@Ranger - thank you for your suggestion, your blog is amazing..


I hope I will be able to do it one day :) . I see that you have driven a Duster,

I will be riding the same for our trip and this is my first road trip at this scale. I have a basic question, my car is RXS 85 PS with stock head lamp and fog lamp. I don't intend to drive at night, will this light be sufficient for the journey? 


Thank you for your guidance.

Actually Duster has much better lighting compared to other cars (stock).
We did few night drives, no problem faced with lighting.

Do share the pictures of Chilka lake, we missed it during our drive, due to time constraint.

Due to some urgency, I need to go Kolkata by Car in July 2020. My car is Mahindra KUV 100 Petrol. I planned to start very early morning at Hyderabad and take overnight halt at Visakhapattnam and next day early morning I shall start and reach Kolkata by night of the same day. Whether my plan is ok or needs any change, kindly suggest.

      I have to travel from Hyderabad to Bhopal next week via Nagpur and Betul with my family. I am planning on covering the entire stretch in a day.
      I am specially concerned about the security of the entire stretch during this pandemic, particularly Betul to Bhopal part.
      Also, do I need to get pass for the travel? Now that inter-state movements are allowed, as per the authorities here at Hyderabad we don’t need any passes anymore. However, will get it if required
      Any advice will be very helpful.

      Hello everyone,

      We [2 brothers, only 1 knows driving] are planning for a road trip from Hyderabad to Kolkata in the coming weekends. Hyundai i20 Sports.

      This would our first long road trip crossing 2 complete states. We are a bit concerned about the road conditions, how safe & secure the entire stretch of road is, any points of concern, or to be noted?

      We plan to go in 4-hour drive <> 1-hour rest and halt at nights at safe & secure places. Considering COVID19, we plan to rest in the vehicle.

      We would be packing light food & snacks & water for the entire trip.

      Requesting this humble community to advice on
      1. Where would we reach with our 4:1 hour drive plan
      2. Any safe & secure place to halt the night around that location
      3. Any additional points of advice/caution
