The roads are in good condition all the way from Bangalore till Kukke.
Thanks for the confirmation.

So the route will be:

Bangalore --- Mysore --- Madikeri --- Sullia--- Guthigaru---- Kukke

Hope you're starting early from Bangalore since you're taking Mysore Road.

If not do consider going via Nelamangala-Channrayapatna-Arkalgud-Holenarasipura-Shanivarasanthe-Somwarpet-Madikeri-Sampaje-Sullia-Kukke.
Good twisties and fun to drive route with lesser traffic.

Thanks for the suggestion. Looks like a good alternative. Will keep that in mind.

Will this be a longer route than the one suggested earlier?

Thanks for the route info. I had been to Subramanya from Bangalore last weekend. Took some route mentioned above Nelamangala-Channrayapatna-Arkalgud-Holenarasipura-Shanivarasanthe-Madikeri-Sampaje-Sullia-Kukke , Very scenic and good road.

While coming I had to go to Sakleshpur very near to end of Shiradi Ghat. So we made a request and took Shiradi Ghat . Road is good, but lot of mud on road probably they will clear it. It was supposed to be open for public from 26th July.

See this thread for more updates - here (The art of travelling between Bangalore - Mangalore/Udupi)

Just made the trip last weekend the road has been repaired and no problem travelling even in a low sedan like the BMW 5er. Found the Mayura restaurant near the BGS college institutions refreshingly good and clean with excellent service.

Friends, i had posted this in other thread, but as this is more specific to bangalore - kukke, I'm posting to get more inputs.
We are 7 people with parents and 3 years kid are planning a trip to Kukke on Oct 2nd long week. Plan is to start on Friday morning and return by Sunday with chauffeur driven innova. We wanted to visit Dharmastala, Sringeri, Horanadu (optional) then Kukke. Request your valuable inputs on the route and better accommodation details.

Did a Bangalore-Kukke round trip. Started yesterday morning at around 7 AM from North Bangalore. Took the Hassan, Sakleshpur, Gundya route. Bangalore to Hassan stretch was good. Had a break at Adyar Ananda Bhavan in Udaypura. Consistent offering as always. Hassan to Sakleshpur was two lane, scenic and occasionally patchy. Sakleshpur to Gundya ghat section was not bad as feared. Encountered lot of truck traffic but nothing to drastically reduce your travel time. I took it easy as the rear occupants were experiencing motion sickness. Gundya to Kukke was simply out of the world. Slightly rain drenched roads, thick foliage on both sides of the road and almost no other vehicles made it a very pleasant drive. Reached Kukke at around 1 pm.
Stayed at Seshnag Ashraya (based on an input by another member in one of the posts) and it turned out to be an excellent value for money place. Spacious and neat rooms and pretty close to the temple.
Decent food options are quite limited though in the place surrounding the temple.
Had a relaxed start today morning at around 830 AM. It was drizzling and the Kukke - Gundya stretch was magical. Sakleshpur - Hassan was good as well. Then it was the pretty boring straight highway stretch all the way till Nelamangala. Reached home by around 2 pm.
