The distance between Roha and Belgavi is 460 kms and the mid-point is Satara.
From Roha to reach Satara - you will have to come by Mahabaleshwar. That is not a bad road. Ghat road but nothing to worry about. Just go slow (to avoid motion sickness) and you will not have any trouble. I did this stretch in December 2015 and no issues whatsoever.

I had taken - Raigad - Pholadpur - Pratagarh - Mahabaleswar - Medha - Satara and then Kolhapur - Belgaum - Bangalore.

Early morning 5am start from Roha should be good - not much to worry about traffic or heat.

Thanks, but I would still prefer getting on the NH4 as early as possible.

I will start from Mumbai by 6 am and reach Roha by 10 am, halt for 3-4 hours and then start for Satara.

After 3 years, its time for Goa again during summers. Wonder why my plans always materialize during the dry months. Planning the usual Satara - kolhapur - Belgaum - Chorla route into Goa. I usually follow this road, but the last time I was on this route, the mining trucks had created havoc with the roads. Reading the earlier posts, it seems the roads are in a far better condition than they were 3 years back. If that is the case, it will be a joy to travel once again on the beautiful roads leading to Goa.

Hi All,

Would anyone be able to tell me what the current total for the tolls would be? I'm probably driving next week, from Mumbai, with an over night stop in Pune. Thank you!

Apologies, from Pune (after the expressway) until Goa. And yes, the amount which burns a hole in the pocket

Few months back, I have been to Goa. While going, I took Pune - Satara - kolhapur - Belgaum - Chorla route. This is very good road but overtaking is difficult and you have 1-2 more tolls to pay. Also, we lost in Beagaum to find the Chorla route and wasted 30 minutes despite having Google Map.

While coming back, I took goa - sawantwadi - amboli - nippani route. Roads are good and overtaking is easier as compare to Chorla route. I also find this route faster.

Hello Sir, Below are toll charges,

Khedshivapur Rs.80/-
Before Satara Rs.55/-
Taswade (Before Karad) Rs.70/-
Kini (Before Kolhapur) Rs.70/-
Kognoli (After Kagal) Rs.35/-
Hattargi Rs.15/- (if you decide to drive via Belgaum)
Goa Entry Rs.250/-

These all are one way charges.
There would not be any charges while leaving Goa.

Default Re: Mumbai - Pune - Kolhapur - Goa : Route Queries

Hey Guys, am planning for a Summer Goa Trip in the 22 - 26 May Week for 4 or 5 Nights with my Family. Main motive is to take a much needed break and just relax at the Hotel and Beach. Planning for South Goa since we are not too much Party People and enjoy peaceful and calm atmosphere. Getting pretty good Hotel Deals.

Had some queries:

1) Is South Goa better for my requirements or should i go North ?
2) Most important is weather. Appreciate some help from local Goan Bhpians. I know it will be Hot, which is fine but how hot and humid ? Any chance of rains at that time ?
3) Planning to stay near Benaulim Beach this time ? Good place in Goa to stay ? Mostly we will lazing around in the Hotel Pool and going to the Beach for a Dip and Stroll.
4) What about the Beach Shacks ? Would they be open in May end time ?
5) A few years ago, i had taken the Chorla Ghat Route and it was good. Is the Nippani - Amboli - Sawantwadi route more better and preferred route now ?

Appreciate any responses.
Thanks Guys.

It will be very hot and humid, like Mumbai, unless the monsoon arrives early. No one can predict that reliably just now.
For what you are planning to do, the place that gets you the best deal for the required quality level is the best, not much to choose otherwise between the different parts of the state. Candolim in North is also quite good as is Benaulim.
Beach shacks are open till the monsoon begins in earnest.

The monsoon is expected to begin in Kerala by may2nd as per the headlines in the local dailies in Kerala.heavy rains in parts of Kerala last night as well.Predictions are for an extended monsoon-at the end of the day Predictions are just thatbut then Goa is lovely in the rains too with sheets of rain coming in from the Arabian sea every few minutes.

Had some queries:

1) Is South Goa better for my requirements or should i go North ?
If your looking for a lazy/relaxing holiday then south Goa is prefered over the north.North will be more crowded.

2) Most important is weather. Appreciate some help from local Goan Bhpians. I know it will be Hot, which is fine but how hot and humid ? Any chance of rains at that time ?
I cannot predict the rains but going by the current weather pattern,its going to be really hot n humid! Also there are chances of pre monsoon showers towards the last week of may so overcast conditions may reduce the severity of the heat,though it will be still humid. Dont forget your sunscreen

3) Planning to stay near Benaulim Beach this time ? Good place in Goa to stay ? Mostly we will lazing around in the Hotel Pool and going to the Beach for a Dip and Stroll.
The whole of south Goa has resorts dotting the coastline. Benaulim is a good place to stay.Has good shacks and the beach is not too crowded.Plus nearby there are other not so famous but cleaner and less crowded beaches.

4) What about the Beach Shacks ? Would they be open in May end time ?
Yes, they are open till the first week of June or depending on the severity of the pre monsoons., but you shouldn't worry since your stay ends by 26.

5) A few years ago, i had taken the Chorla Ghat Route and it was good. Is the Nippani - Amboli - Sawantwadi route more better and preferred route now ?
I haven't had any experience on this route but the chorla-belgaum route tends to get a little slower with traffic in belgaum.


Hope you have a wonderful and relaxing stay in Goa.

Just adding to the above.. The nippani route is what I normally take. Easier if coming from from Bombay. Roads were good right till north Goa.. But people do speed on the ghats. Be careful about that. And lunch break at sawantwadi is always yummy.
