Default Noida to Ranthambore : Route Queries

I am planning to do a trip from Noida to Ranthambore in end March. Google suggests Yamuna expressway till Mathura, onwards to Bharatpur, Bayana, Hindaun city, Gaganpur city, to Sawai Madhopur.

Couldn't find any information on the route on the forum. Any body who has driven this route? Not sure about the stretch beyond Bharatpur.

Thanks in advance.

Ideal I think would have been via Jaipur/Dausa. But since NH8 has lots of diversions, alternative is good. But I dont how is Mathura-Bharatpur-Gangapur city section.
Since you start from Noida, expressway makes a very good sense. But good to know the status beyond Mathura.

Another point is how easy it is to bypass when switching from Expressway to Bharatpur road.

Yesterday, impromptu at 7 am felt like riding out. Get geared, throw my DSLR, spanner, spares, a book, overnighters in a tank bag and am on the road at 8 am sharp.

To cut the long story short - From sector 93A it took me 2 hrs to reach Mathura and another hour to hit Bharatour. Needless to say, the road is excellent till Mathura exit on the eWay. Exit to mathura is ok, mathura to Bharatpur road is ok but high density traffic.

Check with anyone beyond. Why don't you call a couple of Hotels in Bharatpur telling them that you are planning an overnight over there (even if you are not) and how is the road from beyond? They should be able to provide information from the travel desk.

Please post how it was if you go ahead.

I did research the Alwar route, but since I stay on the expressway and intend to start in the afternoon, this allows me to beat the traffic to Gurgaon (saving atleast an hour). The only concern is the route beyond Bharatpur since I will be travelling with wife and kids, don't want to be stuck in the middle of nowhere

Gaurav its better to take YEW via Bharatpur.

I would suggest

Noida - Mathura (Exit YEW), NH2, (SH 33) till Bharatpur - Dausa - Lalsot - Sawai Madhopur.

IMO the only concern is from Dausa to Lalsot (40kms). Can't comment the road condition.
Lalsot - Madhopur is now toll road.

If I was you, I would start early in the morning from Noida and take

Noida - Delhi - Gurgaon - Jaipur - Kotkhawada (left) - Lalsot - Sawai Madhopur.

Only because Dausa to lalsot stretch is very bad!!

This was exactly the reason, I was not sure which one to suggest.

- He stays close to e-way and hence makes a perfect case to take that option
- But as Deky mentioned, Dausa-Lalsot is not good, it may not worth it.
- Other question is how bad is Delhi-Japipur itself thanks to diversions?

Is there a way to bypass the Dausa-Lalsot road? How is Bharatpur-Bayana-Hindaun-Gangapur city?

Actually there are lots nd lots of routes but still there is no best route with the best roads leading to Sawai Madhopur from Delhi or Jaipur. I can not comment on Bayana- Hindaun route as I have not travelled on it.

I will list out the various routes and then the op can decide which one to take.

1. Noida - YEW - Mathura - Bharatpur (NH11) - Dausa - Lalsot - SWM. Except the Dausa - lalsot stretch rest is excellent through out. Mathura to Bharatpur also will take time. As per google maps it is 440 kms

2. Noida - YEW - Mathura - Bharatpur (NH11) - Dausa - bassi - toonga Lalsot - SWM. Here you will miss the dausa to lalsot stretch but will have to go through interirior roads. These roads are well paved between bassi - Toonga - lalsot. Only Mathura to Bharatpur will take time. As per google maps it is 482 kms

3. You could do the bassi - toonga - Lalsot route by coming on NH8 from Delhi to Jaipur. Google maps suggest it is around 437 kms. NH 8 isnt that bad, atleast road quality is good, diversions are there but well marked. If you staret early, you could miss the traffic as well. Crossing Dausa and lalsot town main be a bit messy but wont take much time.

4. You could come on NH8 till Jaipur and then take the TONK road till Chaksu. From Chaksu main junction take a left towards lalsot. Its a narrow road but pretty ok. At lalsot take the lalsot bypass and meet the Sawai Madhopur Mega highway. Google maps say it is 447 kms. The problem here is tonk road that is being widened, hence a lot of messy traffic with diversions

5. Like in option 4 take the tonk road till Kothun (as marked in google maps) and then take a left for Lalsot. Take the bypass at lalsot and continue towards Sawai madhopur. Kothun to lalsot road is single but wide but not in best of the conditions (though much better than Dausa - lalsot). Google map says 456 kms

Now that I have confused you with 5 options, lemme simplify by giving you my suggesion for 2 routes you should take.

You should come till jaipur on NH8. Its not that bad if you start in the morning. Then take options, in order of preference, either option 3 or 4 or 5.

Forget YEW as Dausa- lalsot is really really bad.

Regards

Excellent suggestions Deky and thanks a lot for listing out the options. I guess i will start a day later (and thus early morning) and go with your suggestion.

Default re: Noida to Ranthambore : Route Queries

There is one more route that can be taken -

Noida - GGN - Dharuheda - Bhiwadi - Alwar (toll road) - Dhausa - Lalsot - SWM

This way you avoid all the construction that i going on in NH8 and save a lot of time.

Only issue is Dhausa - Lalsot ------ but the last time i went to R'bhore - the road was being constructed. So i guess you should see improved road there also.

In any case it is only 40 Kms! Also - dont know which vehicle you have, but i have done this on Scorpio and Wagen R - and i was ok, not too bad.

Hi, visiting ranthambore this weekend by road (self drive) from Delhi. Has anyone done this stretch lately, want to check on the road conditions. Last when I went in 2010 roads were in bad shape, had taken alwar-dausa-lalsot route (dausa-lalsot was in particular pretty bad)

Hi Friends, this weekend I am planning to visit Ranthambore. Will start from Noida. Planning to take Mathura/bharatpur route. I have some concern on dausa-lalsot stretch. Is this stretch still in bad shape to travel? Or should I take bassi-tonga-latsot route to avoid dausa?
Thanks

Have taken Dausa - lalsot stretch on March 15, the rough patch overall is about 5 kms between the entire stretch. Rest is all good.
