    Diyanat took good care of us and kept all the group together. We had a very good trek and had lot of fun. Learned some good lessons for the future (my shoe gave up on me, with both soles completely coming off).

    Truly Adventures: Never knew so much greenery close to Hyderabad, it was a good forest trek, unfortunate for those who missed expecting rain, it was a pleasant weather the forest was a curious mix of trees, grass and spotted with rocks in between we had a glimpse of Pea Hen, Deer, Rabbit, Owl and lots of butterflies. The highlight was walking for two hours and coming back to other side of the same place. Over all it was memorable experience and not to forget the orange berries we ate (guys I discovered that if you break the seed inside their is ground nut like seed which can be eaten). It was a wonderful company all of them shown lot enthusiasm and endurance to walk around 14km, Thanks Diyanant for organizing this trek next time we may explore deeper into the forest and may try night camping also.

    It was really a nice exp. and one thing which we could not forget is the way we lost in the jungle and came to the same point for walking for about 6 kms from where we started after lunch. Over all it was a nice exp, with lush green on the way and in the forest and Chandra's never give up attitude for completion and lost of butterflies. And the important thing which cannot be forgotten is an insect moving a huge ball of dung which is more then it size by around 15-20 times.
