Please plan for it! Hyderabad to Araku via Bhadrachalem, Maredumilli!

It will be a fantastic drive during monsoon!

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

 

That will be a fantastic plan. 

Temperatures are still high around Rajahmundry.

Last weekend, i thought of exploring the place but decided to drop out due to high temperatures. 

 

That route map is definitely in my to do list.

As far as i know these places are still untouched..very less commercial tourism.

No issues in 2nd route , but instead of Suryapet - Khammam , Take Kodad - Khammam Route and Definitely you can go on your bike , you’ll love the curves of road from Chintur to Maredumalli

I have heard this from a lot of people. I have also heard that this route might get adventurous at times when it rains :P 

I guess, December would be the best time to visit this place :)

Could you please let me know the interior road conditions, resort prices and the conditions/terrain of the roads leading to the reservoir, waterfalls and view point. Can we take our vehicle to those points?

 

Pictures are excellent.

Yes, roads are good.
Won't be a problem for Honda City. 

If possible, do the following route

 

Maredumilli --> Sileru --> Lambasingi --> Paderu --> Aruku
Roads are average but it is very scenic.

Sharing information about a Village in Maredumilli called Gudisa village. (by  Prasad)

 

It is located around 40 kilometers from Maredumilli,

Can be easily done in Bikes and 4x4 .

Difficult for Sedans.

 

According to latest updates roads from Maredumilli to Gudisa are under construction,

Once it is completed, it can be done in all cars.

      Guys can someone please suggest the route and pit-stops to ooty from Hyderabad and best place to stay in ooty
      I'm planning to go on 16th December 2018

      We got our new car in Aug 2018, decided to go for a long drive during dasara holidays.
      So we planned for a 3 day trip to Anantapur, lepakshi and madhavaraya temple gorantla.
       
      Day:1 
      Distance : 366 KM
      Travel time : 6 hours approx
      Started on Sunday afternoon around 1:30 PM,
      we took the NH44 towards jadcherla, karnool. Reached around 7:30 to Anantapur with tea break and dinner break nearby Anantapur (Hotel Mayura) .
       
      We stayed at Hotel Serena as we saw some good reviews about the place, and its close proximity to NH.
      Hotel was good as we expected. 
       
      Day: 2
      Distance: 255 KM
      We began our journey to Lepakshi temple around 8 am after had a delicious breakfast filled with yummy idlis and hot wadas at Ramaiah Idly Centre,
      which seems to be famous food joint known especially for Idlis in Anantapur. Reached Veerabhadra Temple, Lepakshi around 10 PM.
       
      Temple is maintained so clean and neatly, found parking place near by the entrance.
      Around 2 hours we spent in the temple admiring the marvellous sculptures of Vijayanagara architecture.
      Being the holidays season temple had good amount of visitors, though we had a pleasant darshan.
       
      Temple has a small garden and washroom facilities. This is a must visit temple if you like visiting historical places filled with beautiful sculptures and grand architecture. Few pictures take using my mobile. hope you like them.

      Dear All,
       
      Apologies for the late reply. I finally completed the trip and it was a great experience. 
      I visited the below locations in span of 6 days and drove 2400 kms.
      Nallamala Jungle camp Horsley hills Chennakesava temple Sompalam Kadiri Narsimha swamy temple Talakona waterfalls Tirupathi Srikalahasti   
      Day-1
      Hyderabad to Nallamala Jungle Camp
      My planned route is Banglore highway i.e
      Hyderabad ---> Jadcharla--->Kurnool-->Nandyal--->Nallamala Jungle Camp Pacherla
       
      Excellent road conditions. I started my journey at 6:30 am from Hydearabad and reachd Nallama Jungle camp by 10:45 am , with a break in Kurnool for breakfast.  
      For 4000 Rs  ( you will get cottage, breakfast,Lunch & Dinner at Nallamala Pacherla) , beware of Monkeys. Safari tour was adventurous but hardly we spot any wild life.
       
      Day -2&3
      Nallamall Jungle camp to Horsley Hills
      Planned route Nallamala Jungle Camp --->Rayachoti---> Horsley Hills (1-day break)
       
      Roads are very good until Rayachoti. From there to Horsley hills it was pathetic , they are laying new roads and the present condition was worst. Please avoid this road by all means.
       
      Horsley hills is a pretty good place to chill down and relax. The weather is pleasant always.
      Here we had spend two days exploring Horsley hills and neary by places. 
      Chennakesava Temple at Sompalayam is a ancient forgotten temple with unbelievable architecture one should go and watch. 
      We also visite Kadiri Narsimha swamy temple on the way.
       
      Day 4
      Halt at Tirupati (enroute Talakona Waterfalls)
      Planned route Horsley Hills--> Talakona waterfalls --> Tirupati
       
      Roads are pretty good with speed bumps at some places .
       
      Day 5
      Tirupati darshan
       
      Return Journey
       
      Day 6
      Tirupati NAM expressway  Tirupati--->Srikalahasti-->Nellore-->Kavali-->Ongole-->Nalgonda-->Hyderabad.
       
      While coming we took Nellore Kavali NAM express towards  Hyderabad. The road condition is Ok with so many toll gates  and some huge repairs in between. Somehow I feel and suggest to take Kurnool route to Tirupathi which is really good.
       
      Attaching few photos from my tour , please have a look.

      I regularly commute on Hyderabad to Vijawayada highway, almost once in a month from the past 10 years.

      Hyderabad to Vijayawada distance :275 kilometers

      Year :2006 
       
      It is a single lane road, not enough to fit 3 vehicles at a time. It used take me 7 hours to travel from Hyderabad to Vijayawada. Blind curves. Highest accident ever occurred in the country. One of the busiest, mostly filled with trucks. Worst road condition, filled with unlimited potholes. Driving at night is a suicide.(zero visibility with those high beams) Some overtakes used to take me at least 15 minutes, Imagine 10 trucks trailing each other with no space between them, on a single lane! No proper hotels and washroom Worst fuel quality But I used to enjoy the drive, it is challenging and fun.  
       
      Year :2017(after a decade)
       
      Now it has a 4-lane road, truck lay by lanes, emergency lanes and bridges across villages. It is taking me 4 hours from Hyderabad to Vijayawada. I am saving 3 hours.  Many good hotels available, no issues with washrooms. Toll road, with road assistance and standby ambulance for safety. Continues patrol across the highway, last year a huge industrial truck was stuck on highway while taking u-turn. Patrol guys arrived within 15 minutes and took the situation under control.  

      Hotels between Hyderabad to Vijayawada

      1. Village Aharam :  Malkapur 
           First decent hotel on the highway
       
      2. Highway 9 Restaurant : Nalgonda
           Good for break fast
       
      3. Hotel Vivera : Nalgonda
          Recomended, If you are planning to diver towards Nalgonda.
       
      4. Maa palle ruchulu : before suryapet
          Village style hotel, don't expect luxury.
       
      5. Hotel 7 : suryapet
          Best in quality, very good washrooms. Recommended for families.
       
      6. Numerous hotel in Suryapet.
          You get all types verities over here.
       
      7. G-hotel : Suryapet
       
      8.Once you cross Suryapet, you won't find any proper hotels, though you can find many road side dhabas.
         Please correct If i miss anything.
       
      Fuel stations 
      You can find then in every 20 kilometers radius.

      Tolls
      It is a complete toll road, elevated 4-lane, on an average you pay around 1 rupee per kilometre, so it should be under 250/-
