Default Re: Kumbharli Ghat - A 1000 kms Monsoon Drive

On a bike, do the mumbai goa stretch on nh17 to the maximum extent. nh4 is boring and easier in a car, but for a bike the overtaking challenges on roads with no median strip are much less than in a car. nh17 is a lot more scenic and interesting to make up for that.
Avoid night riding, as on any other Indian highway.

To get an experience of biking in the hills, I would suggest going up to Mahabaleshwar from nh17, where you go from sea level to a hill station in one long ghat and come down back to the coast via many options - Tilari is one that would be very interesting, although it will call for a long boring drive on nh4 from just before Satara to Belgaum.
