Gents, I am planning a trip from Bangalore to Nanded sometime in early May. I know that NH7 from Bangalore to Hyderabad is pretty good drive. How about Hyderabad to Nanded? Is the one via Nizamabad still the best to take?

Since its a Gurudwara pilgrimage trip, Bidar is also on the agenda. Hows that route specifically.

Also hows the route beyond Hyderabad for night driving?

Thanks in advance for your inputs

Yes I think the best is Nizamabad followed by SH22. (Bhainsa-Nanded)

No idea about Nanded-Bidar road. But note it would be hot. And as regards to route near Hyd close to Bidar, Humnabad-Zaheerabad-Hyd on NH9 is in a very bad shape.

Here are the route options i had considered when travelling from Nanded to Bangalore:

Of these, I finally took the Bhainsa route but was disappointed with the road quality in some places. You can read my update about the route, including a couple of video clips of the roads:

http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/route-...ml#post3003886 (The mega "Road Updates" thread)

I doubt if the road quality has improved in Bhainsa. You could try the Bodhan route as a few others have also travelled through that route.

Hope this helps.

Going to be superhot.Hyd is already in the 40s.

Hyd-Nanded is via Dichipally-Nizamabad-Bodhan-Nanded.Roads are good to average,and traditional 2laned one.

Since its a Gurudwara pilgrimage trip, Bidar is also on the agenda. Hows that route specifically.

No safety issues,however once you leave the NH7 at Dichippally it is going to be quite isolated.I would suggest stay the night at Hyd and leave for Nanded after breakfast.
I dont have any inputs to offer on the Nanded-Bidar route but the reccomended route should be the one via Udgir and Bhalki to Bidar.

Hyderabad to Bidar via Zaheerabad is a good stretch except that from AP-Karnataka border upto Shahpur gate road is bit narrow. I stayed in Bidar for 6 years and always remember KSRTC bus taking the Aurad, Degaloor route to Nanded, had travelled few times via Bhalki, Udgir also to Nanded but roads were not that great in Karnataka. Bidar has decent options to stay overnight and for food also on Udgir Road so you can halt in Bidar without any issues

Hyderabad-Dichpally-Nirmal-Nanded may be better than Hyderabad-Dichpally-Nizamabad-Bodhan-Nanded as per my understanding based on various posts over different threads on different forums.

Just came back from Banagalore-Hyderabad-Nanded roundtrip so thought it was a moral obligation to provide an update on the road condition (I have been receiving so much valuable information for all my trips from TBHP, so it is payback time now)

Since this thread is focused on the Hyderabad Nanded stretch, I will limit the discussion to only that.

The route we took was:

Hyderabad to Nizamabad
Road - NH7
Format - 160 kms of 4 laned till Dichpally exit and 17 kms of two laned undivided road from Dichpally to Nizamabad
Condition - Excellent
Speed - Can consistently be maintained at 120+ except for Dichpally to Nizamabad where you can move at around 60-80 km/hr due to local town traffic.
Traffic - Sparse, mostly trucks and cars with very few two-wheelers except for Dichpally to Nizamabad where it is mostly two-wheelers and few cars

Nizamabad to Manjira River bridge (a few kms after Bodhan)
Road - SH25
Format - 36 kms of two laned undivided road from Nizamabad to Bodhan
Condition - Average
Speed - Around 90 kmph
Traffic - Sparse, two-wheelers and few sightings of cattle and farm vehicles

Manjira River bridge (this is also the Telangana-Maharashtra border) to Nanded
Road - SH225 till Narsi. Not sure about the SH number from Narsi to Nanded
Format - Roughly 80 kms of 4 laned tarmac
Condition - Excellent all the way till Nanded (I was told by a local dhaba wala that this new stretch was opened for traffic only 2-3 months ago)
Speed - Can be consistently maintained at 120+ km/hr
Traffic - Few cars and even fewer two-wheelers till Nanded

This is the route I had taken:

