Mumbai in Maharashtra
Although you must have travelled by now. Putting this info here for the benefit of other readers.
The route is simple and straight till Ahmedabad.
After Ahmedabad you need to take NH-8C till Palanpur
After crossing the Palanpur, you have two options :
1. Take NH-14 and Reach Abu Road (The base of Mt. Abu)
2. Take the Right turn after the Huge Circle and follow SH-54 and enroute Visit Mata Temple at Ambaji. From Ambaji you can take SH-9 for entering into Rajasthan at Abu Road.
Palanpur - Ambaji and Abu Road forms a triangle.Report Abuse
Your route would be Mumbai-Surat-Baroda-Ahmedabad-Mount abu.
I have done Baroda-Mount Abu in 4 hours and Mumbai-Baroda in 5. But that was on a particularly good day with very little traffic. The traffic from Mumbai to baroda will be quite heavy with lotsa heavy axle units which hog the fast lane.
Baroda Ahmedabad will be easy since the expressway is quite efficient.
Start early in the morning from Mumbai, reach baroda by 12..rest for two to three hours and then reach Mount abu by nightfall. That is what I would doReport Abuse
Hi, I may not be able to detail out every city on the route, so the best is check the googlemap to get a fair idea. It will help you immensely. All the bestReport Abuse

Hi, the distance is close to 800 km and it may take you two days to reach Mount Abu. You may break your journey at Ahmedabad and continue further the next day.Report Abuse
