I moved to Yercaud via Salem. One could start in the morning, spend the day at the hill station and come back in the evening. Itís a small drive to chill the thrust and it was a pleasant drive through the hills. It is almost the centre place of Tamilnadu. You can go to all the major cities from here easily.

I travelled by State Express Transport Corporation (SETC) bus from Salem to Bangalore last month. Itís a semi sleeper bus and they donít provide any entertainment movies inside the bus neither reached the destination on proper time itís was waste travelling in this SETC bus. Nothing was provided.

A request to all the travellers please donít travel in this bus otherwise you are wasting your money completely.
