Default Mangalore-shimoga route info reqd.

Hi guys, have to go to Shimoga from Mangalore on 17th ie. the day after tomorrow, will be travelling by cab, which would be the best route to take? I've heard of a route that goes via mudigere, thirthahalli to Shimoga. How good are the roads on this route and is there an alternate route? Kindly advise. Thanks.

For now your best option is Mangalore-Udupi-Manipal-Hiriadka-Hebri-Agumbe-tirthahalli-Shimoga.

Yes route suggested by Samurai is the best route as per my knowledge, I heard after rainy season in 2006 roads near Agumbe damaged, I have few friends nearby they said roads are quite ok in ghat section.

This is the route which we took from Shimoga- Udupi- Mangalore 2-3 months back. Roads are good except for a few kms strech near Agumbe Ghats.

Agumbe ghat road has been fixed. I had been there 2 weeks ago.
It is fun to climb the agumbe ghat. I drove from Udupi to Shringeri via Agumbe. After Agumbe, to reach Shimoga, continue on the same route instead of turning to Shingeri. Not sure about the road between Agumbe and shimoga. It will be usually good. Never had a bad road on that stretch anytime so far.

The distance would be about 210kms, approx.

Thanks guys, took the road samurai suggested and DRC the agumbe to Shimoga is even better than Manipal-Agumbe stretch. It was a very scenic drive. Only problem was the indicab which was in damn bad shape with an even worse driver. The short trip, though on work is worth a travelogue, will try and post it sometime.
