Stick to the regular route.

 

Route:
Hyderabad --> Zaheerabad --> Solapur --> Pune --> Mumbai

 

Hyderabad to Solapur :

Road work is almost completed between Hyderabad to Solapur.

Around 50 kilometers is still pending.

 

Solapur to Pune :
Excellent 4-lane toll road.

 

Pune to Mumbai:
6-lane expressway.

 

Can be done easily in a single day.
Plan in such a way that you don't caught up in Pune city traffic, while crossing it.

You can stick to this regular route. Do plan to start your drive early so that you can reach Zaheerabad for breakfast and Solapur for lunch. Pune for a tea break and Mumbai for lunch.

 

There are many food options after you cross Zaheerabad but small dhabas and for lunch on the Solapur Highway, many options for lunch like Vithal Kaamat restaurants all along the highway.

Hey Praxy,

 

I would recommend the below route for you and definitely 4 AM start would be the best time.

 

Mumbai - Pune - Solapur - Zaheerabad - Hyderabad.

 

Road Condition:

 

Mumbai to Pune :
Flawless 6-lane expressway.

 

Pune to Solapur :
Super good 4-lane road.

 

Solapur to Hyderabad :

Few bad stretches and diversions due to road construction work

About 50 to 70 kilo meters.

 

The above is the best possible route for you to reach Hyderabad amongst the available options.

Can I know which car would you be driving and also places of accommodations in which place?

It can done easily, if you start at 4AM.

 

Only Major hurdles are Pune city traffic and 60 kilometres of bad stretch once you cross Solapur.

More than 90% is 4-lane, rest of 2-lane is pathetic.

 

Very less food options( decent) between Solapur to Hyderabad.

Plan accordingly. 

 

Total time will be around ~14 hours, including breaks.

Since you are starting early in the morning(4AM) you will reach before 9PM

Once you cross Pune there are plenty of options for a stopover.

Solapur to Hyderabad, you wont find any decent options.

Hey Neeraj, The road conditions are more or less still the same. Hasn't seen much of a progress in this stretch.. which is still the only best option to reach Solapur. Drive between Naldurg and Solapur is the most bad stretch.

Road condition around Solapur can not improve due to the heavy vehicle movement there.. Expect very bad roads..

Now we have around 50 kilometers of bad section before Solapur. 

Roads are improving at a very slow pace.

 

Once it is completed, Hyderabad to Mumbai can be done in a single day without any stress. 

Food options are still pretty less between Hyderabad to Solapur. There are no fancy hotels like Hyderabad to Vijayawada.

Yes correct ...As per my last two trips to Shirdi,  I can see the road condition between OMERGA to NALDURG has improved a lot . The earlier route near NALDURG fort was horrible , but now it is very smooth. I am quite sure the stretch between NALDURG and SOLAPUR  must have improved as well.

 

Regarding the food option between SOLAPUR and HYDERABAD, I saw many road side DHABAS but yes my personal feeling says many of them are not suitable  if  we have families with us  especially during night times ... Many times  we take lunch/dinner in HOTEL SAI PRASAD just before NALDURG, which has quite good ambience. There is also KOHINOOR restaurant , which is very big with good ambience and I have seen many BIG BUSES like ORANGE,KESINENI,DIWAKAR etc...used to stop there. I think in coming days we will have many food outlets with roads are improving.

 

When I travelled to MUMBAI ( APRIL- 2015 ) , my MAP MY INDIA navigation took me inside PUNE CITY to catch MUBAI-PUNE EXPRESSWAY . Though I was lucky to enter PUNE around 11:30 to 12PM , still there were lots of traffic inside PUNE city . Do we have a BYPASS before PUNE to catch MUMBAI-PUNE expressway ? 

 

I started from HYDERABAD at around 12:30 PM and reach MUMBAI (HOTEL RENAISSANCE , POWAI) at 2:20 AM with LUNCH,DINNER&BIO breaks. That time (APRIL-2015) , I was not aware of our INDIA-DRIVE website....Else I would have put a detailed travel report......😃😃😃😃

      Intro Rant:

      Summers are always tricky. Most people don't prefer to venture out on a trip in summer, for obvious reasons. So, when I bounced an idea off a trip to Warangal this summer, everyone went nuts. They even ridiculed that I'm not in my senses. But I did not want to drop the idea just because someone feels it to be stupid. I needed a break from my monotonous work life, so I was adamant. I know my wife also wouldn't agree; even if she does, she doesn't come considering the weather, but I have to do the customary - inform. My son's response, quick as a wink, was "Let's do it". Wonderful kid. It took some collective effort by me and my son to get the go-ahead from the home minister. Phew!
       
      Plan and Preparation:

      Being a Kakatiya University graduate myself, I regret not exploring enough of Warangal (capital of Kakatiya Dynasty) for long, which is known for its rich history and heritage. Though it is well within 150 km distance from my hometown and also from Hyderabad, I did not specifically travel to see some of its historical places. So, it's that time again - One-day trip!
       
      There was this understanding with my wife and me that any impromptu trip needs to be done and dusted same day. If it's feasible and possible then she and our daughter would also join. Otherwise, my only soul companion is my son on any given day. He can only match and endure my crazy schedule. But being peak summer, my wife was skeptical and worried about excessively hot weather. Only after explaining and reassuring about all necessary precautions taken, we were given the nod. I feel there is nothing like "perfect" time to travel. There is only convenient time. The more the amount of convenience the better. That's it. Peak season travel can bring expensive price tags, overcrowded tours, accommodation, parking and food problems etc. So sometimes off-season travelling could bring in some benefits. One such benefit is leisurely exploring the place in its entirety without hassle. In the end, it proved to be a wise decision as we could spend some quality time exploring the places (especially Laknavaram which is crowded during peak season).
       
      Once the date (April 15th) was decided, it was only up to us on how many places we can cover in a day. We finalized 6 places. I've gone through Google maps for route and order of visit.
       
      The Route:

      Hyderabad -> Bhuvanagiri -> Yadadri -> Kazipet -> Warangal. 
       
      This is the only route everyone takes from Hyderabad, but little did we know what was in store for us. The four-lane road is under construction from Yadadri (Yadagirigutta) to Warangal, and it is a 99-km section of National Highway–163 in Telangana. Lots of patches, diversions and traffic was allowed only on one side. It was a nightmare to drive with heavy oncoming truck traffic especially at night. It took nearly 4 hours to cover 145 odd KMs for return journey, excluding dinner time.
       
      The Journey:

      Below was the order of places we wanted to visit:
       
      Bhadrakali Temple Warangal Fort Thousand-Pillar Temple Ramappa Temple Laknavaram Lake Pakhal Lake  
      Trip Details:
       
      Total distance covered:  539 KM
      Total duration of the trip:  17 hours
       
      Road Conditions:
       
      NH163 - Yadadri to Warangal:  Quite a few diversions, patchy roads, potholes, and heavy truck traffic (at night). Other connecting roads are good to okay. If travelling to Pakhal lake from Laknavaram then do not blindly follow Google maps. It'll take you through some thandas.  We drove almost 6 KM through a thanda and got lost.  Just take left at Mallampalli and follow NH365 until Narsampet (Ambedkar statue), and then take left and follow Pakhal road till the lake.  
      Food Options:
       
      Limited food options everywhere we visited except Warangal. At Laknavaram, food options available like lunch, but depends on the crowd. Better to carry home-made food to other places.  
       
      Parking Facility:
       
      Limited or no proper parking facilities at all places I visited. It'll be chaos at Laknavaram in peak season unless there is an alternative.
