  1. Kalsubai Peak - The Everest of Maharashtra Last year after successful completion of Harishchandra gad trek, I decided to do Kalsubai terk in year 2022. This time the real challenge was taking 2 kids to this summit. But they managed very well. The success of this trek goes to them. Base Village We started our journey from Sangamner (previous night we reached here from Pune) in the morning with 4 adults and 2 kids. The base village was somewhat 2 hrs journey from Sangamner and we reached there by 11:00 am. After small rest we started for summit. I have already booked our stay with Mr. Jagan Khade (mobile no +91 8605963102). He was very friendly and took utmost care of us. I will highly recommend his service. How is a josh? High sir.... High Sir.... High Sir Trek starts by crossing small stre am of water which has farming land around of most of the villagers. Initial 20% of the trek is easy where you just have to cross rocks, muddy tracks and shrubs. Path for the trek is laid out so very well that it is kind of impossible to get lost. Around 2:00 PM we reached base camp. There we had our lunch in Mr. Khade’s hotel ‘Hotel Adaresh’. We then started for Summit climb to witness sunset. Campsite I would advise you to wear good quality sports/trek shoes for this trek as during rain, the path gets very slippery and needs some good grip for safety. There are various small shacks build-up by villagers throughout the trek where you can re-energize yourself but I would advise you to carry at least 2 liters of water per head and energy drinks to avoid cramps. Once you reach around 50% of the trek comes one of the difficult parts which is climbing up an iron ladder. It is an extremely tricky part of the trek which can prove fatal. Ladders are at an angle of around 70 degrees, so you need to be extremely cautious. It took us around 2 hours to reach the camp 4. We identified place for camping and pitches our tents. Around 5 PM we decided for Summit push with Kids. After climbing last ladder we reached peak. The view The view During short break Hureee we officially graduated from the top of peak. Happiness after summit climb Me & my trek partner Climber family At the top you have small temple of Kalsubai. The view from the top is extravagantly awesome, it just mesmerizes you in its beauty and leaves you awestruck the whole time you are at the top. Both my partners watching sunset Peak in the evening Last sunset of 2021 After clicking some memorable photos and cherishing the beauty of Mother Nature, we decided to return to our tents just below the peak. We called it as acclimatization round. Night was terrible it was windy and temperature was around 6 deg. But somehow kids managed it. Home for night Chilling night Next morning, we decided for final summit push. Being very cold myself and my brother in law decided to go to peak and others decided to rest in tents. We again climbed the peak for beautiful sunrise and here are few clicks. Peak around 5 PM First light Gearing up to capture sunrise Temple during sunrise me waiting for first sunrise 2022 View from top First sunrise of 2022 Love you Zindagi Me & my brother in law (Chaitanya). He is a true climber and my support during this trek. 2022 & me The peak & campsite 2022 & Aarav (my son). Happy faces We started to descend around 9:45 am. You need to be extra cautious and careful while descending as one wrong foot can be dangerous. It took us around 2 hrs to reach our base camp. We then took breakfast and again descend to base village where we had our cars parked. Chai During descend.

How is the road to Athirappilly waterfalls? I loved driving on the forest road towards the waterfalls in 2017.

  7. Insurance should take care of it. I think you need to make to separate claims. If you can add pictures, it can be more helpful. You can also take second opinion outside the showroom for insurance claim. You can visit Stunnerz Auto Hub, Jubilee hills. Ask for Harish and refer my name.

