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. 

 

Very true @Anand Singh That is a super risky affair and one can easily loose their life with a small error. During my visit, I have seen the security around handling the crowd from getting into the water. He had also mentioned about a latest accident of 2 guys losing their lives at this spot.

sudden plan just to drive on the highway peacefully

 

Hyderabad to Kuntala highway is bliss to drive.

I used to visit Kuntala only to drive on that road.

I did not care much about waterfalls.

Naveen ,how far is it from kuntala falls.

 

Both  are around Adilabad only.
For Mitte we need to take right turn before Adilabad. 

 

I think Naveen can give us more details, since he is very familiar with that area.

Its Good place Fully agency land i mean 100% tribal habitat.

But no facilities for food near by we need to carry everything that is needed.

 

We drive from Hyderabad to Gudihatnur then we take right.

Go ahead towards Jainur then Sirpur.

 

We need to park our cars at Sirpur.

From parking we should walk rest of the distance and cross a water stream before we reach the falls.

We need to take the help of villagers( Bullock Cart) they can help us in crossing the stream.

 

No security guards at falls. Self security is advised.

Kuntala is few kms before we reach adilabad. Even this is a good spot to spend our weekends. Road drive upto the location available.(i will update road condition because of Bhagirata pipe lining) . Bakery and meals hotels are available there. Top view and bottom view both are beautiful. We need to walkdown 400-500 steps to reach the bottom side of the falls. Rudramadevi movie was shot here.

Hi @NaveenTraveller, I have been to Kuntala 4 times during weekend drives..There was a time when I have seen this place with no also. 

I am interested to visit this Mitte Pittaguda falls after your pictures. Great route guide provided by you. Thank you.

Is it safe to go wtih family. I have a small kid who is 5 years old. 

Is the water stream that you mentioned safe for passage with my kid. Or more water force in that stream ?

and how long will the walking distance be to reach Mitte pittaguda from the parking space..?

You can drive up to mitte village and from there you either walk down to falls crossing the stream or take the help of villagers.

If the stream has heavy flow, then help of villagers is compulsory.

We crossed the stream with bare foot but I don't advice the same when you are with family and kids.

Don't expect clean and smooth walk there , it's black soil land and we need to be ready take such walk.

Or villagers help up to falls makes our way easier.

 

Two types of waterfall can be seen in pics. Hope you can see one is vertically down. It's fully rocky we need to be careful.

I think taking help of villagers makes sense, specially for the first timers like us.

Finding a proper accommodation is major hurdle.

We can plan a waterfalls drive and cover around 3~4 waterfalls.

Let me see, if we can find any stay options.

      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.
