Looking at Google Maps, the shortest route it gives me is Indore - Mhow - Sendhwa - Shirpur - Malegaon (via NH3) - Manmad - Kopargaon - Sangamner - Alephata - Narayangaon - Rajgurunagar - Chakan - Pune. I understand that part of this route after leaving Malegaon is messy because of heavy traffic.

The alternative I'm presented with is a slightly longish route (about 40kms more), Indore - Burhanpur - Jamner - Sillod - Aurangabad - Waluj - Ahmednagar - Ranjangaon - Pune.

I've seen another option mentioned on this thread that goes via Shirdi - Rahuri. Not absolutely certain what route to take. I'm travelling with my wife and 3-year old, so safety and good roads are top priority.
Please stick to the Google Maps route. Its the best bet and yes before and after Shirdi it gets messy for a 20 kms but overall comfortable, safe and fast with good options enroute for utilities and food. The other options are all 2-laned roads with heavy traffic with exception of Jamner route, which is very much deserted in btn parts.

Even the hard-core Pune-Nashik highway lover will not take the NH50 between Pune & Sangamaner which is one of the most congested roads to drive in. Instead, I always recommend the route Kopargaon-Shirdi-Rahuri-Ahmednagar-Pune, which is fast & good. Now you can even bypass Ahmednagar when coming from Shirdi.

Please avoid Sangamaner-Pune

There is a small stretch of a few Kms near Kopargaon, before Shirdi which is terrible and full of large craters. It was so when I travelled last December. I remember someone mentioning a detour in one of these threads. Do check it out.

HVK,

Is this the bypass you were referring to?

Route Link

Or is there a new one that has come up?

Yes, that saves the trouble of wading through Ahmednagar town

Thanks. Had driven through last year. Since you mentioned, I just thought if there is any new one that has come up.

Yes this saves a lot. On the Pune-Nagar road there is clear sign at this exit stating Shirdi.

Will be leaving for Pune in a day or two.

What route is the best suggested for Indore-Pune.

Also, while coming back (on 23rd) would like to visit Shirdi too.
Suggestions for this route?

Suggestions for this route?


Route 1
Indore - dhule - nashik - pune
Indore - dhule -> awesome roads , four lane throughout , sparse traffic .
Dhule - nashik -> via narayangaon , four lane good roads with moderate traffic
Nashik -pune -> road condition is good .. Two lane roads .. Heavy traffic .. Last 50 kms four lane .

Route 2
Indore - dhule - malegaon - shirdi - ahmednagar - pune

Indore - dhule - malegaon -> great 4 lane roads .. Sparse traffic , can do 3 digit speeds .
Malegaon - shirdi -> two lane road , sparse traffic .. Last 10-15 kms while approaching shirdi is bad roads with heavy traffic
Shirdi - ahmednagar -> 10-15 kms bad roads with heavy traffic while leaving shirdi .. Rmaining 4 lane loads with moderate traffic .. Can do 90-100 .. May get struck in ahmednagar due to bottleneck.
Ahmednagar - pune -> superb 4 lane . Moderate traffic .

You can take the either route . People will suggest you to take the shirdi route . I have done both and I like both the routes .. You can also try both of them on your onward and return journey . Start timing from Indore is crucial .. If you start at 4 am from Indore , you can easily be at pune by 2 pm with 2-3 food and fuel stops ..

Its the same option. Indore-Mhow-Dhule-Malegaon-Shirdi-Nagar-Pune.

Roads around shirdi (30-40km circle) are not that great.

Avoid Pune-Nashik NH50. Too congested.
Take Pune-Ahmednagar-Shirdi-Kopargaon-Manmad-Malegaon-Dhule. Road rough around Shirdi, but rest OK.
Rest of the route is outstanding 4-laned road

Question re: Pune - Indore : Route Queries

Guys,

I am planning a 4-nights trip by road to Indore (my first trip ever to the city). Will base my stay in Indore (3-nights) and do day excursions to the nearby places. 4th night I have kept as float and can stay en-route back to Pune, depending on the itinerary.

I look forward to visit following places:
  1. Ujjain,
  2. Patalpani,
  3. Maheshwar
  4. Omkareshwar,
  5. Mandu,
  6. Any other place suggested?
Can you help me fix the route/itinerary for this and how can I plan these excursions? I will be driving Safari and likely hire local cabs/autos for local sight seeing and excursions to congested areas.

tia,
-BJ

Malegaon-dhule-indore is beautiful 4 lane road , so no issues it is stright forward with zero turns only question , from pune to Malegaon-dhule
First option is
Pune-Nagar-shirdi-rahata-manmad-malegaon , this is normal route everybody follows
80%-85% road is good , only few patches near shirdi-rahata are bad.
Till Nagar no issues, nagar-shirdi also good , shirdi-manmad - some bad stretch -
Manmad-malegaon - not bad, easily doable.

second option
Pune-narayangaon-sangamener-nasik-malegaon
This is longer and till Nasik it is single lane with 4-5 ghats sections but no toll on this road.

Third option
Pune-panvel-shil phata-kalyan-mumbra bypass-igatpuri-nasik-malegaon-dhule
This is some 100 km longer but beautiful road throughout till nasik-malegaon
Most costly route as you need to pay heavy toll on this , express way till panvel and then again Thane-nasik toll.

so better option is first one which everyone means all tours/travel operator follows
pune-nagar-shirdi-mamad-malegaon-dhule-shirpur-indore

all 4 lane with moderate toll and good road
i doubt if it is feasible to do it in one day , better to halt at Dhule and start next morning from Dhule to Indore.
