  • Leave 5th Sep @6am from Belgaum
  • Via Amboli , NH 17 - konkan route or NH4 via Pune
  • Reach Mumbai by Night
Plan 2 : Leave 3rd Sep @ 6 pm from Chennai
  • Halt @ B'Lore for Night
  • Leave 4th Sep @ 6 am from B'lore
  • via , Shimoga , Karwar
  • Halt @ Goa
  • Leave Goa on 5th Sep @ 6am

If reaching Mumbai faster is the objective then the route is very straight forward

Chennai - Bangalore - NH4 - Tumkur - Chitradurga - Davangere - Hubli - Belgaum - Kolhapur - Pune (Bypass) - Mumbai

Banglore to Mumbai is 14-15 hours average for a decent enough driver.

all other routes are longer and hence more expensive interms of cost and time.

If I were you, i will start on 3rd evening from Chennai, reach Tumkur and stay there. This will take care of the busy Chennai-BLR stretch, Bangalore traffic and bypass. If you leave at 5 PM from Chennai, you can reach Tumkur by 11 PM hopefully. You can start from Tumkur by 7 AM next day and reach Mumbai by evening 8 PM for sure.

If your intentions are to experience Jog falls & Goa, or rains at Amboli and drive to curvey roads of Konkan, then you can choose alternative routes.

Dont think of Konkan. What Star mentioned is the correct route.
About break, you can choose based on when you want to arrive in Mumbai.
