    Hyderabad to Hampi Route updates

    Hello Piyush, this is the best route as the Bellary route is far bad. Just plan to start early and you should be able to cross Sindhanur earlier.

    Switzerland Trip

    For those of you who are planning to visit multiple European countries, the best way to explore is by Rail route. There are many rail operators including country specific railways which offer Railpasses to International Visitors, you can opt for one of these for seamless and affordable travel at convenience... e.g. Swiss Rail pass is sold in three/ four / eight / fifteen day validity and a kid below 16 years gets to travel free with a family card.. A few Rail operating Companies offer rail passes for multiple countries as a bundle do check out for these options..

    Hyderabad to Ooty road trip - Report

    Ooty will be overcrowded during the new year you may want to avoid unless you have booking done already. Try Kethi Valley should be relatively better n you would get Doddabetta peak views from there...
