chennai - palakkad trip

Discussion in 'Travelogues & Experiences' started by Cuty Red, Mar 19, 2012.

  1. I did a chennai - palakkad (malampuzha) trip over this weekend with family .

    Total Distance travelled 1300 +

    Route taken : Chennai - Trichy - Dindigul - Palani - Pollachi - Pallakad.

    Wonderful route all the way ..

    Travel Time 7.30 hrs one side + 1.30 hrs break.

    Avg speed 82 kmph

    Chennai - Trichy - Dindigul .. No need to say about this wonderful 4 lane road .. Constant speed of 140 - 180 was cake walk for my beauty ..

    Dindigul - Palakkad - Great , smooth 2 lane road .Can easily do speed of 120 + on this route .

    The small towns inbetween was little conjusted and 3 -4 rail crosses that pop up suddenly on this smooth road was a disturbance :) . Apart from that no issue on this route.

    Since the route was good we took the same route for the return journey and reached back home by 7 pm , sunday ..

    Hey Cinju ..
    Sorry .. No pics for this trip though i took camera .. Was little busy ..
    Mileage was around 15.5kmpl for the whole trip which was acceptable for the way i drove her on NH .
    The rule was simple for me .. In NH drive fast and in city limits treat her like a baby with soft touches .. :)

    Yeah it was very fun driving and was really surprised with the smooth road.

    Ramesh aka Ramjn gave confidence for taking this route .

    :eek:..This Avg speed is superb. Are the roads that good in South India? and we here in Pune will keep on feeling proud of that bad Pune-Mumbai expressway, which anyway is going from Bad to Worse now.

    Achieving this speed in these roads is easy. I am surprised Ajit did not touch 95+ given his earlier antics.. :p
  8. yeah it is good .. a pleasant surprise ..

    Srini , If we have 90 horses in hand , a car that is glued to tarmac at any speed , a wonderful set of breaks that is much superior than what we are used to .. Dont you think that we enjoy taking her on NH with some stupid reasons ? :)

    And if we hav a family that enjoys to travel and is accompanying us then what more we need?

    Niranjan, at least in Tamilnadu, almost 70% of NH has been converted to 4 Lane. And almost 60-70% of SH's are in good shape.
