Details WHERE : Gandikota CATEGORY : Trek + rappelling + Camping + Kayaking GRADE : Easy in terms of Trek DURATION : 2 days(2 nights journey, 1 night stay) Event Cost : 6200/- INR ABOUT PLACE : Gandikota, also known as GRAND CANYON OF INDIA is a fort built in 12th century with red granite stones. The fort is protected by a deep gorge on one side, several hundred meters long and deep, with gigantic boulders scattered all around. Camping under the stars here would be a memorable night..! There are two ancient temples and a masjid in this fort which are in ruins due to lack of preservation. Gandikota acquired its name from the picturesque gorge (called Gandi in Telugu) formed between the Erramalai hills, which are also called the Gandikota hills. A deep valley and impassable hills with massive boulders of red granite, reminding one of the Grand Canyon, surround the fort, situated amid wild forests. The gorge formation is such that the Pennar river flows about 90 metres below on the western and northern sides and is said to have offered strong natural defense to the Kakatiya, Vijayanagar and Qutub Shahi kings who ruled from the fort. From the top of the fort, you can have a breathtakingly panoramic view of the surrounding forests and valleys. Nearby, is the picturesque Mylavaram Dam which is a popular picnic spot because of the sparkling waters, lush trees and cool breeze, which make you want to stretch out and relax.
