if you are looking for places in Andhra then you can plan a trip to Araku valley or Horseley Hills. But you can not spend more than 2-3 days at either place so may be you have to go down south to the hill stations.

possibly you should consider coming down South to Karnataka/Tamil Nadu/ Kerala - to one of the hill stations/ plantation districts here.

Can be done on a relatively low budget with maximum bang for the Buck.

Destinations like Coorg, Kabini, Chikmagalur,Ooty, Wyanaad, Yercaud etc offer a holidaymaker a great deal of enjoyment at a reasonable price.

You can cover Gangtok, Darjeeling and Kalimpong.

The other plan is the Himalayan regions of UP/Uttaranchal. Nainital/Almora/Jim Corbett/Kausani/Binsar/Munisiyari etc. For this you need to go to Delhi and take a night train to Katgodham.

Well if you are looking for cool weather and is drivable from HYD, you have very few options, may be Ooty, Kodai and Munnar.

THANK YOU EVERYONE!

i have visited ooty just recently, would love to go again. North east, i'll give it a miss as it is fairly unchartered territory. I am considering mahabaleshwar, panchgini OR may be kerala.

C'mon guys promote these places.. will MH be cool during those times?
If i go south, i'll do bangalore, ooty, coorg, kodai, cochi etc...

let the responses flow!

thanks.

i dont think mahabaleshwar, panchgini come even close to kerala, coorg and kodai.

So if you can manage a south trip go for it.

How about the below?

Hyderabad->Bangalore->Coorg->Kasargod->Kannur->Wayanad->Kochi->Munnar->Theni->Kodaikanal->Chennai->Hyderabad

I think it should be doable in two weeks.

You can reach delhi in two easy days of driving. Why not the himalayas?

else do the tiger circuits - would be amazing sightings in Madhya Pradesh at this time!
