    This is a thread to discuss about the roads, surrounds by nature at it's best, that you have encountered while sitting behind your steering wheel.
    My favourites are

    1. Ambolim ghat road(Sawanthwadi -Ambolim)
    2. NH 17 that runs parallel to Arabian sea(after Kundapura while going to North)
    3. Banglore Krishnagiri road. The view of hills is fabulous.
    4. Ooty -Kothagiri-Mettupalayam
    5. Munnar (I like the drive through the middle of tea plantations)

    Great thread Sun.

    Following are my favorites for the scenic in nature.

    Udumalpet-Maraiyur-Munnar Section - Udumalpet to Maraiyur is surrounded by forests where animal spotting is possible. Maraiyur to Munnar will have sandalwood estates and then tea plantations.

    Salem-Kuppanur-Yercaud Section - This is less known road but one of my favorite. I have done this route many times and in two wheeler too. It is scenic and enjoyable than the usual Salem-Yercaud road.

    Coimbatore-Kanuvai-Anaikatti Section - One of the beautiful road during the monsoon. I have driven this many times.

    Chennai-Pondicherry ECR - One of the evergreen and beautiful seaside highway.

    Hunsur-Kutta Section - This is a drive through the Nagarhole National park. Just awesome with the beauty of nature.

    Rameshwaram-Danushkodi Section - Beautiful stretch along the sea.

    Thanks Ramesh
    To where this route head towards?
    This route at night looks like celebrating Diwali with reflectors on both side of road:)

    That road should lead all the way to Nellipuzha in Kerala to merge with the Palakkad-Perinthalmanna Highway. But, I haven't driven till that point.

    Note : I forgot about our champions who had crossed borders to enter in to other countries.
    And I believe in future also more such events take place. Then how can the thread title restrict to only Indian roads:D
    Mods, Please change 'Indian roads' at the beginning of the title to 'Roads'
