Very nice Bro *** Very nice bro Extremely superb Pics Dr Karthik.👍
Yesterday, I had travelled by my car from Kanchipuram to Hyderabad, via Tiruttani, Renigunta, Kadapa, Nandyal, Kurnool. Starting from Kanchipuram at 6 a.m. & reaching my Safilguda home at 6:45 p.m., with 2 halts in between (Venkatanarasimharajuvaripeta for breakfast & Kurnool for lunch).
It was really a breathtaking experience full of greenery, beautiful hillocks, forests, pristine lakes & rivers, good roads and multiple rail sections en-route.
The rivers that I had seen during this travel were Kallar river, Penna river, Tungabhadra river & Krishna river (to name a few).
rail sections that I had come across en-route (partly, if not fully) were Chengalpattu-Arakkonam branch line, Arakkonam-Renigunta line, Renigunta-Kadapa line, Venkatachalam-Obulavaripalle line, Nandyal-Yerraguntla branch line, Nandyal-Dhone line, Dhone-Secunderabad line & Secunderabad-Medchal line.
Here are some of the pics captured during my travel (Pardon me if some of them weren't that clear).
