Chennai to Ooty via C'batore

I made a short trip to Coimbatore(Sulur) / Ootacammund last week. The viva drives really well. From standstill to 100 in under 12 sec is awesome. The way to C'batore was alright. Took the famous GST road via Chengalpattu, Tindivanam, Villupuram, Attur, Salem, Erode to Sulur and then NH47 from Sulur to Ooty via Somnur, Amnur, Mettupalayam and Coonoor. The tarmac was amazing till Villupuram and then .... Well !! the less mentioned .. the better.

These pics were taken 30 kms off Villupuram.

On the way back we took the NH7. the roads were supercool. We clocked about 250 Kms between Dharmapuri and Vellore in about 2+1/2 hours and the speedo read was atleast 110 kmph at any given point in time. To join the NH7 you still gotta go to Erode, Salem and then join the NH7 to Chennai (part of the Golden Quadrilateral) via Dharmapuri, Krishnagiri and Vellore. Trust me; the drive is worth a trip. I am definitely going back for more.
