Go ahead. Easily doable.

Do you have plan to see temples in Belur and Halebeedu? If yes, i would recommed that you do it while going itself - since you are not doing in CKM on day 1 - so that you can comfortably drive back to Bangalore after darshan in Dharmasthala and Subramanya as well.

Have you seen Subramanya? If not, why don't you take a detour - 35 Kms of Good roads - from Dharmasthala, visit Subramanya and come via Shiradi instead of Charmadi?

For home stays in CKM, you can look at this good website

Hello Fauji,

Thank u for the comments!.

Good Question: to cover Belur & Halebeedu on first day!

From Dharmasthala / subramanya is Charmadi road better or shiradi road is better. Since i heard Shiradi is in very bad shape and charmadi is much better with less traffic.

You can cover belur/halebeedu on first days as you are going and resting in Hotel in the evening.

You dont have to go back again to Dhramathala from Subramanya to do Charmadi route, save 35 KMs of drive and come via Shiradi before it becomes really bad, which it is not now and still doable

Thanks Fauji;

But i want to know also below information.

1. Best route from chickmagalur to Horanadu.
2. Any Petrol pumps on charmadi ghat road, or on dharmasthala section to Subramanya ?
3. Which is better route from dharmasthala to Subramanya (there are multiple routes from Dharmasthala to Subramanya).
4. While Subramanya to Bangalore; which route is better
5. Good Hotels in hassan for lunch (lunch while returning)

Any other precautions, i need to take care while travelling in ghat sections/forest sections.

I have puncture kit with Air pump (brought from spar). and emergency towing rope

CKM-Horandu: CKM-Aldur-Mudigere-Kottegehara-Kalasa-Horanadu.
I think that is the shortest route. (Not sure how is it today)

Dharmsthala-Kukke:
I think there is only option (folks correct me if I am wrong)

(Come down to NH48 and further south to hit Kukke)

Answesr to your questions.

1. the route is CKM - Vastare - Mudigere - Kottigehara - Horanadu. I read on one of the therads that road from CKM to VAstare is not good. But you dont have an option.

2. Fill up fuel in Mudigere. There is nothing on Charmadi. the next one will be in Ujire on the other side of Ghat.

3. There is only one straight road which joins Dharmasthala to NH 48 and then after driving for few KMs on NH towards Bangalore take detour to Subramanya. it is well siganaged. No worries.

4 From the latest post by Samurai, Shiradi has become very bad for cars. So you can come back via Charmadi again. Look at his post on the thread "Art of travelling bewteen Bangalore and Udupi"

5. There are many hotels on main road. Krishna and Suvarna regency are good.

Agreed, there is only one route to Kukke from Dharmasthala

Agree with Fauji, add Belur/halebeidu to the list. Start a bit early if possible (with a 2 year old, its difficult I know). Also when you go to Belur/Halebeidu, park a little far from temple, the last time I parked in front of temple they charged me 25 bucks(5 years back). No special parking area, you just leave it on the road. Those guys gave me a ticket and said government parking charges. I doubt them though.

And meals in the temple are a must have. You can eat twice the amount you usually have,they are that tasty.

Nopes ...
The road from CKM to vastare is in fairly good condition. Some 15 days back update.

Nopes Between Mudigere and Charmadi, you can fill up at Kottigehara too.
