My road-trip from Pune to Wayanad | Maruti Vitara Brezza

Embarking on a road trip can be an exciting way to explore new places, and that's exactly what we did on our recent journey from Pune to Belgaum, Mangalore, Virajpet, Wayanad, Hubli, Solapur, and back to Pune. So buckle up and enjoy the ride!

It all began with a discussion of which direction to head - South or West. While there were numerous options in the South, we were only considering a trip to Rajasthan in the West. However, given that it was April, we ultimately decided to go South.

Choosing a destination in the South was no easy feat - the list of possibilities was endless. We considered several destinations, including Puducherry, Rameshwaram, Kanyakumari, Coastal Kerala, Coastal Karnataka, Mysore Ooty, Coorg, and Wayanad. After much debate and disagreement, we finally settled on Coorg and Wayanad for their scenic beauty and cultural attractions. We decided to take a road trip and cover all the tourist destinations en route. Our initial plan was to travel from Pune to Davangere, Davangere to Coorg, Coorg to Wayanad, Wayanad to Shimoga, and then back to Pune.

Determining the dates for our trip was the next challenge, considering my office schedule and my son's school calendar. Initially, we chose to travel from April 21st to April 28th, but we later found out that my son's school had scheduled a mandatory parent-teacher meeting on April 28th. This forced us to reconsider our plans and pushed our travel dates up by a few days.

On the first weekend of March, I sat down to revisit our travel plan and made some significant changes - we decided to take a different route and extend the duration of our trip. We settled on a ten-day journey that would take us from Pune to Belgaum, Murudeshwar, Udupi, Mangalore, Coorg, Wayanad, Hubli, Solapur, and then back to Pune.

The task of securing confirmed hotel bookings was daunting, but we were eventually able to book stays at UK27, The Fern Hotel in Belgaum, Ginger in Mangalore, Club Mahindra Resorts in Virajpet Coorg, Vythiri Village Resort in Wayanad, Fortune Park in Hubli, and Balaji Sarovar Premiere in Solapur.

With our bookings and dates finalized, we began planning the tourist attractions and places we wanted to visit. We created an itinerary with all the famous places along our route and were pleased to find that the roads in Maharashtra, Karnataka, and Kerala were in great condition except few kilometers due to road construction on highways.

As we were traveling in April, we were warned by relatives and friends about the heatwave, but the weather turned out to be pleasant and manageable. The temperatures in Coorg ranged between 23-30 degree Celsius, while Wayanad was much cooler. We did not plan for rest or meal stops, but we were able to find great options through Google Maps and user reviews, such as Ajanta Cafe in Belgaum and Udipi Cafe at Sai Palace in Mangalore.

In preparation for my road trip, I extensively researched various blogs and Team BHP posts to ensure that I was well-equipped for the journey, Many thanks to Team-BHPians and bloggers. While my 2018 Brezza ZDI model lacked some of the advanced technology found in newer cars, I decided to upgrade my vehicle by installing a 9-inch screen with both Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, a Hero Qubo dashcam, and stylish ice grey leather seats. These enhancements significantly improved my driving experience, and I felt confident and excited to embark on my adventure. To ensure we stayed well-nourished and hydrated throughout the trip, we made sure to pack a variety of snacks, food items, and mineral water.

All in all, our road trip through Maharashtra, Karnataka, and Kerala was an unforgettable experience and we were able to explore some of the most breathtaking destinations in India, made possible by our careful planning and research.

From Gundlupete, you will proceed toward Mysore, a city known for its rich cultural heritage and historical significance. Mysore is home to some of the most iconic landmarks in Karnataka, including the Mysore Palace, the Chamundi Hill, and the Brindavan Gardens, etc we choose to skip these attractions since we have already visited them on a previous trip.

My road trip from Pune to Wayanad and back - April 2023

The 95-kilometer-long state highway that runs through Maddur, Kunigal, and Tumkur is a two-lane road used by both local commuters and long-distance travelers. The road conditions are decent, although there are some patches of roughness and potholes along the way.

The section from Maddur to Kunigal is relatively smooth and well-paved, taking drivers through picturesque rural landscapes and small villages. However, it's important to be watchful for pedestrians, livestock, and other vehicles that may be sharing the road.

As the road continues from Kunigal to Tumkur, drivers may encounter some uneven patches and bumps, but overall, the condition remains decent. This section passes through more urbanized areas with increased traffic, so drivers should exercise extra caution.

