  1. I always start at around 3.30-4 am for any long drive to that matter. 1) I can easily pass through city traffic 2) Drive at this time after a nice nap will be fresh and will not feel tired at least until snack time, by then I will usually cover off the distance and reach my destination usually for the day (Anything around ~600-700 km's). No tiredness means no fatigue! 

     

    Also, the main benefit by starting at this time (since I do VJA / Anantapur most of the times) avoid heavy vehicles to the most. Buses reach their destinations already or the city outskirts which means no heavy traffic / head lights oncoming and very less truck traffic at this time.

     

    Fantastic Topic to discuss! Thanks @SK01

    Once you enter Hyderabad, take ORR and exit at Kompally. No need to go through city traffic. 

    Kandlakoy / Medchal Exit, there are no decent stay options here in this zone (Not for families at least) @Ranger Instead like you said best bet for @Dhananjay would be to halt around Gachibowli, take ORR again next day early morning and exit through Medchal exit and proceed towards Adilabad - Nagpur!!

     

    But the best possible itinerary would be halting at Hyderabad instead of Nizamabad so that you have plenty of options for decent stays / Breakfast joints and you will actually reach Adilabad for Lunch with current road conditions between Hyderabad - Adilabad.

     

    Please do update us once you are done with the trip!

     

    Happy and Safe Driving!! Hope this helps.

    Route – Belum caves – Banaganapally – Betham charla – Kurnool – Jedcharla – Hyderabad.

    Instead you should have taken Banaganapalle - Nandyal - Kurnool, it would have been even better, Internal roads between Banaganapalle - Betamcherla until you take left on to Orvakal is not so good with so many villages!

    For Darshan Upper Ahobilam temples we have to trek around 7 Km.

    Is this the same trek that leads to Ugra Stambham inside Forest? If yes, how tough was the trek level? can this be easily done by kids too? Heard mixed inputs on trek level for this destination.

  4. I would suggest this plan

     

    Day 1 - Hyderabad to Srisailam (on the way mallela theertham) 

    Day 2 - Start to Mahanandi as there isn't much around Srisailam and cover Mahanandi with overnight stay at APTDC / Haritha Mahanandi

    Day 3 - Start to Ahobhilam early morning, reach there finish off darshan's at both diguva and eguva Ahobilam and trek to old temple post lunch, return back to stay (try to book APTDC / Haritha Ahobilam)?

    Day 4 - Ahobhilam -- Hyderabad via Bangalore Highway

     

    You can also do this, this will be much easier

     

    Day 1 - Hyderabad to Srisailam (on the way mallela theertham) 

    Day 2 - Start to Mahanandi as there isn't much around Srisailam and cover Mahanandi (Check for temple timings) and proceed to Ahobilam with overnight stay at APTDC / Haritha Ahobilam

    Day 3 - Finish off darshan's at both diguva and eguva Ahobilam and trek to old temple post lunch, return back to stay 

    Day 4 - Ahobhilam -- Hyderabad via Bangalore Highway
