I might give Belgaum a skip due to the trouble brewing up. I might take the Kolhapur - Ratnagiri - Goa - Karwar - Honnavara - Jog route.

Hi Guys,

Take the Yellapure route. If you have done many times, then you can give Mundgod a try.
ExtremeTorque did it recently. But road is not good.

From that point of view, Yellapur-Sirsi is better.

Did you stay with Nature Trails at Dabhosa? I went there a couple of years ago when they had just tents and no electricity. Nice place and not too far from the city either!

My query is almost similar -

Any idea of the road conditions in the Hubli-Yellapur-Ankola-Honnavar-Udupi route?

Hear that there was more than 75mm rains in Honnavar yesterday!

Super Pics! I had been to Bhandardara long back and the whole place was pretty messed up and dirty with all lodges and accommodation facilities. The fogs and the cool temperature is the scenes at some places is very good. After seeing this, I want to make another trip.

Yup, have stayed there once...No electricty, no fans, very primitive and rustic with just the roar of the waterfall in the background...good for a nights stay.

Guess you went to the wrong part of town...MTDC is right on the fringes of the forest sanctuary...green, wet and mean!!
