It was the onset of winter in 2019. Winter in Hyderabad is really charming. You won't get tremendous, chilly, smoggy kinda winter here. Its generally cold in the mornings, warm in the afternoons and cool in the evenings. Perfect time to travel. As usual, both me and my wife were getting bored with our stressful office lives. So we figured out an weekend getaway!
For weekend getaways we generally don't plan any place beyond 250 km. The driving really takes a toll. We decided to visit and stay at Pakhal , Warangal. The distance from our home to our hotel, was 241 kms, and google maps predicted, 5 hours of driving time.One week before our travelling date, we booked our hotel. Its TSTDC Haritha Eco Tourism Resort,Pakhal. That's the only accommodation option over there.
We started the journey, on 7th December, 2019 (Saturday) morning at 6 am. Since check-in was around 12 noon, so more early start didn't make sense. So we were a group of 4 people and 2 cars. Its a couple group basically. Both me and Subhajit love driving, hence we take our own cars for most of the trips. So we took the Miyapur - Bachupally - ORR - (Hyderabad-Warangal) highway.
