    It was my first trip with this group and I thoroughly enjoyed it. The company was enthusiastic and the trip was adventurous. The campfire, the night stay at the haunted palace and the walk along the nizam sagar dam were totally great.

    Looking forward to be a part of many more such trips :)

    Another Adventurous Trek out in the wild, managed to visit all places as per plan pocharam wildlife sanctuary, medak church, medak fort, nizam sagar, singur/manjeera lake. Got some good long insights on wildlife conservation from the DFO medak who allowed us to trek in the pocharam sanctuary. at night we were uninvited nocturnal guests of his highness at the haunted Hunting Haveli of the Nizam at the pocharam lake, with all the ghosts stories going out in the night and the shrieks of a woman, crying of a baby, it was real Shhhh Koi Hai..... Nizamsagar was huge and big with all the fish, crabs and water snakes. Made it to the singur damn in the night and got lost trying to find the way, amazing trip. looking forward to more such adventurous trip

    Good group to hang out with, lots of fun. The second day turned out better than the first, thanks to a low start coz of a certain DFO! The Medak fort and the Nizam Sagar lake were the best part. Congratulations to the organizers on yet another successful trek :)

    Our itinerary was supposed to be cut because of the Telangana tensions, but thanks to the organisers we managed to visit almost all things that we planned. Team was better this time with timings. Bouldering and swimming at Nizam Sagar was awesome. Getting lost in jungle was nice :) I was actually looking forward to fuel tank getting empty ;) and we spending another night in the wilderness. But what can I do, bad luck prevailed ;)

    An amazing weekend out of the city typically when in the city there would have been nothing to do due to the political tension prevailing. Nevertheless, had fun to the core. Most memorable times were spending the night at a spooky bungalow, breakfast/lunch with Mr Ashok kumar, with keku(croco)dile at the nizamsagar, dumb charades all the way and yes.... when the bus lost the way! Thank you all for your cooperation and making this trek a successful one.
