1. Bangalore - Hassan - Belur - Mudigere- Ujire-Dharmastala

(Except Charmadi all other access to Kukke are bad)

2. Dharmastala - Kukke

3. Kukke - Ujire- Kottegehara - Kalasa/Horanadu

4. Kalasa-Karakala-Sringeri.

3. Sringeri-Udupi

4. Udupi - Murudeshwar - Kollur

5. Kollur-Nagara-Thirtahalli-Koppa-CKM-Hassan-BLR or Kollur-Nagara-Thirtahalli-Shimoga-Tumkur-BLR
(Nagar section may not be all that great but this is the shortest)

Daisy,
Is there a particular order that you have decided on to visit?

Eg : Bangalore to Dharmasthala

You have 2 routes ie Via Charmadi ghat and Shiradi ghat.Both of them are in average condition.

I'd suggest that once you are done with Subramanya and Dharmasthala,you can drive down to Udupi,followed by Kollur.
Post Kollur,you could drive to Murudeshwar and then come back to Kollur and travel to Sringeri via Agumbe.

Hope this helps

daisy since you have Kukke and Mangalore on your list, you will have to endure some real bad roads to avoid driving extra. NH-17 isn't in the best of shape also as far I remember.

Ideally the drive would have been
  • Bangalore --Kukke-Dharmastala--Ujjire--Belthangady--Mangalore.
Then on purely based on your preference of visiting places. From mangalore if you plan to drive to Udupi you can choose to see Karkala and moodabidri and then go to Udupi. Udupi to Kollur and from there on to Murudeshwar.

But then on your way back you will have to take back the Honnavara-Jog-Shimoga route to reach Bangalore.
Else drive back all the way to Manipal from Murudeshwar and then do the Sringeri stretch.Not an easy from what I can see.

ampere ever done this route ?I don't remember having seen something on those lines while driving back from haladi. I passed this small town called Nagara but never saw any deviation towards Kollur. Also I dont find a reason as to why he would go all the way to Murudeshwara and come back to Kollur again to drive back via thirtahalli.

BTW if I were to follow your route, I will loose a lot of kms backtracking the same roads after each place.

Riju,

Even I thought about the Kollur/Murudeshwar option. I was about to write to add Gokarna to the trip and then retun via Honnavar, but was not sure if he would like it.

About the Kollur Option, I have NOT driven there, but I have heard about a bad road from Kollur to Nittur and then on to Nagara.

I remember @airguitar talking about it.

http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/route-...ur-kollur.html (Route Query : Shimoga->Nagara->Nittur->Kollur)




Thirthahalli, Karnataka to Kollur, Karnataka - Google Maps

Though for North Karnataka I look at Google maps with suspicion all the time, since I had heard about, I suggested.

The last I did this road was September end http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/travel...ml#post2084397 (Solo, yet so high)

Nothing was worrying then : both roads ( Hosanagara - Kollur as well as Thirthahalli - Nagara - Kollur ) were doable ( with usual potholes here and there ).

Shimoga - Hosanagara - Kollur may be faster. Murudeshwara - Kollur via Baindoor is a narrow single road :(

BTW I am planning only couple of hours at all these places except for Udipi(1 day) and Mangalore(2 Days). Should this be sufficient?

I am planning to cover moodabidri and karkala when I travel from Udipi to Mangalore. Will this work?

Bangalore - Kukke - Madekiri Route - What stretch of the road is in bad condition. Any idea?

daisyb do your trip in the reverse order then . Start from bangalore--shimoga--honnavara-murudeshwara halt for day 1. From there drive to Kollur--Udupi and halt. Next day cover karkala and moodabidri and then drive to mangalore.

Works well and the distance is pretty less between these two places.

Then what Riju said makes perfect sense. Go the other way.

Hornadu - Balehole(take left) - Basarikatte(take left) - Jayapura(Take left) - Sringeri. Around 60kms
This road is in fairly good condition, but narrow from Hornadu - Jayapura.
