Boat Ride to Papikondalu and Night Stay in Bamboo Huts

Needs a location


(For All Age groups) Papikondalu is also known as Papi hills which are situated in the river Godavari in Andhra Pradesh. According to our fore fathers sayings the name Papikondalu is the word from a Telugu word called (Papidikondalu), because when we view the holy river Godavari from the top of a mountain it looks like a parting in the hair (thala lo papidi) of a woman. But according to history when the great Saptarishis bought Pathala ganga down, the king of an evil kingdom named (Papi) stopped the flow of Ganga. Then the saptarishis requested the king "papi" to give way. He gave a small space to continue the flow of water. That’s the reason Papikondalu are so close to each other. Papikondalu is going to be "extinct" shortly, due to the construction of dam under the "Polavaram project”. Papikondalu are three in number, situated like a wall in the midst of river Godavari. In this journey we cover many famous places like Gandi Pochamma temple, Perantalapalli, Ramakrishna Muni Vatika (Ashramam) and Veereswara Swamy Temple. We have lots of entertainment like games, songs, dances with professional and novice dancers, etc. in our boat in this tour. BAMBOO HUTS Night stay is in Bamboo huts. A different type of stay which we should all experience. Bamboo huts have a beautiful scenic view because they are situated on a small hill. Here these cottages are situated near the forest and provide ample security and connection with nature. Trekking, water falls, campfire, outdoor games are the other attractions here. This is the best hang out place for people who want to stay out from concrete life for a day or two and a peaceful place to stay in nature.
