"Easy to reach by car"

Posted 7 Jan

Travelled as: Family

Though plenty of Buses available from Vellore, I started with my own car. Buses will take half a day to reach. However u can reach with in 3 hrs by car. Hardly 150 kms. travel includes NH and SH roads. and minimum toll plazas. Though we have to drive some rural areas outer ring road helps you to move without traffic. Keep any google maps or Here maps while crossing rural area such as Gudiyattam and vandavasi and tindivanam.




"Vellore to Pondicherry was a pleasant travel experience "

Travelling to Pondicherry from Vellore was a pleasant experience. The taxi operator told that it would take about 2-3 hours - 130 km. In fact we reached within 2. 5 hrs. We started from Vellore at 11:00 Am, after having breakfast. The road was quite smooth - no traffic jam in between. The entry to Pondicherry was slightly slow, but that is expected. On the way, we bought guava - which was excellent. It was just before Pondicherry. By the time we completed Guava, we reached Pondicherry.




"No AC bus service from Pondy to Vellore"

I travelled to Pondicherry in Tamil Nadu State Transport Corporation (TNSTC) Bus and it was the worst journey that I ever had. There is no AC bus service to Pondy from Vellore. The roads are worst and the bus is not at all comfortable. It makes us literally cry travelling in such buses.

Sorry, we could not find preference of Travellers for this route.
