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.

Now lets #getmuddy..

Terms and conditions

Terms and conditions

The "Offbeat" theme of Muddie Trails:
Muddie Trails provides real offbeat experiences for the travelers like trekking, adventure activities, camping in tents, bonfire, barbecue, visiting exploring and experiencing the unknown but awesome destinations that are not crowded with tourists. We do NOT take travelers to a tourist place unless it is required as a "filler" in the itinerary between two offbeat places. 
Travelers are requested to refrain from asking our organizers to take them to ABC temple or XYZ church. The itinerary is already decided and posted based on our offbeat theme. Organizer will only change the itinerary if any place cannot be done because of unpredictable reasons. If you have a wish list of tourist places to tick off in your mind, then probably Muddie Trails is not for you and we request you - please do not register.

By paying the registration fee you are giving unconditional acceptance of the below 
Terms & Conditions of Muddie Trails:

1. No alcohol & smoking during Treks & adventure activities. There would be separate window and space (usually at night) to have these at campsite/homestay for interested people (only if the campsite/homestay permits)
2. We assure awesome memories every trip, but not awesome facilities! No Luxury. We provide basic facilities in terms of food, travel & accommodation. In some places, especially for treks & forest-related Meetups, expect not so neat washrooms/change rooms, and basic but edible food :)
3. We wouldnt want to waste time in sitting at a restaurant and munch our food for hours during trips. This wastes our precious time. So we pack our food whenever possible to avoid unnecessary delays.
3. In some Meetups, especially treks involving wild forest, expect leeches and other insects. However we can take precautions to avoid them - we discuss these things in our trip's WhatsApp group.
4. Our itinerary is flexible. It may happen we do not cover all the places mentioned in the itinerary because of unpredictable reasons like weather, wild animal presence, abrupt blocking of sites by the forest department, delay in travel because of an issue with our group itself, traffic conditions etc. In most cases, if the time permits, we try to travel to an alternative place. But in some cases, we may have to skip a place altogether.
5. Absolutely no littering during our travels. We swear to protect our environment.
6. Please co-operate with the organizer in following the schedule set for the day (especially getting up and getting ready in the morning). This will ensure we won't miss out on the real fun part - that is traveling. 
7. You are responsible for your own safety while traveling with Muddie Trails. Don't indulge in any illegal or silly activity that causes harm to you or fellow travelers.

Trek Policies:
* Nobody shall deviate from Trek path led by Organizers/Guide.
* During the meetup Muddie Trails is not responsible in case of any injuries or animal attacks or reptile bites.
* Expect the unexpected in case of wild forests like the sudden closing of trek path by govt/forest department(because of wild animal sighting/landslide/some crime), in which case we may have to cancel the trek (This is very rare - never happened till now). In this case, the Organizer will plan for alternate trek/trip. If this is not possible then Muddie Trails will refund the remaining amount after removing the travel cost.

Refund policy:
- 10% convenience charges will be deducted in any kind of refund done online

- 90% refund if you make a request before 3 days of the meetup start date.
- 50% refund within 3 days and before 24 hours from meetup start time.
- No refund within 24 hours from meetup start time
- No refund during/after the meetup 

Note: Refund will be credited in 1-3 weeks

Behavioral Policy: 
* Travelers are expected to respect each other and help each other.
* Avoid discussing sensitive matters like SEX, POLITICS and RELIGION/RACE
* Using foul or abusive language or arguing with fellow travelers/ organizer will not be acceptable and will stand a chance of being deserted by the travel group.

Reviews for Organizer 4.5

After 2 years of delaying and decaying my plans to Goa, one fine day I see an event in the meetup.com posted by Muddie Trails and I registered for the event. There were a lot of expectations and fears from this Goa trip.

I have to say my Goa trip has become a memorable experience and have loads of beautiful things to say about the trip. Thanks to Muddie trails. Our organizer (now friend) Shradha has done a great job in managing itinerary and making things hassle free.

Why Muddie Trails:

- Avoid the hassle of booking rooms and tickets for to and fro.

- Avoid the risk of getting cheated. Goa is that place.

- Reduce the travel cost to travel from place to place in and around Goa.

- Not getting lost - what to see and what to look for.

- Flexibility

What we did:

On the first day of our trip, the driver did a great job by helping us reach Panjim 3 hours earlier than expected. We had to few hours to spare. We visited the Aguada fort, which wasn't on the itinerary. Later we had a normal lunch(keep your expectations on the check regarding food. It's not a food festival). Later we headed back to Calangute beach and did water sports like banana ride, Parasailing, and few other things(The budget for this things are on you). Later we were about to head to Baga beach party. As it was a long weekend, the club was flooded with people. So there was a slight twist in the plan. (These things happen). We did the same party in our room, with all the music and dance and AC on. I could feel Goa in my blood already.

On the second day, we were headed to the highlight of the event. We traveled almost an hour to a secluded island. Throughout the journey, all the needs were fulfilled(Water, food, cool drinks and BEER!). We were lucky to see a few dolphins. Then we went to a part of the sea and did snorkeling. It was once in a lifetime experience(Fishing does really happen if you are lucky enough). Then we reached an island, and it was completely secluded and was stretched for more than 3 KMS. The long stroll along the beach, with hot sand, touching your feet and the waves occasionally kissing was a beautiful experience. Later we had food provided(Once again, keep your expectations in check), which was Ok,Ok. Then later we returned back to our rooms provided, with lots of sand in shirt and pants. Later that night, we reached Baga beach. It was a great scene to watch. The food at night was once again on us.

The third day we came to Calangute beach, shopped and surveyed around the beach for few hours and spent some quality time with all the beautiful people who were part of our trip.

The trip came to a halting end, with emotional hugs and smiles. Three days just flew by and all the best moments of life were packed in those three days.

If you see this event from Muddie Trails to Goa, do yourself a favor it. Go for it.
