    My Linea brought us back home after a long weekend trip of west coast covering Jog Falls, Murudeshwar and Gokarna starting 12th October to 15th October, 2013.
    Shortly before the start of this weekend, we realized that it is going to be a long weekend and if we take 15th off, we get around 5 days of leave (with 16th- Bakrid being an optional one). So after a long internal discussions between my wife, younger brother and my mom, we planned for trip to Murudeshwar covering Gokarna and Jog falls on the way.

    High level Stats along with the route:-

    Total Distance covered: 1213 kms
    Average Speed: 49 kms/hr
    Total trip Mileage: 11.4 kms/litre
    Total Travel Time: 24.33 hrs

    Onwards Journey Route from Bangalore to Jog Falls and then to Murudeshwar:
    Bangalore -> Tumkur -> Arasikere -> Shimoga -> Sagar -> Jog Falls -> Honavar -> Murudeshwar

    Return journey route from Murudeshwar to Bangalore:
    Same as above in opposite direction

    That is Murudeshwar Beach. I think there are very few beaches in India where you can take your car. Murudeshwar beach is one of them.

    Fantastic. How is the water in Jog Falls? I am planning to this trip over the mid November. Could have visited Dudsagar as well.

    We didn't stay at Gokarna actually. We stayed at Murudeshwar and from there we visited Gokarna.
    Will write complete details soon.

    Thanks. Even though it rained there, water level seems to be average now. I will post some more pictures soon.
    Right, since the trip was short, we could not plan to visit other nearby places.

    Excellent pictures. Jog falls is in my wish list, hope I will go there before this year end. I will try to group Mysore, Coorg and Jog falls in one visit with my family over a long week end.
