Christmas holidays.... planned the trip and very well executed with the support of my spouse and kid.

 

Started at 3:30 Am on 22nd Dec from Hyderabad via NH 44.. It's a pleasure to drive through this route and it's my first-time visit to Bangalore. After entering into the Bangalore got confused with one of the exit at entered into the CV Raman road and got stuck in the traffic around 1 hour. Literally experienced the Bangalore traffic that too on SUNDAY :)

 

My only suggestion to newbie visiting Bangalore or traveling through Bangalore, please take some time to explore the map deeply or ask anyone to go in the right direction. 

 

Road condition from Bangalore to Mysuru(Via NH 275) is Good with a good number of Speed bumps. So have an eye on these speed breakers. 

 

Reached Mysuru at 5:00 PM and checked into the hotel [Reliable service apartments], booked via booking.com

After refreshing, visited Brindavan Gardens(KSR) and had dinner at Hotel Chirag Food court Dabha while returning back to Hotel.

 

It was a long day by driving 729kms, but not challenging. Its a simple and straight road.

image.png.0eea1cc3209fdc1c91bce9fb1df4e5bf.png

 

Checked out from hotel@9:30 AM, visited Mysuru Palace and started towards Coorg @12:45 PM via NH 275.  Road condition is good but not great, From Kushalnagar took SH 91 towards Dubare Elephant camp-Excellent location - easily one can spend around 2 to 3+ hours in the Kaveri river. Due to the Holiday season, the queue for the Elephant camp was very huge, so avoided it and had fun with the family in the river itself and also done the Still water river rafting in it.

 

In between, Mysuru roads were the cleanest and wide roads.

Once we are done with the Elephant camp, started towards our stay at 6 pm which is in Coffee estate. As it was dark,  it was very difficult for us to find the homestay as there are no street lights and its a ghat road.

20191225_071107.jpg.fdf5ed593fe22235352861a375a7e266.jpg

Suggestion- Make sure to reach your homestay/Hotel before 6 PM in Coorg especially if you have booked in coffee estates. .

 ** I have avoided to stay Madikeri, as I want a pleasant place to stay on so choose HOMESTAY  and it was an awesome stay for 2 days in between coffee estate and jungle.

 

Day 3:

Coorg sightseeing

Total distance: 83 km

image.png.64d25cd529c5a8b58ce59f92dcccb1e9.png

Started at 10 AM from Homestay towards Madikeri, it's a ghat road and full of scenic views. It was a challenging road :) 

Visited Raja Seat, Abbey falls and fort as well...while returning we took the NH 275 as my kid was little worried by seeing the ghat roads which we have traveled in the morning and took the long way via Kushalnagar. Had lunch at Fish curry Rice Hotel and it was 3 pm. We still had time to roam, so again visited the Elephant camp and spent 2hrs and then checked into the homestay by 7 pm.

 

Day 4 :

Coorg – Mangalore – Murudeshwara – Goa(Palolem Beach)

Total distance: 446 km

image.png.2216edbba54ed519541bbebb85bcc4c8.png

Planned to start at 5 AM but due to the darkness started at 7 AM from Homestay.

Madikeri was full of due.. the visibility was very low.. slowly crossed Madikeri and started towards Mangalore road and in between the scenes of the mountains were awful while getting down through ghat road.

 

Stopped at Abhi falls – It's a small waterfall point but the scene opposite to the waterfalls was great, spent around 30min by viewing at mountains with some clicks.

Moved towards Mangalore road.. Its a 2 lane road but the road condition was too good until we reach near to Mangalore.

Halted for tiffin @ Hotel New kamadhenu at Kodankeri place. I rate it 4/5.

 

** Before entering into the Mangalore we have crossed 2 toll plazas on NH 73.

 

Time was running out due to the highway traffic on NH 66, decided not to halt until murudeshwar temple. Did the same and reached murudheshwar temple by 3 pm.

Temple location, shiva Idol .. beach all were awesome… As there was no time for us to stay, we shortened our stay and moved towards Goa at 4 pm. From murudeshwar the road condition is Average, due to the heavy vehicle traffic avg speed was between 50 to 60 on NH 66 and most of the road is under construction.

