Getting There

Bangalore to Mysore

140 kms long, this is an excellent 4 lane road. Leave early in the morning to avoid the infamous Bangalore Traffic. On the Mysore Ring Road turn right at Columbia Asia Hospital and head towards Yelawal on BM Road. This will save you both time and distance. You could also go right at Srirangapatna, over the rail line through Ranganathitu and Pumphouse to Yelawal. This route bypasses the entire city of Mysore. From Yelawal drive straight to Hunsur, Periyapatna and Kushalnagar (90kms). To download the speed breakers enroute, save this zip file containing a GPX Version (compatible to most GPS devices) and a Google Earth version.

Tumkur Road - Mangalore Highway

Alternatively you could come on Tumkur Road (NH 4) turn left at Nelamangala onto the Mangalore highway (NH 48) pass Kunigal and turn left at Channarayapatna. This is a new toll road and really good.

Turn right after 2 kms to Holenarsipur (about 20 kms). Cross the Hassan rail line turn left into Holenarsipur, turn right at the bus stand to Arakalgud (about 20 kms). Turn left just before Arakalgud to Ramnathpura, Konnanur (left) to Srirangala, Hebbale in Coorg.

This route is the same distance as the Mysore Road... In two or three places roadworks are yet to be complete. It is a comparatively less crowd and hence safe.

The Final Leg

From Kushalnagar head towards Madikeri. Turn left at Guddehosur which is 4 kms from the Kushalnagar bus stop. You are now on the road to Siddapur. Go 8 kms and you will see a large hall on the left and a stone sign saying Hosapatna. On the opposite side you will see a bus stop - turn just before the hall and proceed into the village.

There are a few roads to the right, ignore them, keep left, till you reach a house with sparkling white walls and two level roof, which make it easy to find and, of course, it is the last house on the right in the village of Hosapatna.
