    Hyderabad ORR

    Clicked on December 10th. It is operational from December 11th. But I agree with your point. Specially busy exits like Shamshabad has just two/three operational lanes.

    Hyderabad-Jogg Falls-Murudeshwar-Gokarna-Hyderabd

    Avoid Raichur road, It is under construction. Only option is via Hyderabad --> Kurnool --> Alur --> Ballari --> Davanagere --> Jogfalls Going via Bangalore, it is too long. Not worth it. Usually, I would have suggested Hampi. But in December hotels are expensive in Hampi. If you don't mind the budget, Hampi is ideal stopover. We stayed in Clarsk Inn, last week. Hotel is good. Let me us know, what all places you are planning to explore. So that we can suggest options, which can fit 5 days plan.

    Hyderbad to Tirupati Best route?

    Even I felt the same. But both roads are fine. There is no drastic difference between the two, Given a choice, I would pick NAM expressway over Kurnool route.

    Hyderabad to Hampi road trip questions?

    Roads leading to Hampi are in bad shape. (both Via kurnool and Raichur) Hotels are expensive in December (Hampi peak season). Take the following route: Hyderabad --> Kurnool --> Alur --> Bellari --> Hampi Don't take Raichur road. It is under construction. We stayed in Clarks inn Hampi, It is decent.
  9. It was a wonderful trip. Had a great time. Would like to thank each and every member of the team for your contribution in making this drive memorable and fun. Coracle ride was a great experience. People on the first Coracle - I guess that was the highest ever noise in the history of Hampi. (Cave)🙏 Tripathi has been a great inspiration. Sticking on to the speed limits (80 kmph) and making steady progress. He reached most of the regroup points with in ~5 minutes of timeline. Compass team - Coordination was very helpful.(Roger, over and out) Ameo team - You guys are an inspiration for the couples. Innova team - You guys were super fun. Zero language barrier. 😀 Ertiga team - Thank you for taking the lead and coordinating with guide. EcoSport team 104 memories 🙏 FB album
  10. Welcome on board Adarsh. Thank you for posting the details. Very few people post after they are done with the trip. You information is definitely helpful for other members.

    Hyderabad to Ooty drive

    Welcome on board Kishor. Hyderabad to Ooty can be done in a single day. You need to stop very early in the morning. How many days you are planning? Ideal plan : Start early morning at 5AM from Hyderabad Reach Mysuru by evening Take accommodation in Mysuru Start early in the morning from Mysuru and visit Bandhipur Safari, early morning at 5AM start is must since it is over crowded in December. You may miss safari Mysuru to Ooty has two routes, take 36 hair pin route, it is shorter and adventurous to drive Regarding places to visit in Ooty tell us your number of days.

    Nagarjuna Sagar Drive

    Very nicely composed report. Swift in red looks fantastic. How is the stay? How much does it cost per night?
