I'm planning to drive from Mumbai to Goa.
Previously when I have gone with my Indian friends and they were driving, we have driven the Mumbai-Goa road, and then gone onto National Highway 17. We've always done this at night, which I'm not brave enough to do by myself.
Google maps suggests that going down National Highway 4 would be an better journey, but I'm not sure which is better in term of traffic - NH4 is going to go through Pune, and also which is a more interesting journey - is there much to see on NH 4?
Many thanks in advance for any advice
