    Avoiding Fatigue During Long Drives

    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

    HYDERABAD to GOA - Best route at present?

    I did Hyderabad to Goa on October 09, 2019 in Bus. Jadcherla while going in VRL and Zaheerabad while returning in Paulo. Please avoid Jadcherla - Raichur road at all costs!! Zaheerabad - Kalburgi - Sindagi - Bagalkot is the best route currently.

    Hyderabad to Nagpur Road Trip

    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.

    Hyderabad to Varanasi road

    @Indrasen Looks like you got the answer already, hope this helps
  6. Got it, so this is the toughest part!
  7. Fantastic log with some good latest updates on road conditions @SUBBU1 Thanks for sharing the information back to the group! 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! 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.

    Hyderabad To Nuzvid

    Hi @BAK Welcome on board! I prefer VJA road to Nuzvid personally, Khammam roads are uncertain with lot of patch works and road works going on!
  19. It is good, you take regular Hyd Srisailam while going and take Dornala - Atmakur route while returning on your way towards Mahanandi, there is an alternate route which goes through Dornala - Giddalur but take Atmakur route to get on to Nandyal road which I feel is faster and better
  20. 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
