    So Xiaomi backed 70mai may have good quality.  


    Agree with your points, China is way ahead in technology now. We have to accept that fact. 

    Their quality improved a lot, they are value for money.


    YI, OnePlus..list goes on. They proved that they can provide quality at a decent price. Unlike overpriced American brands.

    Is it right time to visit?


    Evenings and mornings are good. Don't expect greenery. Grass is completely dry during our visit on feb. If it is a relaxing drive. Book a resort with view and enjoy. 

    If you are planning to explore, avoid till monsoon.

    Any recent road condition update from Hyderabad to Mahabaleshwar? 


    Hyderabad to Solapur is excellent except for 40 kilometres patch, road work under process. 

    Solapur to Mahableshwar is not so great. Most of it is a single lane road. But roads are manageable.

    Day - 1

    You can start with your visit with the heritage sites of the city by Golconda fort, Charminar, Mecca masjid, Chowmahalla palace and Birla temple.

    You can end your day with dinner at Paradise in Hitech city or Gachibowli which so every is close by their stay option.

    Day - 2

    You can plan a day out to Ramoji Film city and drive down to Faluknama Palace for dinner on a royal closing note for their visit to Hyderabad.

    Or a short drive to Bidar fort (mind you about the high temperatures outside)

    'The Minar' at Golconda resorts is also another good option for a night's dinner to give them an experience


    Excellent plan Sagar. I have to execute this plan for myself on some weekend.  Except for Faluknama palace. 

    Golconda fort is a must visit.  If it is on weekend, try to visit on Saturday. Sunday it is over crowded. Reach the place by 8:30AM. Fort opens at 9AM.

    Crowd will be very less and it will be peaceful.

  4. Gandikota changed a lot since my last visit. 

    I went there in 2014,

    Place is almost empty, we are the only people in Harita resort.


    Now it is very difficult to find an accommodation during a weekend. 

    It became very commercial.


    Camping is exciting.

    Hope ID team plans a meetup to Gandikota.

  5. New Home page looks better now. 😀

    Search on home page is a good move.

    It will be easy to navigate for the first timers.


    I know it is still under construction, because I can see updates every hour. 😛

    Can you add a help section, like password reset, how to join drives, how to subscribe for alerts etc.

    Sincere advice , if at all you are planning to take this road trip,

    I would rather suggest to drop the plan.


    This is the major problem with Hyderabad to Goa route.

    Always consider latest updates.


    I think this post is up to date. 

    This is very helpful for my office mates.


    If I hear Goa and road trip combo, I share this page.

    Hoping they will have a clue on which route to take. 


    It keeps on changing. Don't follow Google maps blindly.

    check the route options on this post and set the maps accordingly. 


    I would suggest members to update the page regular. Once you are done with the trip.

    It will help many readers. 


    Thank you.
