Hi Team,

Travelled to Mangalore last weekend on KSRTC Rajahamsa bus. All KSRTC buses now travel through Mysore-Madikeri route. While booking the ticket, eventhough the route suggests via Hassan, all buses take the Madikeri route. Looks like the Shiradi Ghat route is exclusively for the mining lorries

The bus left Bangalore at 9.45pm and reached Mangalore bus stand at 6.45am. On the return journey, the bus left Mangalore at 10.30pm and reached Bangalore at 9.30am (the driver was in no hurry at all)

Prabhu some buses are using Charmadi route, esp in the morning.

I think shiradi can be a good venue for a offraod meet

Great to hear that Madikeri-Sullia stretch is now relaid. When I travelled in October last year, this stretch was in bad condition.

Default Request for update

Hi guys,
I intend to travel to Mangalore this weekend.
Is the Bengaluru-Mysore-Madikeri route still good
or do I need to change routes ?
Thanks.

Sign up is not enough to gain access to the info, i have to be part of the group. Anyways, now need to think of alternatives. As i had to head towards belthangady, charmadi was the right option. Madikeri is circuituous routing.
