    It is possible, since roads are good. But it is not suggestible. I think it should take around 20 hours, if you are comfortable with that, nothing like it. Reason, I am suggesting to stay in Salem/Dindigul? You can enjoy the uphill drive next day. A fresh start, early morning dive in ghat section is more fun. I am planning to do a solo drive to Dhanushkodi from long time. Your trip can be helpful for me (with latest information). Please share us your daily progress(on this post), once you start.

    Hyderabad to Coimbatore

    4AM is decent. Bangalore traffic is the Major hurdle. If you get stuck you will waste lot of time. But it is unavoidable.
  3. Thank you for the update. Looks like all the roads leading to Goa are in bad shape. Better check the details about road closure before going.

    Difficult to do it in a single day. Can be very hectic, since you are doing a solo drive. I would suggest you to stop at Salem. Also you can skip Kanyakumari, unless it is a check list. Instead of Kodikanal, I would suggest you to visit Munnar.

    Visakhapatnam to leh ladakh

    Your highest solo trip till now? Should not be a problem for bike. Budget varies from person to person. Fuel, Food and Accommodations are major. If it is your first long ride, I would suggest you to take your bike via train.

    Hyderabad to Coimbatore

    It is completely 4-lane toll roads. Roads are good through out the drive. Can do it in a single day. If you are a single driver, take a nap once you cross Bangalore. Roads are good to drive even during night. Start early in the morning from Bangalore. Hyderabad to Bangalore https://www.india-drive.com/index.php?/topic/217-hyderabad-to-bangalore-highway-route-and-hotel-updates/ Bangalore to Coimbatore: You can find plenty of decent hotels on highway.
  7. Very helpful information. Thank you for sharing the information. It will be helpful for other members. How much time does the trek take, Is it difficult?

    Sorry for this post🙂

    Nothing can beat Maruti in terms of fuel efficiency. Swift > Scross > Venue Hyundai's are not known for fuel efficiency. They are decent but not in the leagues for Maruti.
  9. Thank you for the update. Till Belgaum, stick to the Zaheerabad route. From Belgaum instead of taking Choral route, take Dodamarg road. I think the above user is driving to Panjim. If you are driving to Baga side, you can avoid Chorla ghat. If possible verify the road condition at the check posts.
  10. You can visit Hamsaladeevi beach. https://www.india-drive.com/index.php?/topic/36-hyderabad-to-hamsaladeevi-beach-a-hidden-paradise-andhra-pradesh/ Yes, Go via Vijayawada. How many days you are planning?

    How to get Fast tag for highway tolls

    Shared by : Amit Jain One of the hassle with icici fastag is that you have to maintain a separate account. There is an easy way to reload your fastag on the go using upi: netc.yourvehiclenumber@icici Example : netc.ts07xx1234@icici You just need to ensure that your vehicle number is updated or linked with that fastag.
  12. Flowing is best route: During recent rains most of the roads are damaged, but I heard they were cleared. Roads may not be in a good shape. Plan accordingly. Start around 4 AM in the morning, you will reach comfortably by evening. Hyderabad --> Zaheerabad -> Humnabad -> Kalaburagi -> Jevargi -> Vijaypura -> Bagalkot -> Belgaum -> Chorla -> Panjim

    Hyderabad to Singur dam roadtrip

    Thank you for the update. Water levels look pretty low even during monsoon. This is the best part, it is safe near the circular well. Many of our members have been there with their families. I am not sure about evenings but early mornings it is a good place.
  14. Very helpful information. Beautiful pictures. Thank you for sharing. What exactly is the tyre issue that you faced?

    Hyderabad to Sikkim road trip

    I would say, it is better than Spiti valley. But the problem is timing, In December this terrain is difficult compared to Spiti (in summer, Monsoon)4x4 with snow chains is a must in December.  Yeah Around 4~5k We got them a day before the trip NE is opposite to commercial. My next trip would be somewhere around Arunachal Pradesh. At least in December, very few tourists. Our car is the only self drive car. Most of them are cabs, very limited in number.
