Hyderabad --> Adilabad --> Nagpur
Road condition is excellent, 4-lane road with few small bad patches.
Can be done in 8 hours from Hyderabad.

Nagpur --> Raipur
4-lane road, with village traffic.

If you start early in the morning (4 AM) from Hyderabad, it can be easily done in a single day.

Wow.. was your drive non-stop?

which route did you take? Via Nagpur?

Anything scenic on this route or anything adventurous or something we should not miss?

Via Nagpur is the best option.
Don't take Warangal/Karimnagar roads.

They are pathetic.

There are many places to visit en-route.

There are some beautiful waterfalls, If you are gonging in monsoon there are plenty of options.

I'm planning to cover all the waterfalls this monsoon.

Most probably in August.

August and September are best for visiting the places in the video. But to my knowledge, there isn't any proper access to visit these places by road. Otherwise they would have grown commercially at least to a certain extent. Bogatha is one such falls which is now growing for the past 3 years. This time, we should cover up Bogatha and Gayathri falls :)

Hi Amit,

The route between Raipur and Hyderabad is around 800 kms and the route to be taken would be suggested via Nagpur.

 

Raipur - Nagpur - Hinganghat - Adilabad - Hyderabad.

This is the best route and can be done without any problem. Roads are good but, you will have to pass through few traffic zones between Hinganghat and Nagpur... All the road is a 4 lane road.

 

Do update us back once you are done with your road trip :)  Drive safe!

Hello Amit.. I had gone by train so I did not update my travel here.. but i did go via road sometime back and i went through nagpur, took a night break there and then head out to raipur early morning (even though break was not required).

Though the entire stretch is pretty decent except for in and out via nagpur where I had found way too many transport trucks and patchy roads here and there but still decent enough.

start early from hyderabad in the morning.. and you can make to Raipur by 7 pm including breaks.. the route mentioned by Sagar was the best route back then  though it takes 90 min to 2 hours  more than the route via Chandrapur..

Next time i would like to do it via Chandrapur and test the road condition there..

      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.
