Recommended Posts

 

 

Note: Lockdown is over not the Pandemic. We request travelers to follow all safety measures.

 

We have taken at most care like,

-          Used personal car for all drive.

-          Carried homemade food and water during all travel.

-          Used face mask and sanitizers wherever required.

-          Avoided crowded places.

 

My companion in travel.

-       Car Baleno Zeta CVT – reliable partner.

-       Smartphone Poco f1 – all the photos were taken with it.

 

Difficulty level:

-       No problem for elders and kids.

-       During rain area becomes slippery. So be careful.

 

Road conditions:

-       Roads are good for khadakwasla dam.

-       10 km stretch near to Panshet dam is bit bad, need careful driving during rain.

-       There are hotels available in route to panshet dam. One can enjoy boating near to panshet dam

 

Best time to visit:

-       The monsoon (Jul-Sept) is the best season to visit the place with family and tourists will not regret having chosen the destination.

-       If you hate crowed and wants to enjoy peacefully then plan trip on weekdays.

*Main entry to the dam is closed due to Covid19. One can access the backwater and it is very scenic.

 

Khadakwasla dam was closed because of Covid19 and police restricted tourist entry. Hence not able to explore it. But route to panshet dam was scenic and I enjoyed it.

This was completely solo trip as home minister was busy with Dussera preparation.

    • KIA Seltos scored 3 Stars in NCAP
      KIA Seltos scored 3 stars in global crash test.




       

       
      ADULT OCCUPANT
      The protection offered to the driver and passenger head was adequate, both passenger and driver head bottomed out the airbags. 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 showed good and adequate protection. The bodyshell was rated as unstable and it was not capable of withstanding further loadings. Footwell area was rated as unstable. The car offers standard SBR for driver and passenger. All of the above explained the three stars for adult occupant protection.
       
       
      CHILD OCCUPANT
      The child seat for the 3 year old was installed FWF with the adult belt and was not able to prevent excessive forward movement during the impact while it offered poor protection to the head as it contacted with the interior of the car and good protection to the chest. The 18 month old CRs was installed with adult belt rearward facing. The head showed good protection and the chest was protected. The CRSs did not show incompatibility. The manufacturer refused to recommend the CRSs. The vehicle does not offer 3 point belts in all seating positions and it does not offer ISOFIX anchorages. All of the above explained the two stars for child occupant protection.

    • 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.
