Thanks for pointing out. Checking it now.
Hey Explorers, I am planning my trip to Hampi, Karnataka alone. Any needy suggestions to be given who has been there before.
Hi Vinay! We haven’t been to Hampi yet 🙁
Hey, your blog has been nominated here – http://phototravelings.blogspot.in/2015/09/liebster-award-nominations.html check out !
I’m planning a road trip to Coorg with my family and chanced upon this site (http://www.theuntourists.com/mumbai-to-coorg-by-road/) . Loved the route you guys have taken. However, since I’m travelling with my family (wife and 2 kids, aged lesser than 11), I would like to know the following:
1. The time and distance from Belgaum to Karwar via NH4A – SH34 and then to Udupi (Stay at Kediyoor Hotel) via NH17.
2. The time and distance from Udupi – Mangalore – Madikeri.
The kids are excited, however, the concern is that we want to go via Anshi National Park and follow the route you have taken. We want to explore this route to the max, provided it is comfortable for the kids. The time that we have in hand is from 08th November, when we start from Mumbai, till 17th November when we schedule to reach Mumbai, back to work the next day 🙁 Please let me know how we can plan about.
Hi Daniel. To answer your questions:
1) should take around 5 hours. The distance is around 178 kms.
2) Udupi – Mangalore – Madikeri is roughly 190 km and should take you 4 hours of reasonable driving.
For driving from Mumbai, we prefer to sleep over in Belgaum the first night and leave for Karwar early morning. This way you pass the forest in daylight. Avoid driving through any forest after dark. Make sure your car is full of supplies, have ample fuel, the types are ok before driving into Anshi. Do not stop and get out of your car I the forest stretch at any cost. The roads inside Anshi are very bad, but that’s ok, since it’s a forest. This trench will slow you down.
For Udupi to Madikeri should take you around 4 hours. NH17 may slow you down in places. Add another hour or so for sight seeing on the way. We like to stop often for local food, pictures and great views.
This whole journey is very beautiful and if you sleep over at Belgaum and then Udupi, it’s a comfortable journey for just about anyone. We never drive after sunset. Make sure you carry motion sickness pills with you for the kids, especially for the ghats.
If you leave Mumbai on the early morning of the 8th, you should reach Madikeri on the 10th afternoon. Enjoy your journey and have a great time! Madikeri is great for food too!
Hi, thanks a ton for the info. Will stick to the route and the tips you have given. Subscribing to your travel newsletter 🙂 Thanks, once again.
Thanks David! Have a great trip!
I’m an independent filmmaker looking for some old bungalows in Maharashtra. Your blog post on Jambhulpada drew me in. And I was wondering if you could recommend any such places that you might have come across in your travels.
It would be great if you could please help me out here.
