My destination is very close to Taj Mahal. I plan to continue on NH11 via Bharatpur > Fatehpur Sikri and reach right upto the outskirts of Agra. Is this the best route?
You should take NH-8 upto Jaipur and than bypass onto NH-11 to Agra. Do not take SH 2, which starts much before Jaipur.

Yes you should take route via Fatehpur Sikri even though its a bit long but better road.

Remember to turn right before entering Agra to avoid traffic. But again its a longer route and if it's 9 PM in night, please take the route through the city only.

I have made a slight change in my itinerary:
1) I will take NE1 for Baroda - Ahmedabad and then continue on NH8 upto Udaipur (i.e. no bypassing via Godhra)

2) I will start from Umbergaon in Gujarat which is about 150km north of Mumbai and about 17km off NH8. This will save me some 150km and atleast 2 hours. Plan to leave 4:30am

With the above in mind I feed that I can cross Chittorgarh and move further north. Any recommendations about safe places to stay overnight on this route?

Bhilwara is a good place to stay after Chittorgarh. We stayed at Hotel Radiance in 2012. The hotel was new and good at that time. Easily accessible from the highway.

Next option would be Kishangarh I guess, which will be 2 hrs from Bhilwara.

You can stay at Hotel Meera near railway station in Chittorgarh. Its located on wide main road and have ample of secure parking space. They serve good food as well.

In case you do not wish to enter city and like to stay on GQ itself, you may choose Chitrakoot Resort on NH-76, located on your left just before you climb on interchange flyover towards Bhilwara/Jaipur.

Did Bombay-Agra and back in first half of Nov. The roads were fun. Also, since I travelled on the Diwali days, traffic was quite low.

I took NH8 upto Udaipur and then turned on to NH76+NH79 via Chitrorgah-Bhilwara upto Krishangangarh where I joined NH8 again utpo Jaipur.

On NH79 I came across many bad patches of broken roads. Also, facilities on this road are very limited. In comparison to this, NH8 was super smooth with ample facilities. Can anyone comment on the current status of NH8 between Udaipur and Ajmer. Is it worth to take NH79 and bypass NH8 upto Krishangarh?

To avoid the Chittorgarh-Bhilwara-kishangarh section, one can take the Chittogarh-Jahazpur-Deoli-Tonk-Lalsot and join NH 11 at Dausa. Route link
Chittorgarh-Ladpura (NH 76) - 4 lane highway.
Right turn after Mandalgarh-Deoli - 2 lane state highway (tolled)
Deoli - Tonk-Chaksu - (NH12) 4 laned highway. (tolled)
NH12-Lalsot-Dausa (NH 11A) - 2 lane highway.

Yes, the said route is equally good option, plus it allows you to visit Sawai Madhopur / Ranthambore as well.

For people visiting Delhi, NH-8 can be avoided all the way up to Gurgaon or Dharuhera by taking Dausa- Alwar- Dharuhera route.
Alwar Dharuhera is a 4 laned toll road.

I have taken this route, Option 2: Udaipur - Chittorgarh-Bhilwara-Kishangarh-Jaipur-Agra. Its a was good, except one or two stretches which were uneven.(April, 2017).

Thanks Arun - I had taken the same route back in 2015 during my ride to Ladakh as was warned against taking Ajmer route then due to it being in worse condition then the latter.

Will stick to same route this time as well.
