    Well planned. Looks good. Check Airbnb for beach view accommodations. Do share a post on your trip. Wanted to visit Mangrove forest. There are plenty of options available on these sections no need to worry about food. Do advance bookings, since it is long weekend/holiday season. Al the best for the drive. Drive safe.

    Hyderabad -- Nagpur -- Chindawada -- Seoni -- Nagpur -- Jabalpur -- Umaria -- Beohari -- Sidhi -- Ranukoot -- Varanasi. This is one route available from Hyderabad to reach Varanasi. Or els, You can stick to NH7 which will direct you straight to varanasi . Road condition around Sidhi is not good as per present status. My personal suggestion is to stick to NH7 if you are travelling for the first time instead of taking the complicated route between the forests of Madya Pradesh which might be unsafe.

    Definitely an inspiration for people like me. A great way to celebrate. Would love to see more from you. Hyderabad to Solapur hotel options are very limited. Finding a decent option is very difficult.

    Hyderbad to Goa has multiple route options. Once we ended up on a mud road for 50 kilometers. We missed few turns and the route was horrible. Don't trust Google maps. Mark each and every town en-route and use Google maps. This way you won't miss the route. Gangavati is the safest option. I have driven to hampi on that route. Road condition is good.

    Hyderbad to Goa route is always a mess. Each year a new route shows up on the Google maps. If you miss the single turn you will end in Village roads. We are following this route from the past few years. It never disappointed us. Hyderabad to Goa Best Route (2017) : Noth Goa Hyderabad --> Raichur -->Sindhanur--> Gangavathi --> Hubli --> Dharward --> Belgavai --> Chorla --> Mapusa --> Goa Hyderabad to Goa Best Route (2017) : South Goa Hyderabad --> Raichur -->Sindhanur --> Gangavathi --> Hubbali --> Dharward --> Mollem --> South goa

    The next day, we checked out after some delicious complimentary breakfast at the resort The drive was set to visit Pattakadal and Aihole which has the ancient sites of age-old temples and ruins. The distance from our start point to Pattakadal was 20 kms which took us 30 mins. The road condition is self explanatory now. The entry fee to step into this world heritage temple complex is INR 5/- per person This temple complex is very well maintained by the Karnataka tourism department which is quite evident Mallikarjuna and Kashivishwanatha temples Papanatha Temple Jambulinga Temple which was probably built in the mid of 7th century A.D Sangameshwara Temple Virupaksha Temple Pattakadal can undoubtedly be called as the cradle of Indian architecture as it showcases the best works of the Chalukya period We drove towards Aihole from Pattakadal to visit this Durga temple and its beautiful architecture which is about 14 kms All set and done after the Aihole visit, we fastened our seat belts and drove back to Hyderabad. We had reached home by 6:00 p.m. to rest down and experience the Monday blues at work

    All these main temples elevated at different levels are connected by 50 to 100 steps carved between each other The third rock cut temple of Lord Vishnu seemed most majestic inside a 100 feet deep cave. The area surrounding the caves was well built by Red sand stone all over which also has the space to rest down and spend time As we climbed up to the top most level of the Jain temple, we overlooked to this beautiful sight of the 'Agasthya' lake surrounded by the Badami caves, hills, Boothnath Temple and the village houses. We got down the Cave temple and moved towards the 'Agasthya' lake and the 'Bhoothnath' temple which is 1.5 kms from the caves. These temples were dedicated to Lord Shiva Not just being carved at this absolutely scenic location, it also has a lot of rock carvings and caves around This cave behind the Bhoothnath temple is related to the 6th century Jainism which has carving of Jain Tirthankars. One last pic of the day before we headed back to the resort

    Execution:I always prefer staring on time especially when I have a schedule to keep. It was 5 a.m. in the morning and the drive started off quite pleasantly as we cruised onto the beautiful ORR and then onto the sweet NH7 tarmac. We took a diversion from Bhuthpur towards Mahbubnagar and the road started to deteriorate as we got off the Bangalore Highway. We stopped by a small hotel in Mahbubnagar around 7 a.m. for breakfast and continued our drive over the 2 lane road which started to get better again once we crossed Mahbubnagar town. First click of the day at the rise during our drive 2 hours of drive, we crossed the Telangana border to enter Karnataka state and headed towards Raichur. This was where the drive further took a lot of time reason being potholes, bad road patch works and frequent speed breakers throughout until we had reached Badami. So essentially our average speed throughout this path after we had crossed Raichur ranged around 80 kmph. I will let the pics do the rest of the talking until our adventure drive marked its end back at the start point. The bridge built over the flowing Krishna river connects the two states (Telangana and Karnataka) A drive further, we pass by the 'Raichur Thermal Power Station' This plant today represents the backbone of the European power system. Experimenting my creative side, tried capturing this really massive industry in a single frame We drove by this two lane road throughout until we had reached Badami (via Hungund) We passed by this historical fort of Mudgal on our way
