    Route:- Hyd>Vijayawada>Rajahmundry>Vizag>Bhubaneswar>Balasore>Kharagpur>Midnapore.

    Halt in Vizag ( return journey with same Halt station).

    Last time we did Hyderabad>Bhubaneswar in a single day. Photos & details will be posted during trip or after the trip.

    Found couple of pics from folder ( forgot that my brother took some snaps that time).

    Enjoy the drive Suman.

    With the kind of roads, Hyd-Bhuvaneshwar is easily doable in a day. But, a good idea to chill in Vizag (Instead of Bhuvneswar), especially during this season.

    Thanks Vignesh, in 2011 Hyd (4:00 A.M) to Vijayawada took 6.5 hrs, though we reached Bhubaneswar at 10:00 P.M. This time is relaxed driving :).

    If you start at 4:00 AM now, with the awesome roads, you will be having your breakfast at Vijayawada and lunch in Vizag :)
    Good Luck with your journey. Drive safe.

    Thanks Kiran, Ganges & Dhaya.

    Ganeges, I am not comfortable in night driving ( max till night 10 P.M and after 6 A.M). With 2 Driver this 1500 km can be done in a single day with night driving ( 20 hrs total driving excluding break).

    I normally take 2-3 hrs break in Lunch, 30 min-30 min 2 breake for Snacks. Extra 4 hrs needed in single day Journey. So Vizag driving will take 8+4=12 hrs, same from Vizag to Midnapore.

    Breakfast at home, lunch at Vijayawda, snacks at Rajahmundry, Rest at Vizag ( 2-3 hrs constant journey non stop to each point then rest).

    Next day Breakfast at Vizag, Tea at Brahmapur, lunch at Bhubaneswar, snacks at Balasore, rest at Home.

    My driving is 2-3 hrs driving and brake at a point after each2-3 hrs driving :).

    Congrats suman for safely completing the solo drive. Waiting to hear more about the roads especially, the one from jaleshwar to kanthi. I have heard bad reviews about that state highway but that was a year and half before, hope that the road conditions have improved now.
