Papikondalu mountain range runs along the River Godavari (Western Godavari) and is located in Rajahmundry, Andhra Pradesh. Papikondalu is a sheer fest to the eyes in terms of its scenic beauty. As the hills become closer and closer to the visitor, the width of the mighty Godavari becomes narrower. In accordance with this view resembling the middle partition of a woman's hair, it was initially named as 'Papidi' Kondalu- Paidi in Telugu means the middle partition of a woman’s hair. Later, it came to be known as Papikondalu in the local language. The river narrowing, its twists and turns along with the Papi Hills form a breathtaking visual experience.
The purpose of the program is to expose the YHAI members to a greater adventure and rough out the rigors of plodding through water with a sense of love for the Papikondalu, River Godavari and its recreational activity aiming at promoting National Integration.
The participants will enjoy a splendid panorama of Papi hills, refreshing with Holy river dip , beautiful landscapes; breath taking trees, the hilly steep and watchable with  close distance .
