 *** Even Though this Travel is done back in march ,  by Sleeper Bus and Flight - I think its eligible to get into this Section as I would post pictures  of Road and Few Places of interest. ***

 

Well The Most Asked Question either in ID whatsApp or Facebook  - Which Route is Best from Hyderabad to Goa and Back.

 -- Teaser Pic

 3.JPG.38d717108190c63ba9def1dfb4fa361c.JPG

 

                  This was done in March and my friend  had to attend an Meeting in Goa - He booked ticket for me But I have  missed out the flight from Hyderabad became blessing in disguise .

 I have booked  VRL travels Sleeper coach Bus to reach Goa the Next day where I could enjoy the journey and being a road enthusiast I preferred sitting in Cabin and Enjoy instead of the sleeper Berth - somehow i felt the sleeper berth cramp and bumpy 

Bus was scheduled at 19:00 hrs Departure and boarding was at Lakdikapul , where a mini bus took all of us to Aaramgarh , Reached Aaramgarh by 19:00 , but had to wait about half-an hour for the Bus to arrive   .

                Bus was almost Full and it is due to they have adjusted passengers who booked AC  Seater bus into here   - Where as I have paid 1700+ for sleeper Bus and people who booked 800Rs Ticket were fortunate enough to get into sleeper Bus

- Picked up a passenger in between , near Shamshabad and slowly Bus picked up and reached a Dhaba Near Jadcherla  for Dinner Break - I had food packed from home and as per fellow passengers food was pathetic and hotel was just OK.

-- Bu Stared from Jadcherla and took Mahabubnagar road  and below route was taken

  MahabubNagar - Raichur - Madgal - BagalKot- Belgaum - ChorlaGhat - Goa

-- Below was the Road condition

Hyderabad - MahabubNagar : Road was Good

MahabubNagar - Raichur : Road works were on then and little diversions too

Raichur - Madgal - Bagalkot : Its double road and we have to get down whenever an bigger vehicle or 4 wheeler came from opposite end  and Needless to say while in Karnataka Expect many speed breakers too ..

Bagalkot - Belgaum : Road was good .. Reached early in the Morning - Hence it was easy to cross Belgaum

 

Belgaum to Start of the Ghat Road - it was double road and being early morning there was some truck traffic and also travel buses reaching Belgaum , Many people were doing walking /jogging by the side of the road and seen some people doing Yoga too  

Needs to be careful while driving at the stretch

--- Once reaching the start of the Ghat Bus has stopped at decent Hotel for Bio Break and it was around 6:00 A:M in the Morning.

It took around 3 hours to reach Goa [Private Buses Parking Yard] as road was through Ghats  , Some rural villages and little delay at check posts - Being Morning time encountered little traffic reaching Goa ]

 

 Stayed a Hotel Govia Homes Near Candolim Beach - Hotel was home stay kind and had good swimming pool - Able to tour only Candolim and Baga Beaches and a guided tour with mini bus provided 

.

 All beaches that i have toured were well maintained maximum care is taken to avoid plastic - even though boozing is not allowed at sea shore near by Beaches but i could see few people doing that 

 

 

Goa is Pretty costly and Bargain is the funda works here - never hesitate to bargain if you are shopping in the shops road by and Near beaches too

Food is pathetic and costly especially people from Telangana and Andhra would find food not so good , me being vegetarian has less options to chose and my friends who took non veg said its pathetic and not for spice lovers ..I have seen few people from TS and AP getting Induction stoves and cooking as they found food very very waste in taste .

 

-- I think there is very much to explore in Goa Beyond Beaches and Booze , something that always pulls back to the place may be its weather , people  or its picturesque locations and Beautiful Beaches   - that might be the reason people  always wants to make it despite of the hard roads and other reasons like cost and stay options - There is always something more left to explore in Goa as per the conversations with people and foreigners who were visiting for nth time who are always finding a new place and Goa wears  different colors accordingly to the different seasons

@travel.rtc Nice write-up and pictures are very nice. When did this trip happen and for how many days ? 

What places did you cover ?

Thanks and this was Done in March April - Even though it was start of seummer - i could see many tourists around Goa 

- Stay was near Candolim Beach - Hence covered : Candolim Beach , Sinquerim Beach , Baga Beach , Miramir Beach - Here went for Dolphin spotting and waste it was But cruise was wonderful and they have shown that Jail and clock tower and we were not in a mood to get down from the boat and go till there - 400 Rs was charged for the boat ride and safety jackets would be given .

 

You can rent a Bike/Activa kind  - 300Rs was rent for one day but they would ask you to return by Morning time itself - Hence Plan to take it in morning .

Goa can be best enjoyed By Bike itself due to Narrow roads .

No Need to give Driving License - Being commuted in Bus I haven't carried License and I rented a Bike with my Election Identity Card also .They would give some fuel and we can purchase with them further fuel.

 

If we are travelling by flight then be planned to reach Airport well Before as Road to Airport from North Goa is little Narrow and later gets traffic 

Speed Guns are Present and hence cabs cannot cruise above 80 kmph which could delay reaching Airport

The prices of this is so because of off-season. During the month of November, December and January the prices of the gearless are around 700 to 800 after bargain and bikes like Royal Enfield and given for 1200 - 1500 INR..

Also, you can rent a car for around 1500 bucks per day during the off-season.
