      Route :

      Bangalore->Hosur->Krishnagiri->Vellore->Ranipet on NH4.

      Then take diversion off NH4 onto SH58 ( there are clear signboards)to Kanchipuram->Walajabad->Chengalpattu->Mahabs.

      Total 370km, 7.5 - 8 hrs.

      Roads are good throughout.

      An expensive option but completely worth it place:

      Hooi hooi.. Change of plan...Thursday evening Called up the the sea breeze hotel in mahabalipuram after reading the reviews and booked a resort in Pondi - kailash beach hotel. I knew this place would be hot as sun, but decided to go on as it would be a nice drive. Friday early morning,4:30 stared from ITPL.

      Route - ITPL, Sarjapura - athibele - Hosur - Krishnagiri- Thiruvannamalai - Tindivanam - Pondicherry. Total Distance 336 KM, Time taken 5 Hrs, 15 Minutes. Resort was in the cuddulore route, 10 km's from Pondi.

      We reached the hotel around 10 and had break fast before checking in. we were supposed to be there only by 12. But the manager got us the room in 1/2 hour. The room was neat, with A/C and couple of cup-boards and chairs.

      About hotel, the place is not so great for the amount you spell out. Its an Ok Place to be. Expect the delays in the lunch and dinner order about 45 minutes. Breakfast, you need to be the first one to go to have it otherwise again expect delays in refilling. More over the counter is unattended and you have to tell them twice to get any thing free or paid.

      I wanted some water to clean the windshield, the security offered to clean it, he said, just show me the car and it would be done. I went to the opposite compound where there car was parked, Showed him and given him the number as well. I went to check the status after my dinner, I found its unattended till night 9:45 and finally not done till next day morning. I did it next day morning.

      Other than this incident the stay was good, My son had a nice time in the beach and swimming pool. ( pool was not cleaned at least for the days when we stayed).

      We started our travel back today morning and had a quick round in the pondi town( actually I got lost in the city, NOw you know how bad I'm with directions ). went to find a Shell pump and mis leaded towards ECR Chennai. Couldn't find the shell pump and filled it full from an HP. ( its just 36 Rs per l).Spend some time in the town and left pondi by 12 and reached bangalore by 6 after spending some 40 Minutes on the way for lunch.

      The roads were excellent till krishnagiri, after that till thiruvannamalai, roads are patched through out, with not potholes but uneven roads. after thiruannamalai, road condition is better and was able to average 70 kmph ( Aprox ).
