The Gorgeous Gandikota - Camping, Swimming, Belum Caves

Friday 10:00 PM - Gandikota · Gandikota · Bangalore

Muddie Trails presents the amazing combination of beautiful Gandikota & magnificent Belum caves this weekend!

About the destination:

Gandikota along the banks river Penna in Andhra Pradesh is known for its spectacular gorge formed by river Penna that cuts through the Erramala hills. This handsome piece of nature’s architecture has come to be known as the Grand Canyon of India by travelers who visit it and get bewitched by its beauty. Apart from the unmatched beauty of the gorge, the mystical charm of this fort makes a visit to this village all the more exciting for history lovers and adventure seekers.