  10. Thank you Gowtham and Sagar gaaru. Before jumping on to the detailed flow of my latest trip, I would like to thank you guys first for creating and actively moving in this platform. By the way, I am a solo bike rider who takes a max of 10 days of personal time off from work (of every 12 months, and these 10 days are only for my long bike ride). Mostly I take these 10 days from the month of December, because it will not impact business and company much, and I like foggy views, year-end feeling, etc. (Actually, December has its own advantages in my case, but it's completely a different story so not covering here) Coming to the details: (This is to the people who all are reading and planning a long ride to Kerala) 11th December: -> 5:00 AM: Done with all the setup by marking this sheet (https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/e/2PACX-1vQR7v2txYCS7aX410oyE3EmiwaoBqb8JurF782LSGIpijCWResBEKh8JFdteKDMwIY_FHRkAKx70F2R/pubhtml) -> Around 6:00 AM: Done with Breakfast 2 Idly -> 6:57 AM: Started from home -> Took 3 total stops (Max 20 Mins each) in between, before reaching Bangalore. -> Reached hotel in Bangalore at some around 6:30 in the evening (STOP for the Day 1) Max speed: 110, Min speed: 60 KMPH 12th December: -> Started around 8:00 AM from Bangalore and reached 900 woods - (Meppadi -> Thollayiram Rd, Vellarimala, Kerala) (Reached around 6:00 PM) 5 total stops (Max 30 Mins each) -> Jungle Stay, Night tent camping, sunrise trekking + food was arranged by http://www.wildind.in/ (It was really a great experience to stay in a jungle, in a small tent without having signals for communication... If you are using Jio, you will get some least strength of the signal at a certain point if you stand on a rock and it will not help us in any way to get cellular network, Mine is airtel, so it was a complete shut) 13th December: Early morning: Trekking managed by Wildind as mentioned above. (Trust me, it was the best trekking in my life till date, and below pic is a proof for that) (Dear admin, you can remove the below pic, if it is crossing the terms and conditions of this site) Started from Jungle to Meppadi (around 12:30 PM and reached a hotel in Meppadi around 3:30 PM) -> Pookodi lake from Hotel (Worst Lake I have ever seen in my life) -> 2 Hours literelly wasted here. -> Night at Hotel Meppadi Max speed: 100, Min speed: 30 KMPH 14th December: -> From hotel to Chembra peak (Started at 6:00 AM from hotel to the ticket counter of Chembra peak, because only 200 visitors are allowed/day to climb it) Chembra peak is literally Heaven... I enjoyed it a lot. -> Returned to hotel from Chembra peak by around 2 PM. -> Started to Athrirapalli from hotel (and in between covered Lakkidi viewpoint) around 3:00 PM and took a stop for night stay, in Kodassery (This is near to Athrirapalli), and reached hotel by 10 PM. Max speed: 100, Min speed: 30 KMPH 15th December: -> Started to Athriapally water falls from hotel around 7:30 AM and reached to it in 50 Mins (Again, it was a thrilling bike ride experience in a scenic forest road) -> Next stop: Vazhachal Waterfalls (Actually next stop of Athrirapally was some other waterfalls, but I forgot the name of it) -> Vazhachal Waterfalls to Hotel, then started to Munnar on the same day and reached Munnar by exactly 5:00 PM -> 5:15 PM: Kalari Kshethra (and the people here are very sweet and honest, they helped me to get a good scenic stay) -> Stay. 16th December: -> Started from Hotel (Some around 5:00 AM) and covered below Sunrise, ponmudi Hanging bridge Ponmudi dam Chunayanmakkal waterfalls Varayattumotta Peppara Wildlife Sanctuary and all the above were very close to each other so all these were done by around 10:30 AM, and on the same day below (actual Munnar) was also covered Munnar Tea gardens If you have a bike, I suggest you to ride on the same road of Anamudi (I don't think a car can go well in that road, but you will not forget it in your life) Anamudi Eravikulam National Park Photo point Mattupetty Dam -> Started from hotel in Munnar to Kodaikanal (Reached Hotel in Kodaikanal by around 9 PM) 17th December: Done with Dolphin's nose Echo point Pine Tree Forest Guna Caves Green Valley Viewpoint Kodaikanal Lake Bryant Park Coaker's Walk (Actually Coaker's Walk was covered on 18th December, because of full fog, view was bad on 17th December so re-visited Coaker's Walk on 18th December) Solar Observatory -> Again, we can cover everything in Kodai just in 8 hours, because all places are very close to each other. -> Back to Hotel. 18th December: -> Kodai to Bangalore (3 rest stops, Max 20 mins each) -> Stay Max speed: 110, Min speed: 60 KMPH 19th December: -> Bangalore to Hyderabad (3 rest stops, Max 20 mins each) Max speed: 110, Min speed: 60 KMPH 20th Back to work. Only point where I was little upset is... I was not able to cover Wayanad properly and skipped Alappuzha because of covid restrictions, but anyway added Kodai to my list and I enjoyed a lot in Kodai. Pranamam 🙏

