I would suggest Hyderabad-Nagpur-Seoni (Rookhad) Day-1, Seoni-Narsinghpur-Sagar-Jhansi-Gwalior-Agra-Delhi Day-2. Easily doable in 2 days then why to waste an extra day. Roads also have improved a lot in this North South Corridor.

Chhindwara route. Please note that construction work is in progress on the Chhindwara bypass. You have to go on the wrong side in one subway under construction to drive towards Narsingpur. Otherwise, you will end up driving towards Seoni.

Chindwara-Narsingpur is the better one. Many have referred to it on the forum.

Update :

Did Bangalore-Delhi-Bangalore this month.
Onward route was via Bhopal, and the roads around MP capital were real bad.
Return route was :
Delhi-Agra-Gwalior-Jhansi-Sagar-Narsinghpur-Chhindwara-Nagpur-Hyderabad-Bangalore

Bad roads only around Hinganghat, Gwalior-Jhansi. But not as bad as the ones near Bhopal on the Nagpur-Bhopal road. Hinganghat railway bridge is still incomplete. Are people even working on it?

Guys, planning this route from Delhi to Bangalore:

Delhi---- Jaipur Chittorgarh Dhule Shirdi Satara ---- Bangalore.

How are the roads on the stretch from Jaipur to Satara right now? Is the highway divided?

Leaving tomorrow morning.

A friend drove Delhi Mangalore via this route only last week. Overall conditions in terms of roads are good to very good.

However, remember that Dhule - Shirdi - Ahmednagar - Shirur - Nira - Satara can be a tactful stretch to manage, especially when you have driven on GQ type roads mostly.

He reported too much or miscellaneous traffic between Dhule and Shirdi and even beyond Shirdi till Ahmednagar which was irritating.

As an alternate, you can actually do Dhule - Nashik - Thane - Pune - Satara. This will offer a peaceful drive with good 4/6 lane roads all the way to Satara.

With this, the only disadvantage would be to cross Mumbai (and as well Pune) but if you manage your timings well, Mumbai crossing should be easy and crossing Pune is a matter of one road called "Bypass" anyway.

Pune - Satara has been good since a while now even with the expansion work.

On the section between Ahmednagar - Satara that helps you avoid Pune completely, here is the update from my drive last month:

Default Re: Delhi to Bangalore : Route Queries

I am planning a road trip from Bangalore to Delhi and returning. There are going to be 2 drivers and this is going to be first long road trip for both of us. We have done trips like Bangalore-Goa and Bangalore-Trivandrum before but nothing like this before.

While going I am considering the Golden Quadrilateral route with stops at Pune and Udaipur. Both these places have relatives where we could spend the night for free. In addition, this being our first long road trip, would be better not to immediately test our limits. So we would be reaching in 3 days, covering roughly 700-800 km every day.

While coming back, I think we can consider stretching a bit. Planning to leave Delhi early morning and reach Nagpur by the night. The second day, the remaining leg between Nagpur and Bangalore shall be covered.

Request your suggestions on road conditions, and how feasible these routes are, whether the 2 day return leg is a good idea. We both will be in a Honda Brio.

This might not be too helpful for you since you have picked a different routebut here goes

I did a solo 2.5 days run on my 10 years old 220 last weekend from gurgaon to bangalore.

Day 1: 11.15 am to 9 pm
Gurgaon - Jaipur bypass (initially a bit patchy due to diversions rest is fine)
Jaipur bypass - kishangarh turn (all good)
Kishangarh - nasirabad -chittorgarh (decent roads with occasional potholes.traffic is an issue due to wrong side bikers and even carwallahs )
Chittorgarh - Neemuch (excellent to good roads. Jaywalkers and cows will keep you brake happy)

Day 2: 5.15 am - 8.15 pm
Neemuch - mandsaur -- fairly ok roads.
Mandsaur - mhow bypass -- 70% good and some nightmarish potholes.
Mhow bypass - sendhwa - malegaon
Mostly good roads but with lots of speed breakers which kill the fun in the minor ghat sections.

From malegaon you can take the shirdi road - ahmednagar road to enter pune or you can take malegaon- nashik and then nashik - pune highway.
Google maps screwed me over by taking me through chandwad and then numerous state highways and village roads. Strictly avoidable.
Nashik - pune -- first 140 km is a joy. Post alephata too many double lane road traffic pileups and diversions. What a killjoy!

Day 3: 11.15 am to 12.15 am pune to bangalore.

Nothing much to report. Till satara you get some diversions but post that it's awesome most of the way.

Return is doable in 2 days. It will not be easy, but doable. You'll find bad roads only between Gwalior and Jhansi on the Delhi - Nagpur stretch. Take the Yamuna Expressway out of Delhi, to save on time and energy. We (2 drivers) did Gwalior to Nagpur in around 10.5 hours this April.

South of Nagpur, I think around 30 kms of stretch near Hinganghat is under construction and there is an unfinished railway overbridge that will slow you down. Good roads otherwise. It took us around 16 hours to cover this stretch, with lunch break.

Thank you all for all the information that has been shared here!

I am planning on driving solo from Gurgaon - Bangalore next week. Will be doing this in a 2011 Laura TSi with 77k KM on the clock and I plan on taking the GQ route with stops at Udaipur and Pune (I will spend an additional day at Pune before leaving to Bangalore). Any update on the road condition will be deeply appreciated.

A couple of questions:
-What precautions/checks do I need to take with the car?
I currently have no issues with the car (the base engine was replaced by Skoda in March this year, so it's practically brand new), brakes are fine and tyres are ~20K kms old. I've driven around 4k kms since the last service.

What additional tools/spares should I carry?
- Aside from the regular tool kit, spare tyre. Is a battery operated pressure pump/puncture repair kit necessary?

I am planning on the first stop at Udaipur and then drive to Pune on day 2. Would it be advisable to instead drive to Himmatnagar from Gurgaon on Day 1 and then Himmatnagar to Pune on Day 2?
- Sight seeing and other touristy activities are not important - I need to be in Bangalore on 30th October (Plan on starting from Gurgaon on 27/10).


Any suggestions for stay in Himmatnagar (I know Hotel Landmark is one) and amazing food stops along the way will be very very helpful! Passengers welcome too!

Thanks!
