    I am planning a two-week long family trip Bangalore-Nagpur-Agra-Delhi-Jaipur-Udaipur-MountAbu-Bhavnagar-Palitana-Pune-Bangalore in my Fiat Linea during November 2010. Myself and my son will do the driving part.

    Tentative schedule:

    Day 1 - Bangalore to Nagpur and halt

    Day 2 - Nagpur to Agra and halt

    Day 3 - Taj Mahal/Agra Fort

    Day 4 - Agra to Delhi and halt

    Day 5 - Delhi

    Day 6 - Delhi

    Day 7 - Delhi to Jaipur and halt

    Day 8 - Jaipur-Udaipur-Mount Abu & halt

    Day 9 - Mount Abu/Dilwara temple & halt

    Day 10 - Mount Abu to Bhavnagar/Palitana and halt

    Day 11 - Palitana

    Day 12 - Palitana to Pune & halt

    Day 13 - Pune to Bangalore

    The schedule is hectic. If necessary, I may extend by a day or two or cut short the places depending upon the circumstances.

    Please help me with all the details that you have regarding the latest condition of the road, best route to be followed for a low GC sedan, hotels/eateries/lodgings, important spots that should not be missed in these places, etc. I shall reserve for our accommodation at Ginger Hotels, New Delhi [Vivek Vihar] and Pune Wakad. For the remaining places, kindly suggest good places for stay/eating [vegetarian].

    That's pretty hectic schedule Ravi. Drive safe. Can't advise you on road conditions etc... on the above route though.

    Yes, Kapil. I know the schedule is very hectic. This is my wish-list. But, as I said, we will drop some places to suit our timing.

    I will check with whatever sources I know.

    My suggestion to you will be to ask HVKumar on TBHP. He is a Human GPS !!

    And one more thing : I look forward to catching up with you when you are in Pune :)

    Quite an exhaustive schedule, Ravi. But I would suggest to go ahead with it, you'll enjoy it ::T Gujarat Road is excellent (THough I've not visited Gujarat in last 7-8 months)

    Thanks Amit. I am thinking of extending our trip by three more days and changing the route via NH 4, avoiding MP altogether as I am advised about the sorry state of road conditions there. I shall finalise the itinerary in a few days. I am getting good reports about road conditions in Gujarat and Rajasthan. :)

    Yeah. MP roads are usually pathetic. Even Rajasthan roads were not so good but I have not been to Rajasthan since long. You'll love the Gujarat Roads for sure.

    I understand that Bangalore-Mumbai-Jaipur-Delhi is 4-laned all the way with the most of the roads in good condition and good facilities for overnight stay and food although longer by 500 km as compared to Bangalore-Nagpur-Delhi with only half the distance 4-laned and of the remaining 2-laned stretches most of them are in pathetic condition in MP/UP with poor roadside facilities. So, I have decided to go by Bangalore-Mumbai-Delhi avoiding Nagpur route altogether. My itinerary is under thorough revision.
