This trip is just a twinkle in my eye so far. Looking for suggestions as to interesting places en route and any other advice.

Hyderabad-Siliguri by road. Solo driver, me. When, don't know. At least after the monsoons, I guess, or winter.
Total distance, round trip, approx 4500 km

Tentative first stops Jabalpur. (800km) first day. Dunno rest of route.

No fixed time. No budget.

Wondering what would be good halts en route, besides Pench and/or Jabalpur. Want to avoid big cities. Don't want to see temples, mosques, churches, forts etc or a lot of people. Jungles and rivers are good.

Plan to go up to Sikkim/Darjeeling or wherever after Siliguri.

Rough map below. May detour to surroundings of Allahabad/Patna or Varanasi.

Capt, if you like rivers but not cities then Mandla might be an alternative stop to Jabalpur. Jabalpur's not bad as cities go but Mandla is just that little bit upriver on the Narmada and situated on a lovely bend in the river.

It's many years since I was there and I don't know what effect if any the dams have had in that stretch of the river.

Yeah, long time since I was thataway too.

When I mention cities as halts, I usually mean quieter areas around them

My plan, like I said, is still awhile away.

Also debating whether to take the road travelled before- the coastal route via Orissa.

You already know, probably, that the road Hyd to Pondicherry will be very good. In your place though, unless I had to be back in Hyderabad and the Siliguri trip was later, I would go up the East coast.
