The primary challenges in mobile ad hoc network (MANET) are presence of obstacles, mobility, energy efficiency and network in dynamic topology environment. Efficient routing with obstacles avoidance in dynamic topology is a critical issue in MANET. Many mobility patterns have been recommended for the movement of nodes in presence of obstacles in MANET terrain. Some obstacles avoiding routing techniques are also proposed by some popular researchers. In this paper, many related articles have been reviewed and briefly discussed. The paper outlines advantages and drawbacks of each approach to get possible research scope in route planning in dynamic MANET topology in presence of obstacles.
