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

About the destination:
Gandikota on the right bank of the river Penna in Andhra Pradesh is known for its spectacular gorge formed by river Pennar that cuts through the Erramala hills. This handsome piece of Natures 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.

 Important note:

  • This is an offbeat event at an offbeat place. The facilities will be very basic as Gandikota is a proper village without any infrastructure. But the experience would be amazing, with our group. If you feel you cannot adjust without hotel/change rooms or private bathrooms, then we request you please do not register.

Feel free to contact Muddie Trails organizers if any doubt. We will be happy to help you :)

Reviews for Organizer 4.0
The guide Rakesh Ranjan, was inexperienced ,lacked leadership quality, and most of all was physically unfit for the role of a trek guide. To begin with, the schedules bus pickup was at 6pm, I understand it was raining, but he reached 1 hour late, didn't share bus location inspite of repeated request by multiple people, as a result we were not able to locate the bus, and the bus started 1hr 15 min late.All pickups were only done by 10:30 and all people were extremely hungry but Rakesh stopped the bus at the worst of the restaurants, where the food was unhygienic and washrooms were worse than public toilets. Basically I ended up starving that night.There was an elderly man in the trip who got the last seat, he had back issues and he repeatedly requested Rakesh to arrange front seat for him. But Rakesh didn't make any proper efforts for him and eventually the elderly couple had to cancel the trip and drop off mid way. Basically he lacked leadership quality totally.For breakfast on 5th the place was decent.No complaints there.Lunch on 5th was self sponsored so no complaints again.For dinner we selected a nice place but Rakesh had major budget constraints, we were ready to pay extra on top of his budget allocated but again that place was cancelled.Major disappointment there!! And we ended up wasting 1+ hour in deciding the place. Amazing display of decision making but Rakesh yet again.After dinner we reached homestay at 12pm, the homestay was fine , but again basic water also wasn't provided even after multiple request. How can someone be so inconsiderate? At this point Rakesh has started ignoring our complaints and wasn't giving any response. When we confronted him , he behaved rudely and called me as a negative personality, Seriously!! How unprofessional!!When trek started at 8!m, we continuously walked for 2hours before we got the breakfast. Poha served for breakfast was fine but tea was pathetic.Throughout the trek Rakesh was lack luster and was the last one struggling to walk.His health wasn't good I guess. There weren't any instructions from him and in light of this, people were going in all random directions. We had no idea when to come back and where to assemble.Clear lack of leadership there.It looked like we were guiding Rakesh rather than him doing it for us.Overall the trip could have been much better of we had a responsible , energetic and leader kind of guide. Would not prefer coming by Muddies.com ever again. - by Subhash Sahni for Dudhsagar Trek with Colva Beach of Goa organized by Muddie Trails .
