Hyderabad-Dandeli-Goa-Chikmagalur-Hyderabad Road Trip

Recommended Posts

I'm planning a 9 days road trip along with my wife.

I have these places in my mind but not sure that the days are sufficient to travel these distance and explore the places.

 

We are planning a stay at Dandeli for 1 or 2 days, & at Goa for another 1 or 2 Days.

Your suggestions and feedback will be very helpful.

I'm driving a Volkswagen polo 1.2 comfortline.  Dhoodsagar & Jog falls are the few place,s I'm looking to explore on the way.

 

Thank you.

Hi @Viswa Devabattula... below is the possible route map which Google map suggests and suggestion for planning your trip,

 

Starting from Hyderabad, reach Dandeli and stay for couple of days. Then go to Dudhsagar falls on the way to Goa. As per you plan again couple of days in Goa and then take a different route to Jog falls. Before Jog falls, you can also visit Gokarna beach. Then finally return back to Hyderabad.

 

Day 1: From Hyderabad to Dandeli.

Day 2 & 3: Stay & hangaround in Dandeli.

Day 4: Visit Dudhsagar falls enroute to Goa.

Day 5 & 6: Stay & hangaround in Goa.

Day 7: Visit Gokarna beach, Jog falls & end your day in Shivamogga.

Day 8: Reach Hyderabad.

 

Day 9: You will have 1 full day to cherish the moments and relax after your long drive.

Few tips from my side.

1. Make sure there is water flow in Dandeli, without water rafting it is waste of time. 

2. I heard Dudhsagar falls is closed, please do some research before venturing.

I would suggest the following plan.

Day-1/2/3

  • Hyderabad to Chikmagalur 
  • If you hate speed bumps, best route is via Bangalore. 
  • It can be done in a single day without any issue.
  • Stay in Chikmagalur town and explore the places around, accommodations are cheap during weekdays.
  • If you are planning on a long weekend, prebook your stay.

Refer the following link  for places to visit.

 

Day - 4

  • Chikmagalur to Gokarna Via Jog falls
  • Start early in the morning, roads are single lane and will consume lot of time
  • Pre-book accommodation at Gokarna, accommodations at Gokarna are tricky. Limited options. 

Day - 5

  • Gokarna to Colva (South Goa)
  • Stay in south Goa
  • Visit Butterfly Island
  • Local boats will take you to this place with minimal charges
  • Enjoy the calm and peaceful beaches of South Goa
  • You can get some beach view resorts at reasonable pricing 

Day - 6/7

  • Explore the beaches around South/North Goa
  • Check this link out for places to visit in Goa

Day -8/9

  • Start back from Goa to Hyderabad
  • Start early in the morning 
  • Best route from Hyderabad to Goa link

Lovely information @b@r@n . @Viswa Devabattula As said by @Ranger, Make sure about the water rafting being open during the time of your visit. The frequency of this happening always is very seasonal as it depends on the water flow in the Khali river. Don't forget to contact the accommodation person or the camping site person about this being opened, otherwise the forest trails in dandeli are good for a night camp.

Also, I am hoping Dudhsagar would be opened for your visit as there is not much water flow at present.

Yes it is safe.
Personally, I would suggest you to avoid a night drive.
Hyderabad to Goa route is a mess. 
If you are driving with family, try to cover it during day time.

It definitely is safe @Viswa Devabattula, provided you need to be very sure about the route that you are going to take about not getting lost in the middle of no where as you may not find people in the mid of the night to ask for any reference. But, I don't think you would come across such a situation. Go for it.
