Default Planning Hyderabad - Faizabad road trip. Need Info.

Hi All,

I am planning for a road trip from Hyderabad to Faizabad and back in mid November.

I have total of 6 days, so here is my plan 2 days for upward journey, 2 days in Faizabad or nearby places and 2 days return journey. I intendend to drive only during day time, strict no for night driving. Confirmed people for now are 2 and 2 more likely to join, all guys. Maruti Dzire VDI is the car.

Info required -
Best route
Total distance
Road conditions
Places for night halt
Decent places to eat

Preferred places to fill up diesel, my car can run 600Kms on one tank full.

Request you to please put in your inputs / suggestions / information.

The best route is Hyderabad-Nagpur-Jabalpur-Rewa-Allahabad-Faizabad and the distance is around 1,300 km.

You can tank up enroute at Nagpur on Day 1 and Allahabad on Day 2.

You can break journey at Jabalapur and also tank up while there.

You will need to start very very early on Day 1 to reach Jablapur before sunset.

I am sure more information will be forthcoming ...

Drive safely!

Road conditions are bad in the AP-MH border and after Rewa. For the rest, NH7 is excellent. Avoid driving after Jabalpur at night. I am sceptical that you can reach Faizabad in 2 days without night driving, I think you will have to budget for 1 extra day. Getting to Jabalpur on Day 1 itself will require some zestful driving with early morning start.

How safe is night driving in MP/UP?

Not heard of any dacoity problems in any specific route, but one does have problems with petty extortions by cops. In the real unsafe sections, there are convoys and police protection. I have driven through many MP sections at night, but bear in mind that facilities are poor or non-existent and if you do have problems en route, you will be stuck.

I would certainly avoid night driving in UP - am from Lucknow - and I've grown up hearing instances of crimes in these areas at night.
