Quick update Hyderabad to Nagarjunasagar road condition:

 

  • Road condition has improved a lot compared to last year.
  • First 50 kilometers has a beautiful single lane road(similar to srisailam road)
  • Last 100 kilometers is a good single road.

Guest Arindam Ghosh

Hi. Was just going through your wonderful write-up. I plan to visit Nagarjunakonda soon. Could you please tell me what the timings for the return boat ride from the island to the launch station is? If I take a boat at 9:30 will it be enough to see the island. Also please enlighten me on some reasonable hotels in the area. And how long does it take to get to the Ethiopothalla falls?

It will take around 2 hours to explore the Nagarjunakonda island including boat ride.

TSDC Vijay vihar is the best option in Narjunasagar, It has beautiful view.

Nagajunasagar to Ethipothalla drive is just under 30 minutes.

PS: There is some boats inspection going on at NagarjunaSagar, verify if the boats are back to the dock.

I don't think the boats towards Nagarjunakonda have started yet. Anyone who have done this off late, please do update us on the latest conditions and any new rules. Also, are the safety life jackets being provided to the tourists doing this boat ride right now as this was not there before. I think they should implement the provision of giving the life jackets to all the tourists which is most essential for a boat ride.

Yeah it was old sticker.

We removed it since it is too big.

Yes it was indeed mysterious island.

There are many islands in that section.
I'm not sure about exact naming convention.

      This is about June 2016 travel to Tadoba Tiger reserve from Hyderabad. 
       
      In Jan-2016 I had traveled Chopta and Munsiyari  in Uttarakand with another three new travelers met first time at Delhi. One of them Mr. Pandey is from Nagpur and he asked me to come down to Nagpur for visiting Tadoba Andhari Tiger Reserve and booked safari a couple of months before for 12th June 2016 . Till then I had no experience of any forest safary and I was excited to see many wild animals. Mean time our travel friends planned for Ladakh tour in the last week of June, 2016 (25-06-2016). It was one of the dream destination and I know it will be difficult and expensive if I go alone and said OK and booked flight/train to Delhi and back. Then started thinking  it will be hectic for two tours in two weeks. But Pandey who is also coming for Ladakh trip did not agree and made me to visit Tadoba.   
       
      Day 1
      On 11th June we started at 5.00 Hrs in my car from Hyderabad. My wife and son were with me. We are two drivers and had a back seat to sleep if needed. We reached Nirmal by 8.00 Hrs entered town leaving NH44 and had breakfast at Hotel Mayuri. Breakfast was good but when we had lunch next year, it was very bad. We joined NH44 through old NH7 road. Reached Nagpur by 13.00 Hrs and Pandey's home by 13.30. 
       
      Roads up to Adilabad were excellent. Four lane work and Underpass works at Hingenghat (about 30 Kms) not completed and have to change lanes and pass through the villages. Road at places in this section also not good. After that till Nagpur roads are good. 
       
      One more travelmate Mr. Jagtap from Betul (MP) who is mine safety officer in Western Coal Fields (WCF) and a native of Nagpur was supposed to join us with his family in his car. But due to some fire accident in a coal mine he could not join us. 
       
      Our plan was to reach  WCF guest house at Murpar which is about 15 Kms away from Navegaon Gate of Tadoba Reserve and stay overnight and reach the gate early in the morning. 
       
      We started from Nagpur at about 17.00 Hrs and reached Murpar by 19.45 Hrs. While entering Chandrapur district at Umred check-post, local police stopped our car for checking and found one whiskey bottle in our luggage which was kept by Pandey.
       
      The police told me that alcohol  is banned in chandrapur district and we can not carry. I said I am from Hyderabad and I do not the local rules and never imagined that a particular district will have a ban.
       
      He looked at Pandey in the car and asked he is from Maharashtra and how come he do not know. I said he does not know about it and i brought it my self. Some how he took away the bottle and allowed us to proceed further.  
       
      So those who are travelling to Tadoba please do not carry alcohol. 
       
      By the time we reached Chimur which is a little bigger town close to Navegaon Gate, it started drizzling and when we took right turn at Khadsangi for Murpar, heavy downpour started and visibility was hardly 20 mtrs in head lights. Left turn at Khadsangi will lead to Navegaon gate. Mr. Jagtap booked the guest house at WCF mine area, Murpar. We found one Telugu cook in the guest house and when we told him about Umred check post incident, he said we are too lucky to be let off, otherwise they arrest and harras for carrying alcohol. When we asked about dinner he said other than non veg, he will prepare any thing. Non Veg has to be brought from Chimur some 12 Kms away and it is not possible at that time and that too in heavy rain. We ordered roti, dal and sabji with omlets. 
       
      Mean time me and pandey went to Khadsangi in the rain and enquired about safari vehicles. we were told that there is no need to book in advance and Gypsy cars will be available at the gate as per the serial and as many as permitted for the day/session. We had dinner and had good sleep. 
       
      Day 2 
       
      We got up early and reached Navegaon gate before 5.30 Hrs. We found only one car before us at the gate. We went to gate office and booked a safari car and engaged a Guide. Safari car is for Rs. 600 and Guide Rs.350 (That's what I remember). Sky is clear and we found water of previous night's rain on the roads pot holes. We entered the forest by 5.45. Our guide said it is always advantage of more sightings if your car is first and it proved correct. 
       
      Myself with wife and kids of Pandey

       
      The first site before entering the core area

       

       
      Second sighting a glimpse of bear  

       

       

        Then a Jackal 

      There were lot of birds and I could not shoot them as I do not have a proper lens. 

       

      The same bear came out of the forest and crossed our path. 

      We were told that Tiger will come here but after waiting enough time he did not turned up. 

       

      There are many deers and Neelgai

       

      Obviously not happy with our presence

       

      Canter from Moharli gate 

      Now many jeeps arrived and waiting at a water hole for the arrival of the Big Cat. 
       
      But it did not show up and the our morning session ended. Little disappointed and our guide was telling us that people make more than six safaris and go back without seeing a Tiger. We had a booking for afternoon safari also. With a little hope we returned to our guest house. 

       

      On the way back from morning safari

       

      Padey with our Driver and Guide. 
       
      Will continue with after noon Safari..
