It was a Family trip and we were excited to cover up the distance through our car. Its Honda City 1998 Model.
Destination was Allahabad and Lucknow. We had some work in Pune and Indore so the route which we chosen was Bangalore to Pune ( 1 day stay), then Pune to Indore ( 1 day stay), then Indore to Bhopal (1 day stay), then Bhopal to Allahabad ( 6 days stay), then , Allahabad to Lucknow ( 6 days stay), then Lucknow to Bangalore directly with night halt at Nagpur.
Total distance covered was around 5800 Highway drive + 1200 City drive.
Highway drive was excellent all the way 4 lane, except 3 bad stretches :
1. Belgaum to Pune ( too many speed breakers though 4 lane)
2. Satna to Allahabad 200 Km ( no road at all + lots of Fog)
3. 100 Km before Nagpur + 200 Km after Nagpur ( single lane & no road at all, dangerous to drive)
While coming back it was raining on the way from Lucknow to Nagpur, all around there was lot of Fog. So enjoyed the climate. Restaurant are very less on on Golden Quadrilateral and NH7.
Rest all way was part of Golden Quadrilateral & North-South Corridor and excellent to drive. Planning once again the same stretch again during November 2015.
