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.

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 :)

      *** Even Though this Travel is done back in march ,  by Sleeper Bus and Flight - I think its eligible to get into this Section as I would post pictures  of Road and Few Places of interest. ***
       
      Well The Most Asked Question either in ID whatsApp or Facebook  - Which Route is Best from Hyderabad to Goa and Back.
       -- Teaser Pic
       
       
                        This was done in March and my friend  had to attend an Meeting in Goa - He booked ticket for me But I have  missed out the flight from Hyderabad became blessing in disguise .
       I have booked  VRL travels Sleeper coach Bus to reach Goa the Next day where I could enjoy the journey and being a road enthusiast I preferred sitting in Cabin and Enjoy instead of the sleeper Berth - somehow i felt the sleeper berth cramp and bumpy 
      Bus was scheduled at 19:00 hrs Departure and boarding was at Lakdikapul , where a mini bus took all of us to Aaramgarh , Reached Aaramgarh by 19:00 , but had to wait about half-an hour for the Bus to arrive   .
                      Bus was almost Full and it is due to they have adjusted passengers who booked AC  Seater bus into here   - Where as I have paid 1700+ for sleeper Bus and people who booked 800Rs Ticket were fortunate enough to get into sleeper Bus
      - Picked up a passenger in between , near Shamshabad and slowly Bus picked up and reached a Dhaba Near Jadcherla  for Dinner Break - I had food packed from home and as per fellow passengers food was pathetic and hotel was just OK.
      -- Bu Stared from Jadcherla and took Mahabubnagar road  and below route was taken
        MahabubNagar - Raichur - Madgal - BagalKot- Belgaum - ChorlaGhat - Goa
      -- Below was the Road condition
      Hyderabad - MahabubNagar : Road was Good
      MahabubNagar - Raichur : Road works were on then and little diversions too
      Raichur - Madgal - Bagalkot : Its double road and we have to get down whenever an bigger vehicle or 4 wheeler came from opposite end  and Needless to say while in Karnataka Expect many speed breakers too ..
      Bagalkot - Belgaum : Road was good .. Reached early in the Morning - Hence it was easy to cross Belgaum
       
      Belgaum to Start of the Ghat Road - it was double road and being early morning there was some truck traffic and also travel buses reaching Belgaum , Many people were doing walking /jogging by the side of the road and seen some people doing Yoga too  
      Needs to be careful while driving at the stretch
      --- Once reaching the start of the Ghat Bus has stopped at decent Hotel for Bio Break and it was around 6:00 A:M in the Morning.
      It took around 3 hours to reach Goa [Private Buses Parking Yard] as road was through Ghats  , Some rural villages and little delay at check posts - Being Morning time encountered little traffic reaching Goa ]
       
       Stayed a Hotel Govia Homes Near Candolim Beach - Hotel was home stay kind and had good swimming pool - Able to tour only Candolim and Baga Beaches and a guided tour with mini bus provided 
      .
       All beaches that i have toured were well maintained maximum care is taken to avoid plastic - even though boozing is not allowed at sea shore near by Beaches but i could see few people doing that 
       
       
      Goa is Pretty costly and Bargain is the funda works here - never hesitate to bargain if you are shopping in the shops road by and Near beaches too
      Food is pathetic and costly especially people from Telangana and Andhra would find food not so good , me being vegetarian has less options to chose and my friends who took non veg said its pathetic and not for spice lovers ..I have seen few people from TS and AP getting Induction stoves and cooking as they found food very very waste in taste .
       
      -- I think there is very much to explore in Goa Beyond Beaches and Booze , something that always pulls back to the place may be its weather , people  or its picturesque locations and Beautiful Beaches   - that might be the reason people  always wants to make it despite of the hard roads and other reasons like cost and stay options - There is always something more left to explore in Goa as per the conversations with people and foreigners who were visiting for nth time who are always finding a new place and Goa wears  different colors accordingly to the different seasons

      I need some latest suggestions please.

      We recently had a trip from Hyderabad to Bidar. Me with my wife and two other friends started at morning 6  o'clock and returned to Hyderabad by 6:45 pm. 
       
      Trip Details:
      Date: 29 June 2019
      Places Visited: Bidar Fort, Rangeen Mahal, Guru Nanak Jhira Sahib
      Route: Madhapur - Chanda Nagar - Zaheerabad - Bidar Fort
      Distance Covered: 266.4 km
       
      There was plan to visit Bidar along with Gulberga but we canceled Gulberga as we wanted to have a one day trip without hassle. Its just start of monsoon so weather was cool and while returning it rained little. So overall it was a nice trip. Attaching few pictures taken.
       
      Inner Ring Road, Bidar

       

       

       

       

       

       

      Bidar Fort and Rangeen Mahal

       

       

       

       

       

       

       

       

       

      Gurudwara Nanak Jhira
      Bahamani Tombs

      Hazrath Multani Baba Dargah

      Breakfast: At Hyderabad Delight Restaurant. They have all south indian items like idli, dosa, puri. Food was tasty and good. Irani tea was awesome. Car parking is available. 
       
      Lunch: At Royal Anmol Deluxe Family Restaurant. We had Dum Biryani and Chicken Drumstick. Good ambiance and food quantity but taste was average. There is a small car parking but you have to park on road side if you are travelling on weekends.
