Default Hyderabad - Goa uncharted route

I have gone through this post right from 2006 and am planning a trip next month (Feb 2010) on the following route -

Via outer ring road through Bandlaguda left before Chilkur onto Moinabad Appa Reddy Guda - Chevella Manneguda take left onto Pargi take right to Bamraspet - go straight onto Kodangal straight onto SH 16 Ganga Ravapalli - take right before Gurmatkal junction continue onto SH 16 - (try bypass for SH 51 to continue onto SH 16 bypassing Yadgir town ) SH 16 / 15 via Khanapur Hattigudur onto SH 19 through Shorapur Kumbarpet - take right before Devapur onto Talikot Road - Talikota on SH 60 take left for Muddebihal go straight on SH 60 via Tangdgi (find out if short cut to Bagalkot is available else ) take right after Krishna River from SH 60 to SH 44 via Sangam take right touch NH 13 continue on NH 13 take left onto SH 133 - via Bevur continue onto SH 133 go straight via Kaulpet / Bagalkot (alternate continue onto SH 133 take right on SH 20 take left touching SH 133 again touch Sigikeri - go straight onto SH 57 - take left on SH 20 coming up in front of Kaulpet ) go straight through Gaddanakeri - cross NH 218 continue on SH 20 to Kaladgi go straight to touch Lokapur go straight on SH 20 cross Gudgop - onto Yargatti continue onto SH 20 touch Nesargi Sulebhavi - Marihal - Pant Balekundri Sambra Basavan Kudchi - to Belgaum - take left to touch NH 4A via Shahapur Hindwadi - Angol Udyambag Majagaon - take right at Piranwadi onto SH 54 Machhe Kinaye - go straight onto SH 54 - Jamboti take right to SH 31 - Kanakumbi SH 31 touching Surla - Chorla - Anjunem Satari onto Sanquelim ( Sankali) onto NH 4A to take right turn to Ribander


This seems totally uncharted territory ( probably a much shorter route - around 650 KMs ) and since I will be going on this route for the first time, that too only with my wife, who is a pure housewife, I request for 'advance knowledge' of 'after wisdom', since it is 'not necessary to make a mistake' especially since seasoned informed BHPian opinion is available for the asking.

Kindly guide, anybody, on the road conditions please

RSVP.. refaircargo@rediffmail.com

I am planning to drive down to Goa on the 27th of this month. My last trip was in Nov 09 HYD-RAICHUR-SINDHANUR-GANGAVATI-GADAG-HUBLI. The bridge before Sindhanur was out due to which I had to take a diversion on a mud trail for around 80 KM. The going was tough till I reached Gangavati. Please suggest ny alternative to this route.

Stick to the safe and longer route in Maharastra where majority of roads would be quite decent unlike the KA route.

Hyderabad-Solapur-Kolaphur-NH4-Sawantwadi-Panjim : Total Distance : 725kms

What mobike008 wrote makes absolute sense. Stick to the safer and longer route.
And srimath when you reach or when you get back post your experience of the route you've taken.

mobike008 & deutscheafrikar

Many Thanks for your suggestions. My friends dropped out of the trip and hence I decided to fly for this time.

In the absence of any input from other members, chose to go by the Mehboobnagar, Raichur, Bagalkot, Belgaum, Chorla route. Started out on 12th morning. The renovated NH7 (been on this after almost 3 years) is really something and the directions are not fully user friendly. Missed the Mehboobnagar underpass and realized the folly only after 30 KMs at the next toll gate. Smooth sailing through the straight road through Raichur onto Bagalkot. Halted overnight at Bagalkot, since Mrs. had to visit the Jagdish temple at Gulhyattgud. Went to the temple in the morning, 25 KMs out of Bagalkot, but in the absence of advance knowledge, missed the important 'Atka Bhog' puja by just 10 minutes. Onto Belgaum without any hassles in good time. Belgaum had a severe 'Bandh' on 13th and could not find any fuel. Was told to look for a pump on the highway. Took the Piranwadi - Jamboti - Chorla route. Big mistake. Did not find any petrol pump and ran out of fuel in the middle of nowhere. Lost over 2 hours arranging for the precious frugal fuel. (normally I always carry 5 litres in spare, but somehow it skipped my mind this time). The Jamboti - Chorla route is really something. 30 KMs of rocky terrain all the way putting to shame regular SUVs, MPVs and even multi-axle trucks - all had fallen by the wayside. Took over 3 hours to navigate these 30 kms, in my 10 year old Indica DLE. After reaching Sanquelim was misguided and reached Panaji after doing about 50 KMs.

Valentine Eve and booked hotel refused to give accomodation. Managed to find something better at Ginger. Stayed on for 4 good days.

Started back on the 17th afternoon. This time took the Sawantwadi - Belgaum route without any hassles. Just missed the bypass before Sawantwadi and had to do 10 KMs extra going through the city. Halted overnight at Bagalkot. Completed the memorable 'Atka Bhog' ritual next day at Gulhyattgud. Took the same Raichur - Mehboobnagar route. Took a wrong right turn at Mudgal and went South towards Gangawati and turned back via Sindhanur - pretty bad stretch upto Sindhanur - losing another 90 KMs on the odo. Reached back Hyderabad in the night without any mishap.

All in all I thank my ancient Indica for having put up so bravely without even a single flat. I had taken extra precaution and carried 2 stepneys, none of which were used.

I think he is talking about the famous 'right turn' that people tend to miss easily

Yes, indeed, it was the right turn, just around Majgaon, before Savantwadi, that I missed...
