@vivek95, in some earlier posts you had mentioned about good road condition on Amboli ghat. I need to travel to Mumbai from Goa in December. For my Bangalore Goa trip I will take the Shimoga route. But for further journey, do you think Amboli ghat is good to take? I mean via Amboli, Ajara and then Nippani to hit NH-48.
Google recommends Anmod ghat, Tinai ghat bypass and then take NH-48. Bit confused.

Anmod ghat is good no doubt. Kindly check Mumbai--Pune--Goa thread for updates on Amboli--Ajara route. It is recommended for Pune/Mumbai presently.

Rajivtelang, If you are going to South Goa take the Anmod route. If your destination is North Goa take the Amboli ghat. My son took this route from Pune to Goa 2 days back and he said that the Maharashtra side is fine. Once you enter Goa and hit NH 48 it is hell. Roads dug up for 4 laning. The route is Kolhapur - Nipani - Uttur - Amboli - Sawantwadi - Mapusa. 5/6 km around Uttur is in a bad shape.

If you want to avoid part of travel on NH 48, leave the NH at Pernem and go on to Parse and Siolim. This is a quiter road and if you are not doing it on a weekend it is relatively quite. It will add a few km, but you avoid the mess on the NH.

rajivtelang, sorry for wrongly mentioning NH 48. Should read it as NH 66

Hey Guys,

I am planning to drive to Goa (south) from Bangalore in 2 weeks. While I was reading through the thread, there is a bit of confusion in the two routes mentioned. So we will be in 2 cars with 7 adults and 2 kids (less than 3 years). Which route would you suggest taking into consideration we will start by 6:00am from Bangalore and planning to leave Goa by 10:00am after breakfast and the road conditions. GC of the car will not be a problem for us.

Route 1: Bangalore ( Budigere Cross ) - Neelmangala- Tumkur - Chitradurga- Bankapur toll gate - Tadas - Kalaghati - Yellapur - Karwar - Goa (done by pranav_mankad). Even google is suggesting this route 613 kms.

Route 2: Bangalore-Hubli-Dharwad-Anmod-Mollem-Ponda-Panjim-Candolim (done by 2500cc), as per google its 608kms.

So the distance is out of the question while choosing the route. Road conditions and safety are the factors.

Thanks in advance!

Cheers!

This is good for South Goa. Note that the road condition in Arbail ghat section is not good, so be careful there. You can also take the Bankapur-Mundgod-Yellapur route if you dont mind forest roads. . But Tadas-Kalgatghi is the most recommended and has been tried with good reviews by many.
If you are in a larger group of 2-3 cars, I would suggest taking the Mundgod route.

Thank you @jkrishnakj, for the suggestion. Just to be sure are you referring to take this Bangalore - tumakuru - hiriyur - shivamogga - honnavar - gokarna - Karvar - goa route?

And why not, I will drop you a message with my number, if possible we will definitely say hello!

Cheers!

Looking to drive to Goa during Christmas, headed to Mobor beach. Based on the posts, I would take it's the Yellapur-Karwar route that's preferred? Google too recommends this. Or is the Shimoga-Gokarna route a better option?

Also on the return, I plan to take a break since I do not see starting before noon. What would be the good place for a night halt with a good hotel especially in these COVID times?

I am travelling with a 4 year old kid

Bumping up a previously asked question:

I may drive to Goa in December. If aware, please let me know the status of:
Bangalore-Hubli-Kalghatgi-Yellapur-Karwar-Varca route.

Is Chitradurga-Hubli driveable in a Honda City?

Any construction activity in Hubli bypass-Kalghathi-Yellapur?

And also plesae let me know the route condition from:
Hubli Dharwad bypass-Mugad-Alnavar-Londa-Ponda and then onwards. Is this the Anmod ghat route? Thanks.

I am driving to Goa next week. Have heard that the road from Belgaum is bad due to some repair work and going through Karwar is the best route.

Wanted to check the status of the road if anyone has taken the route recently. Also i will be going in a small car. Will it be comfortable to drive through the ghat section in hatchback. any other inputs to be considered will be helpful. Thanks in advance.

I have driven with family in Honda Jazz Belgaum-Khanapur-Bhimgad Wild Life Sanctuary-Anmod-Ponda last month. Except for a few patches up to Khanapur, the road is very much motorable and I covered the drive non-stop in 4 hours (at or below posted speed watching the beautiful scenery through Bhimgad and Bhagwan Mahavir Wild Life Sanctuaries!). Watch out for the lack of proper boundary between the pavement and drainage in Anmod ghat on Karnataka side (as someone else also mentioned in this thread) but the road is wide enough though.

Hi,
Assuming you take back the Karwar route , I would recommend halting at Hubli. You have many options for comfortable stay. If you have the budget , go for Denissons, which is pretty close to my house. Itís among the best in Hubli. If on a tight budget , you can also check The president hotel. I donít know the current prices , but two years ago it was very reasonable considering the service and luxury.

Feel free to DM me if you need more details to halt in Hubli , if you find it convenient. Will be happy to help.

Appreciate your inputs however the Google map route through Karwar is showing the route via Shimoga not Hubli, should I plan to take the Hubli route instead?

Indeed you are right , my apologies I did not cross check with maps. I am not sure about the road condition via Shimoga. May be you can plan a halt there( Map says 6 hours drive from Mobor). But then, I have never been there( I want to though).

If you take Hubli route , you will reach Hubli in 4-5 hours from Mobor. Then you can take the Bangalore highway , which is almost 6 lane now except for Davengere to Durga. As per maps Hubli-BLR is 6 odd hours ( roughly it took 7 hours in my Bolero with sedate speeds). This will be a longer route though as compared to Shimoga.
