Planning a trip from Darjeeling to Mumbai

Post by uttam.bhattacharjee » Tue Feb 13, 2018 10:45 am

Hey Guys

I am from Kolkata but planning a road trip from Darjeeling to Mumbai in the month of March. Can someone recommend the ideal stops on this journey?

I am driving a sedan - Maruti Ciaz and would like to go easy on the bad roads please! :)

Hey Uttam,

I have done the reverse but the stops will hold true none the less. Here goes:

Day 1: Gangtok - Darjeeling @getravelled , @rajiv_986185 Can you please update the road conditions here?
Day 2: Siliguri - Darbanga - Good Roads.
Day 3: Darbanga - Gorakhpur - Good Roads
Day 4: Gorakhpur - Kanpur
Day 5: Kanpur - Jhansi
Day 6: Jhansi - Indore (or you can take a halt at Bhopal and proceed the next day)
Day 7: Indore - Mumbai. If you had halted in Bhopal the previous night, take a night halt at Dhule in Maharashtra or even Nashik if you want to push it. Final day, you should be in Mumbai.

You can crunch this to a 5 day road trip or less, but not advisable. Most of the stretch is very good, and you shouldn't face any issue on your Maruti Ciaz
