Ashtavinayak Yatra Route and Guide

Aug 08, 04:55 PM
Welcome to the 11th episode of the Mark and Embark Podcast by ScoutMyTrip. The host for this episode is Myra Naik. 

In this episode Myra talks about one of most important pilgrimages for a devotee of Lord Ganesh - The Ashtavinayak Yatra. The blog post written by Vineet, co-founder of ScoutMyTrip has been relived through Myra's voice in first person. 

Ganesh Chaturthi is just around the corner and everyone is gearing up for the festivities. For ten days, the streets of Maharashtra will resemble a carnival, with local stages, music, dance and celebrations of all kinds. I have never seen Mumbai more vibrant than it is during the 10 days of Ganpati festival. 

In this podcast Myra talks about: 

  1. The ideal duration and why it should not be done in 2 days 
  2. The ideal route for Ashtavinayak Yatra 
  3. Must do things on the Ashtavinayak Yatra
  4. Recommended places for stay during the Ashtavinayak Yatra

If you wish to join the Ashtavinayak Yatra with Vineet, head straight to The Road Trips Co and register for the drive from 23rd to 25th of August which he is personally leading. He will be joined along with his wife who has done this pilgrimage an equal number of times.

A bit about our super epic road trip planner.

ScoutMyTrip allows 25 points on a single map compared to 10 that Google offers. To start doing that you'll need to head to the road trip planner and simply enter and start and end locations.

There is more you can do on the planner, and I would request you to check out our video tutorials.
