Dear Wanderernomad,

Thank you for all the inputs. Left NE in 1992, so its been sometime and even after 24 years and it appears that things have not changed much. Feet are itching to hit the roads on a long drive again after our recent Bhutan and Leh drives. Been on a number of short trips of 500+ kms, one way, this year.

Will be out to to North in Aug/Sep and once we get back I will request you for your POA.

Regards

Col Jude

In the month of December, me along with my friends (4) are planning for NE trip.

We will start from Bangalore on 2nd December and reach Guwahati latest by 7th December.


Few challenges,
1. Due to some prior commitments, we will be able to leave Bangalore only around 9 am (at the earliest) on 2nd December.
2. That week (03-07 Dec), me and my friend are still on office duty.
Plan: 05:00 am to 02:00 pm driving; post that working hours.
3. I will be the only driver from Bangalore - Guwahati. Though one of my friend will be a shotgun. Rest will join us at Guwahati.


Vehicle: Isuzu V-Cross.


After consulting few of my friends, we are planning to take below route from Bangalore - Guwahati. Posting here to get any additional inputs and mainly road conditions.

Day 1 - 2: Bangalore - Cuttack [2nd - 3rd December]

How was your trip?
It was a fantabulous road trip with my chuddy-buddies.

Total of 11,500 kms over the course of 27 days and with the right vehicle, it was even more memorable!

First day of the drive was like,
Coffee - TN (Coimbatore)
Breakfast - KA (Bangalore)
Lunch - AP
Even Snacks - Telangana (Hyd)
Dinner - AP (Vijayawada)

Return was something similar, non-stop drive (apart from bio and food break) from Kharagpur to Bangalore (via Nellor, Tirupati) in 27 hours.
Return we were two drivers.


NE places covered:
Assam - Guwahati, Kaziranga
Nagaland - Kohima, Khanoma -> Hornbill festival.
Arunachal Pradesh - Dambuk (Orange Festival), Anini, Pasighat
Meghalaya - Shillong

Bhutan - Phuentsholing
- entered as we were passing near the border and my friends wanted to tick Bhutan off in their list (in this trip alone). Landed up driving around Phuentsholing and came back to India, parked our vehicle and walked back by foot just to have some beer (ofcourse very very very well within the limits) and momos.

On journey - about 25 kms before Bhagalpur till we crossed Vikramshila Setu there was heavy traffic with trucks parked for kms on one side.
