  2. Awesome trip bro. This will be a good reference for the members planning trip to Goa (specially with kid). Specifically for Goa handy information plays a key role. Keep sharing 👍

  3. Just came back from hyd on Saturday. Sadly, Belgaum-Khanapur-Bhimgarh WLS seems to be equally bad as chorla with lot of potholes and oncoming traffic in Bhimgarh WLS. Anmod ghat by itself is quite good, with the exception of the edges of the concrete roads and dumb oncoming drivers who want to overtake on blind curves. Surprisingly didn't seem so bad on the way to Hyd 2 weeks ago, probably because we hit Bhimgarh WLS early morning about 7am. I would say its even-steven at the moment between chorla and anmod. Started at 5.30am from near Paradise and reached North Goa by 6.30pm, w

  4. This is exactly what we needed brother, thanks for the detailed write up. We are leaving for Goa tonight, at around 3 AM, and this gives us a better picture of the journey ahead. We're also travelling with kids, couple of 2 year olds 😀 We're travelling to South Goa, so I am assuming that the route through Mollem should be good. Do suggest any other tips if you have.

  7. One of my friends recently visited from Bangalore. His obvious dialogue? Let's eat Biryani! I don't have any favourite place. I switch between different place, since we have so many options. Wan't to know which place is top of the list. I have created a poll based on google reviews. My personal favourite: Paradise Shah-Ghouse Share your favourite place

  8. I am planning to go on a road trip from Hyderabad to Goa in the first week of December. I will be driving my 2011 Nissan Micra XV (Petrol). I have a 2 year old baby traveling with me. Need some sugesstions -What is the best route? - Will a small car like Micra be safe to take for such a distance? - Can i do non-stop or should i take a halt? - Is it safe to start late at night from Hyderbad, considering that i am traveling with family? Your inputs will be very helpful.

  10. Hi Dhruv, Yes we did make the trip. Started from Hyderabad at 3 in the morning and reached our hotel in South Goa by 7:30 in the evening. Took a couple of long breaks including a detour into Belgaum for food. The roads are good but for a couple of patches in between. The road from Belgaum to Anmod is bad. The jungle stretch is narrow and tests your patience especially if there's a slow driver in front of you. The ghats from Anmod are alright again. We're travelling back tomorrow mostly on the same route. Will give you more updates once back.

  12. Chorla, Tilari ghats are specifically for north. Anmod can be taken for South, looks like that also has few bad patches. Not sure if roads are good via hubli and Karwar. Traffic was very normal in chorla and tilari. There wasn't any place where I was stuck in Goa or enroute Goa due to traffic.

  13. Awesome post, that was one leisure trip. Unfortunately my daughter is 8 and she is having her online classes and I have my office, so I am planning to hit the road and be back within 4-5 days. Planning for a day's drive in my Safari Storme (with 85 k on odo so slightly skeptical) from Hyderabad to Goa. How are the ghat sections from Belgaum to Goa, truck jams or not (I travelled 2-3 years ago in Feb and it was hell of jams due to unloading at Jetties). I am planning to south Goa, hence, I think the route will be a little different. Any suggestions will be helpful. Thanks

Both adult passenger’s neck protection was good. Driver chest showed marginal protection, while passenger chest protection was good. Driver and passenger knees showed marginal protection as they could impact with dangerous structures behind the dashboard supported by the Tranfascia tube. Driver tibias showed weak and adequate protection while passenger’s tibias sh

  15. Well we're two families, and one of the reason we're starting so early is because kids will be sleeping for the first 6 hours or so. We're honestly hoping that they co operate for rest of the journey. 😀 And ya, belated Happy Birthday to your kid 🎂🎉

  20. Straigth through seoni. If you go in morning there won't be many and Forest guards will let you go. I didn't find it 3-4 KM - or may be I was too happy to see quick pass through but it didn't take us more than 10-15 mins to go through that stretch.

