Hi Ullas, At present the best route to reach Vizag from Hyderabad is Hyderabad - Suryapet - Vijayawada - Rajamundry - Vizag.

I suggest you to cover a place named Araku since you have enough days in hand and not much to see around Vizag.

Places to cover in Vizag are:

Ramakrishna Beach, Kailasagiri Hill Park, Submarine Museum, Yarada Beach (A must visit beach in Vizag), Dolphin's Nose, Visakhapatnam Zoo, Bhimli Beach.

Araku is a small hill station close to Vizag which is approximately around 100 kms from Vizag and takes 3 hours of drive time.

Haritha valley resort is one decent and recommended place for a stay between the hills.

Vijayawada to vizag : 4-lane : Road is not good last year.

Even thought it is 4-lane, they collect toll, still road condition is bad.

There is a proposal to expand the 4-lane to 6-lane, which was not implemented.

I have seen people sitting on the dividers and having an evening chit-chat. :fight:

Too many villages,shops and crossings. People are all over the place.

Always drive with caution, as you approach junctions, go easy on the throttle and prepare yourself for braking.

Hi guys, I have recently done a road trip to Vizag and tried 2 routes.. would like to share the status update with you

Route 1 - Hyderabad - Suryapet - Khamam - Devarapalli - dommeru - godavari 4th bridge - Vizag

Route 2 - Hyderabad - Vijayawada - Gundugolanu jn take left - dommeru - godavari 4th bridge - Vizag

Route 1 points - 26 KM less compare to route 2, Two way from Suyapet to Dommeru, Less Traffic compare to Vijayawada highway, Around 40 KM roads are full of potholes that can damage your cars,

So you need to slow down and drive carefully. Except that 40 KM roads are good and you can maintain a safe speed up tp 80 to 90. You can save around 300 RS toll charage.

Route 2 points - Streeless drive compared to route 1. Complete smooth 4 ways except 50 km from Gundugolanu jn to dommeru. This 50 KM two way road also in excellent condition and this is shortcut to avoid NH 5 distance. You need to take Vijawada by pass after Gollapudi junction NH 9 to avoid Vijayawada traffic till Ramavarappadu junction Eluru road..

Although it's very late but still if you want to explore

I went three times to Vizag by car.


1st time

Hyderabad... Suryapet..Vijayawada.. Tanuku.. Rajahmundry .. Vizag .


It's longest in distance and boring with average 90-100 speed and 4 rest stops it takes healthy 12 hours.


2nd time

Hyderabad.. Vijayawada.. Gundugolanu..Gnkroad.. Godavari 4th bridge... Diwancheruvu.. Vizag.

Short by around 50 km, 86 km single but good road challenging drive, saved Rajahmundry traffic and two tolls, same time 12 hours


Third time


Hyderabad..Suryapet..khammam..Aswaraopet..koyyalgudem..kanniyagudem..Devarpalli..Godavari 4th bridge.. Vizag.


This is the best trip among three.

Suryapet to koyyalgudem road is really good from koyyalgudem take right and take the route to Devarpalli via kanniyagudem (don't go via gopalpuram)


No Vijayawada traffic,  No rajahmundry traffic . No Nandigama traffic!


khammam to Jangareddigudem the road is unbelievably scenic.
Reached Vizag in 10 and half hours.

only limitation is night travelling in this route is not advisable at all specially with family.

Good hotels in the way specially in Sethupally and Aswaraopet.

Petrol pumps are there in each 40-50 km.

But I request all friends to explore this route at least once, single village roads are fun to drive.

Very helpful information. Thank you for sharing. 

Personally, I would always prefer the longest route, If the drive times are almost similar. 
Always wanted to explore the internal routes from Rajahmundry to Aruku.
This monsoon, I will try to cover. :)

Travelled to vizag from hyderabad on 1 Dec. We started at around 4:52 AM in the morning. Was at outer ring road by 5. Reached 7 food court near suryapet by 7:04 AM stopped for around 40 mins.

Reached vijaywada outer by 9:10 AM. Did not take the by bypass road, instead continued on NH65. It took almost 40-45 mins to cross the city and reach outer. There was no traffic jam in city.

Road is pretty good, 6 lane highway.

Reached godavari bridge around 11:30 AM. Toll at Godavari bridge 4 is also through fast tag now. No cash payment done for tolls on the way, all through fast tag. The road is little bad from Godavari toll bridge for 10-15 kms.

Stopped to fill tank and eat lunch for 50 minutes around 12:00 PM at indian oil swagat retail outlet after crossing Diwancheruvu. There is friends dhaba in petrol pump. Spicy food but have different options to fill yourself up.

There were 2-3 over bridge constructions on the way, rest all road was good.

Reached vizag by 3:30 PM, google maps showed to take exit for vizag city, but continued on NH16. Two extra tolls were there and it took further 45 mins to reach hotel. Lot of traffic on NH65 in vizag.

Total tolls - 1053
Total kms -  691
Return tolls - 1068

Return approx 690 kms
Started around 6:05 AM from vizag hotel, reached hyderabad by 5 PM, including 1 hr 45 mins for breaks.

      Hyderabad to Hamsaladeevi Beach - A hidden Paradise
      After a long wait for the December trip, we kick started our vacation to the most beautiful Hamsaladeevi beach located in the Krishna district, Andhra Pradesh.
      Usually many of them skip this place due to lack of accommodation, but you will find a decent stay in Vijayawada which is around 80 kms approximately from Hamsaladeevi. It is definitely worth travelling so far to see the beauty of this Sagara Sangamam, where river Krishna meets the Bay of Bengal.
      We started at an early hour from Hyderabad and reached Vijayawada by 10 AM and checked into the OYO hotel. There are no food joints available at Hamsaladeevi beach so we packed the lunch from the hotel and headed out. Vijayawada to Hamsaladeevi drive took us 3 hours with some breaks.
      Hamsaladeevi village is 24 kms away from Avanigadda and we reached Hamsaladeevi by 3 PM. After a long drive from Hyderabad, there was an adrenaline rush gushing out to see this most beautiful place and couldn't wait to snap the sandy beach and the 'river-beach' meeting point. This point is 2 km away from the beach (From Hamsaladeevi village, beach is 4 kms) and we drove our car on the beach side shore to the port to see the confluence.

      Distance : 376 km
      Ride: Honda City
      Fuel : Petrol
      Mileage : 15 kmpl
      Hotel : OYO rooms (2000/- per night)
      Best Route 2016
      Hyderabad --> Suryapet --> Vijayawada -->Pedapulipaka --> Madduru --> Thotlavalluru --> Nimmagadda --> Avanigadda --> Nagayalanka --> Chodavaram --> Hamsaladeevi Beach
      Note: Don't take any diversions from the mentioned route else you might end up between bad conditioned roads and longer distances as you pass
