Wink Route query for driving into Bombay from Nasik

Have never driven into Bombay before so need route info for getting into the city and reaching Hotel Sahil which is opposite mumbai central mall. Will be driving down from Indore taking NH 17. On a few occasions earlier That I've travelled by road It's been with someone else at the wheel and me sleeping into town. But those trips have been through Bhiwandi as a cousin owns a petrol bunk there. But if possible would like to avoid Bhiwandi altogether.

Also what is the current state of kasara ghat ?? 'coz I've heard stories of 10 hr plus jams at the kasara stretch. Would it make more sense to drive Nasik-Pune-mumbai ?? But driving via pune would entail a 200+ kms detour.

It is NH3 from Indore to Bombay via Mhow, Damnod, SEndhwa, Shirpur, Dhulia, Malegaon, Pimpalgaon, Nasik, Igatpuri, Kasara. Bhiwandi is bypassed, so you do not have to worry.

Traffic jams happen in Kasara Ghat only if there is an accident. Most of the Nasik-Bombay road is now 4-laned, although the ghat section is still not (work in progress).

You can come directly on teh same road till you reach Bycullah from where it is a short distance to Hotel Sahil in Bombay Central.

Thanks hvkumar. I guess will have to have a word with some bus operators on the day of travel to know status of kasara ghat.
