One of the best videos I have watched. Kudos to the maker. @Ranger You have made it even more easier for us to reach these places. Great effort and great post. Few of us are aware of these waterfalls but not all and I hope this reaches out to many members of the country. Cheers!

Can we cover all the places in a single drive?

 

At least a nights stay is required to cover all of these as many are not accessible by road so easily. A few of these need a bit of treks and hikes to do. Let's plan to these this August/September.

Great work by Satya Narayana

Loved each and every frame.

He is blessed with lot of talent.

Thank you ranger for consolidating the video. 

 

First time I have seen such a video by government. 

Looks like Telangana government are doing some work to promote tourism. 

 

If they allow camping in such places, it will be definitely a successful campaign. 

 

Can we cover all the places in a single drive?

 

I think it will take 2~3 days to cover all the places.

But they can be covered at a time, most of the located close to each other.

 

Why don't we all plan a drive together?

Provided, The crowd should act responsible by not littering around the place and spoiling the nature. This is very much a common problem all over India with the crowd be they educated or not.

 

We can start exploring these in the list in August. :)

    • Hyderabad to Deverakonda and Nagrajuna Sagar Back Waters
      It was my first road trip in Covid-19 time. My last trip was in Feb-2020 to Kolhapur and since then I was restless for 7 months in Covid. Normally I used to travel during my birthday in July first week and I was planning for a travel despite Covid-19. But the virus did not like the idea and infected me in the end of June and I was almost sick for a month.

      The weather in Hyderabad added charm in atmosphere. We decided to explore Gottam gutta which was there in my Bucket list and pending for long time.
       
      Planning done, day decided (Friday as being less crowed).
       
      My companion in travel:
      Car Baleno Zeta CVT – reliable partner. Smartphone Poco f1 – all the photos were taken with it. And most importantly Home minister and leader of opposition (son). They rule the house and without them trip is impossible.
      Happiness is not a station you arrive at, but a manner of travelling
       
      Things to carry:
      Own food and water to avoid contact with outsider. Sun cream, sunglasses & Hats. Umbrella (due to rainy season). Trekking shoes (useful for trekking).  
      Difficulty level:
      No problem for elders and kids.  Care to be taken while trekking at Chincholi wildlife sanctuary. People with difficulty in breathing should avoid it.  
      Road condition:
      Roads are good till Zaheerabad. After that it is mixed of good and bad road but manageable by car and bikes.  
      Best time to visit:
      The monsoon is the best season to visit the place with family and tourists will not regret having chosen the destination. If you hate crowed and wants to enjoy peacefully then plan trip on weekdays.    
      Introduction to Gottam gutta:
      People looking for adventure and Nature lovers can relax at the picturesque Gottam Gutta located on the Telangana-Karnataka border. Surrounded by forests and eddies of the Chandrampally dam on the Bhima River in Karnataka.
      The government of Karnataka built the project in the village of Chandrampally in Chincholi Taluka of the district of Gulbarga.
       
      Gottam Gutta Route Map:
      To reach gottam gutta there are two routes.
      One is a regular route through the village where the dam is also present; the name of the dam is Chandrampalli dam.
      Another route is through few small villages and a forest. 
       
      Hyderabad > Sangareddy > Zaheerabad > Govindapur >  Mogudampalli > Chincholi wildlife sanctuary > Gottam Gutta
       
      We took first route to reach dam and second route for return journey.

       
      Best places to visit in this area:
      Chandrampalli dam. Chincholi Wildlife Sanctuary. Ethipotala falls.  
      1. Details about Chandrampalli dam:
      Chandrampalli Dam is built across the Bhima River. The dam is located in Chandrampalli village of Chincholi taluq under the Gulbarga district of Karnataka. As one of the main dams in the district, dam is responsible for the irrigation of several villages in Chincholi taluka.

      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 - Ranganayaka 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 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 Ranganayaka Sagar:
      Roads are excellent till reservoir. Distance is around 115 km.
       
      Time spent at Ranganayaka 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 Ranganayaka Sagar:
      Note: Best time to explore is early morning or late evening to witnesses sunrise and sunset.
       
      Food availability at Ranganayaka Sagar:
      Carry own food and water, you will find nothing around it.
       
      Some of the important facts about Ranganayaka 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 stretch of 274 kilometers to make farming efficient. Provides irrigation
