Thanks Hari, if MUL can consider some interest reduction on my loan for my next car, I would be more obliged , Presently it is 4.5% more than when I bought my car early last year.

Am sure you did enjoy the Dharmasthala route, quite scenic.
The road is not as wide as the regular NH48 but you can easily maintain 70 - 80 kph throughout except for near the towns enroute.

I distance between Uppinangadi and Beltangadi is just about 15-16km...there is no town enroute...and you can never do 70-80kmph in that narrow road...
I think you are confusing with some other road...

My fault for not making it clear. I was referring to the entire stretch from Karkal onwards till NH48 via Mudbidri and Belthangadi.

I did that route 2 weeks ago in the afternoon when there was hardly any traffic in that sector.

Sorry for the confusion, if any.
