How is road between mysore WayNad via Gundalpet, sulthanbatery?
Hi ..Road condition is good (except frequent road humps in the forest area ) ..i suggest you to try Mysore -HD KOTE -MANATHAVADY ROAD (3 hours journey to wayand from mysore ) ..Its a good condition road with lots of natural scenery including beechanahalli dam views .. Please note Forest gate after HD Kote will be closed by 5.00pm Route A" and "Route B" of the options mentioned in Mysore to Wayanad route map, both are to Mananthavady town. For "Route C" see Mysore to Sulthan Bathery. "Route A" is essentially a 130km drive from Mysore City to Mananthavady town in Wayanad (Kerala) via Hunsur, Nagarhole and Kutta. While "Route B" is 115km drive from Mysore to Mananthavady via HD Kote, Nagarhole, Bavali. Both are totally separate routes till they join at Kattikulam in Wayanad, some 10km before Mananthavady town.
