Default Route Query: Hyderabad to Araku via Sileru and Paderu.

Two of us are planning to ride to Araku this weekend on bikes. We are not interested in the regular Vijayawada-Rajamundry-Anakapalle-Araku route. We are very much interested in taking the following route.

Hyderabad-Warangal-Narsampet-Illendu-Badhrachalam-Sileru-Paderu-Araku.

The route between Sileru and Paderu is a dense forest and is a naxal infested area. I would like to know if we can ride on bikes in this route. Are there any incidents where naxals stopped the regular travelers?

Also, How is the route between Warangal and Illendu? We are not preferring the Suryapet-Khamma route as the roads are being widened.

Any updates and suggestions on the road conditions is highly appreciated.

Surprising that nobody has done this route from Hyderabad. I have done some inquiries and seems it can be doable in daytime. There have been heavy rains for the past two days in north andhra area. We, a group of three, are starting on Sunday morning to Bhadrachalam. We plan to stay there for the night and start early in the morning towards Sileru. From Sileru we take route to Paderu through the dense forest and reach Araku by night.

With incessant rain forecast, lets see how things go.

Hi,

I am travelling from Bhadrachalam to Vizag in my Scorpio on Oct 30 with my family.
There are two options to drive.

Route 1:
Bhadrachalam - Chinturu - Mothugudem - Sileru - Kuyyuru - Vizag

Route 2:
Bhadrachalam - Chinturu - Rampachodavaram - Kukonur - Rajamandry - Annavaram - Vizag

Which is the preferred route as the route 1 is said to be east godavari agency area?

Please help.
