Bangalore->Hosur->Krishnagiri->Dharmapuri->SalemIf you are starting from Bangalore, the above route is the easiest and the shortest. We started on a Friday evening at around 4:30 PM. You need to cross Anamalai Tiger Reserve and Chinnar WildLife en route to Marayoor. Considering wildlife safety aspects, we decided to stay the night at Salem. This also gave us the time to recharge and prepare ourselves for the thrilling ride in the Ghat section, the next day.Travel tip: Decide if you want to start in the morning or evening! In my opinion, a night journey on the highway is always more adventurous, but travelling during the day in the curvy mountain roads provides you with breathtaking views with the terrain changing every few kilometers!
