if your destination is straight pondicherry then you need to take NH7 to madurai, 45B to trichy, 45 till villupuram and NH45A to pondicherry.

The NH are pretty good to drive..

that will be the best route or the ECR route which might be lengthier.

are you trying to cover some places in between???

Thanks for the quick response friend....We plan to drive straight to Pondi..on return, we plan to cover Velamkanni church and Rameshwaram.However that depends on our health and mood to drive :) So for the return trip, I can choose ECR right? Any idea about ECR? Did you drive recently? How much time did it take for you on NH?

Once again thank you for getting back quickly as our trip is planned for this week-end.

Hi! I want to do a road trip from Pondicherry to Allepye. What all places are good to stop by. Im not interested in doing a touristy thing. Would appreciate if you can suggest some home or village stay on that route.
