    Fastag easy recharge

    Recently, from my personal experience, I have observed , if we move slowly of the last 15mtrs or so before the gate, the machine detects the tag easily and we don't have to reverse or move forward to get the tag detected. Hence we can save time. Most of the vehicles rush to the gate and it won't get detected. Moreover, I still see the non-fastag queue is very long at kamkole toll plaza most of the time.

    Hyderabad to Bhongir Fort - Breakfast drive report

    Haven't got a chance to visit bhongir fort yet, Its in my list now. Thanks for sharing the lovely pics and all the details everyone!!
  3. Thanks @BORNDRIVER . Yes, Omerga - Naldurg stretch is much better as compared 2019. Before Naldurg, you will get some double road without barricade but thats fine, condition of the road is much better. I did Lingampally to naldurg in 4hrs in Wagon R Have a safe trip !!
  4. Thanks for your comments Ranger and Sagar.. Wagon R 2019 CNG mileage is around 30KMs on highway. One full cylinder can cover 240KM easily.
  5. This is my first proper post after being member of this great group. Please feel free to suggest any correction or enhancements needed. Total distance : 726Km Vehicle : Wagon R 2019 Fuel : CNG+Petrol No of Days: 1.5 days Single Driving. Toll : 520/- Route : BHEL (Lingampally --Humnabad - Basavakalyan -- Omerga -- Naldurg -- Solapur-pune bypass- Mohol -- Pandharpur Roads Naldurg are in awesome condition now, other than minor bad patches where flyovers are being constructed, you will find few speed breakers there. Beyond Naldurg, if driving at night, have to be careful about small potholes where construction is in progress but mostly road is complete upto Solapur. Day -1 Started from Lingampally at 5PM in the evening. First break at 9PM for dinner @ Hotel Sai Prasad , just before Naldurg Was back on road at 10PM, Reached Pandharpur at 12:30AM. Checked into Hotel Balaji Lodging in front of Railway station. Very clean hotel. Parking for 3 or 4 cars available. I was lucky, got the place to park. Day-2 Got ready early for Darsan in Vitthal Rukmani temple. There are ample parking place around the temple. I found one big parking ground near Shivaji chowk. Had to walk 650mtrs for the temple. One can hire auto too. Vitthal Rukmani temple is very very famous in Maharastra but it was less crowded on that day, so we were able to finish darsan in couple of hours. Had breakfast and then went to Isckon temple which is on the other side of the chandrabhaga river. Nice place and there is a nice vegeterian restaurent available there. Had Gujrati lunch at 35th Mahaprabhuji baithak pandharpur and then started towards Tuljapur at 1:15PM. Route : Pandharpur -- Mohol -- Solapur ring road -- First major exit towards Tuljapur : Distance 114KM. Can be covered easily below 2 hrs. Solapur to Tuljpur road is also toll road -- 60 rs one way We reached Tuljapur around 3PM and immidiately went for Darsan in Tulja bhawani temple. Completed darsan around 4PM . Were back on the road around 5PM. Stopped for tea break before going out of Tuljapur. Stopped at hotel Sai Prasad for a break and had some snacks and tea. After than we directly stopped at Hotel Gujrat at 8:30PM just outskirts of Basavakalyan. Food was very good. Price is very cheap. Good washroom, although not very clean. Enough parking place. there is factory owned HP petrol pump there. Started from there at 9:15PM and reached Home(Lingampally) at 11:45PM. Distance :162KM Parents were happy that they got blessings at these two famous temples on their 40th Anniversary i.e.22nd January, which makes me equally happy. Will try to upload few pics soon in the coming post.

    Hyderabad to Shirdi road condition 2019

    I too recommend Sai Prasad just before Naldurg. Washrooms are clean , Outside sitting is available. Very good service . Tried Paneer Manchurian , it was awesome. Prices are very cheap if you see the quality of the food. Visited couple of days back only.
  7. Hi Murali, I would suggest you to take diversion from Mohol, rather than travelling upto Indapur. I travelled through indapur-Baramati-Phaltan for onward journey and found it not good but I liked Wai - Phaltan - Pandharpur - Mohol route which I took while returning! Roads till Phaltan are better than average. Its double road with moderate traffic.Phaltan - wai is single lane, not too bad road. Moreover, One can visit , Mapro food park just out of Wai and spend an hour there, they have a nice restaurent, Organic Vegetable shop and they have some free factory tour as well. Thanks
  8. @RoadTrip Loved the details of your entire trip and pics are also superb. Thanks for sharing. Can you please share the overall cost of this entire trip ? Just an approximate cost.

    Meet-up ride

    Any plans to have a meet up drive soon ? Kindly share if any.
  10. Hi Sahil, I completed Hyderabad-Mahabaleswar trip day before yesterday. Let me try to answer your queries. 1. Best Route : BHEL - Zaheerabad - Humnabad - Solapur - Mohol - (Take left from Mohol) - Pandharpur - Phaltan - Wai - Panchgani & Mahabaleswar . ( You will find more than 80% good roads ). 2. You will get lot of strawberries in December and you can directly pluck them in the fields. Moreover you will get great views from each view points. Clear blue sky all the time. Temp around 12-15 Degree at night. 3. We stayed in Evergreen Holidays ( 3kms from Mapro Garden towards Mahabaleswar) , Got a very good price since it was weekday. From Dec 21st, the prices of the hotels will be high for year end. 4. Metgutad and Bondarwadi are the places, you will get less prices for sure. Moreover, I would suggest anyone to travel to Mahabaleswar and Panchgani after Jan 10 till March end, to get the cheapest prices for hotesl and Sweetest Strawberries. Its off-season time there, confirmed by the property where I stayed. If you need any more information, I can help.

    Hyderabad Goa Family trip

    Hi Ranger, Thanks a lot for your valuable inputs. I am going for a 4 day trip. To be very frank, I am still thinking about this long drive( from BHEL to Palolem) which, I don't think, I can cover in a day. I must take a night halt in Vijaypura and then next day I can proceed towards Goa as per your advised route. What would be the approximate travel cost, including Fuel and Toll for both ways please ? Thanks in advance!
