Hyderabad To Ethipothala Water Falls

Recommended Posts

Trip Details: Hyderabad to Ethipothala Waterfalls via Nagarjuna Sagar

Duration: 2 Days

Vehicle: dZire

 

Route:

Hyderabad > Nagarjuna Sagar > Ethipothala falls

 

This was one of our regular weekend getaways. We plan all of a sudden, start late and end up reaching the place very late as usual. :) so we had to stay overnight and explore the remainder of the places next day.

 

We started late at around 11 in the morning (4 Guys, 1 Car) and reached Ethipothala waterfalls by 7 PM exploring several places in between and taking lots of breaks for photography, food etc. To reach the destination, you need to take a left turn after approximately 14kms from Nagarjuna Sagar. After taking the left, again you need to drive for approximately 11 km. Dont remember the exact details though. 

 

The waterfall is located inside the Haritha resort. We booked accommodation after reaching there. There were approximately 6 rooms (2 AC and 4 Non AC). The rooms were ill maintained (lot of ants, termites and monkeys in the surroundings). The overall look and feel of the location is acceptable but maintenance is on the poorer side because the number of people who prefer to stay there overnight is very low.

 

There is a restaurant inside the resort as well but they close by 9 PM in the night. You will not get any food after that time. 

 

After we reached the resort, we got fresh up, ordered food from the restaurant and started exploring the resort and the 11 km stretch. The waterfall is adjacent to the resort but we couldn't see anything in the night but could hear the sound of the water fall. 

 

After the brief exploration session, we came back to our rooms, had food and went to sleep in those badly maintained rooms. 

 

Woke up the next morning and there were a lot of monkeys making lot of noise in the premises. Explored the resort in the day light along with the water falls. The surroundings of the Waterfalls were scenic.

 

There were few steps to go down the hill and explore but we cannot go near the waterfall as it was being used as a breeding center for crocodiles. We went down the steps after having breakfast in the restaurant and explored those places for some time. It was quite a task to come up those steps in those sunny days.

 

Post the exploration sessions, had Lunch in the restaurant and returned back to Hyderabad by Night.

Awesome pictures @Jagan24. How much did the Haritha resort cost you for this stay per night and I guess there are no better places than Haritha around nagarjunasagar. Or did I miss to know any new resorts? :o

Agree on it.
This resort has very poor reviews.
I have been to  the waterfalls few times, but never stayed there.

If they maintined it well and made it little isolated, it could have been beautiful location.

I gave up in the mid way.
After looking at your pictures. Looks like I missed a  very good view point. 
Will give it a try one the monsoon kicks-in.
