A hilly way with boat ride leads to Bhadrachalam Temple

the main theme of the boat ride between these hills is to reach "bhadrachalam temple"...this ride will long for "3days from rajhamundry"..several "cottage boats are available" for the travellers. the ride costs starts from "2000/-" for a comfortable rideper each. and it is recommended to start from rajhamundry with all the needy materials as it is not possible to buy anything in the middle...the attractions of this ride are "shore dinner",and "sunrise scenary of the river"... and after the ride places to see are "ramachandra temple", "parnasala",...the temple will be available for the travellers from morning to 12:30pm..,

Papi Hills a must visit place for nature love rd

I liked the view of Papi hills from starting of the tour i.e., early morning. The view of sun rise id astonidhing when you are travelling in a boat. The waves of river shining in the sun rays is one of the clickable movement especially when you are a photographer. As you travel the high standing hills and the curvy river path will definitely surprise you. In the tour you will come through some temples cited by riverside and the handicrafts sell by the locals are beautiful and they will fit in everyones showcase.If you wish to stay at night there are wooden huts and food facilities are there. Overall it's a cool place to visit.
