The road route from Hyd to Srisailam via NH 765 is good, but the roads are narrow. There are no dividers on the way. There are no lights on this route. There are very less petrol pumps on the way. There are no directions on the way unlike Vijayawada route.

Should take the NH7, best time to start for the Srisailam journey is early morning around 6 or 7 am. SUV would be the best for the journey. Should carry sufficient drinks and food for the journey. Must take snaps during the journey. You can enjoy the moment with family and friends by site scene, dense forests, beautiful forest animals, lakes, etc.

Because of weekend the bus was over crowded, even other days also generally the buses to Srisailam Devastanam mad rush, because of non A/c we faced difficulty. I suggest to travel by car is good. After getting down at the destination point we got the room facilities and we took leisure.

Best to travel from Hyderabad to Srisailam. If you wants to return on the same day then better to start by 5 Am from Hyderabad for your information the Forest Ghat Section road will be closed by 8 Pm or 8.30 Pm and will open by 6 Am, so plan your trip accordingly.

As we know Srisailam is covered with hill and forest, so we have to look for safety first, I would prefer Yellow Cabs Hyderabad or Red Cabs Hyderabad, I used these two taxi operator and my experience was good. Always better if you start in morning hours from Hyderabad. Jai Lord Siva.