Total Tolls: 700(Fast tag) Route expedition Via Google Maps Carried Snacks, water can and other essentials to shorten our halts during the journey due to covid fear.... ** SINGLE HAND DRIVING Day 1: Route: Hyderabad- Mahanandi- Gandikota Total distance covered on day 1 : 408 KMS 2nd Short trip post Lockdown and all went well. Started by 5:30 AM from Hyderabad and reached Mahanandi by 10:30 AM with 2 breaks in between. As usual roads are pleasant to drive until Kurnool and in Kurnool flyover works are going on... so a bit of off-roading..After kurnool roads are excellent until Nandyala...with sceneic views around you in between the rock mountains and also No highway traffic at all.. But make sure to look out for the Speed guns on this strech(Kurnool to Nandyala).... Mahanandi: After Darshan and Lunch .... started towards Gandikota via Anantapur-Tadipatri-Guntur road(RD 223).. Its a single line road without pathholes until we touch the NH40 again. After crossing Allagadda.. again we changed the line to single road towards jammalamadugu... Not that great road but OK.. But from Jammalamadugu to Gandikota the roads are in excellent condition.. and definitely one will njoi the scenic views from Jammalamadugu to Gandikota route.. Excellent Landscapes.. Unable to capture the scenes due to the foggy weather.. but you will mesmerized by viewing directly. Jammalamadugu to Gandikota route: Gandikota: Must visit place.. no doubt at all... very scenic... lot of spots to view the beauty of nature... no hassle in reaching the place from Gandikota. Staying: One can find lot of options online for booking tent stay at very reasonable price(600/person to 3k-AC tent) which includes dinner and breakfast as well in it. Temple ruins are other attractions apart from Penna river view. **Adventure things that u can do there is Campfire...kayaking... rock climbing.. ziplining...trekking @ Freakout Adventures camp directly, all are organized by the Govt with well trained me. --> Only backlog is washrooms availability near the camping site.... u have to take the pay and use toilets... which is 1+km away from camp site . --> Also have a mosquito repellent if you are with Kids are allergic with insects. Once the campfire is started all the insects got vanished. --> My suggestion would be book a normal tents in "Freakout Adventures" campsite if you are going with family and kids... they have the Washroom within there camp.. which will be used only by those who booked in it... No hassle of going 1km. **Bluetooth speaker is a must for you to have a pleasant night.. or else you will be end-up listening to others(Drinkers) voices around you. **It is better to visit in groups to njoi more.. Day 2. Gandikota - Belum Caves - Yaganti - Hyderabad Total distance covered: 441 Kms Woke-up around 6AM but.. Sun was no willing to come out of clouds due to the foggy weather.. Missed the Sunrise... After having breakfast at local hotel which was excellent and included in our package and then moved towards Belum caves. Here comes the worst part....One of the worst route I encountered in this trip.. I was unable to find the road without Potholes except when we entered into the villages. Its a matter of 62KMs but it took 1hour 45min to reach the destination, one could understand the road conditions...Drive was only through potholes which I tried to escape It's the 2nd largest and longest cave in INDIA... must visit place for sure. As you get deeper into the cave you will sweat like hell due to the lack of air but its worth of it. Here and there the air ventilation were arranged and bit of lighting also available **Suggest to carry water bottles... towel.. and a good pair of shoes...while going into the Cave Entry fee 65/- for adult and 45/- for kids. Maintained very well... Belum caves: Visited only 70% of the cave due to my kid.. who is a bit scared .. so.. returned back in between. After 2 hours of time spending over there.. moved towards Yaganti. Road is a bit better from Belum caves to Yaganti.. not great but good. In between, you will come across OWK reservoir .. very huge one.. It was awesome and very scenic, tourism boating was also available but unable to ride due to the time constraint. Reached Yaganti by 2:00 PM, this is my all time favorite temple... located in between the mountains.. Had a very nice darshan of Lord Shiva and Lord Basavayya and also Venkateshwara Swamy Idol in the cave. Yaganti: After spending an hour at the temple, travelled towards Hyderabad. Speaking to locals over there.. they suggested me take peapully road(RD 41) to reach Banglore highway(NH 44) which was a very bad decision.. Worst road condition which I had travelled till now... Please avoid this route and take up the other... By some how reached NH 44 highway after travelling for 1.5 hours for just 57 kms.. From there On NH 44 its just cruising until home with 2 breaks in between. Journey with memories

  21. Hello guys, I have a doubt on this note. We bought our car one year before. Recently due to the traffic issues, it got dent on tailgate and on side door. We have enquired the same with the showroom for which they were suggesting replacement and this won't be covered in insurance. Please tell me a best and cheap place in hyderabad to get it recovered.

