I will be visiting Bangalore in the mid of April to attend a friend's wedding. Once the ceremony is over, I would like to go for a 2-3 days trip to a nearby destination, preferably a hill station. I have heard a lot about Chikmagalur and it seems to be a good choice. I won't be availing any public transport service and plan to hire a self-drive vehicle from ZoomCar for this trip. Any idea what would be the best route from Bangalore to Chikmagalur. Google suggests quite a few options, but I have never been to that part of India, so basically I would appreciate a first-hand guidance from people who have done this trip by road. I am not looking for the shortest route, but the one which has well maintained roads will be preferable.
