Hyderabad to Kolkata - Jan 2020

Recommended Posts

HI All,

 

I am planning to start my journey on 11th Jan 2020, from Hyd to Kolkata , I have done Hyd to Vizag in 2018 and know the road condition pretty well. I am skeptical about day 2 drive from Vizag to Kolkata

 

Few Clarification

 

  1.  How's the road conditions  from Vizag till Kolkata , What time should I start from Vizag. (family of 3 )
  2.  Lot of people warned me to avoid driving in AP & OR border , OR & WB border (During early hours & late night)
  3. Would like to spend some time near Chilka lake (30 mins) any preferred restaurant etc
  4. Precautions for the car, I have an eco sport 1.5 Diesel trend , 2017 model & drove around 70K so far
  5. During return I would like to touch down Puri & konark ,what time should I start from Kolkata to reach Puri - How's the road condition.
  6. Would like to stay for 2 days in Puri & konark( Do you think its advisable , place to visit etc )
  7. Can I cover Puri to Hyderabad in one day.

 

I am super excited for this long drive.

1 Road conditions are very good vizag to kolkatha , u better check with @aritray he drove Hyd to kolkatha in a day continuously.

2) I never faced any pblm at the borders u mentioned both 2 wheeler ride and 4 wheeler drive

3) you can at orissa tourism place near chilka, u have to be careful for the diversion to chilka, easy to miss

4)I dont think so any issue comes to ur vehicle if u make it under 140kmph

5) always start from 5 am will be a better way to reach destination

6)ample time to do even u can have ur car through ferry route, instead of NH from puri.

7) I did it in VW Ameo, hope fully u can do it very easily , start early by 5am

I have done it last year, 
You will come across road works once you cross Vizag.

You can check my post

 

You can do it in two/three days depending on your comfort. 
Lack of proper restaurants on highways is downer.

Always carry extra water and snack bars.
