We took Blore-Mlore route via shirdi ghats. Only trouble was Shirdi ghats where roads are not motorable. But there's good news that there is an impending visit by Japanese Emperor in this year (2014). Expecting Shirdi ghats to revive its lost glory!rnrnWe started in the morning (8 am) from Mahalaxmi layout and reached our destination by 2 PM. We alighted at Ossoor, a coffee-bay hotel, for our breakfast at 11 am. That's a good stop to stop by. rnrnWhile returning, we diverted via Charmadi ghats, which has an excellent treat for your eyes. But it takes 1-2 hrs extra time to reach back to your destination.

They don't change the bed covers. The bus stinks. The staffs didn't have courtesy. Bus was delayed. No status updates. Cant get any information from the bus attenders on Dharmasthala. Roads are bad and rash driving. A great combination for accidents. If you have lot of luggage then you are in hell. They have no room for passenger's luggage as they have to take care of transporting private goods.
