1681KM, 7 Days, My Golden Horse(HYDERABAD-RAJAHMUNDRY-MAREDUMILLI-VISAKHAPATANAM-RAJAHMUNDRY-HYDERABAD)

Recommended Posts

Day one(29/01/2017)

Sunday, Morning 8:00

HYDERABAD-->>>RAJAHMUNDRY

 

Distance: 429 KM

 

Drive Time: 9 Hours including one long break and few resting breaks

 

Mileage: 13.2 KMPL

 

Vehicle: Honda City VX Manual Transmission (Golden Horse)

 

Fuel: Petrol

 

Speed: Cruised at 120 KMPH

 

Route:

HYDERABAD--> Suryapet--> Vijayawada-->(VIJAYAWADA BYPASS ROAD) Nuzivid--> Hanuman Junction--> NH16 (CHENNAI-KOLKATA HIGHWAY)--> Rajahmundry.

 

Many of you might be familiar with the Vijayawada--> Rajahmundry normal route, but this is a newly constructed route which skips Vijayawada city traffic goes through many small village roads, narrow roads, small ghat roads or mini ghat roads. The road conditions are worst till Nuzivid and from there the road is two lane road and is good. There are no proper restaurants till Rajahmundry, one must be prepared to eat on the way side dhabas or else wait till Rajahmundry.

 

Coming to the Hyderabad

To Suryapet road, the road is awesome 4 laned road there are many restaurants on the way, driveking wrote a review about this road so I'm skipping the info of this way and will go on with my journey.

 

I stopped at Ma palle ruchulu for breakfast. The restaurant is awesome and the prices are reasonable for the quality. Don't expect any luxuries in the restaurant, it's a simple yet best village themed restaurant. Best items to eat is pulla atulu in veg. I don't know about non-veg. Waited there for one hour and started to Rajahmundry. And reached Rajahmundry by 5:00 in the evening. Stayed at housing board colony, my grandparents place.

 

Here are few pics if the restaurant and the way.31f4f452e9042147873ac3fe10cde737.jpg

Day Two (30/01/2017) Monday.

No activity, Took rest. 

 

Day Three(31/01/2017) Tuesday, Morning 7:30

RAJAHMUNDRY-->MAREDUMILLI

 

Distance: 86 KM

 

Drive Time: 2 hour 45 mins with few photography breaks.

 

Mileage: 13.2 KMPL

 

Vehicle: Honda City VX Manual Transmission

 

Fuel: Petrol

 

Speed: 80-110 KMPH

 

Route:

Rajahmundry--> Gadaala--> Rajahmundry Airport--> Burugupudi--> Korukonda--> Gokavaram--> Venkata Puram--> Folkspeta--> Bhuoatipalem--> Rampachodavaram--> Ramannavalasa--> Maredumilli.

 

Started at 7:30AM from Rajahmundry and reached Maredumilli at 10:30AM. The road conditions are excellent two laned road takes you through beautiful dense forest. After reaching Gokavaram mobile signal goes off only BSNL signals are available. After reaching Rampachodavaram beautiful dense and beautiful forest starts and the ghat road starts from there. One can easily maintain 80-100 on the road there'll be no traffic after crossing Rampachodavaram, that's the last place where we can find population and from there it's calm, beautiful, lush green, dense forest and agency area. There is a reservoir at Bhupathipalem name is Bhupathipalem reservoir that's a beautiful place which also offers boating.

 

There are two resorts to stay at Maredumill

1) Birds nest resort

2) Vanavihari Eco Tourism

 

The best place to stay for a family is Vanavihari Eco Tourism. There is a restaurant in the resort, veg and no veg are available on demand. Best time to stay and visit Maredumilli is October to November. And best place to stay is Hill top resort at Vanavihari Maredumilli. There are many other AC and non AC resorts to stay ranging from ₹1000 per night to ₹2000 per night for two people and ₹600 for an extra bed. There is Jungle star nature camp a site for camping.

