    Hyderabad to Nagpur Road Trip

    Thank you for the update
  4. Power naps help a lot during long drive. We can use Dhabas Toll booths Fuel stations I prefer busy dhabas, ideal for tea break as well.
  5. Excellent article, Thank you for sharing. I personally faced this issue, during Goa to Hyderabad drive. I hit the Hyderabad ORR( from Bangalore highway) around 3AM, First it was frequent blinking then, I can feel the blur setting in my eyes. Had to take the immediate exit and wash the face. Drove along the service road till Gachibowli. Joining Hyderabad ORR during late night drive can be a risky affair. Combined with 100kmph speed limit. 😡
  6. November is usually busy, it depends on the resort you are planning. I would suggest you to book in advance. Plan: Day:1 Hyderabad > Bangalore > Mysuru Hyderabad to Coorg is very hetic, split your plan. Day:2 Mysuru > Bandhipur > Coorg Start early in the morning and visit Bandhipur forest safari. Explore Coorg, commercial places. Day: 3 1. Mandalapati Jeep ride (Don't miss it, Start early in the morning from Coorg) 2. Abbey waterfalls (on return) 3. Rajas seat (on return) Day :4 Visit regular commercial places. Drive back to Mysuru in the evening and visit Mysuru palace Day: 5 Mysuru to Hyderabad

    Hyderabad to Kolkata Road Trip

    Actually Duster has much better lighting compared to other cars (stock). We did few night drives, no problem faced with lighting. Do share the pictures of Chilka lake, we missed it during our drive, due to time constraint.

    Day Trip to from Hyderabad to Bhuvanagiri fort

    Rachakonda fort is decent, early morning and winter is perfect time to visit. No entry required, carry a flask to tea/coffee along with water and have fun.
  11. In which month are you planning to drive from Hyderabad to Coorg?

    12 days trip across 6 South Indian states

    Usually , Hyderabad to Goa roads are bad. Recent rains made the situation degrade further. No need to worry, it will be more time taking. Drive time is around 14 hours, so plan accordingly. Start at 4AM in the morning, you can comfortable reach Goa by late evening. Hyderabad to Kalaburgai is good, from there you will come across speed bumps, potholes, village traffic. Avoid Ooty during weekends, Waynadu is known for accommodations. Book a decent home stay/ resort. Not worth more than a single day.

    Car Insurance Renewal

    Will go through the document once I get the policy in hand. Couldn't find any reviews/rejection rate information. But overall I felt they are decent enough for a 10 year old car with Engine and Gearbox coverage. Decent price.

    12 days trip across 6 South Indian states

    Hyderabad to Goa roads are bad. Ooty will be overcrowded during weekends. So plan in such a way that you reach Ooty during weekday. Muzhappilangad Beach, drive-in beach. You can drive on the beach. Attirapally waterfalls Alappuza Munnar Chikmagalur If possible skip Goa and the above places to your list. your must visit places form he above list?
