Pune-Kolhapur-Hubli(via nh4)-take right onto NH63 at hubli-Ankola-Gokarna

Can easily be covered in 5days.Pune-Gokarna and Pune-Jog can easily be done in a day's drive.No need of any stopovers.

Ranjit already answered this. NH4/NH63/NH17 (Pune-Hubli-Ankola-Gokarna)

NH17/NH206
Gokarna-Honnavar-Sagar-Jog. No about the volume of water today.

Pune-jog falls-gokarna - murudeshwar-pune
Pune-gokarna-murudehswar-jog falls-pune
which plan is best ?
I think plan should be: Pune-Gokarna-Murdeshwar-Jog-Pune
If you stay overnight at Gokarna, then the next day cross Honnavar and drive till Murdeshwar. Visit the temple and come to Honnavar (Its just 20km) and drive through NH206 to Sagar/Jog. On the way back from Jog, take the route through Sirsi-Yellapur to hit NH63 and continue the way back to Hublic and Pune there on.

Should be possible 2 days to drive and 3 days to Visit.
Day 1 : Reach Gokarna. (A bit of a stretch but should be possible with 4L till Hubli)
Day 2: Gokarna-Murdeshwar-Jog (Halt)
Day 3 : Jog/Sirsi/Yellapur-Hubli (Halt/Buffer)
Day 4 : --
Day 5 : Hubli-Pune

Maybe you can also drive till Hubli on Day 1.

Explained prior. If you have 5 days you can divide till Hubli on Day 1.
So you can re-work it to:
Day 1 : Pune - Hubli (Halt)
Day 2: Hubli-Gokarna (Halt)
Day 3: Gokarna-Murdeshwar-Jog (Halt)
Day 4 : Jog/Sirsi/Yellapur-Hubli (Halt)
Day 5 : Hubli-Pune

You can book at least for Gokarna and hotel in Sagar. I think Hubli should be fine.

Hey!
I'm planning a trip, and I need some inputs to finalise my plan. Here is what I have in mind.
Route: Pune-Gokarna-Dandeli-Doodhsagar falls-Pune

Day 0: Leave Pune by 2 PM, reach Gokarna by midnight
Day 1: Chill at Gokarna, visit Yana and reach Dandeli by evening
Day 2: Relax at Dandeli - full day
Day 3: Leave Dandeli early morning, reach Doodhsagar falls. Finish sightseeing etc and leave for Pune. Stop en route somewhere near Sawantwadi
Day 4: Sawantwadi to Pune

Q1)Is Day 0 plan feasible? We plan to take the Pune-Dharwad-Yellapur-Ankola route. We will try and reach Dharwad by 8 PM. Is it safe to travel on NH63 at night so that we can reach Gokarna by 11PM, or at max by midnight? We are meeting friends there who will be coming from Bangalore, so we want to reach on Day 0 itself so as not to spoil the next day's plan. Does this seem like a stretch?

Q2)I wanted info on what is worth visiting near Dandeli, but I aleady got that thanks to Viper, karthikpai and mahesh Has anyone been to Yana? Is it worth a visit?

Q3) On the return from Sawantwadi to Pune, we would want to come through some Konkan territory. Anyone know the current condition of NH17(new NH66) between Goa and Mumbai? Also, which would be a good ghat to get back onto the NH4, somewhere after Ratnagiri?

Any other comments/suggestions are also very welcome.

Thanks!
