Srisailam-Places to explore


Finally writing last week pending travel blog now.After Srisailam visit I realised, it will helpful for others planning to visit place,if  I will share my experience of place and journey.No doubt place is famous for its religious significance ,Malikarjuna deity temple and Srisailam devasthan.But other than this nothing much is mentioned on google regarding tourism.

I have already written one exclusive blog about birding and wildlife experience,this goes exclusively for only places to visit around and travel tips.

We started at 5.45am in the morning,and would like to share highway is very well maintained and traffic free,destination was 236kms away,duration of 4 hours,we took more as usual stoppage in between…Our stay was Haritha Hotel at Srisailam which is average place to stay ,government maintained hotel.


Journey is full of different land terrain mountains,lake,dense  forests, river bank which is indeed enjoyable experience and picturesque sight.

AutoTime for Hotspots

AutoNallamalla Forest  on the way is dense forest of Eastern ghat,spread across large area on the bank of Krishna river,rich in flora and fauna,definitely must visit place for nature enthusiast if going to Srisailam.I manage to click good numbers of birds and wildlife during my visit mentioned in my previous blog.