While the Maddur-Kunigal-Tumkur road conditions are decent, it's always advisable to drive carefully and stay alert. Additionally, checking for recent updates and road closures before starting your journey is recommended as road conditions can change due to various factors, including political rallies.

The stretch between Tumkur and Chitradurg is part of National Highway 48 (NH 48), which is a four-lane highway and is generally in good condition. The road is mostly straight and flat, with occasional curves and bends. There are several small towns and villages along the way, which may slow down traffic, especially during peak hours. However, overall, the journey from Tumkur to Chitradurg is smooth and comfortable.

Additionally, there are several steep inclines and descents along the way, which may require careful driving, especially during monsoon season. The road passes through several small towns and villages, which may slow down traffic at times.

Overall, the road condition between Tumkur, Chitradurg, and Davangere is relatively good, and you should not face any significant issues while driving on this route.

The segment of NH48 that runs through this area boasts a six-lane highway and stunning views, particularly near Chitradurg and Davangere. However, we were unable to locate any suitable eateries or accommodations for a quick tea break, so we drove on until we arrived at Makanur. It was there that we chanced upon a sign for the Shiva Hotel - Pure Veg and decided to take a break and enjoy some evening tea. The facilities were well-maintained, and the restrooms were clean, making it an ideal choice for families.

The GMap coordinates for the Shiva Hotel are GQQ5+2Q Makanur, Karnataka.

My road trip from Pune to Wayanad and back - April 2023

Day 9 - Hubli to Solapur





We kicked off our ninth day of the road trip by unwinding at the lavish Fortune Park Hotel in Hubli, which was much needed. After relishing a delicious breakfast at the hotel, we refueled our car's diesel tank for a hassle-free journey ahead. Our initial itinerary included a visit to the Shri Kshetra Ganagapur Dattatreya Temple and Shree Swami Samarth Mandir in Akkalkot. As a result, we altered our route and took the Hubli to Pune via the Solapur route.

Before leaving Hubli, we couldn't resist indulging in the renowned Dharwadi Pedha at Babusingh Thakur Pedha, which turned out to be the most delicious one we have ever tasted.

Our first destination for the day was the serene town of Ganagapur, which we reached at 4 pm. We took some time to explore the Nirgun Paduka Darshan and Amarja Bhima Sangam Darshan, relishing the peaceful atmosphere and tranquil surroundings. Then we left for Akkalkot which is approx. 75kms from Ganagapur.



We witnessed a stunning sunset while en route to Akkalkot.

Afterward, we headed to Akkalkot and reached our destination at 6 pm. At the Shree Vatavriksha Swami Samarth Maharaj Devasthan, Akkalkot, we experienced the Swami Samarth Paduka Darshan, which was an unforgettable and spiritually uplifting experience.


As the day began to wind down, we made our way to Solapur. We reached the Sarovar Premier Hotel at approximately 8:30 pm and indulged in a delightful dinner at the nearby Bramhand Restaurant before retiring for the night at our hotel.

Day 10 - Solapur to Pune





On Day 10, our amazing road trip will be ending today. As we woke up, we felt a mix of emotions - happy for all the incredible memories we had made, yet also sad that it was all coming to a close.



Our journey from Solapur began at 8:15 am, and we headed towards Pune. After a two-hour drive, we stopped at Deshpande Veg near Indapur Phata for breakfast. The food was delicious and left us feeling rejuvenated and ready to complete our journey. We visited a local farmer's shop and bought some local foodstuff. It was a great feeling to support the local community, and the produce was simply delightful.

After enjoying a delicious breakfast at Deshpande Veg, we set off on our journey towards Pune, which was still 150 kilometers away from Indapur Bypass. We wasted no time and began our drive. The drive was smooth until we reached Loni Kalbhor town, thanks to the improved condition of the Solapur Pune highway. However, from Lonikalbhor onwards, we encountered heavy traffic, which persisted until we reached our destination.

Finally, we arrived home at 2:30 pm, putting an end to our road trip. Even though we were sad that it had come to an end, we were grateful for the wonderful experiences we had and the memories that we would always cherish. The trip was filled with beautiful landscapes, dense forests, hill stations, coastal towns, and the beauty and diversity of the Western Ghats region of India. It was truly a trip of a lifetime!

Excellent travelogue! We were planning a trip to Coorg this year, however I got a tear in my ACL ligament and had to undergo surgery.
Thanks for mentioning Hotel Deshpande Veg; it's owned by one of my close friends and I will surely let him know of your appreciation.
