Vapi-AMD 6hrs (380kms) / AMD-Udaipur(260kms) 4-5hrs / Udaipur-Jaipur(420kms) 7hrs

Remember to go through Ankleshwar town taking the Golden Bridge.Narmada bridge on NH8 would be terrible jammed in all possibilities.Take the ring road at Ahmedabad.Take the Baroda Expressway to Ahmedabad and not the NH8 to Ahmedabad.

Remember to take the NH76-NH79 from Udaipur and not the NH8.NH8 has ghat sections and is two laned while the NH76 is 4 laned and is part of the GQ.From Udaipur bypass on NH8,follow directions for Udp airport and that would take you onto the 4 laned NH76(via Chittor-Bhilwara-Kishengarh-Jaipur)

Remember to retain toll receipt on GVK expressway between Kishangarh and Jaipur as you need to show it at the second toll booth on the eway.

Raipur Hyd is just a 12-13 hour drive with a large majority on 4 laned roads.Major bad sections are between Hinghanghat & AP-MH Border(Pandharkawda) on NH7.Raipur-Nagpur 4-5hrs and Nagpur-Hyd is a 8hr drive.

16 Nov Day 17 Spend a day in Hyderabad

This is just a 8hr drive at your slowest best,if you leave early morning as planned by you,you would be in Bangalore for lunch.

IMO,Nov would be too early for fog to set in.
