Day-1, Morning 7.00AM. Started from Hyderabad for a long drive to Srisailam .All set for srisailam, Some few new faces as well, all of us got into spanking tata winger with a singh is king(Car Pilot). As we had done our home work about the roads we had some idea where and how to reach, but the journey to the place is awesome. Considering this we were all ready to have as many pit stops as we would want but we dint take many pit stops. First pit-stop was for refueling, not for the taxi, but for its occupants. We had gossiping amongst us and some namakarans as well like batmanbehenji, cockroach , crocodile,in our journey.
Next stop was the best part of the trip – Mallelatheertham Waterfalls, Paused our journey for hours in waterfalls. The falls is about 50-60 kms before Srisailam and only a board announces that you need to take a left and drive for around 8-9 kms on a kachcha road to reach the Mallela Theertham Waterfalls. The back-breaking 8 km drive and the 350 steps descent is totally worth the effort. This is not the best falls I have seen, since it was a long time I saw the falls so it was good but not really best for me because I am from coastal belt of Karnataka. But the water was cold enough to make us chillax!!. At the waterfalls please be careful about belongings since we have lots of ancestors( Monkeys) around.
After Spending 2-3 hrs in waterfalls we resumed our journey towards
srisailam, but tiredness and hungriness made us fall asleep automatically for sometime.
By the time we reached srisailam it was around 3.30pm “Paet Main Khide Khelne
Lage the”. Finally we found a restaurant for lunch and luckily it was a full
meal which is good for people like me who eat more. After that we booked
rooms for staying there and freshen up and relaxed also. Evening we headed to
temple, had very good darshana as well since it was Saturday as well as some
auspicious day we had to wait in long “Q” but “kuch pane ke liye kuch khona
padtha hai”. The gang was totally tired and again we headed to hotel for
dinner. After that we headed directly towards room but plan was to go to dam
since in night it will be mesmerizing.
Day-2, Next day morning we thought that at least we should
leave room by 7.30AM but couldn’t by avoidable reasonz!! ;). Straight Away after
having breakfast we headed to Akkamahadevi caves to reach we had to take Rope
Way to Patal Ganga as well as Boating in Krishna River. After more than 1hr
approx in boat with lots of photo sessions and fun we reached banks of Krishna
River. Must say the sceneries while boating was damn good with cool breeze,
clean water and tress around. From the
banks of river we had to walk for 10 mins to reach the doors of caves. We did
stomach loading with water which was available from the shop available in the
