    Would be nice if some one provided a detailed itinerary of the trip. Looks confusing for me as to when and where TFIans would be in the proposed 4 days.

    Let me try:

    Day 1 - 1st November

    6:00 AM depart Bangalore
    12:00 PM Arrive Hospet / Hampi. Check-in, lunch.

    Rest of day 1 spent visiting Hampi and if possible TB Dam.

    Day 2 - 2nd November

    First half - Cover the rest of Hampi
    Second Half - Visit Aihole, Badami and Pattadakal. Return to Hospet/Hampi for the night

    Day 3 - 3rd November

    6:00 AM depart Hospet / Hampi
    1:00 PM arrive Gokarna. Check-in, Lunch

    Rest of the day - beach and other places to see in Gokarna

    Day 4 - 4th November

    06:00 AM depart Gokarna
    12:00 PM - Sringeri
    4:00 PM leave Sringeri and head back to Bangalore.

    I have not verified the distances and duration. Just thought of giving a sketch, so it will be easier for the others to modify to make it doable.

    @Sat-Chit-Ananda - Where are you buddy?

  3. Rajan,

    Bangalore to Hampi - 340 kms -6 hours
    Hampi to Badami - 132kms -3 hours
    Badami - Aihole 35.3kms -1 hour
    Aihole - Pattadkal - 19kms -30 minutes

    We may need full two days to see all.So we should be leaving little earlier than 6 AM to get that 1-2 hours more time.

    Question is should we return back to Hampi or start towards Gokarna?

    Pattadakal to Gokarna - 291 kms - 5.5 hours

    Plan looks fine.

    Let me help you with the itinerary..

    Day 1
    BLR- Hospet (4am-10am)
    Breakfast+Rest+power nap (10am-11.30am)
    Cover Hampi(12pm-7pm) places to cover in order
    1. Vittala Temple
    2. Zenana Enclosure (Lotus Mahal)
    3.Hazara Rama (Jain Temple)+ Museum
    4. Diwan-e -Aam, Royal Enclosure
    5.Krishna Temple
    6.Hampi bazaar and surrounding temples

    Day 2
    Hospet- Kudalasangama (8am-10am) breakfast at Kudalasangama Kamat
    Kudalasangama- Aihole (11.30pm-12.15pm)
    Aihole- Pattadakal (12.45pm-1pm)
    Pattadakal - Badami (2pm-2.15pm)
    2.15pm- Lunch
    3pm-Bhootnath temple
    4pm- Caves
    5pm - Tea break

    I would suggest Badami as base for the night, however if you wish to head back to Hospet you could do that as well (Badami - Hospet is 2.5hr drive so you would be back by 8-8.30pm approx

    Day 3 and 4 can be worked out as per convenience...

    Thanks man. Much appreciated. What would you say if we want to drive from Badami to Gokarna, starting at 5:00 PM on day 2? Doable? Any idea of the road conditions?

    Doable but you will be stressed as arrival time at Gokarna would be around 11pm since its two lane all the way to Ankola- so I would suggest halt at Badami. Roads are good from Badami to Hubli and excellent from Hubli to Ankola junction

    Badami as base on day2 would relieve the stress and you can start fresh on day3 at 5am, travel time is 6+ hours...
