LOVE BREEZY WEATHER?
LOVE LUSH GREEN VALLEY?
If you are in Hyderabad, look no further than Ananthagiri hills. This gem is hidden in Vikarabad, Ranga Reddy district. The drive is easy and the roads are well maintained. We had started from Gachibowli and drove over ORR to Chevella. From there we took the road to Vikarabad. There are several shops on the way where you can easily get breakfast. We had packed our food so we did not stop on our way.
Once you enter Vikarabad, you will be greeted with tall green trees and peaceful silence. We had travelled on a rainy day which had made the forest more attractive. Ananthagiri hills or “Limitless” hillock overlooks a valley.
The viewpoint provides excellent edge for admiring the valley. The clouds shrouded the horizon and it looked surreal from viewpoint. The valley below was barely visible due to rain. It almost looked like a translucent veil hiding the horizon from our eyes! The mild breeze promised of abundance. The rain- washed leaves were soothing to eyes. The quaint valley was vibrant with chirping birds.
I was delighted to see that its quite well maintained and clean area. The viewpoint is hardly 50 km drive from Hyderabad and is easy to reach. Its a simple long drive to be taken right after a rainy night. A quick getaway from monotonous life – Ananthagiri hills is your answer!
