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.

Reason looks pretty silly 😅

Previously, It used to be speed guns now it is face masks. Discrimination is across the country not specific to Bangalore alone.

I was caught twice in due to speeding, speed limit was 60KMPH at some village on NH toll road.
It is common to target TS/AP cars at Bangalore entrance.

  • Gowtham changed the title to Hyderabad to South India, First road trip of 2021

You were lucky, I would say, because I was charged Rs 500/- per person by Nagpur Police for not wearing mask in my car.

But Police looked genuine to me, as they immediately gave me Receipt and they were doing this for everybody, irrespective of number plate.

 

I also encountered Bribe Seeking Traffic police at the outskirts of Nagpur on the way to Bhopal. But I refused to pay, as they were not Sub-inspector level Moreover I realized they are not authorized to give challan, they were trying to negotiate the challan fee with out receipt.

My learning recently was that only SI and above level in Khaki dress can give spot challans for any reason.

 

Thanks for sharing the  Journey details. I wish to take same route, in addition I want to visit Kanyakumari as well.

Sad state of affairs from govts across the country. It doesn't make any sense even if the fine is genuine.

It is just a money generation racket for the government.

Fines for speed limits are acceptable to certain extent, as long it is logical.

These kind of fines lack logic in my opinion.

Hi shekar, i have already covered trichi and tanjavur in the last trip. so excluded those for this time.

 

We booked OYO rooms which are available at best price when you book it on the same day of stay. overall stay experience was good. we had some issues with oyo receptionist at madhurai. We cannot speak Tamil and he cannot speak English. This is the only issue and rest of all are fine.

Great pictures. Cloudy weather and drive is a great combination. OYO is hit or miss. Some hotels are good and some are bad. In one of our trip we couldn't find the hotel and gave up on it. 🤣

Excellent log @Ravitejagoud. It was fun reading through. Pictures added a good flavour to the read and I have thoroughly enjoyed it. The mask incident is really crazy 😆.. Danushkodi has been on my list for a long time and I have to do it soon. The weather looked so calm and pleasant during your visit. Thanks a lot for sharing your experience. 😊

      Let's start with the planning
      It is December 2nd, everyone in my family vexed with lock down effect, So we decided to go for outing. But still Covid-19 is not completely disappeared. So we initially thought to go near by places for 2-3 days, because 8 months old daughter also with me.
      But no one interested for short trip, they are asking for at least one week trip. But at the same time we are not ready to eat out and staying in hotels. So we bought camping tents from decathlon and bought a small HP cylinder for cooking. [We minimized hotel stay and completely avoided hotel food]
       

      In my family, I am the only one who used camping tents, So I teached my family members to pitch the tents. So now we are ready with accommodation and food arrangements. We decided to start on Dec 18th, After one week My friend and his family also wants to join with us. Since they had their own cars, I don't have any problem.

      Road trip experience in a Tesla

      Sharing a road trip experience in EV with Pros and Cons when compared with ICE cars.
      This is not a leisure travel, We had to go on a work trip from SF to LA. I tried to capture as many details as possible.

       
      Car Specifications:
      Range: 600 kilometers per charge (EPA) 0-100: 3.8 Seconds Top speed is limited to 250km/hr  Supports upto Level-3 charging : 250KW/hr Auto Pilot  Will be sharing more information on Tesla Super chargers in the upcoming posts  
      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 Advantages with Tesla is super charging network 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$

      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😏

      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:

      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  

       

       

       

       

  • 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

    • 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.
