MUMBAI to Dhanbad by road


Recommended Posts

Hi @PankajDokania, This is one of the most stressful stretch that you are going to do as the road conditions aren't so great. 3 days for it will be a comfortable drive but, 2 days will be a really hectic task to complete your whole leg of travel.

Make sure you start very early in the morning around 4  AM on both the days if its a 2 day plan breaking a night stay at Nagpur.


Suggested best route for a 3 day plan:

Day 1:

Mumbai - Igatpuri - Shirdi - Aurangabad - Amravati (Night Stay)

Day 2:

Amravati - Nagpur - Bhilai - Sambhalpur (Night Stay)

Day 3:

Sambhalpur - Ranchi - Dhanbad


Note: You Day - 2 and Day - 3 will the most strenuous drive due to bad roads and a lot of truck traffic.


This is best as per my knowledge.

Hi , any other route suggested maybe via Kolkata


You can to do it via Pune > Hyderabad > Kolkata 

But I feel distance is high.


But roads are good on this route.

Most of it is a 4-lane toll road. 


Only 50 Kilometres of it  is a bad road. 


Which car are you driving?

You can do it via Orissa but add an extra day to your travel time... That route will be  Mumbai - Pune - Hyderabad - Vishakapatanam - Puri - Dhanbad

or Mumbai - Pune - Hyderabad - Nagpur - Ranchi  - Dhanbad.


I would suggest you to do the 3 days drive instead of the other 2 options given. The route after Nagpur are a pain.

      Hyderabad to Hamsaladeevi Beach - A hidden Paradise
      After a long wait for the December trip, we kick started our vacation to the most beautiful Hamsaladeevi beach located in the Krishna district, Andhra Pradesh.
      Usually many of them skip this place due to lack of accommodation, but you will find a decent stay in Vijayawada which is around 80 kms approximately from Hamsaladeevi. It is definitely worth travelling so far to see the beauty of this Sagara Sangamam, where river Krishna meets the Bay of Bengal.
      We started at an early hour from Hyderabad and reached Vijayawada by 10 AM and checked into the OYO hotel. There are no food joints available at Hamsaladeevi beach so we packed the lunch from the hotel and headed out. Vijayawada to Hamsaladeevi drive took us 3 hours with some breaks.
      Hamsaladeevi village is 24 kms away from Avanigadda and we reached Hamsaladeevi by 3 PM. After a long drive from Hyderabad, there was an adrenaline rush gushing out to see this most beautiful place and couldn't wait to snap the sandy beach and the 'river-beach' meeting point. This point is 2 km away from the beach (From Hamsaladeevi village, beach is 4 kms) and we drove our car on the beach side shore to the port to see the confluence.

      Distance : 376 km
      Ride: Honda City
      Fuel : Petrol
      Mileage : 15 kmpl
      Hotel : OYO rooms (2000/- per night)
      Best Route 2016
      Hyderabad --> Suryapet --> Vijayawada -->Pedapulipaka --> Madduru --> Thotlavalluru --> Nimmagadda --> Avanigadda --> Nagayalanka --> Chodavaram --> Hamsaladeevi Beach
      Note: Don't take any diversions from the mentioned route else you might end up between bad conditioned roads and longer distances as you pass
