Hopping a Ride on a Rickshaw

If you are going to catch a ride with the 3 wheeled taxis, also known as auto rickshaws, the most important thing to remember is that they don't carry meters. Make sure you clearly agree on the price before you get in. Prices vary by the distance you are going to travel, and can vary widely. If you don't mind doing a little bargaining, however, these little taxis can be a convenient way to get around.

On the River

If you want to see the nearby Papikondalu Hills, a beautiful tourist attraction, leave land behind and travel on one of the steam boats. Rides on the steam boats typically include your meals, and the tour guides will help you to understand the significance of what you are seeing. In addition to the beautiful scenery, the Papikondalu hills contain a small temple to Shiva which is worth a visit.
