2. We travel to enjoy driving and roads and not to see destinations. so, normally we just decide and drive off randomly.
3. What ever the image size i am uploading it is enlarged in the post.
4. Please add us into your whats app group. we are very much interested in road trips in cars.

I am travelling from Hyderabad to Vizag in December.
So I just had a few queries.
We will be leaving Hyderabad at around 2 pm and we are planning to stop in Vijayawada.
I just wanted to know the road conditions and where to stay in Vijayawada(should be on or near the highway).
What is the distance and how much time will it take?
Last December me & my cousins went on a short trip to Thatipudi Reservoir, we heard good things about the place, so on a very good afternoon we started off. Lies on the borders of Vishakhapatnam & Viziangaram districts is Thatipudi Reservoir near Thatipudi village, Gantyada Mandal, Vizianagaram District. The reservoir was constructed across Gosthani River during 1963-68 to provide drinking water to Visakhaptnam City.
The wide expanse of the river surrounded by hills makes for one amazing view at any time & it is a photographers delight. Thatipudi can be reached by two ways, one being through Vishakapatnam Dist & another being through Vizianagaram Dist.
As you Reach
Thatipudi(Vizag Route), You see the reservoir gate & spillway on your left after that you see an old building & a restaurant in the same compound.
Go a little further & you see the road to the reservoir with sign boards.
Things To Do -
At the place you have boating which takes you from
It Costs 50/- per person, it’s a 1 hour trip (40 min Up & Down, 20 min to stay on the other side)
Places to Eat
There is a restaurant of the tourism department on the other side of the boat trip & River bay Restaurant beside the old building near the reservoir spillway.
River Bay Restaurant Review -
Restaurant Maintenance - 3.5/5
Taste - 3/5
Price - $$
Car parking space is available, No Wi-Fi
Very Good Locations for photographs.
