Bhadrachalam, Papikondalu, Rajamundhry: The Godly triumvirate



Sailing together to a little known village in the majestic Godavari is absolutely mesmerising.
If you are really looking to get away from the clutter of city to somewhere in the wilderness then let me suggest you the pristine rivers of Godavari.

The cruise sail stretch of Bhadrachalam, Papikondalu, Rajamundhry in the princely state of Andhra Pradesh which could stretch for 1-2 days is a perfect getaway for everyones looking to spend time together.


I recommend this place because the place is non-nondescript yet alluring to nature lovers. The cruise through the mighty Goadvari from Bhadrachalam to Rajamundry takes about 8 hours and crosses some breathtaking sights.



The cruise stops midway at a village called Peranta Palli and offers nice local lunch. It then crosses the beautiful Papikondulu hill range.




There are also options to stay in tented accommodation in the sandy shores of Godavari overnight and watch the shimmering river flow by under the full moon.





The place has an uncanny resemblance to the Ganges in Rishikesh. The flow of the river is just like the Ganges and sands are just like the shores of Ganges at Rishikesh


Note: Avoid weekends to avoid rush and dont expect luxury.

That was a nice post. I heard great things about this place from my aunts and uncles. Also loved the shots of this place in the movie Godavari. Only confusion was that they said it was a day cruise.

You should mention that all this beauty will be lost once they build the dam there
