  1. Thanks for sharing the detailed article... Very useful.
  2. Very recently I drive between Exit 12 and 6 for almost 60 kms, around 9pm. I felt just slept for few milli seconds since it was almost deserted!!!
  3. For me this is always is perfect plan. Start early, take off by sunset. I'm not at all comfortable driving in artificial lights.
  4. Even my personal experience with water is same. Take more water, you have to take a pee break every hour. Very helpful.
  5. So here is the quick update from the dates of Oct 27 & 28, 2019. PS: I'm still amateur photographer, plz bear with me for any sub standard pics. The water flow at Ettipottala water falls was awesome. Somebody told us, we can even reach down upto the water, if we take down way from temple on the left side of ticket counter. Looking at the monkey menace, we did not pursue. Tried to explore inside power generation facility. You need an inside staff approval for the visit. 2 hrs of time wasted only for a 10 min visit, that too we were not allowed to go down. Somebody suggested to visit Anupu. Immediately after crossing the RTA check post of AP, took right turn and reached Vijaypuri South. From there, took the road towards Macherla for ~8 kms, this Anupu is located. This is some kind of excavation site. It has big garden which is used for picnic spot for locals. Going further down, this Anupu beach is located, can drive easily. I don't know, why they call it as beach. This area is full of fishermen. Not recommended to stay long. (the last snap) Since, its my first post in this forum, don't know how to write the descriptions of pics...
  6. Hello everyone, Just a quick update on this weekend trip (Oct 27-28) 1. There's road work is going on between Mallepalli and Thungathurthy, don't know how long it will take to complete. Though we can drive well, this is just FYI. 2. Currently ALL boating including Nagarjuna Konda island has been stopped. The reason being cited as recent incident in Godavari river. 3. The gates were still opened, though reduced to 4 from 8, when we last saw. 4. Ettipotala has full water flow. 5. Explored Anupu beach (though i'm comfortable calling it beach), as boating option was not available. Its located beyond South Vijjaupuri towards Macherla road. Funnily gMaps location is correct, but address is showing in Chittor dist. ( https://goo.gl/maps/QaZX2p2MRKkjPUXaA ) I have not seen any post related to this location on this forum. If gets time, will try to put some pics. Thanks for your time.
  7. Hi @Ranger I'm planning to visit this Sunday, 27th. Going with family, is there boat ride available now for island?

    Driving tips for newbies

    Dear Sagar, Thanks for your advice. Really appreciate you guys taking time out and giving valuable tips. The small ghat section at Lonavala was unexpected! Somehow managed it. These downward safety tips are very useful. I like your last line! I always like to drive safe, since I travel with the whole family.

    Dear Ranger, That's exactly my wife wants to go. Since we're driving mostly on NH44, not sure whether we can make it in a single drive without break.

    A trip to Warangal and Laknavaram

    Nice write up Jagan. Need one suggestion for Laknavaram overnight stay. Is it safe for a family to stay? I mean have you seen any family staying back during 🌃 time at Haritha resort... I was planning to stay in Warangal/HNK rather than near lake. This safari is from Toursim board or from private firm? Thank you.

    Dear Sridhar, First Big Thanks for your inputs. That's what I did and stayed in 2nd gear. In actual scene, exactly at the hair pin bend another vehicle was coming down.So I applied little brake then move ahead. That's an experience!
