Distance:- 295 km North West of Bangalore
By Road: -

Chikkamagaluru district is not known for well maintained roads. . The poor state of the roads has hampered development of this district to some extent; more so because of the absence of even a good rail network in this district . The total length of roads in this district is 7264 km . There are only two National Highways that pass through this district. The National Highway NH-13 ( Sholapur to Mangalore ) passes through the towns of Koppa and Sringeri where as the National Highway NH-206 ( Bangalore to Honnavar ) passes through the towns of Kadur , Birur and Tarikere . There is a proposal to upgrade the existing state highways Tarikere - Belur , Sringeri - Hassan & Kadur - Mangalore to national highway status.

By Rail: -

The Kadur and Tarikere taluks have railway lines passing through them. The total length of railway line passing through the district is 91 km of which 51 km is in Kadur taluk and 40 km is in Tarikere taluk. Birur station is a major junction in this district where the railway line from Bangalore bifurcates into two, with one line going towards Hubli and the other towards Shimoga . The district headquarters, Chikkamagaluru city does not have a railway station which is one of the reasons for the isolation of Chikkamagaluru city from the rest of the state. A new line is being laid between Kadur and Sakleshpur in Hassan district which should pass through Chikkamagaluru city .

By Air: - Chikkamagaluru district does not have an airport. Airports at Mangalore , Bangalore and Hubli can be used as an alternative. However, there are plans to develop an airport near Marle village about 10 km from Chikkamagaluru city .
Route:- NH4 to Nalamangala then NH48 to Hassan via Kunigal then state road to Chikmagalur.
When to go:- Just after the rains, from mid September to February.
