Due to mobile nature of the nodes and unreliable wireless channels for data transmission, frequent link failures occurs in mobile ad-hoc networks (MANET). This leads to research in multipath extension of the routing protocols. This paper proposed a link-disjoint multipath AODV (LD-MPAODV) routing mechanism to increase the robustness of routing process in MANET. The objective of the proposed routing protocol is to find all available multiple path from source to destination with minimum routing control overhead. At the end the performance comparison between two routing mechanism suggests that LD-MPAODV perform better in respect to packet delivery ratio, average routing overhead under different mobility and multiple traffic sessions.
