If its your first time to Mangalore try the Gadbad icecream at Ideal.www.idealicecream.in or a visit to Pabbas
Thanks for the info Ranjit. I am right now in Goa staying in Calangute and driving to Udupi (60 Kms ahead of Mangalore) tomorrow morning. Can you please tell me which are the good, the bad and the ugly stretches? I am particularly worried about the Bhatkal Maravanthe stretch as it was worse than ugly the last time I travelled last year.

Overall good.the bhatkal stretch has been relaid.no problems till kundapur after which widening is in progress . Since you have to go till udupi only not much of a problem.

Yes roads are broken up especially between Ankola and Kundapur.Pumpwell(Mangalore) to Kali Bridge Karwar took around 6hours after the rains.

Asking for my manager.

He's planning to drive from Mangalore to Goa sometime in October. What is the route? How are the roads? Road conditions must be bad right now?

On a lighter noteI hope road conditions wouldnt affect your appraisal

As for the route no other route other than NH17 and kundapur to ankola is all bad at the moment.ankola onwards its good.

Hi,
Planning a long road trip from Bangalore to Madikeri and then onward to Goa and Pune for december. Just wanted to know the best route to take from Madikeri to Palolem.
Reading about NH-17 not being in good condition. So was thinking of taking the Kushalnagar- arsikere- shimoga- honnavar route. Dont mind extra km. Only road conditions need to be good. Travelling with kids in an innova.

thanks

Any updates on stretch between Kundapur and Bhatkal? Mangalore to Kundapur is good and Bhatkal to Goa is reported to be good too... But the worry is the 90 kms odd between Kundapur and Bhatkal...Any one been through recently?

The roads were patched during last year but now a days almost from Murudeshwar to Baindur road is bit rough to drive at even 60. Especially after Shirali till Bhatkal (5 Kms) is worst.

Hi Guys,
Planning to drive down to Mangalore this month end from Mapusa Goa. What is the current road conditions and how much time it will take? Are there any interesting things to see en route or around Mangalore. I am travelling with family and have 4 days to spare.

Road all the way is good , but expect to encounter road widening around Karwar onwards till Kundapur. Nothing to worry about but a minor irritant as it is not condusive to all out comfortable cruising. From Kundapur till Mangalore it is wide 4 laned. You can expect 7 hours time with a half hour food break in between.
You will pass numerous beaches enroute Palolem, Karwar, Gokarna,(detour 10 kms) Murudeshwar, Marawanthe,Malpe(4 kms detour from highway)and St marys island , Kaup . All worth visiting . At Gokarna and Murudeshwar you will find quaint Temple towns.

Around Mangalore you have lots of temples,Beaches,Icecream(Pabbas) , Mangaloean , udupi and Sea food cuisine, beaches,boat cruises ( for a person from Goa it is daily affair),Pilikula zoo,lake and water park is a attraction for family and kids, Chruches etc.

A drive to Kudremukh hill station and scantuary is worth the effort.

Boat house stay on backwaters at Kasargod and Nileshwar is unique experience.

Chikmaglur, Sakleshpur and Madikeri with its coffee and tea estates is a days getwaway and enjoyable on its own.

Enjoy your drive and stay

I have just done Mapusa to Udupi last week. It was roughly 330 km each way. From Mapusa to the Goa border the road is smooth, occasionally 4-laned. When it's two lanes , one tends to get stuck behind slow traffic, and you can expect an average 40 k.p.h. on this 100 km stretch. From the Goa border to Karwar it broadens to 4 lanes, but only upto Karwar limits, so about 15 kms. From then on for the next 180-odd km the road is being widened so one has to constantly zigzag from left to right. Traffic is sparse beyond Karwar and one can average 65 kph with ease. Around 30 km before Udupi, the proper 4 lane highway starts, and it's a delight. 100kph average for this section. It took me around 7 hours each way, with a couple of stops for coffee and snacks.
