Which route is better Mumbai-Aurangabad-Nagpur or Mumbai-Dhule-Nagpur?

In terms of distance and time there is hardly any significant difference. The Mumbai-Aurangabad-Nagpur route covers around 820 km and takes 12-13 hours, and the Mumbai-Dhule-Nagpur route covers around 840 km which will take around similar time. So, if your main concern is reaching quickly, both will take around the same time, however the latter one seems to be the preffered option.

A better route from sightseeing point of view would be the Mumbai- Aurangabad-Nagpur route. Aurangabad (City of Gates) is a merchandising hub, but also has rich treasures in archeology, history, culture and arts. The famous Ajanta and Ellora caves are located nearby. Also, unknown to many, Aurangabad is a Mecca for non-vegetarian food lovers.

Thanks for the information. I actually also wanted to know in terms of road conditions, places to stop for washroom, food etc and safety in terms of driving at night.. Can you or someone help with that ??
I'm glad you found this helpful. As far as I can tell, the route from Mumbai-Dhule-Nagpur is usually the more preferred choice. I'm afraid I am unable to help you with your queries about washrooms, food and safety. Both the routes fall on major National highways, so there are bound to be good eatery options on the way with clean washrooms. For such specific details, a local or a regular traveller on these routes will be able to guide you better. Thanks.
