Officially camping is not allowed in Ananthagiri hills.
10 people can draw attention. If it is a smaller number , you can manage.
You can contact Hill and Valley resort guys.

There are so safety issues in Vikarabad/Ananthagiri.

Also your group is big.

Take rent from HATS club(Dheeraj)

He can also guide you the location to camp.

There are some private fields, where you can camp.

Regarding the forest access from temple.

It is blocked officially.

Now people can go inside the forest again. 

 

It is a dam good place, hope it wont get spoiled with plastic.

Thank you for the update.

 

Which lake did you go?

Kotepally or the lake near to Vikarabad.

Any idea about Kayaking in Ananthagiri hills.

I think it is organised by Hills and Valley resort guys.

yes,

They are not consistent.

Some times it is available, some times it is not. 

 

Novemebr/December early morning is perfect for Vikarabad visit. 

 

Any one planning to visit, let me know.

we can drive down.

There are two Kayaking options in Vikarabad.

 

1. Kotepally 

2. Sarpanapally lake 

 

Kotepally kayaking is organised by a govt contractor. 

Sarpanpally lake kayaking is organised by hills and valley owners.

 

Kayaking is good only in the evenings. 

Don't try it during afternoon.

 

Life jackets are provided at both the venues and they are safe.

As part our team outing we went to hills and valley adventure park.

The food is ok and the events at the park are good.

Like zipline, commando net, ATVs etc.
As part of package they also arranged kayaking in sarpanpally lake.

 

It was pretty good and I took 2 laps on each boat 2 people can sit.

It was in year 2016 I attended. Resort has a stay and they took us inside a forest for few km.

 

So need to check the conditions in the resort now and the water level in the lake.

When I'm travelling in last month via this lake on train found not much water in the lake. So check before you make a plan.

Hills and Valley Resort is very average now.

Kayaking is still fine. 

 

But contact before you go.

Some times, it is not operational.

Hey Shiva, We have visited this place while in construction during our last breakfast drive to Vikarabad. It was supposedly going to get inaugurated this month. Checked with the prices and felt it wasn't worthy enough. They quoted 1800 INR per head for camping and food per night. Let's wait and see until it opens up fully :D
