Hyderabad to warangal one day trip

As many travelers already suggested to go to Warangal from Hyderabad in Monsoon season,I followed them. In the month of August 2016, we planned for warangal trip.The attractions were:

  1. Bhadrakali Temple
  2. Thousand Pillar Temple
  3. Warangal Fort
  4. Laknavaram Cheruvu
  5. Pakhal Lake
  6. Kakatiya Musical Garden
  7. Pakhal Wildlife Sanctuary
  8. Ramappa Lake

Let me give little introduction of warangal :
It is situated around 150 KM away from hyderabad. It is an important city with lots of industries coming in. The great kakatiya dynasty made it more beautiful. As they excelled in arts,you can find   lot of subjects with great piece of art.It is well connected from other cities of Telengana. Plenty of options to go to warangal.You have trains ,bus , ola,uber connecting warangal  from hyderabad.You will get lots of options to stay like hotels,stay in,paying guest etc.

The only point I want to make here that it is not a tourist city. Hence transportation options to the tourist spots are little less.Auto is the major mode of easy transport in this city. You can get lots of autos outside of the railway station or inside the city. But be prepare for negotiation for rate as you are an outsider.
Again please keep your expectations less as the service in the hotels are moderate.Do not take things for granted. Hanamkonda is a nice place to eat out and visit. road side food is tasty.

There are lot of political problems in the recent time. So you have to plan your route correctly.Keep 2/3 alternate options ready (just in case). The best time to visit warangal is OCT to DEC. Hence we choose August.If you are going in summer, You  need to carry extra water bottles and a sunscreen cream can save you from scorching heat of sun.

Lets come back to our journey:
There were two cars:

  1. Ford Figo Diesel
  2. Grand i10-Petrol

The travellers were:

  1. Animesh-Behind Ford
  2. Sourabh-Behind i10
  3. Devopriya
  4. Madhurima
  5. Anindita
  6. Moumi
  7. Amitda
  8. Riku

Car testing:
Next day, I reached out to my service adviser Quazi from fortune ford tollichowki. He heard my journey details and sent my car for inspection. Most importantly,he himself did this checking. He tested the wheels,tyres and brake condition. Tested the battery and all other necessary things, only a ford expert can understand.As ever, I trust this guy blindly. Most importantly, he never tried to snatch money from my pocket.He handed over the key with a smile and assured that my figo was ready for 650KM+ journey.  My ford was ready for a long journey.

Route:
Day-1:Hyderabad->Ghatkesar->Alair->Kazipet->Hanmakonda->Laknavaram Lake

Hyderabad to warangal one day trip

August brings a cool weather in hyderabad with lots of rain. Temperature starts dropping a bit. It gives a pleasure to drive in August in hyderabad and around of It. We planned a two day trip to warangal . Surprisingly, the weather was terrific no sun, quite cloudy, breezy, also a little cool which was a perfect recipe for a long drive. Even though we were all set for the long drive. It started at around 7:30 AM in the Saturday. We drove till ghatkeswar via outer ring road from TSPA and then took warangal highway. Toll costed- 70 Rs one-way. Road was excellent till bhangir. Then normal state highway started. So far I remember I got one more toll plaza in the entire route.

Post crossing bhongir, we stopped for breakfast. It was a fine hotel with an option to accept credit card. Then we drove to Kazipet. Stopped at a small tea stall for tea. Finally reached at Haritha just before reaching Laknavaram for lunch. Next 10 KM drive from main road to the lake was nice.Full of jungle and greenery.We checked in Laknavam Island hotel[Haritha]. We enjoyed hanging bridge and 3 times boat ride to the beautiful lake.

Haritha Hotel Review at Laknavaram:
This hotel is inside an island maintained by Telengana tourism.So you have to book that prior from their online portal.As it is maintained by govt, please don’t expect a warm welcome with welcome drinks. However the security will be helpful. They will carry your luggage till the rooms. The rooms will not be ready before hand. After you check in , cleanup activity starts. At least it happened to us.But after 15 minutes of waiting we got a decent clean bed,working AC,TV with Cable connection,a clean bathroom with geyser. We got 4 rooms ,facing the lake. It was nice to look at the lake.The immediate view from the hotel room was fabulous. There were 4-5 rooms with 2/3 guard, I suggest you to go in a gang. There is an option to bonfire but due to rain we could not opt for the activity. Also we did not have a singer and guitarist in our gang.(No offence to  Moumi)

They had two kind of fooding options..

  1. Room Service
  2. Cafeteria Service

As we were in a gang of 7 travelers,we preferred the second option.There were a lot of menus in the menu card.But very few were available.We selected from what were available for that day. Haritha hotel served snacks at around 5:30PM. It was awesome,less spicy.We ate a lot. Later at 9:30 PM they served the dinner. The cook was nice and did not understand hindi but made such nice dishes that recharged us once again. Do not forget to try -Fish curry,Fish Fry(local) ,Chicken Curry and hot rice. Remember to order the food well advance.
