I have just returned from Goa to Hyderabad on Oct 4 2020. Here is the route update (latest)

Take the below route

HYderabad>Zaheerabad>Humnabad>Gulbarga>vijaypur>Bagalkot>Belgum>Goa.

 

Same route to return as well.

 

Things to note:

1)Humnabad to vijaypur is a excellent highway(NH50) just stick to the highway.(do not use the Google maps on this route. Once you hit NH50 from Humnabad to vijaypur via Gulbarga(Kalburgi), Just stick to this highway and do not take any diversion suggested by Google maps. *** 

 

2)From Vijaypur to belguam it's via BagalKot and this road is also excellent, just stick to the highway, and do not take the diversions or shortcuts suggested by Google maps.

 

3) From Belgaum to Goa, take via Khanapur>Anmod>Mollem>goa.(this road is also good with some minor patches here n there but overall strech is good.(**also do not take the Jamboti >chorla ghat route, it's fully damaged due to recent rains and it will be a hell ride****)

 

***Routes suggested by Google maps from belgaum to goa is closed for highway works. If you take the route suggested by Google then you will end up with a huge diversion n rerouting. 

 

****I did not find any decent food joint, most of them are unhygienic, if it's tea n coffe u can get anywhere on road side.  Better carry your food n snacks****

 

Additional Tip: carry your RC, License and insurance Soft or hard copy and PUC certificate(Hard copy) I was stopped by cops along the karnataka n goa.

Thanks for the info.

I need to travel to Calangute, and I was wondering how the road from Belgaum to Calangute via dodamarg?

It would be helpful if you share some insights on this.

This is the most unpredictable section. 
Heavy monsoon and rains.

Thanks Gowtham for that very helpful update. A few questions: any COVID related paperwork that you needed at any checkpoints along the way? Leaving Hyderabad did you take the ORR or just take the BHEL to Patancheru road? Some post suggested avoiding the Khanapur route from Belgaum to Goa. Seems all ok according to your update. Have had tons of times where Google took us onto some crazy village roads and lost time. At what points do we listen to Google and at what points ignore it😁 Finally any suggestions for clean, hygienic eating joints on the route that are open? Thanks a ton

Hello guys, 

I completed Goa trip from Bidar (near Zahirabad) to North Goa and back. Below is the lates update for the period 16th October 2020 to 19th October 2020.

 

Onward journey: 16th Oct 2020

Started 4:30 AM, reached Calangute by 7:30PM, took 3 stops 20 mins each.

Bidar - Zaheerabad - Humnabad - Kalburgi - Jevargi cross- Bijapur - Bagalkot cross - Belguam - Chorla Ghats - North Goa.

 

Return journey: 19th Oct 2020

Started 4:30AM, reached Bidar around 9PM, including Bijapur historical places visit + Lunch at Kamat Hotel (2:30pm - 5pm)

 

Calangute - Panjim -  ponda - mollem - anmod ghats - hemmadga - khanapur - Belgaum - Bagalkot cross - Bijapur - Kalburgi - Humnabad - Bidar.

 

There is a blocked river bridge (attached route pic) between Kalburgi and jevargi due to water overflow, need to take a one hour detour from a village near the river. Single lane road and all traffic diverted from this village only.

 

I found the ponda - mollem - anmod ghats- hemmadga route very beautiful and very smooth. Road from hemmadga to khanapur was single lane road but is clean. This route passes thru Bhimagarh Wild Life Sanctuary which is very beautiful. We crossed this section during sun rise and roads looked heavenly specially thru the sanctuary.

 

Lastly, I found the chorla route a little dangerous to travel with family as the curves are very steep and heavy vehicles moving at high speeds. (May be this was my first experience driving in ghats) I found it little thrilling and mostly because my family was travelling along. 

 

PS: this thread helped me plan the trip successfully and I want to thank each and every contributor for sharing the updates. Hope this little info here will help people plan their travel effectively.

 

Thanks and happy revving!!!

    • Hyderabad to Deverakonda and Nagrajuna Sagar Back Waters
      It was my first road trip in Covid-19 time. My last trip was in Feb-2020 to Kolhapur and since then I was restless for 7 months in Covid. Normally I used to travel during my birthday in July first week and I was planning for a travel despite Covid-19. But the virus did not like the idea and infected me in the end of June and I was almost sick for a month.

