We are planing to travel to south goa on road from Hyderabad (shamshabad ) on 23/12/18. Can anyone update which is probably the best route at the current situation. Also heard that raichur road is under construction. Currently we are thinking to take this route :

HYDERABAD - ZAHEERABAD - HUMNABAD - KALABURAGI (OUTER RING ROAD) - JEVARGI - VIJAYPURA - BAGALKOT - BELGAUM - CHORLA GHAT - KANKUMBI - BICHOLIM - GOA

any other better routes available? or should we follow the same?

thank you

Hi Friends,

 

I recently completed round trip from Hyderabad to Goa in my 1 year old Maruti Suzuki Ignis Zeta Petrol AMT. It’s a family trip with 4 people on-board and we took below route as per the suggestions from other members in this forum,

 

Hyderabad --> Zaheerabad -> Humnabad -> Kalaburagi -> Jevargi -> Vijaypura -> Bagalkot -> Belgaum -> Chorla -> Panjim

 

While going, we took the overnight stay at Bagalkot and while returning, we took the overnight stay at Vijaypura.

 

December 20th

We have started early by 5 AM from Secunderabad and stopped for breakfast at Kalaburagi and lunch at Vijaypura.

 

Road Condition :

The NH65 till Humnabad is very good in condition and Humnabad to Kalaburgai is a state highway with two lane road without divider. This state highway have few construction patches and overall good in shape. We have to be very alert while crossing the villages as people and animals cross the roads without looking at the vehicles coming in and there are many unmarked speed breakers.

 

Breakfast : Hotel Amanthrana

https://www.google.com/maps/place/Hotel+Amanthrana/@17.3333727,76.8363592,15z/data=!4m5!3m4!1s0x0:0x2e959ce4da344063!8m2!3d17.3333727!4d76.8363592

 

Lunch : Hotel Hallimane

https://www.google.com/maps/place/Hotel+Hallimane/@16.8272963,75.7311888,15z/data=!4m2!3m1!1s0x0:0x5ca3e20a380db870?ved=2ahUKEwjF3Of3yc7fAhWDb30KHYHsCFcQ_BIwDnoECAYQCA

 

The food was great at both Amanthrana and Hallimane. Hallimane offers traditional Karnataka thali served in banana leaf. We have explored Gol Gumbaz and Shivagiri Temple in Vijaypura.

 

Night Stay : Clarks Inn Bagalkot

https://www.google.com/maps/place/Clarks+Inn+Bagalkot/@16.1779984,75.7020045,15z/data=!4m2!3m1!1s0x0:0xbb2e5dde63fe2073?ved=2ahUKEwjeg4CXys7fAhWGe30KHfujCWAQ_BIwCnoECAYQCA

 

 

December 21st

We have started by 6 AM from Bagalkot and reached Belgaum by breakfast time. We had breakfast at Ajantha Cafe, Belgaum and started towards Chorla Ghat. We have reached Panjim KTC Bus Stand by lunch time.

 

Road Condition :

Bagalkot to Belgaum road is quite okay with few bad patches. Enroute Belgaum, we have took a shortcut route suggested by Google to avoid some congestion on state highway and landed in some pretty bad village roads. So, please stick to national and state highways in any situation and avoid Google shortcuts. There are few bad patches on Chorla Ghat too which will reduce the speeds. Once you enter Goa border, please be careful with the one ways, road closures and no entry boards. Google routed us in a “No Entry” road just before entering Panjim and Goa traffic police caught us. It’s not a mistake from Google side as these diversions are new and temporary due to the season :)

 

Breakfast : Ajantha Cafe, Belgaum

https://www.google.com/maps/place/Ajanta+Cafe/@15.8594073,74.5118962,15z/data=!4m5!3m4!1s0x0:0xa629e35caae7f89c!8m2!3d15.8594073!4d74.5118962

 

 

December 26th

We have started by 7:30 AM from Panjim and stopped at Vijaypura for overnight stay. We stopped for breakfast at Delta Echohuts food court in Chorla ghat and lunch at Athithi Family Restaurant, below Hotel Annapurneshwari, Bagalkot.

 

Breakfast : Delta Echohuts, Chorla Ghat

https://www.google.com/maps/place/Delta+Ecohuts/@15.682283,74.18825,15z/data=!4m5!3m4!1s0x0:0xf9a4ac3fe5596af3!8m2!3d15.682283!4d74.18825

 

Lunch : Athithi Family Restaurant, Bagalkot

Couldn't find the exact location. It's on Belgaum to Bagalkot highway, 50 kms before Bagalkot.

 

Night Stay : KSTDC Hotel Mayura Adilshahi, Vijaypur

https://www.google.com/maps/place/Hotel+Mayura+Adilshahi,+Vijayapur/@16.8291994,75.7206112,15z/data=!4m5!3m4!1s0x0:0x572c1c87ed64f6b1!8m2!3d16.8291994!4d75.7206112

 

Dinner : Bangalore Restaurant, Vijaypur

https://www.google.com/maps/place/Bangalore+Restaurant/@16.8286258,75.7171853,15z/data=!4m5!3m4!1s0x0:0x9187bc7e7c620a7c!8m2!3d16.8286258!4d75.7171853

 

The food was good at Delta Echohuts, but most of the items will get over by 9:30 AM. So, please be early to this place, If you are planning for a breakfast stop here. The food at Athithi Family Restaurant is good and cheap with both veg and non-veg options. The food at Bangalore Restaurant in Vijaypura is very tasty with many Karnataka specific varieties.


 

December 27th

We have started by 8 AM after having breakfast at Bangalore Restaurant and reached Grand Pariwar Dhaba, Zaheerabad by lunchtime.

