Mumbai to Hyderabad to Srisailam

Recommended Posts


I am planning to drive from Mumbai to Srisailam with family. I would be the only driver and so will need night breaks in between. I am confused about the route to take post Solapur. Google map shows 2 routes one via Gulbarga and other via Zaheerabad. Which one is better and a 4 track road with dividers? One friend suggested instead it drive till hubali then to Bellary and then reach Srisailam as the road is good and the total distance might increase only by 150 kms. Please guide. Thanks

Follow this post. People traveled on this route very recently - 

They suggested this route --





I suggest Route from Hyderabad to Srisailam. The road is 2 lane but in good state. You can reach in 3 hrs. 

Follow the below route, will help you plan better. You can also visit few places before you reach Srisailam. 




If you have time and would like to visit more places, then you can do round trip.


Like Mumbai --> Pune --> Hyd --> Srisailam.

Srisailam --> Kurnool --> Mantralayam --> Hampi (Near Bellary) --> Hubbali


There are few places you can cover near Bellary like Hampi, Badami, Bijapur etc before heading back to Mumbai.

Taking the following route
Mumbai --> Pune --> Solapur --> Kalaburgai --> Humnabad --> Zaheerabad --> Hyderabad


Mumbai to Solapur : 4/6-lane toll road
Solapur to Humnabad : 2-lane, road condition good
Humnabad to Hyderabad : 4-lane, toll road, road condition is excellent. 

Halt at Hyderabad 

Hyderabad --> Kalvakurthi --> Munnanur --> Mallapur --> Dhomalapenta --> Srisailam 


Food stopovers 

Avoid other routes shown in google they are not worth it.

Let me know,  If you have any queries.

I just got to know that Govt planning to close the Srisailam Ghat section from 9 PM to 6AM. That means you will be stopped at the forest check post if you reach during this time.

Hey guys thanks for your suggestions. I am just thinking to club Tirupati along with Srisailam. What do you suggest? Go to Srisailam first or Tirupati and then Srisailam. Any suggestions on the route? Thanks

Hi. I have a week's time to cover entire stretch. Last week I was at Hyderabad and enquired from few colleagues here.. they said that they had gone to Mumbai from Hyderabad in a Volvo taking Patancheru Sangareddy Zaheerabad route.. is this the same route which you are talking about ? I saw signs of Mumbai Nagpur on Nehru outer ring road.. and the driver said that straight road goes to Mumbai. How far does this good road continue?

Thanks for your suggestions

Yes it is the same road that goes to Mumbai.

Hyderabad to Humnabad : Road condition is excellent
Humnabad to Solapur : Road is under construction, diversions. Would rate it bad. 
Solapur to Pune : Road condition is excellent

Pune to Mumbai : Expressway, super good.

      Hyderabad to Maredumilli plan
      Frustrated with Hyderabad traffic and bad roads due to rains, I have decided to get out of the city and explore the farm lands of Godavari district and the forest range of Maredumilli.
      Idea is to go on a quick getaway.

      All the accommodations at Maredumilli are full.
      This did not dampen my spirits.
      Its not about the destination, It is the drive that matters to me.
      Did some quick research and booked accommodation at the nearest town which is Rajahmundry.

      Hyderabad to Maredumilli route plan(best route):
      Hyderabad to Maredumilli has two routes
      Route 1 : Hyderabad --> Suryapet --> Vijayawada --> Tanuku --> Rajahmundry --> Maredumilli
      Route 2 : Hyderabad --> Suryapet --> Khammam --> Kothagudem --> Bhadrachalam --> Chintur --> Maredumilli
      Route 1: It is the best route to take. Completely 4-lane till Rajahmundry
      Route 2 : Avoid it unless you are planning to cover Bhadrachalam
      Day 1 : Hyderabad to Rajahmundry  Day 2 : Rajahmundry to Maredumilli Day 3 : Exploring villages around Rajahmundry Day 4 : Rajahmundry to Hyderabad  
      Places to visit in Maredumilli and Rampachodavaram (link)
      Excellent post @Surya78, your post helped us a lot.

      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/-
