Default Driving from Pune to Surat/Saputara: A good idea?

Hi folks,

I'm thinking of driving from Pune to Saputara or Surat alone. Do you folks think its a good idea? Could you please give me suggestions/tips or warnings that I must pay heed to? I would also be grateful if someone could tell me the best route that I could follow including details about which sections are tricky, easy, fast, rough etc. I'm a relatively new driver so I need to take care of these things.

Cheers,
-Ganesh

Hi Ganesh, Driving alone?? From your above post I think you are planning to go to Surat. Simple Take the Mumbai-Pune E-way, At Vashi continue towards Thane and ask for the Ghodbundar Rd. This will then lead you to the NH8 Vapi -Surat- Ahmdavad Hway.
I am sorry I have no Idea where Saputara is. If you are looking for SATPURA wildlife scantuary then thats a different direction. Thats in MP Hoshangabad dist.

Saputara is well worth a visit, esp just during/post rains.

Hi Ganesh, I brushed up my Geography (PLACES& ROADS) thanks to my meeting yesterday with " The WALKING TALKING ENCYCLOPEDIA OF INDIAN ROADS MR HV KUMAR" He mentioned that Saputara is a small hill station off the NH8. If you need more details pls write to him.
