Where : Anathagiri Hills, Vikarabad.

Plan

Drive was planned in the whatsApp group a day before.

Me, Dr.Sudhir, Ashwin and Sridhar agreed to join him.

Had a great time meeting the new and old members.
Anathagiri hills is beautiful now, starting early morning is the best way to explore the hills.

 

WhatsApp chat:

Friday: 
Saran : Change in my plan to go to Vikarabad tomorrow early morning 5 o clock to enjoy the early morning breeze.

If anyone is up for it, reply me.

Kumsi : How do u guys wake up at 5 on a weekend? Go for a nice night drive. Weather also seems great. Isn't it?

Me : Keep me into you tentative list.
If you are planning to drive back by 9/10 AM, I will try to join.
Breakfast at Haritha, would be ideal.
@⁨Saran when are you planning to return?


Dr. Sudhir : My question too... Return plan? I would like to join at 5:00 am...  Saturdays r working days for me... For that matter Sundays too... 😞

 

Saran : Before Hyderabad traffic wakes up
Yep.. Before 9 return


Sridhar : I will also join the drive tomorrow morning if we return by 10
Will I get the 'roadtrippin' tattoo for my car tomorrow if you are coming😍😍

 

Me : Yes


Sridhar :  Is the plan on at 5am?

Saran: Will confirm in an hour.

Confirmed

 

Ashwin : I'm in.
Sridhar : 5am, Gachibowli ORR entrance is it

Saran: Yep


Sridhar : Will be at ORR entrance at 5 am

 

Saturday :

Me : Good morning 
Will be there at ORR entrance by 5am.

 

Dr. Sudhir :  Doesn't look like anyone slept 😂😂👍🏻
 

Saran:  Am starting to ORR, Will be there in 15 mins

That's how it all started, Thank you saran for taking the initiative.

We went further inside the village and found a route to the lake. (old route was too bad with a lot of wet land so inviting to catch hold of the tires :D)

Fantastic pictures.

Apt title..Vikarabad definitely has monsoon magic. 

In summer it is very average.

 

Monsoon, converts this place from barren land to green carpet.
