Hyderabad --> Kompally --> Kamareddy --> Nirmal --> Kuntala Waterfalls
A plan of doing a short road trip has been drawn a week before the monsoon started, did quite a bit of research and finalized on the Kuntala waterfalls which is said to be the highest waterfalls (147 Feet) in Telangana state.
Kuntala falls is definitely a recommended place for all the nature lovers. It is sited at a place named Kuntala in Adilabad district, Telangana which is around 300 kilometers from Hyderabad on a river called Kadem.
The best time to visit this place is during the rainy season and winter. Summer drives to this place can be avoided as the water flow down the tires is not much seen and also no good accommodation is available around this Kuntala waterfalls region.
So we started off early at 6 a.m. as we had planned to do the whole trip in a single day.
Hyderabad to Kuntala waterfalls road condition is excellent, with a 4-lane road and less traffic. We covered the distance in 5 hours flat which included a brunch break in between.
As we got close to the place, we diverted from the main road and took a right turn from the highway as we crossed a village named Neredgonda. Kuntala waterfalls is located at a distance of ~10 kilometers from the Highway.
We drove through the villages into the dense forest until we reached a dead end. There is a car parking facility available which costed us around 25/- rupees. We parked the car at a designated space and we almost got there.
As we walked ahead, we had to descend down around 400 steps and so we bought some food and water as there would be no food joints available down there.
It took us 20 minutes to descend down and we could finally sight the scenic beauty of the waterfalls. We went down further to reach the waterfalls.
