“My maiden visit to Kondakarla Avva”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 13, 2013

Hi!! all nature lovers. During mid-July, along with my family, I visited kondakarla avva. Yes, it is a big lake. May be, as stated, second largest lake in Andhra Pradesh. Though it is mansoon days, in India, still there was less water. Yes, there were white lili plants ( remember: not lotus) inside avva. However, very less flowers are visible. As locals stated, best time to visit between Nov to Feb to see migratory birds and uncountable lili flowers. If you want to get inside the lake in taal (a plant like coconut) trunk made boat, must come in the morning ( when fisher folks get inside the lake) or during evening ( when fisher folks get out of the lake). Learn Telugu to visit this place or bring a friend who knows telugu ( to communicate with fisher folks for hiring boat). I will advice to visit this lake from Vadrapalli end, in stead of Kondakarla end.

“Great Place. Peacefull”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 13, 2013

A 75 minute drive from Vizag and a must see. Its serene and beautiful. Get there early morning or in the evening to see the birds. There are only basic facilities. Boats are made of two hollow tree trunks joined together with an inverted " Charpai " for seating. These boats can be hired for 30 minutes where the boatman will take you around the lake. You can pick fresh lotus stems as you enjoy the boat ride. You will need about 3 to 4 hours to cover this place.
