DD - start a new one with date, as this seem to be within June.

@Alter - I checked with 2-3 maping websites, the distance is within 566 to 578 km from Electronic City, though I don't stay there any more but still carrying the habit
I just found out that I am without job for 4 days in the first week of june.
that means I have a off on monday and tuesday too

Avijit,

Lets go Go Go-karna if you are still interested during this next to next weekend

I am ready for Gokarna guys. Have been planning it for quite some time, but everytime ended up making trips to other places, Yercaud (terrible), some other short trips, Shivanasamudra Falls (hope the spelling is correct) and so on.

But for Gokarna, I am definitely game for it. We should look at leaving at night (10:00 ish) and try to reach there by morning. I have taken the detailed maps also sometime back to Gokarna and also plotted the co-ordinates in my GPS. SO all set

Good discussion going on, I cant join, sorry about it because already 2-3 trips lined up! Gokarna will be bit hot in summer and untill june end. But it won't be cool after that. So going to beach don't check/think about heat/rain etc.. My experience is visiting beach is different experience in different season.

Bangalore (from Vijayanagar) to Gokarna is 500km via Shimoga or even from via Chitradurga - Haveri - Sirsi. This time assume road will be in good condition (expect max. 20km bad roads in any route) even in rainy season. So to Gokarna don't worry about roads. Already 2-3 times it rained heavily that area so forest is green by now! So If you visit in June also expect scenic drive.

Mansoon is expcted to reach Gokarna by 1st week of June in most of the years! Whne it enters expect heavy storms/power cut/slightly road block etc. But don't worry there won't be much trouble in Gokarna area. If you get struck in Jog-honnavara road take Devimane ghat road or I can find out alternate routes If needed.

Regards,

Ravi.

I Prefer the Gokarna drive, atleast 60-70% of the roads are surrounded by green. With Mahabalipuram I am just suspecting high temperatures, higher than that of Gokarana.

I guess our unofficial weather man Ravibhat can throw some light.

I would say drive off on June 11 by noon some 2ish and reah Gokarana. and while back we can cover the other places as suggested earlier.

Lets GO-KARNA guys..Will share the details plan tomorrow, thanks Ravi for the update. I am also aware of some alternet routes to Gokarna from Jog falls, but don't think our luck will be that bad Guys belive me the route from Shimoga till Honnavar is one of the most scenic route in Karnataka and NH 206 really rocks though its not a 4 lane kind of road. Will post some snaps of my last trip to Jog, tomorrow, Good Night.

Looks like we may have to go in for a poll.
First preference is Gokarana for me.

OT: Asdon's signature has changed, have the tires been changed?

Default The Plan

Guys, I assumed Gokarna is the most preferred choice so made a plan accordingly. Give your inputs to this.

Bangalore - Tumkur 90 km - 2.5 hr
Tumkur - Arsikere 98 km - 1.5 hr
Arsikere - Shimoga - 110 km 2 hr
Shimoga - Sagar - 72 km - 1 hr
Sagar - Jog Falls - 30 km - 0.5 hr
Jog Falls - Gokarna - 113 km 2 hr

Start from Bangalore at 9pm and reach Tumkur by 11:30pm, keeping 2.5 hr due to the traffic on NH4. One roll call after we hit NH 206.
Then the road is yours, drive fast but be safe, its night. Will reach Shimoga, don't enter, there is a road goes to left just before crossing the river before the road which goes inside Shimoga , our next meeting point, we hope to reach there by 3am. Break any one? Lets start by 3:30am, we will reach Jog falls at 5am, stop over for an hour, by 6am start from Jog, then the ghat road starts, we should reach Gokarna by 8am. Thats the plan to reach the beach by Sat day morning. Lets see how many agrees to this one, by this, we don't need to take leave for a day.

Its not always about high speed 4 lane drive, but to enjoy the natural beauty of Western Ghats too.

@Deepak - not yet, but did change the door and some other dents, want to go for a tyre upgrade and Alloy, so looking for some more Lakshmi to come

@asdon, how about little deviation and cover Murdeshwar. Murdeshwar to Gokarna is 70kms on sea shore side. Check the photos below,
The World's Best Photos of murudeshwar - Flickr Hive Mind

Do these inspire our own photographers?
