Hi Avinash,

If you are going directly to Kundapur, this is the best route.

This is the best route. Except between Chikkamagalur and Aldur which has rough patches in few places entire route is excellent to drive. Agumbe Ghat is in awesome condition.
But from Chikkamagalur till Someshwara you will have twisty winding route all the way. Hence take care of back seat travelers.

Dont go to chikmagalur.

Banglore-hassan-belur-mudigere-kalasa-kudremuk-karkala-manipal-udupi-kundapur.

If you want to go to shringeri, take right turn between kudremuk-karkala at Chikmaglur/udupi dst border.

From shringeri you can go to agumbe too. Once you get down from agumbe, you can take a right to kundapur, not sure how good that road is. Else continue on that road to reach manipal.

Hi All,
A small change in my travel plan. We will be first heading to Udupi and then to Kundapur. So should I take the charmadi ghat ? Is there route via Mysore. Kindly let me know.

If you aren't going to Agumbe/Kuduremukh, then yes. Charmadi - Moodbidri - Karkala - Udupi. The route via Mysore is an overkill & takes 1.5-2hrs extra probably.

If you are going to through Agumbe, the Amruth has already answered you below.

From Agumbe take straight road, Hebri - Hiriyadka - Manipal - Udupi.

Road condition update
Bengaluru - Nelamangal - Hassan - Chikkamagalur - Sringeri - Agumbe - Halady - Neralakatte - Hattiyangadi - Kundapur.


Bengaluru to Hassan : tolled 4 lane road, its breeze to drive.
Hassan to Chikkamagalur : 2 lane road with very few rough patches. Generally good.
Chikkamagalur to Aldur : intial 4 to 5 kms are bad. After bad patched surface becomes smooth.
Aldur-Balehonnur-Sringeri : Twisty road with good condition
Sringeri-Agumbe-Kundapur : very good road. Few rough patched with pot holes around Shankaranarayana. Agumbe ghat is in very good shape. Nothing to worry about landslide area.
Breakfast at Swathi Delicacy
Coffee break at Badra stop Coffee shop few km before Balehonnur town
Lunch at Sringeri temple.


I drove Fiesta with family.
