  1. Gratitude: At the very beginning I would like to offer my sincere thanks to Admin and all other people from forum who provide valuable inputs in finalising the whole journey . I would like to Appreciate their quick responses and inputs to complete the trips. Dream: There is only one thing that comes close to my passion for cars, my love for travel. I dream of covering every nook and cranny of this country, by road. Being a frequent reader of India-Drive Team travelogues, I hope to write about my dream road trip to the Himalayas someday. I am one of lurkers on the forum here and I enjoy reading the travelogues the most. About Water falls: Note: I have copied some lines from google search and I have added some lines by my own.Please excuse Typo Error.. Mutyala Jalapatham or mutyam dhara or Veerabadhram Waterfalls is located near venkatapuram mandal.it is a hidden waterfall recently explored by locals. Unknown to many, this will be the country’s third highest waterfall could be hidden away in a remote corner of Jayashankar Bhupalpally district. According to Dr Dyavanapalli Satyanarayana, explorer, the water falls from an estimated 700 feet at Gaddalasari. If confirmed, this could be India’s third highest after the Nohkalikai falls (1,100 feet in Meghalaya) and Jog falls (Karnataka, 830 feet). The waterfall can be reached after walking 9-11 km (to reach waterfalls)from village Veerabadravaram. There is no proper road leading to the spot. “The waterfall height can be some 700 feet. If it is confirmed by taking measurements, it can be on par with the highest waterfalls of India,” “It is so high that the water does not fall to the ground directly. The flow of water is affected by the wind so that it appears like a long snake,” Forest Walk and Trek along streams (Total around 20kms of Walk in forest ) Open to Anyone who is an outdoor enthusiast expecting no luxury/comfort and can adjust with basic amenities. Trek will be little difficult in water due to slippery surface and uneven stones. Route: Before 6Kms from Bogatha Waterfalls you will find a Right turn to Venkatapuram Village From Highway to Venkatapuram village, it is around 20Kms and from their drive Exactly 5Kms. You will find one small village, can ask any local people about the waterfalls Mutyala Jalapatham or mutyam dhara or Veerabadhram Waterfalls. For simple route from highway take road to venkatapuram village, go straight till 25.3Kms and you will find small sign board of waterfalls on your left.(Can confirm from local people) Road condition is very good till Venkatapuram village. Lucky: I never expected i am having this much luck, I parked my car near one small hut and started walking into Forest to reach Waterfalls. We moved around .05 KM into forest and finally we got a lift to waterfalls by some local people who also came to visit the falls. Only Tractors can go into that forest road, muddy road with full ground clearance . It took us 1 Hour 30 mins to reach waterfalls. After Parking Tractor, we walked around 1KM to reach Waterfalls as even tractor cannot go beyond that Point. Safety: 4 Wheeler can be parked near the road or talk to any shopkeeper and pay him some money for keeping eye on our vehicle. We cannot take our 4 Wheeler on the waterfalls road as there are very big stones or Muddy area. I would suggest to go in a group as this place is very lonely and you can also take any local people as guide if you need. 2 Wheeler can go to some extent around 3-5 KMS depends on driving. Phone signals are not available once you start walking into the forest. Only BSNL network will work. Water depth is expected as 70+ Feet, for enjoying take tyre tube. Places to Stay: Laknavaram Lake – 4 Cottages & Couple of rooms available, we have to do advance booking. Tadvai Forest Camp : 6 Cottages available, We have to do advance booking. If you are not able to book any cottages or rooms in the above mention place, then you will find one lodge in Mulugu Town(Warangal) AC & non AC. From Mulugu – Laknavaram Lake is 20kms approximately From Laknawaram Lake - Tadvai Huts is 30Kms approximately Route: Hyderabad – Warangal – Mulugu – Laknawaram – Tadvai – Venkatapuram village – Muthayal Jalapatham Hyderabad – Warangal – Mulugu – Laknawaram – Tadvai – Bogathawaterfalls Places covered: 1000 Pillar temple. Bhadrakali Temple. Ramappa Temple or Ramalingeswara temple Note: Haritha Tourism is constructing new cottages with Lake view and will be mostly open for public soon(no confirmation). If people are not able to get accommodation in Laknavaram Lake or Tadavi Forest Cottages, they can book here in Ramappa Temple. Laknavaram Lake Sri Hemachala Laxmi Narsimha Swamy Devalayam (Malluru,Mulugu Mandal) About Temple: Malluru famous for Sri Ugra Narasimha Swamy temple, is located app 90 Km from Bhadrachalam(famous Sri Rama Shrine in south India) and app 130KM from Warangal City. This temple has many specialities, the height of mollaviraat Sri Narasimha Swamy is upto 10 feet. It is located in the midst of forest. The Belly part of Moolavirat idol is soft as human skin.The dwjasthambha here at the temple is nearly 60 feet in height. There is a rock formed Ugra Anjaneya Swamy Statue near to the temple. There is a continuous water flow near the temple, which flows from the top of the hills. No one knows from where the waters flows and the water flow is always same through out the year and continues same. Muthyala Jalapatham Waterfalls (Details written above) Bogatha Waterfalls Warangal entry 1000 Pillar Temple Bhadrakali Temple Bhadrakali Lake Warangal Fort : Not sure why this is called as Fort.It looks like a park with collection of ancient stones. Ramappa Lake Ramappa Temple Laknavaram Lake Tadvai Forest Sri Hemachala Laxmi Narsimha Swamy Devalayam (Malluru,Mulugu Mandal) Mutyala Jalapatham or mutyam dhara or Veerabadhram Waterfalls Bogatha Waterfalls I am not able to upload Videos, will try to share in Whats app Group or please suggest me how to upload the video.

  5. Dear friends, This is my very first travelogue in India Drive. Though I have made several trips, I didn't write anything up here. Travel Date 03/31/2018 – 04/02/2018 from Hyderabad to Gokarna & Murdeshwar in Ford EcoSports. This must have been one of the most exciting and in a way unplanned vacation, I had with my office team. Though we had marked the dates almost a couple of days ago, we were a little unsure till the last minute whether we wanted to really go to Gokarna or not. Finally, on Thursday we decided to go and informed my team to come to office on Friday along with their luggage. Friday Morning, I had a good Sleep so that I can drive in night. My team works in EST timings, so we planned to start our trip by 1AM but due to some work it got delayed to 3.00AM and Finally we hit the road at 3.15AM. Route Taken: Hyderabad - Mahbubnagar - Raichur - Sindhanur - Hubbali - Sathoddi Falls - Shivapura Hanging Bridge - Yellapur - Gokarna - Murdeshwar – Raichur -Mahbubnagar – Hyderabad. Total Distance: 1600 kms Day 1 : Sathoddi Water Falls and Shivapura Hanging Bridge. Day 2 : Gokarna & Mudeshwar Night Stay at White House Beach resort (Tent Accommodation) - Gokarna River Kali Murdeshwar Beach Shivapura Hanging Bridge Sun Set time at Murdeshwar Beach Murdeshwar Night view
