Hey Ampere,

Yeah we do know that we can't enjoy the scenery/greenery when travelling during the night but we want to reach C'magalur early and catch the sunrise and enjoy the mist

The route you suggested is the same as I had in my mind too
  • Bhadra reserve forest any good?
  • Any decent homestay options?

Thanks.

Hi,
We stayed at a homestay called Thotadahalli Homestay during May 2015. It is very near to Mullayanagiri and is very good. But do not know whether they are open to singles. We went there as a family group.

Most homestays charge rates per person per night and as a family it will make a big dent on the pocket. A 4 member family will have to shell out 6000 bucks approx a day, which is quite high.

How did the Thodahalli HS charge you?

@ JohnnyBoss:

Same as above - Rs.3000/- per day per person. Quite expensive - but had to buckle down in the interests of the other members travelling along.

I am planning to go to Chikmagalur this weekend. Plan is to leave Bangalore by 7 AM on saturday morning and reach back by sunday night 10 PM.

Which is the most scenic route to take there and how is the present road condition of that route?

I was planning as below:
Bangalore - Hassan - Belur - Chikmagalur - Mullayngiri - Bababudangiri - Kemmangundi

Come back via Banavara - Arsikere - Tiptur - Tumkur

This is the fastest route.

A two lane highway. But since you plan to return late, just wondering if you would be able to enjoy this section.

Also just a day for Chikkamagalur may not be fun. Make it an extended weekend if possible by taking a Friday or Monday off.

Unfortunately taking a day off is not an option. With the limited time period, what are the places that we have to visit and which should be left out?

If you want to enjoy the scenery, you shouly try Blore - Arsikere - Tarikere - Chikmagalur (Mullayanagiri & BabaBudangiri) then return via Belur- Hassan-CR Patna - Blore.

I have done Blore-Tumkur-Arsikere - Tarikere-Baba Budangiri-Chikmagalur-Tarikere-Bhadravati-Arsikere-CR Patna-Blore in a single day; with attending a wedding lunch at Bhadravati. It is certainly doable in a day but you'll need two drivers atleast ( I was driving alone and the last 150KMs were truly tiring)

One day halt at Chikmagalur/Kemmannagundi is seriously recommended.

Cool Road condition Bangalore Hassan Chickmagaluru

Hi
I am planning to drive to Chickmagaluru from Bangalore early next week for some R&R. Has anybody been on this route recently? How is the road condition? Which would be the best route? Bangalore Kunigal Hassan Chickmagaluru?
Or via Mysuru Hassan?
Or via Tumkuru and Arsikere?
Any suggestions?

See the posts in this thread. Bangalore-Hassan-Belur-Chikkamagulur is the fastest option. Bangalore-Hassan is a 4-lane now.

Disclaimer : I have not stayed at any of the mentioned homestays. Just mentioning based on the reviews I saw on Tripadvisor and TBHP when I did a research for my planned trip for July second week.

The top rated homestay is Thotadhahalli home stay, it has good reviews in TBHP too. However I am not sure if you will be able to get rooms in short notice since I had checked in vain for a date one month in advance.

Next comes Thippanahalli home stay, this is on way from Chickmanglur to Mullayanagiri and overlook the hill. We have booked our stay here.

Both the places charge around 3000 per head per day inclusive of all meals.
