@MC what a place to meditate! A few snaps down the line line then I see a monkey in the centre of the road!

Jokes apart, you guys had a terrific trip! The long road with a hill at the end looks very nice.

The Magic of NSTR never dies. Abundant Greenery around and ample of Water Holes gives a fake satisfaction about the abundance of Wildlife in this forest range. Alas, it isin't so. Thanks to the commercialization and many more malpractices on, they seem to be straying away. Devoiding us of the mere sight of amazing wilderness.

Just went through the thread again and realised that I hadn't posted a single pic here. May be because I was traveling when the travelogue was up. Hence without much further ado, here are pictures taken from camera

Those are some great pictures of Srisailam. It is an awsome place. Also if you have the right contacts, one can go into the deep jungles of Nallamala forests. I had done it long back and I am planning to do the same in one of the coming weeks. It is a 30 kms trek inside. Vehicles can go inside to some extent (jeeps). But Only the forest departments jeeps are allowed.
After that one can go on a 30 km trek one way and visit the Chenchu tribes. They still do not know anything about the civilization outside and still live in the wilderness and live a nomadic life. They speak a dialect of Telugu and they will take you on their trips to collect honey and hunting. They still use bows and arrows to hunt. On the way to Srisailam, one see villages like domalapenta, eegalapenta, sunnipenta etc. The word Penta comes from Chenchu dialect which means a village.
Link for some information regarding them.
Chenchus, Physical Characteristics of the Chenchus Tribe, Economic conditions of Chenchus : Eco India

It was a great experience back then (about 5 to 6 years ago).

There are social activists who go to them and help them and give them medicines. Additionally note that it is an Agency area and apparently there are some naxalites in that area currently. But they do not attack harmless visiters like us (I guess).
Once inside the forests there is plenty to see. There are temples. They take downstream of Krishna River where there are some waterfalls. They also have some festival once a year although it happened back in March or something this time.

One thing I would like to point out is that government allots quite a lot of funds to these tribes which go missing in between. This is a shame, but thankfully some social workers do help them out with clothes and medicines.

Apart from this, there is a second route to go inside these forests via Mahbubnagar to visit the Chenchus ( A different village). I have not done this but this is also quite a primitive inhabitation of the Chenchus and one would need permission from the authorities to visit them.

I am planning to do a trip to visit these tribes again in the near future to see if I can help them in anyway possible. Hope this information was helpful

himavanth,

Very useful information from you, I would like to add that Chenchu's are immune to the Malarial Parasite.
