    I really missed out the event... will be waiting for second trip.
    Also let me know , if we can reach kambalpally by our own cars ? or we need to prefer public transport

    September 30, 2013

    • Rama R.

      Kambalapally is very sensitive area and trek towards island looks interesting but is very confusing and last year 2 inexperienced trekkers tried to explore the place and got lost in the forest and police had to go on search for several hours to trace them.

      Advised not to go without proper navigation skills and GHAC is not responsible for any such incidents.

    Awesomeness redefined! Amazing views while on 3+ hours boating.. Moonlight dinner.. Biryani, steamed fish and chicken curry topped with moon rise and shooting star feel blessed..

    Experiencing the horrifying sound and the hurtling wind on the top of Island while sleeping on the top of Island was another very different experience.. Morning amazing views and photography, just made another best Sunday morning in my life.. Scrambling up to base village is my all-time favorite and appreciate everyone for making it on time without any difficulties.. exploring the route back to base village through forest is another experience and sure new people would get lost in forest.. Brunch at base village yummy and priceless!

    Special thanks to Faisal, Chandu & Gouse for helping with tents & tarps logistics and making the delicious dinner. Thanks to one and all for the responsibility they have shown on the trek.. totally luv’d the team.. hope to see you all soon..!

    It was a very nice experience to spend a full moon night at Mysterious island. 3 hour Boat ride, Camping at top of the hill and most beautiful part was we followed different Path while returning that kept us busy in guessing what's next. Brunch at village had it's own flavour, liked it.
    thank you Ram raju, gaus, Faizal, Chandu & friends for the such a nice experience.
    See ya soon..

    I am interested but can any one guide me how I can reach MGBS by 4:30AM, I live in Nallagandla/Gachibowli. I don't have bike, don't want to park my car at MGBS for 2 days? (is it safe?) anyone going from this area on bike who can pick me up?
    Thanks,
    Ravi

    September 18, 2013

    • Rama R.

      Ravi, parking is at members risk. However, I too park my bike in MGBS.. other option is try to book a cab and pool with members who are coming in same direction.

      September 18, 2013

  • Rama R.

    Hi Guys.. I have moved everyone to waiting list.. whoever confirms the payment in comments will be moved to going list..

    To ensure a safe and smooth trek, I might not take few guys for this trek based on their past meetups. Whoever is not taken should not feel bad however this event will be repeated again.
