Gandikota Tourism & Travel Guide

Trips and Itineraries for Gandikota

We thought of visiting Gandikota because of The fort of Gandikota acquired its name due to the 'gorge' (in Telugu it is called 'gandi'), formed between the Erramala range of hills, also known as Gandikota hills and the river Pennar that flows at its foot, reducing its width to a mere 300 ft (see the river images below)....

Gandikota, Andhra Pradesh 516434, India
The major attraction is Gorge View Point, Once you reach here and see it, you will realize why its getting compared with Grand Canyon. Surrounded by a deep valley, impassable hills, massive boulders of red granite and the river Pennar that flows below on the west and northern sides.From Jama Masjid, once we started walking towards view point, we did not realise that there is something magnificent stored for us, Once we reached at the very end of the chasm, it was wow feeling and we all said here is something magnificent. The view, surrounding, excellent.

About Gandikota

'Gandikota ?!?!?!!? What is that'.This was the first reaction my wife put across when I told her of a weekend trek I had booked. 'You know I will not be able to click Ganesh Chaturthi images in Mumbai because of your stupid idea'.My initial excitement turned into a small shrill of despair as I realized it was Ganesha chaturthi weekend that I had booked this trek for. 'Incoming religious stares' I thought. None the less, we both decided to go ahead with it.A friend also decided to join us at last minute making us feel less guilty of missing out on Ganesha Chaturthi celebrations (distribution of the burden)We booked our trek through a fantastic group called - Travel Trikon. Though the trek and journey is self manageable, the overall experience suggested by them was something which led us to book this trek. (PS: Please note I am not affiliated to Travel Trikon or any other travel groups and this is not a promotional post...though I would consider this an honor if this is considered as one).So on Saturday evening we boarded the Chennaaiii Expressss....ahem... Chennai Express from Pune station for an overnight journey towards Muddanuru StationPosing in front of Chennai Express
