Hyderabad to Nagpur Road Trip

Recommended Posts

I am planning to do a road trip to Nagpur from Gachibowli, Hyderabad. Planning to start early morning from Hyderabad.

How is the current condition of the road from Adilabad to Hinganghat as previously it was not good. Also, please suggest any good spots for food.

Hi Guys,

 

I am new to India-Drive. Wasn't aware about this wonderful website.

I would like to know your suggestions for Hyderabad to Nagpur drive, like how much time it will take, decent stops ( as I am travelling with family), Fuel stations and as I will driving from Bengaluru, on the way which place , after Hyderabad , I can stop for night halt.

 

I am planning to start by morning 5:00 AM from Bengaluru in Swift with limited stops.

 

Awaiting your valuable suggestions.

 

Thanks,

Dhananjay

Are you planning to do it in a single day?

Hi Ranger,

I don't think it's possible to do in one day from BLR to NGP.

Thinking of taking halt at either HYD or Nizamabad. Both the places are new for me.

Any suggestions?

 

Regards,

Dhananjay

Avoid Nizamabad, take a halt at Hyderabad. 

Start early in the morning from Hyderabad. 
You can take accommodation close to ORR (Gachibowli)

Bangalore to Hyderabad roads are excellent. 
Hyderabad to Adilabad is top notch. 
Adilabad to Nagpur is average, you will find some sections filled with potholes, but the entire road is 4-lane.

If it is a leisure trip, you can visit Kuntala waterfalls at Adilabad. Flow is average. But it is worth a visit. 

Hyderabad to Nagpur has limited food/washroom options.  Specially, between Nizamabad to Nagpur.

Thanks for your valuable suggestion, Ranger.😊

Its really useful.

 

After reading someother post in this forum only, I thought will halt at Nizamabad.

But, after your post, I think I will do a break journey at HYD itself.

Once again thanks.

You can also halt at Nizamabad, but you wont gain much. 
If you have any time constraint you can still consider Nizamabad.


Since you are already taking two days, why not do it leisurely.
Also you can find plenty of accommodations around Gachibowli, compared to Nizamabad. 

You can also consider staying in Kompally. It will be easy for you to get out of city. 
Once you enter Hyderabad, take ORR and exit at Kompally. No need to go through city traffic.

Kandlakoy / Medchal Exit, there are no decent stay options here in this zone (Not for families at least) @Ranger Instead like you said best bet for @Dhananjay would be to halt around Gachibowli, take ORR again next day early morning and exit through Medchal exit and proceed towards Adilabad - Nagpur!!

 

But the best possible itinerary would be halting at Hyderabad instead of Nizamabad so that you have plenty of options for decent stays / Breakfast joints and you will actually reach Adilabad for Lunch with current road conditions between Hyderabad - Adilabad.

 

Please do update us once you are done with the trip!

 

Happy and Safe Driving!! Hope this helps.

Actually my complete trip is till Bhopal. So, I thought of covering as much distance possible on day one and avoid night drive. Keeping this in mind, I thought of staying at Nizamabad as I heard after that there is no good place to stay at night with family. And, I am not sure, if , I will be able to cover BLR -> NGP in single day even though I start at 5:00 AM from BLR. 

Still, I think if I can reach HYD by or before 1:00 PM, I will try to continue till NGP same day. But, not sure if its possible and doable.

BLR -> HYD is 600 KM app and HYD ->NGP is 500 KM app. 1100 km in single day looks too optimistic :) with single driver (thats me ). From NGP, my brother will join and will take over.

If you are planning to do it in two days, you need to push till Nizamabad. 
But the stay options are average and limited.

Once you cross Nagpur, roads deteriorate a lot. Very time consuming. 
Also lack of proper food joints is a concern.

Hi All,

Thanks for all your suggestions.

 

As planned, I could start by only  6:00 AM from BLR and reached Nehru ORR by 1:20 PM.

Took 2 stops , 1 for breakfast for 20 minutes and then refueling before Hyderabad.  

Climate was good and was greeted by rains in between twice till Hyderabad.

 

As I was able to cover till HYD by 1:20 PM, I decided to continue further and finally reached Adilabad by 5:40 or 6:00 PM. It started getting dark.

As the road till now was good , I decided to continue till  NGP. and break journey there. But to my surprise suddenly greeted by very bad patch.

My car took sudden hit on road and I was scared, luckily nothing happened to car.

There were no cars on the stretch. Only Big trucks were passing and  roads were pathetic.

I slowed down to 40 KMPH from 80-90 KMPH. My only worry was, if anything happens to car then it will be a big problem, even mobile network wasn't there.

(If anyone is taking same road, it will be good to cover this stretch during day time, at-least till the road gets repaired.)

Somehow, I kept driving and reached Hinganghat. Here road was good and now I was able to see some local cars moving towards NGP.

 

Also, was able to get mobile network too.  On the way, my wife booked a hotel near NGP Airport and by 9:15 PM checked in a hotel  opposite to airport.

 

Had hot water bath and dinner and slept.

Started for Bhopal next morning by 8:00 AM. Road till Betul was  excellent and after that single lane but was able to drive at 50-60 KMPH.

After crossing Hoshangabad at Budhni , took road towards Salkanpur and at Rehti took Kolar road.

This lag(NGP - BPL) of journey was tiring. Reached Bhopal at 6:00 PM ( After halting at Pandhurna for 1 and 1/2 hours).

 

I will start my return journey from Bhopal on Nov 1st and planning to start by 5:00 AM and will try to reach HYD same day.

Will share my experience on this part after reaching back.

 

Any suggestions are welcome :).

 

Thanks,

Dhananjay

Guys,

I am back to Bangalore on Nov 2nd.

Started from Bhopal on Nov 1st early morning 5:00 AM.

Reached Nagpur around 11:30 - 12:00 and continued.

As mentioned earlier, I wanted to cross Hinganghat - Adilabad stretch during day time so didnt halt much in between.

This time to my surprise, after Hinganghat and near Kelapur toll, was greeted by craters. If anyone is crossing this section first time that too in dark its very dangerous.

There was hardly any place to move car from there. Somehow crossed that section and within 2kms there is a toll named Kelapur toll. I complained there about the road condition and they told work in progress.

I even raised public grievance on "https://pgportal.gov.in/." and awaiting reply.

 

We reached Hyderabad at 7:00 PM and stayed in a hotel for night and started next day morning (Nov 2nd) for Bangalore.

After having breaks for breakfast and fuel reached home (in whitefield) by 4:30 PM).

 

With this,  I completed the trip successfully :).

 

Thanks ,

Dhananjay
