The determination for the first light took over our sleep and with great difficulty we got up around 6. We were not sure where to go tho, we didn't have any clue about the local sceneries. So we just went to the building top and found few dark clouds passing by a range of hills, hence we just drove in that direction. After asking a few locals, we reached a quite lovely location (location #1) overlooking the hills as the clouds slowly rolled over them. We spent nearly a hour and a half in that location. That place was so serene, I could have stayed for hours just staring at those mountains! Later we got back to the hotel quick as we had to check out by 10, so took a bath and got ready in an hour and we left the hotel. We were searching for some hotel to eat breakfast but couldn't find any proper ones. Later we just entered a tiny tiffin shop and took a few quick bites, food wasn't really that good. Breakfast was one problem we faced at Araku, couldn't find any proper tiffin shop so gotta manage with that or maybe you can go to the Haritha hotel and have a breakfast, this is something we could have done but didn't think of and didn't have time as well. As we were heading towards the Araku Valley view point, we found location #2 on the way. There were few hills in a row and the light was falling through the clouds, which in a way made them look really interesting. We spent another 30-45 minutes over there and headed towards view point. The view point wasn't that interesting (from a photography perspective) and there were a lot of people and stalls. At the side hot bamboo chicken was being sold over there, so we got two bamboo's full of chicken and decided to eat later (which wasn't really that great). Later as we were moving on, we found Katiki Waterfalls for which we would have to travel about another 1km away from the main road, but as the locals said that there wasn't much water, we left. We stopped at that point and left back towards Hyderabad through Paderu, Lambasingi and this is where it got interesting. As we had to cover a lot, we didn't have lunch and left for Paderu. Drive to Paderu was one of the best ones, if not the best! Some good music and company along with perfect climate and pretty good road, the drive was really satisfying and pleasurable! As we crossed Paderu and were close to Lambasingi, we found a board pointing towards a waterfall named "Kothapalli Waterfalls". We were curious and felt that we should visit it, as we didn't wanna miss anything on the way. As we were close by we could hear the water flowing with a rush, we did get a bit excited. As we entered inside, it was pretty good actually! We could see the mountains far away while the clouds/fog pass by them and waterfall flowing in the foreground, but before we could take our cameras out it started raining. Hence we went out searching for some shade so that our gear doesn't get wet and guess what! We found "Araku Coffee Shop" ! The three of us sat down, sipped a delicious cup of coffee while we enjoyed the rain. These are the kind of moments which make a trip memorable to me. As soon as the rain reduced a bit, we put on our jackets covering the cameras and got out in the rain. We spent nearly 45-60 minutes over there and got a few good shots (and I couldn't get the shot I wanted of the mountains being half covered by the clouds with the waterfalls in the foreground as the mountains weren't visible due to the fog :/). It was around 5 that we got out of there, safe to say we were totally drenched and happy that our cameras were still working. Later as we were passing by the Lambasingi road, we found a few good spots to take photos, so we got out in the rain again a couple more times to get some interesting shots (found two young boys with an umbrella walking by foggy mountains! Pic below ⬇️) .We drove around Lambasingi as we were already a bit late and didn't wanna spend another day anywhere else. We were hungry as we had only a dosa until then, but couldn't find any place to eat for around 5-6 hours. Later our tyre got punctured around 11 PM, hence it took another 30-40 minutes to set the jack and fix stepney. Finally we were on the road again.
