I am confused. you took green route or blue route? Photo represent which part of the segment? By your post I understand its between Bangalore ~ Shimoga!

Why from Someshwara you go to halady , Siddapura and then to Kundapura? From Halady you can reach directly reach Kundapura (via Koteshwara or Basrur).

Any specific reason for taking such a long winding route?

The following route is only 425kms: Bengaluru, Karnataka to Kundapura, Karnataka - Google Maps

I used the blue route, but suggest the green arrow marking, the last arrow was unwanted or should be pointing towards Kundapur, from Halady hit Basrur and then Kundapur thats correct & good road.

The pic is somewhere before getting down the ghat section inbetween Hosangadi and Yadur.

I started from Electronic City - Nice road - to reach NH4, guess I spent my extra 40-50km there.

BTW the route that you attached is it possible in any non Hummer H3 type vehicle? till Chikmagalore I know its driveable, but cutting across Bhadra WILDlife Sanctuary?

I did that in my 2 day old i10 AT two months back. So, yeah. It is in pretty good shape.

CKM-Aldur-Balehonnur-Jayapura-Sringeri-Agumbe is a proper road, any hatch easily do it.

Now I understand. The bus route is worse than stated in the picture. As i stated in my previous post, between Hulikal and Basrur was worst. Is it patched now? In Jan when I took this route I couldn't travel more than 20kmph! As you put it is adventures!

+1. Road via Balehonnur , Sriengeri Agumbe is bets route to Kundapura. Its full of greenary (not sure in summer), You have plenty of shades, very less traffic. It was in better state even in peak monsoon. Only point is its too much twist and turns. So if you are going with elders and children, you may need to slowdown! This road from Nice road entrance PESIT to Shastri park Kundapur is 440km! Google shows 417km though!

Right, It's in best possible condition as of now. Most of the road has been relaid n re tarred.
Just one scary hump before the Jenubailu bridge. Rest is in superb condition.
I had taken this route last friday till Agumbe

how is the condition of the road from mangalore to udupi? Too many potholes or is it a smooth ride.
This time around I am staying in mangalore and will have to commute to udupi a few times.

M'lore - Udupi, the road conditions are good all the way, but there is work going on for 4 lane, so watch out for few diversions.

To add to Jmarurs info.

Avoid peak hours and night driving in this stretch.

Also people coming using BC road flyover(i,e Blore-Mlore) be cautious while you ascend as the intail part of the ramp was not completed at the side, though i dont know the current state. 2weeks back it was not completed and the flyover was functional.
certainly can be rated as one of the worst flyover.

I plan to do Koramangala-Yeswantpur-Nelamangala-Kunigal-Hassan-Mangalore next week by car.

Or is it better to go via Magadi ?

Requesting some advice

mooza i would suggest you stick to the plan, Magadi will take more time.

However you want to enjoy the good old 2lane highway then it is Magadi

Suggesting to avoid Yeshwantpur metro work bottleneck unless you wish to cross Y'pur before 7am.

Koaramangala - through city / GPO - Hebbal - BEL circle - Goraguntepalya - Nelamangala toll road

OR

Koramangala - City Rly stn - Magadi road - turn right to ring road after kamakshipalya - Rajkumar samadhi - Goraguntepalya - toll road


During peak hours, the best / fastest option, though very long would be the NICE road.

Hope this helps..

How about metro construction on Magadi road?
That was also bad some time back. Has it improved off late?
