Hi,

This route is through Bangalore and then core karnataka roads. Irrespective of the roads keep an average of 60km/hour for the 900kms. This is your road time which is around 15 hours.

Then add the break time of around 2 hours. Thats around 17 hours when everything goes fine.

The best way to reach IMHO is start the previous night and reach Bangalore. Start at 4 as per your plan from Bangalore so you can probably reach comfortably before dusk. Similarly plan a trip to stay at Bangalore while returning and starting at early morning to Chennai on monday. You should be able to reach chennai by 10 and go to work by 12.

Its pretty much normal in chennai from what i see from my friends across different organization that 11-12 is standard in time . I am lonely at 8AM at work but i usually leave at 530.

Chennai>Vellore>Krishnagiri>Hosur>Bangalore bypass on NICE road>Kunigal>Channarayapattana bypass>Arsikere>Kadur>Bhadravati>Shivamogga>Sagar> Honnavara>Murudeshwara. Chennai>Bangalore>Channarayapattana section is a beautiful 4/6 lane toll NH. The remaining section is a good 2-lane SH/NH.

You have good hotels including A2B, CCD all along the route.

Assuming an average speed of 55 kmph, you require 16 hours including breaks to cover 844 km on this route. So, yes, you can easily reach the destination by 8 pm.

As you have mentioned already, travelling all the way from Chennai just to see Murudeshwara and back on a weekend can be hectic. Karnataka's coast has lot to offer for your viewing apart from Murudeswara and it would be best to replan your travel so that you enjoy other sights as well.

I can suggest an alternate route : Chennai - > Chitoor -> Palmaner -> Kolar - > Dabaspete -> Tumkur -Hiryur - Chitradurg ->Shimoga -> Sagar - Honnavar - Marudeshwar.

I do annual trips to Goa for the past 8 years and it can be quite tiresome to drive all the way beyond 700 km in a day for one driver.

Karnataka offers tens of dozens of destinations and surely you don't do any justice to drive all the way - some 1700km in a weekend just for one destination.
