I was trying to halt at Ahemedabad just so that I dont have to drive at night, but if it is safe road to travel with wife and a 7 year old kid then I can think of stretching myself a little more.
Dombivli-Mt.Abu/Udp can be easily done in a day.Leave earlier by 4-5am(rain permitting) so that you can maximize your daylight driving.If UDP,then take the SP Ring road and if Mt.Abu take the Mehsana road.

Friends, I plan to do Pune - Bangalore during diwali holidays. I plan to leave Pune around 5 in the morning.
Is the entire stretch do able in 12 hrs accounting for a total of 2 hrs stoppages enroute? I won't be crossing Bangalore as my destination is right on the tumkur road near jalahalli cross.

What are the good/prefered bfast- lunch breaks? I intend to reach belgaum between 9-10 and have bfast there. Is it doable, or is it better to stop somewhere before belgaum?

Any suggestions for lunch break?

You can have brunch at Belgaum at Sankam Residency, located below the flyover, on LHS of NH 4. Otherwise, you can break at Kamat Upachar at Ranebennur bypass [LHS] or at Chabbi before Hubli [RHS].

Sai Food Court, 30 km after Kolhapur towards Pune on RHS of NH 4.

If he is coming from Pune, isn't Sai 30 km "before" Kolhapur? Did you refer it as while driving to Pune?

Oops. All the locations are with reference to drive from Bangalore to Pune. For Pune to Bangalore, the ideal breakfast break could be at Sai Food Court, 30 km before Kolhapur and lunch break at Sankam Residency, Belgaum or Kamat Upachar at Chabbi or at Ranebennur bypass.

Contrary to the current trend, some toll remained the same as compared to the last year's.

Thankyou friends for the suggestions. I am back from my trip. Did only one stop for evening tea at Kamat Upchar just before Hubli bypass on the Pune-Bangalore leg. Had packed McDonald's burgers for lunch which we had in the car itself.

On the way back we stopped at Kamat just before reaching Ranebennur for lunch and again at Kaveri between Belgaum and Nipani for tea.

With an early morning start (~03:30AM) from Bangalore will it be possible to reach Mumbai on the same day?

Also, how long will it take from Mumbai - Ahmedabad ? I hope the road conditions in general ?

Read about a bad section south of Pune towards Satara and similarly a bad section due to bridge work near Bharuch due to bridge work.

I am planning to start driving from Ahmedabad to Bangalore at 6.00 AM with another colleague who can drive as well. What is the realistic distance I can cover in a Wagon-R in a day? Any Suggestions

I drove BLR-Pune a few weeks ago and with a 4.30AM start, I had reached the Pune-Mumbai bypass (Katraj Ghat entry point) around 5PM, including short breaks for lunch/fuel and rest stops. The Satara-Pune stretch isn't too bad, but slows you down due to evening traffic and multiple diversions.

If you're driving alone, it may be a bit of a stretch (but doable) to target Mumbai, more because of traffic in your final stretch than the distance itself. Account for all this while you plan.

P.S. Carrying food/snacks/drinks helps keep unnecessary stops to a minimum. It may not seem like much, but even 10 minute tea/drinks breaks add up over a long day.

Rajiv : Im not sure about the time/distance between Mumbai-Ahmedabad.

Other than that -
Entry to Express Way at Panvel to Exit at Pune : 90 mins
Drive thru the Pune By-pass till Katraj - 60 mins
Katraj - Pune, NTB toll exit /NICE Road entry - 11 hours ( with one break in between )

I recently did Bangalore-Pune and I could cover this home to home, 928 KM's in 10 hours and 30 mins.

There are more details about Bangalore-Mumbai road route/eateries etc in a separate and exhaustive thread, updated quite often. So, if you get details around A'bad-Panvel, you are all set.

Default re: Bangalore - Pune - Ahmedabad : Route Queries

So I did a Solo drive from Bangalore to Ahmedabad & back over the weekend that passed. Both the legs were done in one shot with ample breaks for food and Fuel.

Here are the details:

13th Feb, 2015
Bangalore-Pune-Thane-Ahmedabad: 0430 Hours to 0030 Hours
1530 Kms, 20 Hours
  • Had breakfast at Kamat, Ranebennur at 0730 Hours
  • Fuel break at BPCL COCO, Nippani around 11:00 Hours
  • Had Lunch at Vittal Kamat, Karad (Umbraj) at 1222 Hours
  • Entered Pune bypass at 14:30 Hours
  • Stopped for Tea on Pune Bypass near Chandni Chowk around 1445 Hours
  • Crossed Thane and stopped for another break at Express Inn, Ghodbunder at 17:30
  • Fuel Break close to Talasari after Charoti Toll Plaza
  • Dinner 60 kms before Surat around 2100 hours
  • Reached SP Ring Road at 000 Hours
  • Reached Gandhinagar at 0030 Hours

16th Feb, 2015
Gandhinagar-Thane-Pune – Bangalore: 1215 Hours to 1030 Hours
1510 Kms, 22 Hours
  • Lunch Break around 1500 Hours after Ankleshwar
  • Tea Break near Manor around 1900 Hours
  • Crossed Thane at 2030 Hours
  • Refilled at Expressway Food Court at 2200 Hours
  • Entered Pune Bypass at 2315 Hours
  • Refilled at Davanagere at 0700 Hours
  • Stopped for Breakfast at Tumkur 0900 Hours
  • Reached home at 1026 Hours

Update on Road Conditions:
  • Bangalore-Pune-Mumbai remains the same with the only change being 3 diversions between Belgaum and Kolhapur to make way for relaying of surface and constructing a bridge after Belgaum
  • 3 Thane-Surat-Bharuch-Ankleshwar-Baroda-Ahmedabad is again good barring 3 diversions between Ghodbunder and Manor
  • To beat the current mess on Narmada Bridge, we wisely took the Golden Bridge option both ways. We crossed this at 23 Hours onward and 1430 on Return.
  • The Khargar Toll (Sion-Panvel) too was smooth due to odd day/time (Friday for Onward and Monday for Return)

Some Statistics and Pictures:
  • Total Round Trip distance including local commute – 3096 Kms
  • Cumulative Fuel efficiency for the whole drive – 17.9 KMPL (as per MID)
  • Total passengers – 4 Including myself for Onward and 2 on Return

Total Average FE as per MID:

Total Round Trip as per MID:
Bangalore - Pune - Ahmedabad : Route Queries-20150218_121424.jpg

Total Return Trip distance as per MID:

Great solo driving, but did you not feel sleepy after the lunch and dinner?
I prefer the HV Kumar way with in car snacks and the great Gujarati theplas. Snack lightly during the trip, may be every three to four hours. Keeps drowsiness away.
