Total Tolls: 3235/- [Fastag] Route expedition Via Google Maps ##This particular trip was on Hold from 2020 due to the COVID restriction 😉 Day 1: Route: Hyderabad(NH 44 and NH 40) - Sri Lakshmi Narayani Golden Temple(Vellore) Total distance covered on day 1 : 617 KMS Total Time: 11 hours 27 min with 3 breaks. Breakfast: Home made sandwich's as you wont be able to find any eat outs on NH 40. Lunch: At temple premises. It’s a holiday season so planned the trip way before and executed well with the support from my spouse and kid. Started at 2:30 Am on 23nd Dec from Hyderabad via NH44 and NH 40 from Kurnool. Its a pleasant to drive with fog on the roads and no road traffic at all. Enjoyed the drive through the scenic views. Reached Golden temple around 2:00 PM and checked into the hotel [Temple tower], booked via Goibibo.com After refreshing, had lunch and visited Golden temple. It took 3 hours for the darshan, very long walk within the temple. Very beautiful temple, maintained by private trust, its very neat and commercial as well 😉 Day 2 and 3: Golden Temple(Vellore) to Isha Center Total distance: 420+ kms (9+ hours) Stay: NKP Residency/Lodge(near to Isha center 6kms) Checked out from hotel@6AM and drive started Via NH 48, 44 and 544. Lot of constructions(Flyovers) are going on NH 44 highway at Krishnagiri, Salem areas.. with which our travelling time got increased from 7 to 9 hours. Finally reached Isha center after crossing Coimbatore traffic at 5.30PM. Here is the suspense, car was over heated and Heating core was burnt exactly at the isha entrance and needed to park the vehicle just beside the main entrance with security guards permission. Hrrrrrrrrrrr…………It was evening… fully crowded with the tourists and no help. Finally found a person inside Isha who is a vechile mechanic for Isha vechiles. With temporary fix car was ready to drive until my hotel. Had a tense evening but was peaceful after having Adiyogi darshan and the Night show(Spectacular show). Finally reached hotel at 10PM, Next days it was Sunday… and Christmas…. Nissan and other service centers were closed…decided to stay extra day at the same hotel. With some locals help, able to find a workshop which was open.. fixed the vehicle with in 30min just the temporary fix. Again visited Adiyoigi statue and had rest with good sleep overnight. Day 4: Isha Center – Madurai - Kanyakumari Total distance: 465+ kms (10+ hours) Stay: Shiva’s Residency Started towards Madurai via NH 81.. State highway 37.. NH 83 and NH 44. Beautiful mountain covered with Fog over them.. just mesmerising views until Madurai and the whole journey was very smooth without any issues. Meenakshi amman darshan took very long.. spent four hours in the queue line. 10:30AM to 2:40 PM. Meenakshi Ammatemple: Had launch on the way to Kanyakumari H 44, Very smooth road, no speed bumps nothing. Lot of lot of Wind mills at nagarcoil. very scenic. Reached Kanyakumari around 7 PM, checked into the hotel and went to the triveni sangamam place, Not allowed to beach during night. So returned back to hotel had dinner and rested for the day. Woke around 5am for the sunrise point, but due to the heavy rain.. missed it ☹ Sun was out with full swing around 8AM, went out to the triveni sangamam enjoyed the views, just water water water around You. Had a very good time around triveni sangamam, spent 3 hours enjoing the views and returned back to hotel. Missed the boating to budha’s museum due to the heavy rush. Queue line was about 1+ kms..so due to the time crunch had to leave it. Slowly moved towards Rameshwaram. Day 5 Kanyamumari to Rameshwaram Total distance: 310+ kms (9+ hours) Stay: Senthil murugan Hotel It was just 300+ kms to travel but it took us around 9 hours due to the single road after deviating from NH 44. Have to cross lot of small villages and lot of speed bumps which drastically reduced the speed and mileage of the car and increased the time to reach Rameshwaram. Only one hotel was there on the way, which rescued us from the hungry. Very minimal food options via this route. Before Rameshwaram, Pamban Bridge which is the connecting road/rail to rameshwaram. Two eyes are not enough to view such a beautiful place… wonderful thing happened here is the sunset view on the pamban bridge.. which is next level. Reached rameshwaram around 7 pm and had a very beautiful darshan of lord shiva. Spend some peaceful time at the beach.. relaxed ourself from all the stress from driving. Rameshwaram temple: Rameshwaram beach: Next day morning, around 7am started towards Danushkodi/Ram setu. Day 6: Rameshwaram – Danushkodi/Ram setu - Arunachalam Total distance: 440+ kms (9+ hours) Stay: Sarvesh Residency Started towards Danushkodi… Slowly entering onto the road… you can just see water on both of your sides.. Just water…One side of the sea is very calm and other side of the sea is with full waves. It’s once in a Lifetime experience. WOW… Danushkodi beach-Roadway: After spending 3+ hours over there, started towards Arunachalam. Roads were excellent with some road closures hear and there. Reached Arunachalam and checked into the hotel around 8pm and went to swamy darshanam after refreshing. Arunachalam: After darshananam.. roamed around the temple .. had dinner and went back to hotel. Day 7: Arunachalam - Hyderabad Total distance: 690+ kms (14+ hours) At morning 6am, started towards Hyderabad via Vellore.. NH 40 and NH 44. Very long journey but finally reached home safely. Many More to go............... 😍
