Bangalore to Udupi and back.
Route Query: I'am planning to go to Udupi starting from 25/12. Pls suggest the route as I understand the route from Bangalore to Mangalore is bad with pot holes/ craters. Which other route is feasible. I will be travelling in Ikon with 4 members (2 adults and 2 kids). It will be 3 day trip. Planning to start at around 8.00 am in morning. OR is it better to go by bus to Udupi and take a vehicle from Udupi and move around the places.
Places Query: Also suggest which are the places I can watch out in and around Udupi. I have seen Malpe/ Murudeshwara/ Kollur/ Hornadu/ Dharmastala/ Sringeri/ Sirsi/ Gokarna etc and almost all the pilgrimage places. I have also gone to St. Mary's Island.
Weather Query: How is the weather in and around Udupi. Is it hot/cold/manageable? Pls inform as I will be travelling with my family with 2 kids. (1~5 yrs of age). Do I need to bring in lot of warm clothes?
Pls suggest if any other places are worth seeing in and around Udupi.

Since this thread is active, I will just add:
I drove on NH17 northwards from Mangalore last weekend. Went till Maravanthe where the road almost rubs shoulders with the sea over a long stretch.
First 20 km from Mangalore was very bad. Four-laning is in progress till Surathkal and driving there is an ordeal; diversions and all. The heavy traffic didn't help.
From there, Surathkal - Udupi- Kundapur seemed to be in good condition, though slightly rough (yet driveable) at a few places. All potholes have been patched up.

Hey I have already completed this tour (in bus of course). My friends and relatives advised not to drive in those roads as I was going with family. The bus itself ran around 2 hrs late as the roads were too bad.
@ Mods: Pls close this thread.
