This may not be the right thread since many travel only till udupi. But since there may not be dedicated thread. Wait for some experts to comment

From Sakleshpur Bisle View point is around 50 kms and the route is Sakleshpur-Donigal (Manjarabad Fort)-Byakaravalli-Hethur-Baachihalli-Vanagur Koodu Raste (Junction)-Bisle Check post-Bisle View point

The road is good upto Donigal and from there, it is a single lane road. The road is decent with very little potholes, but the road shoulders are high in many places. At Byakaravalli, you need to take right turn towards Hethur. There are a few kms of rough road here, but as you near Hethur, the road is good. After Hethur, the road is being patched up. I am not sure till where it is patched up now, but as of last weekend it was patched up to Baachihalli.

At Baachihalli, you need to go straight to Bisle View Point and at Vanagur Koodu Raste which is a junction, you need to turn right and then it is a straight road to Bisle.

For Mookana Mane Abbi falls, you need to turn right at Baachihalli (7 kms from Hethur). Approximately 8 kms from Baachihalli, you will find a dirt road to your right. This goes to the falls. This road has a couple of steep sections and there are undulations and also some rocks protruding out of the road. Last weekend, I was there and I saw an Indicab near the falls. So, I guess a Punto can make it too, but needs to be driven carefully. I went in a Qualis.

You can get some more info in my travelogue. Check the link below. I have not uploaded the recent pictures yet. Will do so in some time.

Thank you for the detailed info. How long does it take to travel from Sakleshpur - Bisle and Bisle - Mookana Mane falls?

From Sakleshpur to Bisle, it can take upto 2 hrs as the road condition is bad and from Bisle to the falls, it will be around 45 mins to an hour (distance of 27-28 kms). After Baachihalli, you face a potholed road for about 6 kms and after that, there is newly laid road which goes all the way to Hongadahalla.

One more thing, at Donigal/Manjarabad fort, you need to take a left from the highway. This road goes parallel to the highway and then goes uphill.

There are no English signboards anywhere. The signboards, if any, are all in Kannada.

Thanks Addy. I was about to ask the question about the road that goes uphill immediately after the bend near the shops on the highway. Is it also the same route to Mugilu homestay ?

Yes it is. Once you are on this road, you have deviate to another road to reach the homestay.

Addy, one more question. Are there any sign boards pointing to Mookana mane falls. Also, from Bacchihalli approx how far is the falls?

The falls is approx 8.5 kms from Baachihalli. The last half km is a dirt road.

Btw, where are you planning to stay?

Have a relatives house at Sakleshpur. This is my plan

Leave Bangalore by 4AM - Saklespur - Bisle view point - Mookana mane Abi falls - Manjarabad fort - Saklespur.

Hope fully we can do this before sundown. Am I being too optimistic?

Easily doable. Slow sections are only after Sakleshpur, so you can make up time in the morning. 4am departure from Bangalore will put you in Sakleshpur for breakfast. There on budget 2 hrs for Bisle View point

@flycatcher,
Entrance to Mookana Mane Arbi falls in on the right hand side when you're going towards Hongadahalla. Look for a dirt track on right side of the main road, with a lonely tree exactly in the middle of the track. This tree has a stone structure built around its trunk. There are two sections in this dirt track which can be tricky while climbing back up (need to maintain traction).

I did a similar trip recently. We first went to Manjarabad fort, then to Mookana Mane falls and then to Bisle and continued to Kukke Subramanya.

Yesterday I drove the Shiradi again. Nothing new to report. They are laying new tar on the road between Kokkada and Dharmasthala, starting from Kokkada.
