Welcome to multi place adventure

Gnadikota the Indian grand canyon

yaganti caves and belum caves

do Kayaking and boating in rock gardens .......

Gandikota grand canyon :

Gandikota : Gandikota acquired its name from the picturesque gorge (called Gandi in Telugu) formed between the Erramalai hills, which are also called the Gandikota hills.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

A deep valley and impassable hills with massive boulders of red granite, reminding one of the Grand Canyon, surround the fort, situated amid wild forests. The gorge formation is such that the Pennar river flows about 90 metres below on the western and northern sides and is said to have offered strong natural defense to the Kakatiya, Vijayanagar and Qutub Shahi kings who ruled from the fort.

 

The Great Indian Canyon

The Mosque in Gandikota Fort

Belum caves :

Had Lewis Carroll penned his Alice?s Adventures in Wonderland in India, he may have found inspiration in Belum Caves. Falling through the cavern?s sinkhole, his heroine would have tumbled down a bizarre subterranean realm and found adventures galore.



Famous for their stalactite and stalagmite formations, Belum Caves, about 110 km from Kurnool town are the second longest natural caves in the country next only to Meghalaya caves.

When you drive into the entrance of the site that houses the caves, you might think you landed up in the wrong place. The vast expanse of flat land betrays the presence of these impressive caves right beneath you. When you climb down the first 20 metres, the magnificence of this natural wonder will blow you away. You get to walk around 1.5 kilometres of the well-lit caves and even dip your foot in the Patala Ganga (underground Ganges), a natural perennial stream that flows through the caves.


yaganti

rock gardens  Boating and caving ... :

 

A miniature Grand Canyon of sorts, Oravakallu is an interesting landscape of majestic rock formations around a long winding water body.

This natural architectural wonder makes for a great trek as you climb up the red rock formations of all shapes and sizes. After a tiring walk up to the highest point, you are rewarded with an amazing view of the water body set against the backdrop of gorgeous open spaces and clear blue skies (if you are lucky).

Located at just 25-odd kilometres from Kurnool, thisrock garden on NH 18, is easy to find.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Yaganti

Yaganti is famous for Sri Yagantiswamy Temple (also called Umamaheshwar Temple) dedicated to Lord Shiva, constructed in 15th century.


An amazing feature of this temple is its Pushkarini with very pure water. No one knows how the water flows in & out of Pushkarini in all the seasons. Devotees consider that a bath in the holy Pushkarini before visiting Shiva is highly beneficial.

It is proved that the Nandi idol in front of the temple is continuously increasing its size, at the rate of 1 inch per 20 years.

 

The place is renowned for caves like the Agastya Caves, Venkateswara Caves and Veera Brahmam Caves. One can enter the Agastya cave by climbing 120 steep steps while other two are easier to climb.

    Needlless to say how fearking awesome it was :).
    All the people in the group had some or the other thing unique about then .It was both a fun and learning experience .
    The cliff dive at rock gardens and that kayaking experience ,camping under the open sky next to lake were one of the coolest things I have done so far.

    And Gaurav bhai ,your gyan session was awesome :) . Hope to see you soon in another meetup .

    Gandikota and rock gardens feel certainly more grand than the pictures depict
    Would be nice to see some clean up drive by us at picturesque (but sad looking) Yaganti next time

    Great work organisers in ensuring everybody enjoyed despite the huge team...especially kayaking. Keep going