  22. More update. The road from Indore to Double Chowki is quite decent. I think if you're going to Indore, coming via the Nagpur-Betul-Harda route, going directly to Indore from Kannod along the same highway is best. Dewas-Indore NH3 (A.B. Road) is supremely shit right now with its patchwork of ups and downs, and it cancels out whatever you'd get from the brilliant Ashta-Dewas patch, if you were to cut north from Kannod.

I remember to join a whatsapp group in Feb-Mar2019 discussing about the project and many members paying @2000/SFT with a promise that the handing over will be end-2022. Recently, I happen to visit the site and found an office + closed boundaries and no other signs of development. We are already in 2022 and imagine 3 years of pre-launch marketing. Those people who invested the money elsewhere would have already got 2X returns and can get another 2x i.e total 4X returns, by 2025.

  30. I recently went via this route to Rajahmundry. Hyderabad to Vijayawada is excellent. Vijaywada to Elluru is pretty good, lot of work has been done. Elluru to Rajahmundry is excellent. Garuda food complex is really amazing - got a 5 star look and the food taste is amazing. Its phenomenally better than 7 resort near suryapet.

  37. Lot of debates/discussions going on Hyderabad city speed limits. Plenty of people got challans for driving above 40KMPH. I read one of the tweet from an activist recently. According to him. Not sure about the accuracy on his tweet, but 40 KMPH is pretty unrealistic and tough on people. In my opinion 60 KMPH is definitely ideal and +5KMPH buffer could help in keeping the city speeds in check. According to Hyderabad traffic police. Is it even ideal to drive under 40KMPH? One should be able to maintain 35KMPH to avoid 40 KMPH challan.

  39. Thank you for sharing the latest update. Looks like most of the road work is completed. Garuda is the best option on that section. They have neat restrooms. I had Rasam idly over there, it was amazing.

