About:
A Mysterious Island with hillocks, green fields, water bodies, temple, and beautiful panoramic views. Such a place is just 200 km only from Hyderabad.
The Island is located in the middle of Nagarjuna Sagar reservoir.

Experience of Team GA:

We sought, directions from the local people to reach the island and discovered that it would take about an hour to reach the island. The two-hour-long trek would take us over two hillocks. We started hiking and trekking through the dry barren land and over small hillocks.

The boat ride to the Yelleswaragattu Island was like entering heaven. We had an awesome view of the Nallamala hills all around. By now we had finished the water we brought with us and had to fill the bottles with water from the Krishna River. The natural taste of the fresh water was priceless.

The morning offers tough competition to the night. The sun rises from behind the hills, giving a beautiful highlight to the gentle waves. A few fishermen are out with their nets and coracles, hoping for an early morning’s catch.
After an hour, we awestruck by the blue skies, blue water and the island in the water. It was love at first sight! We sat on the edge of the hillock for 10 minutes and enjoyed the view. We trekked down the hillock of 400 meters, trampling over loose rocks and rocky terrain, taking almost 30 minutes to reach the river bank. We chilled out in the cool breeze near the water.
