Perfect timing. 
I planned for a 3 days drive.
But the accommodation prices went very high.
It is almost 200% more than regular pricing. 

 

Considering this i decided to explore some place around Hyderabad. 
I'm looking something around 200 kilometers for a day  drive. 
I can stretch a day and stay, If there is any proper accommodation at decent price. 

 

Please suggest guys!

If you are planning for a night stay, I would recommend Bairluty or Pacherla forest reserve stays and Gandikota grand canyon of India :)

I frankly don't find a point in planning a trip to any commercial places like Ooty, Munnar Lonavla, Shimla etc. The crowd spoils the beauty of nature and I personally canot enjoy it at all :(

      "Lost and alone on some forgotten highway - Travelled by many, remembered by few"
      Every December, it has become a ritual for us to go an long drive over 4000 kilometers. This year after multiple discussions and drop outs, every one agreed to drive down South.
      For me it is always the drive that matters and I was never particular about the destination.
      No matter where we go, our ultimate goal is to end up in Goa to celebrate new year.
       
      Day 1: Hyderabad to Chickmagaluru
      Day 2: Chickmagaluru local sight seeing
      Day 3: Chickmagaluru to Gokarna to Goa
      Day 4 : Goa
      Day 5 : Goa
      Day 6 : Goa to Hyderabad.
       
      We split into two teams in two cars. Creta and Polo.

      Hi All,

      This is my first travel story in India-Drive.
      I have been working in Bangalore from the past few years.
      Recently, I moved back to Hyderabad.
      My last drive is from Hyderabad to Himalayas with India-Drive team.
      It is my best and longest I have ever done in my Duster.
       
      Surylanka drive


      I have been to Suryalanka around 10 times, frankly speaking, I lost the count!
      Last month me and my friend decided to go on a quick weekend getaway.
      Plan is to start on Saturday morning and come back by Sunday evening. 
       
      We all know that Suryalanka is overcrowded during weekends. 
      So we constructed a strategy to beat the crowd. 
       
      Route taken
      Hyderabad --> Vijaywada --> Suryalanka
      We took this route since we had accommodation(friend's place) at Vijayawada.

      Best route from Hyderabad to Suryalanka
      Hyderabad --> Nalgonda --> Miryalaguda --> Narasaraopet --> Suryalanka
      I would suggest people to visit Chirala beach along with Suryalanka, we missed out due to time constraint. 

      We started on Saturday around 11AM.
      We took the famous the Hyderabad-Vijayawada section.
      This is one of the best section after Hyderabad-Bangalore.(my personal favorite)

      Maintained steady 110km/hr in my trusted Duster.
      We reached Suryapet by 2PM and stopped over for lunch at Hotel 7.
      Hotel 7 is one of the best in terms of Infrastructure/Food/Quality/Maintenance.
       
      Suryapet to Vijayawada took us around 2 hours +.
      Crossing Vijayawada is always pain. Multiple diversions and no proper signs leads to confusion.
      One of our friend stays in Vijayawada outskirts, we reached his place by 5PM.
      Decided to call the day off.

      How is the road condition from Hyderabad to Mahabaleshwar? Which route is the best?

      Trip Details: Hyderabad to Ethipothala Waterfalls via Nagarjuna Sagar
      Duration: 2 Days
      Vehicle: dZire
       
      Route:
      Hyderabad > Nagarjuna Sagar > Ethipothala falls
       
      This was one of our regular weekend getaways. We plan all of a sudden, start late and end up reaching the place very late as usual.  so we had to stay overnight and explore the remainder of the places next day.
       
      We started late at around 11 in the morning (4 Guys, 1 Car) and reached Ethipothala waterfalls by 7 PM exploring several places in between and taking lots of breaks for photography, food etc. To reach the destination, you need to take a left turn after approximately 14kms from Nagarjuna Sagar. After taking the left, again you need to drive for approximately 11 km. Dont remember the exact details though. 
       
      The waterfall is located inside the Haritha resort. We booked accommodation after reaching there. There were approximately 6 rooms (2 AC and 4 Non AC). The rooms were ill maintained (lot of ants, termites and monkeys in the surroundings). The overall look and feel of the location is acceptable but maintenance is on the poorer side because the number of people who prefer to stay there overnight is very low.
       
      There is a restaurant inside the resort as well but they close by 9 PM in the night. You will not get any food after that time. 
       
      After we reached the resort, we got fresh up, ordered food from the restaurant and started exploring the resort and the 11 km stretch. The waterfall is adjacent to the resort but we couldn't see anything in the night but could hear the sound of the water fall. 
       
      After the brief exploration session, we came back to our rooms, had food and went to sleep in those badly maintained rooms. 
       
      Woke up the next morning and there were a lot of monkeys making lot of noise in the premises. Explored the resort in the day light along with the water falls. The surroundings of the Waterfalls were scenic.
       
      There were few steps to go down the hill and explore but we cannot go near the waterfall as it was being used as a breeding center for crocodiles. We went down the steps after having breakfast in the restaurant and explored those places for some time. It was quite a task to come up those steps in those sunny days.
       
      Post the exploration sessions, had Lunch in the restaurant and returned back to Hyderabad by Night.
