Papi Hills or Papikonda Wildlife Sanctuary or Papikondalu is a scenic place with deep gorges on Godavari river sorrunded by densely Forested hills and valleys. Papi Hills can be reched through Kunavaram or Rajahmundry. Papikondalu is about 350 KMs from Hyderabad.
Papi Hills offer one of the most scenic boat rides along the Godavari River. The views from the boat or otherwise are so placid that it will take away all your stress. From the boat ride do not expect a luxury cruise. It is more of a plain ferry boat that a cruise. It may include activities like dance and few games, simple lunch on board, basic toilet onboard. You can choose to stay at Kolluru huts for the night or return to Bhadrachalam or Rajamundry.
APTDC even offers boat rides on the river through Papikondalu which can be boarded from Rajahmundry. Boat rides can be a day trip or 2 day trips. From Kunavaram, one can reach faster. If travelling by car one will have to hike last few kilometers. Cell reception in the area as also quite bad.