Update on the Hyderabad to Nanded route via Bidar
I recently visited Nanded and since I wanted to visit Nanak Jhira Gurudwara at Bidar we went via Bidar
Route Taken:
Hyderabad-->Zaheerabad-->Bidar-->Nanded
Nanded-->Bodhan-->Nizamabad-->Hyderabad (Airport) : 340 Kms (excellent route , bodhan bypass is broken but it is just 3 kms and is manageable and nothing to worry abt) we did it in 5 hr 30 mins without crossing 100 km/hr

Hyderabad to Bidar approx 150 kms. Took abt 3 hrs at moderate speeds
Bidar to Nanded again approx 150 kms till degloor there are a couple of very bad patches though you can negotiate the craters without scraping under body. In all approx 25 kms is in very bad shape but is doable. We were in a dezire and had no problems.

Going through Bodhan town is strongly advisable and the same has been mentioned many a times on various threads on this forum.

Hey Folks, I am planning a Bangalore to Nanded trip and trying to figure whats the best way to get to Nanded. My intent is that while going i want to directly go and on the way back come via Bider. Google map shows primary recommendation via Nizampet-Degloor, where as on the forum all of you have used via Nizamabad which would be a longer route coming from Bangalore. Recommendations please ?

Take a call first, do you trust and want to rely on google maps or on members of the forum.

Google Maps might show you the shortest route and a certain travel time associated with it but does it account for mud-roads, village roads, only tractor suitable roads, gradients, pot holes and many such attributes.

Bangalore - Hyderabad - bye pass using ORR clockwise and exit on Nagpur Highway - Hyderabad - Dichpally - turn left - Nizamabad - Bodhan (go through the town, do not use bye pass) - Bodhan - Lohogaon - turn right - Lohogaon - Nanded.

Nanded - Lohogaon - go straight - Lohogaon - Degloor - Aurad - Bidar. No idea of road conditions between Lohogaon and Bidar but you can enquire from the taxi guys and bus drivers at Lohogaon while going to Nanded on suitability but frankly, no alternative unless you drop Bidar from the itinerary.

Bidar - Zaheerabad - turn left - Zaheerabad - Hyderabad - bye pass using ORR anti clockwise and exit at Shamshabad - Hyderabad - Bangalore. Road condition between Zaheerbad and ORR are not exactly good.

No offence intended man. The point of the query is to clarify given that I dont see any feedback on the route that google is recommending. Google is also not just a dumb routing s/w, it does account for road conditions and drive times through statistics. But nothing like 1st hand experience hence the question on the forum. Thanks for your inputs.

Default Re: Hyderabad - Nanded : Route Queries

Folks, I just got done with my BLR-HYD-BIDAR-Nanded-HYD-BLR trip over the long weekend. Did Hyd-Bidar on 13th Aug, Bidar-Nanded on 14th Aug, Nanded-Hyde on 16th Aug. Details below.

Hyd-Bidar route taken was Hyd-Zaheerabad-Bidar. Road from Hyd to Zaheerabad is just horrible mainly due to 4 laning that is on going. Traffic is huge esp trucks and pot holed road with continuous deviations. Zaheerabad to Bidar its a small state road which is much nicer as its well paved with limited traffic.

Bidar to Nanded route taken was Bidar - Degloor - Lohogaon - Nanded. The first 60km stretch till Degloor is extremely bad with no roads at most parts. Its a tough drive and good test of the car. Took us more than 2hrs to cover the distance. Degloor to Nand on highway 161 is very nice and smooth. INitially it was 2 lane and then became 4 lane. Watch out for lot of big dual speed breakers at every small village though which require to be slowed down to 1st gear speeds. Last 100kms from degloor took lesss than 1.5hr

Nanded to Hyd route taken was Nanded-Lohogaon-Bodhan-Nizamabad-Hyd. Road till Nizamabad is generally decent with few bad patches. But speeds at not very high. Nizamabad onwards its amazing NH. We reached hyde in about 5hrs.

I feel that Nanded-Hyde can also be done via degloor since road conditions are good and would be similar time as via Nizamabad, not sure about road conditions between Degloor to Sangareddy but my estimate is that it should be decent.
