No, I planned a similar trip and booked these places, but could not do the trip and so no feedback from me on this place. But heard its a decent one.
For Sakhlespur, PM our member chandan. he owns a homestay. Btw, what car are you driving?
Any particular reason why you are going to Mangalore and then traveling south?
The Sakleshpur-Mangalore road stretch, where you cross the Shiradi ghat was pretty bad till recently, don't know how it is now.
Thanks very much!
I will be driving a Santro.
I was told that Bangalore-mangalore stretch, the roads are very bad
again mangalore to kerala border, the roads are bad.
Saturday,12th dec, I drove to Bangalore and 13th returned back to
I took following route to Bangalore:
Kannur - Kuthurparambu - Nedumpoyil - Mananthavady - Kattikulam - Tholpatty - kutta - mysore - Bangalore.
The roads were okay except the mysore border road -just after kerala border to mysore road, the forest section- the road work is in progress hence one need to take diversion through the villages nearby and those roads were really bad (waste of time also).
I took another route on return.
Bangalore - mysore (before mysore, I took the left turn -outer ring road goes to ooty/calicut) - nanjagod (the road upto nanjagod is not good) - Gundalpet -sultanbathery - mananthavady (very good roads).
After mananthavady, I took the Palchuram ghat area-kottiyur-peravur-irritty-sreekantapuram-Thaliparamba-payyannur.(this route have got too much curves and not easy to find signages for a new person)
Since you want to proceed to Kannur, you may opt for mananthavady-
Mangalore-Kasargod has some bad stretches - near the border - but not too bad to drive.
Just a round trip to see a bit of Karnataka and North Kerala.
