From Political capital to financial capital, the Delhi-Mumbai road trip covers the beautiful state of Rajasthan, Gujarat leads to Maharashtra. The total distance between the two cities is around 1400 km via NH8. In a go this distance can be covered in a non stop 24 hour drive, but what's the fun if you can't take a stopover in cities like Jaipur, Udaipur, Ahmedabad, Vadodara and Surat.
The entire road is as smooth as cake with few bad patches, but others are so good that the entire journey will not be tiring. Though driving 1400 km is in a way tiring if you are not used to driving for long hours. Earlier, when I did this drive I was accompanied by a driver, hence it wasn't that painful as the driver did all the work. However, this time it was ourselves who were driving on our own and that was a challenge. If one has days to cover the distance, then stretch it to 3-4 days so that you also have time to see around the city and at the same time cover the distance. Since we were shifting to Mumbai, for us it was one way journey, whereas if you are visiting one of the city for just sightseeing then return journey will need in total 6 days minimum considering, you cover the entire distance in two days one side and 2 days for rest & sightseeing in the city.
