"Road conditions are good till Arakalagoodu but over speeding is not recommended"

We took a route via C R Patna, Holey Narasipura, Arakalagoodu, Kushalnagar and while coming back via Kushalnagar, Hunsur, Mysore, Bangalore. The former road conditions are good till Arakalagoodu. From there till you travel for about 15 km (don\'t know the exact village name), you can experience one of the horrible roads in India. You start wondering if there are ditches and potholes in the road or the other way round. Even while the 15 km stretch is not so long, the experience is pains taking. Otherwise the road condition overall is good and safe to drive. However, if you are looking for some place to eat, after C R Patna (once you deviate from Bangalore-Mangalore highway), you are not far from getting disappointed. Kushalnagar has one or 2 good restaurants but that again is not really ...Read More

We had travelled by sleeper bus, since it was a ghat road from Bangalore to Madikeri. What surprised me was the punctuality, they had promised that we would reach Coorg in 6 hours and we reached on time. The bus was well-maintained and the staff behaviour was excellent. Water bottles were also provided, so travellers don’t need to carry anything. May be one can carry tablets to prevent vomiting.

The route from Bangalore to Madikeri is generally good. Number of good hotels for food and washroom facilities exist. We took our Breakfast at Adyar Ananda Restaurant on way. We normally take food at Kamat Lokaruchi which is another 24 km from Ananda. Road condition is quite good except for a small duration, where we took KR sagar road to avoid Mysore.

"Good Drive"

The journey from Bangalore to Madikeri was very good as the road surface was good, enabling an average speed of 60 kmph. Food stops were plenty between Ramanagaram and Mysore but after that it was few and far between, mostly CCDs on the way. For those travelling to Madikeri for the first time would have to be very careful while driving along the Ring Road, which though broad enough has many two-wheelers taking to the middle of the road and moving helter-skelter. One big disadvantage is that there is no destination sign at the turn to Madikeri, which should be there at the second signal on this road. Otherwise, the ride to Madikeri was good.

We started from Banglore at around 6 and reached Kushal Nagar 10. The route you go from Banglore has various restaurants which includes Mc D, cafe coffee day everything so you no need to carry any food items. In Kushal Nagar the main attraction is Buddhist Monestary (Temple). You can visit Cauvery Nisargadama but there is nothing much interesting but if you can ride over elephant in that place. Water rafting is one thing which I want to do but as it is summer there is no water to do rafting but they told us you can go for still water ride which I did not prefer. From there you can go to Dubare Elephant Camp (Timings morning till 11 and evening after 4 the camp will be open) After visiting these if you are sport fanatic you can go for go carting, paint ball which will be available in the ...Read More
