August 15th long weekend drive from Hyderabad

Recommended Posts

 

I would like to drive during Aug 15th week with family and kids.

I can drive around 2000km to and fro.

Trip is around 5 to 6 days.

 

Few in my mind like

- Hyderabad - Araku - Srikakulam - Kakinada - Yanam - dindi - Nagayalanka Hyderabad

Via Bhadrachalam, Maredumilli, Lambasingi, paduru, Araku, vizag, Bheemili, konaseema, Narsapur

 

Hyderabad - Mahabaleshwar - Mumbai - Pune - Hyderabad

 

Hyderabad - Srisailam - Bairluty - Ongole - Sriharikota - Tirupati - Horsely hills - Gandikota - Hyderabad

 

Hyderabad - Bengaluru -Mysuru - Ooty - Kodaikanal - Madurai - Trichy - Tanjavur - Pondicherry - Tiruvannamalai - Kanchi - Vellor - Tirupati - Horsely hills - Hyderabad

 

Appreciate if you can suggest any more best places to drive.

This is a good option but six days is too long for this drive.

Mahabaleshwar will be fantastic during monsoon.

Only major problem is with the view points, most of them are completely filled with clouds.

Hyderabad - Bengaluru -Mysuru - Ooty - Kodaikanal - Madurai - Trichy - Tanjavur - Pondicherry - Tiruvannamalai - Kanchi - Vellor - Tirupati - Horsely hills - Hyderabad

 

Avoid these places, usually they are over crowded during long weekends.

I would definitely recommend this including Panchgani and a lot more in and around the Mahabaleshwar. This would be perfect to explore. Which car would you be driving btw, ?

 

Do check out the link below for a detailed log. I don't think it would be filled with fog as such coz it happens very untimely and pretty unpredictable but, it's going to be a monsoon fun drive.

Creta petrol Star dust.

I drove this car with family to Coorg, Udupi, Gokarna last year...each time covered 2000km

 

 

It would be really fun if there is any drive meet-up to western ghats in next 2 months...

Creta can easily do this.. no need to worry about the roads.

Hi @sahil, I am planning my drive to Ladhak during this holiday. I have already got my leaves confirmed and my plan is on. Any tips you guys would suggest, all are welcome :) 

 

And amongst the options that you proposed, I would suggest the Mahabaleshwar and Panchgani drive for you during this season as it best to my knowledge.

How about waynad and Munnar - Neelakurinji?

https://www.keralatourism.org/destination/neelakurinji-munnar/366

 

Munnar and Wayanad are good options too. When you are travelling to Kerala, your stay at some exotic resort in the forest matters the most.. :) And Neelakurinji needs a trek to reach the valley of flowers. Plan accordingly

Got one more route suggestion from a friend
Hyderabad - Mahabaleshwar - via Konkan route(Mumbai - Goa) reach Goa - Dandeli - Bijapur - Hyderabad
Close to 2000KM

Visit beaches and some places on Konkan route.

 

Actually 5 to 6 days as per your plan will be too tight to plan too many places in Kerala or Konkan. You will end up driving throughout the day rather than relaxing at any one place. My suggestion is to stick to 2 or 3 places if you are ending up with Kerala.

Agree. For Konkan , 8 nights including driving on day time would be ideal.
Mahabakeswar - 2 nights
Konkan - 1 night
Goa - 3 nights
Dandeli - 2 nights.

Kerala has many places to visit. Need to plan..

With kids trek is impossible if it's more than 4, 5 kms.

 

Yes, It is not possible for even 2 kms when it's mountains :) 

 

Check out the link below which your friend had mentioned about. We followed this plan and it was still too tight for us for 8 days.

Munnar is an excellent option.
It is perfect getaway during monsoon. 

Less crowd compared to December time.

 

It will take around two days from Hyderabad to Munnar.

But the place is worth a visit.

Lot of view points and sight seeing places.

 

Wayanad is more like book a resort and chill.

Place is famous for resorts.

Places are strictly average, during monsoon and winter it is somewhat better.

But Munnar still has unique charm.

 

Agree on it.

Munnar has good number of unknown trails.

But it is getting over crowded during long weekends.

Hi @sahil since you are sticking to the western ghats, I would recommend to stay around the places between Lonavla and mumbai... You need to check out ganapathipule. Goa is a little off season and you will miss the vibes of what goa is known for :)

@ranger I have postponed my trip to Sep/Oct..due to 2 reasons..
- got only 5 days including travel dates. Hence thought it's too hectic to cover the places
- my friend from Pune suggested me to travel in the months of September/Oct. At present many view points/places in mahabaleswar is not accessible or closed due to continuous rains. Valley of flowers is not that great now, and it is super good during September/Oct months..

Hey @sahil, It is altogether a different beauty in rains if you like to enjoy the monsoons. September is another option post rainy season to see the place all in green..  It's beautiful even during that time. and Kaas Plateau valley of flowers isn't so great as I had expected during my trip.. may be too much of crowd at this place has spoiled the scene to our eyes :@

Our last year's monsoon drive was through the Andharban forests in the western ghats.. We just din't trek into the interiors but chose the tikona fort as our trek option :) 

We are waiting for you to share your Matheran experience :D

    • 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
