How is the road condition from Hyderabad to Mahabaleshwar?

 

Hyderabad to Mahabaleshwar has multiple route options.

We can suggest the routes depending on your plan.

 

Mahabaleshwar is completely dry in summer. 
Place is excellent during peak monsoon and winter.
You can go through these links.

 

 

 

How many days you are planning for the trip?

Congratulations. Road trips are fun. Been to mahabaleshwar and panchgani last year in may ( May 2017 ) for 6 days.we were 7 of us including a baby of 4 months. Went in 2 cars. We went via Hyderabad-Pargi-Sedam- Gulbarga- Solapur. Night halt at Solapur. Next morning Solapur- Pandharpur-Panchgani.

This road of sedam gulbarga is well maintained but is 2 laned at most places and goes through villages and towns. From solapur onwards, its a beautiful 6 lane NH. till Pandharpur bypass.

While coming opted for the other route.Panchgani-pandharpur-solapur-omerga-naldurg-zaheerabad-Hyderabad.

Last year, this road was a mess due to highway construction and lots of diversions especially in karnataka and maharasthra side.

As for now,

Hyd-Zaheerabad road is awesome. Went to bidar last month and till zaheerabad its butter smooth.

Beyond that i dont know. Just enquire before starting your trip, the road condition from zaheerabad to solapur especially at omerga and naldurg.

All the best.

It will take you 13 to 14 hours via zaheerabad, omerga, pandharpur route to reach mahabaleshwar including tolls, bio breaks and food breaks. Rest depends on your driving skills, trip management i.e. keeping maps and directions ready, local on the spot road/traffic conditions, fellow travellers compliance and most importantly the car you are driving.

I advise you to start off at 4 am sharp without any delay, hit the ORR. Take muthangi exit for zaheerabad. Have breakfast at numerous dhabas around zaheerabad . Or if you prefer, a brunch at around 10 or 11 at solapur- Vithal Kamat Veg Restaurant. Last 20 kms or so involves ghat roads with incline so get to your stay/resort before sunset.

This is the best route.
Since it is off season, you can get accommodations at less price.(Test your bargain skills :D)

Also check out AirBnB at Panchgani, they have some beautiful locations.

Thanks for all the tips. I have booked hotel Bella vista as they have offered book for 2 nights and get 3rd night free. Will check the hotels and dhabas recommended on the way for breakfast and lunch and hopefully will reach Mahabaleshwar before sunset.

Hyderabad - Zaheerabad - Solapur - Phaltan (Diversion from the highway) - Wathar - Wai - Panchgani - Mahabaleshwar.

 

Your journey will slow down from Phaltan to Wai as you pass through lot of small towns in between (Mix of single lane and double lane roads). The road condition is a mix Good roads and average roads. Usually you go through a lot of pot holes in these regions due to monsoon.

 

I would recommend you to stay in an AirBnB which has an amazing view of the cliff side instead of staying in a regular hotel. There are good amount of stays in both Panchgani and Mahabaleshwar.

      I did not travelled for three months and the traveller in side me is thirsty.
      Few plans to West Maharastra and Goa with friends did not materialised.
       
      I had also planned a trip to Chitrakote falls with family friends but they were afraid of travelling in Chattisgarh.
      It was late night of 27th July, 2018 Friday and I was desperate to go to some place.
      I asked my wife and son Shall we go to Chitrakote Waterfalls? They said yes.
       
      Rough route plan was with me. No bookings for night stay made. 
       
      Got up early on 28-07-2018 Saturday and started from Home by 5.30 AM and reached Warangal by 7.30 AM.
       
      I know the route up to Eturunagaram before Bhogatha and I know very well that once we cross Warangal,
      it is difficult to get any food. So we had Breakfast at Hotel Ashoka, Hanmakonda, once my favorite. Entered in to Mulugu road (from here entire roads are 2 lane) by 8.30 AM. 
       
      Our original thought was to come back in the same route from Chitrakote but it proved wrong.
      Initially we thought of seeing Bhogatha falls in return journey so as to reach Chitrakote early.
      By 10.30 we were at Bhogatha Falls cross road and its only 1 Km from there. We thought lets have a look without wasting much time.
       
      It proved to be good decision.

      Hello trippers, Tell your top monsoon destinations from Hyderabad and why?
       

    • By travel.rtc
      *** 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
