I believe they have built a stone wall near Donigal to completely block all traffic.Looks like they're finally serious.Looking forward to driving on these wonderful stretches in about 2 months time .

This gets even more interesting.....The mining trucks tried reaching Mangalore thro Charmadi & were promptly blocked by the villagers near Mudigere.So,they came back on NH48,broke thro the stone wall at Donigal & at Gundiya,continued to Mangalore. .Now the cops come into the scene,station two patrol jeeps on both ends & keep a vigil day & night.
Thank goodness the govt in Karnataka is gone...else the mining trucks would've been back, what with the political clout they have.

I hope this joy is long lived. Wished they stopped mining trucks from entering the Sakleshpur ghat section and made life easier for the public.

Hope these(miners) nitwits dont bribe their way again into using NH-48.

Gosh! Those fellas should be made to pay up for the losses incurred by so many. The main culprits who responsible for sucha damage.
Always the wrong doings are backed by politicians, save this country

Default If from Mangalore

Found this old thread, so adding to it instead of starting a new one.

A friend of mine is coming to Mangalore with family with the intention of making a short trip to Sringeri-Horanadu-Dharmasthala-Kukke and then back to Mangalore. I may not join them on the trip.

I would like to know:

1) The right order to visit all four places when starting from Mangalore.
2) The approximate travel times/distances on each leg
3) Would it be possible to return to Mangalore on the same day, or else what should be the plan

Please enlighten me!

There isn't any order as such, But best practice would be
Mangalore - Gundya- Kukke subramanya - Back to Gundya- Dharamsthala- Guruvayankere-Bajagoli-Kudremukha-Kalasa-Hornadu-Basarikatte-Jaipura-Sringeri-Agumbe-Hebri-hiriyadka- udupi / Karkala - Mangalore. Vice versa
I'm not so sure abt the distance
This trip can't be done in a day's time covering all the said 5 places.
Day1 - Visit Kukke subramanya , Dharmasthala( HALT)
Day2 - Hornadu - Sringeri - MLR

this leg Sringeri-Agumbe-Hebri-hiriyadka- udupi / Karkala - Mangalore can also be done as sringeri-Jaipura-basarikatte-kudremukha-karkala-mulki - mlr.
Remember it's summer time, it will be hot n tiring

Hope this helps.

Apart from what sushrutha suggested, here's the vice versa option :

Mangalore - Udupi - Hebri - Agumbe - Sringeri - 130 km
Sringeri - Balehonnur - Kalasa - Hornadu - 80 km ( long but good roads )
Hornadu - Kalasa - kottigehara - Charmadi ghats - Ujire - Dharmasthala - 98 km
Dharmasthala - Nellyadi - Gundya - Kukke subramanya - 57km
Kukke - Kadaba - Uppinangadi - Mangalore - 104km

Mangalore - sringeri can also be thru Karkala - bajagoli - kerekatte.
Likewise, sringeri - hornadu can also be by jayapura - basarikatte - kudremukha - samse - kalasa ( very scenic route )

First day halt can be at Hornadu / kalasa. Leave early on day two to complete 259 km + two temples, else, halt at Subramanya.

Hope this helps..

Folks,

I plan to go to Dharmasthala and Subramanya from bangalore. Is it advisable to drive by your own car or take Volvo buses that ply from Bangalore to Dharmasthala (Friday night)and come back from Subramanya sunday morning.
I do not like night driving by my own car. Night travel by bus is ok though.
If I take the bus is there any disadvantage I may face?

Thanks.

Diesel fan, both options will be fine. since the shiradi is in a better shape lately. driving wont be a bad option. Taking bus would give you more time for darshan...
