The reservoir is surrounded by lush pine and coniferous trees. The reservoir has a tiny island and submerged trees with tall hillocks as the back ground. Every curve along lake presents a different view of the scenery. There is a parking and boating facility for visitors.

Attached to this boating point there is vanya viahri with three double bed roomed cottages near the flood gates of the reservoir allowing a beautiful scene while the water is released. this rooms are also maintained by Gandhinagaram CBET though the actual owner is AP Forest Department.
