I moved to Hyderabad a few months back from Bangalore. I was not so happy, by listening from People that there are not much places to explore/adventure near to Hyderabad on weekend trip.

On the way we decided to visit Belum Cave around 40 KM before Gandikota. Its a 1.5 KM long cave.we spend 1 hour out there. There was very less oxygen in the middle of the cave but sufficient enough to breath.

We took a break there to enjoy the view. When we looked down to the River and the Grass. We ask each other "Dude, we should trek down to the river" And the answer was " LETS GO, Find a way"

We trek down the river through a narrow escape which was at 50 Degree angle slope. At beginning we though its easy. as we go down 100 meter it was very hard Trail. Because of your body balance and rocks were sliding.
