Myself, Ravi, Ashwin and Omkar have decided to go an quick drive. 
We did some research on the locations that are near to Gachibowli and started around 4PM.
We took a short quick break at the movie towers and drove down till Shankarpally.

Road condition is average as a 4-lane drive way is under construction.

We reached Shankarpally by 5 PM by taking longer routes and explored the interiors of these villages.

The approach road was very bad and we were disappointed. Once we reached the destination, We found the place with full of slush. Also, the road was very slippery.

We started searching for other approach roads and finally managed to find one.

We stopped and checked the route by foot and proceeded further. Chances of getting stuck are very high at this place. Take at least two cars.

Omkar decided to scrape the mud due to less traction. As soon as we drove 100 meters ahead, the mud was back on to the tires.

Question from Ravi
Why can't they put a single wire instead of bunch of wires?
Answer from Omkar
Difference between a 2-lane and 6-lane road. Petrol-head?

This place looks entirely like a new location to me. I have been there during April this year and found just dried grass. Thanks to the monsoon rains. Great share @Ranger

I guess, this place is around Pragathi resorts.
Nice find guys.
Will visit this place early in the morning.

Any precautions to take?
Is it very slippery?

@driveking Make sure you don't drive there alone. Always good to have a towing rope with you. Also, Make sure your check the track on foot before driving through a path which you are skeptic about.
