december 2020 road review
Dec 2020
hi everyone travelled on 16 december 2020 from bangalore to mangalore, upto hassan we get toll roads and road is super, from hassan to sakleshpur in one lane higways with patched roads so apx speed 60 km and once enter shiradi ghat most of the roads are concrete after ghat roads are ok but no pot holes but bumbpy roads need 7 hr minimum to travel with a stop over for 20- mintues. The last stretch to mangalore is 4 lane which will give life to you for finishing your journey. the highways have lot of traffice especially from hassan to sakleshpur and nearing mangalore.

Regular travellers in this road by bus or driving a car are the ill fated people.
Jan 2020
I am a regular traveller in this route. This road is hardly Ok for a year or two. This road has seen newly laid concrete roads at the ghat section go off quickly. From Mangalore to Hassan via Shiradi Ghat has been travellers nightmare. Tax payers money has gone down the drain or to somebody's pocket by way of repairs, relaying etc. Widening of the road has been "under progress" still since a very long time. It is a typical example of how corruption, apathy and inefficiency of politicians and bureaucrats can make common man suffer. They have recently done patch work. Hope it will stand for sometime.

Very Bad road from Hassan to Shiradi Ghat .

Very Bad road from Hassan to Shiradi Ghat . IN Karnataka these two are major cities and also it's a national Highway. No proper street lighting and road has damaged. Wondering why NHAI and Government is not taking any action.

The road between Hassan and Sakaleshpur is horrible!
Oct 2019
The road between Hassan and Mangalore is very very bad. The Shiradi ghat section is very dangerous except the stretches that were concreted. If you are driving your car, you should be extremely careful, lest you regret for choosing this route.

Bangalore Mangalore Highway via Shiradi Ghat
Oct 2019 • Couples
Very pathetic road. I suggest not to use this road to travel to Mangalore. Only Concrete road of 40kms you can enjoy the ride. Hassan to Sakleshpur and Gundya to Bantwala road conditions is too bad. If you love your car or bike or life avoid this route until it gets repaired.

Scenic and improving roads
Dec 2018
Ghat sections are scenic and especially river running in parallel to road. Pleasure to drive slow.
Some sections are dangerous to drive, need to be careful.

Picturesque Subrahmanya Ghat
Nov 2018 • Family
The most panoramic part of the journey between Bengaluru and Mangaluru via Hassan is undoubtedly the Subrahmanya Ghat section. Though we have used both the road and the rail routes, the latter is more fascinating in our opinion, and it should be more so for all the rail fans. While travelling from Mangaluru, the Ghat section begins from Subrahmanya Road located at an altitude of about 110 m above MSL. From here, the trains climb up to the height of 889 m, at an average speed of 30 Kmph to reach Sakleshpur, a small hill-station clad in absolute serenity, cocooned in the mountain ranges of the Western Ghats, in the state of Karnataka, en route to Hassan. This picturesque rail route of about 111 Km, passes through 57 tunnels, 109 bridges and about 25 water streams. The most preferred time to travel through this rail route is the immediate post monsoon season (September and October) when the streams are full and alive with amazingly lush green vegetation. This year, of course, the heavy rains of August 2018 have caused damages in several places and are being restored.

Great ride
Jun 2018
It was a wonderful ride from Udupi to Bangalore... Beauty of the western ghats can’t be summarised in words. I wish people stop throwing garbage along the sides of the road.

FROM BANGALORE TO MANGALORE AND RETURN
Jan 2018 • Family
We actually do not know which was the best route from Hassan to Mangalore, we do not belong to karnataka state as we are from Andhra Pradesh ie., from Ongole. Our daughter is studying in NIT Surathkal. We wished to visit her during Pongal Holidays. We started at 2.30 pm from Ongole and reached Kadapa at 7 PM and stayed in Kadapa that night at our friend's house. We started at 7 am the next day ie., 12 Jan 2018 at 7.15 am to Bangalore which is 250 kilometres. The road is not in a good shape with lots of patches but not with pits. We reached Bangalore at 12 PM and headed towards Mangalore with Google Maps. One side of NH 75 is being closed for fresh layer and we had to go through the service road, which took nearly 2 hours to reach the exit towards Hassan and Mangalore. We took lunch at 2.30 PM and headed towards Hassan. By 5PM we reached Hassan and stopped for fuel. I enquired about the condition of the road and a truck driver said that the road near Sakelspur is very bad and warned to be careful since our car is Swift is Dzire. At 6.30 PM it became dark and we could not enjoy any thing on the way. At 8 PM we reached the bad section of the road and had a torrid time as there are many path holes and pits. That 10 KM stretch took one hour to pass. After that We asked our kid to send the location via., whatsapp and without any confusion we reached NIT guest house at 10 PM. Stayed there for 4 days and visited UDUPI, local beaches, Sringeri. In the mean time, read reviews about the other alternatives on our way back home. Read reviews in this site ie., Trip advisor and talked to two or three people who drove through this Western ghats. Finally, decided to go to Dharmasthala and deicide whether to go throught Saklespur or Charmady Ghat. Asked a local lad about the best route and he suggested to go to Ujire juntion, Mudigere, Belur and Bangalore. Started at 10 am from Dharmasthala, we reached belur at 1 PM through an excellent road via., Charmady and enjoyed the nature all the way through. From Beluru to Bangalore it is awesome. Thanks for the guy, who advised me at Dharmasthala.

bad road - shiradi ghat
Dec 2017 • Couples
We traveled on this route in the last week of December. The road condition is pathetic on the ghat section. So much so that you will have to get onto the incoming vehicle lane to be able to find some stable ground to drive your car on. you will be constantly alternating between 1st and 2nd gear for most part of the ghat section. so be prepared for a bumpy ride.
