Getting Around in Karnataka

You can travel around Karnataka mainly by road and by rail. The major communications links are Bangalore, Mangalore, Mysore, Hassan and Hospet.

Undoubtedly the southern areas are far easier to get to than those in the north; the interesting sites in the south are Bangalore, Mangalore, Madikeri (in Coorg), the wildlife sanctuaries of Bandipur and Nagarhole, Mysore and its neighbouring town of Srirangapatnam, and the Hoysala cities of Belur and Halebid. The list is long and four out of five of Karnataka’s major communication hubs cater to this area. Mangalore and Bangalore, the only two cities with airports both serve this, the southern region.

The major point of arrival and departure for the historic and superbly atmospheric towns of Hampi, Badami, Pattadakal, Aihole, Bijapur, Gulbarga and Bidar is Hospet. It is easier to travel to this area from Goa or Maharashtra, which lie to the northwest and north of Karnataka, respectively. From within Karnataka, it would probably be best to get to these places by rail.
