Hyderabad Weekend Getaways under 200 kilometers

Recommended Posts

I wud also suggest forest camping in eturunagaram.. it's almost like the end of Warangal. The river Godavari flows between the forest.. there is a forest guest house which can be opted for stay. Bogatha falls is very by :) :)

Most of the locations in India are best to explore during monsoon and winter.

Hyderabad has geographical disadvantage. We need to travel at least 600+ kilometers for a proper hill station.

Hey @Ranger got to identify another quick getaway from Hyderabad near Jadcherla. This place is known as "The Mayuri Forest Park / Mayuri Ecopark". This place is perfect for adventure seeking folks who love Camping / Star Gazing. No specific accommodation except camping here but a lot of adventure activities. One of my friend has gone there with an adventure club for trekking last weekend and the place looks cool with some Snakes spotting. Attaching few pictures borrowed from him.

 

I am trying to get more information on local contact person at this place if a group want to go there, last weekend a group of 20 folks (Including a couple of my friends) have been here for via an adventure club in Hyderabad and paid ~700INR per head (Note: To the group organizers not Mayuri Eco Park) and were provided with Entry, Activities, Dinner and Breakfast. Heard Night trek is more fun than a day one here!! They found both Snakes while doing Night Trek only!

 

Will add few more pics of the Night Trek and their Tents as soon as I get it. Hope this information helps our adventure seeking / Star Gazing loving members a little away from Vikarabad!! :)

May be we can plan this once the monsoon kicks in.
I think it is better to avoid this place during summer?

Hyderabad: In its attempt to make people aware of the scenic beauties and hidden tourist hotspots, the State Forest Department on Friday introduced special eco-tourism packages in Jayashankar Bhupalpally district, a press release said.

The Forest Department has come out with three packages for nature lovers in order to showcase places like Eturunagaram Wildlife Sanctuary, Laknavaram lake, Bogatha Waterfalls, Sammakka Saralamma Jatara area, Kaleshwaram temple and Prathapagiri Kota in the district.
The special package of Rs 2,000 per tourist will cover tourist attractions like cycling, trekking, primitive human caves, blackberry island, Kondaveeti view point along with food and guide facilities.

Another package worth Rs 2,000 offers facilities like stay in a tent, camp fire, boating, island visit, trekking, journey on a bullock cart and even a lake view safari.

Keeping in mind the need of adventure seekers, Forest officials are also offering rock climbing, rappelling, trekking and bouldering activities, as part of the third package.