  36. Hi All, Did the Mollem-Anmod-Belgaum-Vijayapura-Jevargi-Gulbarga-Humnabad-Hyd yesterday. Apart from a few broken patches and some under construction patches between Khanapur-Belgaum, the roads are beautiful. Started at 5.15am and reached at 6.30pm. Patancheru to Begumpet took nearly 2hrs for a 50km stretch 😵 Ridiculous traffic, regretted not taking the ring road Unless Chorla gets done up, the above route is the best bet. I will be returning around 18-19th November. Will update further.

  37. KORAPUT is a part of south orissa and it is basically a hill town. It is abasically a tribal area but has developed into a decent town with all modern facilities. Not only KORAPUT but its surroundig areas like JEYPORE,SUNABEDA, MALKANGIRI,DAMANJODI,RAYAGADA are very very decent towns. This south orissa is full of DENSE FOREST, MOUNTAINS ,DENSE FOREST etc ....The SOUTH ORISSA trip itself is a full itnery . There are many water falls .....small montaiin rivers along the way ..... If we see GOOGLE MAP the stretch BHADRACHALAM-MALKANGIRI-KORAPUT-RAYAGADA-ADAVA-MOHNA-DIGAPAHANDI is 581

  41. Here is a detailed overview of the Road Journey from Hyderabad to Dewas, which is the same as the road to Indore until a place called Double Chowki, from where Indore Bypass is only 23 more km on NH-47, and from where I cut north towards Dewas. Hyderabad to Nagpur (27th July 2020) Nagpur to Betul (28th July 2020) Betul to Dewas (28th July 2020) Driving time for Nagpur (Le Meridien, South end of the City) to Dewas (Nagpur -> Betul -> Harda -> Kannod -> Double Chowki -> Dewas) was around 9-10 hours (including occasional stops, no scenic detour in

  43. This needs to be surely known as the rubber for long in it's tyre shop starts to gets brittle when it is kept unused for a longer period. This also happens when the tyres on the car are not used for a longer period. Bobbles are formed on the tyres causing a bumping effect while running on the road for every rotation of it's wheel.

  44. Thank you Ranger. When I was replacing the old tyres with new ones , I just checked both were 185/60R15 84H, TUBELESS & STEEL BELT RADIAL. I did not check any other thing (I think I should have checked the MANUFACTURING DATEs.....Will go down and check now.....?). Anything other to check when taking a new tyres ?

  45. I had BRIDGESTONE tyre in TOYOTA ETIOS VD-SP, but after crossing 41000 km , both front tyres punctures.It took me around 3 to 4 months to detect the punctures as they leak very slow. The pressure was coming down to 25/22/18 PSI from 35PSI in 3 to 4 days time. First time when I really suspect the puncture ,I got them repaired in HARSHA TOYOTA during my annual service . After that FRONT RIGHT was ok but FRONT LEFT started giving issues after some long drives. After 1st repair at HARSHA TOYOTA , the front left tyre punctured 3 times around the same place. By that time my ODO was reading aro

  46. I guess most of us seems to confuse between tyres, rims and which one to go! Regarding Rims: Don't change your rim size unless you know what you are doing. This will directly impact suspension setup. Some of the brand top cars do give higher rim size. If suspension parts are same for lower model vs high end model, it's safe to upgrade. This is not true for luxury or performance oriented cars. They do have different suspension parts for top end variant. Is it worth to upgrade my rim size? Unless you are driving performance oriented car or by upgrading to higher ri

  47. New 4-lane toll highway connecting Telangana and Andhra Pradesh. Drive between to Narketpally to Ongole is bliss. Road quality is excellent. Total Distance : ~240 Kilometers from Narketpally to Ongole (medarametla). Current state: Almost completed, Work is pending near few bridges and villages. NAM express improves the connectivity across different cities. 1. Hyderabad to Chennai route: Hyderabad --> Narketpally --> Mirayalaguda --> Piduguralla ---> Addanki --> Ongole --> Chennai 2.
