By Road - Mysore to Calicut (Kerala)

Can anyone tell me how long it would take by road to travel from Mysore to Calicut? It has been some years since I was in Calicut. Does the NH 212 go between the two places?

Thanks.

Hi lgirl,

You are right, NH212 is Calicut- Kalpetta -Sultan Battery- Gundlupet - Mysore.

You can use Calicut-Kuttiadi-Manathavady route as well, whcih is a state highway and a trickier road to negotiate with 16 or so hairpin bends when it reaches kuttiadi "churam" (cliff edge tunnels)

NH212 also has churam called thamarassery churam more or less same distance through cliffs- but should be much easier to negotiate since it is a NH. I travelled along the mananthavady road nearly 10-11 years ago and the scenary was simply amazing.

There are bus services from Mysore including a Volvo service by KSRTC which can be booked online.

Thank you all for the replies. I have been away for a few days so only able to get back on here today.

I thought the distance was about 150 kms. What I need to know is how long the journey will take by road (taxi). Shridhar is suggesting no more than 7 hours??! Seems a long journey for 150 kms!

Hi lgirl

I just checked the KSRTC online reservation link traveltime is shown between 5.30 to 6.30 hrs, so my guess was close :-)

I don't want to travel by bus Shridhar as the time involved will be longer than taxi. Thanks anyway.

Any more advice anyone? I am assuming the 150 km should be covered in 3 hours max but I don't know the roads.

Distance between Mysore and Calicut is around 200-210 Km so even if you are going by cab it will take around 5.5-6 hrs as the roads are not that wide and there is Ghat section as well which will consume time.
