That is via Bisle ghat. When Shiradi ghat is in great shape, one should be mad or a Jeeper to take Bisle ghat.

It looks very direct on google map, so I guess people think it is practical.

Agree with Addyhemmige. I had last driven through Shiradi ghats a month ago, and although the surface was mildly bumpy, it wasn't bad at all. There's no reason to expect it to be much different now.

In any case, my guess is that Samurai can give you the latest updates about roads in his turf

I strongly advise against taking the Nayandanahalli-Ring Road-Tumkur road route on a Saturday (gopikb says the trip begins on April 21st) since traffic can get extremely unpredictable and unpleasant at both Nayandanahalli cross as well as the Gurguntepalya (Ring Rd-Tumkur Rd junction) point.

Why risk peace of mind when you have the NICE option, even in the face of some unreasonably high toll?

skandyhere, Thank you very much for your inputs also. While driving out, I plan at early start at 6AM. Hence I guess the Nayandahalli and Gurguntepalya will not be such a mess at that time. While coming back, it is definitely NICE road all the way.

Check this thread out, you will always get recent update on all the options/routes between Bangalore-Mangalore, that also includes Sakleshpur/Kukke route.

Take Bangalore-Kunigal route via Magadi, roads are free in early morning and you can reach Kunigal in less than 2 hours. The roads are excellent till Kunigal now. You will join NH near Kunigal, roads are good till Channarayapatna and you can easily cruise at 100+ speed. Take your Fabia as it is a better car on highway. BTW how old are these cars?

Fellow BHPians, I am planning a trip from Pune-Bengaluru-Mysore-Kukke-Pune sometime towards the end of next month.
Can someone advise the best possible route from Mysore to Kukke at that time. Will be with elderly parents and young daughter 3yrs old so would like to avoid bad roads wherever possible.
Considering the above, can someone recommend good accommodation options at Kukke?

From Mysore follow the below route:
Mysore-Hunsur-Madikeri-Sulya-Jalsoor-Kukke
(SH88 Mysore-Mangalore highway). Excellent road conditions till Madikeri
and (I'm told) pretty good road till Jalsoor, barring the one inside Sulya town.
Sulya-Kukke is a single, winding and good road thru plantations.

Strictly, one need not touch Sulya from Madikeri. But I've not tried the road that takes a right turn from Madikeri-Sulya road midway and joins the Jalsoor-Kukke road.

I've always stayed in Sheshnag Ashraya (that boasts of having had hosted Bollywood and cricket stars, including Tendulkar). BHPians have reported that SLR residency too is good. Please do book in advance.

I second prasad14's route description. Just a minor variation; instead of driving all the way to Jalsoor from Sulya, you can take the road on your right 3 km from Sulya (at Paichar) and that smoothly merges with the Jalsoor-Kukke road. Taking this road rather than driving all the way to Jalsoor might save about 13 kms.

B'lore-Kukke is a route without options. Theoretically, you have the choice between Hassan-Sakleshpura-Gundya-Kukke and Hassan-Ballupete-Hettur-Bisle Ghat-Kukke. Practically speaking, the second route is thoroughly ruled out unless you're looking for out and out motoring adventure! So via Sakleshpura and Gundya it will be.

I think Mysore-Madikeri-Sulya-Kukke should take approximately 5 hours. This is a rough estimate. Those who have traversed these roads recently could be more accurate, though.
