How about Chopta to Mandal? I remember one of your post (couldn't find it even after spending lot of time searching for it) mentioning the virgin dense forest through which this road passes. I was searching for that post as i've to go to Badrinath in June and was drooling at the thought of driving through that road in my new innova.

I still haven't managed to drive that stretch . If it was my post, I must have been quoting someone else - it is reported to be very scenic.
