Road condition from Bangalore to Mangalore

Hi,

I would be travelling to Mangalore from Hyderabad via Yeshwantpur with family in the month of mid August (monsoon season). Could anyone help me with the preferred route as there are ghat sections? So need to be well prepared in advance.

Advices/suggestions would be highly helpful.

Thanks,

Amit

HI, the route available now is Yeshwantpur-Hassan-Belur-Kottigehara-Charmadi ghat-Managalore.

But the best route is Yeshwantpur-Hassan-Sakleshpur-Shiradi ghat (this is closed now for concreting work, but expected to be ready by the time you travel) -Managalore.

This road is currently closed due to landslides and excessive rain near the ghat section.

Hi,

Thanks for your input. Is there any possibility of completion by mid of August because as per the previous post by another member, the concretion work would be completed by then. Or, do you suggest some other alternative?

Thanks for your help in advance.

Do you plan to drive or go by bus? the KSRTC buses ply via Madikeri-Puttur route to mangalore, it takes an hour longer but the roads are ok. I traveled last month.

Hi,

Thanks a lot for this. I will drive to Mangalore. However, I got to know the road concreting work of Shiradi Ghat section would be completed by July first week. So, I may take this route as my travel dates are in mid August. How about it? Could you please suggest some alternative?

BR,

Amit

Shiradi ghat repairs generally get delayed everytime due to the tough terrain . Please check for an update before you travel.This is definitely the best route.

Else,you can plan via Mysuru-Madikeri-Puttur.

Hi,

Thank you for the information. I guess Mysuru-Madikeri-Puttur road would be better in case the Shiradi ghat road is not stable by then.

However, I will take an update before my journey. Hopefully, Shiradi ghat section should be ready by the time I travel.

BR,

Amit

Hi,

Thanks for your help. Well, I am looking for Bangalore to Mangalore route. Anyways I will keep a note of your route suggestion while returning. But I think Sakleshpur-Shiradi ghat route would be good as it would be ready by July 1st.
