Thank You Biju. I actaully want to take the Konkan railway all the way from Mangalore to Mumbai after Monsoons. I agree, doing this route on road is a completely different experience. Trust me!! there is still lots more to see on the Konkan stretch in Karnataka.

If you go thru the detailed travelloge of dreamdiesel you would find everything you need. Hey, short of describing the shape of potholes, he has pretty much detailed everything down to the rates of rooms, food, beaches, shacks, stoppages, fuel pumps, etc.

Congrats DD on such a fantastic review of your trip. BTW what tyres are u running?

Yepp. Tried to pen down as much as I could in detail. Hope its informative for other BHPians who plan a similar trip. I am running Swift ZXI Alloys and Tyres (JK 185/70 R14) on my Swift VDI.

Today it was raining so hard, I was getting drenched with the rain water hitting from the passenger side of the Jeep, I was driving by the way. It rains like that for hours, many times a day. What will this do to the roads in another 15 days, can't be imagined. If you are going to do it in M800, all the best to you. Keep tuning into art of travelling thread for Mangalore/Udupi regualrly for updates on road conditions.

If it's raining in coastal side definately Kodachadri will be good for offroading right.

Yep. Dream Diesel has covered in a detailed way and it is very handy.

Samurai, since you are from that part of state, would you suggest doing this trip as I have my leaves approved and really dont want to waste them. Since long, have been craving to do a Coastal Karnataka trip in monsoon. Suggest?

If you suggest against it, then will plan for a beach location in TN otherwise. Dont want to do a Hill Station now due to the weather and my 5 month old daughter.

Await revert.

A 5 month old infant? In that case I would ask you not to venture this way. The massive rains has unleashed all kind of insects and bugs. I am getting bitten by insects I don't recognise, and as a result have swellings on my arms and face on a daily basis these days. I feel I am living in a jungle.

Therefore, I suggest you come after Sepetember, when the greenery is still around but without the rains.

I am also planning coastal Karnataka from 25 to 31 dec.
Majority hotels that are available on web are full.
I already contacted all of them and got confirmed reservation today for
Karwar @ estary view resort and for gokarna @ Om beach resort.
Udupi , I still need to book , but since it is big town no problem there.

Sirsi , whatever contacts number I got from google are not working now.
And since it is small town , no hotel with any website.

Sisri, gokarna and karwar, you need to book.

If you call any hotel on phone at gokarna,murudeshwar they will say it is full. I do not have any idea about homestays, and on net, contact info
of this homestays is not available so I suggest , confirm the booking first.
Also rates are 30% higer in last week of december.

SBR, this may be a bit odd time considering you have not made your bookings yet, acco in most of the good places will be full.
