Lets do it in August? 

First/Second week are good to go.

 

Please fix a date.
I know it is too early to plan.
But without fixing a date we will forget about it.

 

My question to all the members? If we can cover all the waterfalls in two/three days.

Where to start?
Where to stay?

On which date?

How many members willing to join?

Like you have mentioned, we will have to fix the dates first to see how many members would be available! August has a long weekend (Aug 15 combined with Planned Leaves I mean), most of them would have had planned it already if I am not wrong since it is hardly only a month away from now!

August 15th looks ideal for the drive.

But lets see, since many members would have planned some trip on the long weekend.

I have visited few of they, very beautiful places to explore. 

Only issue is lack of facilities.

Thanks for sharing the current status of the flow @Anand Singh.. :) I guess, the day was sunny during your drive. The place around the falls always looks dry to me. May be because of the rocky terrain around.

Usually during this time of the year, the flow is even more high but I feel this year lacked rains so far and that should be the reason for this :(

Water was in good flow and now it is expected more heavily water falls.

 

This year rains are pretty low around Telangana.

From your pictures, i can see that flow is on the lower side.

 

During monsoon, flow is very high.

I heard there is a fence around waterfalls,

We can't reach the foot hills of waterfalls, Is it true?

Exactly! Water flow is low, usually by this time water levels / flow will generally be high covering the rocky surface

 

I think, we should do Bogatha falls soon... I have seen my friend's recent trip to Bogatha and the water flow is quite good at the moment :D

True, We should not do that as per security restrictions but  their are no security/police, so people do what ever they want and i saw many people climbing on top of the falls.So would advise the travellers not to climb on to the hills to get access to the water falls.ONE SLIP AND YOU CAN LOOSE BALANCE AND GO STRAIGHT DOWN TO THE BOTTOM OF THE FALLS WHICH ARE AT A HEIGHT OF Approx more than 100 ft.

    • 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
