Don't know about all the sections but Nagpur to Hyderabad was done by me quite a few times in July and August. The pandharkavda road was really bad and should be done during day time. I would opt for route two just to avoid this section unless others suggest otherwise.

Couple of things about Route 2.

After leaving Dilli all cities & towns mentioned therein up to Dhule are essentially bypassed. One has to leave the highway to get into any of these.

Between Chittorgarh and Dhule basic facilities are few and spread thin. I would not recommend this route to anyone travelling with families in tow.

Apart from this it is a fast route except for the bit after Chittorgarh due to the limestone mines and cement plants, translates in to about 40 odd kilometres of off roading.

I finished my trip and decided to go with Route 1 for novelty. I would definitely recommend this due to good road conditions (except 200 Km), less traffic and good scenic views.

Default Chandigarh - Bangalore Route Queries !

Hello fellow BHPians,

Planning to drive down to Bangalore from Chandigarh next week.

Jaipur - Ahmedabad - Pune - Bangalore

VS

Delhi - Agra - Nagpur - Hyderabad - Bangalore

Kindly suggest ! This is not really a touristy trip. I just need to be in Bangalore with my car & equipment before the 9th of May thus not looking at any detours on the way. Won't mind having some good food on the way.

Anyone who has done either of these roads recently ?

I have done both the routes recently.

1) Route via Jaipur - Ahmedabad is good all through but it is longer and has few traffic heavy sections. You will have to cross Mumbai too. But no need to worry about pit-stops at all.

2) Route via, Agra - Nagpur is shorter and will be quicker as well. But then there are couple of bad stretches.

Agra - Gwaloir - This will slow you down while crossing towns.

Gwalior - Jhansi: 4L construction has been abandoned and no proper sign boards for diversions. Roads are not in great condition, crossing villages takes time as well. This is the slowest sector between Agra to Bangalore.

50 Kms stretch on the Nagpur - Adilabad stretch will slow you down due to 4L construction, but not bad.

From Narsinghpur, it is advised to take the Chhindwara route which is a good 2L stretch (approx 250 Kms).

Overall, facilities are not great in this stretch, you will have to plan your pit-stops. But doable.

3) Another route that you can consider is Jaipur - Ratlam - Dhule - Shirdi - Pune - Bangalore.

You can refer to the below threads for more information,
