It was really horrible journey from Hyderabad to Kuntala falls. The bus we hired was having little lesser blow in one of its front wheels and upon enquiring driver assured that is just because of weight and nothing to worry. As we just proceeded to look for any shops having air blowing pump, it ended up without any success. For our bad luck even stepney wheel was punctured! Finally changed tires exchanging front ones with rear as rear side will have two tires. By the time we helped driver in changing tires and settle down, battery was down and we were asked to push the bus. That was the height of bad luck but we learnt very good lesson about precautions to take while going for long trip.
Nilaypet lake - Nirmal Taluk
We reached Kuntala falls enjoyed and came near bus. For our surprise driver was not around and left the keys in bus itself. We searched for him in the vicinity for more than two hours but we were clueless about him where he disappeared suddenly. After losing hopes of him coming back we were about to start vehicle and go as keys were there. After almost two and half hours all of a sudden driver appeared from nowhere and told that he was having sleep. Quickly we started from there to Medak as we were planning to do Kayaking and boating there. It was late and we stopped at Sing is King Dhaba for food. Food was quite ok and we found that it is difficult to reach Medak before sunset.
blowing air to air boats
We could see a lake in front of dhaba and just went to see whether it is possible to do boating in that. Even though there were no traces of anyone doing that before. We thought it can be done as the lake was good and water was also quite free from pollution.
ready to get into water
We parked bus, untied Kayaks and pumped air to boats and started boating and kayaking one by one. Meanwhile villagers also came and started watching us thinking we are catching fish as they are not aware of doing all these for fun. When I asked they said it is Nilaypet lake of Nirmal taluk. Even police en route visited us and enquired about the happenings. Upon knowing even they were interested and did boating and Kayaking with us. It was good to interact with them.
Police Inspector doing Kayaking
Till sunset we enjoyed and started back to Hyderabad. Luck again not favoring us just few kilometers before Hyderabad fuel got over in bus! Again searched for empty bottles and one local guy upon request took driver to nearby fuelling station and brought fuel. In half an hour, we started from there and reached Hyderabad quite late. But fun was ultimate as it was exploring the unexplored!