 

Finally entered Goa after 3 hours drive from murudeshwar, our tiredness got vanished by seeing the see view's

.

Not a single toll we encountered on NH 66 after crossing Mangalore until Palolem.

Checked into the hotel @7:11 PM at Palolem.

Hotel Name: Bay leaf resorts.

We got refreshed in 15 min and moved towards beach. My kid and wife were very excited by seeing the environment over there. We roamed around Palolem beach for a while and had some roadside snacks.

Dinner @ Baba's Little Italy restaurant.

Reached room by 1:15 AM after having a nice relaxing time on the beach shack.

 

Day 5:

Palolem Siteseeing.


Our day started a little earlier, by 6 AM we were on the beach and had some fun playing around.

@9am booked a boat for 2000 rs, visited Monkey island, butterfly beach, honeymoon beach and also saw a lot of Dolphins

As it was Amavasya, the water level on the Honeymoon beach was very high and boats were unable to drop us over there.  

 

**My suggestion to one is to have a pocket full of cash if you are in goa.

In Goa, most of the ATMs either won't be working or no Cash boards. I had to wait in queue for an hour as there was only one ATM which was working.

 

In the evening, we had visited the Omellete center which is located exactly at the main entrance of the Palolem beach. He has a wide variety of egg dishes and its fantastic. Must visit the place. (Added the stall Pic)

 

After a beautiful sunset, we moved on to one of the beach shack and had a great dinner. We spent the time until midnight on the beach shore and moved to the room.


 

Day 6:

Palolem – Hubli - Raichur

Total Distance: 483 KMS

Total Time: 10 hrs 43 min

 

image.png.e1e274ed56b982a8c8c63b47379a21c1.png

We decided to start our day a little earlier and moved on to the beach.. We experienced the beautiful sunrise and played around.


 

Started @10 AM from Palolem... As we all know petrol is cheaper compared to that of other places in India. Filled the petrol to Full Tank and checked the Air pressure as well, as it would be a long drive.

 

As I was in south Goa and few locals also suggested me take the route of Raichur rather than going through choral ghats from north GOA.

But, I can say it was a smooth drive until I have reached KADANKOPPA but after that its a Hell of the drive. The road is under construction a lot of diversions and road is not at all good.

Reached Raichur by 9:50 PM, decided to halt there for a night and did the same. As I was not in a condition to drive more as it was 4 more hours for Hyderabad but due to the road condition decided not to drive more.

 

**Please do avoid this Hubli-Raichur road.


 

Day 7:

Raichur – Hyderabad

Total Distance: 207 KMS

Total Time: 4 hrs 6 min

image.png.65de41bb9814d529dd005d82f7c0ab4a.png

Started at 5 AM from Raichur and road condition is very bad until you reach NH 44.

 

Reached Home by 10:05 AM.

 

Completed the Road-trip with full satisfaction and with lots of memories.

      Received form 35 and NOC from SBI on 06 Feb 2021. I was happy that loan closed but next challenge was how to contact RTO of hypothecation removal.
       
      Searched on internet and there was mixed response. 
       
      Contacted few agents, they quoted me charges ranging from 1200 to 2500 based on how urgent we need it.
       
      But decided to give a try by myself. Searched on net and found below link, 
       
      https://www.transport.telangana.gov.in/html/registration-hptermination.html
       

       
      Once you will click it, it will redirect to other link shown as below
       
      https://tgtransport.net/tgcfstonline/Registration/RegistrationOnline.aspx?Trans=HAT
       

       
      click on Hypothecation/ Hire Purchase/ Lease Termination
       
      If you have original RC then click on YES. Then below window will be open
       

       
      Once you will type above details, in next window you will get your full details. I was not sure whose number to be typed at financer mobile number i typed mine alternate number and it worked 😆. Once click you will be directed to slot booking window (image only for ref)
       

      Click on available slot. Once that is done you will be asked to pay charges. (image just for ref) fees is around 635. Take print out of it (important)
       

       
      Once all done take below document to respective RTA. Below documents required
       
      1. Original RC
      2. Printout of slot booking form
      3. Form 35, 2 nos (original)
      4. NOC from bank (original)
      5. Valid insurance (Xerox)
      6. Aadhar (Xerox)
      7. One small polythene pouch to keep original RC in it. At RTA they are charging Rs 5. And for printout it is Rs 10
       
      also keep below doc in case they want (not asked to me)
      1. PUC Xerox
      2. PAN card Xerox
      3. Residence proof
       
      In my case it was RTA Rangareddy. Mine slot booking was on 12 Feb 2021 01:40 to 01:50
       
      Reached there around 12. Agents started chasing me. But i decided not to pay attention. Went to window No 4. Waited for 10 min.
       
