    Yes the Kuppanur route is narrow but there was very little traffic on this route so it wasn't really a bother.

    As I mentioned earlier. I plan to do the trip again this weekend. Any idea how good the roads are now after all the rains?

    Mods: Apologies for multiple posts. Do merge both of the posts.

    I've been Yercaud side recently, but rarely I've had issues with roads to reach Yercaud :)

    But do stay away from the route I mentioned, its pure SUV terrain. Sorry don't have pictures, will do that route soon sometime and post pictures.

  4. After rains, the route from salem will be good but I don't know the condition of other route as I always prefer to take the salem-yercaud route.. And I heard that there was a landslide at only one place on the way. But this was a week ago. No risks. Route is perfect.

    From Salem, I suggest to take Ayodhyapattinam-Kuppanur-Yercaud. This is a scenic road and less known. Probably you can do this for onward and for return use the regular Yercaud-Salem road.

    Route Link - Bangalore, Karnataka to Yercaud, Tamil Nadu - Google Maps

    You will have to drive on the Salem bypass to hit Ayodhyapattinam (Salem-Ulundurpet NH79). From there drive towards Harur. In about 5 kms. from Ayodhyapattinam, you will reach Kuppanur where you will have to take left to hit the ghats.
