Papikondalu Boating (Explore Godavari & Papi Hills)




The Godavari River flows a distance of 1,465 kilometres, making it the second longest river in India, after the Ganges. The town of Rajahmundry is located on the banks of the Godavari River and the river is the widest at this point. Its width is about 5 kilometres from Rajahmundry to the otherside, where Kovvur is located. This mighty river is one of the main attractions of Rajahmundry.Three bridges span the river, and along its banks are several bathing Ghats and parks. The river holds a place of importance in the lives of Hindus, who believe in bathing in it once in 12 years to wash away their sins.Papi kondalu is a lovely place whose scenery resembles the scenery of Kashmir (North India).The beautiful scenery of Papi kondalu, the waterfalls at Munivaatam, and the peaceful atmosphere in this tribal area give a pleasant look and peace to visitors, making it a special attraction for tourists. The mighty Godavari river narrowing and passing with twists and turns along the Papi Hills is every visitor’s delight. To get the real essence of Papikondalu, one has to go for the boat journey either from Rajahmundry or Bhadrachalam. There are small motor boats with a capacity of five including the rider or River Streamers carrying about fifty to sixty people.
