Following Google maps is not always a good option. I was driving from Vellore to Yercaud and it instructed me to turn off before reaching Salem and took me on a route through Danishpet. This was the worst road I have driven in. Narrow, broken, lonely and probably dangerous. The scenery at times is great, but I wouldn’t advice this route at all!
A few clips from the dash cam as we drove down from Yercaud. This is the Yercaud – Salem Ghat road which we took on our way to Vellore via Salem, Dharmapuri. This route is a bit longer but way better than the other Ghat road that we took to climb up to Yercaud.
