Gandikota, I am not very sure, how many of you have heard about this place before. I heard about this place last year from one of my friend, who is from Andhra Pradesh and showed me some images, 12th century fort overlooking a gorge. I was stunned to see those images and this place was in my bucket list for long time. Thought of exploring this place last year but somehow plan didnot work.
But as usual, if something is in my bucket list, then its not going to take more time. This time I got opportunity to visit the place with members of Team Pentacle. It was weekend outing, 3 cars and 11 members, we all started at Friday night.
There are actually three routes to reach Gandikota, we took shortest, 281 km. Road condition was mostly excellent, first 100 km NH7 Bangalore-Hyderabad highway and then next 100 km was Hindpur-Kadari state highway. After Muddanur town, next 40 km road to Gandikota is isolated and passes through barren land.
