And also know if the time i'm leaving Bangalore in the morning is ok?
Oh 6 am , It's too early for me.
But if you wan't to explore more places, Its the best time to leave.
You follow this route: Bangalore-Mysore outskirt(Right turn near Columbia Asia),Then comes GRS Park,still you go straight ,then you will get a main signal,Go straight further no deviation. Then if you go straight further you will get infosys. Don't go straight take left one down road will come go straight.
Then if you ask some one the route to Hunsur they will guide you.
Some school will come there you have to take left U turn then the main signal to Mangalore comes( take right turn from that signal) It's the 4 way lane.
That's the superb road.
I think having breakfast at Kamat Upachar is a best idea.
And a halt to Maddur tiffany's as well.
I told you the above route hoping that you are not going to Mysore city.
The places you can visit is Byalukuppe Tibetian monastery.
What i would suggest you is to take left near Koppa as it's the shortest route to the temple .
Because if you take left near Byalukuppe you have to travel more distance to temple.
Koppa comes next after Byalukuppe.
Then comes the Kushal nagar, there you can visit Nisargadhama(Deer park), Nothing special though.
And Abbi falls just a few km before Madikeri.
And do halt for the lunch in East End(The one that comes near HP Petrol Bunk).
If you go beyond 3.30 you may not get a good meal, That's the only best restaurant in Madikeri.
After you come out of East end, go straight and take left near circle, Which leads you to Sampaje-Sullia-Puttur(Take left on the highway , Don't go to city)-Then you get Mane- Kalladka-B.C.Road-Bantwal
The time i used to take was Bangalore-Mysore-145 kms(2:15 min), Mysore-Madikeri-120kms(2 hrs)-Madikeri-Bantwal(3 hours)
Total: 7 & half hour's.
But the road from madikeri to Samapje has a few potholes.
Which is better compared to Shiradi Ghat.
