    Road Trip to Pondicherry Feb 2018

    Hello Folks, we school friends go on Road Trip once/twice in a year and mostly we visited Goa or Konkan for last few years.

    Now we are planning Long Distance trip and finalized Pondicherry

    We will be driving my Adventure 1.6 :Italy.

    Below is Road Trip plan however we may visit Dhanushkodi first and while returning to Pune we will visit Pondicherry and stay 2 days there.

    On Day 1 we will target Dhanushkodi as we have 3 drives (out of 4) who has good experience of long distance driving.


    Please suggest road from Banglore to Dhanushkodi.

    Suggestions for must visit places are welcome.

    This will be our route as we want to cover most of the parts of South India. Though it is not possible to cover everything in one go but this will help us to explore the coastal route.

    I asked this on our MFW group chat where Pradeep suggested to go through this route:

    Bangalore - Madurai - Dhanushkodi.

    Its a Highway all along. Advised to avoid going via Pondy.
