Hyderabad to Adilabad and Pochera water Falls

Recommended Posts

Hyderabad to Pochera water falls is around 267 kilometers.
Members who are planning to cover Kuntala water falls, should not miss this place.

Road condition is very good.

 

Hyderabad to Pochera route:(Try both the roads)


Route 1
Hyderabad --> Medchal --> Kamareddy --> Dichpally --> Akkapur ( Nirmal bypass) --> Pochera waterfalls

Route 2
Hyderabad --> Medchal --> Kamareddy --> Dichpally --> Nirmal (town) -->  Pochera waterfalls


This is a photolog about the Greenery spread around Nirmal -Adilabad Highway and Pochera water falls.
I have visited this place, almost a year ago in August 2016 .

 

Nirmal to Adilabad route is fantastic, there are two routes you can take, both roads have breath taking views during the monsoon.

  • Via Manbub Ghat (from nirmal town)
  • Via Bypass road, which doesn't touch nirmal town. 

 

Thanks

Beautiful pictures @travel.rtc According to me, the highway towards Adilabad is one of the best highways connecting Hyderabad. Probably during this time of the year, it looks more or less the same. Pochera waterfalls is another beautiful falls in a pleasant and peaceful surrounding though it is a small one.

Yes absolutely spot on.
 

This is one of the finest highway and also i have seen well behaved traffic in this route. I almost travel to Nizmabad on regular basis.

Where as Bangalore highway and Vijayawada highway is a mess, I have seen people driving like mad and every body in a rush.
Here it is not the case, my personal observation. People are chilled out and calm.

 

Yes,
Pochera is simple and gorgeous in full flow.
Last year we were fortunate enough to be there while it was in full flow.
But due to heavy rain we could not get the camera and capture.

 

Thanks Again Sudhir

Agree with you 100%

During long weekends, it is horrible. Very bad road manners.

I have few questions regrading Pochera waterfalls.

  • What is the best month to visit?
  • Do we need to walk to reach the waterfalls or Is it near by to the road?

What is the best month to visit?

 

From July to February is the best time to visit, It is absolutely beautiful after first installment of Rainy Season as Greenery spread is very eye pleasing.
 

Monsoon is the best season and this falls near by kuntala waterfall.
if any one plans kuntala then Pochera is en-route to Kuntala

After Neredigonda you need to take right turn to Kuntala. where as Pochera u need to come further in Highway and take Left towards Boath from Boath X Roads.
 

 

Do we need to walk to reach the waterfalls or Is it near by to the road?

 

 Absolutely No Walking.

Just take Boath Road from BoathX Roads - Just 5kms from X Roads You will find Pochera Water Falls
All you need to do is park your vehicle and take few steps down.
Parking charges for car 30 rs when we have parked our car in last year.

Very poor facilities, you wont find anything to eat better carry some food.

 

Hope I have answered your queries, If not please feel free to ask any further queries.

Your information is very helpful, Thank you for the quick response.
Yeah,  facilities are poor even at Kuntala waterfalls, Im not expecting much from Pochera waterfalls.

 

I'm planning to cover Pochera and Kuntala next month, when the rains are high. 

Your inputs will help us a lot.

Nice pictures sir,
Perfect timing.
With monsoon kicking in, many of our members will be driving to Kuntala waterfalls.

I never heard of Pochara waterfalls.
I will add a stopover at Pochara this time.

Pochera waterfalls look small compared to kutala, my observation from pictures.

Any other waterfalls around this area apart from
1. Kuntala waterfalls
2. Pochera waterfalls

My all time favorite road. But not on weekends though. No proper road management by the people. But Very scenic road.

Nice pics:D

This one is bigger than the Nagarjuna Sagar dam. It has almost 50 gates . Is it having stored water? Can we go there?

Nirmal is the nearest town from these places and as far as the accomodation.

No Govt Guest houses or Pvt either around these falls.

These are around 37 kms from Nirmal.
Hence Nirmal would be better option to stay and Now, It is a District and has some good  hotels too.

Yeah, nirmal is best option available. 
But If you want a stay away from town I would suggest Telangana tourism in Kaddam.

Pricing is very tempting. 

A/C Rooms : 1,100 INR

Non A/C Rooms : 750 INR

Online booking : Link

Happened to Drive to Adilabad from Nizamabad on Dec 24th Early Morning started at 6 from Nizamabad and reached Nirmal Bypass by 7:30 and from there took the Highway itself to Adilabad and experienced the fog in this beautiful stretch.....it was so cold and fog spread all around ....Pics posted in above post. 

Thanks.

Nice pics @travel.rtc

I had visited to Kuntala waterfalls this Saturday, but missed out on visiting Pochera falls.

Yes, the roads where awesome and fun to drive. Especially after Nirmal, the sceneries where very beautiful on both the sides of the road.

 

Couldn't take much pics of the route, as was very much admired by the road & was enjoying my ride.

