Ten things to do on a South Indian road trip

Highway – NH7
Origin – Bangalore
Destination – Yercaud
Distance travelled -230 kms

1. Savour a hot steaming cup of filter coffee
2. Zip drive on the smooth highway road fading into the hills on the horizon
3. Stop by for a meal on the charpoy at the “now discovered in South India” roadside dhabaas
4. Get heady or giddy on the 20 hairpin bends as you go 31 kms uphill from Salem
5. Wander in the coffee bean plantations
6. Rediscover how easy life can be, meander through the winding lanes along old world Gothic estates, churches and schools
7. Watch the hazy flickering lights of the distant city below as you soak in the crisp starry night above
8. If telescopes excite you, head to one of the panoramic view points for an eyeful of the scapes around
9. Get a flavor of local paraphernalia at the town market, you may just stumble upon organic yercaud coffee, made-in-china bubble gun toys, authentic Indian catapults et al – all being sold at the same counter
10. Savour a hot steaming cup of filter coffee yet again as you head back from a lazy weekend
