How we planned Itinerary?

We are travelling with 2 kids ( One year and 6 years ), so preferred trip to be a bit relaxed. my cousin stays in Bangalore.

Since its Dussera Holidays, Mysore will be fully crowded so we wanted to start our tour from 21st September and finish it before 28th September 2017.

Did lot of research and made the reservations based on reviews and locations as mentioned above. 

So Creta finished 45,000/- KMS service and Ready for the tour. we took some snacks and sweets from Vellanki Foods ( Kavuri Hills ).

I always preferred to travel from post lunch time to reach bangalore because there won't be any traffic when you reach around 10:00pm.

We had struggles with hectic schedule in our previous trip to Panchgani & Lonavala where kids and my self got fever. 

So we want trip to be relaxed and not hectic one. 


Day 01: September 21st 2017.

Hyderabad - ( KPHB Colony ) - Gachibowli - ORR - Kurnool - Bangalore 

Started @3:00pm and reached BTM layout Bangalore @11:30pm including Dinner Break @Blue Moon.

Overnight stay in Bangalore.






Day 02: 

8:30 am Started to Mysore. 

We would like to cover only Mysore Zoo and Chamundeswari Hills.
















Stayed in Radission Blue Plaza and had dinner in the same Mall. 

Some good food options in the Mall which is located within the hotel complex.


Day 03:

Woke up late and had break fast. Checked out and proceeded to Sultha Bathery ( Wayanad ).

Its very close to Mysore route so that we can reach the place in 2 hours.

Drove around the place and apartment located close to main road and also it has beautiful view from the room.









Day 04:

Finished Break fast and Drive to Wayanad and Kalpetta & Chembara Peak.

Breath taking views and did some trekking.





Chembara Peak...Must Visit Place in Wayanad.














Soochipara Falls...in Kalpetta.

Best falls in Wayand District.

No time for lunch break as we need to trek more than a kilometer.





You don't have to inside the water still you get wet.

Great location and beautiful.







After the water falls every one tired very badly.

Its took about one hour to come back to serviced apartment. 

We came by shortcut route through villages and explored some lakes and beautiful views. 




Day 04:

We had break fast and check out the hotel.

Went to Visit Banasura Dam which is biggest in India.




Spent lot of time @ Dam and surroundings.

You need to walk about a KM to reach and they also have Van facility if you give 10rs will drop off quickly.

Had Lunch @ Dam View Restaurant and great food. ( Ghee Rice, Pepper Chicken Roast, Fish Fry ).









Drove back to Kannur after Lunch.

Road is not good and very tough ghat area near Thalassery. 

Great weather and it was raining heavily.





Reached Kannur and Spent some time in Beach.

I came across this site while surfing the net trying to find out more about the state of road between Kannur and Bansura Dam.  I am planning a short holiday in three weeks time where I plan to drive to the Wayanad Silver Woods resort close to Banasura dam.  Can you please give me an account of the steepness, width of the road, etc, so that I can finalise my trip.

Wayanad roads are easy to drive. Wont be any issue with steepness. 
Only issue? roads are very curvy and sometimes narrow.

Hi, This road trip that you are planning to do will be a comfortable one. Roads are great but quite narrow enough that could fit in 2 to 3 cars side by side at a time. I do not think that would be a major problem either. And Silver woods resort is a decent one. You can go ahead with it. Road to Banasura dam gets a little more narrower compared to the regular highway. But it is neither steep nor dangerous.


Happy journey :)

All the places in Wayanad are pretty commercial and filled with crowd during weekends. Better to plan your visit during weekdays and monsoon is the best time while it rains. Best option is to opt for a nice resort which is isolated amidst nature and relax.

    • Hyderabad to Hamsaladeevi Beach - A hidden paradise, Andhra Pradesh
      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