 

Really enjoyed in the Kuntala waterfalls.

 

Can we enjoy in the Pochera waterfalls as well?

Hi b@r@n ..Thank You ,

Pochera is a small waterfall compared to Kuntala But with less steps and also you cannot spend much time there as there are no such any facilities ...

You can refer to my pics posted in this post earlier to get an Idea.

Lovely pictures of the highway @travel.rtc . You seem to be taking this route pretty often. Thanks a lot for sharing the road conditions and they look flawless as always. I have done this route on 22nd December too during my drive to Delhi and have absolutely loved this bit of my drive.

Hi @b@r@n, Good to know that you have recently done a road trip to Kuntala Falls. Could you share a few pictures and highlights of your road trip and the water flow at the falls..?

      Intro Rant:

      Summers are always tricky. Most people don't prefer to venture out on a trip in summer, for obvious reasons. So, when I bounced an idea off a trip to Warangal this summer, everyone went nuts. They even ridiculed that I'm not in my senses. But I did not want to drop the idea just because someone feels it to be stupid. I needed a break from my monotonous work life, so I was adamant. I know my wife also wouldn't agree; even if she does, she doesn't come considering the weather, but I have to do the customary - inform. My son's response, quick as a wink, was "Let's do it". Wonderful kid. It took some collective effort by me and my son to get the go-ahead from the home minister. Phew!
       
      Plan and Preparation:

      Being a Kakatiya University graduate myself, I regret not exploring enough of Warangal (capital of Kakatiya Dynasty) for long, which is known for its rich history and heritage. Though it is well within 150 km distance from my hometown and also from Hyderabad, I did not specifically travel to see some of its historical places. So, it's that time again - One-day trip!
       
      There was this understanding with my wife and me that any impromptu trip needs to be done and dusted same day. If it's feasible and possible then she and our daughter would also join. Otherwise, my only soul companion is my son on any given day. He can only match and endure my crazy schedule. But being peak summer, my wife was skeptical and worried about excessively hot weather. Only after explaining and reassuring about all necessary precautions taken, we were given the nod. I feel there is nothing like "perfect" time to travel. There is only convenient time. The more the amount of convenience the better. That's it. Peak season travel can bring expensive price tags, overcrowded tours, accommodation, parking and food problems etc. So sometimes off-season travelling could bring in some benefits. One such benefit is leisurely exploring the place in its entirety without hassle. In the end, it proved to be a wise decision as we could spend some quality time exploring the places (especially Laknavaram which is crowded during peak season).
       
      Once the date (April 15th) was decided, it was only up to us on how many places we can cover in a day. We finalized 6 places. I've gone through Google maps for route and order of visit.
       
      The Route:

      Hyderabad -> Bhuvanagiri -> Yadadri -> Kazipet -> Warangal. 
       
      This is the only route everyone takes from Hyderabad, but little did we know what was in store for us. The four-lane road is under construction from Yadadri (Yadagirigutta) to Warangal, and it is a 99-km section of National Highway–163 in Telangana. Lots of patches, diversions and traffic was allowed only on one side. It was a nightmare to drive with heavy oncoming truck traffic especially at night. It took nearly 4 hours to cover 145 odd KMs for return journey, excluding dinner time.
       
      The Journey:

      Below was the order of places we wanted to visit:
       
      Bhadrakali Temple Warangal Fort Thousand-Pillar Temple Ramappa Temple Laknavaram Lake Pakhal Lake  
      Trip Details:
       
      Total distance covered:  539 KM
      Total duration of the trip:  17 hours
       
      Road Conditions:
       
      NH163 - Yadadri to Warangal:  Quite a few diversions, patchy roads, potholes, and heavy truck traffic (at night). Other connecting roads are good to okay. If travelling to Pakhal lake from Laknavaram then do not blindly follow Google maps. It'll take you through some thandas.  We drove almost 6 KM through a thanda and got lost.  Just take left at Mallampalli and follow NH365 until Narsampet (Ambedkar statue), and then take left and follow Pakhal road till the lake.  
      Food Options:
       
      Limited food options everywhere we visited except Warangal. At Laknavaram, food options available like lunch, but depends on the crowd. Better to carry home-made food to other places.  
       
      Parking Facility:
       
      Limited or no proper parking facilities at all places I visited. It'll be chaos at Laknavaram in peak season unless there is an alternative.

      Dear ALL,
      I am planning to travel to tirupati from Hyderabad by in a automatic car.
      Don't want to take bad roads. Can anyone please suggest the best route?
    • By travel.rtc
      This trip happened  during Novemeber 1st week 2018 and November first being our 9th Marriage Anniversary - we wanted to celebrate it in Mysore hence drived down to Mysore and to Ooty .
       
