Default Planning 2 day trip in karnataka--Need help

I am planning a 2(+~ 1) day trip along with my friends.

We wish to cover the following places


Kemmangundi-->Chikmaglur-->Shringeri-->Udupi-->Murudeshwara.

If time permits we also want to cover jog falls too.

Suggestion from my friend is as follows

Day1:Leave bangalore in the evening,Stay at kemmangundi.

Day2:Finish with kemmangundi and hebbe falls by 12~1 and go to chikmaglur.Finish with chikmaglur by 6 and leave to shringeri.
If time permits travel till udupi or call it for the day at shringeri.

Day3:Finish with udupi by noon and leave to murudeshwar .After this its not planned.

Day4:We need to return back to bangalore by 2pm.(I think if we extend this day we can cover jog falls)

Gurus please help us here.Want to know the driving directions and time required to cover those areas.

Cheers,
zoomingbhat

You would be reaching Kemmanagundi pretty late at night and the climb uphill is not so great.

You need at least 6-7 hrs to each Bangalore from Murudeshwar. So plan accordingly.
Jog falls is enroute Bangalore, so you need not worry too much about time to deviate.

Hope this helps.
Cheers.

I suggest this route and places:

1. Day 1 leave Bangalore in the morning at 6 AM or 7 AM and reach KemmanGundi by 2PM. Bangalore - Hassan - Chikamagalur - KaiMara - KemmanGundi (300km). I suggest stay in GreenDale (its VFM considerring good food and accomadation and wonderfull nature view!) which itself is excellant place to enjoy! Same day afternoon you can cover Mullayana Giri and Seetalayana Giri which would give you excellant trekking experience in reains with dense FOG. Watch out for leeches.

2. Day 2 Leave Kemmangundi at 8AM itself and In suggest avoid Hebbe Falls because you need to go by Jeep and in rainy season its very difficult to visit that place. Instead cover Dattatreya Peeta and Manikyadhara falls, KemmanGundi Raj Bhavan area like Shanti Falls, Z point (please avoid trekking in Z point in rainy season). Carefull about leeches. It would be 3PM by the time you cover these places considerring bad road condition with ghat. From there travel to Tarikere -> Shimoga and stay in the Hotel Jewel Rock ( which has good food with best accomodation). Its 3 hours drive to Shimoga from Kemmangundi.

3. Day 3 Leave Shimoga early and take Sagar road and take left in ayanur to Kollur via ribbonpet - hosanagara - nagara - nagodi - kodachadri - kollur and take Devi darshan and proceed further to Murdeshwar, here I suggest you try visiting Maravanthe beach which is worth (might take extra 2 hours to cover that). Shimoga to Kollur would take 2 and half hours and visting maravanthe beach 2 hours on the way and have lunch in Murdeshwar and spend 2 hours and proceed towards Shimoga via Honnavar - Jog - Sagar - shimoga and by 7PM you can reach Shimoga.

Shimoga - Kollur = 150km
Kollur - Maravanthe beach = 50km
Maravanthe beach - byndoor - Bhatkal - Murdeshwar = 80km
Murdeshwara - Honnavar - Jog - sagar - Shimoga = 200km Here if its getting too late stay in Sagar which has quiet ok hotel so you can save 70km on day3.

Day 4 If you cover on day 3 like I mentioned you can easily reach Bangalore by 2pm.

If you stay in Murdeshwara on Day3 also thats fine you can drive back to Bangalore come via jog falls and its right time to visit since its raining now. this year we cant expect reservoir to get filled so no way to release the water in near future unless some miracle happens by rain GOD. If time is not wasted in between and you leave murdeshwara by 6am sharp you can reach Bangalore by 3pm by coverring Jog Falls on the way.

If you avoid Kemmangundi you can cover Udupi. But right now I suggest Kemmangundi rather than Udupi.

Hope this helps. Call me or Pm me for any help!

Regards,

Ravi.