      Officer took my documents checked for 30 seconds and issued me slip. Asked me to go to window 6 for photo.
       
      Went to window 6 waited for 10 min. officer took my slip, done some typing on screen took my photo and signature. And told me that RC will be received via post.
       
      Everything done in 30 min of time, no agent. 
       
      Mine application is approved on same day. Now waiting for RC😏

      ** SINGLE HAND DRIVING
       

       
      Day 1:
      Route: Hyderabad- Vijayawada- Dwaraka Thirumala.
       
      Total distance covered on day 1 :  412 KMS
       
      Total Time: 7 hours 8 min with 2 breaks.
       
      Almost after an year planned for a short trip post Lockdown and all went well and a very much needed break.
       
      Started by 4:25 AM from Hyderabad and reached Dwaraka thirumala by 11:15 AM with 2 breaks.

      As usual roads are pleasant to drive until Vijayawada.. But the strech between Vijayawada(Gannavaram) and Eluru is still under construction with lots of diversions. After crossing Eluru via bypass, the roads are in very bad condition from Bhimadole to Dwaraka.
       
      Done with darshanam and spent an hour or so at the temple premises. Started from Dwaraka and halted at friends place in Eluru.

       

       

       

       

      Day 2:
      Started from Eluru at 5:10AM to Vijayawada kanaka durgamma temple and reached by 6:45AM.... 1 hr 36 min journey time.
      Covid rules are strict and darshanam done in 30 min.
       
      Free darshanam is not available via Hill... only through 100/- or 300/- tickets. 
       
      For free darshanam, park the vehicle below the hill and through stairs you need to reach for darshanam which is free.

       

       

      Started towards Amaravathi(Amaralingeswara swamy temple) and opted to go through Guntur road rather than the Karakatta road was not in a good shape. 
       
      Journey was 1 Hr 25 min and Roads are in good to drive

       

      After completing darshanam started towards Suryalanka beach via Guntur.
      It took 2 Hrs 45 min to reach the destination, roads after crossing Guntur are just average and full of patches...road traffic is not much but due the road condition it took long.
       
      Reached Suryalanka Haritha Resort and checked in by 1:28 PM
       
      ** If you are planning to stay in Suryalanka Haritha resort, make sure to book it in a week advance. During weekends the cost of the rooms are high and less on weekdays.
      Rooms are Good, I have took the AC standard room which costed me 2400+taxes. 

      All the rooms including deluxe and started AC rooms are having the Beach view
       
      Cottages are constructed in 2 rows , front row are the Deluxe cottages and backside row are the Standard AC rooms. In standard AC rooms there are 2 rooms, one in Ground floor and other on the first floor. I opted for the 1st floor room for the beach view. 
       
      Note: Rooms are allotted on First come first serve basis, so its better to arrive on time to get the best room(With all functionalities ).  
       
      When it comes to Food options, only Haritha resort restaurant at suryalanka beach and for snacks we can go for the fried fishes along the roadside exactly opposite to the Haritha resort. 
       
      @haritha restaurant, we can order the food to the room  or you can have it in restaurant. Food is above average.
      Obviously, the price card different from the restaurant menu... so a bit high prices for the room service.
      Breakfast is complementary  and available from 8 AM to 9:30 AM which is of good taste and 3 verities of items( Idli, Bonda, Pongal)

      FYI... Below are the price details for reference: 


      Beach Pics:
       

       

       

       

      Maintenance of beach is not bad
       
      Beach closes by 4PM, and police person starts asking everyone to leave the beach after 4PM.. but what we saw is most of them are in the beach until 6PM.. Nobody is listing to them. 
      People staying in resort can visit the beach during the night as well, there are 2 entries from the beach and its an advantage.

