    My take is Konkan. It is near to my heart. Completed my Engineering so spent most beautiful days of my life (and monsoon) there. Complete Konkan become beautiful during this season.

    Via Bangalore is good to go. Don't take the shorter route. It is very bad. Four days is good enough. On day1, Stay in the Chikmagalur town. On day2 and 3, Stay in the guest houses, these are located in hills.

    Nice post @Musafir. All the places around the western ghats region are best to visit during monsoons. Would love to list down a few for the record. 1) Chikamagalur and Kudremukh 2) Lonavla, Tamhini, Mulshi, Lavasa (All the roads and ghats around the Pavna lake) 3) Malshej ghat 4) Agumbe. 5) Few treks in the western ghat region to get beautiful views Sinhagad, Rajgad, Torna, Raigad, Harishchandragad, Tikona, Lohagad, Koraigad, Kotligad, Tung, Visapur, Andharban etc. 6) Goa is another beautiful place close to the ghats. (Beaches can be ignored) 7) Mahabaleshwar and Panchgani 8) Araku valley 9) Ooty and Kotagiri 10) Kodaikanal and Vattakanal (Best from Sept to Dec) 11) Coorg and Madikeri 12) Wayanad and Munnar

    Hi @rajashekar Just came back from the trip. Excellent place, young kids & teens will have more fun than small kids will. I have been to many jungle camps in and out of india, i felt the staff here is so helpful and supportive and go out of their way to make you feel comfortable. we (family of 3 our son is a teen ager) stayed in cottage felt safe. To see the animals in safari we got to be lucky, we spotted some malabar squirrels, sambar deer, and variety of fox can't recollect the name. birds and butterflies are a treat. the whole area is green. we had a great trip. The route we took is pretty much what google suggested, the road are good. But pre-booking the cottage is must. while coming back we visited mahanandi temple as its just 30 km from the camp. Thanks! karnool > orvakal > nandyal (NH 44 & 40)

    One of the biggest problems is accommodation. Make sure you prebook the accommodations. It will be tight in both Srisailam and Ahobilam . Expect over crowd in all the locations. Day 1 : Hyderabad to Srisailam Start early in the morning. You will reach by 11 AM. Complete the rituals. Explore around. You need to take lot of steps to visit Mallelatheertham. I feel that one day is good enough for Srisailam. Day 2 : Explore around Srisailam. Drive down to Mahanandi temple. Plan stopover at Ahobhilam. Day 3: Take a guide and go on the Ahobilam forest trek. It is beautiful during monsoon. Day 4: Drive back to Hyderabad via Bangalore highway. Based on accommodation availability you can change the plan. Roads are good, you wont feel them hectic since the distance is less. Single lane roads. Not suitable for high speed cruising. Return drive will be easy, since you will the Bangalore highway. You can cut short the trip to three days, go on a short trek in Ahobilam and drive back on the same day.

    The place is no doubt a safe one to stay and the staff is good. But, it is always advisable to do this in a group as it is amidst the forest.

    It is good, you take regular Hyd Srisailam while going and take Dornala - Atmakur route while returning on your way towards Mahanandi, there is an alternate route which goes through Dornala - Giddalur but take Atmakur route to get on to Nandyal road which I feel is faster and better

    @Shekar What a wonderful road trip, and what a beautiful birthday gift one can give to self. That cake cutting in rain (though a bit risky) was icing on cake. Appreciate for the idea and also to your travel enthusiasm. Thanks for sharing.

    Day: 3 Explore waterfalls near the resort. Waterfalls name : Jhari waterfalls. Waterfall usually opens at 9AM. Since we stayed inside the forest. We took the resort jeep and went till waterfalls, around 8 AM. Don't attempt in your own vehicles, curves are too steep. No single person is present at the waterfalls, apart from us! They charged us 500/- for ride to waterfalls 200 meter walk from the road.. After spending some time at the waterfalls, we returned back to the home stay. Had breakfast and started to Babu Budangiri. Clouds! We took some off-road trails. Once the visibility is clear, we drove further. Zero crowd, we stayed here for an hour and enjoyed the view. Photo time Breath taking view Some more pictures at the different view points. Day 4: We drove back from Kuteer to Hyderabad. We started at 9AM and reached home around 10PM. Thank you
