Hyderabad-Dandeli-Goa-Chikmagalur-Hyderabad Road Trip

Recommended Posts

I'm planning a 9 days road trip along with my wife.

I have these places in my mind but not sure that the days are sufficient to travel these distance and explore the places.

 

We are planning a stay at Dandeli for 1 or 2 days, & at Goa for another 1 or 2 Days.

Your suggestions and feedback will be very helpful.

I'm driving a Volkswagen polo 1.2 comfortline.  Dhoodsagar & Jog falls are the few place,s I'm looking to explore on the way.

 

Thank you.

Hi @Viswa Devabattula... below is the possible route map which Google map suggests and suggestion for planning your trip,

 

Starting from Hyderabad, reach Dandeli and stay for couple of days. Then go to Dudhsagar falls on the way to Goa. As per you plan again couple of days in Goa and then take a different route to Jog falls. Before Jog falls, you can also visit Gokarna beach. Then finally return back to Hyderabad.

 

Day 1: From Hyderabad to Dandeli.

Day 2 & 3: Stay & hangaround in Dandeli.

Day 4: Visit Dudhsagar falls enroute to Goa.

Day 5 & 6: Stay & hangaround in Goa.

Day 7: Visit Gokarna beach, Jog falls & end your day in Shivamogga.

Day 8: Reach Hyderabad.

 

Day 9: You will have 1 full day to cherish the moments and relax after your long drive.

Few tips from my side.

1. Make sure there is water flow in Dandeli, without water rafting it is waste of time. 

2. I heard Dudhsagar falls is closed, please do some research before venturing.

I would suggest the following plan.

Day-1/2/3

  • Hyderabad to Chikmagalur 
  • If you hate speed bumps, best route is via Bangalore. 
  • It can be done in a single day without any issue.
  • Stay in Chikmagalur town and explore the places around, accommodations are cheap during weekdays.
  • If you are planning on a long weekend, prebook your stay.

Refer the following link  for places to visit.

 

Day - 4

  • Chikmagalur to Gokarna Via Jog falls
  • Start early in the morning, roads are single lane and will consume lot of time
  • Pre-book accommodation at Gokarna, accommodations at Gokarna are tricky. Limited options. 

Day - 5

  • Gokarna to Colva (South Goa)
  • Stay in south Goa
  • Visit Butterfly Island
  • Local boats will take you to this place with minimal charges
  • Enjoy the calm and peaceful beaches of South Goa
  • You can get some beach view resorts at reasonable pricing 

Day - 6/7

  • Explore the beaches around South/North Goa
  • Check this link out for places to visit in Goa

Day -8/9

  • Start back from Goa to Hyderabad
  • Start early in the morning 
  • Best route from Hyderabad to Goa link

Lovely information @b@r@n . @Viswa Devabattula As said by @Ranger, Make sure about the water rafting being open during the time of your visit. The frequency of this happening always is very seasonal as it depends on the water flow in the Khali river. Don't forget to contact the accommodation person or the camping site person about this being opened, otherwise the forest trails in dandeli are good for a night camp.

Also, I am hoping Dudhsagar would be opened for your visit as there is not much water flow at present.

Yes it is safe.
Personally, I would suggest you to avoid a night drive.
Hyderabad to Goa route is a mess. 
If you are driving with family, try to cover it during day time.

It definitely is safe @Viswa Devabattula, provided you need to be very sure about the route that you are going to take about not getting lost in the middle of no where as you may not find people in the mid of the night to ask for any reference. But, I don't think you would come across such a situation. Go for it.

      *** Even Though this Travel is done back in march ,  by Sleeper Bus and Flight - I think its eligible to get into this Section as I would post pictures  of Road and Few Places of interest. ***
       
      Well The Most Asked Question either in ID whatsApp or Facebook  - Which Route is Best from Hyderabad to Goa and Back.
       -- Teaser Pic
       
       
                        This was done in March and my friend  had to attend an Meeting in Goa - He booked ticket for me But I have  missed out the flight from Hyderabad became blessing in disguise .
       I have booked  VRL travels Sleeper coach Bus to reach Goa the Next day where I could enjoy the journey and being a road enthusiast I preferred sitting in Cabin and Enjoy instead of the sleeper Berth - somehow i felt the sleeper berth cramp and bumpy 
      Bus was scheduled at 19:00 hrs Departure and boarding was at Lakdikapul , where a mini bus took all of us to Aaramgarh , Reached Aaramgarh by 19:00 , but had to wait about half-an hour for the Bus to arrive   .
                      Bus was almost Full and it is due to they have adjusted passengers who booked AC  Seater bus into here   - Where as I have paid 1700+ for sleeper Bus and people who booked 800Rs Ticket were fortunate enough to get into sleeper Bus
      - Picked up a passenger in between , near Shamshabad and slowly Bus picked up and reached a Dhaba Near Jadcherla  for Dinner Break - I had food packed from home and as per fellow passengers food was pathetic and hotel was just OK.
      -- Bu Stared from Jadcherla and took Mahabubnagar road  and below route was taken
        MahabubNagar - Raichur - Madgal - BagalKot- Belgaum - ChorlaGhat - Goa
      -- Below was the Road condition
      Hyderabad - MahabubNagar : Road was Good
      MahabubNagar - Raichur : Road works were on then and little diversions too
      Raichur - Madgal - Bagalkot : Its double road and we have to get down whenever an bigger vehicle or 4 wheeler came from opposite end  and Needless to say while in Karnataka Expect many speed breakers too ..
      Bagalkot - Belgaum : Road was good .. Reached early in the Morning - Hence it was easy to cross Belgaum
       
      Belgaum to Start of the Ghat Road - it was double road and being early morning there was some truck traffic and also travel buses reaching Belgaum , Many people were doing walking /jogging by the side of the road and seen some people doing Yoga too  
      Needs to be careful while driving at the stretch
      --- Once reaching the start of the Ghat Bus has stopped at decent Hotel for Bio Break and it was around 6:00 A:M in the Morning.
      It took around 3 hours to reach Goa [Private Buses Parking Yard] as road was through Ghats  , Some rural villages and little delay at check posts - Being Morning time encountered little traffic reaching Goa ]
       
       Stayed a Hotel Govia Homes Near Candolim Beach - Hotel was home stay kind and had good swimming pool - Able to tour only Candolim and Baga Beaches and a guided tour with mini bus provided 
      .
       All beaches that i have toured were well maintained maximum care is taken to avoid plastic - even though boozing is not allowed at sea shore near by Beaches but i could see few people doing that 
       
       
      Goa is Pretty costly and Bargain is the funda works here - never hesitate to bargain if you are shopping in the shops road by and Near beaches too
      Food is pathetic and costly especially people from Telangana and Andhra would find food not so good , me being vegetarian has less options to chose and my friends who took non veg said its pathetic and not for spice lovers ..I have seen few people from TS and AP getting Induction stoves and cooking as they found food very very waste in taste .
       
      -- I think there is very much to explore in Goa Beyond Beaches and Booze , something that always pulls back to the place may be its weather , people  or its picturesque locations and Beautiful Beaches   - that might be the reason people  always wants to make it despite of the hard roads and other reasons like cost and stay options - There is always something more left to explore in Goa as per the conversations with people and foreigners who were visiting for nth time who are always finding a new place and Goa wears  different colors accordingly to the different seasons
