While searching for some off-beat destination from Chennai, I stumbled upon a place called Belum caves and Gandikota fort. I surfed lot of blogs and travel websites to know about this place and how to reach it from Chennai. Most of the blogs were from either Bangalore or Hyderabad but very few from Chennai.
With very little information available on internet and an urge to travel, I and my friend Roney Mathew decided to explore these places.
Two guys, two bikes and 330km road. We started from Arakkonam in early morning around 4 am. The route we took was Arakkonam-Tirupati-Rajampet-Kadapa-Jammalamadugu-Belum/Gandikota. We reached Jammalamadugu by 12 pm with few pit-stops.
While travelling from Chennai, start as early as possible and try to cover as much as distance possible in morning because the when the sun grows bigger it becomes difficult to ride in the scorching heat.
For the breakfast, don't spend too much time in searching for any hotels or restaurants as we did. We almost spent close to an hour for the same. Instead there is an AP Govt. Hotel on the highway. Watch for it on your right hand side while going from Chennai.
