GPS Location :https://goo.gl/maps/6E5iUAuTHAm


Myself, Ravi, Ashwin and Omkar have decided to go an quick drive. 
We did some research on the locations that are near to Gachibowli and started around 4PM.
We took a short quick break at the movie towers and drove down till Shankarpally.

Road condition is average as a 4-lane drive way is under construction.

We reached Shankarpally by 5 PM by taking longer routes and explored the interiors of these villages.



The approach road was very bad and we were disappointed. Once we reached the destination, We found the place with full of slush. Also, the road was very slippery.



We started searching for other approach roads and finally managed to find one.


Remember windows XP wallpaper?  :D



We stopped and checked the route by foot and proceeded further. Chances of getting stuck are very high at this place. Take at least two cars. 



Check out my front wheel :P

After driving around, You will get poor mans slick tires.



Omkar decided to scrape the mud due to less traction. As soon as we drove 100 meters ahead, the mud was back on to the tires.



Wide tires



Omkar wanted to go under those huge electric lines and we went in there to click some pictures.



Question from Ravi
Why can't they put a single wire instead of bunch of wires?
Answer from Omkar
Difference between a 2-lane and 6-lane road. Petrol-head?



Sun kissed.





Dreams are made of Nature





We started back home by 7 PM

This place looks entirely like a new location to me. I have been there during April this year and found just dried grass. Thanks to the monsoon rains. Great share @Ranger

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


      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.
      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.
