Bhuvanagiri

Bhongir, Bhongiri or Bhuvanagiri is a town.It is 48 km from Hyderabad. Bhongir is famous for its fort, which became prominent during the rule of the Kakatiyas.

This name gradually became Bhuvanagiri and subsequently Bhongir. According to legend, there once was an underground corridor connecting Bhongir Fort to Golconda Fort.

    Indeed another memorable trekking exprience at the historic town of Bhongir. We started with a warmup, got on to the uphill mode in a jiffy and kept up the tempo till we reach the peak of the old fort which was quite lively & spirited walk all the way. We had a quick round of introduction ...nibbled around with the snacks carried ... followed by a photo session.
    Started the downhill on a different route in about 40 minutes & stopped by at the midway to witness a mirror rock & a path to trek along. Was fun to hang around click some pictures and take the downhill path..cant miss out to mention about the breakfast @ hotel Rivera...my personal fav out of all the items was Vada sambar :)..was a short and nice little drive along the available greenery on the outskirts of East of Hyderabad.
    Special thanks to Vishwam..SriSan & Pradeep who were always with us & guided us throughout..Three Cheers to all !!
