Hyderabad to Maredumilli plan   Frustrated with Hyderabad traffic and bad roads due to rains, I have decided to get out of the city and explore the farm lands of Godavari district and the forest range of Maredumilli.
Idea is to go on a quick getaway.
All the accommodations at Maredumilli are full.
This did not dampen my spirits.   Its not about the destination, It is the drive that matters to me. Did some quick research and booked accommodation at the nearest town which is Rajahmundry.
Hyderabad to Maredumilli route plan(best route):
Hyderabad to Maredumilli has two routes   Route 1 : Hyderabad --> Suryapet --> Vijayawada --> Tanuku --> Rajahmundry --> Maredumilli
Route 2 : Hyderabad --> Suryapet --> Khammam --> Kothagudem --> Bhadrachalam --> Chintur --> Maredumilli   Route 1: It is the best route to take. Completely 4-lane till Rajahmundry Route 2 : Avoid it unless you are planning to cover Bhadrachalam   Plan Day 1 : Hyderabad to Rajahmundry  Day 2 : Rajahmundry to Maredumilli Day 3 : Exploring villages around Rajahmundry Day 4 : Rajahmundry to Hyderabad   Places to visit in Maredumilli and Rampachodavaram (link) Excellent post @Surya78, your post helped us a lot.   Best places to visit in Maredumilli 1.
