Around 6 kms after sampaje, you should take a right for subramanya. The road is narrow and would go via markanja.

Any suggestions on the route to be taken and the distance as well?

You can drive to Dharmasthala via Charmadi. We always take the second option shown here when driving from Dharmasthala to Subramanya.

You should take the Madikeri- Sullia road and take a right through Bellare. It used to be a good road with little traffic till Subramanya. We had done this about 7 months back

Couldn't we avoid going to sullia? Isn't the road via markanja, after sampaje in good shape?

The hair pin curves often confound drivers to drive on the wrong side in the curves inviting disaster. See couple of them every time.

This time I captured couple of them on video. The video is run in 2x speed to half the viewing time and make it less boring.

Check out the Innova hugging the wrong inner side while negotiating a curve at position 3:30, and a Omni hugging the wrong outer side few seconds later. Watch it in HD for better clarity.


Nice video ! The Dzire taxi scene is something we always encounter on these roads. I see this more with Bangalore registered cars where they would be otherwise be well behaved on the road only to start driving like idiots whenever you try to overtake them on an otherwise empty road. Here also , this taxi driver is suddenly taking racing lines and isn't giving way. Only for his turbo lag make him look as if he was stationary on the hairpin.

The Innova was a close call. Weren't you honking ?

Driving on agumbe is always fun. I recently did this between 2-4 am and was an absolute bliss to drive on. Will be driving again in the first week of April.

No idea on that. The main road is in very good shape. And its hardly a 15km extra distance.

Correct ! This is always quicker. Way back in 2006 we had taken one of these interior roads only to have the underbody of the zen scraping wherever we would move aside to make way for oncoming traffic

Road via Markanja is really in bad shape. You'll reach faster by taking the excellent roads through Sullia.

Completed this stretch two days back and here are the updates.

1) Bangalore to Hassan – Very good roads and it’s a dream to drive.
2) Hassan to Mudigere – Nice roads, with some potholes near Belur
3) Mudigere to Kottigehara – Again nice roads
4) Mudigere to Dharmasthala – Good roads but dusty at Charmadi ghat and one has to be very careful while driving as truck and KSRTC traffic is more on this small road.
5) Dharmasthala to Subramanya – Roads are in good condition if taken via Gundya. I took the other route Ichilampady and found that almost the stretch from Ichilampady to Mardala is completely broken and very hard to drive. From Mardala till Subramanya its again very good road.
6) Subramanya to Madikeri via Sulia – Very good condition
7) Madikeri to Bangalore via Mysore – Roads are in good condition but the problem is with the traffic, speed breakers and maniac drivers who do not follow the traffic rules.

You don't have to go through the torture of driving over speedbreakers from Bangalore till Hunsur.

No need to go until Jalsoor. The turn off is just after crossing Sullia town at a place called Paichar. The turn off is just after crossing an under construction bridge.

Folks, how is the scene at the twin railway crossings on the ORR before it hits NH-4 @ Yeshwantpur? Is it still the same mad state of affairs?

Thanks in advance...

The time they are taking, am sure in some other country they would have built a bridge over a sea

Even am keen to know the status

Hello guys.. I am in Udupi now and I am planning to travel back to Hyderabad today but via Bangalore. The reason is there is no good place to break the journey if I take the same route that I took when I came here. I read thru this post here but frankly I am lost. What would be the best route to Bangalore?
