Solapur--> Kalaburgai (Gulbarga) --> Hyderabad.
This section is single lane, with the mix of good and bad roads.
Keep an eye on village crossings, dogs and bikers.

The stretch between Solapur and Kalaburgai has some bad patches. (around Akalkot)

 

Kalaburgai has many decent hotels with good washrooms.

 

If you are planning for the lunch stop over.
I would recommend Lumbinis grand hotel near kamat. (before 3 PM). Not sure If the lunch will be served after 3 PM.
Location : https://goo.gl/maps/VMz6T6hjjK62
 

If you are late, try to have lunch just before Solapur, there are many road side dhabas available before Solapur.

Refill fuel at Solapur, there are very few fuel stations that accept card after Solapur.

There are many roads between Kalaburga to Hyderabad.
Take only the following route.
Kalaburgai --> Sedam --> Parigi --> Chevella -->Hyderabad.

If your are using google maps set the route to Gachibowli Hyderabad, instead of Hyderabad.
Drive safe and Start as early as possible.

Update us when you are done with the trip.

 

You can go through the above details for Solapur to Hyderabad route queries.

Best route: Avoid zaheerabad.

Pune --->Solapur --> Akkalkot --> Kalaburgai (Gulbarga) --> Sedam --> Parigi --> Hyderabad

In order to follow this Route how much extra time can be added in trip.

Because per review it shows that it is state highway and as you suggest villagers/ Dogs may slowdown the speed. What are major challenges on NH65.

It is under construction, road is getting extended from 2-lane to 4-lane.
It has improved compared to last year, still many diversions.
During night people are getting confused at switchbacks, coupled with heavy bus and truck traffic.

Once 4-lane is completed there is no point in going via Kalaburgai (Gulbarga)

Hi,

I am planning to drive from Kukatpally, Hyderabad to Sholapur on Saturday, 03-June-2017. I intend to start at 04.30 AM that day.

 

When I check in Google Maps, I see that the Google Maps is showing two routes.

1. NH 65 - which is expected to take around 5 Hours 45 minutes and the distance is 285 km.

2. Via Kalaburagi - which is expected to take around 6 Hours 25 minutes and the distance is 345 km.

 

Looking into the timing & distance as shown in Google Maps, looks like NH65 should be a better option, in spite of road extension works.

 

But I see that in this blog there are lot of suggestions to take the road via Kalaburagi. Can some body help with a clarity on why the route via Kalaburagi is being suggested.

 

Thanks for your help.

 

Regards,

Maruthi.

Difference in kilometers and drive time is very less.
Hyderabad --> Zaheerabad --> Solapur : road is improving.
Hyderabad --> Kalaburgai --> Solapur : Is current favorite.

 

It all depends on what you prefer,

 

Via Kalaburgai

Drive is peaceful, less truck and bus traffic.

Issues : Single roads, very few food options and village traffic.

 

Via Zaheerabad

Heavy truck traffic and continuous switch backs.

Issues : Many traffic jams during night, heavy bus traffic early in the morning.

I have used both roads extensively, Personally I prefer Kalaburgai road.
It is more peaceful and stress free compared to Zaheerabad route.

 

If you are doing two way runs, I would suggest you to try both the roads.

Hi Maruti, 

 

The drive through Gulburga is very peaceful and the road condition is really good, even being single lane road you find very less traffic and can make up good speeds, I have good experience of this road in March this year when I am travelling back from Akkalkot, for now just avoid Zaherabad road, the road condition is pathetic. I have experienced it last month on the way back to Hyderabad from Ahemedabad. I know the Gulbarga road is far better for me but as I was traveling in night  and the occupants were only me and wify, i opted Zaheerabad road :(.

Thank you for the update Sunil.
 

Gulbarga (Kalaburgai) route is still the best route.
Avoid Zaheerabad route as suggested by Sunil.


 

Last year there is a 1 kilometer bad stretch near Akkalkot, Is it completed?

I travelled on that route last saturday. Road is good.

From Hyderabad to zaheerabad it is nice.

Once we cross zaheerabad, will face some diversion.

If you are travelling in night time, you need to be careful as they have put some barricades in form of drums.
They are not visible and no reflector stickers so be careful.


I would rate it good.

Solapur to Pune is bliss, 4-lane and smooth.

Thanks everyone for your suggestions and views.

 

I completed my trip.

HYDERABAD---->Pune--->HYDERABAD.

 

Below are my observations:

 

1) NH65 is the best route to opt. 100 KM patch in Maharashtra has difficulties which will slow down your Avg Spped. Specially at Umaraga, Naldurg and up to Solapur.

 

From Solapur to Pune I was thinking why I do not have Cruise Control Car. My max maintained speed was 130KMH. It was like Playing NFS.

 

 Pain full drive was from Hadapsar to Pimpari which took 2 hrs for 40 KMs. I think drivers in Pune city act smart.

 

 

2) While returning I opted Kalaburagi Route as suggested above, however I was not comfortable.

I killed 2 Dogs.

Lot of bikers, tractors and street animals on the road, very narrow road.

Villagers are were partying on the road and blocked 50% of Road in one village.

Unable to clock the speed of more than 50KMH.

Lot of people showing hands for Lift.

