A nice drive

Mode of Transport: Car

The place is along the coastal will be always good to travel by car. We can enjoy the nature with good scenery. We have lot of towns/shops along the road. The road is National Highway No.17 and at present it is 2 lane. Work is going to expand it to 4 lane. Better to travel at the speed of 60-65 km/hr to enjoy the driving.

The journey and destination was fantastic

Jun 9, 2015
Mode of Transport: Car

We went to Murudeshwar from Bangalore, via Chikamagalur, Sringeri, Agumbe, Udupi, Murudeshwara, Idagunji, Jog Falls, Sigandur, very old and beautiful temple at Amruthahalli (After Shimogga on the way to Bangalore). Totally we covered 1400 kms in two nights and three days. Except from Udupii to Murudeshwara, the road was very good and enjoyed the drive.

We left Bangalore from Friday morning and returned to Bangalore on Sunday.

I went with family and stayed at Mavalli Beach Resort and it was very good. Hospitality and food were very good.

Good condition of roads and avoid night travel

May 5, 2015
Mode of Transport: Car

Road was good compared to all other routes but in between it's worn out and watch out for speed breakers. Small rivers on the sides and temples.

Best to avoid night travel as I feel the truck drives drive rashly and it's risky if you are going as a couple or as a family.

Mode of Transport: Bus

We booked Club Class AC Airawat service by KSRTC and the bus was on time at Kempegowda bus Terminal and there were no other pick-up points. The bus left on time as mentioned in the M-Ticket i.e., 9:15 pm and it took 11 hours to reach the Murudeshwar bus stop i.e., around 8 am. There was one stop around 3 pm for nature calls and to buy some snacks. Overall the journey was pleasant and safe.

It was a very good trip, started at 11:00 pm by bus from Bangalore. We have reached on time at very near to the visiting place. All the stay facilities are available near to the temple. Beaches, Boating, temple and statues are full of fun and gorgeous. Beach is completely clean and full of masti. Don't forget to go for Motor-Boat ride. It's awesome. Temple and statues are huge and full of beauty. It's a complete one day trip not more than that.
