Pench National Park is between Nagpur ( some 40-50 km after Nagpur ) and Seoni ( MP)
Hyderabad to bangalore in future will take 5 to 6 hours once the 4 lane road is completed. This might take another 1 year to complete.
And talking about hyderabad to Nagpur, till adilabad its fine but the maharasthra track is an head ache but the work is going on for 4 lane road. Another 5 years to complete the whole NH7. Then one from south can go north with a family trip in car. Family can enjoy trips going north or north Indian can trip to south anytime.
I often once bored me and my friends do this hyderabad to Nirmal or Hyderabad to Kurnool trip and back, because one dont get tired and you can be back after a good long trip,
New updates for the road condition from Varanasi to Bangalore in Jan 2011, journey done on 8,9,10th of Jan 2011.
From Varanasi to Aurai ( Take NH2 ) its nice 4 lane expressway for 46KM, then take left towards Mirjapur next 13 km normal 2 lane highway ( not bad, can maintain 70-90km/hr) till Hanumana
After Hanumana till next 15km the road is very bad till Mauganj then good two lane till Maihar and again 10-12 km bad after maiher, then good two lane highway upto 25km before seoni,
Then 4 lane express starts 25 km before seoni and ends atleast 25 km after seoni and almost road upto Nagpur is under construction to 4 lane express but even operational one lane is good.
After Nagpur the current condition is as:
100 KM 4 lane express from Nagpur
Next 35 KM Bad 2 lane road,
next 30 kM expressway,
Next 25 Km Single lane,
Next 140 KM expressway upto Parkit,

Dear Pankaj, Congratulations for the successful long trip and thanks so much for the excellent posting - Vijay Thatte
I hope may this will help somebody..
I just had tour from Hyderabad to Nagpur in my new maruti K10 car on 17 may 2011.Total distance covered by me was 550km.Overall I found distance of ~350 km to be very good condition in fact 4 lane road.Remaining distance of 150km u can term it as good ,bad even worst road .This 150 km road can be divided in three parts.80km after Kamareddy and till u cross Armour in AP.50 km road near pipri near to Hinganghat in MH.I feel if u can manage these 100-150km road then Overall journey will be smooth. Most of these ~150km road are under construction,may get change to 4 lane in 1-2 years.Be careful in rainy season and try to avoid night driving.
It took me total 9.5 Hrs with two breaks of 40 minutes.
Also to mention i got 24 km/lit mileage with 15%AC on and 21 km/ltr with 100% AC on for return jouney with family.
Hi Pankaj Singh,
Your post is really helpful...Thanks..
I am planning a road trip in late dec 2011 from hyderabad to varansi. Kindly share your pics and any other useful info. Alternatively you can send an email on firstname.lastname@example.org
Thanks in advance.
Hope you have already embarked on this trip. My best wishes for this journey. I have been following your travelogue very closely since your maiden trip. In fact it helped us a lot when we undertook our trip from Bangalore to Patna as of June 2011. I am keen to know the present road condition on NH7 beyond Nagpur till Varanasi. Last year the condition was not great, and I am hearing horrific stories post the monsoons.
Keeping my fingers crossed.
