Check earlier pages. Ketan had done that very stretch. He took the road from Hunasanahalli. Nice to see you do a full circle.

Has anyone done the Bangalore - Hosur - Denkanikottai - Anchetty stretch recently? I plan to do a solo ride this Sunday on my bike and wanted to know how the condition of the road from Hosur to Anchetty was. Also, is it safe going solo on the Denkanikottai - Anchetty stretch or would you all suggest that I go along with other bikers?

The road till Anchetty was always good. The rough section start beyond on the way to Hogenakkal.

Thanks Ampere and Kumar! I'd also like to know if it is advisable to go ahead with my solo motorcycle ride or do you all advise I go along with a couple of other bikers. I would love to go solo, but if going solo on this route is not safe, I'd rather be with a couple of other bikers than risking it.

Till Anchetty its quite safe. But yes expect very low traffic. Beyond Anchetty its quite desolate. I would just add it would be good to have some company for such trips as against solo.

- Once you cross Hunasanahalli while nearing the TN border, the condition deteriorates.
- I noticed plans to improve the Kanakpura-Hunasanahalli stretch. Dont know the latest on this.
- At the border you hit a Y junction. One road goes to Thally while the other goes to Anchetty.
- Only around the border region the roads are bad. Later they are good.
- The last picture in my previous post gives you a taste of how the highway is
- Anchetty-Denkanikottai is very good to drive.
Me and my biker buddies have decided to go to Mekedattu (via Kanakapura Road) and from there to Anchetty and then back to Bangalore (via Hosur). Does anyone know how the condition of the road from Mekedattu to Anchetty is and what the distance would be?

And please do not try to get into the river anywhere near Mekedattu even if it looks calm. Many a life has been lost there.

Kanakapura-Anchetty-Denanikottai-Hosur is in good condition now, drove this route last Sunday. There is a small section in Kodi Halli town which is less than 10 meters which don't have tarmac, rest all have smooth roads

Friends,

Anyone done this stretch recently -> https://www.google.co.in/maps/dir/Hu...12.8983601!3e0

Any update on the road condition? Any must see scenic places around..? My basic intention is to touch and enjoy the Kaveri river bed. I will be travelling in a Xylo, so no 4*4 trails please..!!!
