Dear members, I am planning to drive from Hyderabad to Allahabad and towards Varanasi and back around 24th December, 2014. From Hyderabad to Allahabad is around 1180 Kms (acc..to Google maps). Myself and Brother are planning to drive. I have never driven this route or that long a journey. Having said that, may I request the forum members to post their experiences on the Road conditions, stop overs, any known lodging, per-requisites for the trip such as any tools / extra coolants et al. Many thanks in advance for your valuable suggestions. Best regards, Krishna Menon.
