Planning a trip next month from Daman to Kerala.

Would like to do a leisure trip with breaks in between and visiting some places en route.

One route came to mind is via Mumbai (Thane), Mumbai-Pune Express way, Satara, Kolhapur, Belgaum, Hubli, Chitradurga, Bangalore, Hosur, Salem, Coimbatore, Palakkad.

With 2 halts/night stays in between - Belgaum and Bangalore.

Request fellow members to share information about the places of visit and hotels to stay and good Restaurants en route.

Also I need a detailed guidance on how to reach Mumbai-Pune Expressway from Godhbunder/Fountain NH8 junction.

When i drove down recently from pune i went to up bangalore then mysore-> then via bandipur to palakkad..

As for thane is concerned u can take the thane belapur road tht comes up straight to express way or come via mumbra(there might be some bad patches here and truck traffic)

if u want to escape all traffic nearly , pass by thane and mulund and take the airoli bridge back to thane belapur road

Thanks Iron rock.

Read somewhere that Pune-Bangalore road is being 6 lined in Maharashtra side.

Can somebody help with the info on progress of the work, blockades if any and traffic jams and present road condition.

@autosafari,

Even Chennai - Banglore road is also being 6 lined, but they are extending either side of the roads.. so there are no blocks on the existing road..

SO I hope Pune-Bangalore road extension will be same like Chennai - Banglore road extension work.

Happy & Safe Journey [:)]

this road is predominantly good, just be very aware of traffic coming the ulta way - i have had some instances when i was cruising at 120 and then u see a tractor coming bang opp with 3 sugarcane trailors that too in the overtaking lane!!

forgot to mention , at belgaum u can try hotel sankam residency, good food and decent accomodation + its very close the highway so u dont have to take a long detour inwards, we stayed here while returning.
