Default Mumbai-Ranthambore Drive Route query

Hi All,

I'm planning to drive down from Mumbai to Ranthambore, sometime end of this month. Needless to say, I'm confused on which route to take. I would prefer to complete this in 1 day - start early from Mumbai 5/6AM and reach late by 10PM. Any issues in driving at night via any of these routes?

Route I:
Google maps suggests via Nashik, Dhule, Indore.

Route II:
I think with the GQ it might be faster to drive via Gujarat and turn right in Rajasthan before hitting Jaipur - and possibly go via Tonk.

Has any one covered any of these routes before?

I saw quite a few travelogues of folks who have entered Rajasthan via Mumbai-Ahmedabad route but couldn't find any where people have gone directly from Mumbai to Ranthambore.

Is it advisable to take a night halt some-where. Please suggest a suitable place - maybe Ujjain on Route I.

Is it OK to start driving from early morning? What are the fog conditions like in Rajasthan?

Thanks in advance.

Hi,
In my opinion

Mumbai-Surat-(NH-08)Vadodara-(NE-1)Ahmedabad-(Nh-08)Udaipur(Nh-12)-Chittaurgarh-Kota-(Nh-12)Bundi -tonk(Nh-116)-Sawai Madhopur. should be a better option as Surat Vadodara has six lane highway and vadodara Ahmedabad expressway is also a breeze. Also you can maintain good speed on Ahmedabad-Udaipur-Chittaugarh section.Roads are good all the way.

Fog would be there on Vadodara Ahmedabad expressway.

However after bundi there is a state highway SH-29 to Indergarh via Lakheri & Khatgarh. After indergarh take a right onto SH-1 which will join NH-116 just before Sawai Madhopur. Condition of Road can be ascertained from locals.

The other option of Nashik -Dhule-Indore
i travelled on Dhule -Indore section twice in last 2 months and every time got stuck up in Jam near Sendhwa ghat. NH-3 widening is going on all the way. Dhamnod-Indore (80kms) is excellent 4 lane toll road. Infact after sendhwa 4 laning has been completed in patches.

Regards
Amit

I just came to mumbai from delhi via indore route. Its fantastic. You can reach udaipur easily. Best would be if you travel at night or late evening as there is no traffic at all on this route.
