Nice road trip. Your trip would add more fun if you plan it with a car. Also if you drive on your own then it gears up the enjoyment. Safe roads from chennai to salem, also the hill station is very easy to drive and can reach up the hill in 45mins max. Really worth going by car to this place where it would also help you reach place in and around Yercaud.

The drive through ghat road is very fascinating. Yercaud town is very small and congested. Most of the roads are well maintained and you can enjoy the natures beauty. A good place to relax. While choosing the places of attraction to visit better avoid the Anna park, deer park lake etc. Other view points and botanical garden are good.

Felt very bored in chennai life. Went for a small trip with my wife and Kid. Felt bit relaxed. Car drive was good. Falls was not good. very steep to reach. No water too. So its waste. Other place looks good. Enjoyed there. You all can enjoy a small budget relaxed trip there.

The train was good. 6 hours maximum to reach Salem. From there take bus or cab. Go by car if possible. They will charge you 800. Auto is more cheaper. Salem is a good place though. You can visit Salem if possible. The station has everything except accommodation.
