Hyderabad to Sathoddi Water falls - Gokarna & Murdeshwar.

Recommended Posts

Dear friends,
This is my very first travelogue in India Drive. Though I have made several trips, I didn't write anything up here. 

Travel Date 03/31/2018 – 04/02/2018 from Hyderabad to Gokarna & Murdeshwar in Ford EcoSports.

 

This must have been one of the most exciting and in a way unplanned vacation, I had with my office team. Though we had marked the dates almost a couple of days ago, we were a little unsure till the last minute whether we wanted to really go to Gokarna or not.

 

Finally, on Thursday we decided to go and informed my team to come to office on Friday along with their luggage. Friday Morning, I had a good Sleep so that I can drive in night.

 

My team works in EST timings, so we planned to start our trip by 1AM but due to some work it got delayed to 3.00AM and Finally we hit the road at 3.15AM.

 

Route Taken:

Hyderabad - Mahbubnagar - Raichur - Sindhanur - Hubbali - Sathoddi Falls - Shivapura Hanging Bridge - Yellapur - Gokarna - Murdeshwar – Raichur -Mahbubnagar – Hyderabad.

 

Total Distance: 1600 kms

Day 1 : Sathoddi Water Falls and Shivapura Hanging Bridge. 

Day 2 Gokarna & Mudeshwar

 

Night Stay at White House Beach resort (Tent Accommodation) - Gokarna DSC07185.JPG.36c766e32ffcb838d24a8ba08a5e2612.JPG

Thank you so much @sagar. By night 9PM we were at gokarna and before starting from hyderabad i had reserved the tent accomdation for Rs 1200 and i found it reasonable for 4 people.

Yes, it is on the way to sathoddi waterfalls. Water falls are very deep into forest and driving was crazy.

This trip was very short for 2 days.

 

Road was good till mahbubhnagar and then we entered into hell and moved around 20kms very bad.

 

Road construction work was going on. From Raichur road was as usual with lot of speed bumpers.

We reached to sathoddi waterfalls around 2.00PM and spent some quality time, on the way back we went to shivapura hanging bridge.  

 

While searching for accomdation i found white house beach resort. It is on top of hill and it gives experience of off road driving. It is tent accomdation but not near beach. You have to drive around 5kms to reach om beach or kudle beach.

 

I reserved it for Rs 1500 but they gave discount and finally paid Rs1200.

I think we should suggest everyone to choose Gulburga, Bijapur rout instead of Raichur rout from Hyderabad. Raichur rout we can't even touch 30/40 for some distance.

Road is good till Gulbarga, but once we cross Gulbarga, speed bumps again come into picture.

One cannot avoid speed bumps on Karnataka state highways.

lol, I have to agree on this..
Even Bangalore to Mysuru is filled with speed bumps and barricades.

I have experienced Raichur road numerous times enroute to Goa.

It is a mess.

Will take a look at your suggestion.

Love the colour of your EcoSport.

 

Short and crisp travel log.

I wonder how you guys managed to drive so much in very few days.

 

It is a good share, place is pretty much unknown for many hyderabadies.
