We'll be traveling in February and thinking of going by road from Aurangabad to Maheshwar. Does anyone have advice on road conditions? What about going through the Gautala Sanctuary to Dhule? Interesting stops along the way? Thanks, kikimunshi

I assume that you stay in Aurangabad includes a visit to the Ajanta caves.
Plan this on the last day and overnight in nearby Jalgaon.
This reduces the travel time to Maheshwar with several hours.

Aurangabad to Maheshwar--road condition

Thank you for your helpful reply and diaries. Jalgaon looks interesting but I'm a bit confused as it doesn't appear to be on a direct route to Maheshwar. I had thought the best way would be to go to the National Highway, either through Malegaon (the suggested route) or possibly through the game sanctuary.

You are right, I didn't have a good look at the map.
Jalgaon as town has nothing to offer, it is just a good stopover to avoid backtracking to Aurangabad.

We drove from Maheshwar to Aurangabad in last week Dec '12. Roads were fine - some were very good. Inside the buffer area of the sanctuary three policemen tried to stop us (it's a usual ploy to extract money from cars with out of state registration - private cars don't have to pay anything). We sped away.
