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 ?

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.

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