Thank you, ranjitp1! This time, I think I'll try the NH4A option mentioned by you.

I hope there's only one "Goa road" from Belgaum, else I'll reach Goa via some totally different route!

Cheers,
Vikram

Ranjit I hope there are some good hairpin bends there to drive down slope in low gear. Hopefully I will get the small niggles in the car fixed before Diwali so that I can drive that way soon after.

On the contrary, I think there are more than a couple of routes from belgaum to Goa. So I hope you find the road you are looking for.

Thanks for the photo Sahir. I just spoke to my Goa house painter. He says the tilari route is bad atm since they let in a lot of vehicles on that route during the blockage of amboli ghat due to landslide during these heavy rains .


Ranjit you will find the route in my post

Well sorry to say, but thats good news for me. That helps to keep the unwanted crowd away from Tilari. As I told you, get in touch with me when I am down there, Promise that you will enjoy the place.
Cheers.

Just back from a refreshing Goa-Gokarna-Kumta-Murudeshwar-Chikmagalur trip.

ranjitp1 - You were right! The Anmod ghat route was awesome - both road condition wise and scenery wise.

Traffic was dense till about 15-20 kms out of Belgaum, but then it thinned out and the drive was an absolute pleasure. 80 - 85% of the road from Belgaum to start of Anmod ghat is good, with the rest being a mix of not so good and really bad. However, the thing to remember is that most of the bad patches are on the curves, so they are not easily noticeable till it's too late.

The Anmod ghat itself is a belter. It was totally shrouded in fog, with hardly any traffic - it really was a drive to remember.

There was a 2-3 km long line of parked dumper trucks some distance after the ghat ended, but luckily there was hardly any oncoming traffic, enabling me to slip past them quickly. After this, the drive till Panaji was a mix of moderate to heavy traffic.

Drive time from Pune to Panaji was 9 hours 15 minutes including a 30 minute breakfast break at Sai International near Kolhapur, and a couple of tea and photography breaks on the road from Belgaum to Panaji.

Cheers,
Vikram

Hello,

i am planning to travel to goa on my bike with my wife this 19th. i came to know from about this route 'Nipani-Uttur - Ajara - Amboli-Sawantwadi' could someone throw some light on how safe the road is. I had done a ride via gagan bavda in the past (riding solo) but found that it was too deserted. also if i could get the exact kms for this route it would be very helpful

Warm Regards,
Shashi

There is another thread related to Goa route. One of the more recent posts suggest the Pune-NH4-Belgaum-Khanapur-Anmod route for South Goa. I am leaving this Friday for Goa and am going that route.

Will post updates once back.

I guess you're referring to http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/route-...ur-goa-19.html or maybe http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/route-...ueries-14.html (Goa Route Queries). I recently posted an update there on the short cut route between Khanapur-Anmod. Note that this road is driveable -- with caution -- but only if your vehicle and passengers take the bumps well. It's about 17 km shorter than the NH-4A route via Londa/Ramnagar.

I'll be driving to Mumbai next Tuesday or Wednesday and stil haven't been able to decide which route to prefer. It'll largely depend on the angle of sunlight when I reach the Anmod junction -- on the shortcut route, it can be difficult to keep your eyes peeled for the next pothole when the sun is in your eyes.

In that thread, I forgot to mention that the Ponda bypass (for turning towards Madgaon from NH-4A) is rough-surfaced and dusty, but is still a faster route than driving through the town at most times of day.

Yep! That's the one. I will be driving the Xylo which takes bumpy roads well, but am not hardpressed for time either. I don't mind the longer route if the road is devoid of potholes. What do you suggest?
