Sanapur Lake is located 9 km west of Anegundi, Karnataka, off Huligi-Gangavathi road, in the left bank of river Tungabhadra.
Sanapur Lake is a reservoir fed by Tungabhadra Dam canal. The scenic blue waters surrounded by bouldered hills offer quite a unique setting.
Relatively quiet, it’s a beautiful spot to enjoy sunrise or sunset.
One needs to exercise adequate caution as the waters are dynamic and moving constantly at the bottom; abound with whirlpools.
