Avoid zaheerabad route, not worth it.
Take a break at Pune.

Day :1
Hyderabad to Pune

Hyderabad to Solapur is in bad shape.

Copying the details from Hyderabad to Pune post.

Hyderabad --> Parigi --> Sedam --> Kalaburgai (Gulbarga) --> Solapur --> Pune

Hyderabd to Parigi : Average

Parigi to Sedam : above average (mix 2-lane toll road)

Sedam to Kalaburgai : Excellent (2-lane road)

Kalaburgai to Akkalkot : average (few bad stretches near to Akkalkot)

Akkalkot to Solapur : average ( some bad stretches)

Few tips:

  • Carry enough cash
  • Breakfast stop at Gulbarga (Lumbinis grand hotel, neat washrooms)
  • Lunch stop at Solapur. (You can find plenty of dhabas from Solapur to Pune)




Day:2
Pune to Ahmedabad
Road condition is top notch, it is completely 4-lane.

Can be easily done under 8 hours in a fast car.

specific reasons for carrying cash ?

 

Most of the hotels and fuel stations between Hyderabad --> kalaburgai --> Solapur section does not have card facility.

We had a tough time during our last drive.
It is always better to carry enough cash when you are driving on State highways.

If you start at 3 PM, you won't hit a 4-lane till 9 PM.

It is single lane from Hyderabad to Solapur.

Would suggest you to start little early.

Avoid zaheerabad route, you will come across heavy truck and bus traffic, diversions are unlimited due to road construction.

Any suggestions about Aurangabad route via Nizamabad


Avoid that route, it is a nightmare!
Single lane filled with potholes.

Best route:
Hyderabad --> Pune --> Mumbai --> Ahemadabad

The best route to drive from Hyderabad to Ahmedabad is 

Hyderabad-Nizamabad-Nanded-Aurangabad- Kannad-Dhule-Surat-Ahmedabad - This road is good and you save good enough on tolls.

Agree that we may save money on tolls.
Toll roads are stress free to drive.

Compared to single lane roads, toll roads are little predictable.
If I am going on a 1200 kilometer road trip, I would always prefer toll road, unless the single road is scenic.

Yeah agree with you, even I prefer toll roads.


But on the way to Ahmedabad I enjoyed this route.

Anyways we have tolls almost till Nanded ( except the stretch between Nizamabad to Narsi) Nanded to idAurangabad road is in good condition, Aurangabad to Surat road is in super good condition, with very less traffic and soon after you cross Aurangabad the road is scenic and you can even cover Grushneshwar jyothirling darshan which is just on the way.

 

From Surat anyways it's toll again. As I take this route regularly till Parbhani so I am
more Inclined towards this road [emoji16]. I didn't pay toll in MH at all, only toll in TS and Gujrat.

 

While my return journey I took Ahmedabad-Thane-Pune-Solapur-Hyd and got stuck at outskirts of Thane for couple of hours due to some traffic issues and some bridge work, wasted good amount of time in Thane and pune traffic to cross the cities, I was frustrated while driving on solapur- hyd stretch. Thought much on 230rs toll from Thane to Pune express way - did it justified, I don't think so.. the stretch was hardly 70 to 80kms.


We have experienced Hyderabad ORR, so any roads in comparison cannot be justified, not even the vadodara- Ahmedabad express was or Thane -Pune express way[emoji16]

This is worst stretch to drive, Last week I drove from Hyderabad to Zaheerabad. 
Which is better compared to Zaheerabad to Solapur, I got so tired due to numerous switch backs and speed bumps. 

Can't imagine about Zaheerabad to Solapur stretch. :rolleyes:

100% to the point.
Hyderabad ORR can be considered as best road to drive in India, considering infrastructure. 

 

Pune and Mumbai traffic is the biggest road block.

Hi Tanveer,

The best route to reach Ahmedabad from Hyderabad is Via Pune and I would suggest you to halt at Pune for the night.

Day - 1

Hyderabad - Parigi - Sedam - Kalaburagi - Solapur - Pune

Hyderabad to Sedam, road is Avg. (2 lane)

Sedam to Solapur, road is Good. (2 lane)

Solapur - Pune, Excellent 4 lane highway. 

 

Day - 2

Pune - Navi Mumbai - Surat - Vadodara - Ahmedabad

Roads are good throughout the stretch. Watch out for tress passers and bikers in the villages you come across in between.

 

Both the days takes you about 13 hours approximately (including breakfast and lunch breaks) to reach your destination for about 650 kms  approximately.

 

Have a safe journey and please do update us back regarding the current road conditions after you are back.

I suggest you to halt at Pune instead as any other alternative would definitely be doable but just to make sure that you wouldn't get tired for the next day's drive. I would still suggest you to go with the above mentioned plan :)

    • Hyderabad to Gandikota, Grand canyon of India
      Sharing a post by Radhika Kundur:   History of Gandikota from Wiki Gandikota is a village and historical fort on the right bank of the Penna river, 15 km from Jammalamadugu in Kadapa district, Andhra Pradesh, India.   The fort was the center of power for various dynasties, such as the Kalyani Chalukyas, Pemmasani Kamma Nayakas, and the Golconda Sultanate. Gandikota was the capital of Pemmasani Kamma Nayakas for more than 300 years. Pemmasani Ramalinga Nayaka constructed the huge fort at Gandikota with 101 towers replacing the previous sand fort constructed by Kaka Raja, Vassals of Kalyani Chalukya rulers.    Best route from Hyderabad to Gandikota Hyderabad ->Kurnool ->Nadyal -> Gandikota If you take above route you can cover following places as well: Belum Caves Ahobilam  
      Below place is yet to open for public, please check before visiting has great adventure activities:
        https://www.facebook.com/Adventuresportsacademygandikota/

