Shirdi is about 280 km from Mumbai. We left in the afternoon and reached there in 5 hrs. Roads are fine, getting out of Mumbai is what takes time. Once on the Eastern express highway things are better. There are 3 tolls that you would cross, post the last one there is a bypass from Gothi Village which cuts across and takes you to Shirdi, you need not go thru Nashik. This road for the first 10 to 15 km was not good, had a rough ride. Then had a good run for about 60 km and the last 10 km is bad as well. I would recommend to go via Nashik, it would be 30 odd km or more but a better ride. I came back via Nashik. Had lunch at Panchavati Hotel and then moved on to the highway back to Mumbai. Return trip took 6 hrs due to the 1 hr halt at Nashik.
Travel to Shirdi by car is a very nice experience. The Mumbai-Nasik highway is good, though at places the tolls seem excessive especially in Thane as the roads are pathetic. However, once you are on the "real" highway things get much better. From Igatpuri we usually take the inner road via Ghoti to Sinnar thus avoiding the heavy traffic in and from Nasik. That road is also pretty much ok - though in a need for repairs at some places. From Sinnar to Shirdi again the travelling experience is nice.
It is better travel by road during monsoon; preferably take an Innova. I would suggest you to start early, that helps a lot, and you can have your breakfast on the way. On the way you can enjoy the lovely scenery and don't forget to keep your cameras ready at all point. Roads very good, passed Thane through Chembur and on the way we got down for a little refreshments.
The journey was comfortable. Not too much to complain. I always travel by Neeta Travels whenever there is a need. Particularly, whenever I visit Maharashtra. I would recommend people to use this travels. Safe and reliable. Drivers seem to be very experienced.
The road from Mumbai till end of Kasara ghat is good. Then afterwards the road condition was varying between OK to very bad. The approach road to Shirdi is also congested. But most of the stretch is lined with eateries. Lots of greenery on the roadside makes it a pleasant driving experience.
