  • A well spent weekend which involved a cars photo shoot in a cloudy and fresh village environment.
  • Monsoons and winters would be the best time to visit.
  • Villagers are friendly. Would suggest to go along with group as the area is remote.

First view of the windmills and locals called them fans.DSC_0825-01.jpeg

 

Our cars looked so tiny in size on comparison.

We spent around an hour and moved to the next location, which is just a kilometer away from the first windmill.

It was short and a quick meet.
It was nice meeting Vamshi for the first time and we were amazed how his lancer had performed throughout the drive.

Varun's and Saran's black mambas rocked as usual. 


Hope to have more exciting breakfast drives on the coming weekends.
Interested members can join us for the next weekend.
Thank you.

Brilliant captures Vamshi and Gowtham.. The weather looked perfect and so did the crew. Nothing like a drive with like minded enthusiasts who would not have any target of hitting to a certain destination. Missed it this time and I'm gonna make sure that I won't the next weekend.

We went to recce the spot for the next meetup.
Villagers are friendly they invited us to their home.

 

They asked us following questions :
How much does your car cost?
Why are guys coming in separate cars, wasting diesel?

What is your salary?Are you married?You have kids? :D


Personally I had great fun interacting with them.

Yeah, place is very isolated. May not be safe for families.

Yeah, it is under 90 kilometers from Gachibowli.
Just before Zaheerabad.

It is little away from highway.(1 kilometer)
Even we are not aware of it.
@TDI guided us to this place.
Early morning is the best time to visit.

      2) Pavna Lake
      3) Lonavla, Khandala
      4) Matheran
       

       

       
      Planning : 
       
      Day 1 : Hyderabad to Pune drive details 
       
      - Started at 5:30 AM in the morning ( due some delays)
      - Breakfast stop at around 7:30 AM at Hotel Mahindra Paradise
      https://goo.gl/maps/4ZU7cMJrdkG2
       
      - Very few options on this section due to new roads
      - Road between Hyderabad to Humnabad is excellent. 
      - Humnabad to Solapur is pathetic, some sections are too narrow. 
      - Solapur to Pune is excellent, but recently new have installed speed bumps near villages.
       
      - We had a lunch break at some road side restaurant. 
      - We reached Pune by 6PM.
      - According to admins, we are very quick compared to last drive.
      - During last drive they reached Pune at 7PM (started at 4AM)
      - I think roads improved!
      - We checked into Hotel Siesta which is excellent (Frankly, I did not expect such a luxurious rooms for the price)
       
      Day 2 : Pune to Lohagad fort 
      - We started at 7/8 AM from Pune
      - Since our accommodation is in outskirts.
      - We reached highway within 10 minutes
      - We had breakfast stop Kamat.
      - Pune to Lohagad roads are scenic.
      - We reached Lohagad, explored the fort and had lunch break.
      - We drove to Lonavala, Tiger view point, We are literally above clouds in some sections.
      - We reached Pune by night
       
      Day 3 : Pune to Matheran
      -We repeated the same schedule of Day2, till breakfast.
      - We hit the famous Mumbai-Pune expressway
      - I can clearly see everyone is pushing their cars, it was pure fun for drivers.
      - Best experience of Mumbai-Pune expressway is during monsoon.
      - Once we divert from expressway, roads to Mahteran are pathetic. 
      - It took us hours to complete 80 kilometres. 
      - I loved Mathern, they don't even allow cycles.
      - Only transport option by walk or horse.
      - Hotels on the hill top are below average.
      - While driving back we reached pretty quick on the same route. 
      - We reached to Pune to 9PM
       
      Day 4 : Pune to Hyderabad
      - Drive is was uneventful
      -  It is similar to Day1
       
      Apart from 1 Polo puncture, drive is fantastic throughout four days.
       
      Drive 
      Hyderabad : Solapur : Pune : Lohagad fort : Lonavala : Pune : Matheran : Pune : Solapur : Hyderabad
       
      Road condition:
      Hyderabad to Solapur : 
      Hyderabad to Humnabad is good and Humnabad to Solapur is bad 
       
      Solapur to Pune :
      Very good, but i have seen some uneven sections, It is no where close to Hyderabad-Bangalore sections
       
      Pune to Lohagad:
      Road are narrow scenic and good
       
      Loahagad to Lonavala
      Roads are bad
       
      Lonavala to Pune
      Road are excellent
       
      Pune to Matheran 
      It is a mix of good and pathetic roads

      Hello,
       
      I was planning to ride from Hyderabad to Ladakh in 2019. Is there any group of motorcyclists I can join who are planning the same? Or is anybody interested to have a travel companion?
       
      Thanks in advance.
    • By nikhil3d
      Hello friends,
      This is my first post in this group and i am very much excited to share my road trip details.
      Please excuse me about my English..
       
      Route:
      Hyderabad to vizag via vijayawada in car. 
      Vizag to araku in kirandal passenger train.
      Vizag to hyderabad via viajayawada in car. 
       
      Day 1:
      Hyderabad to vizag in car.
       
      We are total 5 friends and planned for a road trip since 3 months.
      We have decided to share money (we call it advd (evadi money vadey) in telugu😁).
      So on day one we collected 2000 from each person.
       
      Here is our humble partner in crime.
       and the journey starts
      Group picture taken after crossing Rajahmundry!

      We finished our lunch at Ravulapalem at one of our friends home and moved on to vizag.
       
      Scenic beauty and excellent roads between Ravulapalem and Vizag. 
       

      We have reached vizag by 7:30 and decided to spend some time at beach.

       

       
      We had dinner and local bandi and ate paratas for the night . 
      Details:
      1. total cost: 5000 including breakfast+diesel+dinner.
      2. Room cost: 1600 for 24 hours.
      3. Distance covered : around 800 Km ( I am the solo driver, I love driving, I avoid passenger seat  )
       
      Day 2:
      Vizag to Araku in kirandul passenger. 
       
      Locals and hotel people suggested that best way to visit araku is experiencing kirandul passnger.
      It goes through 25+ tunnels to reach araku. 
       
      Train starts exactly at 6:50AM from vizag and reaches araku at 11AM.
      Here are the some pics from train journey.

       

       

       

      After reaching Araku,
      we decided to visit borra caves. 
      Aruku to Borra caves took us 20 to 30 minutes in a bus.
      Pictures of Borra caves

       

       

      We came back to Vizag in same kirandul passenger in after noon. 

      We called it a day and took the rest for the night.
       
      Day 2 details:
      Total cost : around 2500 including all food expenses + train tickets + entry tickets at borra caves 
      Room cost: 1600 for another 24 hours.
       
      Day3:
      Vizag to Hyderabad in a car
       
      Our return journey was more exciting as slight drizzle is there in through out the journey and most of the roads are empty.
      Here are some pics from return journey.
       

       

      We reached home by 9 at night. we drove lazily and stopped more times to enjoy weather.
       
      Day 3:
      total cost: 5000 including breakfast+diesel+dinner (as ususal my friends mother took care of our lunch at ravulapalem)
       
      Total expenditure : 15000 including some misc expenditure. We divided this between 5 of us... 3000 per head
       
      Note:
      1. Please bare with bad image quality. next time we try with better cameras.
      2. We travel to enjoy driving and roads and not to see destinations. so, normally we just decide and drive off randomly. 
      3. What ever the image size i am uploading it is enlarged in the post. 
      4. Please add us into your whats app group. we are very much interested in road trips in cars.
