Great hearing your road trip stories! How easy is it to take a road trip for someone who's new to India? Keeping in mind traffic rules..
On Saturday had a road trip to Pune from Mumbai...on Pune -Mumbai expressway,...lonavala,khandala...enjoyed car drive
@VaisakhiMishra I did the road trip and it was magnificent! Just had a week but there couldn't have been a better way to ring in a new year. Drove through the coast and surprisingly Goa was not such a highlight! Some other tiny beaches along the way stunned me. Thank you!
@VaisakhiMishra - Thank yous so much! This is very useful, really appreciate. I think I will take the coastal route as well. But it's good to know that there are many options to detour even if one takes the madurai route!
@Pankaj M - Hi! though I haven't done a road trip from Mumbai to Trivandrum I know a friend who had done it 6 years back. There are 2 ways Bombay-Bangalore-Madurai-Trivandrum (Mostly highway and old towns) or BOmbay-Goa-Gokarna-Mangalore-Kerala(Semi Coastal). If you take the highway path, try and visit Hampi, Madurai, Salem and Kancheepuram which are small detours on that road otherwise the semi coastal track has amazing stop points is scenic almost throughout the journey. He had taken the semi coastal path and had halted at Mangalore Goa Gokarna and Bangalore due to which the trip took him 13 days on bike. But the timeline totally depends an how much halt you want to take. Also the roads get pretty bad in certain patches and the highway past Mangalore has some serious harking issues right till Trivandrum....Hope this helps. :)
Hello, I am planning a road trip (self drive) with some friends from Mumbai to Trivandrum. Any tips? How many days should we factor for a comfortable drive? Any mandatory stops that we should not miss?
I plan to go on a road trip between 10th Nov to 15th Nov 2015 covering Ahmedabad to neighboring place(s).
@Saurabh agree! bike trip has its own charm :) Though I can only do short distances on a bike somehow..
Was Thinking of a Bike trip... u know u can feel the Air.... Stop on small tapris for tea & Snacks .... :)
Chandigarh - Manali Highway (NH 21) - The foodies and the ones in love with their cameras shall absolutely fall in love with this route.
@Imroze.. Mumbai to Goa drive is amazing.. You can either take the highway or go through ghatis with lotta small villages on the way.. Should do it once..
Agree! Though there are many many nice highways for long drives. The charm of a Mumbai- Goa roadtrip with friends is unmatchable :)
