    Planing to Road trip in October 2019

    Plan looks good. You can cut down Kanyakumari, don't miss Dhanushkodi/Rameshwaram. Newly laid Dhanushkodi road is fantastic. Beach on both sides of the road. In my opinion, There is nothing much in Chennai to visit. If you want to skip Kanyakumari, you can consider adding Kodaikanal to the list. In this way you get chance to visit a hill station along with beaches.

  7. Andheri to Amravati route is not so great and pretty much time consuming. Plan to start very early in the morning from Andheri (around 4 AM). Most of the roads are partial toll roads in this route. Your Day 2 journey from Amravati to Sambalpur is better that Day 1 and few road works enroute. The road deteriorates after crossing Nagpur. Day 3 route to be taken would be, Sambalpur - Cuttak - Balasore - Belgachia. Except for a few congestions after crossing Balasore, the road is otherwise good. Hotel Up and Above, Hotel Radhey Inn in Amravati and Sheela towers and Grand SIBA in Sambalpur are good options for stay. Do update us back on the latest road conditions once you are done with your trip. Have a safe trip.

My email agt.anjan@gmail.com & phone 8104295470...thanks - Anjan

    Hyderabad to Shiridi by road by car

    Hyderabad to Shiridi, best route changes every month. It keeps on changing, not fixed route. Hyderabad to Naldurga : 4-lane (newly laid toll road) Naldurga to Ahmednagar : 2-lane (average road conditions) Ahmednagar to Shiridi : 4-lane Total drive time including breaks, take around 12~14 hours Early morning is the best time to start from Hyderabad. Since you can skip the traffic around Hyderabad outskirts. There are multiple route options. If you use Google maps and miss a single turn, your entire route will be rerouted. Hyderabad > Naldurg > Tuljapur > Osmanabad > Yedashi > Bhoom > Kada > Ahmendanagar > Shiridi. Make sure you pass through each and every place listed above.

    Planing to Road trip in October 2019

    October is the best time to visit hills. Since you have covered all the hill stations in South India. Only option left out is the coastal drive. There is no point in missing Kanyakumari. Southern tip of India should be covered. Roads are good, most of them are 4-lane sections, there are few single lane sections but the roads are pretty decent. While coming back you can plan Via Bangalore.

    Drive from Hyderabad to Gandikota

    Had a drive to Gandikota with TAG team (Travel adventure group) with 16people in 4 cars. 22.6.2019 Gathered at Gachibowli ORR entrance, had a short introduction among every one and started at 5.30am In over all drive we was connected with WhatsApp live location tracking for all the cars. By 8.30am we halted for having refreshments and breakfast at Udupi bhavan hotel near pebber X road. After the breakfast we started towards gandikota by maintaining avarage speed of all vehicles 90-100kmph, from Kurnool took Kurnool ring road for connecting the Nandyal highway and after crossing bugga village we were bit confused and took help of Gmaps and took diversion towards banaganpally road, after crossing banaganpally we entered into rainy area and view was awesome on the way we stopped for having pics and sceneric view of owk resorvior and we got down to water, later we started to Belum caves and had lunch at roadside hotel and food was bit spicy but overall food is good. Explored Belum caves then started towards to Gandikota and finally reached to Gandikota at 5.30pm. we had explored some places and unpinched the tents, had camp fire and dinner in a rain showers and this was good experience I had. Some of the pictures

    Hyderabad - Pondicherry - Pichavaram and Mahabalipuram if possible could be your best bet if you are thinking on limiting your travel..

    Cut off Kanyakumari from this list covering Mahabalipuram - Pondy - Dhanushkodi and back, I am sure that will cut down some distance!
