Exploratory Trekking @ Charikonda - V 2.0

Meeting point: Rethifile Bus Stop, Secunderabad @ 6.30 AM sharp

Genre: Exploratory

Grade: Medium

For: Above 18 yrs whoever has a Scrambling experience can join
Trek Duration: 7-8 hrs
Distance: 60 kms From Hyderabad
Cost: Rs 500 per person for travel expenses (Extra amount will be refunded)

Charikonda is a village in Amangal mandal of Mahbubnagar. The granite hills around this small village rise steeply to 100m from ground level near Charikonda. The more interesting part though is the thick vegetation that extends to its west for over 12 km. The western border of these hills is the famous Maisigandi Maisamma temple of Kadthal. A small Rama temple is located on a hillock near Govindayapally.

The target is to explore as much as possible in the hills near Charikonda. The terrain contains lots of thorns, so be prepared for it. We might be trekking under the hot sun which will make the trek even more difficult. We will be scrambling among the rocks too.

Note: Most of us may not be serious trekkers but all of us have equal responsibility in protecting our beloved earth. GHAC earnestly requests all its members to be socially responsible whilst the treks and avoid any littering, shouting when in wild or causing anything that would disturb the normal ecology. Try to avoid plastics as much as possible.

This trek is exploratory. Last time we explored a good deal. This time we'll be continuing that exploration. Be prepared for all from everything to nothing.

Selection is based upon organizer's discretion. Place yourself in the waiting list to start with. No guests allowed. Answer all the questions.

No shows will be taken very seriously. Last evening dropouts will be treated as no shows.

This is not a luxury trip. You are responsible for yourself. Travel and trek may be harsh and uncomfortable at times.

    I always wanted to come back to this place my first experience here was wonderful despite harsh weather conditions last time. This time it was nice to start where we ended the trek, we explored quite a bit good to see the pond and the lake with so much water this place is not the same after monsoon. Good trek November is the ideal time. I don’t mind coming here again. Thanks Renuka.
