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?

    • 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.
       
      Some of the important facts about Ranganaya 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. Provides irrigation

    • 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)
