  1. Works out only if the no. of days are below three. I always prefer Pushpak(airport bus) when ever it is available. For people having late night flights, it is always better to drive your own car for short travel plans. I got a drowsy driver once. I had to keep him engaged through out the 40 minutes drive on ORR. He said he is driving from 0600 in the morning and got picked me up around 2300. 😮 It was a scary experience.

    Hyderabad to Leh by road

    No permits required, Just carry original documents. Vehicle should be registered on your name. If you are taking Delhi -> Srinagar -> Leh and while coming back you are taking Leh -> Keylong --> Manali no one will ask for permits. If you are taking Delhi --> Manali --> Keylong --> Leh. You need to take permits for Rohtang pass(permits will be available at Manali) Usually people will go via Srinagar and come back via Manali.

    Varanasi to Hyderbad

    I have no idea about Varanasi to Nagpur. But Nagpur to Hyderabad section is mix of good and bad roads. Once you cross Nagpur. There are plenty of bad patches till Adilababad. Adilabad to Hyderabad is pure joy. Beautiful roads!

    Hyderabad to Coorg road trip in Apr 2018

    I have visited Coorg in May(last year) Temperatures are too high. Coorg is best during monsoon and winter. But on the upside you can strike good deals with the accommodation. Apart from temples you wont find any places on this route. Coorg can be done easily in a single day, In my opinion break at Bangalore will cost you both time and money. Would suggest you to start early morning from Hyderabad. If you any queries/places to visit around Coorg, let me know..

    Short Trip Hyderabad to Nagarjuna Sagar

    Lovely pictures man. Nagarjuna sagar is my first long drive. It is always memorable place for me. Thank for reigniting those memories. I never heard of any place close to the dam?
  12. Andaman and Maldives are the best/economical places to visit for the beach lovers. Fantastic report Pinaki. I have visited Andaman last December, It was a very good experience. My next target is to visit Maldives.
  13. Download links Android Playstore This mobile App is for the National Highway Commuters of India, who wish to cross through a National Toll road in a pre-informed manner. The App also prevents frauds by way of overcharging by a Toll Plaza as it informs the user about the fee applicable. While on move, users can know the places of interest & Route to theses places if he/she wishes. The App tells real time waiting time at a plaza as at a particular time. Once the user crosses a plaza, he/she can also give feedback of his experience through the toll plaza. Key features 1. Nearby toll Plazas 2. Toll Plazas en-route 3. Fast-Tag 4. Know your highway 5. Report an issue 6. Report summery (issue tracker) 7. Near by (Hotels, hospitals, ATM and Fuel) Will give more details once I use the app. Overall app is impressive. Adding few screen shots. Home screen Near by works only on GPS, we cannot slect the place manually.

    Hyderabad ORR

    What happened to Gachibowli to Shamshabad section. Road quality went down drastically. Very bad maintenance. Also they increased the toll price from 20/- to 30/- Any information on fast-tag solution? Daily I'm waiting around 10 minutes at Gachibowli exit?

    Tirupati to Mumbai

    Stick to Bangalore route. Bangalore to Mumbai highway is excellent, you will have a stress free drive. Are you planning to do it in a single day? I would suggest a halt at Bangalore!
