  1. Hyderabad > Nagpur > Raipur > Ranchi as suggested by maps. Raipur has decent stays. Drive is going to be hectic in two days. Plan to start early form Hyderabad. Roads are decent but they get bad towards the end of the journey.
  2. Better to talk with hotels. Hotels in Sagar are generally not luxurious. I think some of them should allow, since they look like resorts. Keep an eye on stray animals, avoid night drives. Start as early as possible. Limited food options en-route.
  3. Most detailed log that read in the recent times. Thank you for contributing to the community. Definitely a go to guide.
  4. Kollur is a decent place to invest as long as you get hold of a decent builder. Kollur has plenty of small builders, vet carefully and decide on the investment. Identification of a decent builder is a uphill task.

  10. Looks like this will continue for few more years. Overall, there is a huge improvement on this road compared to the nightmare of last few years.
  11. Thank you for sharing the latest update. How many kilometer of road is still bad?
  12. Land is very close to railway track any noise issue?
  13. Thank you for the latest update. Very true. Late nigh drives on this section is pretty scary. Plenty of stray animals literally live on the highway. We had a pretty close call.
  14. I think they have monthly pass between two tolls, not sure if they have monthly pass for the entire Hyderabad ORR. What exactly is price per kilometer cost on Hyderabad ORR?
  15. There is lot of controversy on this attempt. Definitely a threat to an average driver. When you are traveling at 400km/hr, cars that are doing around ~150 km/hr feels like a stand still object on the road.
  16. Camping on your own may not be a suggestible option. Place is pretty isolated during the night. Villagers may not be happy about camping. If there is any camping provider, it should be fine with a group.
  17. Fantastic trip, you shared very useful information. It will definitely help many of our readers to plan and execute. Will add this place in my todo trips. Love this picture. Appreciate, how you are passionate about traveling and showing others how it should be done. Kids will have lifetime memories. Hope some day they will read your log. Did you guys cary food? Is it part of package?
  18. Thank you for sharing the helpful information.
  19. 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.
