As far as places to see en route is concerned, you can stop at Chitradurga. It is famous for the Chitradurga fort and the Chandravalli caves.

Devanagere (the heart of Karnataka) is another destination that is worth checking out. It has a number of ancient temples and a beautiful lake called Kunduvada kere. Apart from that, Bathi Gudda, Kondajji, Uchangidurga and Shanthi Sagara are some of the nearby places around Devanagere.

The route takes you to the twin cities of Hubli and Dharwar. Hubli is a fast growing city after Bangalore. There are many hotels here in case you wish to stopover for the night. The Unkal lake and the Nrupatunga Hill are the major tourist spots in the area.

Kolhapur is another great place to explore. You will find everything from museums, amusement parks, to lakes, temples, forts and wildlife sanctuaries. To know more about Kolhapur, please visit our Kolhapur Travel Guide page.

Satara is another town that will fall on your way to Shirdi. This place is especially famous for a sweet called Kandi Pedhe. And if you decide to stop over at Satara, you must visit the Kas plateau (Valley of Flowers) - a world heritage site. Other nearby attractions include the Vajrai waterfall, Ajinkyatara fort, Pateshwar, Chharbhinti and Sajjangarh fort.
