Back from Sakleshura after a long weekend.
The road just after Ballupete to Sakleshpura has taken the beating of heavy rain, certain places are filled with potholes. Rest of the route(BLR-Hassan-Ballupete) is in good condition except the 4 lane deviations at some places.

Hi Guys, I am planning to visit Udupi during Diwali holidays.I am planning to take the Agumbe route. If anybody had taken this route recently , can they answer my below questions?
1) How is the road condition and how many Kms of bad stretch approximately ?
2) Is it doable in a maruti 800 ? I intend to leave at 4:00 AM
3) What was the exact route that was taken ?

I dont like travelling in bus and want to take the car.

I took this route last month. Here is detailed route :

Bangalore-Magadi-Kunigal-Hassan-Belur-Chikmaglur-Aldur-Sringeri-Agumbe-Manipal-Udupi

Break up:
Bangalore - Magadi - Kunigal - Awesome roads as soon as you leave Bangalore
Kunigal - Hassan - So and so. Constructions and road repairs

Hassan - Belur - Chikmaglur - Good roads.

Chikmaglur - Aldur - Sringeri - Agumbe - Good roads for the most part.

Agumbe - Manipal-Udupi - You nightmare would start as soon as you descend from Agumbe. The road goes from bad to worse. Huge potholes will require you to stop the car completely before proceeding. I did this route on my Santro <with 5 people> and I cant remember how many times the bottom of the car scraped the road. Thats for about 5-10kms after Agumbe. Then the roads get slightly better as you go towards Manipal.

Hope this helps. ^^

Thumbs up

As rightly said by Morgul, this is the perfect route and very much doable in 800 except for the stretch after agumbe and around sitanadi. The road stretch is bit bad as it is a single road hence need to drive slowly for about 15-20 odd kilometers. In between some patches are ok. Rest I am sure you will enjoy the drive as it is lush green now and drizzling in heights.

Take the NICE road to reach the Magadi road and you will save hell lot of time and also will be a great start for the journey.

All the best and Happy Journey.

Well, Morgul has explained the route in detail.

I travelled upto Agumbe on this route the previous saturday. The only place you may have to worry is a couple of spots between Aldur & Balehonnur. You will be riding high on good roads and suddenly you will find crater sized potholes. Just be careful near blind spots. You might just run into a huge crater.

Most of the good stretches have become rough due to the monsoon. But those are manageable, atleast I could, in my Innova. I think you should be able to cover it in the 800 without much hassles.

Since you plan to leave Bangalore as early as 4 am, you should pass through Agumbe at a good time. When I went, we passed through Agumbe at around 6 pm <thanks to leaving Bangalore late> . It was raining and it was so foggy that I could not see for more than 5 ft in front. It was disappointing since I was hoping for some good photos at Agumbe. T_T

Hope you have better luck. ^^

I just came via Agumbe last week.. Roads are in OK condition.. worst stretch is after Hebri till someshwar(foothills of Agumbe and few curves at the bottom)

Should be doable on 800 easily.. i could see many 800/Omni taking this route

@400kph, you can also try this route.

Hassan - Belur - Mudigere - Kalasa - Kudremukh - Karkala - Udupi.
The roads upto Mudigere are good. Ok upto Kalasa. From Kalasa The roads are good all the way till Udupi.

The distance is almost the same as Agumbe route.

MCR, roads from Belur to Mudigere is not that good, infact just about few kms of stretch between the roads which take you to Charmadi and Kalsa gets good..again going towards kalsa the road gets rough but kalsa onwards its smooth.

I thought that the Kudremukh-Karkala road had caved in sometime last month. Has it been repaired already?

Mudigere to Kottigehara-Baalur was in an ok condition, but from Baalur (where you take a left towards Kalasa) to Kalasa, it was very very rough. And I expect no improvements to happen atleast till the rains end.

@lohitrao,
Yes the Belur - Mudigere road is not in the same league as that of Hassan to Belur or Hassan to Chickmaglur. The Kalasa Kudremukh stretch is good and also very Scenic. The Hanumagundi falls is amazing.
The road from Chickmaglur Via Aldur to Sringeri is ok. But the particular stretches near Aldur are quiet bad.

@addyhemmige,
Are you sure about the caving in on Kudremukh - Karkala road. I never heard about this. This stretch of road is good and from Karkala to Udupi the roads are good and wide.

On the Agume ghat roads, the road concrete slab moves as the cars pass on them. Sometimes this is scary.

This news was posted here a few weeks ago. I'm not sure about the present condition though.
