Are you someone perpetually caught by wanderlust? Or simply a travel lover, who just enjoys the freedom that comes with traveling?

Whoever you are, you would know the joy a road trip brings.

And if you are a beginner and still exploring different travel experiences, then it makes all the more sense to experiment with a road trip. Hit the highway and enjoy the long drive that takes you from your comfort zone to a place full of surprises. Take the trip from Bangalore to Hyderabad, for instance. From one tech city to another, the route between the Garden City and the City of Pearls is one of the most popular ones for a road trip in the Deccan region.

Also, the wide, uninterrupted highway makes traveling from Bangalore to Hyderabad by road is super convenient.

Starting Your Journey

The distance between Bangalore and Hyderabad is approximately 600Km and takes somewhere between seven to ten hours, depending upon the route you take.

The best way to make most of your road trip is to opt for the smartest and most convenient way of travel. You can, of course, drive your mean machine, slam the brakes and take off. But think! If this is your first-ever road trip from Bangalore to Hyderabad, or you are out on a break from the routine, would you rather not absorb every minute of it? And if you involve yourself in endless driving, would you be able to enjoy the road trip at all?

So, ditch the car or your bike, and rent a car instead. You can easily book a dependable cab from Bangalore to Hyderabad with an experienced driver, who is not only well-versed with the roads and knows where to turn or stop for breaks but also save you from the constant attention on the road. Thus, you can simply sit back, watch the horizon pass by, or perhaps, let your mind take flights of fantasy.

Your Route

The faster, better, and most used route is via NH44. Roughly, this is how your travel route will look like-

Hebbal -> Chikkaballapur -> Bagepally -> Penugonda -> Ananthapur -> Gutty -> Dhone -> Kurnool -> Jedcharla -> Hyderabad.

The road from Bangalore to Hyderabad passes through the pleasant countryside of Karnataka and some interesting tourist locales that leads to the smaller towns of Andhra Pradesh, before touching Hyderabad. Enjoy the scenic drive through the shifting landscape from sprawling fields and farmlands to the rocky hills of the Deccan plateau.

Depending upon the season you are traveling, you will see different shades of the season, more prominently beyond the city borders.

The Drive

You can start early in the morning from Bangalore, so you can reach Hyderabad by evening. Within an hour, you will touch the state border. A majority of your drive would be through southern parts of Andhra Pradesh. After crossing the tollway at Bagepalli, the highway opens up for faster and better travel.

You can make a detour towards Lepakshi, and stop by to admire the beautiful ancient temple. It lies at about 20KM off NH7, after Bagepalli.

When on a road trip, there are no escaping hunger pangs. Most of the roadside eateries on this route tucked between Bangalore and Puttaparthi. Beyond that, highway restaurants are a little sparse, but you can easily find small shacks and tea shops.

You can take your next break at Ananthapur or drive a few kilometers north and stop at the ISCKON Temple. Don’t miss the Kumbakarna statue between Penugonda and Anathapur.

Once you reach Kurnool, you will almost be on the last leg of your journey. Here onwards, the roads get better and smoother. Just before you close into Hyderabad, make a stop at Mahbubnagar. The once prominent part of the Golconda Kingdom, Mahbubnagar has many interesting relics of forts, mosques, temples, and antiquated structures that speak of its long-lost magnificence.
