Myself, Ravi, Ashwin and Omkar have decided to go an quick drive. 
We did some research on the locations that are near to Gachibowli and started around 4PM.
We took a short quick break at the movie towers and drove down till Shankarpally.

Road condition is average as a 4-lane drive way is under construction.

We reached Shankarpally by 5 PM by taking longer routes and explored the interiors of these villages.

The approach road was very bad and we were disappointed. Once we reached the destination, We found the place with full of slush. Also, the road was very slippery.

We started searching for other approach roads and finally managed to find one.

We stopped and checked the route by foot and proceeded further. Chances of getting stuck are very high at this place. Take at least two cars.

Omkar decided to scrape the mud due to less traction. As soon as we drove 100 meters ahead, the mud was back on to the tires.

Question from Ravi
Why can't they put a single wire instead of bunch of wires?
Answer from Omkar
Difference between a 2-lane and 6-lane road. Petrol-head?

This place looks entirely like a new location to me. I have been there during April this year and found just dried grass. Thanks to the monsoon rains. Great share @Ranger

      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