      Day-3 Sunrise :

      Started around 9AM from Suryalanka to HYD via Guntur-Sattenapalli road connecting 167A highway and it took us 8+ hours, with 3 breaks. As we are not in a rush to reach HYD so we were travelling at a speed of 60KMPH and the road condition is excellent until hyd from Piduguralla. 
       
      Total Journey was a pleasant one  and that too after a year and that too Post covid lockdown and a much needed one.
       
      Thank you to all the Forum members as well for their roadtrip's, from which I have took some tips and did this trip

      First trip of 2021 has became the best trip till now. Travelled around 3500kms. Planned to visit all the places of southern part but rain has ruined all our plans.
      Heavy rains in Tamilnadu.
       
      Best Moment: 
      Visiting my dream place "Dhanushkodi", The Last Road Of India. Everyone must visit, but not while raining. Goosebumps moment when we reach the destination. The sound of waves at one side, eyes full of happiness at another side, this is what everyone needs. 
       
      Road Conditions:
      Overall the road conditions was awesome with minimum potholes.
      A small suggestion: when you travel through some village, it is better to ask localities about the route than blindly believing on Google Maps. If Stuck in traffic by believing on GMaps.
       
      Expenses:
      Diesel: 18000/-
      Food and beverages: 10000/-
      Room: 15000/-
      Toll Tax: 2100/- 
       
      The best food we ate was Dindigul Thalappakatti biryani.
       
      Funny Incident: 
      Bangalore has fined us for not wearing masks inside the car.
      we are not aware that we should wear mask in car while travelling with windows rolled up.
       
      We were by 250rs each. The fun is police where stopping only outside state cars, they aren't stopping Karnataka registered vehicles.
       
      We found few people travelling in KA registered vehicle, they are not wearing any masks. when we ask police to stop them, Cops answer Thum jhakey roko na ghadi ko". This is kind of discrimination which every traveler hates.

  • Our picks

    • Hyderabad to Gottamgutta, A short weekend getaway..
      Distance: 120 kms.  Road condition: Excellent (upto Zaheerabad) You divert from the highway towards Chincholi forest reserve near the Mahindra factory exit. The road is a single lane road and through the farms. 
        We started from Miyapur around 7 AM in 3 cars. Packed all the food and water. 
      Note: Be sure to carry your shoes as there would be a short trek to reach the banks of the lake. 
      I will let the pictures do the talking.   The road towards the Chincholi forest after getting down the NH 65

      The weather was good as the sun shone gently on us that morning


      The entry gate of the Chincholi forest was very welcome


      Though it was a mud track beyond the gate, the drive was smooth and fun.

       
      The track will is pretty narrow to just fit in 1 car at a time



      Our first pit stop was a small temple enroute amidst the Chincholi forest

      A day before the trip
       
      Planning:
      Road trips in electric cars need some planning when compared to traditional(ICE) cars. 
       
      STEP 1: 
      You can use Tesla website to plan your trip, Select the car that you are planning to take on a drive Check out the website for fun : https://www.tesla.com/trips SF to LA has close to 10+ Tesla super chargers(Distance : 600+ kilometers)
       
      STEP 2: 
      Calculate total charging time required, you can check Tesla website to understand your trip plan Total charging time required on a 616 kilometers trip is 55 minutes Details given above are in ideal conditions: 90% charge before you start, follow speed limits, no opposite wind, no cold weather(below 0C), no snow storm etc In real world, range varies, this is similar to our ARAI mileage Tesla calculates/displays range based on EPA(ARAI), add 15~20% range error All the Tesla Chargers are located close to some of the best food courts/restrooms  Total saving for the trip when compared with gas cars is 52$

    • New e-Pass Requirements by States (March 2021 onwards)
      Hi all,
      I wanted to create the list of states re-imposing e-pass requirements to travel, including  by road.
      Here's what I found. Please add to the list and also once it is lifted, please update the thread.
      I hope it will be helpful
       
      Tamil Nadu
      Dated 9-Mar-2021
      All passengers coming by road and by flight to Tamil Nadu need an e-pass, the state government has decided, in a slew of new rules for domestic and international passengers coming to the state. All passengers from states, except Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka and Puducherry, need an e-pass to enter the state.
