Day 2- Srisailam Local

Day 3- Start to Mahanandi -- stay in mahanandi or start to Ahobhilam?

Please suggest is this fine or an compress this plan. or can we add any other stops.

How about the road condition from Srisailam to mahanandi.

Thanks in Advance.

One of the biggest problems is accommodation.

 

Make sure you prebook the accommodations. 

It will be tight in both Srisailam and Ahobilam .

Expect over crowd in all the locations. 

 

 

Day 1 : Hyderabad to Srisailam 

Start early in the morning. You will reach by 11 AM. 
Complete the rituals. Explore around.

 

You need to take lot of steps to visit Mallelatheertham.

 

I feel that one day is good enough for Srisailam. 

 

Day 2 : 

Explore around Srisailam.
Drive down to Mahanandi temple. 

Plan stopover at Ahobhilam.

Day 3: 
Take a guide and go on the Ahobilam forest trek. 

It is beautiful during monsoon.

 

Day 4:
Drive back to Hyderabad via Bangalore highway. 

 

Based on accommodation availability you can change the plan.

Roads are good, you wont feel them hectic since the distance is less. 

Single lane roads. Not suitable for high speed cruising. 

Return drive will be easy, since you will the Bangalore highway. 

 

You can cut short the trip to three days, go on a short trek in Ahobilam and drive back on the same day.

I feel Ahobilam deserves an overnight stay .. A short trek into the forest is the best at this place. But make sure of your accommodation being booked in advance if you are travelling to Ahobilam as there are limited options.

Drive safe and Keep revving!

I would suggest this plan

 

Day 1 - Hyderabad to Srisailam (on the way mallela theertham) 

Day 2 - Start to Mahanandi as there isn't much around Srisailam and cover Mahanandi with overnight stay at APTDC / Haritha Mahanandi

Day 3 - Start to Ahobhilam early morning, reach there finish off darshan's at both diguva and eguva Ahobilam and trek to old temple post lunch, return back to stay (try to book APTDC / Haritha Ahobilam)?

Day 4 - Ahobhilam -- Hyderabad via Bangalore Highway

 

You can also do this, this will be much easier

 

Day 1 - Hyderabad to Srisailam (on the way mallela theertham) 

Day 2 - Start to Mahanandi as there isn't much around Srisailam and cover Mahanandi (Check for temple timings) and proceed to Ahobilam with overnight stay at APTDC / Haritha Ahobilam

Day 3 - Finish off darshan's at both diguva and eguva Ahobilam and trek to old temple post lunch, return back to stay 

Day 4 - Ahobhilam -- Hyderabad via Bangalore Highway

It is good, you take regular Hyd Srisailam while going and take Dornala - Atmakur route while returning on your way towards Mahanandi, there is an alternate route which goes through Dornala - Giddalur but take Atmakur route to get on to Nandyal road which I feel is faster and better
