Kerameri Ghats

The Utnoor-Asifabad route, 6 km long Kerameri ghat road near Kerameri mandal of which the Kerameri ghats are a part, is one of the oldest in the district passing through its tribal heartland.


The Kerameri hills, as seen from the popular Kerameri ghat road,
offer a breathtaking view as the landscape is changing colours layer by layer. The view starts with the dark green of the agriculture fields and turns into bright yellow of the drying leaves as the vision progress upwards.

The mountain range with a dominant blue at the top completes the picture casting a spell on the beholder. Descending the ghat road brings one closer to the clusters of trees which are changing colours.

Same is the case with the thick Sarkepalli forest in Wankidi mandal and the Malini forest in Sirpur (T) mandal where the jungles beckon with differently vibrant colours. A drive to Malini from Sirpur (T) mandal head quarter village will be an experience in itself in November.

The Kerameri watch tower offers a view as far as the hills near Asifabad.

If you want to know whether beauty encompasses danger, visit the picturesque Kerameri ghats in Adilabad district during the current season. The unfolding scenery during a drive on the curvy road is a visual treat, yet any lapse in concentration can result in a fatal accident.

Monsoon brings back greenery as vegetation thickens, especially on the margins of this single-lane road. The vegetation restricts the view considerably at almost all the bends on the 6-km-long road that starts at Busimetta camp and ends near Keslaguda in Kerameri mandal.

The top three bends can be dangerous on account of the scenic spread in the valley. No driver can afford diversion of concentration which can lead to a collision with an oncoming vehicle.

Drivers need to be more cautious while negotiating the one kilometre of the stretch at the lowest end of the ghats. This part is besotted with three ‘S' bends followed by two ‘U' turns, two ‘S' bends and two more ‘U' curves.

This section of the road has the wild lantana or pulikampa growing close to the margins on either side effectively restricting the view. These shrubs can be removed to do away with some of the danger.

By Road - They are number of buses from Hyderabad MGBS to Asifabad . From asifabad we can reach this place within 40min.

By Rail - Trains from Secunderabad to Nagpur stretch. Main stations to reach this place is Asifabad Road-ASAF, Sirpur Kaghaznagar-SKZR.
