Lovely road all the way, except for some nasty road humps (unmarked, of course) and poor facilities.

3 hours, 10 kms! What caused the jam, is it a constant thing?

I do not know. I was there at Munerabad at 3 PM. From then onwards huge pile of lorries for kilometers length. I had to go in the opposite lane many times( actually the lorry drivers themselves told me to go like that) . by the time i reached the BP petrol bunk outside hospet it is 6PM.

Actually i also wanted to know it is a regular problem, as in intend to go on another trip in near future in that road.

Went to Hampi last weekend of May. Took the Tumkur - Hiriyur - Bellary - Hospet route.

On entering Bellary, there was left turn marking 'Hospet' which crosses over a railway track. This deviation was very very bad with huge craters. My Swift took some bad hits. While coming back we came through Bellary which was good and saved quite a bit of time and energy. And yes watch out for those unmarked speed breakers and cows.

Default Update Needed Please

Guys - I need a update on the bangalore to Hampi Route. How is it after the monsoons? Friend is planning a Swift DZire drive to Hampi-Hospet.

Don't take NH-13. i.e the Chitradurga - Hospet - Hampi route. I travelled in the 2nd week of August in that route and it took me almost 4.5 hrs from Chitradurga to Hospet.

Hi Guys,

Any update on the road condition on NH13 and NH7 and route suggestions along with approximate times for the trip Bangalore-Hampi-Mantralaya-Bangalore.

I plan to go this weekend in Innova (6 ppl), leave bangalore at around 7am, visit hampi and reach Mantralaya by night. And then, start off from Mantralaya on Sunday at around 1pm and reach bangalore by around 7pm at palace grounds (wouldn't want to miss the Octoberfest there).

Thanks in advance for your valuable suggestions.

Hi Folks,

Any news on the NH13 or NH7 route conditions to hampi?. Debating on the NH to take to hampi since the post above mentions NH13 being terrible. (that was in Aug, has it improved any?. Unlikely i would imagine)

Just came back from a trip to Hampi. Took the route via Anantpur/Gooty/Bellary/Hospet.
Bellary-Hospet stretch is full of craters. From Bellary to Gooty, some 25 kms in AP side is bad.
While going, there was one place where a smooth road suddenly ended in a pit and my car literally fell into the pit.
Overall, Hospet to Gooty which is around 150 kms, took 4 hours in day time.

SilentEngine, that was quite a long route! I see little hope for improvement in the Gooty-Bellary-Hospet road, seems to be like this all the time

Just been back from Jungle lodges resort at Daroji and Hampi.

Had taken the NH7 from Bangalore to Gooty and then NH63. NH63 is OK between Gooty and Guntakal but beyond Guntakal it's horrible.

For the return journey I continued on NH63 and took a right turn just before Bellary when I reached a board which said "BANGALORE BYPASS ROAD". I had no idea what road this was but took it anyways since it looked absolutely fantastic. It was four laned, well marked and had a toll of Rs.12/-.

After about 12 kms this four laned road abruptly ended and turned into a 2 laned one as it reached a railway crossing. Once past the crossing, I realised I was on SH19.

SH19 right upto Hiriyur (all 146 kms) is AWESOME! Well marked two laned butter-smooth road. You can easily and safely maintain triple digit cruising speeds on this stretch.

At Hiruyur I turned left and joined NH4.

All in all I think NH4-SH19-NH63 combination is the best one to Hampi.
