I'll agree with Samurai,
Returned today morning from Native. Also had been near agumbe on Friday,
The route Magadi-Kunigal-C.R.Patna-Hassan-Belur-Chikmaglur-Balehonnur-Jayapur-Sringeri-Agumbe- is GOOD.
Except for road widening work between Kunigal - Bellur cross.

Most places before Tumkur. You have Kamat and CCD. (Kamat is available on both sides of the road).

The first Kamat you get while going towards Tumkur, is on the right side of the highway, 2Km after Dobbaspet.

I have seen Kamats [Upachar and Lokaruchi] on both the sides of Bangalore - Mysore State Highway 17. But, on NH 4, Kamat Upachar is located on the right side when you go from Bangalore, near Dobbaspet. Have they opened on the other side too recently?

Thanks to Samurai and Sushrutha for the update on the road -- to Udupi-- condition, and to Ampere for the info on eating joints at Tumkur.

For my weekend trip to Udupi, I think I will go with the Chikamaglur, Ballehonnur route.

Starting on Saturday Morning June 12 early morning and will head toward Kunigal via the NICE Road.

If the highlighted one is priority, Then only Cafe Coffeeday after Dobaspete comes to my mind. After Tumkur there arent many good eating joints with decent rest rooms.

Default Karkala route condition

I am planning a trip to Karkala in the next 10 days. I am clear till Hasan. Any suggestions from there on to reach Karkala. Also some details on road conditions will be helpful.

3 options from Hassan

1. Hassan-Sakleshpur-Gundya-Dharmasthala-Ujire-Guruvayanakere-Karkala. This is the straightforward route via Shiradi ghat. Road conditions are good

2. Hassan-Belur-Gonibeedu-Mudigere Hand Post-Kottigehara-Charmadi-Ujire-Guruvayanakere-Karkala. This goes through the scenic Charmadi ghats. Road conditions are good.

3. Hassan-Belur-Mudigere hand post-Kottigehara-Kalasa-Kudremukh-SK Border-Karkala. This route passes through the Kudremukh National Park. The Road conditions are supposed to be good as per latest updates on the forum (for all 3 routes). Please be aware that you have cross Kudremukh within 2 hours of entering it.

All the routes are almost the same distance from Hassan. So, you will not gain any advantage distance-wise. I would suggest either route 2 or route 3. Both of them are scenic.

Belur to Mudigere, there is an alternative route. Beur-Gendehally-Mudigere. It is narrow, but road conditions are good.

Weather in Kemmangundi should be cool and rains must have started (not sure though). It is around 100kms from Hassan with around 70 kms of good roads. You should be able to visit in a day. You can also visit Baba Budangiri and Mullianagiri on the way.

Route from Bangalore

Bangalore-Magadi-Kunigal-Channarayapatna-Hassan

Hassan-Belur-Chikmagalur-Kaimara (take left here)-Mullianagiri-Bababudangiri-Kemmangundi. Rough roads start from Kaimara.

Kemmangundi-Kalhattigiri falls-Lingadahalli-Santaveri-Chikmagalur. You can take this road for the return journey. It is faster and the road from Lingadahalli to Chikmagalur is very good.

Hemavathi Dam in Gorur is around 23 kms from Hassan. In Hassan, take a left from the Santhepete Circle on the main BM Road. The initial 2 kms are pathetic and from thereon it is manageable till Gorur. This time of the year, there will be very little water. The best time would be mid-August when the dam would be full.

I might probably go there tomorrow. Expect some updates on Monday.

For more info on these places, refer the following thread

Wow, thanks. I have trekked in those places but not knowledgeable about the road directions. So can we drive to this trio "Mullianagiri-Bababudangiri-Kemmangundi" directly from b'lore? Because we thought we could stay that day in chikmagalur and proceed to hassan next day.

Hi Guys, traveling to Udupi tomorrow early morning. I am clear from Magadi road but had a query regarding the connectivity to Magadi road.

I stay close by to NICE road and can join from Kanakapura road side. But I am not sure where will it join near Magadi road. Is it after Magadi town or well before it? I would like to avoid the town and hence checking if taking the nice road will help or is it better to go thru Majestic itself?
