Hyderabad -> Kuravi (Mahabubabad) Road condition

Recommended Posts

Hi All,


We are planning a roadtrip to Kuravi this weekend and expect some guidance on the road condition to Kuravi (Mahabubabad, Warangal).


There are two routes shown in google maps, one via Suryapet (my preference as I recently did till Suryapet) and another from Jangaon. Both the routes will be intersecting at Maripeda Bungalow. 


Wanted to know if anyone did this route recently so that they can update on the road conditions. Thanks in advance.

Via Suryapet is the best option. 
Avoid Jangaon route.

Hi Ranger,


Thanks! I just completed the drive over the week end and I did it via Suryapet and it was indeed a good decision but I would suggest people to not use it in the night driving after crossing Suryapet we need to travel 15-17 km's from really an isolated place where in you'll cross a few villages except that 15-17 kms, the roads are very nice and its all highways so didn't faced any problem. Couldn't take pics as it was really dark, we crossed it between 7-8 and it was pitch dark.


While returning I came via Warangal enroute Laknavaram and the road is undergoing 4 lane expansion work filled with all pot holes and patch works. I would suggest people to avoid this route if there is an alternate route to Warangal and again after Warangal the roads are really good(:):photo:). Till Yadagirigutta from ORR the road is absolute beauty post which the roads remind us of Hyderabad city roads :P:P

      Route expedition Via Google Maps
      Day 1:
      Route: Hyderabad - Mahbubnagar (NH 44) - Alampur - Kurnool - Mantralayam
      Total distance covered on day 1 :  320+ KMS

      It was Christmas holidays and decided to have a long trip, planned for Lonavala at first but due to personal reasons the above mentioned trip was confirmed and this was my 3rd trip with family.
      Started off early in the morning 5AM from Hyderabad towards alampur through Highway NH44. Once you have crossed the shamshabad, you will directly connect to the NH 44, the road condition is excellent with 2 toll gates in between of toll fee Rs.110+ total.  
      4 lane national highway, cruised on the road around 80kmph and covered total distance of 220 in 3+ hrs with a small tea break in between.
      Reached  Alampur -Jougulamba temple around 9am, stayed around 1.5hrs and visited all the temples around and the view of Tungabhadra river as well.
      Then started towards Mantralayam  via Kurnool from Alampur, had breakfast at surroundings of Kurnool as we are not able to find anything to eat at alampur area.
      Alampur - Mantralaym: 115 kms.
      Duration: 2.5 hrs
      Reached mantralayam around 1pm , boarded into sreeniketham lodge for a day. Devotees were all around due to holiday season.
      After having some rest, explored the location of mantralayam .




      Day 2 : 
      Route  : Mantralayam - Kurnool - Yaganti - Ahobilam - Mahanandi
      Total distance covered: 328 kms 
      Journey time: 10 Hours with 5 Halts

      Mantralayam - Yaganti via Kurnool.
      Road condition was good until we left the NH 40(As shown in the map), after that we need to pass through many villages and the road is just Okay at a speed of just above 40 kmph.
      But i can guarantee that the visit was worthy, even though the road condition was just Okay. 
      Temple is surrounded by the mountains and the over view was awesome.






      From yaganti, we started towards the Belum Caves, but due to bad road condition and time constraint we have driven towards Ahobilam . 
      Road was in very bad condition from Yaganti to Ahobilam, I would suggest one not to visit ahobilam as of now. 
      Yaganti to Ahobilam:  78 kms, Single road.

      It was almost 4pm in the evening, visited lakshmi narshimha swamy temple ASAP at ahobilam and departed to Mahanandi. As there was no accommodation available during that day and the temple is situated in the Nallamala forest range so before its dark, decided to move on to our next destination MAHANANDI.
      Ahobilam to Mahanandi - 60kms , Single road
      Travel Time: 2+ hrs
      Road condition - Poor

      Reached Mahanandi @7:30 pm, after a lot of struggling finally got accommodation at temple devastanam. 
      Roads are in very bad condition at Ahobilam and Mahanandi, which needs to be repaired as many devotees visit these places.
      My suggestion is to visit Mahanandi via Kurnool - Nandyal route.
      Mahanandi Temple is in vast area.. Very peaceful and lookout for monkeys all the time  


      Day 3:
      Route: Mahanandi - Nallama Forest - Nagarjuna sagar
      Distance : 271 kms, 6 hours journey
      Road condition was excellent with 2 lane, drive was very smooth until we reach Yerragondapalem, After that again its a single road and it was very tough to reach a speed of 50+ kmph with lots of curves and ghat roads.
      In Between, we crossed the Nallamala forest  Ghat road and it was an awesome experience driving through it, Wonderful view of forest from the top of the ghat road.



      Nagarjuna sagar:











      Day 4:
      Route: Nagarjuna sagar - Nalgonda - Suryapet - Warangal
      Distance : 240 kms, Journey time: 5+ hrs

      Started at 3pm from nagarjuna sagar and reached warangal around 8pm.
      Road condition was just Okay, From nalgonda to suryapet, half of the way was very poor but once we touch the vijayawada highway it was very smooth. From Suryapet to warangal its a double road with less traffic, drive was very smooth. 
      Stayed one day at warangal and then moved on to Hyderabad. Distance 167 Kms total.
      Over all experience was very good throughout the Roadtrip.

      -Few People were asking Road Condition between Suryapet and Bhadrachalam.
      I thought my photos which were captured during June 2017 will be helpful.
      Here are the detailed pics which will explain the Road condition.
      Hyderabad-Suryapet :
      Excellent 4-lane road.
      Suryapet - Khammam :
      Event less road with medium traffic and expect some really blind curves in villages.Need to be careful.
      Khammam - kothagudem-Palvanche :
      High traffic- Road is double lane and Many RTC buses , Lorries would ply and they really drive rash, this area being coal belt area.
      Palvancha to Bhadrachalam Road was bit smooth and few places were under construction.Might be done till now.
