Papi Hills or PapiKondalu (In Telugu language) is part of Eastern Ghats through which Godavari pierces and flows in twists and turns (called 'malupulu ' in telugu) towards east. Entire area of PapiKondalu is covered by tropical rain forests and deciduous rain forests.

The boat ride commences at Polavaram in summers because of low water levels and in Pattiseema at all other times. The boat ride leads you to countryside patch-worked with tiny farm plots, the landscapes dotted with tribal habitations, the river banks forested with the timber reserves, the fresh air and the deep river all blend tighter to make it a magic place. They present ideal settings to enjoy the nature. The beauty of the uncrowned spaces all along the river makes people stop and stare.Actual Papi Kondalu is a place where the width of Godavari is Narrowest less than a KM). From distance you would feel that both the hills are merging together however the boat cruises through the narrow width of Godavari and this is the best of the entire trip.

Small water falls, water streams,), thick rain forest and other flora and fauna adds to scenic beauty of PapiKondalu. A legend about Papi Kondalu is the Lord Rama and goddess sita dwelled here during the vanavasa.

Considerable percentage Telugu movies are shot in Rajahmundry and east Godavari district. (Papi Kondalu is important attractions for these movie makers). Ramadasu, Apadbhandavudu, Godavari, are few of the popular movies shot here. The boat takes you till Parentallapalli in Khammam district the abode of lord shiva.

Hai

Yes, I known how to reach Papikondalu from Rajahmundry it is situated in the middle of river godavari nearly 100 KM from Rajahmundry which is a centrally located place between Vijayawada and Visakhapatnam. Rajahmundry is nearly 165 KM from Vijayawada and 200 KM from Visakhapatnam. Godavari tourist guides are giving more information about its visitting places in around Rajahmundry, especially papihills. My self visitted with my friends Ravi, Srikanth, Sai etc., in group of 10 members to papihills by comfortable cruise and stayed one night on river bank Kolluru. Certainly, it is a very great place. We really enjoyed alot in two days by cruise, jungle walk, stream water, rock area. The tourist operator No. 8466823029 has given 100% service as explained before.

Papikondalu or pappi hills and kolluru house boats is a very dangerous place to visit. There is no provision to save anyone if some accident happens. No mobile connection or anything. I have heard many people get drown in Godavri river. There are no divers there and since you can only reach there by boat so you cannot even get help from outside. The so called house boats or tents are awful. There is no AC effect in the AC boats while going to and coming back from papikondalu to rajahmundry. Guys who are visiting the place have to be very careful. According to me one should not go to such places.
