Hi @Sridhar Tandra,

 

This place looks perfect and new for a small team outing activity which I'm planning to organise this month. Thanks for sharing this information. Could you please share the contact number if any? That would be of great help. Thank you :)

"The Mayuri Forest Park / Mayuri Ecopark".

 

May be we can plan this once the monsoon kicks in.
I think it is better to avoid this place during summer?

Hyderabad: In its attempt to make people aware of the scenic beauties and hidden tourist hotspots, the State Forest Department on Friday introduced special eco-tourism packages in Jayashankar Bhupalpally district, a press release said.

The Forest Department has come out with three packages for nature lovers in order to showcase places like Eturunagaram Wildlife Sanctuary, Laknavaram lake, Bogatha Waterfalls, Sammakka Saralamma Jatara area, Kaleshwaram temple and Prathapagiri Kota in the district.
The special package of Rs 2,000 per tourist will cover tourist attractions like cycling, trekking, primitive human caves, blackberry island, Kondaveeti view point along with food and guide facilities.

Another package worth Rs 2,000 offers facilities like stay in a tent, camp fire, boating, island visit, trekking, journey on a bullock cart and even a lake view safari.

Keeping in mind the need of adventure seekers, Forest officials are also offering rock climbing, rappelling, trekking and bouldering activities, as part of the third package.

Kohir hills is another place I've heard of around Hyderabad which is unexplored. Please share a link if there is any in this forum. TIA

 

Do check out the links below. Kohir hills and Gottamgutta are a few places where you can drive to for an early morning exploration drive. Absollutely less crowded or not crowded at all. Try not to grab much attention at the villagers you pass by as it might lead to some chaos or unnecessary disturbances.

No dropped the plan for this weekend.
 
I may drive down to Gandikota, but due to high temperatures, I avoided the drive.
May be after the festival, i will drive down. 

Last weekend (sat and yesterday) went to Dandeli and did river rafting , zip line , kayaking etc in river Kali.
I went with a team on train/bus.
Everyone has amazing experience with these water sports. You can also do forest safari. But it's not that popular .
Any one can easily visit this place when you drive to Goa. Otherwise it's a good weekend destination drive to rejoice yourself....

 

We stayed in a farmhouse - tents...food is also good...

How have you reached Dandeli from Hubli? Was a cab arranged by the farm owner ?

Yes. He arranged to and fro but paid service. Also boating and jaccuzi bath are complementary.
We paid for travel to river rafting place and water sports..

Distance :

172 Kilometres to Jurala Project. Approx

Route : 

Hyderabad --> Jadcherla --> Beechupalli ---> Gadwal---->Jurala project ----Atmakur-----Hyderabad

Road condition :

Excellent

Restaurants :

You can find many on Bangalore highway but once you divert, you cannot find anything.

 

Recently went a day trip to Jurala project and afterwards to Beechupally Hanuman temple located nearby river, makes an excellent scenic location. especially in the evenings. Sharing some pics.

 

Nothing much to do in Jurala project except driving down the village roads and enjoying the scenery at the waterfront. But the drive is worth it. beware of the monkeys at Hanuman temple, after all its their area :)

Hi All,

I just want to confirm on the permission part for camping at Koil Sagar. Are there any permissions required before going there? Please let us know. Thanks in advance

 

Even though it is a late reply. 
Due to COVID, complete camping setup is removed and many new resorts are coming up in Gandikota.

    • 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$

    • New e-Pass Requirements by States (March 2021 onwards)
      Hi all,
      I wanted to create the list of states re-imposing e-pass requirements to travel, including  by road.
      Here's what I found. Please add to the list and also once it is lifted, please update the thread.
      I hope it will be helpful
       
      Tamil Nadu
      Dated 9-Mar-2021
      All passengers coming by road and by flight to Tamil Nadu need an e-pass, the state government has decided, in a slew of new rules for domestic and international passengers coming to the state. All passengers from states, except Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka and Puducherry, need an e-pass to enter the state.
