A clarification:

Let not the above reservation voucher mislead anyone into concluding that participation is closed.

Tentative / Tatkal bhpians wishing to join are welcome but must first secure their stay directly with JLR before updating the confirmed list.

Please feel free to pm me for assistance, if any.

Cheers

I have been looking at the confirmed participant's list and it looks exciting. Some real good drivers!
I am confident it is going to be lot of fun as we take our rides to the ghat sections.

If you are taking NH206 to JLR, there are no ghats.
You go through planes.

Bangalore-Tmukur-Tiptur-Arsekere--Kadur-Birur-Tarikere-JLR.

After Tarikere you deviate of NH206 to JLR via Lakkavalli.

The drive is not twisty but, reportedly, scenic it is. On the return, we skirt the base of Babudangiri range through a reserve forest, as we approach Chikmagalur. Ampere could amplify.

The best part about the cafe is the location. Its on a coffee plantation itself and right on the main highway that leads to Tarikere. Its also very quiet for something bang on the main state highway. The quiet was enough for me to just want to chill and relax.
On the return, I took Kadur - Banavara - Arsikere- Tiptur - Gubbi- Tumkur bypass (NH 206). In my opinion, this is a much better and faster approach to Chikmagalur. It took just 3hours and 40min. We did a non stop run. I found the drive more involving and apart from the broken Tumkur By Pass and toll booths, nothing slowed us down. The roads were absolutely empty too.

10 Nov:
1.00-2.00 pm: Chikmagalur - Lunch venue TBD -

A suggestion:

Coffee Barn Cafe
Halliberri Coffee & Cottages | Kambihalli Estate, Chikamagalur

"the atmosphere is really awesome, very peaceful"
"Small, but well thought-out, tasty fast food & coffee"

http://www.tripadvisor.in/Restaurant...Karnataka.html

If it's Ooty, I must be Chamarajnagar Tea Centre; if it's Chikmagalur it must be Coffee Barn Café

Cheers

Just drove through the onward proposed route last weekend on my way to Goa. I'm telling you - it's a delight! Sparse traffic, excellent 2-laned tarmac barring the Tumkur bye-pass.

The only downside was that there are no decent/known eatouts besides the CCD at Arsikere. But there are plenty of dhabas, tried one for lunch and found it to be really good and tasty. Oh and it was a drive-in service!!

So I'm sure you guys will have the best!

EDIT: Checked the Coffee Barn Cafe link on tripadvisor and saw the name as "Halli Berri" Coffee & Cottages!!

As discussed in the other thread, what I would propose is :

JLR-Lakkavalli-Tarekere-Lingadahalli-Kaimara-Chikkamagulur.

If needed at Kaimara you can visit Mullayanagiri. The road is not all that great. Do confirm with others.

Your proposal is currently our return route:

JLR RiverTern Lodge - NH 206 - Tarikere - SH 57 [Tarekere-Lingadahalli-Kaimara-Chikkamagulur] - Hassan - NH 48 - Nelamangala - NH 4 - Bangalore

Just found the itinerary for the wildlife sanctuary meet when casually browsing the JLR site:
http://www.junglelodges.com/itinerary10

RS sir, what's the plan for lunch on Sunday?? The checkout is I believe at 11.30 AM on Sunday the 10th, so we will be hitting Chikmagalur quite early from Bhadra. For lunch, we can even consider your earlier plan of Stay Simple Riverdale resort at Hassan, which happens to be the next decent place
