Nice! I knew about this road. But what I did not know was, that it was in so good a condition! Since I did not know the condition I did not suggest it.

This road is in super condition, but is a two lane road which becomes bit narrow inside Kudur town. But apart from that, it is very good. I had been on this road 3 months back in my Linea.

I had used this road while coming back from Shravanabelagola-Hyderabad
Kudur town has very narrow roads.
Probably using the state highway 3 Shivganga-Banawadi-Guddemaranahalli handpost
would be a better option.
Why I was saying this because I got stuck in the Kudur town by a tractor trolley and I had a tough time
reversing my vehicle and getting back on the road making way for the tractor the roads are so narrow.

He's booked KTDC at Belur for 2 nights..he was planning Halebeedu 1 night & Belur the 2nd night...but based on the feedback here he'll go straight to Belur

2. Places to visit around.
3. Good places to stay.
4. Any other tips.

Rohit.

Hi All,

I am planning a drive from Hyd- Chikmagalur this month end & would need suggestions on the best possible route.

from the details gathered from the last few posts, the best route seems to be
Devanahalli - Doddaballpur - Dobbaspet - Tumkur - Kadur - Chikamagalur.

however, came across another route on Google maps and wanted inputs if anyone has done this stretch before.

Hyd-Penukona, Deviate from Penukonda and take the route below,the distance from Penukonda is 313 kms by this route and shows as NH 234.

can anyone suggest if this is a better option than doing the first route ?

Dont do that. Stick to the one you mentioned (Devanahalli-Doddaballapur-Dobbaspet). Its best and NH207 is in very good condition. You also get the option of break points at Dobbaspet (Kamat and CCD).

Stick to the NH207-Devanahalli-Dodballapur-Nelamangala-NH48-Hassan-Belur-Chikmagalur.I found this route to be faster than the Kadur route and better wayside facilities.Nelamangala-CKM took us 4hrs and Shamshabad-Devanahalli:6.5hrs and 1hr for Devanahalli-Nelamangala.Plenty of eating options on the Nelamangala-Hassan stretch.

Thanks Ranjith & Ampere for your suggestions..

So, for the Nelamangala route do we have to go through Yelahanka and Bangalore interiors to get onto the Hassan route ?

I am trying to avoid the rush hour traffic from Devanahalli after 6 PM as I had terrible experience in the past. The tumkur -Kadur stretch looks like a good option to beat the traffic...what do you suggest ?

No on nH7,you take a right at Devanahalli onto NH207(this is after the Nandi Hills signal intersection)(you would see trucks coming onto NH7 and cutting across and going towards Kolar at this junction).At this junction take a right and drive on it till Doddaballapur.After the railway gate,take a left onto the state road to Nelamangala.At Nelamangala this road comes up onto NH4 under a flyover.Cross the NH4 and directly merge with NH48 which is the Mangalore highway and keep on it till Hassan.At Hassan you divert right towards Belur and from there its one straight road.

How good or bad is Doddaballapur-Nelamangala section. Once I did only half till that railway crossing from Nelamanagala. Found it a bit rough, but definitely much more peaceful than going through the city.

Its good enough for a state highway,hardly any traffic except short bursts of truck traffic now and then.easily done in 45-60mins the entire stretch.

Thanks. Thats exactly what we need. A nice peaceful way to bypass Bangalore without getting into the city. As I mentioned earlier, why I like this SH the best is because, once you get into Nelamangala town and while you near NH4, the SH nicely goes below NH4 and transforms into Hassan 4-lane.

Hi,
My relatives are traveling Hyderabad - Chikmagalur in the coming week. Based on earlier posts here in this thread, I gather that the best route is NH207-Devanahalli-Dodballapur-Nelamangala-NH48-Hassan-Belur-Chikmagalur. Can anyone please confirm condition of the the above route since the post recommending this route was made a year back?

Thanks,
Jacob

The road is quite good with some portions around Doddaballpur-Nelamangala. Surely worth taking to beat the Bangalore traffic.
