The above pictures are clicked on the way to Ananthgiri hills. It is around 90 kms from Hyderabad and takes maximum 2 hours one way, even if you are driving at a speed of 60km/hr. Route taken -- gachibowli -> Chevella -> Vikarabad - Ananthgiri.
Which is the best time to visit?
Rainy season, of course. What's better than the 'rain drops falling on your head' or cool breeze brushing against your face! You can try winters as well but summers (or Feb to June) is a strict no. Yes Feb is almost summers in HYD.
We started at 9am, reached at around 11 am, finished lunch by 2 and were back by 4 pm. ( All of this along with 4 stops in between to click pictures). You can start earlier if you'd like to do a lot of sight seeing in and around Ananthgiri.
How to travel?
You can either hire a cab or take your own car, or just go on bikes (do remember to carry your raincoats).
Do you have options to eat on the way?
Not many (good ones). There are a few after you cross chavella where you can stop by for chai. I'd suggest carry some snacks along!
Once you reach there, where to go?
We headed straight to the view point (see the pictures below) unless you want to explore temples and everything that's around Ananthgiri.
