Here are few pictures I have taken when I went to Shrishailam in a cruise.  Shrishailam is in Kurnool district of Andhra Pradesh.  The village is devoted to God Shiva.


There is a Dam with the name of the village.  It is built on river Krishna. On the Krishna river in Nalgonda district of Telangana is Nagarjuna Sagar Dam.  Telangana tourism arranges boat cruise when the water level is appropriate for journey, from Nagarjuna Sagar to Shrisailam.  This will be usually in the month of September and October.

The 110 Km journey is beautiful as it passes amidst hills and rocks and Nallamala forests.  If we are lucky we can see wild life during the course of journey.  The life of tribals seen along the banks will interesting.

Rope way is special attraction at Shri Shailam.  Each car accommodates four persons.  It takes tourists from the hill top to Patala Ganga.
Boat ride in river Krishna at Shri Shailam takes us to near to the dam site and back.  Interested people having enough time 4-6 hrs can as well go to Akka Mahadevi caves and be back.  I just went upto the site of dam
Adventurous people can travel in the coracle
