Thumbs up Hyd to Srisailam--best route

Hi guys,
I've seen postings on trips made to Srisailam from Hyd. As far as I know, there are 2 routes:-
1. Via Uppal-Ibrahimpatnam-Kulkulapalli-Mallepalle-Devarakonda-Road Jn-Srisailam (common route to Nagarjuna sagar upto Mallepalle)

2. Via Mahisama-Amangal-Kalwakurthi-Same Rd Jn-Srisailam

The second route appears to be shorter by 30 or 40 kms, per my calculation from Live Local Search.

My question is, which road is better to drive?

The second route is pretty good, cannot comment on the first one since I have not been on that.

I tried out both routes. The first one is 40 kms longer, and takes you via Mallepalle,which is just 45 kms from Nagarjuna Sagar. Total distance was 268 kms. Return via the second route was 228 kms. Both routes merge at Dindi, from where the route to Srisailam is common.
The forest section between Mananur and Srisailam was fantastic. On my return,I touched 150 kmph on some straight stretches. Had a good time racing an Icon 1.6, but caution boards regarding accident prone zones made me slow down and let him win--what is the point at putting your family in peril ?

I always travel to srisailam from the old city route via, Saidabad, DRDL route ( dont know the names) and From Abids to Srisailam its exactly 225km one way.

I never knew that there is a route from Sagar highway, anyways, 268kms which is 40kms more, so chuck it
