Hyderabad ORR vantage point, Sri Anjaneya Swamy Temple

Recommended Posts

Distance : 60 kilometers (from Gachibowli)

 

Location : Sri Anjaneya Swamy Temple
 

GPS : https://goo.gl/maps/vjQrN58LkBP2

 

 

On Sunday afternoon @Omik initiated a quick drive(photograpy) along with me @varunc @Saran @Ravi and @Kashyap

 

As usual Ravi was busy and dropped out in the last minute.
 

So this time we decided to go in a single car. Easy to park and stop.
So we squezed into Varun's EcoSport.


We started at 3 PM and reached the destination by 4:30 PM, including few breaks en-route.

 

Route details :
 

You should take Bongloor exit and drive along the service road.
It is a 2 kilometer up hill drive, once we divert from the service road.
You can see the arch at the entrance.

After spending an hour, we drove down and started exploring the places around the service road.

We decided to leave the road and take the trails.

A small detour took us on this beautiful path.

Too good..!!! Just missed this one


Thank you, I guess you were enjoying the ORR on that day.
You must have missed us by an hour, you need to blame Omkar for the sudden plan.

Ranger and Saran, pictures are awesome.
I drive on that section regularly. 
But never heard of the temple. Is it near Sangi Temple?

It is just after crossing from Sangi Temple turn, when you are driving towards Vijayawada exit.

      Guys,
       
      We are planning a road trip(swift car) from Hyderabad to Goa in September 1st week. This is our first time so any suggestions on present routes and road conditions and things in Goa are highly appreciated.
      Any recent updates from fellow travellers after the heavy rains in Karnataka ?
       
      Not in a mood to postpone the plan 😁
      Thanks for your time!👏

      I did not travelled for three months and the traveller in side me is thirsty.
      Few plans to West Maharastra and Goa with friends did not materialised.
       
      I had also planned a trip to Chitrakote falls with family friends but they were afraid of travelling in Chattisgarh.
      It was late night of 27th July, 2018 Friday and I was desperate to go to some place.
      I asked my wife and son Shall we go to Chitrakote Waterfalls? They said yes.
       
      Rough route plan was with me. No bookings for night stay made. 
       
      Got up early on 28-07-2018 Saturday and started from Home by 5.30 AM and reached Warangal by 7.30 AM.
       
      I know the route up to Eturunagaram before Bhogatha and I know very well that once we cross Warangal,
      it is difficult to get any food. So we had Breakfast at Hotel Ashoka, Hanmakonda, once my favorite. Entered in to Mulugu road (from here entire roads are 2 lane) by 8.30 AM. 
       
      Our original thought was to come back in the same route from Chitrakote but it proved wrong.
      Initially we thought of seeing Bhogatha falls in return journey so as to reach Chitrakote early.
      By 10.30 we were at Bhogatha Falls cross road and its only 1 Km from there. We thought lets have a look without wasting much time.
       
      It proved to be good decision.
