We have used a Xiaomi YI 2 4k Action Camera and a DJi Osmo for recording a video log  of the whole drive...

Fantastic video.

Happy to be the part of the trip.

Once in a lifetime memory.


Excellent co-ordination between cars and good set of drivers made the drive memorable.


Getting stuck in snow and recovery process was the best part.

      I regularly commute on Hyderabad to Vijawayada highway, almost once in a month from the past 10 years.

      Hyderabad to Vijayawada distance :275 kilometers

      Year :2006 
      It is a single lane road, not enough to fit 3 vehicles at a time. It used take me 7 hours to travel from Hyderabad to Vijayawada. Blind curves. Highest accident ever occurred in the country. One of the busiest, mostly filled with trucks. Worst road condition, filled with unlimited potholes. Driving at night is a suicide.(zero visibility with those high beams) Some overtakes used to take me at least 15 minutes, Imagine 10 trucks trailing each other with no space between them, on a single lane! No proper hotels and washroom Worst fuel quality But I used to enjoy the drive, it is challenging and fun.  
      Year :2017(after a decade)
      Now it has a 4-lane road, truck lay by lanes, emergency lanes and bridges across villages. It is taking me 4 hours from Hyderabad to Vijayawada. I am saving 3 hours.  Many good hotels available, no issues with washrooms. Toll road, with road assistance and standby ambulance for safety. Continues patrol across the highway, last year a huge industrial truck was stuck on highway while taking u-turn. Patrol guys arrived within 15 minutes and took the situation under control.  

      Hotels between Hyderabad to Vijayawada

      1. Village Aharam :  Malkapur 
           First decent hotel on the highway
      2. Highway 9 Restaurant : Nalgonda
           Good for break fast
      3. Hotel Vivera : Nalgonda
          Recomended, If you are planning to diver towards Nalgonda.
      4. Maa palle ruchulu : before suryapet
          Village style hotel, don't expect luxury.
      5. Hotel 7 : suryapet
          Best in quality, very good washrooms. Recommended for families.
      6. Numerous hotel in Suryapet.
          You get all types verities over here.
      7. G-hotel : Suryapet
      8.Once you cross Suryapet, you won't find any proper hotels, though you can find many road side dhabas.
         Please correct If i miss anything.
      Fuel stations 
      You can find then in every 20 kilometers radius.

      It is a complete toll road, elevated 4-lane, on an average you pay around 1 rupee per kilometre, so it should be under 250/-
