| | Kota To Pune via Indore or via Udaipur - Surat - Mumbai?
I have to travel fom Kota to Pune. I plan to do the whole trip in a single day. I can drive for 12 hours or 800kms myself, and have a driver for assistance. I prefer driving myself.
Which route should I opt for?
Kota-Baran-Jhalawar-Ujjain-Indore-Malegaon-Manmad-Dhule-Ahmednagar-Pune: Shortest route 1000kms, Kota to Jhalawar is a very bad patch that is why extra distance via Baran, Bombay-Agra Highway is no doubt really good, but is more of Trucker's highway and also no idea about rest of the roads
Kota-Chittorgarh-Udaipur-Godhra-Vadodara-Surat-Vapi-Valsad-Thane-Lonavla-Pune: Longest route 1178kms, Road is really good as read on many forums, but 200kms is a lot of distance and will cost atleast 2 hours more, but is expected not to be as isolated as Bom-Agra Highway.
If the travel time of 1st option is equal to the 2nd option owing to road quality etc, then I can take the 2nd route. I plan to leave Kota at 6 am, so will rrach Mumbai by 9 or 10pm, may avoid the office rush.
Time taken and Comfort of driving is of priority here.