        A MUCH needed break from the monotony. With the wildest bunch of friends 3 days 2 nights.   Stayed at this amazingly comfortable tourism place which is not open yet. A place which will surprise you soon.( we could go because it was friend’s/family )   On offer are Rappelling , quads on a quad trail inside the property , kayaks , guided treks through the paths unknown (they open up to breath taking views ) , guided tour to the fort and its little secrets.also coming soon is a ropeway cable car scene.   One of the partners is the only Indian who has scaled Mt Everest solo. His team is just simply amazing. They were very encouraging, experienced and kind.   6.3hrs /382 km with 1 hr lunch break and 2 tea breaks. 11 of us ages ranging from 7 to 82.   Team Skoda with a Creta cretin thrown into the melee (we like our Skodas )   Lunch going to Gandikota was at Hill park at Jadcherla (we could not make it to Pyramid near Kurnool on time ) and while coming The Pyramid food park at Kothakota.   During our stay the accommodation provided us with hot piping meals on time - ragi Sangati , uggani and the likes. Simple yet hearty.   We thankfully got home before Nandyal and the area got flooded yesterday. (But we absolutely would not have minded being stranded where we stayed )

    • Hyderabad to Ranganayaka Sagar reservoir - A short weekend getaway
      We were literally frustrated due to lockdown and were looking for a short drive in the month of June. Then we got information about safe location - Ranganaya Sagar reservoir. I checked with my Baleno group BOCH ( Baleno Owners Club Hyderabad) and found one more couple for ride. We started from Hyderabad at 7 am and reached there by 10 am. Being 100 km away from Hyderabad you will find less crowd on weekends. But if you really want to enjoy plan travel on weekdays.
       
      Road condition from Hyderabad to Ranganaya Sagar:
      Roads are excellent till reservoir. Distance is around 115 km.
       
      Time spent at Ranganaya Sagar:
      It is good location for relaxation and photography. We spend around 4 hours there, had our lunch and return back by 7PM in evening.
       
      Best time to visit Ranganaya Sagar:
      Note: Best time to explore is early morning or late evening to witnesses sunrise and sunset.
       
      Food availability at Ranganaya Sagar:
      Carry own food and water, you will find nothing around it.
       
      Some of the important facts about Ranganaya sagar reservoir:
      It is part of multi-stage lift Irrigation of Kaleshwaram Plan is to make Godavari river live through out the year over a streach of 274 kilometers to make farming efficient. Provides irrigation

    • Road trips in Electric Car experience
      Sharing electric car driving experience from the past five months. 
       
       
      Vehicle: 
      Tesla model X, Long range
      Real world range :
      500 Kilometers 

      Useable range:
      400 Kilometers (We usually charge before last 100 kilometers distance to empty)

       
      Battery capacity:
      100 KWH
       
      Charge stations:
      Different types of charging stations:
      Tesla super chargers Home chargers Destination chargers Office commute chargers  Government chargers   
      1. Tesla super chargers:
      10% to 90% charge is usually completed under 40 minutes.
      Tesla recently introduced V3 charging stations with 200 KWH capacity.
       
      Charging is free for cars like Model S and X
      Cars like Model 3 an Y has nominal fee.
       
      Inside city limits, some stations are available near malls, so plug-in and by the time you done your grocery shopping.
      Car is ready with 90% charge.
       
      Highways, Super chargers are very helpful on highways. 
      They are located near restaurants/malls/food outlets/supermarkets.
      99% times one wont realise that it is a charging break. 
      By the time we fresh-up, eat food and take loo break car is ready. 
       
      2. Home Chargers:
      Usually they take around 9 hours to charge, key word "Over nigh charging"
       
      Full charge @ Home costs around 700/- (roughly comes around 1.5~2 rupee per kilometer)
       
      Most of the old infra(housing) apartments sill lack charging facilities, some users completely depend on SuperChargers around their home.
      No such issues for people living in independent housing facilities. 
       
      3. Destination Chargers:
      Destination chargers are redefining road trips in Tesla, few hotels started implementing over nigh charging stations. 
      They are very helpful and reduce the overall charging time and range anxiety.
       
      4. Office commute chargers :
      These are located at office premises, they usually have ~ 2 hours limit. They are free of cost.
      They are slow but they add around 80 kilometers range, these are built to cover your office commute.
      5. Government chargers:
      Government chargers are rapidly increasing in states like California. There is huge investment pumping into the charging infra.
      These are generic, can be used by any car. 
       

      Range/Mileage:
      Traditional cars perform better on highways compared to city limits.
      EVs don't loose much range inside limits, in-fact they are more efficient inside city limits.
      Ev's loose range rapidly when driven at high speeds, above 120 kmph.
      Under 120 kmph be it city limits or highways, range stays flat.
       
       
      Performance 
      There is on competition here, electric cars wins hands down.
      Cars like model X and S can shame some likes of Ferrari/Lambo etc
      They are super quick 0-100
      They win most of the signal drags
      They are unreliable quick
       
      0-100(S) : 2.5 seconds
       
      Long drive planner:
      Tesla inbuilt road trip planner is fantastic.
      900 kilometers trip plan : 15 minutes(Planned for road trip)+ 45 minutes (Lunch break) + 35 minutes (Tea break/Shopping)

      Got info about Kondapochamma reservoir and decided to explore it.
       
      Initial plan was to catch sunrise. But home's chief minister and leader of opposition (my son, they rules the house) objected this.
      So started around 8 in the morning from Miyapur.
       
      Kondapochamma entry:
      It has two entries, main entry and secondary entry.
      Some times main entry is closed, no need to disappoint. There is one more entry from the back side.
      Drive a little further ahead you can find another entry, but the road is patchy.

      If you plan on weekend, start early in the morning from Hyderabad.
