We started early in the morning in a Scorpio car and we had a rough drive not on the highway but in the fields and rocks. We had a stay at a place 70 km from our destination in a field and we visited dam,waterfalls, Najarjuna Konda,went into a tribal area ate tribal food. We did not stay in a hotel,we just had fun in the open areas.
I really enjoyed travelling from Mumbai to Kodai. Trust me valley's mountain view was amazing. You can enjoy your journey via Bangalore City. Enjoy South Indian dishes such as idli, dosa, vada and Aapam. Even Viewing Bangalore International Airport is a world class thing. A roads side to it has beautiful landscaping. But ultimate was travelling upwards to Kodaiís Valley.
I had a great time had fun while travelling with a gang of friends and family. I enjoyed food at roadside dhabas and visited Sai Baba temple on the way; it was a good experience. We enjoyed the travel by our own vehicle, but travel by a bus can be really tiring. Its too difficult to travel in a bus to Nagarjuna Sagar.
Having a nice drive in your own car will give you a great experience rather than renting a car and asking the driver to stop there and following his directions, take a smart phone use navigator and you will enjoy. We had multiple stops for food and refreshments and stopped by at under construction of Buddha museum full of green and great view.
