Hyderabad to Sikkim road trip : Four BTech friends, Proper reunion after a decade. Crossed two borders, (Nepal and Bhutan) Drove around 5.5k kilometres. Hanging around with old friends and saying "Remember when..."(15 days of memories) Trusted steed
Hello fellow enthusiasts, Recently I was on a road trip to Goa and enjoyed a lot. The hunger of being on road never ends, so with some long discussion with my better half and parents, we came on a decision to take a Road Trip to Bhutan. The plan is set, dates are fixed and I have started working on the itineraries. The chosen month is April, as very less time is left, I am turning to you guys to suggest me the required preparations for the trip. We would be four travellers, the vehicle would be Hyundai Xcent SX 2016 model with less than 10K on it. As it is my parent's car and is mostly driven by the driver, I'd be getting everything serviced. The trip would start from Jabalpur (M.P) to Thimphu (Bhutan) to Jabalpur (M.P). An approximate total of 3500Km, plus 300km miscellaneous. I have some questions and would really appreciate if get the answers from the experienced people of this forum. 1. Best route? 2. How many halts? 3. How many days in Bhutan (West)? 4. Luggage Carrier, would it be an issue for a sedan? 5. Luggage Career Vs Roof Box, which is better? 6. IceBox, is it required? That's it for now, sure would have many more questions later. ~Sam
With being a part of the India-Drive family, i started thinking of exploring the driving and did my first Ooty trip, alas i could join the India-Drive family but the planning was all done and hence had to go in advance. The enthusiasm has prompted me to plan a road trip to Bhutan and started of on the planning phase with route and hotels and sightseeing. Route-map from Hyderabad to Bhutan: Day 1: Hyderabad – Vishakhapatnam (~650kms/ 11hrs) Start from Hyderabad in the morning with a breakfast break at Suryapet, Lunch at Vijayawada and finally rest for the day at Vishakhapatnam Day 2: Vishakhapatnam to Bhubaneshwar (~441kms/8hrs) Day 3: Bhubaneshwar to Kolkata (~440kms / 9hrs) Day 4: Kolkata to Siliguri (566 kms / 12 hrs) Day 5: Siliguri to Thimphu, Bhutan (322kms / 15hrs) Need to check the time taken at International Border for permits and other documentation and revisit the time duration. One additional feature i ended up exploring in google is you can find and pin the sightseeing locations in the area that you are going to: https://www.google.com/maps/d/viewer?mid=1RucFJlvuB_MN--0t-ZsJJ1cMZMc&shorturl=1&ll=27.203132919431468%2C90.41887550000001&z=7 Well these are the initial thoughts with which i started and jotting down my ideas, any suggestions, most welcome...
