Long drive to mysore, ooty, and Coimbatore for 6 days


Recommended Posts

For the trip my car was serviced and changed al my tyres from Bridgestone to Yokohama Earth which has awsome gripping on road even on sudden breaking at speed of 130kmph.

On 16th dec 2018 we have started to ooty from Hyderabad, Chandanagar at 11.50am, we had a lunch break at 1.20pm at Hangout restaurant at kurnool food was awsome and we started from there at 2.30pm and had next break at Puttaparthi road at 4pm in evening for coffee and reached Bangalore, Devanahalli by 6pm.


Here a problem we drove from hyderabad to banglore in 6 hrs where as to cross the banglore it took 3hrs in heavy traffic. So we took [emoji545] hotel at Bangalore-Mysore road at city outskits and started at early morning at 7am towards Mysore. Visited palace and chamundeshwari temple had lunch and started towards Ooty. This ride was memorable because we saw wild life and adventurous ride of 33 hairpin turns of Ooty ghat road. We reached at hotel by 5pm and stayed for 3 days in THE BEAGON hotel, hospitality was good but food is not upto mark. So we drove to ADIYAR ANAND BHAVAN in main market had dinner its was fabulous.
Next day started to ooty lake and had boat ride for half day and remaining half day spent in Thunder World theme park and back to hotel.

 

Next day rose garden and botanical park which was very pleasant to spend time. Next day went for local shopping and visited other attractions near by. We have started to Coimbatore from ooty on 19th dec and the ghat driving was very awsome at early morning 6am as the road was covered with full of fog and road can't visible and the beautiful scenery of the hill and climate enjoyed a lot.


Finally reached to Coimbatore Isha foundation Aadi Yogi statue spent some time till 1pm and headed towards city. Had dinner at Shree Annapurna restaurant at Coimbatore-Banglore highway next to airport signal. We started at 4pm from coimbatore and reached to Banglore outskats Attibele by 6pm and the time took to cross the banglore city from one end to other is 2.45 hrs and we spent some time and had dinner at whitefields
At 10.40hrs started to Hyderabad, due to tired of driving since morning 6am halted at Anantapur near one of the HP petrol station at 12am in midnight.

Started back at 6am from Anantapur and had a tea break at kurnool at 7.40 after 10ins of break back to home reached at 10.20am at Chandanagar, Hyderabad. Total drive done was 2100 KMS.

    • 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)
