Default Re: Bangalore - Mantralayam : Route Queries

Thanks guys for helping through my queries. I returned yesterday from Mantralaya. Drive was pleasant and took nearly 6:30hrs to reach Mantralaya from Bangalore. Had a hiccup w.r.t traffic near adoni after anantpur from where the 2 lane roads starts. 120kms was mostly on rough patches tar and got stuck for nearly 45mins in a village due to village festival being celebrated and there was mass gathering. Apart from this hiccup or delay, the entire drive was just brilliant.

I stayed in SVG and AC room was in good shape except for AC which was merely in good condition to exhale good cool air.

Just attaching a random pic captured near the windmill enroute Mantralaya somewhere near Pattikonda.

This is another reason why I prefer Veldurthi road. The road from Yemmiganur to Mantralayam is butter smooth and wide. Slower road is only between Veldurthi and Yemmiganur which is around 65KMs. Bangalore to Veldurthi is NH-7 (4 lane). Any village roads (2 lane) are unpredictable and hence best to avoid them as much as possible

You have quoted a post from July 2016, there are several updates after that on the routes various members have taken including many by @rajivtelang, please read last few pages for the updates.

Hi /u/rajivtelang, can you please share me the route you are mentioning. I have been planning to go to Mantralaya since 2008, but for the fear of bad roads, I have not made the trip. I am ready to take the longest route if necessary. Please let me know the right route and I will plan my trip based on your inputs. Thanks in advance.

I presume you are driving from Bangalore. There are two routes to reach Mantralaya via Bangalore - Hyderabad highway. One, take the deviation at Gooty and take adoni- yemmiganur route to Mantralaya. Second, trav till Veldurthi on BLR-HYD highway ( this is further ahead of Gooty) and take a deviation there and reach Mantralaya via Yemmiganur.

Needless to say that BLR-HYD road is in great shape. Roads from Gooty to Mantralaya or Veldurthi to Mantralaya are single roads and narrow. Even though they aren't in bad condition, they would eat away your travel time.

Please refer to my recent previous posts where I have given route details. You can use google maps for tracking.
Veldurthi is on hyd highway. Take a route from veldurthi to laddagiri which further goes to Kodumur. Take a left at circle and continue. In some 400 odd meters you will hit another circle and rake a right here. This goes to Yemmiganur. Here you will find the route from Adoni converging. Then continue to Mantralaya. Straight smooth road.
Only road from veldurthi to kodumur have some 8km odd of narrow roads. One word of causion no matter which so ever road you take, be extra careful on village roads since there will be people around with 2 lane roads.

Assuming you are going from Bangalore, surely you can go via Kurnool. After reaching Kurnool you need to take the left towards Kodumur and then follow same road as I have mentioned below. But geographically you will be traveling north and back to south to reach Kodumur.
If you are thinking about the Sunkesula road that goes to Mantralaya parallel to Tungabhadra river from Kurnool, you need to eliminate that thought, Some BHPian had tried that and mentioned the average speed was 30KMPH on that road.
Going via Veldurthi to Kodumur saves some distance than going via Kurnool. If it takes same time 6.5 to 7 hours from Bangalore via Kurnool (distance will be more compared to any other route), it will be worth trying. Distance via this route from Bangalore is ~460KMs, far more than any other route. Via Veldurthi it is ~425Kms. Adoni routes are ~400-410 KMs