  42. I drove from Hyderabad to Dewas around 10 days ago. Here's a summary of my experience. You can check my older posts for more detailed updates. I wanted to write this sooner, but life came in the way. I'm going to try my best to put down what I remember faithfully. Day 1: Gachibowli area to Le Meridien Nagpur: Hyd to Telangana Border (Penganga Bridge). Best road quality in the entire journey. Just plain superior. In parts you can speed past 130-140 as well if your car, and your temperament support it. A few jumps / uneven patches in the part that goes past Adilabad but nothing that'll cause serious trouble of any sort. If I recall correctly there were some bits where there are diversions for road fixing, but you should see them coming from afar, and cross those parts with caution. The road upto the border checkpost has also been improved. Earlier there was a super bad patch / under construction area just before the border checkpost after Adilabad, but that's been fixed up. Once you enter MH, many of the patches of bad road have been patched up with pothole filling, but around half a dozen or so bad stretches still remain, so be on guard all the way till Hinganghat. There's one shitty bridge which is still laden with potholes and will require caution. Hinganghat to Nagpur is generally OK but has some holes and you should still observe caution. The construction diversions as you approach Nagpur have all gotten finished and now there's decent road in place (no more diversions for flyover construction). Took me a total of 7 hours from Gachibowli (via KPHB, Pragathi Nagar, Dundigal, as Google Maps suggested) and 6 hours from Medchal, including 2-3 brief stops for tea, refreshment (I carry those things with me) and car windshield cleaning. (Pro-tip: To get to Le Meridien Nagpur, look out for the right turn around this place to go into the service road on the other side, so you avoid the extra 4-5 km of detour Google Maps takes you through) Day 2: Le Meridien Nagpur to Dewas: Went through Nagpur city only, as per Google Directions. It is a pretty OK road, with lots of flyover, and gets you past the city without much fuss. The under-construction patches towards Northern Nagpur where you have the Thermal Power Plant visible on your right have all gotten completed, and there are no more diversions. There is good road, but with the occasional speed breaker before intersections. From Nagpur till MP Border the road is fine, no major issues that I can recall MP border till Betul exit towards Indore also the road is same as before, good quality. In previous posts I had called it the 2nd best quality part of the whole road trip, after the roads in Telangana, and while its quality has not changed much at all, I'll have to call it the 3rd best this time (2nd best one is yet to come). It is still the 2nd best if you are only considering 4 lane. Betul exit towards Harda, a.k.a. good bye 4-lane highway. I took this because I was told by my dad couple months back that the road work in the hills has been completed and the road is fine now. Some have said that the better option is to go via Bhopal. I haven't tried it, last time I went till Hoshangabad and cut west from there (instead of going to Bhopal) and the national highway was still under construction with some rather bad parts as you got closer to Itarsi. Betul exit till Chicholi: OK road, occasional bumps, one set of annoying speed breakers before a temple that comes to the left (I have marked it on the map in one of my previous posts), but overall quite manageable. Not excellent but not bad either. Drive cautiously to dodge the potholes but can easily cruise at 80-90 or more if there's less throughfare. After Chicholi also things are OK-OK, but once you've crossed this place called Alampur, somewhere between Pathakheda and Chiraptla the newly built road starts, which is excellent all the way until the hills end and you emerge amidst farmlands on the other side after crossing Ganjaal river. I'll call it the 2nd best stretch of road I encountered (only exceeded by the Telangana National Highway) because it was such a pleasure to drive through, specially after how the road used to be before the new one got completed. After emerging from the hills until Timarni the road is still good and you can go fast. Once you hit Timarni, things are kinda the same as they were in my past experiences until you cross the Narmada at Nemawar. Go slow and cautiously. Lots of speed bumps until you reach Harda, and then once you cross Harda also it's just manageably OK until the Narmada bridge. After the Narmada crossing, stuff goes rather bad. Road from Nemavar to Kannod, via Khategaon, has degraded further in recent monsoon and has a fair number of caution patches where you'll need to slow down and navigate carefully. Lots of throughfare also, so not much scope to go fast. Definitely the worst section of Day 2. From Kannod till Ashta it's more or less good road. Definitely better than what was there from Narmada crossing until Kannod. Once you get to Bhopal-Indore Road at Ashta, you have 4-lane again, and things are great all the way to Dewas. One could call this the 4th best patch of road overall --- one of the problems unrelated to road quality is that there are too many vehicles that try to hinder you from overtaking them from either side, although I didn't notice as many herds of abandoned cows this time, which was a relief. Day 2 took me 10 hours! Bulk of which was due to the part from Narmada crossing a.k.a. Khategaon until Kannod. If you're headed to Indore, I don't know how things are from Kannod till Indore, or whether it even makes sense for you to go via Nagpur and not through some other route in Maharashtra that would get you to Indore from the south side (Khandwa Road). Hope this helps. Safe travels to everyone.

  46. My travel score is sadly zero. Haven't travelled to those areas yet. I want to first explore Andhra Pradesh, its wildlife, forests, and nature. Particularly East Godavari & West Godavari is blessed with some of the most beautiful places and forests which mostly are unexplored. I have been to Yanam, Nallamalla forest and Maredumilli forest. People say one day is enough, but its not. There's a lot to explore and I need to visit the places again in monsoon. Probably we need to write a blog about must visit places in AP as well. My another favourite place is Kerala. Planned last year but couldn't execute. Planned this year but COVID. Hope I do it next year.

  47. Today, I drove from Pune to Hyderabad and the road condition is good. I started by 6:45 am and reached Hyderabad(Madhapur) by 2 pm. I would strongly recommend getting a FastTag for your car as you can save a lot of time if you have FastTag. In many Toll gates, I saw a very big queue almost 30~40 vehicles in a single toll gate while rest of them are reserved for vehicles with FastTag. FastTag toll gates were almost free all over.

  48. The recommendations for either ways remain the same, You can enjoy the Pulicat lake enroute on Day :1. If you still decide to do more miles on Day : 1 after crossing Nellore, Next big town to choose your stays would be Ongole. But, Nellore is a better town when compared to Ongole.

  50. Golkonda resorts, Ramoji Film city and Palm Exotica resorts is another place to look out for after Alankrita and Leonia. Few other options are Lahari resorts, Hidden Castle, Songs of Earth are recommended too. Pragati resorts, dream valley resorts, Papyrus port resorts have lost their charm offlate. If you are looking out for day outings, You can consider Wonderla, Escape water park at Fort Grand and Mount Opera. If at all you want to consider camping and adventure games, Hills and Valleys resorts, Deccan Trails and Grasswalk would be a few options. I hope this helps you
