HI All,

 

I am planning to start my journey on 11th Jan 2020, from Hyd to Kolkata , I have done Hyd to Vizag in 2018 and know the road condition pretty well. I am skeptical about day 2 drive from Vizag to Kolkata

 

Few Clarification

 

  1.  How's the road conditions  from Vizag till Kolkata , What time should I start from Vizag. (family of 3 )
  2.  Lot of people warned me to avoid driving in AP & OR border , OR & WB border (During early hours & late night)
  3. Would like to spend some time near Chilka lake (30 mins) any preferred restaurant etc
  4. Precautions for the car, I have an eco sport 1.5 Diesel trend , 2017 model & drove around 70K so far
  5. During return I would like to touch down Puri & konark ,what time should I start from Kolkata to reach Puri - How's the road condition.
  6. Would like to stay for 2 days in Puri & konark( Do you think its advisable , place to visit etc )
  7. Can I cover Puri to Hyderabad in one day.

 

I am super excited for this long drive.

1 Road conditions are very good vizag to kolkatha , u better check with @aritray he drove Hyd to kolkatha in a day continuously.

2) I never faced any pblm at the borders u mentioned both 2 wheeler ride and 4 wheeler drive

3) you can at orissa tourism place near chilka, u have to be careful for the diversion to chilka, easy to miss

4)I dont think so any issue comes to ur vehicle if u make it under 140kmph

5) always start from 5 am will be a better way to reach destination

6)ample time to do even u can have ur car through ferry route, instead of NH from puri.

7) I did it in VW Ameo, hope fully u can do it very easily , start early by 5am

I have done it last year, 
You will come across road works once you cross Vizag.

You can check my post

 

You can do it in two/three days depending on your comfort. 
Lack of proper restaurants on highways is downer.

Always carry extra water and snack bars.

      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
