The distance between Gokarna and Bangalore, is around 500 km and it takes around 10 hours to reach Gokarna from Bangalore, by car. The route is as follows: Bangalore - (NH4) Tumkur - (NH 206) Gubbi - (NH 206) Tiptur - (NH 206) Arsikere - (NH 206) Kadur - (NH 206) Tarikere - (NH206) Bhadravati - (NH206) Shimoga - (NH206) Sagar - (NH206) Honavar - (NH17) Kumta - Gokarna.
The road between Bhadravati and Shimoga, which is almost 30 km, is not that good. Try taking a break before Kadur, at a restaurant called Masala, for meals. The food served there, is hygienic and tasty.

Amazing Road, NH-4 an awesome highway, almost 5 toll gates where you end up paying Rs 300, but totally worth it. Post NH-4, it takes you through many State highways for 150 km. Good cottages to stay at. Two amazing beaches which are a must visit include Om and Kudle beach, don't miss these two amazing sceneries. The food available is bad and be backed up for the same.
Its just another bus journey, could have been better if it didn't got late by couple of hours. Sometimes buses do make longer stops and travellers find its unimportant and makes buses reach late to the destination. Thats what happened with this bus too. Provides Wifi can be utilized for bus tracking and whatsapp.
I have selected VRL Travels sleeper coach for my journey to Gokarna on Dec 26th 2014. I travelled during night time which is the best time to travel between these two places. I have selected these travels because I am aware that they have their best service in Bangalore. The whole journey was good, smooth and peaceful. The seats were in great condition. I would like to advice my friends to take bus journey from VRL travels. I am very much satisfied !!!
We five of us travelled in my friend's I-20 with my friend (car owner) being the only driver. We started at 5 am from Bangalore and reached Kumta at 1 pm. Owing to the quality of highway, my friend dint even feel the slightest of the problem roaming though the highway. The highway offers scenic highlights including windmills of Chitradurga. You would find many Kamat Restaurants to serve your bellies.
