Default Route from Vizag to Bhadrachalam


I would like to know the best route to take from Vizag to Bhadrachalam. I know of one route via Vijayawada, NH9/NH5 and then turn off at either Ibrahimpatnam or Jaggaihpet.

are there other StateHighways that are in good condition to be able to do 80kph speeds leading from Vizag to Bhadrachalam ?

Idea is to be able to start in Vizag by 6:00am and make it by 7:00pm to Bhadrachalam.

You can also look in to this route

Vizag -> Rajahmundry -> Kovvur -> Devarapalli -> Jangareddi Gudem -> Ashwararao peta -> Badrachalam.

I travelled between Ashwararao peta and Rajahmundry on my way from Hyd to Rjy. Roads are pretty good in Jan 2007. That was the last i travelled by this road. Road between Kovvur and Devarapalli are bad. And there are big potholes between Jangareddi gudem and Ash. peta. I am not very sure about the stretch / distance between Ash.peta and Badrachalam. But i think the route i mentioned is most preferred.

Ash.peta to Rjy is around 100 - 120 KMS. Rjy to Vizag is 180 KMS. I think the total distance will be less than 400 KMS. But if you travel via vijayawada, the dist between Vizag and Vijayawada is itself 400 KMS.

Did the trip on 20th ans 21st Dec, 2012

Bhadrachalam-Mithugudem-Donkarai , approximately 120 Km excellent surface. One can easily do 100 kmph. very good 2 lane road.

Donkarai-Sileru-Gudem---- 80-90 km worst road. 4x4 territory. but scenic. for 10 km goes by the side of sileru reservoir.Dense forests with little traffic

Gudem-Chintapali---- Road is Ok type

Chintapalli-Narsipatnam 10 km is Ok, then 10 bad, next 10 Km is very good with reflectors etc, next 20km 4x4 territory.

Narsipatnam-Makavarapalem-Tallapalem junction to NH5 is OK

Entire stretch from Mothugudem-Narsipatnam is scenic. no problems at all. i was stoped at chinatapalli by police for verification of papers.

NO good food joints.

2-3 hotels at Upper sileru, where one can andhra meals
