Hi Atul,

 

I drove last week from Pratapgarh (UP) to Hyderabad. I started at 4:00 AM and reached Gachibowli at 11:55 PM.

My route was as follows:

Pratapgarh - Prayagraj - Reewa - Jabalpur - Nagpur - Hyderabad.

 

This complete stretch is 4 lane except for approx 30 - 35 km at 2 places viz.  Reewa and Katni Bypass.

The roads are in very good condition and I was maintaining 80-90 kmph.

 

I would suggest you to stay at Nagpur.

      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.

       
      December 18th, 2020

    • 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