      I am planning to travel with family from Goa to Agra by Car.
       
      Please advise the best possible route as I hear that roads via MP are not safe and road conditions are bad.
      Travelled from Bangalore to Goa - the roads were excellent ! 
      Possible travel routes which I could figure out were :
      1) Goa - Mumbai - Udaipur - Agra
      2) Goa - Pune - Vadodra - jaipur - Agra
       
      if anyone has travelled recently - please share your experience and advice.

      Trip Plan – Hyderabad – Kadapa – Tirupati - Tirumala – Srikalahasti - Penchalakona –Miryalaguda
      Vehicle – Maruti Ertiga
      Visited Date - 2nd week of March 2020.
       
      No of People - 4 Members. No of days - 6
       
      As we are just four members so middle and last row seats are folded and made it as Bed for my kids.
       
      I would love for long drives so planned on our vehicle. I always prefer to visit on the way places and want to cover more and more on the trip.
      We should plan well in advance for Tirupati Balaji Darshan. We had planned one month before and booked the 300Rs special entry darshan and booked rooms at All INDIA Arya Vysya Samajam.
       
      Day 1 - Hyderabad to Kadapa – (Distance 415 KM)
      Road Condition - Excellent, Toll -445 Rs.
      We started around 2:00PM from Hyderabad and reached Kadapa by 8:00PM
      I was under impression of 100KM/PH and do not noticed the speed limit is 80KM in the national highway. Speed guns are in place. (1 challana for over speed as I was @91KM/Ph)
      While drive to Kadapa, we search for the hotel and booked it.
      Hotel - Gokul Residency Near TTD kalyana Mandapam (Average and Budget hotel).
       
      Just Started - 

       
      Break -

      Road Condition – Excellent.(without dividers)
      Hotel – All INDIA Arya Vysya Samajam (Any one can book in advance through phone)
      On the way to Tirupati we covered the Vontimitta Kodandarama swamy temple and had lunch in satram (No proper hotels on the way to tirupati).
      Before reaching the Vontimitta we have seen palakova center at right side of the road and the taste is too good. One the way to tirupati many banana shops are there in both side of road.
      We reached Tirumala around 7:00 PM.
       
      Lord Venkateswara Temple(81 Feet Idol) @ Kadapa

       

       
      Kadapa to Tirupati Road( Excellent but no divider)

       
      @Before Vontimitta Palakova center... Taste is super.

       
      Vontimitta -
       

       
      Tirumala Starting Point

        Day 3 – woke up early and came back to Tirupati by bus as we planned to go through steps (3550 steps) and enjoyed a lot in the walkway and had darshan in the evening.
       
      Walk Way--- Kids enjoyed a lot..
       

       
      Day 4 – In childhood, I have visited local places of Tirumala after that I never, hence planned to cover them in this trip and visited these places (Sri Bedi Anjaneyaswami Temple(300 steps up and down), Sila Thoranam, Srivari Paadalu, Sri Venkateswara Museum, Papa Vinasam, Sikhara Darshanam, Temple Museum)
      Mobile GPS is fine to cover these places.
      Checked out from Tirumala and reached Tirupati.
       
      @ Sri Bedi Anjaneyaswami Temple, These squirrel are different and very big and we can see here only.
       
       
      Day 5 – Covered Tirupati Local (Sri Govindaraja Swami Temple, Sri Venkateswara Zoo(Lion Safari) and Chandragiri Palace & Fort.) and started to Penchalakona.
      In the zoo, we can bring our own car inside.
      Lion Safari.

       
      After Lunch, we check-out from Hotel and started towards Penchalakona. ( On the way visited Srikalahasti)
      Tirupati – Srikalahasti – Penchalakona.(Distance – 110Km) Toll -65 Rs
      Road condition – Tirupati to Srikalahasti Avg to below Avg road with heavy traffic.
      Srikalahasti to Penchalakona excellent road without divider, but no proper hotels on this way.
      Reached Penchalakona by 8:30 PM and there were no hotels to stay/food but there was Arya Vysya Satram to stay, we called in advance and booked the room.
      Hotel – Arvya Vysya Satram and Its good.
      There were rooms from Devasthanam but not sure how they are.
