I'm planning to do a road trip to Ooty by mid of next week. I would like to know the current road conditions especially after the recent rains.
There are 2 routes
1. Chennai - Dindivanam - Villupuram - Ulundurpet - Salem (by pass) -Avinashi - Annur - Mettupalayem - Ooty
2. Chennai - Vellore - Vaniyambadi - Krishnagiri - thoppur - Mettur - Gobi - Anthiyur - Sathi - Mettupalayem - Ooty
Since i'm a frequent traveler to Vellore and i know the bad strech till Arcod. Post which the road are fabulous. Likewise the i have travelling to Dindivanam often and do not know the road conditions beyond that. Last time when i traveled this route to Salem it was under construction (this was some 5 years back).
Currently i'm unaware of the road conditions, please help
to know the road conditions from Ulundurpet and Salem stretch.
As per google maps, the Ulundurpet - Salem road is the shortest amongst the other roads.
