@ Hacegates, Welcome to TFI. Wow! What a choice of places for your expedition. Surely it will be a scenic drive. Blore - Mangalore road condition is good except for few stretches in the ghat section. This was the latest update I got from my colleague who used this route. Route would be Blore - Hassan - Sakaleshpur - Mlore. Till Sakaleshpur, its a breeze to drive. No issues at all. Though have visited Karwar, haven't tried Mangalore - Karwar route. So not sure of the road conditions. Karwar has exotic beaches and do check for water sport activities.
