Just wanted to know, which is the preferred route here?

The one via Bulandshahr/Aligarh or via Mathura? Which is easier to latch on to?

The one via Mathura. Don't even think about taking the Bulandshahr/Aligarh one. The roads are very good till Bulandshahr, if you take NH24 upto Hapur and then the right turn to Bulandshahr. But after that it's a nightmare.

Thanks for re-confirming my own thoughts. The Bulandshahr/Aligarh/Agra sector roads would never change. Would they!?

Many a times back, used to be a regular on these circuits travelling by the famed UPSRTC and DTC buses!

I was asking about Ghaziabad-Faridabad-Hodal-Mathura-Agra route,

I will be travelling on this route after almost 3 years now, so wanted to know if there are any major distruptions/diversions during the Kanwar Yatra?

The route is a totally stressfree drive.

However, a word of caution - be careful when you make a pitstop in between, and specially more if you are stopping at the dabchik tourist lodge for a pitstop. Once when i was travelling, 4 cars got looted of the belongings inside including mine, despite being locked. So just be careful about where you stop.

Also you may experience a bit of traffic while entering agra. Otherwise its a breeze.

Have a safe trip.

Thanks man for the word of caution and good wishes, however, I have been travelling on this route since time immemorable (atleast since 1998), because I basically belong to Agra and still have my parental house there.
I know this route like the back of my palm, BUT, since I was in Hyderabad from 2008 until May 2011 I didnt get a chance to travel via road.

My reason for posting here was if some changes have happened during this 3 yr time period and more importantly any blockages and diversion because of the Kanwar Yatra that started on 19 June.
