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 :(

      We got our new car in Aug 2018, decided to go for a long drive during dasara holidays.
      So we planned for a 3 day trip to Anantapur, lepakshi and madhavaraya temple gorantla.
       
      Day:1 
      Distance : 366 KM
      Travel time : 6 hours approx
      Started on Sunday afternoon around 1:30 PM,
      we took the NH44 towards jadcherla, karnool. Reached around 7:30 to Anantapur with tea break and dinner break nearby Anantapur (Hotel Mayura) .
       
      We stayed at Hotel Serena as we saw some good reviews about the place, and its close proximity to NH.
      Hotel was good as we expected. 
       
      Day: 2
      Distance: 255 KM
      We began our journey to Lepakshi temple around 8 am after had a delicious breakfast filled with yummy idlis and hot wadas at Ramaiah Idly Centre,
      which seems to be famous food joint known especially for Idlis in Anantapur. Reached Veerabhadra Temple, Lepakshi around 10 PM.
       
      Temple is maintained so clean and neatly, found parking place near by the entrance.
      Around 2 hours we spent in the temple admiring the marvellous sculptures of Vijayanagara architecture.
      Being the holidays season temple had good amount of visitors, though we had a pleasant darshan.
       
      Temple has a small garden and washroom facilities. This is a must visit temple if you like visiting historical places filled with beautiful sculptures and grand architecture. Few pictures take using my mobile. hope you like them.

      Planning : 
       
      Day 1 : Hyderabad to Pune drive details 
       
      - Started at 5:30 AM in the morning ( due some delays)
      - Breakfast stop at around 7:30 AM at Hotel Mahindra Paradise
      https://goo.gl/maps/4ZU7cMJrdkG2
       
      - Very few options on this section due to new roads
      - Road between Hyderabad to Humnabad is excellent. 
      - Humnabad to Solapur is pathetic, some sections are too narrow. 
      - Solapur to Pune is excellent, but recently new have installed speed bumps near villages.
       
      - We had a lunch break at some road side restaurant. 
      - We reached Pune by 6PM.
      - According to admins, we are very quick compared to last drive.
      - During last drive they reached Pune at 7PM (started at 4AM)
      - I think roads improved!
      - We checked into Hotel Siesta which is excellent (Frankly, I did not expect such a luxurious rooms for the price)
       
      Day 2 : Pune to Lohagad fort 
      - We started at 7/8 AM from Pune
      - Since our accommodation is in outskirts.
      - We reached highway within 10 minutes
      - We had breakfast stop Kamat.
      - Pune to Lohagad roads are scenic.
      - We reached Lohagad, explored the fort and had lunch break.
      - We drove to Lonavala, Tiger view point, We are literally above clouds in some sections.
      - We reached Pune by night
       
      Day 3 : Pune to Matheran
      -We repeated the same schedule of Day2, till breakfast.
      - We hit the famous Mumbai-Pune expressway
      - I can clearly see everyone is pushing their cars, it was pure fun for drivers.
      - Best experience of Mumbai-Pune expressway is during monsoon.
      - Once we divert from expressway, roads to Mahteran are pathetic. 
      - It took us hours to complete 80 kilometres. 
      - I loved Mathern, they don't even allow cycles.
      - Only transport option by walk or horse.
      - Hotels on the hill top are below average.
      - While driving back we reached pretty quick on the same route. 
      - We reached to Pune to 9PM
       
      Day 4 : Pune to Hyderabad
      - Drive is was uneventful
      -  It is similar to Day1
       
      Apart from 1 Polo puncture, drive is fantastic throughout four days.
       
      Drive 
      Hyderabad : Solapur : Pune : Lohagad fort : Lonavala : Pune : Matheran : Pune : Solapur : Hyderabad
       
      Road condition:
      Hyderabad to Solapur : 
      Hyderabad to Humnabad is good and Humnabad to Solapur is bad 
       
      Solapur to Pune :
      Very good, but i have seen some uneven sections, It is no where close to Hyderabad-Bangalore sections
       
      Pune to Lohagad:
      Road are narrow scenic and good
       
      Loahagad to Lonavala
      Roads are bad
       
      Lonavala to Pune
      Road are excellent
       
      Pune to Matheran 
      It is a mix of good and pathetic roads
