#One Baleno#6 Souls#One destination#tones of memories#Bucket list tick#Gandikota Belum caves Trip planning started 6 months before and it kept on changing. Finally accommodation booked and trip scheduled on 24.Jan.2020. Thanks to Ksk (Sathish) and Dishari for continuous guidance on route and stay. Car: Baleno ZETA CVT Members: 4 Adults and 2 kids Places visited: Gandikota & Belum caves. One can visit places like Owk reservoir, Yaganti temple, Orvakal rock garden based on time availability. Route taken: Hyd-Kurnool-Nandyal-Gandikota-Belum caves-Banaganapali-Betamcherla-Kurnool-Hyd Road conditions: - Hyd-Kurnool-Nandyal: Roads are good - Nandyal-Gandikota: Roads are good. 50 km before Gandikota roads are average to bad and passes through villages. - Gandikota-Belum caves-Banaganapali-Betamcherla-Kurnool : Roads are average and passes through villages. Once you touch NH40 then roads are good. - Kurnool-Hyd: Roads are good. - Route map provided for ref. Distance traveled: ~ 800 KM Toll charges (Fastag): Rs. 650 Petrol expanse: Rs. 3700 Difficulties: Trip was awesome, except Aarav (my son) fall sick on day of trip with viral fever. But throughout trip he supported us with his smile. The complete success of trip goes to him. At Gandikota you need to wear good shoes to walk on rocks along with comfortable cloths. Avoid it during summer & heavy rains. People with breathing and BP related issues should avoid Belum caves. Stay option at Gandikota: Option 1: Non AC tents Cost is Rs. 1000 per person with food on twin sharing basis. The only problem is during rainy season this will not be good. Also for common washroom, you need to travel 500 m. Option 2: AC tents Very costly around Rs. 3000 per person with food on twin sharing basis. Sometime even they charge Rs 3500. Tents without food charges will be Rs. 3000 on twin sharing basis. Need online booking via freakout. Washroom is attached to tent. Opion 3: AC rooms at Hariths resorts We found this good and reasonable. Per room cost is Rs 1600 from Mon-Wed and on Thur-Sun it will be Rs. 2000 (taxes extra). Rooms are good and 500 m away from site. Rooms being limited we need to book online via AP tourism website. Food options at Gandikota Only food option is Haritha resort (if you have not booked tents). We found food is average and can be manageable. We have carried electric cooker and prepared food by our self. Food options at Belum caves There is a small hotel available near to booking window. They serve cold drink, water and snacks. We found food is average and can be manageable. You can enjoy this trips in 2 days. I advise you to make it on weekdays as there will be less rush. For us it took 3 days as we are travelling with kids and we don’t want to drive in night and early mornings. Disclaimer: Not all of the photos are taken by me. Few are from my friends mobile.

jay_chitti posted a topic in HyderabadWe wish to enjoy the monsoon rains and want to disconnect from this city busy life and pressures. Want to explore some forest & greenery places and some time for devotional places as well. We decided to visit "NallaMalla Jungle Camp - Pacherla" and booked accommodation through its website (http://nallamalaijunglecamps.com) Car : Fiat Punto 90HP Places Visited : Nalla Malla Jungle Camp, Srisailam Route Taken : Miryalaguda - Nagarjuna Sagar - Macherla - Nalla Malla Jungle Camp - Srisailam - Dindi - Miryalaguda Distance : 700kms (Round Trip - approx) We booked our accommodation and started from Miryalaguda on Aug 25th - 5AM. Reached Nagarjuna Sagar dam by 6am, took some pics on the dam and enjoyed the cool climate. From Nagarjuna Sagar, we reached Macherla and visited "chennakesava swamy temple" and headed to "Forest Camps" via "giddalur". The road condition was really good and it went through some forest areas which provides pleasant driving feel. We took the road towards "Nandyal" from "Giddalur" and travelled for about 35kms to reach "Forest Camp". This 35kms road is driver's paradise with full of mountains and ghat sections. It was raining heavily when we visited and added more beauty to the place. The real fun of driving starts here with this road and its curves ... This 35kms road condition was pretty awesome with no pot holes and full of tress on both sides. Here are small videos of road condition https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B2uIlB3_8OgJYXg4UHpEekdfNUE/view?usp=sharing https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B2uIlB3_8OgJMFJ2VlFsaXlPdkk After 4 hours of journey, we finally reached our destination The accommodation provided was pretty clean with all facilities. They welcomed us with hot tea (welcome drink) as the climate is damm cool. Some pictures of the jungle camp : Few pics from Jungle Safari : There you can spot the old railway bridge which was destroyed long ago (that bridge even flashed in few movies). Even they arranged nice camp-fire after our dinner. Time for some sport in the jungle camp :- After our pleasant stay in the jungle camp, we headed towards srisailam. After having darshan of the Great Mallikarjuna Swamy, we headed to Miryalaguda via Dindi ( its my wife's turn to drive me to home ). Overall, it was really good experience for us and enjoyed our trip alot. Even its economical too when considering stay packages at Nalla Malla Jungle Camp.
