Hi Sourav,

I would recommend you to do the same plan taking the NAM expressway as you can actually cover up many places enroute Rameshwaram.

Day - 1:

Hyderabad  - Ongole (Check out Kavali beach) - Nellore - Pulicat lake (India's 2nd largest fresh water lake after Chilika lake) or Chennai


Day - 2:

Pulicat lake or Chennai - Mahabalipuram (Checkout historic temples on the beachside as you can stop by for breakfast) - Pondicherry (Check out Pichavaram Mangrove forests enroute) - Rameshwaram


Rest of the days can be done as per your plan.


You can as well do this as a whole circuit by driving back to Hyderabad via Bangalore.
