“Scenic beauty”
Reviewed May 19, 2013

Food and travel was the best. The entire city of salem could be seen from the top while travelling. Climate was very cool and pleasant with lots of sight-seeing.

“Nicely maintained, thrilling ride”
Reviewed May 6, 2013

It does take close to an hour to complete this stretch. However when one sees how well maintained the road is and the scenery offered, this ride itself becomes an attraction. The 20 hair pin turns may get a bit nauseating for people with motion sickness.

Kudos to the local authorities for painting the project rocks and the turn with fluorescent white paint all through and maintaining the roads so well.

“Pleasure to drive road”
Reviewed April 20, 2013

The road leading from Salem to yercaud is one of the best roads on a hill road that I have driven. The entire stretch was smooth and well marked with directions and painted on sides for caution and easy visibility. The view is lovely and traffic is fairly disciplined. I saw many two wheelers driving on this road. There is a temple on the way. At some places some rocks a still jutting into the road posing some hazard to large vehicles.

“Beautiful view and well maintained road”
Reviewed April 3, 2013

We traveled in our own car but the ride was pleasant since the road is very well maintained. There are 20 hair pin bends and lot of monkeys sitting around the bends.
