  1. Hyderabad to Hamsaladeevi Beach - A hidden Paradise After a long wait for the December trip, we kick started our vacation to the most beautiful Hamsaladeevi beach located in the Krishna district, Andhra Pradesh. Usually many of them skip this place due to lack of accommodation, but you will find a decent stay in Vijayawada which is around 80 kms approximately from Hamsaladeevi. It is definitely worth travelling so far to see the beauty of this Sagara Sangamam, where river Krishna meets the Bay of Bengal. We started at an early hour from Hyderabad and reached Vijayawada by 10 AM and checked into the OYO hotel. There are no food joints available at Hamsaladeevi beach so we packed the lunch from the hotel and headed out. Vijayawada to Hamsaladeevi drive took us 3 hours with some breaks. Hamsaladeevi village is 24 kms away from Avanigadda and we reached Hamsaladeevi by 3 PM. After a long drive from Hyderabad, there was an adrenaline rush gushing out to see this most beautiful place and couldn't wait to snap the sandy beach and the 'river-beach' meeting point. This point is 2 km away from the beach (From Hamsaladeevi village, beach is 4 kms) and we drove our car on the beach side shore to the port to see the confluence. Distance : 376 km Ride: Honda City Fuel : Petrol Mileage : 15 kmpl Hotel : OYO rooms (2000/- per night) Best Route 2016 Hyderabad --> Suryapet --> Vijayawada -->Pedapulipaka --> Madduru --> Thotlavalluru --> Nimmagadda --> Avanigadda --> Nagayalanka --> Chodavaram --> Hamsaladeevi Beach Note: Don't take any diversions from the mentioned route else you might end up between bad conditioned roads and longer distances as you pass

  8. Planning: It was October 2016 when we started planning for a long road trip. It was my wife's idea of visiting a cold place (if possible, snow fall) in winter, and subsequently we ended up talking about Manali (obvious choice of transport being, ROAD ). Idea was shot down by colleagues and friends, saying 2200KM drive one-side is no joke. Having experience of driving 17 hours a day couple of times, I knew that 3-day drive to Manali was pretty much possible. When started planning, things started to look easy - one of the key aspect of this journey was choice of stops. Upon deciding stops, stay, and places to visit, there was no stopping. In general, I would love to have best possible weather when I hit the road (my usual search query on Google being "where is it raining in India?"). In this case, we knew that fresh snowfall would happen at most 4-5 times in entire season, and we finalized dates trusting Accuweather data. Places planned to visit: Manali, Shimla, and Auli (tentative). THE reason to travel: To witness snowfall (Yes, we did!) Dates: 20/01/2017 to 01/02/2017 (Based on weather prediction three months before) Drive: Ford Ecosport 1.5TDCi Number of people: 3 (Driver: Only Me! ) Preparation: Being very particular about vehicle maintenance, I got everything checked (also, 2nd service was due around the same time) a week before our drive. One major problem we previously faced was light throw from headlights (OSRAMs) - I finally decided to replace with with Philips X-treme Vision Plus H4 (+130%), and they are amazing! Protective clothing: 2 layered snow-proof jacket, thermals, multi-position headband, two layers of gloves (much needed at sub-zero temperatures). Medicines: Few strips each for headache, cough/cold, fever, indigestion, and vomiting. Food: Figured out that there won't be many restaurants (especially in MP and UP). Hence, carried home-made protein bars, instant-noodle packs, juices, etc. Other things carried: Mini air compressor, 2 umbrellas, hiking pole, whistle, and 25L jerry can (and funnel). Route and Itinerary (NH44 all the way, from Telangana till Punjab) 20 Jan: Hyderabad to Sagar (MP) 21 Jan: Sagar (MP) to Greater Noida 22 Jan: Greater Noida to Manali 22 - 26 Jan: Places around Manali 27 Jan: Manali to Shimla 28 - 29 Jan: Shimla 30 Jan: Shimla to Agra 31 Jan: Agra to Nagpur 1 Feb: Nagpur to Hyderabad Day-1: (Hyderabad to Sagar - 884KM) State: Telangana It was a key decision that we had to make about 1st stop, and the choice was between Chhindwara and Sagar (considering good places to stay). We were all super-excited the night before; woke up at 4am, and hit road by 4.30am. Roads were flawless till Adilabad, and roads turned ugly (not even bad) the moment we crossed Telangana border - it was stark difference, and a badly shaped bridge welcomed us in Maharashtra. State: Maharashtra Road construction was happening on NH44 (for betterment, I'd guess), and it was not so pleasant (at the same time, not eventful) driving in MH. We crossed Nagpur 1.15pm and stopped for lunch as soon as we entered MP. State: Madhya Pradesh Tarmac turned super smooth the moment we entered MP - driving on SH 547 was pleasant experience (we passed some hills in between). No wonder MP has some of the cleanest cities in the country - one could judge the same by looking at their roads. We crossed Chhindwara around 4.30PM, and reached destination (Sagar) by 7.45PM. We could already feel the cold that night (not so much, though); had dinner and called it a day. It was a great day overall (not eventful). It was relatively long day for us in the car (~900KM), and we intentionally front-loaded much of distance on day-1.
