any better route options please advice.
Kindly note, my mode of transportation is my Maruti Ritz.
Kindly also advice of some budget hotels en-route where I can stay overnight.
The default route. Road conditions remains good mostly. You may want to halt for the night at Hosur, if you can.
Mumbai - Pune: Nothing to worry
Pune - Kolhapur: Usual issues of diversions
Kolhapur - Bangalore outskirts: Good roads
Bangalore bypass: Option 1 is NICE Road to Electronic City (or) Option 2 Dabaspete - Doddaballapura - Devanahalli - Hoskote - Bagalur - Hosur.
Hosur - Coimbatore: Good roads
Coimbatore - Palakkad : Heard about pot holes / top layer coming off near Walayar (not sure)
Palakkad - Alappuzha: I am unaware of the conditions / traffic patterns. Hope some of the members can throw light here.
Ritz shouldn't pose any issues at all. Since I stay in Bangalore never felt the need to find stays in Hosur. Shouldn't be hard to find a budget hotel near the highway.
Ideal pitstops for fuel in (1) Belgaum / Dharwad / Hubli (2) Bangalore/Hosur.
