  1. Hyderabad to Bangalore stretch is a dream to drive. However when I did this stretch in Feb-2020 , I observed lots of speed breakers came up recently which makes the drive little boring. So watch out for more speed breakers. Apart from this absolutely no other complain. Sent from my SM-M305F using Tapatalk
  2. There is another route from HYDERABAD to BHUBANESWAR , Which I am planning to take . HYDERABAD-BHADRACHALAM-MALKANGIRI-JEYPORE-KORAPUT-RAYAGADA-ADAVA-MOHNA-TAPTAPANI-DIGAPAHANDI-BERHAMPUR-BHUBANESWAR. This route till DIGAPAHANDI is full of GHATs and very scenic. If the road conditions are ok, Driving in this route would be a absolute bliss. I am quite familiar with the route JEYPORE-KORAPUT-RAYAGADA-ADAVA-MOHNA-TAPTAPANI-DIGAPAHANDI-BERHAMPUR-BHUBANESWAR though not sure how is the road condition in these recent years having not been to my home town (BUBANE
  3. Friends ....I hope all of you are doing well in such Pandemic Time.....Wishing all of you to have safe on-coming road trips ....as everything slowly opening up . I am planning for a road trip from Hyderabad to Bhubaneswar around end of October-2020. My hometown is Bhubaneswar . This trip was planned in Apill-2020 with a 2 days halt at Vizag but cancelled due to lockdown.

  4. Have you captured any picture of these routes? Naldurg to Tuljapur pathetic....Surprise ...I just did this in Jan last week during Nashik travel.... When you take Tuljapur exit from NH65 after Naldurg....the 1st 100 to 150 meter is pathetic....their after till Tiljapur road is good to very good though there are frequent speed breakers before 2 to 3 km to TULJAPUR..Even inside Tuljapur the road is very good (newly made). After Tuljapur till NH52 flyover...(It is only 2km) the road is very fine. Anyway I have captured all the pictures of these roads. I will upload in the thread "HYDERABAD TO SH
  5. The wait time is increased due to slow response of detecting machines. Ideally the gates should open at least 20 to 30 meter before the vehicle reaches. In reality we literally have to stop in front of the gate and than the gate open. In one occasion I also have to reverse my car and move forward again for opening of the gate.

  6. Hello Ragi, I just returned from Shirdi last week. I am going to put my details in "HYDERABAD TO SHIRDI RECENT ROUTE CONDITION" . I used to keep this thread updated every year....[emoji3][emoji3][emoji3]. I started using the below route from 2018 and for me it is the best one. It will not disappoint you at all. HYDERABAD-ZAHEERABAD-HUMNABAD-OMERGA-NALDURG-TULJAPUR-OSMANANBAD-BEED-PADALSINGHI-PATHARDI-TISGAON-MIRI-VAMBHORI-RAHURI-SHIRDI In this stretch it is little patchy just before PATHARDI (around 5km) and before Shirdi (around 20km) ....Rest all are very good. RAHURI is in between Ahe
  7. The NASHIK and SHIRDI trip completed and I will share the details in coming days . The very first important thing that comes to my mind is the usage of FASTAG . All the TOLL gates till NASHIK (Total 6) has been equipped with FASTAG gates. In a particular TOLLGATEs there is either only 1 or 2 CASH GATEs and rest all are FASTAG gates. I guess through out our country the situation could be same and there is huge advertisement of FASTAGs in the highways. The FASTAGs gates are still equipped with persons but they just sitting quite and help you in-case the gates does not open.
  8. Thank you Sagar. Travelling to Nashik tomorrow(25th Jan) early morning. All set for a long drive. I will capture pictures of latest road condition . Sent from my SM-M305F using Tapatalk
  9. Very nice post Paresh.This route is very famous due to Shirdi travel....The WagonR mileage is awesome..... [emoji108][emoji108][emoji108] I am also starting to Nashik tomorrow early morning...and I will go via Tuljapur-Osmanabad-Beed. I hope the stretch between Omerga till Naldurg must have been improved since my last travel in March-2019. Sent from my SM-M305F using Tapatalk
  10. Yes Sagar this is a nice hotel in the stretch between Hyderabad to Naldurg....I guess between Omerga to Naldurg.... I have been to there most of the time in this stretch and it is a very nice Hotel.... Sent from my SM-M305F using Tapatalk
  11. Yes Sagar....From last 2 year there is not much long drives due to lots of official international travels and work stress. Only able to do our regular drive that is SHIRDI and PUTTAPARTHI.....[emoji3][emoji3][emoji3] This year luckily it again starts with Shirdi but this time it is mainly NASHIK for some personal work....So thought of covering Shirdi as well...[emoji3][emoji3] However this year there are some trips lined up like HYD to PONDICHERRY ,HYD TO BHUBANESWAR(my home town) ,Kerela Trip...Let's see how it goes...

  12. I just purchased FASTAG from ICICI and going to put on my CAR. Lets see how it goes.
  13. Hello JVK9999, If you are planning to travel to Shirdi , Take a look at the below thread and you may try the route HYDERABAD-ZAHEERABAD-HUMNABAD-OMERGA-NALDURG-TULJAPUR-OSMANABAD-BEED-PATHARDI-AHEMADNAGAR-SHIRDI. This route will not disappoint you as compared to other routes. I am driving on this route regularly from 2018 and very happy about it . It may not be 100% smooth road but for sure 80% of the road is excellent and than 10% is good and than 10% is average. Try this route.
  14. Travelling from Hyderabad to Nashik (on 25th Jan 2020) and will return via Shirdi . Plan is as below. 1. Travel to Nashik from Hyderabad via Zaheerabad-Humnabad-Omerga-Naldurg-Tuljapur-Beed-Pathardi-Ahemednagar-Nashik 2. Return from Nashik to Hyderabad via Shirdi-Ahmednagar-Pathardi-Beed-Tuljapur-Naldurg-Omerga-Humnabad-Zaheerabad I consider this route to Shirdi/ Nashik is still best among all as I am regularly driving from 2017 on this route. Last time I traveled on this route in March-2019 as per my earlier blog in this thread. I hope the road condition will s
  15. Is IFFCO-TOKIO is a good insurance company for CAR ....They are offering ZERO-DEP even after SIX YEARs and that to a very attractive premium price. I am looking to renew the insurance of our car HYUNDAI EON MAGNA (PETROL+LPG KIT) ....It is a 6 year old car and this will be the 7th Insurance ...I see HDFC ERGO without zero dep premium is 4980 excluding GST and IFFCO-TOKIO is 4381 excluding GST. Only EDELWEISS & IFFCO-TOKIO are offering ZERO-DEP policy. This price is from PolicyBazaar.com. Any suggestion ?
