Thanks for sharing this post Gowtham. This is very helpful for us to go on a short drive from our hectic weekdays.

There are few forts like Bhongir, Rachakonda, Devarakonda near Nalgonda which are below 150kms I guess. And also Medak fort. Are these forts worth visiting? I think there are many forts near nalgonda, mahabubnagar, nizamabad.

Jaffargadd fort is in Warangal..
There are two routes to reach the place.
1. Route 1 is Warangal Highway - station ganpur - take right and need to touch Suryapet Vijayawada highway
2. Route 2 is Vijayawada highway and we need to take left towards station ganpur..
Road is under repair for 4 lane extension. However its not too bad road. :)
The fort is very less explored place to anybody.
It's so vast in my opinion.
There is temple in the fort which needs a trek to reach it. You can google about the place..

Superb information @etoor . I keep visiting Warangal quite frequently but haven't of this place anytime. Thanks a lot for throwing some light on such an unexplored place. Can you share the pictures if you have any?

Think it will be the onset of Rainy season N good rains to enjoy, Nagarjuna Sagar, Kuntala Waterfalls, Srisailam

Most of the locations in India are best to explore during monsoon and winter.

Hyderabad has geographical disadvantage. We need to travel at least 600+ kilometers for a proper hill station.

Hey @Ranger got to identify another quick getaway from Hyderabad near Jadcherla. This place is known as "The Mayuri Forest Park / Mayuri Ecopark". This place is perfect for adventure seeking folks who love Camping / Star Gazing. No specific accommodation except camping here but a lot of adventure activities. One of my friend has gone there with an adventure club for trekking last weekend and the place looks cool with some Snakes spotting. Attaching few pictures borrowed from him.

 

I am trying to get more information on local contact person at this place if a group want to go there, last weekend a group of 20 folks (Including a couple of my friends) have been here for via an adventure club in Hyderabad and paid ~700INR per head (Note: To the group organizers not Mayuri Eco Park) and were provided with Entry, Activities, Dinner and Breakfast. Heard Night trek is more fun than a day one here!! They found both Snakes while doing Night Trek only!

 

Will add few more pics of the Night Trek and their Tents as soon as I get it. Hope this information helps our adventure seeking / Star Gazing loving members a little away from Vikarabad!! :)

    • Hyderabad to Gottamgutta, A short weekend getaway..
      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 welcome


      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

    • Road trip in Electric Vehicle, San Francisco to Los Angeles
      Sharing a road trip experience in Tesla, will be update this log on daily basis(Three days trip). 
      This is not a leisure travel, We had to go on a work trip from SF to LA.
      I will be sharing road trip experience in EV with Pros and Cons when compared with ICE cars.

       
      Car Specifications:
      Range: 600 kilometers per charge (EPA) 0-100: 3.8 Seconds Top speed is limited to 250km/hr  Supports upto Level-3 charging : 250KW/hr Will be sharing more information on Tesla Super chargers in the upcoming posts  
      A day before the trip
       
      Planning:
      Road trips in electric cars need some planning when compared to traditional(ICE) cars. 
       
      STEP 1: 
      You can use Tesla website to plan your trip, Select the car that you are planning to take on a drive Check out the website for fun : https://www.tesla.com/trips SF to LA has close to 10+ Tesla super chargers(Distance : 600+ kilometers)
       
      STEP 2: 
      Calculate total charging time required, you can check Tesla website to understand your trip plan Total charging time required on a 616 kilometers trip is 55 minutes Details given above are in ideal conditions: 90% charge before you start, follow speed limits, no opposite wind, no cold weather(below 0C), no snow storm etc In real world, range varies, this is similar to our ARAI mileage Tesla calculates/displays range based on EPA(ARAI), add 15~20% range error All the Tesla Chargers are located close to some of the best food courts/restrooms  Total saving for the trip when compared with gas cars is 52$
