Wow, this is one heck of a road trip you have done. Thanks a lot for sharing the details well with the location pins.
How well were the places you’ve stayed sanitised during these tough situations?

More information on the road conditions of the routes you’ve taken will be more helpful.. Thank you for sharing! Cheers

We went there in September. We felt that the rooms were well sanitized. We mostly preferred to stay in dharamshalas instead of hotels. As we didn't find any good dharamshala in Rudraprayag and Agra we opted for hotel. Coming to the case of Mathura a lot of Dhramshalas are available in Vrindavan which is far away from Krishna Janmabhoomi of Mathura. So, we have opted for the hotel nearer to Shri Krishna Janmasthan. So, we have visited temple thrice during our visit to Mathura. While coming to Sagar, the hotel is few meters away from the highway. There was no need to take more diversion from highway. Instead we made it our main route.

Very nice details and very helpful. How was the road condition through out ?

The roads were smooth throughout?

Any GHAT section in this route where we need to be extra careful?

Till Meerut it was smooth. We tried very hard to escape the traffic of Delhi. So, from Yamuna expressway we take diversion to catch delhi meerut expressway. There I found road conditions were ok. But due to traffic we faced a little problem. After leaving Meerut bypass, we drove for around one hour and ghats got started. Till Rudraprayag ghats are good. Till Rishikesh we were careful in ghats. After rishikesh the ghats will go along Ganga River and roads are very narrow. So, you have to be 2X careful till Rudraprayag. After Rudraprayag Ghats became even narrower till Joshimath. Here we were 5X careful while driving. After Vishnuprayag, I found roads were more dangerous. So, in Vishnuprayag, we were very very careful and we were very slow in our pace. Also, it was dusky when we crossed Joshimath. As, the next day pindadaan was very important for our parents (fell on the same day of death anniversary of my grandparents), we tried to reach Badrinath (my husband was pretty confident while driving, but I was so frightened). But my call was, its better to stay at joshimath or Pipalkoti, if you are not in urgency to reach Badrinath.


Remaining route I didn't find any difficulty and we were having 3 drivers in our batch we didn't find any difficulty to travel long distances in one day.

    • 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

    • Road trip in Electric Vehicle, San Francisco to Los Angeles
      Sharing a road trip experience in Tesla, will be update this log on daily basis(Three days trip). 
      This is not a leisure travel, We had to go on a work trip from SF to LA.
      I will be sharing road trip experience in EV with Pros and Cons when compared with ICE cars.

      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 Will be sharing more information on Tesla Super chargers in the upcoming posts  
      A day before the trip
      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$
