Bangalore to Srisailam Solo Trip plan

Two to Three days trip from Bangalore to Srisailam, If you are Solo riding on a MotorBike or You are a Family driving in a Car, then this two to three days plan works very well to cover Srisailam and one more Shakti Peethas on the way.

Srisailam is one of the places where people get to visit Lord Mallikarjuna (one of the Jyotirlinga) and Goddess Bhramaramba (one of the Ashtadasa Shakti Peetha) in the same place. Alampur is one of the places where you can see Goddess Jogulamba (one of the Ashtadasa Shakti Peetha).

Also there are other interesting places to visit, like Srisailam Dam, Akka Mahadevi Caves, Pathala Ganga,[7] Srikanteshwara Temple in this place. Also on the way you will be crossing Srisailam Tiger Reserve within Nallamala forest.

Route

Bangalore -> Anantapur -> Kurnool -> Nandikotkur -> Atmakur -> Dornala Junction -> Srisailam -> Dornala Junction ->  Atmakur -> Nandikotkur -> Alampur, Gadwal -> Kurnool -> Bangalore

Bangalore -> Anantapur -> Kurnool

  • It’s around 350 KM from Bangalore, starting anywhere from Bangalore, you need to ride towards Hyderabad on NH 44.
  • I suggest you people to start from Bangalore around 10:00 or 10:30. So that you would reach 3:00 or 3:30 to Kurnool.
  • You can take a break anywhere between, there are food joints over here every 30 KM to 40 KM.

Kurnool -> Nandikotkur -> Atmakur -> Dornala Junction

  • It’s around 130 KM from the NH 44 highway to Dornala Junction. You need to take a diversion from NH44 to NH 340C.
  • You would be crossing Nandikotkur and Atmakur to reach Dornala Junction.
  • Here after crossing Atmakur (around 70 KM), you will be entering the Tiger reserve (Nallamala Tiger reserve). Here entry is restricted, allowed from 5:00 AM to 5:00 PM. 
  • Since you will be at Kurnool around 3:00 or 3:30, you will reach the Nallamala Tiger reserve checkpost around 5:00 AM (after crossing Atmakur), It will be the right time to start the stretch.
  • Road from here is a bit narrow, and Landscape in the morning will be quite beautiful.
  • You would reach Dornala Junction around 7:00 AM.

Dornala Junction -> Srisailam

  • It's 50 KM from Dornala Junction to Srisailam. You need to take a diversion from NH 340C to NH 765.
  • Here entry is restricted, allowed from 6:00 AM to 6:00 PM only. You will be here after 6:00 AM.
  • You can take a good break and freshen up a bit (if needed), then start your trip from here, because there are some places to visit on the way before reaching Srisailam.
  • On the way there are places which you can visit.
    • At first you see Srisaila Sikhara Darshanam. You can spend 20 min to 30 min here.
    • Then you will come across PaladaraPanchadara, you can spend 20 min to 30 min here.
    • Near Paladara Panchadara, Hatakeswaram is one more attraction worth visiting. You can spend 15 min to 20 min here.
    • Then you come across Sakshi Ganapati Temple.. You can spend 15 min to 20 min here.
  • You will reach Srisailam by afternoon.

Srisailam

  • Once you reach Srisailam, Find a place to stay and take some rest till the evening and around 4:00 PM visit Pathala Ganga.
  • In case you are not tired, then visit Pathala Ganga, you can spend some time there. 
  • There is Rope Way to reach the Pathala Ganga (you can use this if you are tired of walking down the steps or if you need to just experience a small ride).
  • Later in the night, sleep early after dinner, because you need to go for Darshanam early in the morning.
  • I suggest you reach the temple entrance around 4:00 AM in the morning. Temple Staff will be entering the temple from 3:00 AM onwards, So 4:00 AM would be a good time to enter the temple queue.
  • Initially you get to see Lord Malikarguna and then you get to see Goddess Bhramaramba, early morning it won’t take much time, in an ideal case you should be done with Darshanam in 2 to 3 hrs.
  • Early morning temple premises will be very nice and divine.
  • By 9:00 you will be finished with Darshanam and your breakfast as well.
  • On this day, you can visit one Srisailam Dam View Point (you would spend around 15 to 20 mins).
  • If time permits and if you are interested in Caves, you can visit Akkamahadevi Caves (It would take 3 to 4 hrs of time from Pathala Ganga) or you can skip.

Srisailam -> Dornala Junction ->  Atmakur -> Nandikotkur -> Alampur, Gadwal

  • It’s around 170 KM from Srisailam to Alampur, you would be taking the same route till Nandikotkur and taking a diversion from here (you will be crossing Dornala Junction, Tiger reserve and Atmakur).
  • I suggest you reach Alampur by 4:00 PM. It's around 4 to 5 hrs of journey, better you leave Srisailam around 11:00 AM.

Alampur, Gadwal

  • Jogulamba Ammavari Temple is one of the Ashtadasa Shakti Peetha.
  • Ideally on a regular day, it might take a couple of hours for Darshanam. So you would finish Darshanam around 6:00 or 6:30.
  • If you are tired, you can stay overnight at Alampur or if you are okay, you can leave Alampur.

Alampur, Gadwal -> Kurnool -> Bangalore

  • I suggest you leave Alampur and drive towards Kurnool, it’s around 30 KM. Then take a diversion to NH44. If you are leaving around 7:00 PM, you would reach by 7:30 or 8:00 to Kurnool.
  • You will be reaching Bangalore in 5 to 6 hours, including your breaks.

Few more additional inputs

  • By visiting Akkamahadevi Caves, your plans will change. You might need to reach Alampur at night and stay at Alampur. And get the Darshanam early in the morning.
  • Chenchu Lakshmi Tribal Museum is one more place worth visiting in Srisailam. It might take 30 min (consider visiting this place, if time permits).
  • I suggest you book your stay Online. In case you don’t get the stay online, left side of the temple, there are private cottages (consider these stays)
  • I know, it’s kind of a tight plan, but it’s worth planning this way, because you can cover it in 2 days. And better to make sure there are at least 2 people who can drive.

To conclude, you might have a clear picture of how to plan your trip from Bangalore to Srisailam and the places to visit in Srisailam. Thanks for reading the article, for more travel related articles read our peoples blog articles.