 

 

3) Overall travel time:

Started at 5:00 AM

Hyderabad--- Zaheerabad--Solapur:- 4:30 hrs. (1hr Break) Solapur-----Hadapsar:- 2Hrs. Hadapsar---- Pimpari 2.00Hrs.

Reached at 2:30PM

 

Started at 5:00 AM

Pimpari---- Solapur:- 3:00 Hrs. (1Hr Break) Solapur-------Hyderabad (Via Kalaburagi) 7Hrs.

Reached at 4:30PM. Overall 100 KMs extra.

 

4) Lot of Diversions,Agreed with Admin. Only 50% to 70% work is completed, both side traffic is diverted to single lane but it is not impacting your Avg speed.

 

5) Please avoid Night driving on both Routes. Agreed with Admin.

 

6) Please do not follow any of Volvo Bus or Trucks. They may create problems.

 

7) Nisarg Restaurant is better than Kamat. Better test at lesser price. Kamat is only Show off.

 

Safe Drive and Enjoy your destinations.

 

Next upcoming trip

a)::- Hyderabad---------->Shirdi---------->Indore------>Ujjain------>Indore------------>Shirdi---------->Hyderabad.(Planing in Dec)

Next upcoming trip

b)::- Hyderabad---------->Nagpur--------->Jabalpur------------->Varanasi------------>Jabalpur----------->Nagpur------------>Hyderabad.

(In Search of Best time)

Thanks a lot for the latest update.

I have few questions for you.

How is the road quality via zaheerabad?
Last time I took this road, It is filled with numerous pot holes, Overall drive was very bad.

My friend got bent rims (aftermarket) on his Honda city.

 

How often are the diversions?
 

Which car you are driving?

This is bad. Starting early morning from Hyderabad will have an advantage, no village traffic.

Looks like zaheerabad road is improving, now we have mixed reviews between zaheerabad and Gulbarga.

From Hyderabad to Umarga most of Road is ready, final work is going on and waiting for opening ceremony. 

 

From Umarga to Solapur No constructions and diversions. but it seems they have done some patch work.

 

Avg Diversions are at 5-7 Kms. but they have prepared proper curve to turn which helps even if you are @ 120KMH.

 

I was driving VW Polo.

Yes it is completed, the road is in very good condition now. I was actually surprised to see such good roads in MH (Vidarbha) :)

Just finished a road journey from Hyderabad to Pune in June 2017.

 

Hyderabad to Zaheerabad- ordinary road

Zaheerabad to Basavakalyan (Karnataka-Maharastra border)- Roads are good with multiple diversions

 

The moment you enter Maharashtrra (umerga) the roads are really bad . Single lane and reminds me of the old state highways. very very uneven.

This is the status till Solapur

 

From Solapur till pune is a 4-lane toll highway. Very good

 

Started at 5 am and reached at 5 pm

Hyderabad to Solapur has two routes. 

Via Zaheerabad
Via Gulbarga (Kalaburgai)

From the recent updates we can see both roads are equally good and bad.

Zaheerabad route:
- Heavy traffic, trucks and travel bus.

- Tough to drive in the night, unpredictable diversions as the road is under construction. 
 

+ Many food choices

+ National highway, lot of activity. Safer for families driving in night. 

Gulbarga (Kalaburgai)
+ Peaceful to drive, when you are starting early in the morning from Hyderabad.

+ Less truck/bus traffic.

 

- Village traffic and stray dogs.
- Less food options
- Less activity in the night compared to Zaheerabad route

- Longer by 30 kilometers, though the drive time is same.

It is now 50:50, pick the one that suites your requirement.

Hi,

 

I left my home in Kukatpally at 04:30 Hrs on Saturday, 03-June-2017. I decided to take the route via Gulbarga (Kalaburgi). I reach Solapur NH 65 at 10:50 Hrs, (from there I went on to Pune). Enroute I had my breakfast at Gulbarga, which is a 20 minute stop. So it took me 6 hours of drive from my home to Solapur. There was hardly any traffic on the road. Except for 1 km in Akkalkot, rest of the road is very smooth and a very stressfree drive

 

On my return journey on Sunday, 11-Jun-2017, I wanted to see the road Solapur to Hyderabad Via Zaheerabad. I was on NH 65 in Solapur at 11:15 Hrs. I reached my home in Kukatpally at 17:45 Hrs (which includes a 30 minutes of lunch break). So my return journey was also a 6 Hrs of drive from Solapur to Hyderabad.

 

But the return journey was very pathetic. I had to drive around 300 km. Out of this around 150 km is fully bumpy drive, especially the 120 km from Solapur to BasavaKalyan is pathetic, which took me 2.5 hrs. The roads got better in Karnataka and Telanaga, but needed some frequent switches of lanes and overtaking was difficult at times due to the vehicles coming in the opposite direction.

 

I really feel that route Hyderabad -> Kalaburgi -> Solapur is the best as of now considering the fact that it has less traffic and driving is stressfree.

 

Regards,

Maruthi.

Agree to this point, Yesterday I drove till Zaheerabad, road condition is good.
But high traffic, speed bumps and continuous switch backs made the drive very tiring. 

 

One good stretch, near Zaheerabad. Hope it will change to Hyderabad-Bangalore highway.
It will definitely improve the connectivity.
