Latest update on Route - 25 Dec 2016

Bangalore - Srisailam journey:

Vehicle : Skoda Rapid

Total Drive time : 8:30 hours with Food/Biobreaks.

Start Time: 0615 hrs from Basavanagudi, Bangalore;
End Time: 1500, Srisailam Parking.

Bangalore - Kurnool : Very good roads. No issues in maintaining 90-100 Kmph.
Food Options at Chickballapur and before Gooty.
Just that there are heavy traffic till Bangalore Airport and post that, traffic thins out.
Heavy fog near Bangalore Airport till KA border. And lot of couples besides the road after Airport Toll for selfie and picnic.
Can cover the stretch by about 4 to 4.5 Hrs

Kurnool - Srisailam: 2 lane roads all the way till the start of Forest Reverve. Very narrow road inside the forest reserve and lots of speed breakers. Average speed 35 to 45 Kmph in the forest reserve sections. Post Dornala roads are very good till Srisailam. There are speed breakers and blind curves along the way just that you need to slow down. No good food / bio breaks options on this road.

I second that Hotel Trishul is the best place for food at Srisailam. But heavily crowded and you need to wait to get seated. Avoid your visit during weekends (Saturday to Monday) as it generally gets crowded.

Past Kurnool, Take the road to Atmakur, Dornala and Srisailam. It is about 180 Kms from Kurnool. Take about 3.5 to 4 Hours.

From Kurnool to Atmakur : Two lane State Highway with slow moving traffic. Very less food options apart from Tea Stalls. No tolls. Distance: 70 Kms

From Atmakur to Dornala: Two lane State Highway with roads within Nallamella Forest Reserve. Just before entering the first reserve, you need to pay Rs.20 as fee in entering the forest reserve. Within the forest reserve, road is very narrow and most of the time, you need to get down the tarmac to make way for oncoming traffic. No good food options. No other tolls. Distance: 60 Kms

From Dornala to Srisailam: Two lane NH. Very good tarmac. Lot of winding and turning roads. You need to pay Rs.20 before you enter Nagarjuna Sagar Tiger Forest Reserve. Lot of Speed breakers before the blind curves and steep down roads. Food Options are limited in Dornala. But might be average to poor.
Before you enter Srisailam, you need to pay Rs.50 as parking fee within Srisailam.

Ample lodging options. Try APTDC (Harita) lodge which is recommended by most of the visitors. Not recommended for Food.
For food Try Trishul restaurant.

Srisailam is a very small town with lots of tourist population. Some amount of road construction work is being carried out in Srisailam hence, expect some oneway and congestions. During my visit; ATM's (none) were not working. So have adequate cash. Within Srisailam only 1 Fuel Station who doesn't take credit / debit cards for fuel. Hence cash is needed.

Let me know if you need any additional details.

Did Bangalore-Srisailam over the long weekend. Started at 4:20 am and reached Srisailam at 3pm with 3 breaks.

Road updates :

Bangalore-Kurnool : excellent as usual.

Kurnool-Atmakur - 2 lane road in good condition.

Atmakur - Dornala - The road in the forest section is about 1.5 lanes and patchy. You need to get off the tarmac with oncoming vehicles. After crossing the forest reserve, the road is good till Dornala. There are places to stay and basic food joints at Dornala. We had to enter vehicle details and paid 20/- at the forest entry checkpost.

Dornala - Srisailam - Good 2 lane roads. Ghat and winding sections. Entry fee for cars was 100/- at Srisailam.

We stayed at the Haritha Hotel which is a decent place to stay. Hotel Trishul is a popular eating joint , but there are cheaper options as well near the IOC bunk.

It was quite decent I would say. We stayed in a double bed non a/c room.

We didn't notice any cockroaches. The rooms and bedsheets were clean. There was hot water from 4-8am ( solar powered ).
