Last weekend, it was completely isolated.

If we go in a group, we can go down further(foot hills). 

Going alone to this place is not safe.

Gottam gutta and waterfalls are two different locations?

Did you visit during monsoon?
Waterfalls will be dry by now, If I am not wrong

thank you for your kind words :)

Yes the waterfalls I posted and gottamgutta are two different locations, may be around 15km. I can't recollect exactly but they are not close and if I'm not wrong the water from ethipoda flows into gottamgutta.
I visited the place in Sep 2015, after the first rains. As you can see the gottamgutta is empty when I was there.

 You guys are true inspiration for the people who struggle to find out some good places around Hyderabad for weekend getaway.  Never heard about this place yet very nearby. Thanks for sharing guys. Kudos!! And, as always, pictures are really great!

No timings, would suggest you to avoid the place during the night time. Early morning is the best time to visit.
No entry fee.

 

Thank you for the update.

Adding few points from my research.

 

This place has multiple names.

  • Gottamgutta
  • Gottam gotta

 

While using google maps, we should search for Chincholi wild life sanctuary. 

Also other side of the water body is called chandrampally.

According to the reports Gottamgutta side view is much better than Chandrampally.

"As soon as we entered the Karnataka border, there were tourism boards.
We were impressed for sure, they have built roads in such a remote area to promote tourism."

 

Yes. thats true.

Been to Apsarkonda, Karnataka, India recently. Its on the way to Murdeshwar from Gokarna.

The place looks like remote, there is only a village near by and no bug city near. But I see well laid roads, Park on the Hill so clean and neat. Amazingly, the staff and parking guy are on duty by 9AM.

So this destination is ideal during monsoon?

 

Is it safe for trekking?

Place looks very isolated from the images.

 

I don't think this is family safe place!

 

Interesting to see such a place. 

I guess it is Karnataka boarder.

Yes, it should be good to go in monsoon.
But I'm not sure about the mud track.

A vehicle with good GC can do it easily, there can be some slush.

 

There are small waterfalls, which will be active during monsoon.

Safety can be an issue.

Place is not commercial.

Yes, It is in Telangana and Karnataka boarder.

But this place comes under Karnataka.

 

They developed this place for tourism.

This shows  their commitment of Karnataka tourism, 

They came all the way and created a tourist destination in such an isolated place. 

 

It worth a one time visit, early morning would be ideal.

Interesting place.

Now Karnataka tourism should build a resort over the hill edge!

I bet many Hyderabadies will drive down.

Not safe to go alone.
Place is very secluded.

 

Recent lynching incident in Bidar, kills the confidence further.  

 

New highway to Zaheerabad is fun to go on a quick getaway. 

How is the traffic?

Updating few latest pictures shared by Rahul Sharma.

 

Nice pictures @rahul sharma. The place looks very much green and with this lovely weather in Hyderabad right now, I feel this could be perfect in the early morning breeze :)

      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.
