Question Hyderabad to Shimoga Query/ Road Conditions

A friend is planning to drive down to Shimoga from Hyderabad this weekend. From a little bit of reading, I guess he has a few route options:

1. Via Gooty-Bellary
2. Via Raichur- Hospet-Davangere

Now I have the following queries:

1. Any other route options?
2. What are the distances/ travel time for each of the routes?
3. Road condition

Travel time is important since he is travelling with his dad and can not drive non-stop for very long. Help

Distance chart:

Hyderabad-Kurnool 215 kms-Gooty 100-Guntakal 30-Bellary 55-Tornagallu 30-Sandur 20-Harpanahalli 45-Harihar 45-Simoga 80

totalling 620 kms, which is a full day's drive.
You can expect terrible roads between Guntakal and Bellary, roads may be bad around Sandur too.

I have not driven via Raichur to Hospet, but am told that the road via Raichur till Hospet is good, after which you can take NH13 till Harpanahalli and go to Harihar.

Facilities are poor.

Thanks hvkumar. 620 Kms......hmmm, might be too much at one stretch, I guess.

- Hyd-Goothy : 4-lane
- Goothy - Guntakal - Bellary : Reasonably OK. It used to be worse but it has improved quite a lot after the mining activities stopped.

(Post is dated 2012).

- Bellary - Chalkere : Decent SH roads. Humps around villages.
- Chalkere-Chitradurga : No idea
- Chitradurga - Shimoga : Decent NH13.

I am planning to drive from Sringeri to Hyderabad next month and any update on the latest road conditions will be highly appreciated. As I see from Google Maps, there are three routes. The shortest seems to be via Gangavathi and Raichur. Another route is via Bellary and Gooty. The best road seems to be via Tumkur, Dodballapur and then NH44, but this route is almost 160 kms longer. I would prefer to do this drive over two days, so any suggestions on where to stop for the night would be welcome. Thanks!

I think best would be:

Sringeri-Koppa-NR Pura - Bhadra - Channagiri - Chitradurga - Hospet - Gangavathi - Raichur - Mehboobnagar - Hyderabad.

What I would suggest is instead of driving in one day, start easy on day one and break at Hospet. You find decent hotels in there too.

For good roads,my recco would be to take the route via Bangalore.Day 1 you could either stay at Tumkur or at Bangalore and day 2 to Hyderabad.
