Please look at posts on the previous page for South Goa route options

The Dharwad-Mollem (Anmod ghat) route is the one with road closure but that's more likely a route used for Central/North Goa destinations since it goes directly to Old Goa & Panaji.

For South Goa, one can go via Shimoga-Honnavara-Karwar or Haveri-Sirsi-Kumta-Karwar or Hubli-Yellapura-Karwar or Bankapura-Mundgod-Yellapura-Karwar. I would prefer Shimoga-Honnavara for now.
* Also, for Bangalore-Shimoga, I would prefer using Hiriyur-Ajjampura-Tarikere or Channarayapatna-Arsikere-Tarikere routes

Stick to " Bangalore-Shimoga, I would prefer using Hiriyur-Ajjampura-Tarikere".

Through Arsikere is bad I heard.

Shimoga-Honnavara-Karwar : This is the best option at present.

Thanks, I hope you meant the route via Channarayapatna-Gandasi-Arsikere ? I've seen some posts about few rough patches but didn't know it's bad enough to avoid.

Hi,

I am travelling from Bangalore to Goa (Baga) this weekend (25th Oct-29 th Oct). Starting afternoon (around 12 pm) of 25th with a night halt at Hubli and then planning on taking the Hubli > Kittur > Bidi > Khanapur > Chorla > Baga route early morning. I am travelling with a 3 year old kid, so have planned stay in Hubli. Planning to return via Karwar > Honnavar > Shimoga > Chitradurga > Bangalore route and do it at one stretch. Kindly advise if both the plans are fine or you have any other suggestions.

Any idea on the road conditions after the current rain spells in these sections.

Thanks,
Riz

Not sure about your onward route to Baga, but for return you can do Karwar-Honnavar-Shimoga and then Shimoga-Bangalore by taking Shimoga-Tarikere-Ajjampura-Hosadurga-Hiriyur-Tumkur-Bangalore. From recent reports, there is just one small section near Hosadurga that has some bridge construction in progress and bit rough and slow there, but isn't bad enough to avoid the entire route.

Avoid Belgaum - Goa via Chorla. Received as a forward.

With the Chorla Ghat road closed, what's the other option left to reach North Goa. Is Amboli Ghat road fine to drive?

We are planning for a Goa trip this weekend. We will be leaving by a private bus from Bangalore on 26th night. We will be alighting at Panaji bus stand. What route do the private buses from Bangalore to Panaji take? What is the condition of this route as of now? Is it advisable to make this trip?

That is 100% not Chorla road. It's one of the roads in Ramdurg Taluka, Belgaum district where the road has caved in. Yes, it has rained incessantly yesterday in and around Belgaum but Belgaum--Chorla--Goa is all good to go.

I concur. Belgaum - Chorla- Goa is good to go. Season has started in Goa (despite the rains) and the showers on the other side of western ghats is not a dampener as of now. There's road widening work in progress all the way till Panjim from Madgaon side. In case you are coming from that side, cater for atleast two hours additional due traffic block.

Looks like the deep depression headed straight into Goa & MH instead of veering west. Lots of rain expected.
Dhanush - whats the situation now in Goa?

It's been raining extremely heavily at Goa since a couple of days now and almost nonstop raining since yesterday and continues at Vasco, Goa as I write this reply. Heavy wind and rain, with gray bleaky sky since morning. Not a good time to visit Goa.

As per the weather predictions, the deep depression will approach the coast of Goa and recurve westwards. The cyclone is not expected to hit the coast. However, overcast skies and rain will continue till 28/29 Oct atleast.

And yes I concur with AshKamath. Not a good time to visit Goa.

Is there any impact on Hassan-Sakleshpur region (bangalore-Hassan-Sakleshpur route) due to this cyclone?
