I did this route last week on my way back from Kundapura and would vote it anyday over the other one. Road surface is excellent almost all the way, not to mention the beautiful vistas that keep you company.

Agreed - excellent stopover option for a quick coffee/dose etc. Neat restroom too. It is just before Balehonnur town while going from C'magalur to Sringeri.

Default Re: Bangalore to Kollur Mookambika : Route Queries

Hello, I'm looking to travel to Kollur from Bangalore the coming weekend. A few years back I had taken the Arsikere - Shivamogga - Thirthahalli - Kollur route and found that to be tiring.

How is the Nelamangala - Kunigal - Hassan - Chickmagaluru - Aldur - Balehonnur - Agumbe - Halady - Vandse - Kollur route for travel these days? I'm travelling with my family and two toddlers, so any recommendations on places to stopover for breakfast and lunch would be very helpful. I'm leaving the coming saturday, and planning to leave around 4am.

The road is good, and you do 250 Kms (Chikmagaluru) in about 4 Hours with Breaks.

Beyond Chikmagalur too the road is in good shape, with Agumbe getting a fresh layer. However, not everyone (including the co-passengers here) would love to sit on twisty roads that last for at least 3 hours till you reach your destination.

Instead, the other route via Shimoga would be better as the Ghats are less and many prefer that.

In short, if road conditions is what you wanted to know - Have no doubts about it, Its all good, end to end via Agumbe route too.

On Breaks:

Since you start at 0400 am, you can plan to have breakfast (an early one) at Hassan (Raama Hotel) or Chikmagalur - Planters Court will be on the way to Mudigere while Town Canteen (Famous for Dosas) will be on the other end of the town. Few near the Bust Stand (IG Road) are: Soundarya and Annapurna.

Beyond Chikmagalur, your options will be very less barring few coffee shops that also serve snacks which I guess can serve for quick breaks - One of them that most BHPians visit is Bhadra Stop Coffee Shop before Balehonnur on your right.

Did Kollur during the weekend. Trusted google maps and took the Davangere route on Saturday morning, started from JP Nagar at 5 am through NICE and reached Kollur at noon 12.15 with around 1 hour break. Took the same route on Sunday, started at 8.45 am and reached at 3.10 pm with . Stayed in Jyothis residency, it is a new place located close to the temple, would recommend this place for modern facilities, proximity to the temple, parking etc.

Did you take the Harihar (bypass)-Honnali-Hosanagar-Kollur route ?
Please share a map link if possible for the route you took. Also a road conditions update will help too

Looks like he took the Davanagere - Honnali - Ayanur section. Distance wise not a big delta. Max about 20-25km which can be easily covered along the 4-lane. Would be great to know the current status of the non 4-lane section beyond Davanagere.

Amp, last month I was casually talking to a colleague who had taken Shimoga Honalli Harihar for his drive to Dharwad then. I was surprised that he referred to the road conditions as "First Class" with only a very short stretch to be bad.

Exactly an year back while I waited for my folks to arrive by bus at Harihar from Belur, they told how terribly bad the road was and it was back breaking!

So last Sunday my friend returned via this route from Kundapura to touchdown at Harihar and then continue towards Bangalore on experimental basis and he too reported the same, that the road was good with the small bad patch still bad.

So I too presume that things should be better now with this stretch but I would love to know how much was bad if at all there was any stretch.

Edit - Just checked and he said road from where it says 15kms to Harihar was bad. But the bad was again manageable with small potholes here and there. Rest all was good.

Below link has the route I took. Roads are excellent except for a rough patch of around 5 kms after you exit the 4 lane. I think this is the fastest option to Kollur. Traffic was little heavy from Tumkur on the way back, but could do in decent time. There are enough food options on the way.

I too followed Google maps and took this route to Kollur on April end (long weekend). The single lane from Harihar (exit 4 lane after Davengere) to Arasalu was void of any traffic and the road is superb, though a bit narrow for initial 20kms or so.

Thanks for that update
Seems like a great option to completely bypass Shivamogga and head to the Ayanur-Ripponpet-Hosanagara route to Kollur.

Looking at the map, there are quite a few junctions and turns en route (after turning off from the NH48) - are they well signaged or will one need to reply on GPS/maps navigation ?

I relied completely on Google maps for the trip. I remember seeing signboards, but there weren't many pointing to Kollur till the last leg. GPS is the best bet on this route is my take.

The Ayanur exit on NH206 is not clearly marked if my memory serves me right. And since the road is not wide, it can easily be missed out. Rest seem to be OK. Also once past Ayanur there are not too many people on this road.

Is the Davangere - Shivamogga - Rittponpet route quicker or the Kunigal - Chanrayapattana - Bhadravati - Shivamogga - route quicker t o reach Kollur? I am planning to go straight to Kollur from Bangalore. Start time is approximately 10 AM.

Davangere is quicker from my experience. I could do it in around 7.5 hrs with 45 mts break with a 5 am start, You can expect more traffic with a 10 am start.
