The road is winding just wide enough for two vehicles to pass,have be very attentive as to the oncoming traffic,the road is excellent, freshly laid one,no refreshments available at the top, and the nearest hotel is at chikamagalur,which is 18 kms from mullayangiri.

Updating after sometime,the odometer reading is now46785km
The tyres have weathered well,the tyres were changed on 26dec2017at 32475km.keeping the tyres pressure 36psi at the front and 38 psi at the back.The steering is precise &grippy,but a harsh ride,the roads here at my place are good so keeping the same for some time.One thing I noticed that the car does not scrap over the monesterous speed breakers that much when compared to pressure at 30 to 32 psi
