I'm here to report back from the Hyderabad - Jaipur trip concluded late last night (Saturday) with our arrival in Jaipur. The route is common till Agra (with the Hyd-Del route) and hence posting it here instead of the other thread. Route was Hyderabad-Adilabad-Nagpur (butibori MIDC)-Seoni-Lakhnadon-Narsinghpur-Sagar-Jhansi-Gwalior-Agra-Bharatpur-Jaipur.

I hope this post will help others -


2. Day 2 - Left Adilabad at 8:15 am, arriving in Butibori at 11:50 am. The road at border (pandharkawda in MH) is very bad. It gives way to craters large enough to ingest a small car like ours (Wagon R). I know that people have reported 6.5 hours from Hyd-Nagpur but I differ. It should be close to 8 hours without breaks.
After some hiccups finding the correct approach to Deepali Residency at Sagar, we were in our rooms a bit before 9 pm. Thus the 290 kms between Rukhad and Sagar were done in 3.5 hours flat.

3. Day 3 - Left the hotel at Sagar at 10 am and after a refueling stop arrived in Datia at 1:00 pm. This included one photo stop en route and getting lost attempting to enter Datia. Good road most of the way.
The Agra entrance is a nightmare (I think HVK had warned me here or on fb?) - The bypass is far from complete.

Thanks a lot for the detailed update. So it took almost 13 hours for you cover Adilabad to Sagar. Distance is approximately 600 KMS? How are the bad sections? Are there craters or is it just bumpy? Out of the 600 KMs approximately how many KMs is bad?


How much time did it take to cover Sagar to Agra? Distance is approxmately 450 KMs?

In the entire Sagar - Agra stretch, are there 4 lane roads? How long?

Sorry for asking too many questions. I am thinking of a drive on this road in 3 weeks. From Agra to Bangalore.

Hi Pramod

The actual drive time between Adilabad and Sagar wasnt 13 hours as we had a nearly one hour lunch break. I also wasted about ten minutes at a wrong turn at Butibori. The entrance from highway to reaching the hotel at Sagar must have taken at least half hour as the entire town was quite dar. So I'd reckon closer to 11 hours. The bad sections has craters - full on. Dont know how many kms. Was too shocked.

We reached Dhaulpur by sunset and approximately one hour from there to Agra but we used up complete two hours at Datia. So about 7 hours I think. Plenty of places near Datia the traffic goes on only one lane and this problem is almost total through dhaulpur to agra. Please check the map for kms.

I dont see the road improving in 3 weeks except for the stretch between Dhaulpur to Agra and Gwalior to Dhaulpur.

Default Re: Hyderabad to Jammu and Kashmir

Hi All,

We (4 adults and 2 children) did a road trip in the Dussera week on our Scorpio (with a roof top ski box "Cargoz tourister") from Hyderabad to Jabalpur, Jabalpur to Khajuraho, khajuraho to Sanchi and finally Sanchi to Hyderabad. The route was Hyderabad> via Nagpur bypass to Jabalpur>Khajuraho>via Sagar to Sanchi>via Bhopal bypass and Nagpur back to Hyderabad. Faced the same bad roads as mentioned in the thread by all between Nagpur and Hyderabad.

But this didn't stop us from planning a trip to J&K in early March. Rough plan is to make it to Jammu by the 3rd day. So our tentative stopover plan is Sagar on day 1, Panipat in day 2 and reach Jammu by day 3. This time it will be self, wife and 2 kids (5 and 3 years). Please suggest if this looks feasible.

Thanks in advance.

Sir,
It's going to be Delhi Agra Jhansi via Dholpur and then Lakhnadon Seoni Nagpur and finally on to Hyderabad. This will be the route that I intend to take.

Hi Gautam, you are planning to cover a distance of about 1500-1600 kms in about 21 hours. Having driven Gurgaon to Hyderabad at least thrice during this year, your plan needs to be reviewed, in my view for the following reasons:
1. Weather conditions: fog might cover most part of northern and central India and if this happens on the day you drive, all your plans will go haywire.
2. You also need to take breaks in between, and to rest even if you have others to take over to drive the car.
3. Road conditions: From Agra upto Jhansi, your average speed per hour will come down a lot because of two lane and bad road stretches. So also some stretches between Hinghanghat and Telengana border.
Yesterday we drove from Hyderabad to Chennai and believe me we had foggy weather conditions in and around Hyderabad till about 7 am.
All the best for your trip..

I agree with you. Driving to Hyderabad in a day depends on a lot factors, some of which you just mentioned. I am only praying for a no fog condition non 24th Dec 15. Agra to Jhansi and Hinhanghat sections have to be dealt with. Lets see how things pan out. will keep you posted. Thanks.

Exactly 2 more weeks to start our J&K trip from Hyderabad. Planning is in full force.

Road plan between Hyd and Del is as below and plan is to drive during night and rest during day at Sagar.

Plan is to stick to the North-South Corridor of Hyderabad-Nagpur(Bypass)-Sagar (halt)-Jhansi (Bypass)-Gowalior (Bypass)-Agra (Bypass thru Dholpur and Mathura)-Gurgaon(halt).

As I will be going to Sohna Road, goggle maps suggests avoiding YEW as a whole and reach Sohna directly from Mathura. Does anyone have any experience of the same?

Hi,

I have used the Mathura Palwal Sohna Gurgaon route long back. It's no way comparable to using YEW but it was ok as I did not have to go through Faridabad and Delhi to reach Gurgaon. The other route shown by Google maps is using the Kundli Manesar Palwal expressway to reach Sohna from Mathura. Have not used this route even once. May be they have opened this expressway recently.

The forest section between Nagpur to Seoni is not in good condition. The preferred route nowadays is to go through Nagpur city and take the Chhindwara route to reach Sagar.

Planning to do Bangalore - Dehradun in April first week. Wanted to know if this is doable in 2 days. How bad are the bad stretches? Also is the distance till Sagar doable in a day?

My ride would be a Volvo V40CC which has a clearance of 145mm. Will this be a problem in the bad stretches?
