Towering trees, different hued flowers growing and wild, a cobalt blue lake is what meets your eye once you enter the vicinity of Shamirpet Deer Park . The national park lies 24 kilometers from Hyderabad. The Shamirpet lakes give a fresh lease of life to the area and its residing animals explaining why wildlife frequents this area during summer. Shamirpet Deer Park stretches over a vast area of deciduous forest which gives shelter to a wide array of animals.
We recommend you to carry a lunch pack as this is an ideal place for a quiet picnic. The herds of deers moving in and out of the area at all times provide good entertainment for the sore eyes. The lake acts as a life giving force to these quite animals. Oft you could see the mark of the deer hoofs by the pool side. With the onset of the monsoon the lake begins to overflow, flooding the adjacent area as well. This place houses a quaint temple dedicated to the local deity of Katta Maisamma.
Shamirpet Deer Park, Andhra Pradesh bustles with activities on weekends on account of get together and picnics that are held in the precincts of the park. In close proximity to the park you have a tourist lodge where you can put up for the night. But the very fact that the accommodation is not situated at the heart of the reserve ensures that its pristine beauty and natural habitat stays intact. It is a perfect weekend destination-to be explored and left behind.
