Hyderabad to Bogatha waterfalls

 

Distance : 260 Kilometers

Drive time : 6 hours (including breaks)

 

Route:

Hyderabad --> Jangaon --> Warangal --> Mulugu --> Peddagolla gudem --> Bogatha waterfalls

 

Hyderabad to Warangal road is a mix of both 4-lane and 2-lane. Road condition is above average.

 

Warangal to Bogatha waterfalls : Average road, 2-lane. But the drive is enjoyable as you go through forest.

 

Bogatha waterfalls is a beautiful place. Water is very clean and fresh.

Waterfalls is located in the middle of the forest.

 

How to reach Bogatha Waterfalls?

You need to walk down at least 2 kilometers to visit this place. The walk itself is fun as you go through the forest.

It is not accessible via road. (less crowd :P)

 

Other places to cover en-route?

You can cover Warangal and Laknavaram Lake which is en-route.

 

Any stay options at Bogatha waterfalls?

None, nearest stay is at Warangal or Laknavaram (Telangana tourism)

 

Food(Restuarents) options at Bogatha Waterfalls?

No proper hotels. I would suggest to carry your food. It will be fun having a small picnic.

 

You can pack the food from Warangal.

The place looks so perfect for camping.. Do we need any permissions to camp at this site ?

 

No idea about permissions but this place will be very ideal for camping.

There will be some safety concerns for sure.

Nice post. Thank you for sharing.

Carrying food from Warangal seems like a good idea :)

We faced similar issue during our visit to Laknavaram.

Very few food options once we cross Warangal.

But luckily we found one Telangana tourism restaurant neat Laknavaram. It is located on the Highway.

@gowtham, it's ok to manageable. Road is in ok condition but the pot holes are too big that, you miss it and might need to send your car for repair

Water flow is still the same, similar to above pictures?

Okay, Will keep that in mind. Thank you for the heads-up. :)

Roads are bit tricky after you cross Warangal. It is mix of smooth roads and unexpected potholes.

It will kill the average speed.

Low slung sedans will cry, If you miss spotting a pothole.:P

Looks like water flow is getting low.

I guess after winter, It will become dry. :angry:

Picture taken in last month by Girish.

Few important points shared by him

 

  • Crowd is high on weekends
  • Carry food from Warangal, no proper food options available at Bogatha waterfalls
  • You can cover Laknavaram bridge en-route to Warangal.
  • Huge parking space available for cars and bikes 
  • Walking distance is less than 1 kilometer from car parking to water falls
  • Drive from Laknavaram to Bogatha is beautiful(forest drive)
  • Start early in the morning to avoid the crowd
  • Monsoon is the best time to visit
  • Carry snacks, food and water

You can stay at Warangal.

You can also try Laknavaram Telangana tourism.

But it is mostly full on weekends.

 

Do visit Laknavaram bring which is enroute to Bogatha waterfalls.

      Hyderabad to Maredumilli plan
       
      Frustrated with Hyderabad traffic and bad roads due to rains, I have decided to get out of the city and explore the farm lands of Godavari district and the forest range of Maredumilli.
      Idea is to go on a quick getaway.

      All the accommodations at Maredumilli are full.
      This did not dampen my spirits.
       
      Its not about the destination, It is the drive that matters to me.
      Did some quick research and booked accommodation at the nearest town which is Rajahmundry.

      Hyderabad to Maredumilli route plan(best route):
      Hyderabad to Maredumilli has two routes
       
      Route 1 : Hyderabad --> Suryapet --> Vijayawada --> Tanuku --> Rajahmundry --> Maredumilli
      Route 2 : Hyderabad --> Suryapet --> Khammam --> Kothagudem --> Bhadrachalam --> Chintur --> Maredumilli
       
      Route 1: It is the best route to take. Completely 4-lane till Rajahmundry
      Route 2 : Avoid it unless you are planning to cover Bhadrachalam
       
      Plan
      Day 1 : Hyderabad to Rajahmundry  Day 2 : Rajahmundry to Maredumilli Day 3 : Exploring villages around Rajahmundry Day 4 : Rajahmundry to Hyderabad

      I regularly commute on Hyderabad to Vijawayada highway, almost once in a month from the past 10 years.

      Hyderabad to Vijayawada distance :275 kilometers

      Year :2006 
       
      It is a single lane road, not enough to fit 3 vehicles at a time. It used take me 7 hours to travel from Hyderabad to Vijayawada. Blind curves. Highest accident ever occurred in the country. One of the busiest, mostly filled with trucks. Worst road condition, filled with unlimited potholes. Driving at night is a suicide.(zero visibility with those high beams) Some overtakes used to take me at least 15 minutes, Imagine 10 trucks trailing each other with no space between them, on a single lane! No proper hotels and washroom Worst fuel quality But I used to enjoy the drive, it is challenging and fun.  
       
      Year :2017(after a decade)
       
      Now it has a 4-lane road, truck lay by lanes, emergency lanes and bridges across villages. It is taking me 4 hours from Hyderabad to Vijayawada. I am saving 3 hours.  Many good hotels available, no issues with washrooms. Toll road, with road assistance and standby ambulance for safety. Continues patrol across the highway, last year a huge industrial truck was stuck on highway while taking u-turn. Patrol guys arrived within 15 minutes and took the situation under control.  

      Hotels between Hyderabad to Vijayawada

      1. Village Aharam :  Malkapur 
           First decent hotel on the highway
       
      2. Highway 9 Restaurant : Nalgonda
           Good for break fast
       
      3. Hotel Vivera : Nalgonda
          Recomended, If you are planning to diver towards Nalgonda.
       
      4. Maa palle ruchulu : before suryapet
          Village style hotel, don't expect luxury.
       
      5. Hotel 7 : suryapet
          Best in quality, very good washrooms. Recommended for families.
       
      6. Numerous hotel in Suryapet.
          You get all types verities over here.
       
      7. G-hotel : Suryapet
       
      8.Once you cross Suryapet, you won't find any proper hotels, though you can find many road side dhabas.
         Please correct If i miss anything.
       
      Fuel stations 
      You can find then in every 20 kilometers radius.

      Tolls
      It is a complete toll road, elevated 4-lane, on an average you pay around 1 rupee per kilometre, so it should be under 250/-
