One of my favourite destinations, Kurnool offers many scenic as well as historic views. The road trip from Kurnool to Hyderabad is around 6 hours. The journey gets better with time.
Along the silent highways hidden covered by the shade of tress, the road route promises you an enthralling experience. You can also opt for the village route. The scenic beauty of the villages and the people there for sure will brighten up your trip.
Some of the must-see places in Kurnool are Yaganti temple and Kondareddy fort.
Being the head quarters of Telengana, Karim Nagar is the fifth largest city in the state. The road journey is quite and breezy and gives you an awesome experience. It takes 3 hours to reach Karim Nagar from Hyderabad and there are three routes to get there.
Be noted that there are not many eat outs present on the way so you need to carry snacks, water and other eateries with you. Since the roads are not so wide, it takes time to reach Siddipet which is a primary tourist destination.
If you are planning to travel beyond Siddipet, then I would recommend you to take Raji Rahadari route from Hyderabad. You can also take OR Haya Nagar route, and get off at Siddipet.
One thing that pops up in my mind when I think of Badami is Badami caves. The artistic excellence is reflected in every nook and corner of the caves. Nested in Karnataka, Badami is a lost world of historical culture and heritage.

The best route would be Hyderabad- Mahbub Nagar- Raichur- Badami highway. The wide roads and the journey are sure to keep you grooved.
Gulbarga or better known as Kalaburagi is famous for mix of cultural heritage. Many places are Nawaz Dargah, Sharana Basaveshwara temple. Ladle Mashak and Buddha Vihar make it a home for many religious attractions.
The travel time from Hyderabad to Gulbarga on road is approximately 5 hours. The best route from Hyderabad to Gulbarga is the Manneguda – Pargi -Sedam route. The twisty routes add livery to your drive. Do not forget to visit the Gulbarga fort.
Located in northern Karnataka, Pattadakal is a complex of Hinduism and Jainism architecture. The best time for road trips from Hyderabad to be Pattadakal is October- February. Because of the soaring and hot temperatures during summers, road trips are not advisable during this season.
