We went from Bangalore-Krishnagiri-Thiruvannamalai (Ramana Ashram)-Pondicherry. Please do not take this route unless you really have to. Its great till Krishnagiri and then its just pathetic with bone breaking roads. Instead take Bangalore-Krishnagiri-Vellore-Arcot-Vandavasi-Tindivanam-Pondicherry. This was the road that we took while returning. From Bangalore to Vellore is a six lane road where you can zoom till 80-100 kmph easily. Very minimal construction is going on. From Tindivanam aga ...Read More

We were two families in the car, 4 adults and 2 children. The drive till Krishnagiri is amazing. Once you turn off the highway and head into the road via Thiruvannamalai, the jumpy bumpy road greets you. It is a single road from the turn off highway and riddled with potholes. There are villages and towns you pass where you can buy stuff like water, juice and snacks. The major stop for refuelling your stomach will either have to be Chengam (average food) or Thiruvannamalai (pretty good food). At ...Read More

One fine evening four friends just decided to take a road trip to Pondicherry. We started our journey at 6 30 in the morning from Hosur Road Bangalore. We took the NH-66. The roads are pretty good. There was a snitch at Krishnagiri where there was construction going on the highway. That apart the roads are six lane highways with smooth flowing traffic. The route is peppered with highway dhabas and tea stalls. There are some prominent hotels en-route. You can make a pit stop at Sarovar Portico ne ...Read More

"When driving from Bangalore to Pondicherry take NH46 and SH5"

We travelled from Bangalore (Malleshwaram) to Pondicherry by car. There are three possible routes but from our place the best will be the one via NH46. You would take NH7 till Krishnagiri at which point there is a left towards Vellore. The only downside with NH7 is that NH7 is crowded even for a national highway and there is a lot of lane changing by speeding drivers. Also there is almost always road repair works it seems and we had to spend half and hour in a traffic jam on a national highwa ...Read More

We started at 7. 30 am in the morning. The route taken was Bangalore-Hosur-Vellore-Kanchipuram-mahabalipuram-pondicherry. We stayed in Mahabalipuram for 2 days and then reached pondicherry. The review about mahabalipuram is also given. But, here I will concentrate on pondicherry. The route for throughout the journey is GREAT. About 15% of the journey is little rough as it goes through the village. ECR highway is also good, but was under repair in many places. Rest of the way was 6 lane roa ...Read More