 

Places to visit at Maredumilli

1) Jalatarangini Waterfalls

2) Swarnadhara And Rampa Waterfalls

3) Karthikavanam And The Vali Sugriva Medicinal Plants Conservation Area

4) Madanikunj-Vihara Sthal.

 

According to the receptionist at Vanavihari most of the waterfalls are dried up now. And Karthikavanam And The Vali Sugriva Medicinal Plants Conservation Area is empty, no one to guide and no one will be with you even to open the gate that's my personal experience but the place is must visit for nature lovers and Photographers. There is coffee plantation area where you can spot birds according to locals, but the place is deserted without a single person, better to go with groups and good offroading vehicles, preferably a Thar. Maredumilli is a place for true nature lovers, Photographers and for the people who want to forget and come out of cities and enjoy the nature. One can enjoy the silence of the forest and lush green beauty of the forest in any season.

I visited Vanavihari took photographs and explored few lonely and beautiful places in my Honda City, felt that's not the right car and not the right place for 3 people took rest near the coffee plantation gate and left the place with a heavy heart.

Places to Eat: Restaurant at Maredumilli.

PS: don't eat at way side Restaurants at Maredumilli. And bamboo chicken is famous there. Haven't tasted as I'm a vegetarian.

Here are few pictures.Vanavihari Maredumilli

Drive time: 9 hours including one long break and few short breaks

Mileage: 13.2 KMPL

Vehicle: Honda City VX Manual Transmission

Fuel: Petrol

Speed: Cruised at 110KMPH.

 

Took another route from Rajahmundry not the regular Rajahmundry--> Vijayawada--> Suryapet--> Hyderabad route. This is a bypass route which skips Rajahmundry takes you through a new bridge over Godavari river and then connects to the Khammam-Aswaraopet road. Take left from lalacheruvu and it'll connect you to the bypass route.

 

The road conditions are worst two laned road till Aswaraopet, once you enter Aswaraopet you should take a left and it'll connect you to Khammam road. The road from Aswaraopet is excellent two laned road, one can easily cruise at 100KMPH. Road is surrounded by lush greenery and farms. Many places to rest under trees. This road has many truck traffic as they enter this road to avoid toll gates. It took us 9 hours to reach Hyderabad because of the worst road till Aswaraopet. After Khammam it connects to sathupalli and then connects to Suryapet then regular highway starts. Enter this road only if you want to avoid toll plazas.

On this route we reached home by 5:30. We stay at Kompally traffic starts from Uppal.

 

PLACES TO EAT: Vijayawada to Hyderabad

Many way side Restaurants till Suryapet. After Suryapet there are many good restaurants, few are

On the left when coming to Hyderabad:

1) G Hotel

Nice hotels with decent price and quality

2)Hotel Sai Prasad Pure Vegetarian

Pure vegetarian restaurant, no neatness

3) Vivera. after Narketpally

Hyderabad to Vijayawada : On the right when going to Vijayawada:

1) Annapurna Pure Vegetarian

Decent and simple veg restaurant

2) Village Aharam

Organic restaurant

3) Ma Palle Ruchulu

Super village themed restaurant with good food and decent price

4) 9 restaurant

Haven't tried

5) 7 food court

Good food, good ambience value for money.

Lastly thanks a lot to the guys in the WhatsApp group who had helped me in the journey happy.pnghappy.pnghappy.png

Perfect info[mention=342]krish[/mention].... I am planning to do this one next month and this is gonna definitely help me out


All the best
Happy journey...
Call me if you have any doubts regarding the route. You can find me on WhatsApp group. Name is SK. There are two SKs check the dp
Forgot to mention, the bypass road fom lalacheruvu, Rajahmundry is awesome for some 40-50KM.. and after that the worst road starts and that 100KM(APPROX) worst stretch takes 2-3 hours depending on your vehicle. It took 2 hours 30 minutes for me to complete because of low GC of my car. Took 2 underbody hits despite of maintaining a low speed.
Trust me, 50 KM you'll enjoy driving and after that you can only see potholes and truck accidents till Aswaraopet.
Only way side Restaurants and no puncture repair walas on the way till Khammam.

