A friend of mine took this route a couple of months ago, driving his Thar. He went up to Pondicherry. Please rest assured that the road is nice all the way.

From your other post, I thought you were taking a break near Vizag (Tanuku)? It depends on the driving style / habits & a very early morning start on both days.

Yes you could do it if you are all by yourself. I was driving with a two year old on board so had to plan as many breaks to ensure complete comfort. All the best for your attempt, have fun![:)]

1600 Kms in one go will be stressful if you are the only one driving throughout. If you are comfortable with munching such a long distance then go ahead and give us tips[:)]

Sanku (SwiftKolkata), Yes I know you have done previous long distance at one go without any night halts. But as always again cautioning you of the fatigue factor which humans get hit without any indication.

Driving for more than 18 hours is as dis reccomended as is speeding above 120kph.

Have a happy journey
