Hyderabad-Jogg Falls-Murudeshwar-Gokarna-Hyderabd

Recommended Posts

Hi,I am planing a family road trip from Hyderabad to Jogg falls and want to visit Murudeshwar and Gokarna(if possible).

 

Dates : 21st December 2018 to  25th December 2018.

 

Please suggest the best route to reach Jogg falls  from Hyderabad.Also suggest which place to take a night halt before reaching Jogg falls.

 

Or is it better to have a night halt in Bengaluru(Because it is really a nice stretch from Hyd to Blore) and then start to Jogg falls the next day morning?

 

Please help me out in this.Thanks in advance.

Avoid Raichur road,

It is under construction.

Only option is via 

Hyderabad --> Kurnool --> Alur --> Ballari --> Davanagere --> Jogfalls

Going via Bangalore, it is too long.  Not worth it.

Usually, I would have suggested Hampi.

But in December hotels are expensive in Hampi.

 

If you don't mind the budget, Hampi is ideal stopover. 

We stayed in Clarsk Inn, last week.

Hotel is good. 

 

Let me us know, what all places you are planning to explore.

So that we can suggest options, which can fit 5 days plan.

Firstly Thank you so much for your information.

 

I want to visit jogg falls and murudeshwar and if possible visit gokarna.I basically want this as a relaxing trip and not to explore much.Just want to see jogg falls and Murudeshwar and chill . :)

If not Hampi, which place would be the best to halt?

Very less water flow in December. 

It is best during monsoon/post monsoon. 

December is too late.

 

Why not places like Chikmagalur?

If you are driving with family,

Book you accommodations well in advance. 

In December accommodation availability is very difficult.  

 

All the best and drive safe.

      Finally I did a good trip in my new car with family and did a decent  amount of miles which was quite an adventure due the flood warning at mangalore , zero visibility warning at chikmangalur.
       
      Route:
      Hyderabad-Chikmangalur-Dharmasthala-mangalore-Udupi-murdeswar-kumta-hyderabad.
       
      We had our stay booked for 2 nights at chikmangalur,1 night  at mangalore,3 nights at kumta.
       
      Chikmanglur Stay: Treebo Sunrise (9/10) but one staff named Dharani was just outstanding.
      Mangalore Stay:Treebo Pappilo palace(3/10). Bad staff, bad rooms.
      Kumta stay: Blue ocean sands (8/10) isolated place near beach. It was isolated due to weekdays but when we were checking out on Saturday we saw the crowd coming in. The place was very peaceful and I like peaceful places
       
       
       
      Car:Jeep Compass Deisel Limited.
      Total distance : 2291.6
      Mileage:16.2
       
      Day1 :: Towards chikmangalur
      I had two route options to take one was a diversion from Ananthpur which looked short and the other one was through Hassan highway towards chikmangalur.
      Enroute saw that KIA motors factory was in full swing .
      Some pics below from day 1.
       

       

       

       

       
      Reached a decent hotel called treebo sunrise at chikmangalur by 7pm.
      it was raining cats and dogs in chikmangalur when we reached.So roaming anywhere in such heavy rain after sunset was not recommended by the hotel staff so we just walked around the city with raincoats and umbrellas . 
       
      Day2 ::
      We got up early to watch the sunrise from baba budan or mullayangiri. But we were stopped at the checkpoint citing no visibility in the ghat section and was asked to come once the rain comes down. We tried out luck at 10 am and were allowed in.Then the amazing greenery with a bit of drizzle while going up to mullayangiri was just heaven.Unfortunately right after 30 min rain fall was super heavy and driving up the hill became tough.

       

       

       

       

       

       

       

       
      Then we drove down with lot of difficulty due to slipping surface . The vehicles were stopped at the check post again .
      So we through it going other way to bababudan peak as once we go out of the checkpost we may not be let in.
      But saw the below and figured that I was the only one on this route and decided to turn back and out as it was becoming dark at 3 pm 😡😳🤔

       

       
      Drove around the beautiful city and checked out some places and headed back to the hotel.
       
      Day3 ::
      Kemmangudi and local temples was on my list for the day and some pics from that day .

       

       

       

       

       

       

       

       

       

       
      Did some local site seeing and again drove around the city where there was no traffic and only rainfall and the smell of earth was there. Mind you that the temperature was around 14 degrees.
      Rest of the day we were discussing the options and best way to reach mangalore . Shiradi ghat was closed since Jan-2018 and would open around July after the renovation work so the only option wasn’t charmadi ghat Which was not in a great condition because that was the only current route towards mangalore (with trucks,buses,cars,etc etc)
       
      Day4 ::
      Accepted to challenge the rain and weather and headed towards Dharmasthala temple through Charmadi ghat. The drive was not at all easy and the curves were filled with broken roads, potholes.Way too many buses and trucks were there.
      But of course the visuals onto my right and left were just amazing.

       

       

       

      Towards Dharmasthala by 10 am and reached the temple by 12:00.Out of the temple by 3:30 pm and reached mangalore by 5:30 pm and rested the entire evening.

       

       

       

       

       

       

       

       

       

       

       

       

      Day5 : Local mangalore tour with some temples , famous pabbas ice cream.
       
      Day6 :
      Checked out of mangalore towards Udipi.
      Spent time at Udipi temple and Malpe beach (really beautiful) from 12 to 3pm.
      Stopped at murdeswar for around 90 min and reached Kumta at 7:30 pm .
      The entire road from mangalore towards kumta was under construction with Toll Booths being constructed as well. For sure after an year this entire stretch is going to be lovely awesome 😎.

       

       

       

       

       

       

       

       

       

       

      Day7&8 :
      We did not take accommodation in Gokarna and instead stayed at Blue Ocean Sands resort at Kumta .Walkable from the beach thought felt isolated at the resort as being a weekday there were no folks at the resort .I would give 6/10 to the resort but 10/10 to the staff. Some pics below from the beaches in Kumta, gokarna.Gokarna we spent more time at OM beach as there was hardly any crowd and it was very peaceful.We went to a God forbidden 🚫 beach called kudle which lacked sense of cleanliness, filled with garbage,liquor bottles, plastic covers and even dead dogs.Then I am told that locals and shack owners would get the beach cleaned around August end as business would be there from August to March.
       

       

       

       

       

       

       

       

       

       

       
      Day9 :
      we checked out at 6 am towards Hyderabad and reached home at 7 pm.Took around 1 hour break.

      Had to go through another forest ghat which was beautiful and very pleasant as it had rained previous night.
      Once that forest drive was over the entire stretch till Raichur highway was a nightmare with very bad roads , animals and people walking across the roads as they do in their gardens.
      Reached home at around 7 pm.

       

       

       

       

       

      Ended the trip with below reading of my entire trip.
       
      Below were the routes taken by me ::
      Hyderabad to chikmangalur 

       
      Chikmanglur to Mangalore via Dharmasthala

       
      Mangalore to Kumta via Udipi and murdeswar

       
      Kumta to Hyderabad via gangavathi-Raichur
