Created a map based on route given by DKG

Google Maps
Search for
From:Hyderabad TOindi
Then Zoom into Dindi and then search for Mananur
From:Hyderabad TO:Mananur

Directly searching for Mananur will not always work.

I used to go quite regularly on Treks into the Agumbe Forest in Shimoga, Karnataka and I feel that is a very good way to get to know the nature. We also used to do camping in the Jungle in the clearing areas.

May be going forward, we can do something like that. Also would like to know what are the options for Trekking (Routes, distances) so that I can come prepared accordingly.

There are apparently three treks from Mannanur. One is a steep climb to Pratap Rudra Fort, the other two are a combination of plains and hill. All the treks will approx take 2-3 hours.

BTW you may wish to read up a little more about the reserve here:

One guy is a Mile Cruncher, wonder what he'll crunch on in our forest

Another does Blacmagic and there's one guy who is a Traveloholic

One guy says he's already Lost and another has fallen in love with Highways.

We better shut the forest sir, otherwise nothing will be left when this bunch arrives !!"

There is no way we would be able to talk our way out of this for sure !!

@DKG, a very humorous way of putting a point across. Mail already sent across.

Can someone please confirm, if we can carpool to go to Mannuar?

I would be near Himayat Nagar/Vijay Nagar Colony. This would be based on convenience of the car pooler.
