It was a wonderful trip.
Had a great time.
Would like to thank each and every member of the team for your contribution in making this drive memorable and fun.

Coracle ride was a great experience.

People on the first Coracle - I guess that was the highest ever noise in the history of Hampi. (Cave)?

Tripathi has been a great inspiration.

Sticking on to the speed limits (80 kmph) and making steady progress.
He reached most of the regroup points with in ~5 minutes of timeline.


Compass team - 
Coordination was very helpful.(Roger, over and out)


Ameo team -

      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
