I am an engineer by profession but have a special inclination towards trekking and travelling. In the last vacation, we trekked the Horsley Hills. It was a unique experience that I wish to share with my readers.
About The Place

Activities You Can Enjoy At Horsley Hills
Adventure seekers like me are sure to love this tourist destination. You can enjoy various diverse activities like rappelling, trekking, hiking and similar other activities.
If you are a typical tourist and wish to visit the routine tourist location, I have some suggestion for you. You can choose to visit the Gurramkonda from here. It is roughly 50kms from the Horsley Hills. It is a fort and a common tourist destination.
This fort is said to be built by the Golconda Sultans. The name of the fort ‘Gurramkonda’ literally means Horse Hills. Horses are supposed to guard the fort. The fort is literally impregnable.
Mallamma Temple is yet another religious tourist attraction you cannot miss out on your trip to the Horsley Hills. The temple was constructed by the Veerashaiva Reddy Samaj in the year 2010. It is the location where the holy water flows.
