Scenic gorge of Papi Hills

welcome to the journey to Papi hills or Papikondalu! The beautiful scenery graced by the cloudy hill tops and the calm Godavari flowing in between , taking its visitors to an earthly heaven. Papikondalu are distributed among the East Godavari, West Godavari and Khammam district in Andhra Pradesh.

 The Journey started with a foggy road inviting us into the hills full of greenery and life.

The road journey gets even more exciting with its exotic views and the green farms along the highway which fills the journey with awe of the beauty and the landscape view of bright morning blue sky and the flush green fields with mountains on the background.

Who would not want to paint such a view on the canvas? I am sure all of us had our days of painting the mountains with water streaming down its slope with plants beneath the hill and the sky in blue. 🙂

As the journey proceeded the views got even better with the beach that came our way and mind you its a place you got to visit if you want the peaceful stay at the beach with no chaos unlike the commercial money making destinations.
