Chikmagalur has good road connectivity and more convenient to travel by Road rather than train or flight!! It is 245 Kms away from Bangalore and 178 kms from Mysore.

October to April is best season to visit, whereas due to heavy rain fall - the roads are little scary and not visible due to heavy fog/mist from May to August.

It’s better to have 2 days to cover the route.

Leave early to Mullayanagiri peak. Especially on weekend the traffic will be high and in rainy days the roads are not visible even after 2.00 - 3.00 PM just because of heavy rain clouds and fog. Spend one to two hours at the peak, enjoy the cold breeze, lush greenery, misty fog. Mullayanagiri is at an altitude of 1950 meters, & is the highest peak in Karnataka.
