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
Day 1 : Hyderabad to Rajahmundry
Day 2 : Rajahmundry to Maredumilli
Day 3 : Exploring villages around Rajahmundry
Day 4 : Rajahmundry to Hyderabad
