Lets do it in August? 

First/Second week are good to go.

 

Please fix a date.
I know it is too early to plan.
But without fixing a date we will forget about it.

 

My question to all the members? If we can cover all the waterfalls in two/three days.

Where to start?
Where to stay?

On which date?

How many members willing to join?

Like you have mentioned, we will have to fix the dates first to see how many members would be available! August has a long weekend (Aug 15 combined with Planned Leaves I mean), most of them would have had planned it already if I am not wrong since it is hardly only a month away from now!

They look so beautiful in pics ... I really hope that they look the same in reality .. we being part of a humble nation tend to spoil anything that is beautiful with litter and trash ...lets see how they are once we go there ...

As sagar suggested, we will plan the drive as soon as we are back.

August 15th looks ideal for the drive.

But lets see, since many members would have planned some trip on the long weekend.

I have visited few of they, very beautiful places to explore. 

Only issue is lack of facilities.

I feel August or 1st week of September should be a good time to explore the falls :)

We (With My Friends) had a recent visit to Kuntala Waterfalls on 06/16/2018. Water was in good flow and now it is expected more heavily water falls. Here is the latest pics...sorry if pictures doesn't look good, it was taken from cell phone.

Thanks for sharing the current status of the flow @Anand Singh.. :) I guess, the day was sunny during your drive. The place around the falls always looks dry to me. May be because of the rocky terrain around.

Usually during this time of the year, the flow is even more high but I feel this year lacked rains so far and that should be the reason for this :(

This year rains are pretty low around Telangana.

From your pictures, i can see that flow is on the lower side.

 

During monsoon, flow is very high.

I heard there is a fence around waterfalls,

We can't reach the foot hills of waterfalls, Is it true?

Exactly! Water flow is low, usually by this time water levels / flow will generally be high covering the rocky surface

I think, we should do Bogatha falls soon... I have seen my friend's recent trip to Bogatha and the water flow is quite good at the moment :D

Bogatha water flow is good in Summers too when compared to the other falls around! But we do not have any options of food close by! will have to carry everything before we go.

True, We should not do that as per security restrictions but  their are no security/police, so people do what ever they want and i saw many people climbing on top of the falls.So would advise the travellers not to climb on to the hills to get access to the water falls.ONE SLIP AND YOU CAN LOOSE BALANCE AND GO STRAIGHT DOWN TO THE BOTTOM OF THE FALLS WHICH ARE AT A HEIGHT OF Approx more than 100 ft.

      Hi all,

      This is the Pune-Bangalore road condition as on 14th Oct 2019.
       
      This is a detailed explanation and a long post so kindly read it at your leisure.
       
      A stretch of almost 870 kms from Pune.  Until Hubli you dont have to fall down under. It is a beautiful highway to drive on. Your patience is taken for a toss from Hubli. Your real journey starts now :p After Hubli, almost close to 150-200 kms, you have to deal with some rough patches of the road because a lot of construction activity is in progress. May be two years down the line it will be the best highway. After the trouble with all the rubble, here comes the best stretch of the highway which is the last two hundred kilometres where you feel you are in heaven. You can easily touch speeds upto 130-140 kmph with ease and it is a 6-Lane highway. In most parts of the highway until Kolhapur or may be little further you will find some shoddy white strips (refer video) which spread across hundred metres before you cross every village. These are nasty, so you may want to speed up a bit; instead of travelling at 40 or 60 kmph, travel at speeds of nearly 80-100 kmph so that you don't feel these jerks. However, be careful of two wheeler and pedestrians crossing the roads in these villages.  After Hubli, you may not find too many food options so carry lot of snacks with you. Especially, when you are travelling with kids ensure that you take decent quantity of food. However, here and there you might find small outlets which are just average. But if you are looking for some good options you will have to wait until the last 100 to 130 kilometres stretch towards Bangalore. Last but not the least, as far as possible, avoid driving in the night in this stretch from Hubli because in certain places you will not find diversion symbols near construction areas, you wont see shoulder line markings, lane markings in most of the places thus making it a difficult drive during nights. Both the driver and navigator have to be really careful to ensure that everyone is safe

      Current status:

      Hyderabad to Tuni : Good
      Tuni to Chilka : under construction
      Chilka to Kolkata : Good
       
      Information shared by @ARAY
       
      ***NH 16 - Route update***
      Folks planning for a road trip via NH16 to WB next weekend for Durga Puja, please be aware of the latest road conditions. Post Tuni till South Chilka is getting a major road expansion for last 8+ months as we all know.
       
      Diversions and all are manageable, however with the recent torrential downpour in the region the soft soil has washed off exposing the cemented Culverts and small bridges that are constructed at the first phase of any NH build or expansion.
       
      Due to the absence of proper markings and boards this is more risky. Absence of soft soil or temporary soil in general will further make the cemented bridges even more harder to climb and slush and soft mud can make the situation tricky.
       
      People driving low slung sedans and hatchbacks please be careful, there is a high probability of underbelly hits while making the ascend to and decent from the bridges. People with FWD SUV be careful of lateral torque steer in the slush making the car go sideways and out of control.
       
      A close friend of mine while driving to Assam has severely damaged the front left lower arm, track rod for steering and partially the ball joints of Honda city. He took that ascent at roughly 32kmph as per his GPX data.
      Use caution drive slow post Tuni and have a very safe trip everyone !

      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.
