Am toying with the idea of driving down to Corbett during the last week of Dec. Let's see. Maybe Pithoragarh - Binsar - Corbett - and back.

GD1418 - You seem to have some great experience about roads in this region. Wanted your advice about a road trip from Delhi-Jim Corbett-Joshimath-Lansdowne-Delhi. Can we do this over 7 Days & 6 nights around Christmas spending 2 nights at each location? Someone has indicated that we should not try to cover Jim Corbett to Joshimath in a single day. We plan to travel in an Innova & therefore your advice would be useful. Thanks in advance.

Delhi to Ramnagar/Jim Corbett is about 5 hour journey (250 kms). Suggest leave Delhi by 4 am so as to reach by 10 am.

A word of caution - this is north and winter sets in resulting in dense fog. Driving gets hampered. May take more time.

Ramnagr/Jim Corbett to Joshimath is doable in a day. I don't know about the current road conditions. It is 370 kms and would take about 8 hours. You have to watch the weather for snowfall etc.

The route would be - Ramnagr - Kaladhungi - Nainital - Almora - Baijnath - Karnaprayag - Chamoli - Joshimath.

Joshimath to Lansdowne is 300 odd kms and would take 6 hours and from Lansdowne to Delhi is 260 kms.

7 days in my opinion is cutting too fine as inclement wetaher conditions might hamper your travel and take more time.

And thanks for the compliment..

Thanks again for your inputs. I was out of town & then busy at work, hence the delay in writing back. Plan to arrive in Delhi next weekend & would use your recommended route for the travel planned.

Road between Nanital - Almora is in bad shape, esp. after Kachi Mandir

Jaxy - How long is this bad stretch? Would you recommend any other route, or a diversion which would avoid this stretch?

it is bad in patches till the Bridge which is 2 way for Almora & Mukteshwar.

there is 1 stretch where whole road has been washed away and part of the mountain has been cut & left without any tarmac being laid out.
Apart from that the road is bad but manageable.
