    This is the itinerary that i am planning to follow. Any hotel and specific route suggestions are welcome.

    Day 1 - Delhi to Udaipur with night halt at Udaipur.

    Day 2 - Udaipur to Bharuch with night stay at Bharuch

    Day 3 - Bharuch to Lonavala with night stay at lonavala

    Day 4 - Lonavala to Goa(will it be comfortable to take this route at a stretch? Or should i halt somewhere in between.)

    I wl suggest thane pune belgaum dharwad nice road with median
    Dharwad yellapur ankola superb single road (slightly bumpy in between dharwad kalghatgi)
    Ankola-kundapur with lot of diversions cover in day time
    Kundapur udupi mangalore again good road.
    If u want to go via goa then
    Pune -kolhapur -nippani -amboli-sawantwadi-mapusa/panjim.
    Mapusa/panjim -karwar-Ankola-mangalore.

    Thanks for the help uturn :)

    Could you also confirm if Lonavala to Panjim is driveable in 1 day. How many hours will it take. Or should i halt somewhere in between.

    And how is the road condition if i take lonavala - pune-satara -kolhapur - nipani - amboli - panjim road.

    And can i do Panjim to Mangalore in a single day. How is the road condition

    Thanks :)

    Yss very much possible.
    Lonavala-pune excellent e.way
    Pune -satara almost 6laned highway.
    Satara-kolhapur -Nippani excellent road.
    Once you climb nippani ghat section on the right hand you wl see hotel kaveri/goa ves board take a right turn (no signage ).
    Nippani -Amboli single road.
    Amboli-sawantwadi(go inside city)-mapusa again good road.
    Start at earliest(7/8am) from lonavala plenty of eateries on the way. Have lunch near nippani and head towards Amboli.you can easily do it before eve.
    It's safe 24×7.
    Goa-Mangalore also doable only lot of diversions due road widening.
    Very much scenic enjoy marvanthe beach along.
    While return you can do via ankola-belgaum.

    Vinit,
    Have you done your scheduled road trip?
    Have you reached back to Delhi from Mangalore? If you are still in Manipal / Mangalore, please try to Visit Pabba's or Ideal Iceream Parlour in Mangalore.
    Please share your road experience.

    Hi Deepam,

    Yes i have reached manipal and would surely visit the place you suggested sometime on the weekend.

    The roads are really good all the way from delhi to mangalore apart from some stretches of the ghat section and the last few kms of goa to manipal section before the NH begins. There are a lot of road diversions and the work is still in progress. I stuck to the itinerary and the route mentioned in the above comments. Overall the entire road trip was an amazing experience and i strongly recommend people to drive down from delhi rather than using alternate source of transport, if they have time , because its totally worth it.
