Hyderabad to Goa best route 2019 and 2020

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

I have completed the Hyderabad to Goa track yesterday.

 

Let me split the roads into different sections to give clear information. 

Best route to Goa? It always varies from year to year.

 

Best route:
Hyderabad > Zaheerabad > Humnabad > Gulbarga >  Vijayapura > Bagalkot > Belgaum > Dodamarg > Goa

0D1E16F2-74FD-4B2A-A480-E8168C78FE70.jpeg

Hyderabad to Humnabad: Excellent 4-lane road 

Humnabad to Gulbarga : Smooth 2-lane road, you can take Gulbarga outer ring road to skip the traffic

Gulbarga to Belgaum : Smooth 2-lane road, some of it has a toll
Belgaum to Goa: Roads are not so great blame the recent rains, few patches are pathetic. 

 

Tip:
Humnabad to Belgaum road looks same all the way,

 

Food:
Zaheerabad

Gulbarga

Belgaum

 

 

 

People using Google maps, split your route into different sections

Section 1: 
Hyderabad to Gulbarga, it should be via Zaheerabad


Section 2:
Gulbarge to Belgaum 

Section 3:
Belgaum to Goa, make sure you put exact location in Goa (example : Anjuna beach)

 

 

Drive time

Total drive time including breaks is 14~15 hours,

Don't get fooled by google times. 
Lots of village traffic followed by ghat section, will eat away your time. 
 


Worst route is via Raichur, completely avoid it. 

 

Few clicks from the drive.

Any particular reason you chose Dodamarg over Chorla? I’m heading to Goa (Aldona) on the 27th


Missed your post :(
We stayed in north most part of Goa, above Anjuna. 

So which route did you take?

Left on 27th Dec at 0450 and arrived at Aldona, North Goa, at 1745.   Route taken was Hyderabad - Humnabad - Gulbarga - Bijapur - Belgaum - Chorla - Bicholim - Aldona and the reverse on the way back. Except for some bad patches around Gulbarga and Bijapur, road conditions were pretty good.

Thanks a lot for quick reply. We are going to north Goa itself, but lately couple of times they closed Dodamarg route, so I opted for Chorla ghat route then, having that experience now I’m just making sure of same...TIA

Recently i traveled the zaheerabad, humnabad, gulbarga, vijayapura, bangalkot and belgaum route. Road is good. In the return we started at 08.00 AM in calangute and reached Motinagar, Hyderabad at 10.00 PM on the same day. Tired but it is a new experience. This site helped me a lot to travel my first long drive on my own vehicle.

      Hi,
       
      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.
       
      Thanks,
      Saurabh

      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
       
      Regards,
      Shyam

      Trip planning started 6 months before and it kept on changing. Finally accommodation booked and trip scheduled on 24.Jan.2020.

      Thanks to Ksk (Sathish) and Dishari for continuous guidance on route and stay.
      Car: Baleno ZETA CVT
      Members: 4 Adults and 2 kids
      Places visited: Gandikota & Belum caves. One can visit places like Owk reservoir, Yaganti temple, Orvakal
                     rock garden based on time availability.
      Route taken: Hyd-Kurnool-Nandyal-Gandikota-Belum caves-Banaganapali-Betamcherla-Kurnool-Hyd
      Road conditions:
                  - Hyd-Kurnool-Nandyal: Roads are good
                  -   Nandyal-Gandikota: Roads are good. 50 km before Gandikota roads are average to bad and
                     passes through villages.
      -  Gandikota-Belum caves-Banaganapali-Betamcherla-Kurnool : Roads are average and passes
      through villages. Once you touch NH40 then roads are good.
      - Kurnool-Hyd: Roads are good.
      - Route map provided for ref.

      Distance traveled: ~ 800 KM
      Toll charges (Fastag): Rs. 650
      Petrol expanse: Rs. 3700
      Difficulties:
      Trip was awesome, except Aarav (my son) fall sick on day of trip with viral fever. But throughout trip he supported us with his smile. The complete success of trip goes to him.


      At Gandikota you need to wear good shoes to walk on rocks along with comfortable cloths.
      Avoid it during summer & heavy rains.
      People with breathing and BP related issues should avoid Belum caves.
      Stay option at Gandikota:
      Option 1: Non AC tents
      Cost is Rs. 1000 per person with food on twin sharing basis.
      The only problem is during rainy season this will not be good. Also for common washroom, you need to travel 500 m.
      Option 2: AC tents
      Very costly around Rs. 3000 per person with food on twin sharing basis. Sometime even they charge Rs 3500. Tents without food charges will be Rs. 3000 on twin sharing basis.
      Need online booking via freakout.
      Washroom is attached to tent.
      Opion 3: AC rooms at Hariths resorts
      We found this good and reasonable. Per room cost is Rs 1600 from Mon-Wed and on Thur-Sun it will be Rs. 2000 (taxes extra).
      Rooms are good and 500 m away from site.
      Rooms being limited we need to book online via AP tourism website.
      Food options at Gandikota
      Only food option is Haritha resort (if you have not booked tents). We found food is average and can be manageable. We have carried electric cooker and prepared food by our self.
      Food options at Belum caves
      There is a small hotel available near to booking window. They serve cold drink, water and snacks.  We found food is average and can be manageable.
         
        You can enjoy this trips in 2 days. I advise you to make it on weekdays as there will be less rush. For us it took 3 days as we are travelling with kids and we don’t want to drive in night and early mornings.
      Disclaimer: Not all of the photos are taken by me. Few are from my friends mobile.
      Photographic device:
      Poco f1
      Oneplus 7T
      Canon 1300D
      Xiomi note 6 pro
      Beauty of place you can derived from photos.
