Bangalore to Kannur-adventurous,mindblowing journey

Route:Bangalore-Mysore-Virajpetta-Irritty-Mattanur-Kannur
Distance:324km

The main or attractive part of this journey is drive through the mountains. Iam offerin you one of the craziest drives in your life.You gotta go through this elephant forest near the Kerala-Karnataka border, and it's awesome. You actually can see the elephants on the road if you are lucky(unlucky??) ! The border is a mountain road with a lot of curves and its absolutely breathtaking with gorgeous cliffs and shore of lakes on the side. Dont forget to enjoy the local cuisine at some of the small restaurants along the way. Pullover from the road and take as many breaks as you need, whenever you hit a scenic view.


The main stops on the way are: Mysore-70 kms Virajpetta; after 90 kms from Mysore check out the estates and local roasted coffee; Mattanur-110 kms from Virajpetta;Kannur-50 kms from Mattanur.


Keep this in mind: Avoid July-Sep and check weather before you start. Don't miss Thalassery and the beaches around.(During these months the road condition will be very rough.)

(recommend Thalassery for good food-Talassery is known for Musleem cuisine. The biriyani is mouthwatering.)

Another route is Kannur - Calicut - Thamarassery(Wayanad) - Sultan Battery - Bandipur - Gundulpet - Mysore and then on to bangalore. It is about 80 Kms extra driving. But the road condition is always good.


But you will get more adventurous journey from the first route.

One does not have to go to Calicut(presently known as Kozhikode) to reach Bangalore, instead it would be better to take the following route where the road is also better.
Kannur-Koothuparambu-Nedumpoyil-Mananthavady-Panamara-Sulthan Battery-Gundulpet-Nanjangud-Mysore and then towards Bangalore.
I did make use of this route a week back where I and my wife drove all the way, which was quite interesting.