Good to hear the roads are nice from Rajahmundry to Maredumilli.

₹1200 for a tent. 4 per tent. If you want to go there take a proper off-roader 4*4 is not a necessity there unless you do heavy off-roading. Take a vehicle which can manage bad roads, sharp turns, u turns in a single lane road and which can sometimes Cross a bad road with small wooden logs because there near some area you can even come across wild animals in the morning. Go with a group of people who are prepared to take risk if you want to explore some beautiful, lonely, lush green, dense forest.

The name itself brings excitement in my heart.

      #One Baleno#6 Souls#One destination#tones of memories#Bucket list tick#Gandikota Belum caves
      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.

      Christmas holidays.... planned the trip and very well executed with the support of my spouse and kid.
       
      Started at 3:30 Am on 22nd Dec from Hyderabad via NH 44.. It's a pleasure to drive through this route and it's my first-time visit to Bangalore. After entering into the Bangalore got confused with one of the exit at entered into the CV Raman road and got stuck in the traffic around 1 hour. Literally experienced the Bangalore traffic that too on SUNDAY
       
      My only suggestion to newbie visiting Bangalore or traveling through Bangalore, please take some time to explore the map deeply or ask anyone to go in the right direction. 
       
      Road condition from Bangalore to Mysuru(Via NH 275) is Good with a good number of Speed bumps. So have an eye on these speed breakers. 
       
      Reached Mysuru at 5:00 PM and checked into the hotel [Reliable service apartments], booked via booking.com
      After refreshing, visited Brindavan Gardens(KSR) and had dinner at Hotel Chirag Food court Dabha while returning back to Hotel.
       
      It was a long day by driving 729kms, but not challenging. Its a simple and straight road. 

       

       

      Reliable service Apartments:

      Brindavan Gardens:

       

      Tiffin: Roadside hotel, As I had already crossed Kurnool in early hours.
      Lunch: Vattika vegetarian restaurant after crossing Bangalore on the way to Mysuru.
       
      Day 2:
      Mysuru Palace - Coorg
      Total distance covered on Day 2: 112 km
      Stay: OYO Home Luxe 23010 Opulent Stay(HomeStay)

       
      Checked out from hotel@9:30 AM, visited Mysuru Palace and started towards Coorg @12:45 PM via NH 275.  Road condition is good but not great, From Kushalnagar took SH 91 towards Dubare Elephant camp-Excellent location - easily one can spend around 2 to 3+ hours in the Kaveri river. Due to the Holiday season, the queue for the Elephant camp was very huge, so avoided it and had fun with the family in the river itself and also done the Still water river rafting in it.
       
      In between, Mysuru roads were the cleanest and wide roads.

       

       

       

       

       

       

      Still water River rafting - 200/person.
      Time: 30 to 45 min

       

       

       

       

       

       

       

      Once we are done with the Elephant camp, started towards our stay at 6 pm which is in Coffee estate. As it was dark,  it was very difficult for us to find the homestay as there are no street lights and its a ghat road.

      \\\\
       

      Suggestion- Make sure to reach your homestay/Hotel before 6 PM in Coorg especially if you have booked in coffee estates. .
       ** I have avoided to stay Madikeri, as I want a pleasant place to stay on so choose HOMESTAY  and it was an awesome stay for 2 days in between coffee estate and jungle.
       
      Day 3:
      Coorg sightseeing
      Total distance: 83 km

      Started at 10 AM from Homestay towards Madikeri, it's a ghat road and full of scenic views. It was a challenging road  
      Visited Raja Seat, Abbey falls and fort as well...while returning we took the NH 275 as my kid was little worried by seeing the ghat roads which we have traveled in the morning and took the long way via Kushalnagar. Had lunch at Fish curry Rice Hotel and it was 3 pm. We still had time to roam, so again visited the Elephant camp and spent 2hrs and then checked into the homestay by 7 pm.
       
