Perfect, avoid Nizamabad route at any cost.

Start early in the morning from Shiridi,

Else you will get stuck in Pune traffic.

 

You can cover some places in Panchgani.

 

Check these two links for places to visit on Panchgani

Shirdi to Mahabaleswar

Shirdi - Pune - Mahabaleswar

If you love your car do not take Nagar(Ahmednagar) Bypass while going to Pune this road is very very bad. Go through the Ahmednagar city instead.

Day3 - Shirdi to Mahabaleswar

 

I would suggest start from Shirdi around 4-5 PM  on day-2 & stay in Pune (Katraj side).

 

You will reach Pune around 9:30 -10:30PM so the traffic is avoided plus you will get more time in Mahabaleshwar/Panchgani on Day-3. As Pune(Katraj) to Mahabaleshwar is around 2.5 hr drive.

Looks like this option is much better.

You will have more time to explore.

Do we need to touch the Pune city? any bypass, or simply follow the Google map ?

OSMANABAD-BEED-PATHARDI-TISAGAON-MIRI-VAMBORI-RAHURI-SHIRDI Road condition is better. Though little longer around 40km.

 

Follow Google Map.

There no such thing happened in last 5 years. Absolutely no problem if you cover this section before dark.

Hello,

 

I am done with my road trip – I am not a good in writing skills…

Hyderabad – Shirdi – Bheemashankar – Mahabaleswar – Kolhapur – Hyderabad.

 

Day -1 

Started from Hyderabad @5:20AM reached Tuljapur by 9:30AM(280KM) route followed is

Hyderabad-Zaheerabad-Humnabad-Omerga-Naldurg-Tuljapu

Almost road is over until Omerga but Omerga to Naldurg still road construction is going on. So around 25 Km horrible road until you reach Naldurg. From Naldurg to Tuljapur is good( except 3 to 4 Km)

 

We took 2 hours break, for Tulajabhavani matha darshan and breakfast.

 

Again we start at 11:30 AM from Tuljapur. –

Tulajapur -OSMANABAD-BEED-Padal sing bus stop – (440KM) reached at 2:30PM, Most of the road is super. Not entire stretch.

1-hour lunch break

Started at 3:30PM from Padalsingh bus stop to PATHARDI road is Very good (505KM) reached around 4:10PM

TISAGAON-MIRI-VAMBORI-RAHURI-SHIRDI is around 118KM but most of the road is single road and path holes, if any vehicle comes in opposite then you have to get down the road.. I personally do not like this road.(If the proper SUV then no issues).

 

Day 2-

Saibab Darshan and visit the Sai theerth theam park.

 

Day 3-

Shirdi to Bheema Shankar (6:45AM to 11:10AM (including 1 hour for breakfast)(632Km to 810km=178KM)

Shirdi – Sangamner – Manchar – Bheemashankar

Road is super, but last 50 Km to reach bheemashankar road condition is horrible and its hill.

Due to karhikamasam heavy crowd and no maintenance of the temple, for Darsh it took 2:30 hours.

There is no wash rooms (downhills) and no proper hotels for food.

Returned @- 3:15PM from bheema Shankar(Bheema Shankar – ghodegaon – manchar-pune-panchagani)

Stopped for lunch at Ghodegoan(5:00PM) at there is a MTDC hotel and food is good.

Lunch break (5-6PM).

Reached Manchar @6:25(869KM)

Night stay at salur near wai. (1018KM )


Day 4-

started to panchagani @8:30 AM. Local sight seeing and went to mapro garden and later went mahabaleswar and stayed night.

 

Day 5-  

Hire a guide(800rs) Local sightseeing of Mahabaleswar.

Evening 6:10 started to Kolhapur(1110KM)

Route – Mahabaleswar – satara-shiroli-Kolhapur(first 20Km horrible and later 30 km patch road then highway super.)(Total - 181KM)

Reached Kolhapur @10:30PM.

 

Day 6
Morning went for mahalish mandir darshan and done the breakfast and started to Solapur @11:20

Route - Kolhapur –Miraj - sangola  Solapur.(227KM)

Road condition – Kolhapur to Miraj mix of patch road and normal road. later road is good but it’s a single road only.

Reached Sholapur @4:00PM and had lunch and later visited siddheswar temple in Solapur.

Started back to hyderbad @6:00PM and reached the hyderbad @11:30PM.

 

 

Thanks for your guidance n the route. 

 

Regards

Subhash

@SUBBU1 Bhimashankar hills are extremely beautiful during the monsoon (August). The roads in that region are always spoilt with a lot of potholes all the way. I have done a ride and a trek in the Bhimashankar hills 4 years ago and thoroughly enjoyed it getting drenched in rains :)
