Hello friends,

This is my first post in this group and i am very much excited to share my road trip details.

Please excuse me about my English..

 

Route:

Hyderabad to vizag via vijayawada in car. 

Vizag to araku in kirandal passenger train.

Vizag to hyderabad via viajayawada in car. 

 

Day 1:

Hyderabad to vizag in car.

 

We are total 5 friends and planned for a road trip since 3 months.

We have decided to share money (we call it advd (evadi money vadey) in telugu?).

So on day one we collected 2000 from each person.

 

Here is our humble partner in crime.car.jpg.c6b40563e1e8f3054adaf57fbc45eb2e.jpg

1. total cost: 5000 including breakfast+diesel+dinner.

2. Room cost: 1600 for 24 hours.

3. Distance covered : around 800 Km ( I am the solo driver, I love driving, I avoid passenger seat :) )

 

Day 2:

Vizag to Araku in kirandul passenger. 

 

Locals and hotel people suggested that best way to visit araku is experiencing kirandul passnger.

It goes through 25+ tunnels to reach araku. 

 

Train starts exactly at 6:50AM from vizag and reaches araku at 11AM.

Here are the some pics from train journey.

How is the road condition between Rajahmundry and Vizag?

@Ranger Road conditions are good. Some how we enjoy going on a little rough roads. We never observed the road because of beautiful paddy fields and sceneries on the way...