      Day 4 :
      Coorg – Mangalore – Murudeshwara – Goa(Palolem Beach)
      Total distance: 446 km

      Planned to start at 5 AM but due to the darkness started at 7 AM from Homestay.
      Madikeri was full of due.. the visibility was very low.. slowly crossed Madikeri and started towards Mangalore road and in between the scenes of the mountains were awful while getting down through ghat road.
       
      Stopped at Abhi falls – It's a small waterfall point but the scene opposite to the waterfalls was great, spent around 30min by viewing at mountains with some clicks.

      Moved towards Mangalore road.. Its a 2 lane road but the road condition was too good until we reach near to Mangalore.
      Halted for tiffin @ Hotel New kamadhenu at Kodankeri place. I rate it 4/5.
       
      ** Before entering into the Mangalore we have crossed 2 toll plazas on NH 73.
       
      Time was running out due to the highway traffic on NH 66, decided not to halt until murudeshwar temple. Did the same and reached murudheshwar temple by 3 pm.
      Temple location, shiva Idol .. beach all were awesome… As there was no time for us to stay, we shortened our stay and moved towards Goa at 4 pm. From murudeshwar the road condition is Average, due to the heavy vehicle traffic avg speed was between 50 to 60 on NH 66 and most of the road is under construction.
       
      Finally entered Goa after 3 hours drive from murudeshwar, our tiredness got vanished by seeing the see view's
      .
      Not a single toll we encountered on NH 66 after crossing Mangalore until Palolem.

       
      Checked into the hotel @7:11 PM at Palolem.
      Hotel Name: Bay leaf resorts.
      We got refreshed in 15 min and moved towards beach. My kid and wife were very excited by seeing the environment over there. We roamed around Palolem beach for a while and had some roadside snacks.
      Dinner @ Baba's Little Italy restaurant.
      Reached room by 1:15 AM after having a nice relaxing time on the beach shack.
       
      Day 5:
      Palolem Siteseeing.

      Our day started a little earlier, by 6 AM we were on the beach and had some fun playing around.
      @9am booked a boat for 2000 rs, visited Monkey island, butterfly beach, honeymoon beach and also saw a lot of Dolphins

       

       

       

       

       

       

       

       

       

       

       

       

       

       

       

       

      As it was Amavasya, the water level on the Honeymoon beach was very high and boats were unable to drop us over there.  
       
      **My suggestion to one is to have a pocket full of cash if you are in goa.
      In Goa, most of the ATMs either won't be working or no Cash boards. I had to wait in queue for an hour as there was only one ATM which was working.
       
      In the evening, we had visited the Omellete center which is located exactly at the main entrance of the Palolem beach. He has a wide variety of egg dishes and its fantastic. Must visit the place. (Added the stall Pic)
       
      After a beautiful sunset, we moved on to one of the beach shack and had a great dinner. We spent the time until midnight on the beach shore and moved to the room.

       
      Day 6:
      Palolem – Hubli - Raichur
      Total Distance: 483 KMS
      Total Time: 10 hrs 43 min
       

      We decided to start our day a little earlier and moved on to the beach.. We experienced the beautiful sunrise and played around.

       
      Started @10 AM from Palolem... As we all know petrol is cheaper compared to that of other places in India. Filled the petrol to Full Tank and checked the Air pressure as well, as it would be a long drive.
       
      As I was in south Goa and few locals also suggested me take the route of Raichur rather than going through choral ghats from north GOA.
      But, I can say it was a smooth drive until I have reached KADANKOPPA but after that its a Hell of the drive. The road is under construction a lot of diversions and road is not at all good.
      Reached Raichur by 9:50 PM, decided to halt there for a night and did the same. As I was not in a condition to drive more as it was 4 more hours for Hyderabad but due to the road condition decided not to drive more.
       
      **Please do avoid this Hubli-Raichur road.

       
      Day 7:
      Raichur – Hyderabad
      Total Distance: 207 KMS
      Total Time: 4 hrs 6 min

      Started at 5 AM from Raichur and road condition is very bad until you reach NH 44.
       
      Reached Home by 10:05 AM.
       
      Completed the Road-trip with full satisfaction and with lots of memories.
