NH7 route is 35Km longer than the other route as per google maps, but may be drive on NH7 will be faster? Lets see what others say. Also as MileCruncher asked, are we going as a convoy? if yes, where do we meet?

The road via Shamirpet, Siddipet, Karimnagar is a fantastic route. Please go ahead and take this road with no worries of bad roads. You'll also encounter lesser traffic. Since we need to book rooms at Mancherial it makes sense to use the above road.

On our way back we can head to Nirmal and come down NH7

Lets plan on leaving by 6 am so we reach Mancherial by noon driving leisurely

See you on the road

@DKG: Are we assembling driving together in a group? and if Yes, where do we converge?

Hello people, I am moving out of the confirmed names list as am unable to make it due to some unexpected emergency back home. Wish I could make it but the situation looks very bad.

Would love to be a part of the proposed trip to Mannunar @ NSTR.

I have a open Jeep with no a/c and a senior citizen and as you know its getting hot. So I need to hit the road at 6 am sharp and cover as much while its cool.

But if you guys wish to drive in a convoy pls plan so

Remember its the road to Shamirpet (beyond Secbad club, Alwal etc)

By all means. On the 21st there's a very big garbage clearing event planned at Mannanur for the World Forestry Day and WWF have invited us to participate in this and several other conservation related initiatives

So we need to get our entire group ready for the 21st visit too

We need people who are committed to the cause of conserving Srisailam to step forward and become partners in the exercises planned to rejuvenate the place
