Hyderabad to Kondapochamma Sagar Reservoir: A short drive gateway


Recommended Posts

After unlock 4.0 we started exploring options for travel, which should be short one and safe.

Got info about Kondapochamma reservoir and decided to explore it.

 

Initial plan was to catch sunrise. But home's chief minister and leader of opposition (my son, they rules the house) objected this.

So started around 8 in the morning from Miyapur.

 

Kondapochamma entry:
It has two entries, main entry and secondary entry.

Some times main entry is closed, no need to disappoint. There is one more entry from the back side.
Drive a little further ahead you can find another entry, but the road is patchy.  

  1. Kondapocharamma First Entry point location details(High crowd) :  https://goo.gl/maps/N1e4tAC9bmYTB4fu8
  2. Kondapocharamma Second Entry point location details (Medium crowd)https://goo.gl/maps/Ca3L4CuGkEc95s8E7
  3. Kondapocharamma Third Entry point location details (Less crowd😞https://goo.gl/maps/AaRAWCpYnqos3Avg8

 

Road condition from Hyderabad to Kondapochamma:

Roads are excellent till reservoir ( just 2 to 3 km of bad road near to it). Distance is around 65 km.

 

Time spent at Kondapochamma:

It is good location for relaxation and photography. We spend around 2 hours there, took breakfast and return back by 2PM in afternoon.

 

Best time to visit Kondapochamma:

Note: Best time to explore is early morning or late evening.

 

Food availability at Kondapochamma:

Carry own food and water, you will find nothing around it.

 

Avoid Kondapochamma on weekends:

Avoid Kondapochamma during weekends, it is usually overcrowded.
If you plan on weekend, start early in the morning from Hyderabad. 
Crowd picks up post 10AM.

 

Some of the important facts about Kondapochamma sagar reservoir:

  • It is part of multi-stage lift Irrigation of Kaleshwaram
  • Plan is to make Godavari river live through out the year over a streach of 274 kilometers to make farming efficient.
  • It is around 15 kilometers in area
  • Costed around 1700 crores, water is spread around 17 sqkms
  • Maximum depth is around 600M
  • Provides irrigation to around 2,85,000 acres through canals

So anyone can take entry from the back side.

Is it easy to find(back entry)?

Very easy. One needs to travel few metres ahead. And from temple need to take right turn. Road is bit bad.

Very informative post @mit1682.. Thank you for sharing. I have paid my visit a few weeks ago when the weather itched for a long drive.. Though I failed to reach the top because of the crowd, it was a lovely evening. Could you share the co-ordinaries of an other entry that you had mentioned..? 
 

Sharing a few pictures of my visit.. 

 

Long traffic queues all along.. 😊

    • Hyderabad to Gandikota, Grand canyon of India
      Sharing a post by Radhika Kundur:   History of Gandikota from Wiki Gandikota is a village and historical fort on the right bank of the Penna river, 15 km from Jammalamadugu in Kadapa district, Andhra Pradesh, India.   The fort was the center of power for various dynasties, such as the Kalyani Chalukyas, Pemmasani Kamma Nayakas, and the Golconda Sultanate. Gandikota was the capital of Pemmasani Kamma Nayakas for more than 300 years. Pemmasani Ramalinga Nayaka constructed the huge fort at Gandikota with 101 towers replacing the previous sand fort constructed by Kaka Raja, Vassals of Kalyani Chalukya rulers.    Best route from Hyderabad to Gandikota Hyderabad ->Kurnool ->Nadyal -> Gandikota If you take above route you can cover following places as well: Belum Caves Ahobilam  
      Below place is yet to open for public, please check before visiting has great adventure activities:
        https://www.facebook.com/Adventuresportsacademygandikota/

        A MUCH needed break from the monotony. With the wildest bunch of friends 3 days 2 nights.   Stayed at this amazingly comfortable tourism place which is not open yet. A place which will surprise you soon.( we could go because it was friend’s/family )   On offer are Rappelling , quads on a quad trail inside the property , kayaks , guided treks through the paths unknown (they open up to breath taking views ) , guided tour to the fort and its little secrets.also coming soon is a ropeway cable car scene.   One of the partners is the only Indian who has scaled Mt Everest solo. His team is just simply amazing. They were very encouraging, experienced and kind.   6.3hrs /382 km with 1 hr lunch break and 2 tea breaks. 11 of us ages ranging from 7 to 82.   Team Skoda with a Creta cretin thrown into the melee (we like our Skodas )   Lunch going to Gandikota was at Hill park at Jadcherla (we could not make it to Pyramid near Kurnool on time ) and while coming The Pyramid food park at Kothakota.   During our stay the accommodation provided us with hot piping meals on time - ragi Sangati , uggani and the likes. Simple yet hearty.   We thankfully got home before Nandyal and the area got flooded yesterday. (But we absolutely would not have minded being stranded where we stayed )

    • Hyderabad to Ranganayaka Sagar reservoir - A short weekend getaway
      We were literally frustrated due to lockdown and were looking for a short drive in the month of June. Then we got information about safe location - Ranganaya Sagar reservoir. I checked with my Baleno group BOCH ( Baleno Owners Club Hyderabad) and found one more couple for ride. We started from Hyderabad at 7 am and reached there by 10 am. Being 100 km away from Hyderabad you will find less crowd on weekends. But if you really want to enjoy plan travel on weekdays.
       
