Hi all,

I am planning to spend a couple of days at Jageshwar and then proceed to Dayara Bugyal trek which is in Gharwal (road head Barsu). We plan to drive on our own and Google is suggesting a couple of options for the journey. It is about 450 kms and I don't want to attempt it in one day. So the question is:

1. What is the best route? We will have a high GC vehicle but not 4X4?
2. Which is a good point to break journey? Not particularly keen on likes of Srinagar or crowded places on Yatra route, as our plan is in mid-may
3. Any other things to take care-off

Thanks in advance

My preferred route is via Gwaldam-Gauchar-Rudraprayag-Ghansali. The stretch from Gwaldam, specially after Tharali is a beauty. I don't know if it is longer, but if you wish to drive in less traffic and via scenic route, this is the best. You may break your journey at Tilwara or nearabout.
If you find my posts confrontationist, please bear, I am an old frustrated guy who has nothing better to do than sit on rocking chair and curse the world whole day

Thanks!

Has anyone taken a ZoomCar or Myles from Delhi and driven in UK? What are some of the hassles, if any? I don't see myself driving from Mumbai to Delhi - takes two days and largely a boring drive.
