    Hey @Pralay, there you go finally. Will soon add you in to the WhatsApp group.
  2. Hey Neeraj, The road conditions are more or less still the same. Hasn't seen much of a progress in this stretch.. which is still the only best option to reach Solapur. Drive between Naldurg and Solapur is the most bad stretch.
  3. You should definitely do this drive. It has it's very own unique beauty laid all over this place. But, the sun is always soaring high being close to the equatorial region. Sun and Salt are a dangerous combination

    Hyderabad to Sikkim road trip

    @Ranger I have also noticed some interesting food pictures that you have shared. Can you share the names of the local delicacies in the places you've toured.

    Interesting! Was it similar to the incident which we have experienced earlier at the Prashar lake ?

    Sunsets and Sunrise

    True, Koringa mangrove forest is one such place and I have explored the old Koringa village during my recent visit after ~3 kms from Yanam. It has a beautiful old bridge across the back waters which has access to only 2 wheelers (very narrow). I have enjoyed the sunset from the same. Check out the link below for the pictures.

    Lovely pictures @Krish How have you managed to get a boat at this place so early during the day and how much did he charge?

    Hyderabad to Spiti Valley, Himachal Pradesh.

    This was truly the best road trip we have done. Out of may road trips in Himalayas, this stands tall on our list till date. One should explore this place leisurely soaking in all the beauty by having at least 15 days in their sac.

    Hyderabad to Vijayawada highway updates

    I have seen this when I was getting close to the 7 restaurant around Suryapet. Out of my frequent travels in this route, I have noticed this only once. I guess there are no fixed locations to have this. The locations keep changing

    Hyderabad to Gottamgutta road trip

    That's nice but, the guard has warned you guys about the risk factor and hasn't restricted you based on rules is what I have understood. You should do a monsoon drive this August. It would be the best drive in your travel calendar this year

    Hi @S Kumar, Good to hear back from you after so long. As discussed above, no doubt about the route to be taken. But, I would recommend you to take any calculated risk by driving down this road during the late night hours as you are driving down with the family. I would rather recommend you to start by 4 am early in the morning and you would reach by noon. and for your drive back make sure you start by 12 or 1 PM on sunday after your lunch.

    Hyderabad to Gandikota - Camping

    Amazing pictures @Sridhar Tandra and too many of GAP is what I found in your pictures Thanks for those candid shots. I like the cute @pavanbandari picture too And Endeavour no doubt is a stunner not just on road but the drive as well. I felt a little wobble with Fortuner at certain speeds. Off-roaders for a reason

    Hyderabad to Gandikota - Camping

    Day - 1 (Contd.. ) All the members were set to explore the place by foot and capture the best of views at the campsite The huge red boulders added to the magnificent background and the landscape looked majestic. We have pitched our tents at our own private space overlooking the view of the Penna There were a lot other campers who have reached out to the same place. Disadvantages of being here during a weekend It was a pleasure to have the Fiat guys @Asher @prasadduggirala @ksa171983 tried their level best to make this pic look candid. Did I just spill out the beans guys? A few captures of the whole group before I had shut down the shutter on Day - 1. This was followed up by a long session of interactive session besides the Bonfire until 1 AM in the night This click is worth the memory of a lifetime to sac in
