I did the Bijapur - Jevargi- Gulbarga and further Gulbarga - sedam - kodangal - mahabubnagar route recently and would not recommend night driving. If at all it is a must, ensure that you have powerful headlights.

But then, I am not aware of the road conditions in the other route discussed.

Planning on doing this route this Friday. Will be leaving at around 3AM from Pune. Hopefully should hit Solapur by 6 AM. So which section is the most horrible after this?
I am thinking that since only 300 kms are left i should be able to do it in 6-7 hours in my TATA SAFARI. Am I being too optimistic?

Yes 5-6hrs should be good enough for you to cover Solapur-Hyderabad outskirts.The bad sections are uniformly scattered the worst being around Naldurg and Homnabad.

PS:Be prepared for the searing 40degree plus heat enroute

Hi -
I plan to travel from Gachibowli (HYD) on Thursday early by 4am towards Andheri (MUM) & after going through the travelogue details of you all, I find this one suitable & less detouring.

Gachibowli - Sadashivpet (via ORR)
Sadashivpet - Zaheerabad
Zaheerabad - Bidar
Bidar (new bus stand road) - Humnabad
Humnabad - Solapur
Solapur - Pune
& thereafter ???

Since I'm leaving very early, I believe my 2006 model Optra should be in OK condition to bear this track. (I'm getting my car serviced & replaced with synthetic oil tomorrow with all other checks) Suggestions?

With this route, I believe I should be home (Mum) from home (Hyd) in 14hrs (including 1-2 breaks of 15-20 min)

I had taken Solapur-Akkalkot-Gulbarga route. 21 Kms from Akkalkot is horrible, except that its good roads. Especially the roads in Karnatka portion are too good.

I started at 6AM from Pune and was in Gachibowli by 4PM. 6-7 hours is sufficient for the 300km stretch. You should be in Hyderabad for lunch.

Opel Corsa is fine enough, only that you will have to drive slow in bad patches. Pune onwards its Mum-Pune expressway, I guess that was obvious.

Any suggestions on my route plan?

Since I'm getting my car serviced today, what more checks needs to be done before hitting the roads tomorrow?

I'm driving solo. Anyone interested to join me?

Yesterday I travelled from khopoli to hyderabad. My route was

Khopoli-pune-solapur-umerga-aland-gulbarga by pass via orr-farooqnagar-nh7 to mehdipatnam.

Total distance was 700kms against 630kms which is if I travel via nh9 all the way. This way I was able to avoid the stretch between umerga and hyderabad via nh9

To summarize, taking the 70 km detour via Aland from Umerga adds around 1.5 to 2 hours to the normal time from Hyderaad to Solapur, when the road was good.

But I've read on this forum that the road between Zaheerabad to Umerga is not that bad nowadays. If this is correct, then is it still adivisable to take the detour?

Can you share updates on the road condition based on your trip?

Can you please confirm about the road condition because as far as I know absolutely no repair work has been carried out on this stretch an it has atleast 100kms of pot holed and crater filled road on which I have to drive my vento in 2nd or 3rd gear.

I've not traveled on that stretch for years. I was referring to ranjitp1's post of May that says it should take around 6 hours to reach Solapur from Hyderabad.
