Default bangalore-kundapur scenic route

Hey Guys!
I am planning to drive to Kundapur-Marvanthe from bangalore next weekend. I know Shiradi Roads are ready to be driven on. I plan to take Kundapur-Udupi-Mangalore-Shiradi-Hassan-bangalore while returning.
But while travelling to Kundapur i wanna try some new route. I havent tried anything else other than Shiradi. Is charmadi route still good enough for my Fiesta After 4 years of Ksrtc and Lorries on that route???
After charmadi, where to deviate to go towards Kundapur??
Pls specify road conditions.

Pramod, you can try to avoid Mangalore - Udupi stretch as well.
Take the route as follows:
Blr - Hassan - Sakleshpur, right turn for Dharmashthala
Dharmasthala - Beltangandy - karkala - Manipal - Kundapur, nice scenic route and you will enjoy a lot.

You can try out charmadi ghats in the return.

Suggest you to pls go through my Saligrama Travelogue where I did the same route.

Abhi

Just did the Pune-Beltangadi stretch today (14 hr drive). Namesake highway 17 is back to martian standards, thanks to the mine trucks. Fortunately NH63 is in good shape.

Hey pramod,
You can try this route. BLR-HASSAN-BELUR-MUDIGERE-KOTTIGEHAR-CHARMADI-UJIRE-GURUVAYANKERE-BAJAGOLI/MOODABIDRE(any 1) - KARKALA-MANIPAL-UDUPI-KUNDAPURA
The charmadi road has been repaired, your fiesta can be easily driven from Bangalore - Belur - charmadi - guruvayankere, after that it's been very long since i travelled to kundapura via bajagoli / moodabidre

Take this route
BLR-HASSAN-BELUR-JANNAPURA-MUDIGERE-KOTTIGEHARA-KALASA-HORNADU
Spend sometime in Kudremukha
HORNADU-BASARIKATTE-JAYAPURA- SRINGERI
SRINGERI-JAYAPURA-BALEHONNUR-ALDUR-CHIKMAGALUR-BELUR-HASSAN-BLR
This road condition is good for fiesta, any other route will be pretty long

After the election, the mine lorries got back into the ghats road in vengence. So it could be really bad, do post your feedback after the trip.

Meanwhile, I will be doing Mangalore-Madikeri this week on the Jeep.

just to update..

My close relative drove yesterday and i checked with him.. he said due to heavy rain it was tough to negotiate sudden potholes filled with water.. but overall he felt road is nice from bangalore-sakleshpur.. and worsens thereafter.. but motorable

i am looking forward to drive on thursday.. and will post the feedback
