The City of Hyderabad, as beautiful as it is with The Charminar, Hussain Sagar Lake, Birla Mandir, etc., offers several options for exotic weekend getaways. Here’s a list of five weekend getaways that I recommend you explore the next time you are in Hyderabad:
Named after the 6th Nizam of Hyderabad, Mahabubnagar is primarily known for the numerous religious and historic sites. Among the temples, Jogulamba Temple and Ranganayaka Swamy Temple are the most popular among the tourists. Another major attraction is Pillalamarri Banyan tree that’s over 800 years old and has many prop roots that are spread over 3 acres of land. Mahabubnagar is about 102 kms (via Srinagar-Kanyakumari Highway) from Hyderabad and it takes about 2 hrs by car, to reach the place.
A perfect picnic spot to head out to with friends and family, Maredumilli and Rampachodavaram is located within the Forest Areas and has several waterfalls such as Jalatarangini Waterfalls and Swarnadhara & Rampa waterfalls. It’s about 430 kms from Hyderabad and it takes about 8.5 hours to reach the place.
The largest cave system, Belum Caves is epitomized by long passages, vast caverns, and galleries. Although Belum cave system is the longest in India that’s open to tourists, they can only access upto 1.5 km; it is, however, easily accessible as APTDC has made excellent arrangements such as electronic gates, metal staircase, etc. for the ease of the tourists. Belum Caves is about 320 kms away from Hyderabad and it takes about 6.5 hours by car to reach the place.
