About The Places :
Gandikota acquired its name from the picturesque gorge (called Gandi in Telugu) formed between the Erramalai hills, which are also called the Gandikota hills. A deep valley and impassable hills with massive boulders of red granite, reminding one of the Grand Canyon, surround the fort, situated amid wild forests. The gorge formation is such that the Pennar river flows about 90 metres below on the western and northern sides and is said to have offered strong natural defense to the Kakatiya, Vijayanagar and Qutub Shahi kings who ruled from the fort.
From the top of the fort, you can have a breathtakingly panoramic view of the surrounding forests and valleys. Nearby, is the picturesque Mylavaram Dam which is a popular picnic spot because of the sparkling waters, lush trees and cool breeze, which make you want to stretch out and relax. This will be place to retire in the night
Yaganti is located in the Kurnool District in the state of Andhra Pradesh, India, approximately 100 km from the city of Kurnool. The temple is in the Banaganapalle mandal, 14 km west of Banagapalle (Mandal headquarters) on the Banaganapalle-Peapully road.
Belum Caves is the second largest cave in Indian subcontinent (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Indian_subcontinent) and the longest caves in plains of Indian Subcontinent, known for its stalactite (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stalactite) and stalagmite (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stalagmite) formations. Belum Caves have long passages, spacious chambers, fresh water galleries and siphons. It is a natural underground cave formed by the constant flow of underground water. The caves reach its deepest point (150 feet from entrance level) at the point known as Pataalaganga. Belum Caves derive their name from "Bilum" Sanskrit (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sanskrit) word for caves. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Belum_Caves#cite_note-Dec-1) In Telugu language (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Telugu_language), it is called Belum Guhalu. Belum Caves has a length of 3229 metres, making it the second largest natural caves in Indian Subcontinent.