  9. Total Trip Distance: 588 Kms - Home to Karimnagar: 166 kms - Karimnagar to Vemulawada: 36 kms (one way) - Karimnagar to Dharmapuri: 80 kms (one way) Vehicle: Hired a XUV 5OO from Revv Self drive cars (Couldn’t take my own car (SX4) as its tyres are not in a great condition, I don’t plan to get them changed as I am planning for a new car in the next two months – and this is the precise reason why I am not joining the drives planned in this forum. Hopeful to get my new car in the next couple of months and be a part of the India-drive motorcade J) Travelers: My family of 5 adults (3 senior citizens) and 1 child Routes taken: Onwards journey: (Rajiv rahadari – 4 lane highway with two tolls Rs 50 and Rs 51 single way) Hyderabad -> Shamirpet -> Duddeda -> Siddipet (by pass) -> Karimnagar Karimnagar to Vemulawada: Karimnagar -> Siricilla road -> Vemulawada Karimnagar to Dharmapuri : (NH563/NH63) Karimnagar -> Kondagattu -> Jagitial (by pass) -> Dharmapuri A big thanks to gowtham for suggesting this road. Return journey: (Rajiv rahadari) Karimnagar -> Siddipet (by pass) -> Duddeda -> Shamirpet -> Hyderabad Day 01: Started leisurely at 10 AM from home and it took us one hour to reach shamirpet due to moderate / heavy traffic around Jubilee Bus Station – Bolarum stretch. Got onto Rajiv rahadari and from there it was a breeze. Didn’t consciously cross 110 Kmph as my little one was playing in the car and wanted to avoid sudden breaking. Took a tea break at 11:45 AM for 20 mins. The four lane road was excellent all throughout barring some small stretches where the road expansion is in progress (nothing major though). Finally reached Hotel Swetha (thanks again to gowtham for suggesting the place) in Karimnagar around 01:15 PM. Checked in, had lunch and took an afternoon nap. Left the hotel at 5PM for Vemulawada. Took the Siricilla road and reached the temple by 6 PM. This road ranges from good to average (no major bad or worse stretches). One can easily cruise around 80-90 kmph. The only thing to watch out for is the TSRTC bus drivers trying to overtake other vehicles and local auto / tempos are always erratic on the road. Had a great darshan and started back around 7 PM. Reached Karimnagar around 8:10 PM and my family wanted to have a light dinner so we were looking for some south indian tiffins and as luck would have it we ended up in place called Sri Geetha hotel. This decision was a bad mistake – it was substandard food and sick ambience. When we started from Hotel Swetha in the evening, I missed checking out Hotel Prathima (which is like 400 m away from Hotel Swetha) due to traffic. And this costed us heavily. While returning from Sri Geetha when we saw Hotel Prathima with an hoarding highlighting 99 varieties of Dosa we all knew what we missed J. Went back to Hotel Swetha and retired for the day. Day 02: Was planning for an early start but could only manage to start around 9:15 AM from Hotel post breakfast. Took the NH563/NH63, it’s a decent two lane highway was able to do speeds of 100 – 110 kmph in some stretches. Had a scare near a village called Kalleda, I was cruzing at a speed of 90 kmph and spotted a 3 wheeler cargo auto trying to cross the highway. I honked and flashed my headlight to let him know that he should stop and let me go. He did stop for a moment and I thought he will wait and didn’t break but suddenly he decided he should cross before me. I honked again, he stopped again only to start again, left with no option I had to break hard and hoped ABS / EBD everything would work. And they did, I only had to get off the road to miss hitting him. I think there were only 5-8 inches gap between the vehicles during the crossing point, yes! it was a close shave. I first checked with my family if they were fine. Luckily my daughter was playing and hugging my wife when this happened so she didn’t get hurt. I got down absolutely furious and rushed towards the auto and what I saw completely baffled me. There were 4 people in that small auto cabin and the driver was not able to turn the handle neither break. He gave me sheepish smile and apologized profusely. I somehow controlled my anger and just reminded him that the scene now would have been completely different had he done this with a lorry or a bus. He again apologized. Finally reached Dharmapuri around 10:30 AM. Paid the ‘Panchayat entry’ toll of 50 bucks and was asked to head into a narrow lane that would lead to temple / parking. It was indeed a very narrow lane and was difficult to drive when another vehicle came in the opposite direction. To add to it there are open drains so one mistake and you can find your car wheels in the drain. Finally found a parking space for the XUV in those narrow lanes. Visited the temple had some special puja’s performed and started back around 12:00 PM for our next destination – ‘Kondagattu’ – the famous Hanuman hill shrine in Telangana. Kondagattu is around 47 kms from Dharmapuri and took me 45 mins to reach. Had a quick darshan and started back towards Karimnagar around 01:15 PM. Reached Hotel Swetha in next 40 mins and had a good lunch trying out some local (Telangana) non-veg food. Posted lunch rested for about 40 mins and started back around 4:30 PM. Reached Hyderabad around 6:45 PM and got stuck in the Bolarum – Secunderabad traffic. Finally reached home around 7:45 PM. Accommodation & Food info: - Places to stay: Hotel Swetha / Hotel Prathima - Places to eat: Hotel Swetha / Hotel Prathima / Hotel SilverOak - Food: My personal take is you get quite good non-veg food in these restaurants and vegetarians might be a little disappointed with the quality of food I couldn’t shoot many pics on this trip as my daughter was gunning for my phone as soon as I used it to click snaps. So to keep her tantrums in check decided not to use my phone a lot.
