Hi all.

I have visited this place again this week.Tried to cover some places that I have missed during the last visit.

This time I covered Tigris Waterfalls(Polluru falls).

One has to travel via Mothugudem to reach these falls by taking a left turn from a junction after you cross Chinturu.

It is approximately 27 kms from the Y junction.

 

Places visited:

 

1.Tigris Falls

2.Explored Coffee Plantation

3.Jalatharangini falls

4.Amruthadhara Falls

Path that leads to the falls.

We can drive through the path where there is enough parking space.

Road to Tigris falls from Mothugudem.

Road condition is very good and this is the same road that one has to take to reach Lambasingi if travelled via Bhadrachalam.

Since that was a weekend, the place was fully crowded with over 200 people.Schools around brought their children for picnic mostly from a village of Chattisgarh.

Coffee Plantation in Maredumilli.

On either side of this road is Coffee plantation.

View from inside the plantation.

The gate at the entrance was locked.So we had to find our own way in.DSC_2141.jpg.389837d1c156930057e4bb81f7deea9b.jpg

 

The place is vast so we couldn't go deep inside as we felt little scary and we are the only ones in that place at that time.:o

Since it is a dense forest light goes out very early.

Path that leads to no where.

Superb @Surya78. Your pictures are beautiful and description is very much informative. Tigris waterfall is one such place about which I've hear it for the first time and I can totally imagine how beautiful it can get during the rains.

Thank you @sagar

Yes. Pictures doesn't justify it's beauty. One has to feel themselves. Tigris falls has more water compared to the other two since it is situated lower from the hill.Being at this place during the monsoon or later shows it's true beauty.

Haha Yes @Ranger.There are still some unexplored places.If there is a bunch of us we can go further deep into the Coffee plantation.

We should try Jungle star night camp situated amidst forest.It would be really exciting staying there for a night

with some trekking, deep into the jungle and setting up a camp fire.Heard some activities are also there, from the management.

Hi 

This is an excellent information.

How long the drive took? Was it a day trip or you stayed overnight at a place?

thanks

It is not possible to cover it in a single day, at least from Hyderabad.
3 days will be ideal for this trip.
December/January is the best time to visit. Avoid this place during summer.

You can go through the below links for accommodation and places to visit details.

Yes, days would be Ideal to do this trip.

Day 1 - Start early from Hyderabad, You reach Maredumilli jungle stay by late noon.

Spend Rest of Day -1 and Day -2 at the place exploring around the forest areas.

Day 3 - You can start back to Hyderabad. If in case you want to explore Lambasingi.. You can take that route and reach Hyderabad but, It is going to get late by the time you reach Home.

Via Rajahmundary is preferable route.
Via Bhadrachalam, I heard views are good but road condition is below average. 

 

If you don't mind bad roads, you can go via Rajahmundary.
While coming back, start early in the morning and take Bhadrachalam route.
Maredumilli is best during early in the morning.

I am very much sure that you wouldn't have any forest stays left vacant the coming weekend being the festive season unless you have made your bookings well in advance. It will definitely be a bit crowded. May be a day drive from Rajahmundry would be best suited during this season.

      Hi.
      I am planning to drive from Mumbai to Srisailam with family. I would be the only driver and so will need night breaks in between. I am confused about the route to take post Solapur. Google map shows 2 routes one via Gulbarga and other via Zaheerabad. Which one is better and a 4 track road with dividers? One friend suggested instead it drive till hubali then to Bellary and then reach Srisailam as the road is good and the total distance might increase only by 150 kms. Please guide. Thanks

      Got very confused where to park my write-up. So keeping it under travelogue section. Mods please shift it to appropriate thread if required.
       
      Where:
      Pala-Pitta Cycling Track, Opposite Botanical Garden, Kondapur, Hyderabad
       
      Why:
      To get some fresh air, morning breeze!
       
      Timing:
      Weekend- Morning 6 to 12 & afternoon 3 to 6 PM.
      Weekdays- Morning 6 to 10 & afternoon 4 to 6 PM.
       
      Pricing:
      For adult it’s Rs 50 (One visit, hourly) & monthly Rs 800 if you want cycle on rent along with the park. But If you own a cycle, then Rs 25(hourly) & Rs 400 respectively for one visit & monthly. Please see an image below (though “hourly” not mentioned but the tariff is on hourly basis)
       
      Payment:
      Cash/Paytm.
       
      Parking:
      2 wheeler parking is just in front of the main gate. 4 wheels can park their vehicles just few meters before the entrance gate, if coming from Kondapur. Below picture is for reference:
       

       
       
      Safety gear etc.:
      i)   Helmets are available there, you can pick for yourself. They will not give you (as usual casual approach for safety).
      ii)  Basic first aid kit is available at the counter.
      iii) No bottle holder in the cycles on rent. However you can take your own water bottle to keep it in the payment counter to have a sip while retuning the cycle.
      iv) Toilet facility is available  
      v)  No eateries are available till date for breakfast or evening snacks
       
      “Hey there’s a cycling park near botanical garden, should we try in tomorrow morning?" – My wife told saturday evening. Cycling or any sort of sport activity is always my cup of tea. Also I can have a small morning car ride to reach the place .. so agreed & plan is all set.
       
      Woke up around 6 in the morning to reach the place at least by 7 O’clock. And we took the Gachibowli-Miyapur road. At the botanical garden crossing took the right turn and few meters drive, we found the parking area on the opposite side of the road (opposite to botanical garden main gate). Parked the car & took a walk to reach the place (barely 50-100 meters).
       
      As I mentioned, two wheeler can park just in front of the main gate. But 4 wheels please find the parking area just few meters away. Your car will be safe so as our road! Please don’t park your car just like that. Just because its not mentioned where the parking is, does not mean one can park like this. It’s a common sense! Don’t know what gatekeeper or security was upto when these cars were parked here!!

       

       

      Tariff, Timings, contact numbers:-

      Cash counter, cycle shed on the left, just after entrance, people sitting with laptop are collecting fees. After payment, proceed straight to the cycle shed. Choose the cycle & helmet of your choice, show the ticket to the person in charge of the shed while taking out cycle.

       

      Cycle shed:-

      Helmet to collect from here:

      My wife was taking a sip from the water bottle while I took a snap of our ride of the day!

      Take only left after coming out from the counter...

      ... because most of the track is "one way". Notice many of the visitors are cycling without helmet.

      Please follow these basic rules:-

      This rule is applicable on road as well:-

      It has some twist & turns to push into those corners 

       

       

      It has got water body, which is bliss on a morning ride:-

      Me & my wife while taking a photo-shoot break!

       

      Now enjoy some random shots of the cycle park. Please be considerable while taking your snaps. Park the cycle on the left side & yes better not to take if the track is crowded, its better if you take those photos while its relatively free.

       

       

       

      Overall we had a great time & planning to visit this place once again!
       
      Signing off!!
      Cheers.
