Thanks Bro.
Speed breakers can be dealt with carefully since it is a Thar.
Ref Petrol pumps.
My best case scenario is 450km range. Petrol AT Thar. So I will certainly want to fill up at least once en route since this is a 600km drive. Seriously is there such a paucity of gas stations on such an important highway?

First 2 I've filled personally. Other 2 I don't know the direction am just getting from the POIs I've collected, you got to figure them out from Google Maps.

Will be staying around Banjara Hills and will do a little loafing inside Hyderabad.
Will plan to leave for Bangalore on Sunday after breakfast. Lunch en route. Want to be back in Bangalore by mid to late afternoon.
What is the driving time I need to plan for?
Relatively sedate driving. 90-110kmph. Mahindra Thar. Me as driver and 2 passengers with light luggage.

Would appreciate any help including an optimum route map from experts.
Airport to airport budget for a 6 hr drive with normal avg speeds of 80-100.I call the Devanahalli to Shamshabad drive a 2+2+2 drive.2hrs to Anantpur,2hrs from there to Kurnool and another 2 hrs to Shamshabad.

From shamshabad head straight and take the PVNRE and you land up in Tolichowki/Mehdipatnam.From thereon the areas are all more or less part of Banjara Hills

Eateries you can find their locations at this link that i have compiled over the years.Last updated in May last year-so give or take maybe a 5-10% error

http://shorturl.at/kvI57

Gmaps link to entry point of Banjara Hills.Depending on where you are headed to in BHills,you would have to adjust your map

Do not take the Hyderabad ORR. Instead opt for the PVNR, which will land you in front of the Sarojini Devi Eye Hospital at Mehdipatnam.

From there Banjara hill is hardly a couple of minutes away.

If you have time, try out the Haleem at Cafe 555 and Biryani at Spice 6.

The map links by https://www.team-bhp.com/forum/members/ranjitp1.html are perfect.

The price difference in petrol between KA and AP is ~16 Rs. Because of which a lot of gas smuggling is happening in this area and also the main reason for very less gas stations in this area for ~100 Kms. You will find some, but, the quality is questionable. IIRC, We even had a thread on this topic.

Re: Hyderabad to Bangalore : Route Queries

[URGENT]

Hi, we're planning to drive from Hyderabad to Hampi tomorrow. Google Maps is deterring us from using the the NH44 saying there's a road closure (note from morning). Wanted to check if anyone may be aware of any incident which may have caused this. The alternate route goes through the SH to Raichur and then on to Hampi; would appreciate feedback on this route as well. Thank you!

only I could think of is due to elections there might be some rally (may be minister or even PM)in that area, so roads might have been closed as a precautionary measure.

Re: Hyderabad to Bangalore : Route Queries

After the Shamshabad airport exit road towards Shadnagar Flyover construction is going on expect traffic congestion I was stuck for 30 mins in this jam last weekend.
All the flyovers between Veldurthi and Dhone is complete.Even Kurnool bypass is a breeze now.

The best way to drive to Kerala from Hyderabad when not on a non-stop drive is to break day 1 at Salem onwards,with a 5am departure from Shamshabad,you should ideally be at Salem by 5pm.If your end destination is towards the south of Kerala then you might be tempted to stretch it to Dindigul which has a few good hotels.

If the destination is towards Thrissur ,Kochi etc,then Salem is ideal.With an early breakfast,you could be home for a late lunch

I have been trying to keep this link updated with all the eateries,like i said have been a little irregular off-late.

Been travelling to kerala quite often from hyderabad and i wanted to take this route but was unsure if the roads were good enough and well lit considering it could be evening/right after dusk that we would be plying on this route. I have a trip coming up next weekend and any help in clarifying this and suggestions for a night halt would be appreciated.

I had travelled last week from Hyderabad to Coimbatore and back.
Devanahalli - Sullibele - Hoskote the road is not in good shape lots of undulations and pot holes and added to that four laning work is also going on.

Hoskote - Chikkatirupathi - Alambadi gate
This stretch is also not in good condition.

Alambadi gate to Hosur
Road is in good condition.

On the way Back took the route Hosur - Malur - Hoskote
Hosur- Malur is in good condition
Malur - Hoskote is average but it is a four lane road with one diversion.

From Hoskote took the route on Old Madras road upto the Decathalon and took the right turn to Budigere and Devanahalli
I am familiar with this route. This route is better then Devanahalli - Sullibele - Hoskote.
Hoskote toll plaza toll has to be paid that is only problem.

Re: Hyderabad to Bangalore : Route Queries

I travelled to Hyderabad from Bangalore (actually Avalahalli) a couple of days back and the roads were silky smooth. Toll charges (synonym: User Collection Fee ) are slightly on the higher side but the condition of roads would not make you feel cheated.

Started from Bangalore at around 8:30 AM and reached Hitech City by 6 PM with a lunch break of 40 minutes and loo breaks in between.

Re: Hyderabad to Bangalore : Route Queries

Friend did BLR-HYD-BLR over the weekend and is mighty irritated with the "infinite" number of rumbler strips and the speed-breakers. A good road surface is one thing, but the kind of rumbler strips that our highways and even city roads have are a pain.

I travel from BLR - HYD - BLR at least 3 times a year , have seen enough accidents that happened because of these illogical rumbler strips. Have personally experienced my car loosing tractions because of them

Re: Hyderabad to Bangalore : Route Queries

Potholes have appeared in the road from Bangalore to Hyderabad, especially post Kurnool. Most of them are surface layer deep ( couple of inches) but in the last 60 kms, some of holes are much deeper and wider. Must be the recent rains which was battering the region. Even the Hyderabad ORR has some potholes.

Wow! I did not realise Malur-Hoskote is a 4-lane road! Good to note. Also instead of coming back to Budigere from Malur, you can try the Malur-Sidlagatta-Chikkaballapur option. It bypasses all the pain points. Route Link

Wait for the STRR section to open up and then it makes sense to go via Hoskote-Devanahalli. (Some times. I think it might still be fun to drive via Sidlagatta for the old 2-Lane charm!)
