    Hi Folks, Am a newbie to this forum.I just came to know about this forum when i saw the forum sticker on someone's car this morning.Just Googled it and signed up 😁.Seems lot of stuff available based out of Hyderbad and that's glad to feel excited because when it comes to automobiles/trips/long drives Bangloreans always stood in top as what i feel.No offense on our hyderabadi's here guys. I believe, very soon i will be regular reader/contributor for this forum. Now i urge you all folks to post your valuable suggestions . I used to go for long drives a lot on my beast(fiat Linea).I always thought to get relax from the regular routine works and job stress at-least once in year i.e,esp in December and now we are in this year as well..On the path,I went down to south India trips for last 3 dec's. Below are the places which i had done. 1.Bangalore (Visited multiple times and all we know this is the best to start down to south). 2.Mysore 3.Bandipur and Nagarhole national parks 4.Wayanad/Sulthan Bathery 5.Ooty 6.Kodaikanal 7.Coimbatore. 8.Coorg 9.Madhurai 10.Kanyakumari 11.Rameswaram 12.Trivendrum 13.Vellore golden temple 14.Kanchi 15.Mahabaleswar 16.Pondicherry 17.Varkala 18.Alleppy 19.Munnar 20.Lepakshi etc....etc...(Unable to recall few others 🙄) Now this year i just want to do a 5 day trip starting from dec 25th to 30th.Folks could you please suggest any best and fascinating places to visit and enjoy the relax break.Preferrably south is not in the top priority list this time but apart from the above list if any place is worth to visit please suggest .

    Hi @venkyasam, Welcome to the group! I do not see lot of major places yet on the list, you can cover Hampi, Vizag / Araku / Lambasingi / Maredumilli / Rampachodavaram, Orvakal / Gandikota / Yaganti / Ahobilam / Mahanandi, Nallamala Jungle Camps, Chirala / Machilipatnam / Kaikalur / Mopidevi / Hamsaladeevi / Kolleru, Chickmangaluru. These are the few places that I can remember in a flash after reading through your post! I shall circle back if I remember any other places apart from this? Also, provide more details like, if you are traveling with family / friends / car you use etc for more specific places to suggest! Hope this helps!

    Hey @venkyasam.. Good to hear it from a travel and auto enthusiast like you who is especially from Hyderabad 😊.. Welcome onboard. Looking at the list of places that you have covered seems like almost 80 percent of the South India has been swept which is amazing.. But having considered a time span of 5 days, forces one to limit towards southern India again.. 😁 A few suggestions that I would want to add up to your list to cover by drive if it has to be sound relaxed for a span of 5 days are as, 1) Hyderabad - Maredumilli / Papikondalu - Vizag - Chilka lake - Puri 2) Hyderabad - Shimoga - Jogfalls - Murudeshwar- Gokarna - Goa 3) Hyderabad - Pondycherry - Mahabalipuram - Danushkodi - Rameshwaram 4) Hyderabad - Chikamagalur- Kudremukh - Mangalore / Udupi / Malpe / St.Marys islands - Manipal 5) Hyderabad - Pune - Ahmedabad - Bhuj - Rann of Kutch (This will be too tight for a 5 day road trip) Would want to suggest to you on the places around the western ghats in Pune but it would be all dry grass in December. Monsoon or Post Monsoon would be the perfect time to do these western ghats around Pune

    Hey Manish, if all the other hotels are full, you can surely go with the Buddha beach resort which is the next decent resort on the Chirala beach after sea breeze 😊

    Heard mixed reviews for this place, but this is the only decent alternate to Sea Breeze. I am assuming you are not going with families? I mean at the end of the day, Buddha Beach is the only worthy alternate to Sea Breeze though!

    Only good option for stay in Chirala is Sea Breeze. It is even more famous and popular than the APTDC, Suryalanka. Since it is a weekday, try to see if you get accommodation! Prefer taking Beach facing stay. Also, check out for recent Cyclone impact in that region before going.

    Hello, Any update/advice for trip to Chirala Beach, AP.? As SuryaLanka Harita Resort is full, thinking of staying at Chirala. Tentative plan is to leave on Monday morning, and return by Tuesday evening. Rdgs, Manish

    Kurnool --> Alur --> Ballari Its 2 way road and many villages. You can expect many speed breakers. In some stretches you can go fast 100 KMPH. For me Bellary to Kurnool took 3 hrs. I did this on Dec 29th. From Alur to Bellari, except some 1 km and in 2 stretches, rest of the road is completed. Many people takes the below rout for Hampi. Hyderabad -->Mahbubnagar--> Raichur-->Sindhanur --> Gangavati --> Hampi Not sure about the road condition from Raichur-->Sindhanur --> Gangavati --> Hampi. Check the other posts in this site.
