Thanks for the update. Will avoid this in that case.

Yes, this is a beautiful road, just that I was thinking that Sirsi route may be faster option.

It is been a while since I took this route though. Last was some 2 years back, that time Arsikere - Kadur had few potholes, else the route was great all way till Tarikere (Lakkavalli).

Will take this route itself in that case. Thanks.

Since you are travelling on a weekend, there will be crowd at the temple. Check the temple and pooja timings as Dhanur Masa starts on 16th of this month. The roads were asphalted between Yadiyur and Tiptur last year, roads are decent enough to maintain good speed till Shivamogga.

Thanks for the same. I will be at Gokarna from Sat till Tuesday and the trip will be a leisure one, so will check the temple timing and plan the visit accordingly.

We took a trip to Jog just a couple of months back on Arsikere-Kadur-Bhadravathi-Shimoga-Talaguppa route. I documented the trip report here (Bangalore to Jog Falls - Route, experiences).

To summarise, the road conditions aren't so bad to have a rethink. Also we went post-monsoon. It hasn't rained much over the past two months in Karnataka. So I don't think the roads would have deteriorated, or did they?

We are planning a trip to Murudeswar & Goa from Bangalore end of this month. Family trip with 2 adults & 2 kids.
Whats the best suggested route to Murudeswar from Bangalore.
I've been to Murudeswar multiple times earlier and have taken different routes: Shimoga -> Jog -> Honnavara -> Murudeswar; Sirsi -> Kumta -> Honnavara -> Murudeswar; Ranebennur -> Siddapur -> Honnavara -> Murudeswar. But its been more than 2 years since my last trip this way. Hence wanted to check on the road conditions.

Google Maps seems to suggest the Ranebennur route. Anyone tried this route or destination recently? Hows the road conditions? Or any alternate suggestions?

Thanks

Planning Bangalore - Gokarna on 15 Dec.
Hi mpksuhas - I noticed you posted your experience on another post (https://www.team-bhp.com/forum/route...queries-4.html (Bangalore - Gokarna : Route Queries)), but that answers my question as well.

Going by your experience, I will stick to the Bangalore - Chitradurga - Ranebanneur - Haveri - Sirsi route to Murudeswar. Thanks!

I completed a trip covering Kollur, Murudeshwara and Gokarna during last week of December. I started from Bangalore at 7:30am and reached Kollur at 4:15pm which included 2 short breaks for refreshments and 1 long break for lunch at Suruchi, Kadur. The route taken to Kollur was Bangalore-Yadiyur-Turuvekere-Kadur-Tarikere-Shimoga-Ayanur-Hosanagara-Ramachandrapura-Nittur-Kollur. The road conditions are pretty average around Shimoga and improve as we drive towards Ayanur. The last stretch from Nittur-Kollur is full of greenery and suited for a relaxed driving. Road work is in progress on this stretch, driving with caution is advised. I completed the darshan the same evening at Kollur. I stayed back in Kollur at Annapurna Guest House.

I started towards Murudeshwar next day early morning at 3:00am, it was a 70 minute drive and road conditions were good till Baindur. The NH66 road widening work is in progress from Baindur all the way till Gokarna with lot of diversions. I completed the darshan at Gokarna by 9:30 am and started towards Bangalore. I spent about an hour with my family members at Kasarakod beach, Honnavar and another hour at Jog Falls. I took the Gerusoppa-Talaguppa-Sagara-Shimogga-Kadur-Arasikere-Turuvekere-Yadiyur-Bangalore route for return journey. I reached home at 10:00pm with 2 breaks at Kadur and Yadiyur.

We had wonderful road trip to Murudeshwara and Maravanthe few days ago.
Watch the video if you want to know about condition of NH66 and rough idea about the places mentioned.

I am planning to take a trip to Murudeshwar from Bangalore and will start on Thursday afternoon. Google maps shows that the route to take is Bangalore-Tumkur-Sira-Hiriyur-ChitraDurga-Davanagere-Haveri-Sirsi-Kumta-Murudeshwar.

I am wondering if it would be a better scenic route to Drive via Bangalore-Channarayanapattana-Arsikere-Kadur-Tarikere-Shivamogga-Honnavar-Murudeshwar!

A third alternate is to take the first route mentioned till Chitradurga and drive to Shivamogga from there.

We would take a night halt in between instead of driving all the way through. Please suggest which would be a better place to stay on the route.

All 3 options have their pluses and minuses. If you take Channrayapatna route, then Tarikere-Shivamogga is bad. If you take Chitradurga-Shivamogga, the route midway around Channagiri is bad. Sirsi-Kumta will also have it's fair share of problems and will be longer.

For stops midway, Shivamogga is the best bet and if you take the Sirsi route, then Davanagere. I usually stop at Jog falls on the way to Goa, but not during summers!
