    A vast expanse of green, Guindy National Park is a one-of-a-kind park in Chennai, which is home to many species of animals and birds. A perfect location for a picnic with family and friends, the park offers a variety of amusement for kids including slides and swings. Have a look at the green side of Chennai with the biggest diversity of plants in the city.

    It is located about 9 kms from Chennai Central Railway Station and houses a wide of variety of birds and animals including peacocks, swans, cranes, flamingos, owls, bears, and a whole lot of monkeys and langurs.

    The entry fee is reasonably low and the paths inside are wheelchair friendly

    Unfortunately, not a very clear day, you could see possibly 5km and see the Marina Beach well enough

    Price for the visit is good. They allow outside food also. One or two rides is under maintenance but the water rides and waves are very good. Can spend a day very easily. Do not miss the cable car and train.

    #Unbalamadugufalls situated at the boarder of andhra and Tamilnadu, 20 kmts from Tada. This is also called Tada falls.
    Sign boards are placed from Varadaiahpalem till forest entrance gate to Basecamp. Vehicles will be checked at main entrance and its no plastic zone however neither security nor some of the public doesn’t care. Eventually some of the places at falls are reflection of it.
    Car entrance fee is 200 and for bike 50, minibus around 500. Individual entrance ticket is 20 rupees and some additional charges for Camera as well.
    From forest main entrance, you are allowed to drive till base camp where parking area, restrooms and small hotel for snacks available. There is a watch tower in between to have a look at the beauty of surroundings.
    From base camp, Trek starts along side of water stream. At starting point, there will be metal bridge to cross the water as depth will be there. After walking about 15 mins, will be reaching a check dam. Water storage upto 3 ft and this is suitable for all sort of crowd even you do not know swimming. When you move far, it may be deep, need to be cautious. Water was clear as i have travelled in the morning around 9 am, as and when it gets crowded, it gets dirty. This area is huge with lot of seating arrangements and to spend time. From there you will pass through lot of small and medium ponds along the water stream. Water is crystal clear, you can even consider for drinking. We will get to cross multiple places and you decide where to take a dip! As we move forward towards the fall, way becomes rocky and narrow. Last 100 to 200 mts of way is completely rocks, need to move from one to another, climb and so on. Hence, if you travel with elderly or kids, suggested to park your self somewhere in middle and not to go till the fall, unless they too adventurous 😊
    Expected good water levels during monsoon, winter also better(i went in January).
    Overall trek time is 4 hours up and down, 4.15 kmts with 138 meters elevation.
    This place is safe and can travel with you friends, family except the washrooms facility available only at parking area/basecamp. Carry your own food or get it parcelled from Varadaiahpalem. There is a small canteen at parking area as well and I have seen a board that they do supply meals on request.
    Transportation- prefer own (Car/Bike/Minivan ) Based on requirement. Public transportation Tada to Varadaiahpalem or Srikalahasti to Varadaiahpalem. From Varadaiahpalem appx about 13 kmts (30 mins drive due bad roads) need to hire a auto.
    Suggestion: Please do not carry any plastic, even you do, pls bring it back. Its our responsibility to keep these places clean and save nature. Without our cooperation, it makes impossible for government to make it happen.

    Activities were nice and interesting. We were a family visiting the first time.
    My teenager and toddler both enjoyed.
    It's not clean though. Loads of dust and dirt. Badly maintained place and staff did not appear to be well trained to assist you with the gears and i was a bit afraid if it's safe.

    A dream came true!
    -wishing to do this bike trip for years and with a small group of friends we had an awesome trip!

    I would like to thank and recommend "Date a Bike" for their extraordinary kind service! I barely cant wait to further trips, hopefully soon!!

    Date a Bike offers a wide selection of bikes and common for all bikes is that they are in a good maintained condition.
    Date a Bike will assist you to perfection, wherever you plan to ride on your own, or if you would like to join their reorganized trips.
    Furthermore Date a Bike offer riding gear as per your request, and even this is updated and in rather good condition!

    I can only express my full satisfaction!
    Thank you
