Default Asansol to Jim Corbett & Kumaon

Hi friends,
I wish to go on a road trip from Asansol(WB) to Kumaon end of May'14.
I would be driving my Ford Figo Diesel along with my mother, mother in law and my wife.
Keeping in mind that i would be the only driver and male member, any advise and route suggestion would be most welcome.
Total 13 days in hand i wish to relax and enjoy my drive.

Saw your post on your other travelogue. The route map you have posted looks fine. While coming down from Munsiyari I took that route till Allahabad. But you might want to PM HV Kumar and get an idea of the latest road conditions.

When in Kumaon, best to ask the local guys about which route to take to and from Munsiyari. There a few options, so you need to know about latest road conditions.

Will my BSNL/Airtel mobile internet work in Kumaon region?

Are there petrol pumps available upto Munsiyari?
What will be the day/night time temperatures there?

Yes, at least in some places near towns and villages. I had Airtel and didn't have an issue.

In May, should be pleasant. Like Darjeeling perhaps.
