But you are right they may be flying as there is a helipad in Shimoga.
Most of the time he uses Train ( Shimoga express). I have seen him boarding the train often.

He might have felt train is safer than the Raod. As we know how our Cabbies are Driving.

Ok, I need to go to Lakkavalli (JLR) from Tirthahalli side. Do I take right at Mandagadde towards Muthinakoppa, then Umbalebilu and then Lakkavalli?

Don't feel like taking the roundabout way of Shimoga-Bhadrvathi-Tarikere and then backtrack.

Judging from the map Lakkavalli is closer than Shimoga. I just need to get the right road and not lose my way.

PM Sowmya, he travelled from the Lakkavalli side to Mandagadde.
River Tern Lodge is awesome, when are you going there?

Well, I am already back.

How to go to River Tern Lodge or Tarikere from Tirthahalli via Lakkavalli.

About 27-28Kms from Tirthahalli, there is a village called Muduba. Turn right into a forest gate there, half a KM later turn left and you will reach Muthinakoppa within 4Kms. At Muthinakoppa at the T junction, turn left towards Umblebail, which is 16Kms away. At Umblebail, turn right at the circle (directions are shown here) towards Lakkavalli which is 18Kms away. After crossing Kuvempu University and Bhadra Dam, turn right towards River Tern and follow the directions at every turn. If you keep going straight after crossing Bhadra dam ignoring River Tern lodge, you will end up hitting Bhadravathi-Bangalore highway just before Tarikere.

Only the 4Km stretch between Muduba & Muthinakoppa is bad, I still managed 40-50 top speed. Rest of the stretch is pretty ok, no problem for cars.

The way back I took a completely different route, kind of uncharted on the map, even local tourist Jeep drivers didn't know about it. For that you have to wait for the report.

Nice to see that you have traveled this way. Near future this might be one of the root to reach Tirthahalli. If they improve the road a bit i think this will be a great drive.

Guys need advice to go to Thirthahalli.

I came to know that the best route to go is Bangalore - Tumkur- Chitradurga - Chenagiri - Bhadravathi - Thirthahalli. This route is longer by 25 km compared to the route over tiptur-arsikere-kadur. but the chitradurga route is a highway.

Advise Required. Thanks in advance.

I think the Tumkur-Kadur-Birur-Bhadra-Shimoga stretch has been relaid is also in very giood condition. Even that route is good. Just the Tumkur by-pass to Nh206 is not all that great.

Ampere is right. Just go through NH 216 via Tumkur - Tiptur - Kadur - Birur - Shimoga. It is in excellent condition with no traffic. It is shorter by 30 KMs alos help avoid going through Chitradurga and Shimoga towns. The route via Chitradurga is also good. The choice is upto you.

Thanks Ampere & Fauji for your advice. I might take the Chitradurga route reason being i am leaving Bangalore at 3 am and i feel the national highway will be better to commute due to security reasons.

I agree with Fauji. I made this trip on 28th April and returned back on 1st May. The road is very nice throughout. Watch out for speed breakers between Arsikere and Shimoga Bypass. Though there are signs on the road, if you are traveling at high speeds, you may miss the boards and in the process have a bone jarring experience. The road from Shimoga bypass to Tirthahalli is very scenic. Enjoy the drive.

I been in route suggested by Fuji On Apr 22 and 23rd. I believe at 3 AM route is equally good like Chitradurga road. But choice is yours. Remember Chitradurga road will have trucks traveling gr8 sub 40 speed trying to overtake each other blocking your traffic all together!
