There are lots of reviews available and google suggest solapur-Bijapur route is shorter. However I would like to know 1) Which route is better via Kolhapur or Solapur? 2) How are the road conditions from Hubli to hospet and Solapur to Bijapur? 2) How long will it take travel from Pune - Hampi? I don't prefer to drive in dark, so it possible to cover in a day if I start at 5 a.m. 3) Also do we have bypass in Belgavi, Hubli or we need to cross the city? 4) Any good food junctions you suggest?
