Default Re: Pune to Kota - Route Info needed

Finally i did Pune to Kota road trip with my Vento on 10th Nov.
i had to go for Diwali to my hometown but my train ticket was on wait list.
i decided to wait till friday, 9th Nov. if ticket gets confirmed but i think it was my long pending wish of long drive calling.
I started on Saturday, 10th Nov. at 6 AM from Pune.
Route was decided via Ahmadabad. first i decided to stay in Ahmadabad at my friend's home.
i crossed mumbai without any traffic issue via Airoli bridge.
highway was absolute fantastic and driving was such a pleasure. i maintained speed of 120-140 km/h.
i got my first traffic jam of 5-6 km long on Ankleshwar-Bharuch bypass. i actually forgot the prior warning given here and continued on this bridge.
i was lucky enough to reach at a cut within 3 minutes of arriving at this point and from there went on to the wrong side which was totally empty.
i reached Ahmadabad at 2.30 PM. so based on my calculation and my physical driving stamina, i decided to continue driving and reach Kota by 11 PM.
surprisingly i was not feeling tired.

next traffic Jam was at Udaipur bypass, almost 2 km long. i decided to take U turn and went through Udaipur city.

i reached Kota @ 10 PM. Last 2 hours, i felt bit tired for last 2 hours but excitement of reaching home and surprise everybody was dominating.

i took the same route while coming back on 17th Nov. but with family from Jaipur. i took first break of 2 hours in Chittor to see fort.
then i took second break for 3 hours to see Udaipur. i visited Saheliyon ki Bari and Pichola Lake.
I took Stay at Ahmadabad.
Started on 18th Nov. from Ahmadabad at 8 AM and reached Pune at 4 PM.


This was the first real test of my Sygic Navigation maps on my newly acquired Micromax A110. it was really good once you set all the parameters and via points.
i never asked for any route confirmation to locals.

For the fun of it, you should also try (if you have not already tried)
Kota-Rawat Bhata-Singoli-Begun-Chittorh-Udaipur. It takes you through the Chambal valley. One of the "few" remaining
green locations in Rajasthan ! Though I am not sure how the roads are as of today. (NH76 is of course a beautiful 4-lane and
hence more compelling reason to take that rather than the route via Rawat Bhata)
