Is there any other way to find whole path of the host.
Please help me to solve the issue.
i don't think this is an error ! looks like those routers/gateways are firewalled ( they to not answer your icmp - query )
the route to a host depends on several things , a router can change the route if there is a better / faster one available , so the "path" can change....
you can modify your routing table ... see route command
