    Hyderabad to Chaya Someshwara Temple - day trip

    Adding few more pics. Thanks!
  3. Distance : 150 Kilometres to temple site. Approx Route we took : Gachibowli via Nehru Outer Ring Rd and NH65 Road condition : Excellent Restaurants : You can find many on the highway like Vivera, N grill. we had lunch at Hotel Durga near Narketpally. Food is excellent and good service. Recently went a day trip to (12-Aug-2019) Chaya Someshwara Swamy Temple at Panagal, is an Ancient Hindu Temple, dedicated to Lord Shiva, located in Nalgonda District of Telangana. we started around 8 am and reached the temple by 11. The Deity in the temple is famous as "Chaya Someshwara Swamy" due to the Vertical Chaya (shadow) present in daylight, on the Shiva Lingam forming a permanent shadow of a pillar. This shadow is constant and visible from sunrise to sunset everyday. The construction of this temple is marvellous which features such exceptional sight. The whole atmosphere is very peaceful and serene. The temple premises is cool and so much reminded us the Ramappa temple. Around 1 pm we started back to Hyderabad, roads are excellent, reached Home by 4 pm. Over all its a relaxing drive and pleasant darshan. Sharing some pics.

    Drive to Akka Mahadevi caves

    @Rangerexcellent pics, and write-up. the rope ways are working now? i heard they were not operating, the last time i went. (almost an year back) Thank you!
  5. @sagar Place is safe, and the staff make sure we stay safe & comfortable. Food is limited varieties but served fresh,, its homely and tasty. rest is up to us to take precautions and not step out in the unknown territory in dark. But yes, place is visited by mostly group of people/families rather than couples. @Ranger Thank you.
  6. 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)

    Trip To Mantralayam from Hyderabad

    excellent write-up and pics! it's always better to go via kurnool to mantralayam. shouldn't trust google shortcuts as it will try to redirect us, we are on the kurnool highway. we did that mistake and ended up being on terrible village road for 70 kms. but the scenery was worth, but we got delayed by 2 hours.

    Thanks @sagar went by flight as the tour plan itself was for 10 days. Our itenary was Guwahati>Nameri National Park>Dirang>Tawang>Sangetsar Tso Lake>Tawang>Bomdila> Guwahati In arunachal pradesh we traveled in Innova where some roads are excellent some are quite an adventure itself. but the greenery and cleanliness is so wonderful. The whole trip was arranged by My Voyage Tours & Travels who did a fantastic job on arranging transportation, lodging, sightseeing. Highly recommended if anyone likes to visit the Northeast
  11. Best time to be on the road. this is a magnificent temple, visited twice here. this one makes a nice day trip! excellent photography btw 👏
