This is absolutely pristine. We stayed at wild winds , holiday home of AP tourism. The hill is well maintained, the sunset and view pints give great views of the valley. Pleasant place.

By road it is around 135 kms from Tirupathi. Around 28 kms from Madanapalle. Nearest railway station is Madanapalle.

The closest bus station or railway station in Madanapalle. From there Horsley is about 50 kms. From Hyderabad, if you are planning to drive down, it will take no less than 9 hours. However, we drove down from Chennai.
