Looks  like you have taken all the cars of the same segment. Lovely pictures inside.
Yeah@raman. Before this trip we took 2 civic and explored this place. Couldn't explore much due to ground clearance issue. So we decided to take these cars.

@Ranger These pictures were taken near the kotepally reservoir? I visited a place similar to this during June 2017 when I was unable to find the place for Kayaking and ended up here..

Actually there are two lakes around Vikarabad.
Those pictures are from the lake near to Ananthagiri hills.
Kotepally reservoir is located little far away from the Ananthagiri hills.

 

From you pictures, I think you have visited the lake which is near to Ananthagiri hills. This is not kotepally lake.

We traveled some distance and I saw a board which says "Kayaking" but after that we lost the route and ended up at this place.

I don't think it is near Ananthagiri.

We traveled more than 20 km and I followed Google maps for most of the time.

Then it is Kotepally.
On which month did you go?
We went there twice during monsoon and winter.
Both the times Kayaking was available. 

I think it will be stopped during summer.
Water level in your pictures look too low.

This pictures is taken post monsoon, water is flowing over the reservoir.

Also there are multiple entries to the Kotepally reservoir.
Kayaking was available only at one point, you need to take mud track. 

 

There is other road which leads directly to the reservoir. I remember that path gets narrow once we approach the check-dam.

Yes Gautam.. I think we took the wrong route.. first we went on a route which lead us to the dam directly.. we needed to drive on the dam.. but that seemed risky .. so we came back and took other route which lead us to the place which was shown in the pictures.. In the picture that you posted above, I am not able to see the dam where as in the picture that I posted, Dam will be visible on one corner.. We went thr in the month of May end or June 1st week.

How is Ananthagirihills in summer?
Is it worth a visit?

 

Not so great in summer.
Since the monsoon started, from mid of June till December it will be fantastic. 
Definitely must visit place.

1. Start early by 7am
2. Have breakfast at Mrugavani resort.
3. Once you reach ananthagiri, check out temple and surroundings.
4. A small lane opposite to temple, will take you to the view point. (don't miss it)

5. Explore the lake at anthagiri, directions given in page 1.
6. Lunch at Haritha Telangana tourism.
7. Drive to Kotepally, 30 mins drive.
8. Kayaking 

9. Drive back to Hyderabad.

Noted and thanks.. Have not been to this place now (please don't judge me :) -kind of new to hyderabad). Marking in my calendar to check out this place this month or the mid of July.

Love this vehicle..

 

Perfect for those terrains.

On regular roads they are junk.

Very difficult to drive and uncomfortable.

 

Sharing few pictures(PC: Mohammed)

We have done Kayaking through these guys only during our second meetup. 

I think these jeeps belong to Hills and valley.

I'm sure that's the vehicle of the 'Hills and Valleys' resort. I've done some off-roading when I've been there until the Kayak point from the resort. :D
