I travelled with my family from Pondy through Yesvantpur express which was amazing. I went to the station at least an hour before and the train was ready for boarding with the AC on. I was really lucky to spend my time in the train itself before its actual start time. They do not provide blanket and pillow for free. You will have to pay Rs.25 to get one set for you.

We have traveled in a car which was a nice experience. The roads are in good condition with all facilities like petrol bunk, hotels, accommodation etc. The trees on both sides of the road are nice and adds a certain amount of beauty. And you feel that you are entering into a different world altogether. More »

The bus was on time, actually earlier than we expected. The sleeper bus was neat and clean and the A.C is also reasonably good. They did not halt anywhere as it was a late night bus. Note: The traveler\\\'s should note that the 9 or 10 o clock bus from Chennai reaches Salem early morning around 3.30 am. So its better to take late night bus to reach around 5. More »

We travelled to Yercaud from Pondicherry through vilupuram road. Till vilupuram it is a single road and after that the travel was really enjoyable. We were travelling the hill druing 8.00 pm in a dark environment. We experienced a nice breeze and seeing flood lights in yearcaud dowstairs was a nice one. There are around 20 hairpin bends and roads are neatly maintained. More »

Yercaud Express is a good choice as it departs at night and reaches Salem by early morning. It\'s a comfortable journey as we could sleep and reach Salem by early morning. So there is no tiredness. The toilets are clean no problem with toilets but the noise is too much for the passengers who are next to the doors. More »
