How is the road condition presently considering the flooding of roads that took place enroute and in and around Goa last month, especially after Bagalkot.

Is there any other better route for going to South Goa from Hyderabad.

Thanks in advance

Default Re: Hyderabad - Goa : Route Queries

Got back from Goa trip last night (Oct 2 - Oct 6). Google maps sent us along the Mollam route (closed for road works for the next few months). We had do a detour back to the road via Jamboti. Google Maps also sends you via a shortcut(?) via Shiroli that is also best avoided. Google maps itself says possible road closure but yet decided to send us there. This was not all, time and again Google Maps chooses local routes, roads through villages to save questionable few minutes. Always choose the state highway (50 & 52) instead, the time difference will be minimal if any, the roads are much better.

Here's the recommended route between Hyderabad and Goa.
Hyderabad -> Humnabad -> Gulbarga (ring road) -> Bagalkot (stay on SH 50 and 52, avoid Google Maps suggestions here) -> Belgaum (avoid GMap suggestion via Khanapur) -> Jamboti -> Chorla Ghat > Goa.

On the way to Goa we stopped at Vijaypura (Kyriad Vijayapura, thanks for the tip @9tMax, this is a decent hotel, avoid the road facing rooms for a quiet stay). But this is too early a stop (5-6 hrs) when heading to Goa. Instead, recommend staying at Belgaum for a night halt, rest for the Ghat section to Goa the next day.

For food options, recommend Belgaum (we had decent veg food at Saffron restaurant), Vijaypura (Kyriad) and Gulbarga (we had lunch at The South run by a family, pretty good home food and spicy, next to Ibaco, didn't see restrooms around though), avoid Atharva hotel/restaurant near Gulbarga ring road, restrooms weren't clean though food was okay.

On the way back, we started in South Goa at 9:30 AM and reached Hyderabad close to midnight with halts for lunch at Belgaum and Dinner at Gulbarga. Best done in a relaxed manner, helps that both my wife and I drive and we split time behind the wheel. Watch out for the dogs strolling across, unmarked speed breakers, usual things to watch out for on our state highways.

Looking for suggestions for restaurants with restrooms at Gulbarga and in-between Vijaypura and Belgaum. The recommended route is still the same i.e.
Hyderabad -> Humnabad -> Gulbarga (ring road) -> VijayPura -> Bagalkot -> Belgaum -> Jamboti -> Chorla Ghat > Goa. Incase there any suggestions/changes to the same, Please advise.

Once you exit Gulbarga bypass towards Vijay pura you have some restaurants.

Vijay pura to Belgaum you cannot find decent restaurants.
You need to stock up food in the car

Google maps shows the following options i.e.
a) Poornanand veg restaurant and Brewberry Gulbarga as options on the Ring road Gulbarga
b) Sai Sagar Family Restaurant in Bagalkot
c) Shindhe Green Garden Family Restaurant and Shanti Priya Hotel at Lokapur (Between Bagalkot and Belgaum).

Hope these are good and safe for breaks in-between.
