I think the following are good options for devanahalli to hosur:
1. Take the BIAL Road to Mandur, Budigere cross and reach old madras road, turn left and take next right below flyover onto the varthur road via sai baba Ashram. Go past hope farm and continue towards varthur and you get to attibele via sarjapur police station. There on continue on hosur road.

2. From devanahalli take NH 207 all the way to Hoskote, merge onto old madras road and continue on other side of 207 all the way to Bagalur and you reach at Hosur just opposite the bus stand.

*same starting point for both 207 and BIAL Road - proceed on the road opposite devanahalli police station. 3-4 km later BIAL Road forks to right and straight is 207.

There is one more option. BIAL to Yelahanka to Jalahalli HMT road and join NH4. Take right turn to outer ring road. In outer ring road take the NICE road exit just before PESIT and from there on to NH7. Might sound complicated but free flowing all through except for the right turn from NH4 towards ORR

NICE option wont work. Just take NH207 all the way from Devanahalli to Hosur via Hoskote, Sarjapur and Bagalur. Account for about 2 hours for a distance of 90km.

Not at all worth it. Broken Varthur road, possible jams around Forum mall and last but not least, you still hit Atibelle only.

Yes this is the ONLY solution.

Again not worth it. For the same reason that you only end up at Electronic city. That means you still have cross Atibelle toll and truck traffic at the state border.

Looks like NH207 is the best option at present.
But the this route does have quite a few acute turns, hope they are reasonably identifiable lest you end up spending time to retrace your path!!

Have Google maps handy and just follow NH207 to the end. It will lead you to Hosur.

- It cuts NH4 4-lane at Hoskote
- There are few 90 degree turns as well beyond Hoskote
- When you hit Sarjapur, you hit one of "Y" arms of the fork. So you almost have to take a U to be on NH207. Else you go into Sarjapur town, which you should not.
- At Baglur you hit the T-Junction. Take right here.

Dear All,

I am planning Hyderabad to Madurai road trip later this month. I understand from these posts that NH207 is best option to bypass Bangalore. Since I will be traveling with kids, I am yet to decide if I should halt in Bangalore or push all the way to Madurai all the way.

Can you let me know the best locations (close to NH207) to look for a hotel if we have to halt in Bangalore? The idea then is to spend the night there and start again the next morning.

Thank you all for your help.

Hyderabad to Bangalore will be a 6-7 hour drive depending on time you start and breaks taken. Bangalore-Madurai will take another 6-8 hours so you are looking easily at a 12+ hour drive, not sure if you can do that with a child on board.

If you take the NH 207 to bypass Bangalore and reach Hosur, better to look for a hotel there. Sarovar Portico in Hosur is decent but you will have to drive a bit towards the opposite direction to reach the place from Hosur Bus Stand.

Or you could drive further from Hosur to Krishnagiri and stay here (Bangalore - Chennai - Bangalore : Route Queries)

+1 to NPV

Madurai would a tiring drive for a day. Best would be to take a break at Hosur where NH207 ends. That way you are past Bangalore and can exit the hotel easily the next day.

You have Sarovar and Cenneys (recently opened) at Hosur. Do check them.

Parag ... I tried to map this route and Nelamangala to Neligare ultimately came through Gudemaranahalli which you mentioned should be avoided.
Instead were you suggesting Nelamangala -> Continue on NICE ring road -> exit at Magadi road -> Magadi -> Kunigal -> Neligere (GM route link)?

But this is getting to about 280kms vis-a-vis 215kms through SH17/NH275, will it be overall advantageous if I am passing through around 2pm?

Try this: Route Link

Devanahalli-Doddaballapur-Nelamangala-Neligere-Nagamangala-Srirangapatna-Mysore.

Doddaballapur-Nelamangala section is not that great, but should be manageable.

OK .. not going to Dobbaspet, but this again goes through Gudemaranahalli which I thought was point of contention in that discussion.
This is similar to what you had suggested as first option there.
Thanks!!

No-No. The issue is many thought of taking NH207 all the way to Dobbaspet. At Dobbaspet if you want join Bangalore-Hassan road, you have to take the state highway to Guddemaranahalli. It is this section which is very bad.

Please note Nelamangala-Hassan is a 4-laned road. There is no issue with that. The contention was the access.

So basically to summarise: Doddaballapur-Nelamangala is less worse than Dobbaspet-Guddemaranahalli. So its better to take the former option and you hit the Hassan 4-lane road at Nelamangala.

On the this 4-lane you drive till Belur Cross and exit after the toll towards Srirangapatna.

Thanks for elaboration .. got it!
I was missing that direct link between Dobbaspet & Guddemaranahalli in all these notes.

Exactly. Dabaspet-Gudemaranahalli is a strict no. I am sure this will take another few months to complete.

Also, In reality, the point (Gudemaranahalli) interection NH48 is hardly 15 minutes from Nelemanagla and never really a time saver if one wants to come from Dabaspet. This way you have not only driven further North of Bangalore (By doing DOddaballapur-Dabaspet) but also driving more on a single carriageway even beyond Dabaspet till you reach Gudemaranahalli.

Best is Doddaballapur-Nelemangala if you compare the road conditions with the other stretch.

Otherwise, Doddaballapur-Dabaspet is also a fast one due to less traffic (20 mins) and Dabaspet to Nelemangala another 20 minutes of 4 lane and lesser crowd at the JAS Toll booth here as well (since most only show receipts at this booth).

Ok .. its either (Doddaballapur -> Nelamangala) or (Doddaballapur -> Dobaspet -> Nelamangala), and then NH48.
I suppose the direct link looks fine enough, coming through Dobaspet anyway adds almost 25kms.
