Note: Lockdown is over not the Pandemic. We request travelers to follow all safety measures.

 

We have taken at most care like,

-          Used personal car for all drive.

-          Carried homemade food and water during all travel.

-          Used face mask and sanitizers wherever required.

-          Avoided crowded places.

 

My companion in travel.

-       Car Baleno Zeta CVT – reliable partner.

-       Smartphone Poco f1 – all the photos were taken with it.

 

Difficulty level:

-       No problem for elders and kids.

-       During rain area becomes slippery. So be careful.

 

Road conditions:

-       Roads are good for khadakwasla dam.

-       10 km stretch near to Panshet dam is bit bad, need careful driving during rain.

-       There are hotels available in route to panshet dam. One can enjoy boating near to panshet dam

 

Best time to visit:

-       The monsoon (Jul-Sept) 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.

*Main entry to the dam is closed due to Covid19. One can access the backwater and it is very scenic.

 

Khadakwasla dam was closed because of Covid19 and police restricted tourist entry. Hence not able to explore it. But route to panshet dam was scenic and I enjoyed it.

This was completely solo trip as home minister was busy with Dussera preparation.

      Hyderabad to Hamsaladeevi Beach - A hidden Paradise
       
      After a long wait for the December trip, we kick started our vacation to the most beautiful Hamsaladeevi beach located in the Krishna district, Andhra Pradesh.
       
      Usually many of them skip this place due to lack of accommodation, but you will find a decent stay in Vijayawada which is around 80 kms approximately from Hamsaladeevi. It is definitely worth travelling so far to see the beauty of this Sagara Sangamam, where river Krishna meets the Bay of Bengal.
       
      We started at an early hour from Hyderabad and reached Vijayawada by 10 AM and checked into the OYO hotel. There are no food joints available at Hamsaladeevi beach so we packed the lunch from the hotel and headed out. Vijayawada to Hamsaladeevi drive took us 3 hours with some breaks.
       
      Hamsaladeevi village is 24 kms away from Avanigadda and we reached Hamsaladeevi by 3 PM. After a long drive from Hyderabad, there was an adrenaline rush gushing out to see this most beautiful place and couldn't wait to snap the sandy beach and the 'river-beach' meeting point. This point is 2 km away from the beach (From Hamsaladeevi village, beach is 4 kms) and we drove our car on the beach side shore to the port to see the confluence.

       
      Distance : 376 km
      Ride: Honda City
      Fuel : Petrol
      Mileage : 15 kmpl
      Hotel : OYO rooms (2000/- per night)
       
      Best Route 2016
      Hyderabad --> Suryapet --> Vijayawada -->Pedapulipaka --> Madduru --> Thotlavalluru --> Nimmagadda --> Avanigadda --> Nagayalanka --> Chodavaram --> Hamsaladeevi Beach
       
      Note: Don't take any diversions from the mentioned route else you might end up between bad conditioned roads and longer distances as you pass
