One needs about 3 to 4 hours to properly cover this bird sanctuary.
This area is rural and no good accommodation is available close to the lake except one recently developed private guest house -Raju Garu guest house. Usually tourists visit this lake during day time and return to Anakapalle (30 minutes) or Visakhapatnam (2 hours) by road.
