So, the next day the king followed the eagle and found the Lord Vishnu idol between Karapakala hills and Kothakota. He constructed this beautiful Ranganayaka Swamy temple close to the Ratna Pushkarini Lake and Lord instructed to build temple at a place where the Eagle disappears - thats how a temple has been constructed here and there is a huge water body where a reservoir is also built . It took 35 years to complete the temple and its an architecture marvel - ideal for Bird Lovers and Nature Lovers for its serene and Peaceful atmosphere and Surroundings Toilets are available near the temple and small shop where one can have some snacks or packed chips , cool drinks and water bottles are available. I have seen few pre-wedding photo shoots from near by villagers happening at this place and this temple has also been shown in different telugu movies and few by SS Rajamouli too Temple Timings: The temple is open for the visitors from Morning 6:00 AM to 1:00 PM and Evening 4:00 PM to 8:00 PM. -- We Started at 6:00 A: from Hyderabad - Except Crossing Shamshabad No traffic has been encountered and cool nice breezy weather added much to the Monday Morning Drive and we could reach the Temple by 9:30 Route was all straight like arrow and Turn towards Pebbair and From there around 11 kms inside we could reach the temple Let the Pics do the talking

    Cut off Kanyakumari from this list covering Mahabalipuram - Pondy - Dhanushkodi and back, I am sure that will cut down some distance!

    @Rangeri see this as the next destination .. how difficult is the terrain overall? During my Spiti trip i found driving post 9pm towards reckong peo to be the toughest and post sunset at Hikkim/Koumik... When you were describing the roads my brain was remembering these roads ... So you took Mirik route only to go towards Nepal is it? What was total km covered? Duster got new tyres before the trip (they look fresh ). How commercial is sikkim compared to shimla and manali (not the spiti valley)?

    Fantastic trip guys, congratulations! You guys earned it, unlike the commercial crowd who travel via Air. Good to see that you guys have decided to start the log. It is a lengthy trip. Capturing all the details will be very difficult. Try to post the pictures/details on Day to Day basis. You can follow the below format. https://www.india-drive.com/index.php?/topic/1019-hyderabad-to-sikkim-road-trip/

    Hi Everyone Myself Trisha this is my first post. I am sharing story of my dandeli visit and some birds photographs by my friend Chris. Dandeli is truly a heaven for Bird watcher, I am a great fan of birds, I based in Goa and after 15 years of my first day on earth i realize that there is a place near Goa Name Dandeli... being a wildlife enthusiast it was surprised for me. It was like i got a treasure. I remember in 2018 I stayed in Dandeli for 3 days (it was a 2 night package) there was a lots of bird chirping around me near the farmhouse where i stayed. here what my friend Chris captured from Dandeli Coppersmith Barbet Chrimson Sunbird Chestnut Tailed Starling Fish Eagle Great White Egret Not only bird there are black panther, bear, leopard you can spot. Jeep tours in Dandeli wildlife sanctuary are available and its an adventure of a lifetime where you get to witness the natural habitat of wild animals, exotic birds, and unusual reptiles. Dandeli is a Photographer and wildlife lover delight. The place is abuzz with water adventure that rekindles your desire to enjoy the thrills and spills of the sport.
