Night : We boarded into Kachiguda-Kakinada Port Special train from Kachiguda railway station at 19:45 PM. There are many biriyani places nearby, so you can pack up your dinner for night. You can also order food in train, but you may not get many options. So once dinner is sorted, the journey seems sorted.10/11/2018 :
I left Kachiguda Railway Station (Hyderabad) at 07.45 AM by Tungabhadra Express which starts from Secunderabad Railway Station at 07.30 AM in the morning and you reach Kurnool at 12.45 PM. I went straight to my friend’s house for lunch and our trip to the mountain was at 02.00 PM. In case, you don’t know anybody in Kurnool, you can have your lunch at Hotel Raj Vihar which has a decent restaurant. You can order for a South Indian Thali, which will not only satiate your hunger, but also satisfy your taste buds. The puris served with the thali are yummy. And you can end up with a sweet. A banana and Sweet Pan completes the meal, but that's not part of the thali. You have pan kiosks outside the Hotel.
Please board auto rickshaws that follow the metre system.
