    Hyderabad to Pune Road condition

    Thank you for the update. Overall road condition has improved a lot compared to previous years. Once the complete road is completed. I think one can complete Hyderabad to Pune in 8 hours comfortably.

    Hyderabad to Hinghanghat road trip

    There is only one single route as suggested by Sagar. Roads are completely safe and has less traffic compared to other highways. All the best and drive safe. Update us when you are done with the trip.
  14. Hi Pavan, Welcome onboard. In which you are planning for this trip? I have done Hyderabad > Tirupati > Hyderabad, last weekend. Roads are good throughout the drive. But the crowd is too high in Tirumala. (summer holidays) Plan accordingly. Between Hyderabad to Tirupati, you can cover Suryalanka/Chirala beach.

  17. Did a quick drive from Hyderabad to Tirupati. Roads are good through out the drive. We took NAM expressway. Hyderabad -> Nalgonda -> Miryalaguda -> Ongole -> Nellore -> Nayudupeta -> Srikalahasti -> Tiruapti Tirupati to Tirumala ghat section is excellent. Ghat section is closed between 12AM to 2AM both the routes. Ghat section now has a speed limit based on time. Alipiri to Tirumala time should be above 25 minutes. In Alipiri before entring the ghat section, one need to go through vehicle/luggage/human scanner Tirumala to Alipiri should be above 40 minutes Route from Alipiri to Triumala (newly laid)is excellent, compared to route from Tirumala to Alipiri. Both the routes are one way, token is issued at the entrance and will be scanned towards the end.

    Hyderabad to Hinghanghat road trip

    It is a 4-lane road. Road are good from Hyderabad to Adilabad. Once you cross Adilabad you will find few bad patches. There wont be any ghat section which is difficult to drive. You will come across few curves. Nothing alarming. Food options are very limited on this sections. Divya Restaurant : https://goo.gl/maps/sAg8pdaiKQ2V1sM76

    Hyderabad Goa Family trip

    Hyderabad to Goa can be done in a single day without any issues. But If you feel uncomfortable driving for14 hours, better to take a halt. Don't stop at Vijaypura. Stop at Hubli. Next day you can cover some place around Goa. Since Hubli to Goa is under 5 hours drive. In Hubli many stay options are available and well priced. Day1: Hyderabad to Hubli Day 2: Hubli to Palolem If you start from Hubli around 6AM, you will reach Palolem by afternoon. You will have time to relax in Goa from afternoon. Hyderabad to Kalaburgai, you will find some tolls, should be under 200/- Before entering Goa ghat section you have to pay around 250/-, only one time.

    Best route from Hyderabad to Guntur?

    Yes, they have opened it recently. You can drive straight to the temple. Don't take outer ring road. Once you cross the temple, right turn is blocked ( towards Prakasam barrage) Driver further ahead and take a u-turn. Avoid google maps in Vijayawada, it is a mess. Learnt lesson after missing the routes multiple times. Just follow the orientation.

    Best route from Hyderabad to Guntur?

    It is around 40 kilometres shorter according to Google maps, Drive time difference is 10 minutes. Piduguralla route is good, but not ideal for high speed cruising. Too many things happening on the NAM expressway. It is not elevated highway, like Suryapet section. There are too many village crossing, bikes and animals on highway. Last 60 kilometers is a mess. Only advantage? Vijawayada traffic can be avoided. Now the temple route is accessible, crossing Vijayawada using Prakasam barrage is easy.