 

Lunch : Grand Pariwar Dhaba,Zaheerabad

Few points to note while in Goa

 

1) Entering into the sea in all beaches officially closes by 5 PM. Lifeguards will roam around in Jeeps after 5 PM, warning people to come out of the waters. 

2) Finding car parking at beaches is extremely difficult at peak hours. There are official parking lots at the entrance of every beach but it's very difficult to get the slot there. There are some free parking slots provided by traffic police on the streets, please have a look around or ask someone. 

3) There are many one way and no entry roads in most of the Goa. Please be cautious and look at the sign boards. 

4) Always have the hard copies (xerox) of car documents in hand.

5) For water sports, we have booked online from ; https://atlantiswatersports.com/tours/advance-watersports-package/

6) There are buses to every beach in Goa from Panjim KTC Bus Stand. You can try, If you have time and don't want struggle with Google Maps.

7) Please avoid visiting "Abyss Marine Fish Aquarium". It's a waste of time and money (entrance fee 100 /- per head).

https://www.google.com/maps/place/Abyss+Marine+Fish+Aquarium/@15.3741075,73.9260592,15z/data=!4m5!3m4!1s0x0:0x915a54e3c8464b31!8m2!3d15.3741075!4d73.9260592

 

8) We got a waterproof phone cover for taking photos in waters and it managed to save the phone from few dips

https://www.amazon.in/dp/B0113WSN16/ref=psdc_1389409031_t1_B076FTM2XD

9) Swiggy and Foodpanda available in Panjim. For all the biryani lovers out there, you can get tasty biryani at Zakis Biryani, Panjim.

For Goa local transport, I would always prefer a bike over car.(many self drive options are available)

Bike is easy to use on those narrow roads. 

Specially around Baga and Anjuna.

This is something new that I'm coming across now. :) 5 PM is too early. Which part of GOA have you visited? and your stay in GOA was at?

      Trip Report
       
       
      Yanam, the place that I first visited in 2013, when I was 17. And this time again I wanted to visit the place only to know it better and love it more...
       
      Started early in the morning at 5:10 and reached the area in 1hr. 
       
      The only thing I thought I could do in the place is to take the initial sunrise photo touching the waters. That's a beautiful sight and I never missed that. But surprisingly this time I got more than what I expected. I got to know about the area more and explore the area and the backwaters. This time, unfortunately, I could take my favourite shot, the sun touching the waters because of clouds. But got a chance to explore the area a bit. 
       
      It was 7:00 AM, the sun just started rising pushing the clouds aside. And there I saw a person in a white shirt and white pant, assumed him to be a local and approached him to inquire more about the place. To my surprise, he turned out to be the government boat operator. Upon asking him, he arranged a boat ride into the waters and at 7:15 I was on the boat moving gently on the backwaters. 
       
      The boat driver Ramakrishna, is a very nice guy. I finished taking photos and started talking with him. he spoke many things, from the political situation in Puducherry and Andhra Pradesh, their lives, the local MLA and not to forget, the insider information about the place.  Yanam, a very beautiful place, mostly unexplored and left undeveloped. "Yanam chala manchi ooru Saru, Kani Chala mandi teliyaka raru. Tourists perigite maku income perugutundi" said the boat driver. 
      Yanam indeed is a really beautiful place, there are many places to explore from Yanam. 
       
      The first one, 
       
      Bhairavapalem Mangrove Forests (Where we can find many rare migratory birds. It takes 2 hours to come and 2 hours stay on this island. Total of 6 hours. Price for 10 is 6000 INR) Koringa Mangrove Forests And many small unexplored islands (We can find many migratory birds)  
      I think the area should be developed, but that development shouldn't destroy the natural beauty and serenity of the place. The local activities early in the morning, sunrise, birds chirping and the fishing activities are really beautiful and the development should not destroy these...
       
      Part 2 coming soon... I'll be writing about the places that in have visited in part 2.  
       
      Places to stay:
      The Regency Hotel (best for families as per trip advisor) Sarva Inn Puducherry Government Guest House   
      Few Pictures

      What is a CB Radio?
      A CB or Citizen Band radio is for the purpose of general population use. This is a short distance radio communication system between individuals.

       
      How important is CB (Citizen Band) Radio for a trip like Ladakh?
      Somewhat important, it is useful when there is no mobile network available and a communication is required. But it is worth when more people have the CB radio in their vehicle and are actually tuned to the correct frequency. It is certainly useful for a group of cars travelling and wants to communicate (Clarkson - May - Hammond) while on the move. Yes a Walkie Talkie may fulfill the need but you would need a multi channel walkie talkie which again require a licence. Also, walkie talkie would require the charging and that means another dock on the dashboard, whereas CB radios can be connected to be battery directly and do not require any additional charging arrangements.
       
      Are CB radios LEGAL in India and does it require any Licence? 
      Absolutely Legal and No licence required. As the name suggests, Citizen Band radio is meant for the general population use.  There is a set  frequency band that extends from 26.957 MHz to 27.283 MHz. As per the  Indian Wireless Telegraphy Act, 1933, by Notification No G.S.R. 533(E) dated 12 August 2005( Click here to read the Notification), the establishment of, maintenance of, working with, possession of or dealing with in wireless equipment operating in Citizen Band (CB) was exempted from licensing.
       
      Why is CB Radio not very popular in India?
      The answer is somewhat simple to answer, Indian market has seen the uprising of personal car market in only last two decades, where as before that the sale what somewhat limited and the buying power of consumer was low. In countries where like USA where CB radios are pretty popular and are general accessory of any long hauler. Even in India, many transport companies in order to make their truck, cargo and people safe are opting to get CB radios fitted in their fleet.
       
      Albeit the concept is very old, in India the idea of having a two way radio in cars as an accessory is seldom.
