Pakhal Lake in Warangal

Interested? Contact for Details
Location: in Warangal district, 40 km east of Warangal, Andhra Pradesh
Area: c. 1500 ha
Altitude: 85-90 m

Description of site: A small, freshwater lake set in rolling hill country with good forest cover. The lake was created in the 16th century by the construction of an earthen dam which was renovated in 1918; it is fed by numerous ephemeral and semi-permanent streams. The lake and its environs form the core area of the Pakhal Wildlife Sanctuary. Although a relatively small lake (maximum extent 1500 ha), Pakhal is of considerable significance as it remains in an undisturbed situation well within a sanctuary. Laknavaram Lake (600 ha) is 20 km to the north, and both lakes lie some 60 km west of the Godavari river. The entire area was once the hunting preserve of the Nizam of Hyderabad

Climatic conditions: Tropical monsoon climate, with an average annual rainfall of 1225 mm and a temperature range of 15-45°C

Principal vegetation: The lake supports a luxuriant growth of aquatic and emergent marsh vegetation. The extensive grasslands around the lake are composed of Apluda mutica, Echinochloa colonum, Eragrostis pilosa, E. tenella, Hackelochloa granularis, Heteropogon contortus, and Vetiveria zizanoides. Dominant trees near the lake include Barringtonia acutangula and Xeromphis uliginosa. The sanctuary protects extensive tropical deciduous forest with a few evergreen species

Fauna: The lake is known to support large concentrations of migratory waterfowl during the winter months, but no details are available. Fish species include Catla catla, Labeo rohita, and Ophicephalus striates. The forested areas of the sanctuary support Tiger (Panthers tigris), leopard (P. pardus), and sloth bear (Melursus ursinus) together with a variety of ungulates

Special floral values: The lake vegetation is of considerable interest in that it remains in a relatively undisturbed condition
