    Hyderabad to Kanyakumari road trip quires?

    Cool, 7 days would be good to cover the above places. Since you are moving towards ARunachala, you can skip Pondicherry.

    Hyderabad to Goa

    The prices of this is so because of off-season. During the month of November, December and January the prices of the gearless are around 700 to 800 after bargain and bikes like Royal Enfield and given for 1200 - 1500 INR.. Also, you can rent a car for around 1500 bucks per day during the off-season.

    Hyderabad to Goa

    Thanks and this was Done in March April - Even though it was start of seummer - i could see many tourists around Goa - Stay was near Candolim Beach - Hence covered : Candolim Beach , Sinquerim Beach , Baga Beach , Miramir Beach - Here went for Dolphin spotting and waste it was But cruise was wonderful and they have shown that Jail and clock tower and we were not in a mood to get down from the boat and go till there - 400 Rs was charged for the boat ride and safety jackets would be given . You can rent a Bike/Activa kind - 300Rs was rent for one day but they would ask you to return by Morning time itself - Hence Plan to take it in morning . Goa can be best enjoyed By Bike itself due to Narrow roads . No Need to give Driving License - Being commuted in Bus I haven't carried License and I rented a Bike with my Election Identity Card also .They would give some fuel and we can purchase with them further fuel. If we are travelling by flight then be planned to reach Airport well Before as Road to Airport from North Goa is little Narrow and later gets traffic Speed Guns are Present and hence cabs cannot cruise above 80 kmph which could delay reaching Airport

    Hyderabad to Goa

    *** 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

    Hyderabad to Bhutan

    I think, Voter ID is more than enough to enter Bhutan.
  13. Ranger

    Hyderabad to Bhutan

    You need both vehicle documents and people documents. Vehicle: 1. Original RC (Should be on drivers name) 2. Original License 3. Insurance 4. PUC People: 1. Aadhar 2. Passport 3. 6 Passport size photos You need to go through the process where they will validate the vehicle. Followed by regular visa process. There are many agents available near the border or You can do it yourself.

    Hyderabad to Bokaro steel city

    Ah Bokaro ... The place where I was brought up ... 👍🏽... 3 days of drive I believe .
  16. sagar

    Hyderabad to Bokaro steel city

    It is a straight highway taking the Nizamabad highway towards Nagpur and diverting to Bhilai and Ranchi to reach Bokaro. Would recommend you to take a day's break at Nagpur outskirts and start early towards Ranchi.

    Hyderabad to Bhutan

    If at all, your plan is to do it anytime soon, I would recommend to postpone it by atleast 2 months. As per the updates we have received from Sikkim, It is undergoing a havoc due to continuous rain fall at the moment. Highest number of deaths, missing cases and landslides have been recorded this season. Anytime post September is recommendable as the situations would get better.
  18. Best post on the most confused routes to reach Goa with all the necessary information required for anyone travelling to reach there. Very crisp and clear I would say. Thanks much for sharing an informative post

