My friend did say he took another route on the return journey so that he could board the ferry, probably my post wasn't very clear . Will find out the details soon.

This was on the wishlist/plan during our visit, but could not do it, definitely next time and hopefully roads around the place will improve as well.

I think you can go till Mani and come back. But beyond Mani, the road to Hulikal, I know it exists. But I am not sure about it. Its quite desolate out there. Drive to Mani itself is about 25 km from Thirthahalli-Agumbe road. And its quite lonely.

As to Mani I had posted a couple of snaps earlier. Here cross linking the same.

Which is the best route to go to Kollur now? Is the Shimoga - Hosanagar route better or going through Mangalore better? If the Shimoga route is taken, how is the road condition after deviating from NH-206?

The roads till Hosanagar is good but its a single way with very less traffic. You should be very careful whenever any of the private busses passes you.

After Nittur almost till Kollur road condition is bad but can be driven at an average speed of 30.

The best is :

Shimoga-Theerathahalli-Agumbe-Someshwar-Vandse-Kollur. Belter of a road till Agumbe; decent ghat roads to Someshwar, average roads to Vandse and then again belter till Kollur.

When you say bad, is it motorable for a low slung car like city? is the road very potholed? Approx how many KMs are potholed? All the way to the temple?

Dont take the Nittur road. It much better to go via Agumbe. Any specific reason why you were looking to go via Nittur?

It is in drivable condition with some potholes for about 30 to 40 Kms distance. Also As Amepere suggested you can also take Agumbe route via Shimoga or another route

Bangalore -> Hassan -> Belur -> Sringeri -> Agumbe -> Halady -> Kollur.

+1 to @meetbadri.

You can either go either via Shimoga to Agumbe or via Shringeri.
I think Shirgeri route would be a bit shorter, but has more winding roads, while Shimoga is has much more straighter roads.

Recently I did Byse, Hosanagar, Shimoga, Bangalore. You can check this route too. I would say only few KM is bad before Hosanagar.
If you like to do some experiment then you can also choose the Sagar-Sigandure road and cross the ferry. After that its just a few KM to Kollur !

All roads are good.

Thanks, it seemed like the route to Agumbe via Shimoga was longer by about 30-40 KMs.

True. But its condition is very good. It makes for a very pleasant drive. Of source so is the Aldur, Balehonnur-Sringeri stretch. May be try one while going and the other while coming back.

One query on this route - do I have to go via Chikmagalur to go from Belur to Aldur? I believe there is a route via Gendehalli. Any idea how it is?

Yes, the road to Aldur from Belur goes via Chikkamagulur. You will have to take it.

I have to go to Byndoor (this weekend). From the last a few pages from Bangalore-Mangalore thread, is Shiradi ghat my best option? Last time (2 yrs) I went through Shimoga - Nagara - Kollur - Byndoor but the road was narrow (sometimes passing a bus is a lot of work) and some patches were bad. This road is shorter than via Mangalore but google map suggests it'll take an hour less because better average speed.
