Default To Kanha National Park from Gurgaon

Hi All,
A couple of friends and I are planning to go down to the Kanha National Park for some new year fun! I am in a bit of a fix about the route though.

Google Maps suggests the following:
Gurgaon - Agra - Gwalior - Jhansi - Chhatarpur - Damoh - Jabalpur - Kanha

I know the road upto Gwalior (300 kms) and am aware that it can be done in about 6 hours. What I do not know is how the roads fare after Gwalior. The rest of the distance is about 650 kms and it entirely lies in MP - about whose roads I haven't heard anything charitable from anyone

If I assume a measly average 0f 40 km/h for the Gwalior - Kanha stretch, then it would take about 16 hours. Add to that 6 hours upto Gwalior and we are looking at 22 hours of drive!

I was wondering is anyone has done this route or part of this route and probably give me an estimate as to how much time really the journey might take. The thing is owing to time constraints, we do not want to break the journey. Hence, the query.

Thanks a lot!

Hi there,

I've been on the Gwalior - Jhansi - Sagar (NH26) in early March this year, there has been a 4 lane happening till Sagar (MP), but the way the work seems going should take more than a year, hence lot of diversions on this road, it's like you get on to one of the 4 lane road for 3/4 kms and again diversion, gravel road and then hit the 4 lane diversion and so forth, this was very happening on this route, (Gwalior to Jhansi can be done at 2 1/2 -3 hours as per the latest road situation which is close to 100 kms).

Within the Routes / Travel Queries sub-form, there are a couple of threads from people who've done a part of the stretch you're trying to cover. For instance, do read the following two posts which have useful info on the Gwalior-Chhatarpur stretch:

http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/travel...ml#post1141957 (Delhi - Khajuraho - Orchha - Delhi)
http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/travel...ml#post1143459 (Delhi - Khajuraho - Orchha - Delhi)

I am going on a Del-Gwalior-Guna-Indore-Mumbai trip starting 23rd Oct and have been reading up on road conditions. What I've found so far is...
- road gets really bad around Datia on NH75 between Gwalior and Jhansi
- around Morena (Chambal area) on the Dholpur-Gwalior stretch of NH3, its dodgy to even offer help, esp. after sun-down. Roads are good on this stretch but hardly any facilities. So, better to re-fuel in Agra.

Will let you know my first-hand experience once I am back from my trip

Default Re: To Kanha National Park from Gurgaon

I'm planning a trip to Bandhavgarh, Kanha & Pench - http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/route-...h-gurgaon.html

Stumbled onto this thread. Have you guys written your travelogues? If yes, then point me to the link and if not then do write and recount your experience. It will be of help to others and specially to me...
