As the clock striked 6 in the morning. We all woke up with great excitement and energy as we are going for a night camping with our friends. We all packed all the essentials, food and water for the one day getaway. We all gathered at a common point by 9:00 am. We booked a private vehicle, as we don't have a car, which would be sufficient for 12 members. We had our breakfast on the way. We had Idly, dosa and vada along with chutney and Sambar. After having breakfast we also had tea. 

Whenever you plan for a camping make sure you are a big group, so that you can enjoy to the fullest. Pocharam dam is around 120 km away from Hyderabad. So, it took around two and a half hours for us to reach the place. By 11:30 am, we parked our vehicle and started playing games like cricket, volleyball etc. We made teams and started pulling each others legs. After playing, we prepared our whole lunch. 

We made bagara rice and chicken curry, which is everyone's favourite.The whole process of cooking made us even more closer as it was nice sharing our personal things with our loved ones. After having lunch, we had a small walk and explored. We admired at the beauty of the huge reservoir, the blue reflection of the sky falling On The Water, made the atmosphere, even more peaceful. To experience a peaceful, calm and refreshing atmosphere, with a huge water body surrounded, you can plan for camping here. Then, by the time of sunset, that is around 6:30 pm, we all started preparations for arranging our own tents. 

While few members collected sticks for campfire, the others were setting up everything for the barbecue. The boy squad were busy of setting-up music systems to add some fun to the night camp. Everything went so well, with few games and also everyone shared their own experiences and travel diaries. We then had a good sleep with satisfaction, along the shores of the Dam. Next day morning we woke up early in the morning, packed everything, enjoyed the and enchanting sunrise. Then had breakfast and participated in some fun-filled activities and games. It was a good experience filled with joy and laughter. Then packed everything and boarded the same vehicle as we have to leave the place and head towards Hyderabad.
