Default Bhopal - Raipur - Puri - Bhitarkanika - Konark - Rambha

Hi! Friends

Back from a awesome trip of western ghats and now planning a self drive trip to Orissa in winter vacations . I have made a rough plan. Need your help in fine tuning the program

24th Dec - Bhopal Nagpur
25th Dec - Nagpur - Puri
26th Dec - Puri
27th - Puri - Bhitarkanika
28th - Bhitarkanika
29 - Bhitarkanika to Konark
30 - Konark
31 - Konark to Rambha
1 Jan - Rambha
2 - Rambha to Raipur
3 - Raipur to Bhopal

Please let me know your views about above plan. Any place requires a cut in day or anything can be added. I was thinking about Mangalajodi. How far it is from Rambha ? Any other suggestions. Any info on road conditions between Raipur and Puri ?


Thanks

Bhopal to Nagpur is easy, Bhopal Itarsi Betul Nagpur. Itarsi Betul is not a good road, but that's the only 80 kms of patch that is average. Hopefully by December it becomes better.

Nagpur Raipur NH6 - nothing major to write about. 5 hours of a boring drive on a straight 4 lane road. For roads beyond Raipur to Puri, please check the following road update by a friend on a different forum - https://www.facebook.com/groups/hvku...2928506354565/

However, Bhopal to Raipur can also be done via Bhopal Piparia Chhindwara Seoni Balaghat Gondia Rajnandgaon Durg Raipur

or even

Bhopal Jabalpur Shahpur Dindori Amarkantak Achnakmar Bilaspur Raipur. The biggest advantage of the first option is a 4 lane after Betul, whereas the other two options are entirely double lane.

rkhare - which route would you recommend for Nagpur-Bhopal, given the latest road conditions on this stretch?
