Just four hours away from Hyderabad city is Somasila. The quaint and untouched (at least till now) is a good option for those wanting to have a holiday at the spur of the moment. You can do away with elaborate booking plans and hectic traveling schedules and still enjoy the beauty of nature in all its glory.


Somasila is located on the banks of river Krishna, and the entire place is filled with natural beauty. One can rent a cottage right on the banks of river Krishna. The Telangana Tourism department runs Haritha cottages for tourists, and these are quite affordable and perfect for an overnight stay. The tariff is Rs 500 for the basic room, and you can get to see the sun rising right from your balcony.


Tourists can also take a small boat or coracle rides on the small gorge that runs through the place. They can also visit the many temples around the area if they are devout or have enough time to cover them.


You can also get good comfort food at the Haritha cottages, and one can also plan a visit to the little-known secret island. Then, of course, there is a major attraction – Sri Sangameswara Swamy temple on the foreshore of Srisailam reservoir. It is submerged in the water and surfaces only during summers for a short while or when water levels are low.


One can also hire a boat or a mini boat for a sunrise or sunset cruise. The best time to visit Somasila is between October and February. The place is about 175 km from Hyderabad. Other local attractions include temple cluster (20) at Jetprolu, Sir Jogulamba Bala Brahmeswara Swamy temple at Alampur, Sri Lakshmi Narasimha Swamy temple at Singotam, and Madhava Swamy temple in Kollapur.
