We will be providing a tent to everybody on twin sharing basis or on triple sharing basis. Please do carry your own inner linings for the tent such as bed sheets or pillows or quilts or sleeping bags and not to forget the dinner sets :) And if you are willing to carry your own tents, you can still do that.

Hey guys, after listening to the news about boats being banned around Nagarjunasagar since the last weekend, we have contacted them and came to know that all the boats in that region are strictly prohibited from taking part in any activity until their surveillance is done. As this information has reached us directly from our boarding point, we are breaking down this trip at the moment as we lack in the means of transport to reach the island.
We shall plan this trip soon once things settle down. All the transactions being made will be redirected to the same number.

It has been a great drive meet and loud shout to all the members who attended this meet up. Best part of this drive is the most energetic and always enthusiastic crew. :)

It was wonderful meeting  @sbhamidi @Sainath @Mahendra @neerjanath @kaustav @amruth @venu for the first time.

Though we reached up the hill late after a hectic trek through the thorny bushes under the night sky, I am sure it must have been a blissful moment by the time we reached the top to pitch up our tents.

Knowing some of the interesting facts about the night sky has always been exciting and all the thanks to dheeraj for making it more enthralling by giving us a closer view through the telescope. All the talks about cars, camping spots and the stars besides dinner & campfire was quite an exciting experience. The kids Sreshta & Arnav and not to forget the first pet of the crew 'Heidi' were very energetic and cheerful until we bid a bye. The morning sunrise view and chai followed by a dip in the reservoir has closed the event successfully before we drove back to our base :D

 

I am sharing a few pictures taken from my mobile :) 

 

As we started our boat ride from the base towards the so called Mysterious island.

The boat ride was fun with these cheerful souls.

The sky got darker by the time we reached the Island.

Probably the most grained out picture of the early morning sunrise captured on my mobile.

The sun shone brighter by the time we trekked down the hill and reached the reservoir bank to drive back to Hyderabad

    • Hyderabad to Hamsaladeevi Beach - A hidden paradise, Andhra Pradesh
      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
