A rather sleepy locale, Bhadrachalam awakes to life at the glorious occasion of Sri Ramanavami celebrations when large folks gather here to witness the holy wedding of Lord Ram and Sita.

The majestic Godavari River, which straps the city as a glistening festoon adds the serene and tranquil ambiance of this historic town. This holy river houses most of the sacred shrines of the town in and around its banks. Apart from its sacredness this riverbanks are a perfect place for enjoying a pleasant walk.

The most exciting part of the picnic would be the alluring voyage through the magnificent Godavari in a motorboat. The eight-hour journey through the crystalline waters, which replicates the surrounding greenery coupled with the natural warmth of the frisky wind, makes the boating in this holy river enchanting and refreshing. The itinerant sands of the river make the boating more lively. An overnight stay on the banks of the river in tents is really thrilling and is an added attraction of the boating.
