Gandikota

(To Enquire, call us now: +91 7402357569)

Gandikota, a small village in the Kadapa district of Andhra Pradesh, is known for its spectacular gorge formed by the river Pennar, cutting through Erramala hills. This handsome piece of Nature’s architecture has come to be known as the Hidden Grand Canyon of India by travelers.
You need to be there to be bewitched by its beauty!
Pictures of the Antelope Canyons in Arizona must always have fascinated you right? What if I say you could get that same experience in India? You heard that right! Apart from an Indian version of Grand Canyon, we also have an Indian version of the Antelope Canyons called the Belum Caves.
Not just that, there are several other attractions in and near the village that allure visitors, the most special being the ancient, magnificent Gandikota Fort that sits majestically on top of the gorge. Apart from the unmatched beauty of the gorge, the mystical charm of this fort makes a visit to this village all the more exciting for history lovers and adventure seekers.

Detailed Itinerary:

Day 0:

Overnight Journey from Chennai, on a 350km long drive to Gandikota. A brief intro about the trek and the dos and don’ts will be given along with a few icebreakers to make everyone in the group comfortable. Our trekkers are encouraged to have light food and enjoy a delightful travel.

Day 1:

After Fresh up and breakfast, the trek begins. On reaching our spot for adventure activities, we indulge in enthralling ones such as Rappelling, Kayaking and Rock climbing.
Prepare to be mesmerized by the sunset from the top of the Gorge that evening.
This Indian version of The Grand Canyon, over the coming years, might be giving serious competition to its Arizona counterpart owing to its breathtaking beauty. The best part is that this small, offbeat village has not yet been commercialized, which means you’re not likely to find noisy crowds of tourists photobombing your selfies and garbage littered about everywhere!
Once we back to our campsite a well-prepared dinner will be waiting for you followed by campfire and activities.

 

Day 2:

Early morning hike to the Gorge to witness the sunrise. These are the times that you cannot afford to miss.
After breakfast, visit Madhavaraya Temple, Jama Masjid, Granary, Ranganatha Swamy Temple, Fort Entrance, and Jail which are all present inside the fort wall. We start our journey to Belum caves from there.
Later that night, we start our return journey to Chennai with a self-sponsored dinner.
