Kollur Experience: Accessibility with train is the best. the station to look for during reservations is Mookambika Road Byndoor (BYNR). the daily trains are limited and Netravati from and to mumbai arrives at very odd timing of 0200am. Taxi from/to station is fixed rate of 400/450 respectively. drive up is good and scenic. there are numerous hotels .
Food, sight-seeing and shopping: Food is south indian and thali in the afternoon. it is tasty and preparation is generally hygienic. There are numerous hotels catering to your needs. finding Non veg will be a tad difficult.
Activities & things to do: Visit Murudeshwar. well built shiva temple. with along side beach for water sports. it is a tourist destination so be ready to shell out some money. taxi from Kollur to Murudeshwar costed Rs1200/-.
another interesting place is Kodachadri. This is the abode of the goddess. 4 wheel drive vehicle is a must. otherwise jeeps ply at regular intervals. some of the bends and turns are hair raising. the driver ensures that you evoke the god numerous times in this journey . the journey ends with a deep respect for the Goddess , driver and your back in that order.
Travel tips, How to reach, travel warnings etc: Travel warning. ensure that your wake up the person at the counter and ask for the exact position of your coach. The person there gave us entirely opposite directions for our coach and we had to walk the whole length of the train. the trains stops for 1 min in this stop and the rest of the stations in this leg so changing will be difficult.
