Ahobilam:

There are nine temples around the Nallamala Forest range, and in terms of sculpture and architecture all these nine temples stands to be an ultimate testament for the ancient sthapathis in planning and sculpting these temples. A few temples can be reached through trekking. Some temples are inside the cave. Some temples are very difficult to trek to. The paths take us through some scenic and beautiful Nalamalla forest.

    Hi Frends,
    This was my first trek. I found GHAC recently and Im quite impressed by this trekking experience which only encouraged me to keep doing more and more. Manideep and Prasad took lot of pain in making each one of us feel comfortable with the accomodation and motivating people who were slow and also by arranging some tasty local variety food. It was all like a treat. Thanks to each and every one who made my first trek so memorable especially to the organizers. You were so supportive and sportive all the way through.
    Love to meet you guys again.The experience I had is simply awesome.

    I knew I was going on a trek, I was well informed through mails and phone calls by the organisers what to carry, what not. What to expect and how it is going to be.

    Ahobilam has some beautiful trails and I would suggest it to others as well. Organisers did a good job, one with the lead pack and the other with the slowest one. Medicines and fluids (medical) were provided as well.

    I cannot expect anything better from GHAC while on an adventure trek! Thanks GHAC.

    • Lakshmi K.

      Most importantly the stories (experiences) that we tell each other while on treks are the best part. (Apart from enjoying the beauty of nature) Looking forward for more treks.

    Ahobilam was in my list of to-do treks from quite a long time but waiting for the right opportunity as many told about the inconveniences of accommodation, food, long trekking distance etc., I could make it this time with good gang of guys around making it memorable. Thanks to organizers. I had been to many treks and trips but never had the luxury of staying in Air Conditioned accommodation after the long day tiring trek and tasting the rural food. I am happy that we could cover all the places as planned even in the intense sun and heat reflecting rocks. The geography of Ahobilam is such that we can’t stay anywhere up hill and have to come back to the place we started making us more tired as in many treks we stayed up hill and only to descend on the next day. Since, it was not any package trip little hiccups are common. Over all it was an exciting trip and team spirit was excellent in covering all places well ahead of time to reach Allagadda!

    • Pavan

      In continuation to the above, I also liked the kind nature of team members in getting food parcel to others which is highly uncommon and can't be expected when the hotel is just nearby.

    Trek was very exiting but there was lot of variation in plan and execution and also lack of leadership, its easy to say that trek was organised very well but we are forgetting moments when there was no one to guide us which way should we choose in mid of forest. Its God's blessings that everything turned up nice otherwise anything could have happened as whole team was trekking in intense sun with few oily dosas only and could get lunch only at end of day after whole trek. I feel it Narshima God has only saved us and things ended well but there's lot to learn and improve so that similar mistakd do not happen again.

    • Manideep K

      We can't satisfy everyone. Living life trying to please everyone is not only a daunting task, but is nearly impossible to do and remain healthy Of course we want to make other people happy but it cannot be at our own expense. If you think you can do it better at organising, become a leader and prove your mettle before you criticise others. Problems come when you didn't properly ready my emails or meetup page. Anyhow thanks for your feedback. You can also submit your feedback to the club.

      By the way next time I'll make sure that I can arrange a buffet at the top of the Peak

    I extend my thanks to whole team for support they offered especially to Naveen,Denial,Satyam without their help I would not have completed trek

  • Manideep K

    Had another amazing and awesome trip. Although most of them are first timers Every one did a great job. Keep up the spirit guys. Though we faced some problems at the beginning due to increase in fare for bus tickets. Everything was executed Flawlessly (I hope majority of you guys agree with me.) good to see everyone is so enthusiastic and ever willing to share responsibilities. who ever said no pains no gains sure wasn’t kidding. The view from the ugra stambham was awesome. Trekking under a scorching sun was a bit challenging for everyone. I'm extremely happy that almost everyone visited all the 9 temples. My co host Prasad did a fantastic job in organising this trek without which this wouldn't have been possible. I'd also like to thank Siri who patiently answered all my questions and has been a constant support for me. Thanks a lot to Daniel n naveen in helping us with the accounts. A special thanks to each and everyone of you in making this trip funfilled and memorable for lifetime
