Road Trip- PROLOGUE – Delhi- Jaipur- Ahmedabad- Mumbai- Goa- Tarkarli- Mumbai- Udaipur- Delhi

Hey all

I would be starting my road trip tomorrow and broadly the planned night stays for the trip are as follows

Delhi- Jaipur- Ahmedabad- Mumbai- Goa- Tarkarli- Mumbai- Udaipur- Delhi

I’ve made confirmed booking at the following places

Hotel Amer View, Jaipur

Karnavati Club, Ahmedabad

Ramada Carvela Beach Resort, Varca, South Goa

In Tarkarli I would be scouting for a Hotel or a guest house when I get there and same would be for Udaipur.

I would sincerely like to thank HV Kumar of HV Kumar – Fan, Forum & Message Board and all the members of the above FB Group who have been really helpful in providing me the detailed road book and help me plan this adventure right from the start. Thanks a lot sir(s).

As always I would be driving my Toyota Landcruiser on this trip and by the looks of it the total trip would work out to be over 4200 Kms. I plan to be back by the 27th or 28th of March 2012. Many people may ask why Goa and some of them may even ask why by road especially when air tickets are available little over of what I may spend on fuel costs. Well I’ve always been travelling by air since long and a package deal just doesn’t cut for me anymore and I feel that the adventure is missing in such a thing. Additionally I feel that if someone wants to see the real India, it can only be done when we are on ground. I am not against air travel but I feel that its more fun like this. Last year I did Delhi- Sasan Gir- Diu- Delhi and enjoyed every bit of it. Here’s the link to that https://harjeevchadha.wordpress.com/2011/11/25/delhi-ahmedabad-sasan-gir-diu-udaipur-delhi-road-trip-summary/


The following is just a broad guide to the route that I plan to take and it may differ from the actual route, especially the in/ and out of Mumbai and from Goa- Tarkarli- Mumbai from the route that’s been depicted in the following link. This link is just to give a broad overview on the route. Once I’ve completed the trip, I would be sharing the triplogs and GPX tracks for the entire trip.

    super like this…i just did one (small) road trip in my new (restored) MM 550. I too share your thought that road trips are the best way to understand this country. Bon Voyage sir 🙂
