Hi friends,


I am planning for a road trip from Hyderabad to Mahabaleshwar in Nov.  Can anyone please suggest which is best route for driving(I20 Active), Planning to start at 2:30Pm.

I don't mind even if distance is slightly more but looking for peaceful/smooth drive.


Basically, i read there are 2 parts. Hyderabad-Solapur and Solapur-Mahabaleshwar . Please suggest which is best in each segment. Or if any other better route is there,please feel free


1. Hyderabad- Solapur 

  • Hyderabad-Zaheerabad-Solapur (NH65, Google Recommended)
  • Hyderabad-Zheerabad-Humnabad-Omerga-Aland-Akkalkot-Solapur
  • Hyderabad-Zheerabad-Humnabad-Kalburagi-Akkalkot-Solapur
  • Hyderabad-Pargi-Kalburagi-Akkalkot-Solapur (Some members recommended)


 2. Solapur-Mahabaleshwar

  • Solapur- Mohol-Pandharpur-Phaltan-Wai-Panchagani-Mahabaleshwar
  • Solapur- Mohol-Pandharpur-Satara-Mahabaleshwar
  • Solapur-Nh65(Bhigwan)-Baramati-Lonand-Khandala-Wai-Panchagani-Mahabaleshwar
  • Solapur-Pune-Khandala-Wai-Panchagani-Mahabaleshwar

Are you planning any stop over?
Will suggest the route depending on it.

Personally, I would suggest you to start early in the morning(specially if you are driving with family)

@vikranth The link shared by @Ranger would be very apt for you drive.

And as per the road status, I would suggest you to take up Hyderabad - Kalaburagi - Solapur - Phaltan - Panchgani - Mahabaleshwar. This would be the best route for your plan.

If you start early around 4 or 5 am , You can stop by for breakfast at Kalaburagi and for Lunch at Solapur and reach Panchgani by vaguely around 6 pm.

I am thinking of staying overnight at solapur.


Would suggest you to start early in the morning and finish the trip in one go.

Option 1 

Hyderabad (Gachibowli) --> Pargi --> Kalaburagi (Gulbarga) --> Baramati (Via Akkalkot) --> Solapur --> Indrapur --> Panchgani (Via Wai) --> Mahabaleshwar

Single lane road till Solapur, but some sections are super good and some are average, no potholes. 


Option 2

Hyderabad (Gachibowli) --> Zaheerabad --> Solapur --> Indapur--> Panchgani (Via Wai) --> Mahabaleshwar

Last 100 kilometers before Solapur is pathetic, road is filled with potholes.


Option 3

Hyderabad (Gachibowli) --> Zaheerabad -->Humnabad --> Kalaburagi (Gulbarga) --> Baramati (Via Akkalkot) --> Solapur --> Indapur --> Panchgani (Via Wai) --> Mahabaleshwar

Smoothest and longest of all. 



While you are coming back, would suggest you to take following route, so that you can cover KAS, valley of flowers.

Mahabaleshwar --> KAS --> Satara --> Pandharpur --> Solapur --> Kalaburagi (Gulbarga) --> Humnabad --> Zaheerabad --> Hyderabad (Gachibowli)

Lavasa is also in my actual plan.. Is Mahabaleshwar - Lavasa road good for car drive


Mahabaleshwar to Lavasa road condition is good.
You need to go via Pune outskirts. 

Mahabaleshwar --> Wai --> Pune --> Lavasa
Don't take Mangaon route. 


Lavasa entrance will cost you around 400/-
2 hours is good enough to explore Lavasa.

Are you aware of any good budget hotel for just a night stay near solapur ?


You can check out Hotel Naman, Surya International and Hotel Vaishnavi which are best at everything they offer and can fit under the budget category hotels.

@vikranth If you are passing by the Gulbarga (Kalaburagi) route, stop by at the Lumbini Grand hotel for dinner as this is the best available option. And there are many dhabas all along the Pune Solapur highway but safest and preferable one would be Vittal Kamat hotel. And I am not sure about any place famous for the local delicacies in Mahableshwar but, Mapro and Meghna food studios is what we tried and are pretty good.

One local delicacy which I would recommend in Panchgani is 'Strawberry with cream'. A bowl of cut strawberries are served with fresh whipped cream.

Hi Frnds,


Thanks a lot for all your suggestions. I have completed the tour. 


Followed patancheru - humnabad - kalaburagi - akkalkot - solapur - pandarpur - phaltan - wai - panchagani - Mahableshwar . 


Patancheru to Humnabad is super smooth highway 110/kmph kind of,  Humnabad to Mahableshwar is 2 line without divider but roads are smooth. 80 kmph kind of. 

I have started at 3:15 pm in Hyd , stopped at akkalkot around 8:30, stayed in Hotel prestige on main highway. Very good and clean hotel . Around 1400 for non ac.

Started at around 5:30 Am next morning and reached Mahabaleshwar around 12:00Pm.  


Return, i had some work in belgaum. Mahableshwar - Belgaum route is Highway very good. Started from belgaum at around 4 pm stopped at Mahalingapur. Started again in morning  at 5:30, passed by Bijapur and reached Hyderabad at 2Pm.


Thanks again for your suggestions,

Stayed for 3N at bella vista. It was a very nice experience, very good resort.
Food, service and the way each and every bit of place used for plants etc gives us a pleasant feeling. And the highlight is service provided by staff, especially a girl named Samanaka is the best in food court.. We will get tired to say namaskar. 

We stayed in executive B orchid wing, which mostly dont have valley view. There are rooms in 3rd floor near restaurant. Those have valley view with balcony.

I stayed in Brightland as well but would definitely prefer Bella vista for its service, location(on main raod between Panchgani and Mahabaleshwar). Mahableshwar market is 5 kms from resort. Venna lake is close by.



I havent clicked any road pics. But , road from Humnabad to Kalaburagi is in good condition. No divider in between but road is smooth and wide enough. Just near Kalaburagi, slight rough patch but thats fine

      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
