak trees that are more than 60 ft. 

This amazing ecosystem provides a very charming environment that is even more harmonized with the biennial celebration of Sammakka Saralamma Jatara at the sanctuary. Home to a diverse range of fauna and with the largest Gaur populations in the state, including Tigers, Leopards, Wolves, Sloth Bears, and various deer species, the sanctuary is divided by the perennial water source, ‘Dayyam Vagu’, housing reptiles like Mugger crocodiles, Pythons, Cobras, and Kraits.

The best time to visit is from October to May, with accommodation options ranging from Forest Cottages to the ITDA Guest House at Eturnagaram. Whether arriving by rail to the nearest station in Warangal, via air to Hyderabad, or by road, one of the oldest sanctuaries in Telangana invites exploration and appreciation of nature’s wonders. Its unique features, such as climbers and historical elements like tree fossils, make it a captivating destination. The Sarvai area and caves add a touch of historical significance to this wildlife haven.
