Hyderabad ORR vantage point, Sri Anjaneya Swamy Temple

Recommended Posts

Distance : 60 kilometers (from Gachibowli)

 

Location : Sri Anjaneya Swamy Temple
 

GPS : https://goo.gl/maps/vjQrN58LkBP2

 

 

On Sunday afternoon @Omik initiated a quick drive(photograpy) along with me @varunc @Saran @Ravi and @Kashyap

 

As usual Ravi was busy and dropped out in the last minute.
 

So this time we decided to go in a single car. Easy to park and stop.
So we squezed into Varun's EcoSport.


We started at 3 PM and reached the destination by 4:30 PM, including few breaks en-route.

 

Route details :
 

You should take Bongloor exit and drive along the service road.
It is a 2 kilometer up hill drive, once we divert from the service road.
You can see the arch at the entrance.

After spending an hour, we drove down and started exploring the places around the service road.

We decided to leave the road and take the trails.

A small detour took us on this beautiful path.

Too good..!!! Just missed this one


Thank you, I guess you were enjoying the ORR on that day.
You must have missed us by an hour, you need to blame Omkar for the sudden plan.

Ranger and Saran, pictures are awesome.
I drive on that section regularly. 
But never heard of the temple. Is it near Sangi Temple?

It is just after crossing from Sangi Temple turn, when you are driving towards Vijayawada exit.

      Hi.
      I am planning to drive from Mumbai to Srisailam with family. I would be the only driver and so will need night breaks in between. I am confused about the route to take post Solapur. Google map shows 2 routes one via Gulbarga and other via Zaheerabad. Which one is better and a 4 track road with dividers? One friend suggested instead it drive till hubali then to Bellary and then reach Srisailam as the road is good and the total distance might increase only by 150 kms. Please guide. Thanks

      Hello fellow enthusiasts,
       
      Recently I was on a road trip to Goa and enjoyed a lot. The hunger of being on road never ends, so with some long discussion with my better half and parents, we came on a decision to take a Road Trip to Bhutan. The plan is set, dates are fixed and I have started working on the itineraries. The chosen month is April, as very less time is left, I am turning to you guys to suggest me the required preparations for the trip. We would be four travellers, the vehicle would be Hyundai Xcent SX 2016 model with less than 10K on it. As it is my parent's car and is mostly driven by the driver, I'd be getting everything serviced. The trip would start from Jabalpur (M.P) to Thimphu (Bhutan) to Jabalpur (M.P). An approximate total of 3500Km, plus 300km miscellaneous. I have some questions and would really appreciate if get the answers from the experienced people of this forum.
       
      1. Best route?
      2. How many halts?
      3. How many days in Bhutan (West)?
      4. Luggage Carrier, would it be an issue for a sedan?
      5. Luggage Career Vs Roof Box, which is better?
      6. IceBox, is it required?
       
      That's it for now, sure would have many more questions later.
       
      ~Sam