      Road condition from Hyderabad to Ranganaya Sagar:
      Roads are excellent till reservoir. Distance is around 115 km.
       
      Time spent at Ranganaya Sagar:
      It is good location for relaxation and photography. We spend around 4 hours there, had our lunch and return back by 7PM in evening.
       
      Best time to visit Ranganaya Sagar:
      Note: Best time to explore is early morning or late evening to witnesses sunrise and sunset.
       
      Food availability at Ranganaya Sagar:
      Carry own food and water, you will find nothing around it.

    • Road trips in Electric Car experience
      Sharing electric car driving experience from the past five months. 
       
       
      Vehicle: 
      Tesla model X, Long range
      Real world range :
      500 Kilometers 

      Useable range:
      400 Kilometers (We usually charge before last 100 kilometers distance to empty)

       
      Battery capacity:
      100 KWH
       
      Charge stations:
      Different types of charging stations:
      Tesla super chargers Home chargers Destination chargers Office commute chargers  Government chargers   
      1. Tesla super chargers:
      10% to 90% charge is usually completed under 40 minutes.
      Tesla recently introduced V3 charging stations with 200 KWH capacity.
       
      Charging is free for cars like Model S and X
      Cars like Model 3 an Y has nominal fee.
       
      Inside city limits, some stations are available near malls, so plug-in and by the time you done your grocery shopping.
      Car is ready with 90% charge.
       
      Highways, Super chargers are very helpful on highways. 
      They are located near restaurants/malls/food outlets/supermarkets.
      99% times one wont realise that it is a charging break. 
      By the time we fresh-up, eat food and take loo break car is ready. 
       
      2. Home Chargers:
      Usually they take around 9 hours to charge, key word "Over nigh charging"
       
      Full charge @ Home costs around 700/- (roughly comes around 1.5~2 rupee per kilometer)
       
      Most of the old infra(housing) apartments sill lack charging facilities, some users completely depend on SuperChargers around their home.
      No such issues for people living in independent housing facilities. 
       
      3. Destination Chargers:
      Destination chargers are redefining road trips in Tesla, few hotels started implementing over nigh charging stations. 
      They are very helpful and reduce the overall charging time and range anxiety.
       
      4. Office commute chargers :
      These are located at office premises, they usually have ~ 2 hours limit. They are free of cost.
      They are slow but they add around 80 kilometers range, these are built to cover your office commute.
      5. Government chargers:
      Government chargers are rapidly increasing in states like California. There is huge investment pumping into the charging infra.
      These are generic, can be used by any car. 
       

      Range/Mileage:
      Traditional cars perform better on highways compared to city limits.
      EVs don't loose much range inside limits, in-fact they are more efficient inside city limits.
      Ev's loose range rapidly when driven at high speeds, above 120 kmph.
      Under 120 kmph be it city limits or highways, range stays flat.
       
       
      Performance 
      There is on competition here, electric cars wins hands down.
      Cars like model X and S can shame some likes of Ferrari/Lambo etc
      They are super quick 0-100
      They win most of the signal drags
      They are unreliable quick
       
      0-100(S) : 2.5 seconds
       
      Long drive planner:
      Tesla inbuilt road trip planner is fantastic.
      900 kilometers trip plan : 15 minutes(Planned for road trip)+ 45 minutes (Lunch break) + 35 minutes (Tea break/Shopping)

      Distance: 120 kms.  Road condition: Excellent (upto Zaheerabad) You divert from the highway towards Chincholi forest reserve near the Mahindra factory exit. The road is a single lane road and through the farms. 
        We started from Miyapur around 7 AM in 3 cars. Packed all the food and water. 
      Note: Be sure to carry your shoes as there would be a short trek to reach the banks of the lake. 
      I will let the pictures do the talking.   The road towards the Chincholi forest after getting down the NH 65

      The weather was good as the sun shone gently on us that morning


      The entry gate of the Chincholi forest was very welcoming


      Though it was a mud track beyond the gate, the drive was smooth and fun.

       
      The track will is pretty narrow to just fit in 1 car at a time




      Our first pit stop was a small temple enroute amidst the Chincholi forest
