whoa, you gotta wait till morning I guess to get some replies on that one. By the way do file a detailed report on road conditions, ease of navigations, things to watch out for, final route taken etc.

so far is this Horsley Hills? And is it in AP or Karnataka?

U need not go till Madanapalle...I suggest the following route which will be faster

Route: Hyderabad - Jadcherla - Kurnool - Gooty - Anantapur (on NH7, turn left on NH205) - Kadiri - HH

There is a right turn about 10km before madanapalle, just ask somebody for HH about 15km before madanapalle on Nh205....After turning right it is about 8km of hill climb....

akroy's recommended route is the fastest way to HH.

The road leading to Kadiri is fine and in general, you'll find NH205 devoid of traffic in that sector.

The road in Kadiri town (which you will pass through) is a nightmare and it is best to do this in daylight. The road in front of the bus terminus is specially worth mentioning (total 4x4 territory).

After Kadiri town, the roads are again OK.

What is special to you? If u r in a mood to roam around then dont go to HH....and if u want to just relax, have a nice early morning walk, swimming in the pool and hear the chirping wind sound then u go there...

But, let me tell there is no point going there if u cannot book punnami hill resort...there are 2-3 points inside the huge resort itself....plus the nice pool at just 25 rs / hr....u can enjoy it...

For more info...read my travelogue in the appropriate section...

It's a Hillstation and I was told that its got a very good view points and there is a sanctuary near by and if you go 100km further you would be seeing Talakona waterfalls which is amazing it seems.

Talakona is a fascinating place. We visited it in 1997 by driving down from Tirupati---was an hour's drive from there.
You gotta walk a km through a forest, with trees more than a century old, till you reach the waterfall. The water cascades from a height of 300 feet or so, and it is delightful to bathe in the stream below.
A must see for visitors in the vicinity.

So is it safe to assume that HH is about 400kms from Hyderabad?
