Chennai to Salem by Road (Car)


I'm planning to drive down to Salem by Car. Can you recommend the best route.

Also please let me know the approximate time it takes and details of places to stop for food.

We are travelling as a family in our hatch back car.

Best route is Chennai-Villupuram-Ulundurpet-Kallakurichi-Athur-Salem. Overall journey may take 5 hours.
