Best route from Hyderabad to Guntur?

Recommended Posts

I'm planning to travel to Guntur from hyderabad. 

 

How about the route via Nalgonda, Miryalaguda, piduguralla?

Is any one travelled this route recently?

I always travelled on Hyderabad - Vijayawada highway. This time want to try different route and visit any places on the way if time permits.

Any suggestions?

I have done this route three months back.

 

Roads are great from Hyderabad to Piduguralla (complete 4-lane)

Once you divert from Piduguralla to Guntur,  around 50 kilometres of road is narrow single lane. 

Some times you need to go off road, to give a way to truck/bus traffic. 

Even overtaking heavy vehicles is tricky on this section. 

 

Also no proper food options between Nalgonda and Guntur. 


Crossing Vijayawada is tough specially for the people driving from Hyderabad to Guntur. 

On our recent drive via Vijayawada, we managed to drive on the closed temple route, it is partially open.

We crossed the city under 30 minutes.

With current situation & chaos at Vijayawada, this is the best route with about 60kms of narrow single lane (you will still pay 10INR as toll :P )! only other alternate is the one suggested by Gowtham by taking the bypass road to cross VJA without getting in to the diversions mess

I followed the hyd-vij high way route and reached Guntur by 11am. Took 5.30hrs. they opened the river-kanaka Durga temple route for 2 wheelers and light vehicles. So, reached early with out any delay. Thank you all for the suggestions..

That route is in function for 2 wheelers for more than 2 years :O It's high time they finish up with the fly-over and leave it open to public. Narrow roads in the VJW town is causing a lot of jam especially for the vehicles travelling across the capital.

Please report present situation on route from Hyderabad to Guntur?

 

Going VIA Vijayawada is the best option. 
Even though it is little longer, road is excellent. 
Overall drive time will be same. 

I would suggest to stick with 
Hyderabad > Suryapet > Vijayawada > Guntur

If you want to save time, take Piduguralla route, about 60kms stretch is a single lane but you will save a lot of time and money on tolls. Road condition is good

 

It is around 40 kilometres shorter according to Google maps,
Drive time difference is 10 minutes. 

Piduguralla route is good, but not ideal for high speed cruising. 
Too many things happening on the NAM expressway. It is not elevated highway, like Suryapet section.
There are too many village crossing, bikes and animals on highway. 

 

Last 60 kilometers is a mess. 

 

Only advantage?  Vijawayada traffic can be avoided. 
Now the temple route is accessible, crossing Vijayawada using Prakasam barrage is easy.

For cars too? I did not knew this!!

 

Yes, they have opened it recently.
You can drive straight to the temple. Don't take outer ring road.

 

Once you cross the temple, right turn is blocked ( towards Prakasam barrage)

Driver further ahead and take a u-turn. 
Avoid google maps in Vijayawada, it is a mess. Learnt lesson after missing the routes multiple times. Just follow the orientation.

      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)

      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