    Hyderabad to Goa by road + stop by's check out spots

    This apparently used to be the preferred route 2 to 3 years back but now there have been multiple reports of bad speed breakers once you get off the Bangalore highway. Also, now that the Mumbai highway is complete till humnabad , access to 4 lane toll road is for almost the same number of kms on both routes. So id say go through Gulbarga . ( Note: Iv been through Raichur route only till Hampi. I have always been to Pune /Goa through Gulbarga and though single road after humnabad, quality of road is definitely better ) Sent from my ONEPLUS A6010 using Tapatalk
  20. Any one had been to Bokaro from Hyderabad. Any one have any idea about the best route or road conditions.
  21. how is it through this : Hyderabad → Mahabubnagar → Kurnool → Ballari → Hospet → Hubli → Dharwad → Goa
  22. Here is the latest plan shared by @SURYAVAMSI Very detailed and informative.
  23. Here's my query regarding the road trip from Hyderabad to Goa in a car. I need suggestions of the routes and any stop by places or spots to visit. Helpfully with food places to have breakfast, lunch and dinner ( which probably may be in Goa) and since this will be in July 2019 I need some latest suggestions please. TIA
  24. Electric cars I came across this interesting forward in WhatsApp. (Source : Unknown) Have to agree with certain points. Some Very Interesting Predictions.. (To what extent it will come true - time only will tell us) Auto repair shops will disappear. A petrol/diesel engine has 20,000 individual parts. An electrical motor has 20. Electric cars are sold with lifetime guarantees and are only repaired by dealers. It takes only 10 minutes to remove and replace an electric motor. Faulty electric motors are not repaired in the dealership but are sent to a regional repair shop that repairs them with robots. Your electric motor malfunction light goes on, so you drive up to what looks like a car wash, and your car is towed through while you have a cup of coffee and out comes your car with a new electric motor! Petrol pumps will go away. Street corners will have meters that dispense electricity. Companies will install electrical recharging stations; in fact, they’ve already started in the developed world. Smart major auto manufacturers have already designated money to start building new plants that only build electric cars. Coal industries will go away. Gasoline/oil companies will go away. Drilling for oil will stop. So say goodbye to OPEC! The middle-east is in trouble. Homes will produce and store more electrical energy during the day and then they use and will sell it back to the grid. The grid stores it and dispenses it to industries that are high electricity users. Has anybody seen the Tesla roof? A baby of today will only see personal cars in museums. The FUTURE is approaching faster than most of us can handle. In 1998, Kodak had 170,000 em- ployees and sold 85% of all photo paper worldwide. Within just a few years, their business model disappeared and they went bankrupt. Who would have thought of that ever happening? What happened to Kodak and Polaroid will happen in a lot of industries in the next 5-10 years … and most people don't see it coming. Did you think in 1998 that 3 years later, you would never take pictures on film again? With today’s smart phones, who even has a camera these days? Yet digital cameras were invented in 1975. The first ones only had 10,000 pixels, but followed Moore's law. So as with all exponential tech- nologies, it was a disappointment for a time, before it became way superior and became mainstream in only a few short years. It will now happen again (but much faster) with Artificial Intelligence, health, autonomous and electric cars, education, 3D printing, agriculture and jobs. Forget the book, “Future Shock”, welcome to the 4th Industrial Revolution. Software has disrupted and will continue to disrupt most traditional industries in the next 5-10 years. UBER is just a software tool, they don't own any cars, and are now the biggest taxi company in the world! Ask any taxi driver if they saw that coming. Airbnb is now the biggest hotel company in the world, although they don't own any properties. Ask Hilton Hotels if they saw that coming. Artificial Intelligence: Computers become exponentially better in understanding the world. This year, a computer beat the best Go-player in the world, 10 years earlier than expected. In the USA, young lawyers already don't get jobs. Because of IBM's Watson, you can get legal advice (so far for right now, the basic stuff) within seconds, with 90% accuracy compared with 70% accuracy when done by humans. So, if you study law, stop immediately. There will be 90% fewer lawyers in the future, (what a thought!) only omniscient specialists will remain. Watson already helps nurses diagnosing cancer, its 4 times more accurate than human nurses. Facebook now has a pattern recognition software that can recognize faces better than humans. In 2030, computers will become more intelligent than humans. Autonomous cars: In 2018 the first self-driving cars are already here. In the next 2 years, the entire industry will start to be disrupted. You won't want to own a car anymore as you will call a car with your phone, it will show up at your location and drive you to your destination. You will not need to park it you will only pay for the driven distance and you can be productive while driving. The very young children of today will never get a driver's license and will never own a car. This will change our cities, because we will need 90-95% fewer cars. We can transform former parking spaces into green parks. About 1.2 million people die each year in car accidents worldwide including distracted or drunk driving. We now have one accident every 60,000 miles; with autonomous driving that will drop to 1 accident in 6 million miles. That will save a million lives plus worldwide each year. Most traditional car companies will doubtless become bankrupt. They will try the evolutionary approach and just build a better car, while tech companies (Tesla, Apple, Google) will do the revolutionary approach and build a computer on wheels. Look at what Volvo is doing right now; no more internal combustion engines in their vehicles starting this year with the 2019 models, using all electric or hybrid only, with the intent of phasing out hybrid models. Many engineers from Volkswagen and Audi; are completely terrified of Tesla and they should be. Look at all the companies offering all electric vehicles. That was unheard of, only a few years ago. Insurance companies will have massive trouble because, without accidents, the costs will become cheaper. Their car insurance business model will disappear. Real estate will change. Because if you can work while you commute, people will abandon their towers to move far away to more beautiful affordable neighborhoods. Electric cars will become mainstream about 2030. Cities will be less noisy because all new cars will run on electricity. Cities will have much cleaner air as well. Electricity will become incredibly cheap and clean. Solar production has been on an exponential curve for 30 years, but you can now see the burgeoning impact. And it’s just getting ramped up. Fossil energy companies are desperately trying to limit access to the grid to prevent competition from home solar installations, but that simply cannot continue - technology will take care of that strategy. Health: The Tricorder X price will be announced this year. There are companies who will build a medical device (called the "Tricorder" from Star Trek) that works with your phone, which takes your retina scan, your blood sample and you breath into it. It then analyses 54 bio-markers that will identify nearly any Disease. There are dozens of phone apps out there right now for health purposes.
  25. So far this is the best plan from Hyderabad to Goa. This information can be helpful for many members. No idea on this route. Preveously we used to do via Bijapur. It is not so great, too many speed bumps and villages. I think you can try via Basavana. May be you will the planned stopover.
