    A solo road trip to Hampi!

    @Pralay I saw you saying 4 days for this trip and you have updated day 1 (Drive) day 2 morning and evening treks and Day 3 return is it? I mean 4th day was not utilized in this plan, is my understanding right or am I missing something here? Also, can you help us with the details and cost of the hotel you stayed in Hampi? Approximate toll costs on your route while going and returning? Your return route was also the same?

    Hyderabad ORR

    I heard that Fast Tag will be a mandatory thing just like Insurance, Road Tax etc from the dealer when someone is buying a car from May 2019 (Basically from the beginning of BS 6 norms).

    Hyderabad to Sikkim road trip

    Did Duster slip / struggle at any point on this entire stretch @Ranger in spite of the AT's that you have had? I am sure it must have at one point or the other looking at the intensity of snow / Ice on the roads! How did you manage at those stretches in case if you have come across one?

    Hyderabad to Gandikota - Camping

    Thanks @Ranger It is a beast on our roads Gowtham, never had any issues with any kind of roads / potholes on the Betamcherla stretch. We never felt those potholes inside the cabin. noise level inside the cabin was also very less. Tried high speeding once while returning on the NAM between Orvakal and Kurnool to see how stable it is and It was rock steady even at 180 kmph and cruised without any issues. I felt a little shaky at 180 kmph and when rain started to pour while on wet roads and bought down the speeds gradually to see where the vehicle gets stability, it was around 150 kmph when I felt back the confidence on wet road. Overall, Endeavor is as tough as it looks and equally comfortable inside. Last row is a little cramped yet comfortable compared to various other cars we have in the market but need to compare it with Fortuner when I get a chance. The automatic gearbox works like a champ with almost no lag around any shifts with beautiful pull over. Will have to drive Fortuner for similar amount of time to understand the difference. It returned us about ~11+ km / liter on the kitna deti hai front which I felt is impressive overall with various road conditions and speeds we drove on.

    Hyderabad to Araku valley and Vizag.

    True! Even I was under the same assumption and checked with them to plan a trip with family, but changed my mind after looking at that quote!

    Hyderabad to Araku valley and Vizag.

    Too costly and not worth it @sagar I tried contacting the organizers to see what are they up to and ended up with a Europe trip on mind after looking at their pricing.
