Blog number 101….Special Travel Story of Andhra Pradesh.
For long time my blogging stories are full of birding adventures with family near the close location.So this time fortunately I have change on my board.
Bringing travel memoires of hill station with family and friends.
After a gap of one year after Andaman memorable trip, another addition to my memory cloud is HORSLEY HILLS. The best part of trip was,we hardly have any checklist of places to visit, things to do and still at the end we got soul satisfying journey and experience ,credit goes to place and of course the company.
Scenic beauty on the way
Distance between Horsley hills and Bangalore-157kms
Time taken to reach place-(three breaks in between one for the breakfast and two to capture scenic beauty on the way)-four hour and back journey in just two and half hour without any breaks.
We chose to stay at Hotel Haritha which is at excellent location in terms of proximity to visit and enjoy nature especially when you have kids along with you. The Haritha hotel itself abundantly blessed with dense green belt which is maintained excellently, Kudos to Andhra tourism for same, maintaining such a huge premises effortlessly.
Mini Zoo which is just opposite to Hotel premises.Again kids had wonderful time watching Emu,deer,peacock,ducks,crocodile,parrots,rabbits.For my younger one this was kind of first zoo visit which he enjoyed to the core.
View point which is actually gazebo where some last hour of day, watching sun go down gives u peace,calming and soul satisfying experience.It is so delightful to see sun hiding behind mountains ,taking break for the day,connecting with yourself in fast and stressed life and getting ultimate peaceful time.
Trekking and watching sunset –A confession to make here,although I love nature but trekking on steep mountains is something I will think twice to do…but when u have company of adventurous people, height does not matters.So it was core of trip ,trekking and reaching on top of mountains,rewarding ourselves with heavenly sunset view .I will surely cherish it .Pat on my back!!Thanks to my friend Sujata for motivating pulling me out of my comfort zone,doing something which is surprising for me.
Relaxing Sunset moments.
