If the Kargal road is actually good as you suggested, it will save a lot of time than going all the way via Honnavar.

I have one more query regarding this route. Where exactly on NH206 do you turn left after Sagar to get on to this Kargal road?
Floyd,

As Addy mentioned, there is a turning to the left before Jog falls, but this is easy to miss. You can continue upto Jog, turn left to Jog, and continue(same road) to Kargal and Bhatkal. This road upto Kargal is smooth.

I should actually thank the reports of the bad state of Honnavar-Murudeshwar road, for motivating me to take this road, but am glad for it. Even Bhatkal Kundapur stretch is in very bad shape !

Jog falls wont have too much water, if you find any it will only be a trickle due to poor rains this monsoon

A friend who visited Jog during the 2nd week of November told me this is the current state.

You mean the beautiful route via Kargal!

Conditions: I am aware off. But many state buses take that route. Only suggestion: dont do thats stretch at night. Its quite desolate.

I meant I dont know the latest conditions. But a friend who is from Udupi says State Transport buses ply on this route regularly. So at least I can surmise, the road will not totally desolate during day time.

Bumping up an old thread. I might have 2-3 days to spare next week and thinking about heading out to Jog and covering a few places around. Places of interest that I plan to cover:
1. Bandalike & Balligavi temples
2. Sakrebailu camp
3. Ikkeri Aghoreshwara temple
4. Amruthapura, Hirenallur & other Hoysala temples around Kadur & CR patna

Route plan: Yeshwantpur - Harihar - SH50 - Siralkoppa - Jog - Sagar - Shimoga - Kadur - Arsikere - Yeshwantpur

Looking for homestay/hotel recommendations around Sagar.

Looking for homestay/hotel recommendations around Sagar.

There's a place named Varadalli enroute Jog after Sagara( in between Sagara and JOG). A serene place of religious interest. The temple (Ashram) surrounding is very picturesque. More details here - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Varadapura.
Do visit if feasible. Should not take more than 3 hours of the schedule. The Ashram provides Lunch as well.
One more point of interest is Sigandhuru. Again, a very picturesque place. There's a launch which takes you across Sharavathi backwaters to the other side, where there's another temple. We can take our vehicles also in the launch across the river.



Just before you enter Sagara ( here, i mean when you enter Sagara from Shimogga), on your right, there's one good restaurant which offers Lodging as well. I am not able to recollect the name. There are few other "economy" lodges inside Sagara, close the the Police station.

Happy tripping.

Unless someone knows any specific homestay/resort around Sagar (I don't), my recommendation would be Hotel Royal Orchid Central in Shimoga. I stayed there during my monsoon drive and it was pretty good especially for the price. And from there to Sagar is a good fast road, so you won't lose much time too.

There are 2 places in Sagara.

1. Green Embassy Hotel. This is a relatively new one, have read good feedback from a couple of folks here in the forum: Located right inside the town Green Embassy

2. TipTop Residency: On the right just before you enter Sagara town when coming from Shimoga. I stayed here in august (Did not know about Green Embassy). The rooms were good and neat, rates were cheap. Restaurant services were a bit weird though. Only a non veg restaurant was operational and there was one guy who seemed the main chef, order taker and server. Food was decent. Tip Top Residency

Apart from this, Royal Orchid in Shimoga is good and there are several Home Stays in the Thirthahalli area. But if your focus is Jog, these may be a little too far to stay.

On a side note. Not sure if now is a good time to visit Jog. The flow was average when I visited in August and I don't think it has rained much after that.

Jog is just an added bonus. Focus is to explore hoysala and other temples around this area and spend some time with the elephants at sakrebyle

Should be good. Recall that it looked pretty good from outside when I passed by. In fact looked quite out of place in a small town like Sagara.

The elephant camp closes by 11am. (Assume you may already know this. I missed this fact and landed there post lunch.)

...
Since you have Sakrebylu in your list of places to visit, do include the Gajanur dam as well, both are located very close to each other.
And if you're interested and have the time, the Lion and Tiger Safari at Tyavarekoppa (similar to Bannerghatta park safari and closes by 1pm). This is on the highway between Shimoga and Sagar.
