U could get a permit from any liquor shop but max 4 bottles per person. Permit would cost you 30 to 50 bucks extra.

@filcord: how are the roads if i take the hubli-belgaum-amboli-sawantwadi route instead of going via hubli-yellapur-ankola-karwar-south goa-north goa?

EDIT: If i can take the belgaum-khanapur-kankumbi route instead of the above, i seem to save 50kms (courtesy google maps) dunno the condition of the roads though :(

the Amboli ghats are not steep by any stretch of imagination,it has just one bend which would struggle to qualify as a hairpin.Go ahead and take it,you would love the sights,in case you are travelling during daylight,you would get to see the magnificent sights @ the Amboli waterfalls.

If you take the Kankumbi route,you would have to pass through Chorla Ghat,and some other threads report bad roads @ Chorla & plus for newcomers,i wouldnt recommend the chorla route as you would be on an unknown with very less or nil traffic.my guess is that you would be better off sticking to Amboli if you are heading north

the kankumbi route is via Chorla onwards to Sanquelim,there is a thread currently running on Chorla and from the threads its only reachable via bikes as the route itself has disappeared is what has been reported

read this thread for further info. http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/route-...ed-advise.html (Best Route to Chorla Ghat - Need Advise)

this leaves you with just two options- via Amboli & the other via Karwar

oh i don't know about permits. Basically you are taking booze from a state which allows booze, to a state which also does the same (not like Diu to Gujarat). The only permit you need is Rs 50 in the pocket of the policeman if you can't haggle.

As usual it depends on the situation. Traveling with family they might not bother to check you at all, then again might demand more since they'll know that you don't want the harassment.

If they want to fleece money out of you, there's no way in heaven that you can stop them with all your permits directly from the PM of the country.

How much more are you guys going to discuss this routes? There are 2 well written travelogues by nnandi and jacs under the travelogue section. Read through those. And one right in thise thread.

There is possibly no perfect route to Goa from Bangalore and since the 3 gentleman have been there only last week there won't be much change either.

If you guys are thinking of saving 50-100 kms and try routes that have not been tried recently then believe me you guys will getting confused even more. Take the frequented routes and plan your total travel time to be between 12-14 hours max.

And about Chorla Ghat - well 5 years back a KSRTC bus was beached due to a crater (pothole gone too big) on this route. Nothings been done since then so take your chances.

If you're travelling with family, don't take any risks - go via Karwar. Increase in 50-100kms. shouldn't matter.

well the 1st charter flight is landing on the 16th of Oct and that would signal the official beginning of the foreign tourist season,but yes by october,goa would begin to crowd,in fact it was crowded even in september,safer to have a booking,would let you have some time to research on places to stay.
