Trichy to Namakkal road is not in good condition. So I am very worried about this travel by this way. But Namakkal to Salem is good four way track. So this way to ride very easily. So Trichy to Namakkal you choose Karur way, is this also highway track.

The distance between Trichy and Salem, is almost 140 km and it takes not more than three hours to reach Salem, from Trichy. One can take the state highway # 6 till Namakkal, crossing Thottiyam in between and then, take NH7 and drive for 50 km to reach Salem, crossing Mallur and Athanur along the way. One can take a break at Namakkal, for lunch or just tea and refueling. The road, after touching NH7, is very good.
