Wow! How much time from Kolkata to BLR (NH5), can it be done in 2 days ? Approx 2000 kms, and obviously this thread deserves more pictures.

Very Nice !! More & more people are getting up these days and making trips like this.

The GQ is an awesome run I am told, I have done about 30 % of these roads but still so much left to be explored.

So, was this just a get up & go sort of a trip OR a planned one with proper stops & sightseeing. From some of the pics I can make out that it is a sight seeing sort of a trip !!

Kindly post more pics and also your experiences of the GQ, like running costs, Toll Booths, Fuel Consumed, Hotel Stays and whether you faced any problems with the Local Police while crossing states.

Looking forward to the rest

Very Unfortunate that internet is down for today,at my office.
Wait guys, there would be many more pics, and a detailed xls log too.

But the travelogue would be mostly concentrated around road pics and condition update.
