I have started my journey from Bangalore at 7 Pm, went through Nice Road and exit at Hosur. I have travelled through AH 43/NH 7 Road, I have travelled on my own car, the journey was a very comfortable one, after reaching Salem took a halt for 4 hrs and then started our journey towards Palani after darshan reached Madurai at 4 Pm.

There were many sightseeing on the way, I suggest you to go for Hoggenkal Falls the road condition is good, there were only some of the dhabas on the way from Madurai to Rameswaram so better have lunch/dinner at Madurai itself, after finishing dinner reached Rameswaram early morning. Please carry enough water and also you might get confused with the routes so use Google Maps.

From Bangalore to Rameshwaram and From Rameshwaram to Bangalore I opted the same travellers services which was KPN Travels.

From Bangalore to Rameshwaram (Bus No. 9992) was very hectic due to some defect in the bus seat. I asked the conductor and the driver that their is some problem in my seat. I cannot sit straight as the leaver of the seat is free or not working. First it was very difficult for me to explain this simple problem to them due to the language barrier. I know only Hindi and English and they only understand their regional language. Even after knowing the problem they were unable to help me as the bus was already fully booked.

NOTE ** : One thing which I liked about KPN is they called my me on my mobile but because of low battery my phone was switched off.

This is one of the best roads you will find anywhere across India. Even after Madurai, its a single lane road stretch of about 160 km to Rameshwaram. The road is well-built and scenically too its an awesome drive. The bridge joining Rameswaram with the country is worth a stop and its one of its kind.

The roads are awesome with 6 lane till Madurai, Madurai to Rameswaram 2 lane travel. The roads are good. Its toll road. There is a toll to enter Rameshwarm and also to enter Indira Gandhi Bridge. The drive on bridge would be awesome. If driving in summer donít forget to have Tatinungu Fruit, delicious and cheap here. The sea is not clean as people have made it dirty. But its opposite in Danushkodi, with clear blue water seen in the sea.

Awesome journey and great road experience on the highways. Excellent roads, lot of hotels on the highways, pleasant drive. Toll fees are high but it is worth as they need to maintain the roads with such great quality. Plan your trip to visit Madurai which is on the way.

My mother-in-law went to Varanasi and there is a strong belief that people visited Varanasi should visit Rameshwaram within one year and the holy theertham they got from Varanasi has to be used for the gGd in Rameshwaram. Hence, we planned the trip and my family along with my in-laws visited...more »