      Started 10:00P:M from Hyderabad and highway was little busy with all RTC and Private Buses towards Bangalore and different parts of Rayalaseema.....we stopped at Kurnool Toll Tax and then started again but started being on a working day after tiring office work has shown the tiredness and me being only driver for the entire trip took good breaks ...we stopped between Kurnool and Anantapur near some petrol bunk and after Anantapur in the early morning to take some power naps ....Reached Bangalore Outskirts by 7:30 ..
       
      The Morning Mystic view of Nandi Hills and surroundings was awesome and Bangalore Highway is very very super road except few speed breakers else so much fun to drive straight road.
      -- We Stopped at Hotel Nandi Upachar : https://goo.gl/maps/LwP1NeFtZoG2 
      Hotel was very very Decent and Has Nice Rest Rooms and ample parking place  - had quick refresh and Nice break Fast and there was Some Minister Visiting the Hotel and traffic was halted ...we had to further wait for 30 more minutes and started at 9:30 A:M and it took us some time to cross Bangalore and Hit Mysore Highway - as usual Bangalore traffic took a toll on us and Mysore highway was little busy.
       
      We Stopped at Kamath  for quick Lunch and then Started for Mysore .
      I have a friend who works in Travel agency in Bangalore , he generally takes care of hotel bookings or cab bookings if needed whenever we are around  he has booked a room for us in Mysore  at Hotel Vyshak Residency - Hotel was good and has Hot water Supply all the day  - This )hot water)  is one of the must for the Hotels around that place in Winters 
       
      -- Next Day Early Morning we went for Chamundi Temple  - Chamundeshwari Devi -One of the ShaktiPeeta ,We had good Darshan and had some prasadam at their kitchen.
       
      While returning, at the Parking Lot My mother overheard some one saying Ooty from Here is 160 kms - She immediatley said to me its 160 kms which means like Hyderabad - Nizamabad [Nizamabad being my Native]
      She asked me ,Shall we go to Ooty too.
      Who can deny an drive down to Ooty and I said immediately OK and haven't said anything about Road -,she was not aware of Ghat road and being traveled  on Butter smooth Roads from Hyderabad till Mysore she expected it to be same straight roads....but later she was scared to the max after Gudalur when it was pitch dark and raining and Ghat Road Started
       
      We had a quick visit to Shri Ganapathi Sachidanda Ashram and started for Ooty at 2:30 P:M  - if any one has this in bucket list when they visit Mysore and wants decent stay they can ask for room in Ashram campus and it is pretty less compared to outside while returning  to Hyderabad we have to stay in Mysore as it was night when we returned to Mysore from Ooty and we asked an room for accommodation as  it falls left while entering Mysore and they gave us a Big room was charged 500 Rs - all facilities were provided indeed 
       
      Took little while to cross Mysore , later we had took some time to find an ATM to get cash and has to look for ATMs in NanjanGud , the Route taken was Via :
      NanjanGud  - > Gundlupete ->Bandipur -> Gudalur -> Ooty
       
      ---- Took Right turn after GundluPete  and went 11+ kms to visit Gopalaswamy Betta ....But now cars are not allowed to be driven till the temple and one must Take Karnataka Tourism Buses ...and those will be plied till 4:000 P:M By the time we went there its was 4:00 and we dont has an Option and it started getting dark  and we started back , returned to Gundlupete and reached Bandipur
      Same friend of mine booked a Room for us in  3 Star Hotel - Hotel Preethi Classic http://www.hotelpreethiclassic.com   which was closer to city center and had quick tour of Tea Factory , Botanical gardens did shopping at Tibet Market - Finding Good food in Ooty is little tough and we had our breakFast at A2B and its pretty decent and good .
       
      Return Journey was Simple - Stopping here and there for few clicks and my car being Wagon R and people cautioned about clutch issues generally occur in that route and asked me to take some breaks and give some time for car and then start ...slowly reached Gudalur and it took sweet 4 hrs including photo breaks and tea breaks , Reached Mysore by 8:00 P:M  ,me being no mood to drive  wanted a break and i thought of starting next day early morning , and went to Ganapathi Sachithananda Aashram  -
       
      They allotted a room  , we went to near by restaurant and had dinner - Next Day Morning after a good nap and fresh-up started at 5:30 A:M to Bangaore- Hyderabad , Had Break fast at A2B Food Court after Mysore on Bangalore Highway [Excellent and Neat rest Rooms] 
      Crossed Bangalore in midst of heavy traffic and being Monday it was very very tedious to cross Bangalore - Had stop after Bangalore at Shell Bunk and topped up the fuel ,they have checked the car and i took their engine oil and they did the oil change in quick time and started for Hyderabad . Bangalore Highway is one of the best roads i have driven and being day time we can find less traffic on Roads and one can certainly get bored too ...went into Anantapur town in search of a good mess for Lunch but traffic made to change our plans and we stopped at Dhaba some where in between Anantapur and Kurnool  highway .
       
      After having Some Rotis started for Hyderabad which was Straight Road with speed breakers here and there
