Get lost amidst green meadows, cloudy hilltops and wind rocks at Horsley Hills, 10 hours away from Hyderabad. Horsley Hills is one of the few non-commercialised picturesque places in Andhra Pradesh, where you can spend an entire day basking in the natural beauty. Drive up the hills to breathtaking viewpoints, and sit in solitude during dawn (or dusk). You can also witness the flora and fauna (chirping birds and monkeys will surely entertain you) of the region in their natural habitat. While the Gali Bandalu (wind rocks) are the must-visit places in Horsley Hills, don't forget to check out the backwaters of Gangotri Lake, the ruins of Chennakesava Temple, and a 150-year-old Eucalyptus Tree called Kalyani. Take note: these are definitely the top things to do in Horsley Hills.
If you are looking for a good stay, we recommend checking Haritha Hill Resort, which is run by the Telangana Government.
Getting there: If you cannot make it a road trip, take an overnight train to Horsley Hills. You can also take a bus, but it goes through Bangalore making it a super long journey.
