sanjeev- frm nasik,instead of going to nagpur,why dont u try alternate route ie nasik-bhusawal-burhanpur-khandwa-hoshangabad-jabalpur-bandhavgarh?? that way, u'll save atleast 80-90 kms and barring few stretches of abt 30-40 kms,road is in fairly good condition. A frnd of mine had gone by same route and he was pretty satisfied..i'm also planning to, in the near future!! Happy Driving!!
