Do visit Sagarasangamam, place where river and ocean meets.
 

 

I have heard this also happens at a place called Antharvedi, i.e. where the river joins the ocean. Are you referring to the same or both are similar but different places?

Beautiful pictures @varunc Weather looks perfect and you have visited during the right time I suppose. Will there be any spotting of animals like deers or birds like peacocks in this forest?

This weekend, I am travelling to my native "Kakinada" and returning back to Hyderabad on Saturday. Planning to drive through maredumilli and bhadrachalam and considering the following route. Please let me know if this is okay. This is just a drive through forest and there are no sightseeings planned.

Update by sairam:

 

Yes,

I did it 3 weeks ago.

Road condition is superb as usual  till Suryapet.
From Suryapet to khammam two lane road.
From khammam to Bhadrachalam is average and it is under construction.
Can maintain 80 kmph.

Drive through is not enough, there are lot of good places to explore.
Better to save it till monsoon.
Humidity will be very high in May, it is not worth it.

Did you visit Cooringa wild life sanctuary and Hope Island?

 

https://www.india-drive.com/index.php?/topic/148-hyderabad-to-konaseema/

@uday I visited Coringa forest few years back. It was a bit under developed and Boating was also not there at that time. Planning to visit again after going through ur write up :) Dont know much about Hope Island though. My dad once mentioned about this island during my child hood. He went there along with his colleagues. But never heard of this place again after that. If you have visited that place, please shed some light.

Hope island is definitely not a place this season. We will starting burning up under the hot sun and it being by the seaside, makes it more difficult and unpleasant. :(

As i noted previously, went to kkd over the weekend and while coming back took the route via maredumilli.. the route taken was 

Kakinada -> Peddapuram -> jaggampeta -> rampachodavaram -> maredumilli -> bhadrachalam -> Khammam -> suryapeta -> hyderabad

Started at 6 in the mrng.. reached by 6.15 in the evng. Total distance travelled approx 585km.

Took less breaks for breakfast, lunch, two viewpoints, diesel filling, tea break

There are two extraordinary viewpoints near maredumilli and there two extreme ghat sections near maredumilli. The view points are manayam viewpoint and sokuvagu viewpoint. Here are few pics taken with my mobile. Pardon the quality please.

wonderful! how is the overall road condition now Jagan? and any bad stretches which will effect overall average speed?

The entire route from Kakinada to Suryapet is mostly two lane with two way traffic which affects the average speed. Road condition is mostly fine but there are a couple of bad stretches as well. Especially in Paloncha, there is some road extension work going on which consumed more than half an hour of our time. Apart from that the journey was uneventful.

Yesterday it was cloudy to start with and inside the forest it doesnot matter anyway as it was very dense forest for most of the journey. Moreover we did not plan for any trip or sight seeing.. It was just an exploration drive.. I was coming back to Hyderabad from my home town along with my parents and wanted to explore this less taken route to see the place is worth to stay over a weekend. It turned out to be a very good place and thr is a lot to be explored. Will plan for a stay for sure during monsoons.

Thanks a lot for the update on the road status @Jagan24. YEs, you should do this during monsoon.. Plan your drive to Lambasingi during November/December. Trust me it's a paradise. You will enjoy every bit of your drive :)

This place is definitely on cards during monsoon.

May be we should add this place to India-Drive meetup(list) during monsoon.


If we can find a decent resort. I think four/five days are good enough to explore this place.


These roads will be fantastic during monsoon.

The road is being laid in the palvoncha town from last 1year. It is slowing us down by 30 mins to 1 hr. I faced the same in May last year and again in this May on the way from Nuzvid to Warangal via Kothagudem and Manuguru, Tadvai. By the way visited Bhadrachalam temple as there is a 1 hr extra time as the roads are very good except in Palvoncha!
