The road upto the AP border is manageable, with scattered potholes. Not a stretch that you can drive upon carefree. Have to be vigilant since the potholes are few, but big.

Approx 25 kms stretch around Humnabad is a nightmare. The road is completely broken and you have to be very careful.

The reason I ask Hubli is it might be a forced detour.

They work nicely! Any way you just need to confirm you are on correct SH.

Should be OK I guess. I think certain section of NH218 till Bagalkot are bit rough. Goa-Karwar-Ankola-Yellapur-Hubli is an amazing road. But once you start being near Hubli traffic is a bit on the higher side.

Goa - Hubli - Raichur - Hyderabad : Is this worth a try? How is the overall road condition here?
Let me know your Hotel budget and will suggest accordingly.

You can do Goa-Hubli via Karwar (Lengthy but very good and scenic route) or Via Ramnagar and Alnavar which is short but not that great.

Waseem.

Going to stay with family, so budget is not a major issue, would prefer a decent place.

I would mostly be staying in Panji, so does this route work?

Its always good to have GPS and coupled with map my india or google maps its mostly very accurate.

We used it on for route navigation from Candolim all the way to Hyderabad, through belgaum - bagalkot - raichur.
In my updated dated 18th Aug (on this thread) I have tried to provide information on the road conditions and also some metrics on the average speed, etc.

BHPians, which is better option?

Option 1 :
Hyderabad - Zaheerabad - Humnabad - Gulburga - Jevagri - Bijapur - Bagalkot - Belgaum

Option 2:
Hyderabad - Jadcherla - Mahbubnagar - Raichur - Bagalkot - Belgaum

I drove till Zaheerbad on 8/Sep/2013 and the condition of road is pathetic. It is drivable till Sangareddy and then a deathtrap. So really worried to do the same stretch again. Would prefer option 2, provided roads are better.

Option 1:Roads are bad till Homnabad.From there on the State Highway is in good condition,if you are taking option 1,why would you go back to Bagalkot from Bijapur,instead continue straight towards Sankeshwar-Amboli-Sawantwadi-Mapusa-Panjim.Unless you have a reason to go towards Belgaum then your route is correct.

Option 2:There are no real bad sections,just some potholed sections around Raichur is what I heard,other than that no problems whatsoever.Irrespective of the route budget for around 10-11hrs of drive.

The real death trap will start from Zaheerabad till diversion to Hanumabad , Road till Zaheerabad is OK compared to this stretch. As i told before 20kms here took almost 2 hours, can make in 1 hour if you are on big SUV.

I do not have a GPS and want to check out the route on a map.

Can someone please name the towns that will fall on the way on the route between Raichur and Belgaum so that I can mark it out on a map.

Moreover, I would expect lesser traffic on this route vis-a-vis Hyd->Humnabad route.

We were earlier discussing about a variation of option 1, and the following came out as an alternate (considering a lot of ours preference to Gulbarga -> Bijapur stretch):
Hyd -> Pargi (near Vikarabad) -> Kodangal -> Sedam -> Malkhed -> Gulbarga -> Bijapur -> Bagalkot -> Belgaum -> Chorla -> Goa

Follow the quote above for details, haven't tried it yet, looks good from feedback though.

1) Crossing Raichur :
Is this the route I should take : http://goo.gl/maps/zDDmi
Is the new bye pass as visible on the left side of the image below ready as yet?

2) Crossing Lingsugur :
Is this the route I need to take :
Hyderabad - Goa : Route Queries-lingasugurbyepass.jpg

3) Crossing Bagalkot :
SH20 seems to be non existent after Bagalkot town and just before Industrial Area as per Google Map.
The route suggestion as per Google Map seems to be through back alleys.
Can you please mark out on a map the roads I need to take for bye passing or crossing Bagalkot while coming from Lingasugur and going to Belgaum.

from all the posts, I understand problems could be around Pargi, Bijapur and Gadhinglaj.

Will post a detailed log of journey. If something's not right, will return through Belgaum-Bagalkot-Raichur-Mahboobnagar route.
Rohit,did you manage to take this route via vikarabad-manneguda-pargi-bijapur-athani-chikodi?

how were the roads on this sector and how long did it take to cover hyd to kolhapur via this road?TIA
