Beyond Nashik this is a great road to Dhule, and beyond Dhule, till the MP border, the 4 laning is still happening in patches and you will need to slow down. Once you are across into MP, it is good all the way to Indore. Work is still on in the Indore bypass till almost Dewas. The Dewas bypass is 2 laned. Beyond this, the Dewas-Bhopal 4 laned highway is superb and is lovely to drive on.
Thank you.
Similar vehicles, similar concerns.
Yes, Pune Nasik is horrible these days and I once tried Kalamboli and it was even worse!

BTW, where did you stay overnight?
I am looking for decent hotel in Indore and Bhopal. You know any?

Thank you!

If you are worried about heavy traffic n NH50 from Pune to Nashik, then take the route via Ahmednagar & Aurangabad to Dhule.


Petrol pumps - nothing specific to recommend.
HVK sir, thank you.
OK, so all clear beyond Nasik? That's good to know.
How is the road from Aurangabad to Dhule? Can I pass safely without scraping the ground?

And again, from your vast experience, any decent, clean not so expesive places to stay (Indore and Bhopal)?

Thank you once again.

Yes, the roads are all fine including Aurangabad-Dhule-Indore.

Staying in Indore - lots of options, depending on your budget. Hotel Sreemaya is considered one of the better hotels.

I would suggest taking Pune - Nagar - Shirdi - Manmad - Malegaon -Dhule route.
Last week cousin of mine took this route took 12 hrs to reach Indore(in Wagon R) with around an hour lunch break. Bhopal would take another 3 hours from Indore.

Hotels in Bhopal -- Check in new bhopal area - Maharana Pratap Nagar has some decent ones.
