First trip of 2021 has became the best trip till now. Travelled around 3500kms. Planned to visit all the places of southern part but rain has ruined all our plans.

Heavy rains in Tamilnadu.

 

Best Moment: 

Visiting my dream place "Dhanushkodi", The Last Road Of India. Everyone must visit, but not while raining. Goosebumps moment when we reach the destination. The sound of waves at one side, eyes full of happiness at another side, this is what everyone needs. 

 

Road Conditions:

Overall the road conditions was awesome with minimum potholes.

A small suggestion: when you travel through some village, it is better to ask localities about the route than blindly believing on Google Maps. If Stuck in traffic by believing on GMaps.

 

Expenses:

Diesel: 18000/-

Food and beverages: 10000/-

Room: 15000/-

Toll Tax: 2100/- 

 

The best food we ate was Dindigul Thalappakatti biryani.

 

Funny Incident: 

Bangalore has fined us for not wearing masks inside the car.

we are not aware that we should wear mask in car while travelling with windows rolled up.

 

We were by 250rs each. The fun is police where stopping only outside state cars, they aren't stopping Karnataka registered vehicles.

 

We found few people travelling in KA registered vehicle, they are not wearing any masks. when we ask police to stop them, Cops answer Thum jhakey roko na ghadi ko". This is kind of discrimination which every traveler hates.

Reason looks pretty silly 😅

Previously, It used to be speed guns now it is face masks. Discrimination is across the country not specific to Bangalore alone.

I was caught twice in due to speeding, speed limit was 60KMPH at some village on NH toll road.
It is common to target TS/AP cars at Bangalore entrance.

  • Gowtham changed the title to Hyderabad to South India, First road trip of 2021

You were lucky, I would say, because I was charged Rs 500/- per person by Nagpur Police for not wearing mask in my car.

But Police looked genuine to me, as they immediately gave me Receipt and they were doing this for everybody, irrespective of number plate.

 

I also encountered Bribe Seeking Traffic police at the outskirts of Nagpur on the way to Bhopal. But I refused to pay, as they were not Sub-inspector level Moreover I realized they are not authorized to give challan, they were trying to negotiate the challan fee with out receipt.

My learning recently was that only SI and above level in Khaki dress can give spot challans for any reason.

 

Thanks for sharing the  Journey details. I wish to take same route, in addition I want to visit Kanyakumari as well.

Sad state of affairs from govts across the country. It doesn't make any sense even if the fine is genuine.

It is just a money generation racket for the government.

Fines for speed limits are acceptable to certain extent, as long it is logical.

These kind of fines lack logic in my opinion.

Hi shekar, i have already covered trichi and tanjavur in the last trip. so excluded those for this time.

 

We booked OYO rooms which are available at best price when you book it on the same day of stay. overall stay experience was good. we had some issues with oyo receptionist at madhurai. We cannot speak Tamil and he cannot speak English. This is the only issue and rest of all are fine.

Excellent log @Ravitejagoud. It was fun reading through. Pictures added a good flavour to the read and I have thoroughly enjoyed it. The mask incident is really crazy 😆.. Danushkodi has been on my list for a long time and I have to do it soon. The weather looked so calm and pleasant during your visit. Thanks a lot for sharing your experience. 😊
