Yeah. There are three things men bow to - Kids, Wife and Employer! Two of them are the reason I am going this place Thanks for the response.

You can visit the Tibetan settlement and monstery at Bylakuppe on the way to Kushalnagar.
...
If you plan to start by 7am, expect slow traffic upto Srirangapatna/Mysore.
Suggest you start earlier by 6 at least. That way you can stop at Maddur for breakfast - Thimmadas on left side and Adigas on right side, both are good. Avoid the food courts that have come up on this stretch!
Thanks NPV. I will take this route. When we went to 10th anniversary drive, remember going through the patch you mentioned. It was bad then but we drove through and no issues. So I will take my chance this time. Since its friday and festival time, I think people will be busy at home and not on roads except petrol-heads like us But I will try to leave as early as possible. With two kids (aged about 8yrs and 1.5yrs) to company, nothing is sure to work as planned! But having said that, I shall not fail to plan. Let the plan fail!

So for an update - I took this trip on August 8 and 9. Compiled the tlog here - http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/travel...hant-camp.html (Meeting the Elephants - Family overnighter at Dubare Elephant Camp)

Thanks NPV for route suggestion. The roads were good except the patch you mentioned. But that is still doable in 20Kmph speed. Its hardly a kilometer so, bearable.
