Default Mysore - Nagapattinam

Hi,

I plan to visit Mysore on 19th of this month for a friends marriage from Bangalore. On 21st June, I have plans to drive to Nagapattinam from Mysore. Request route info and the time taken from Mysore to Nagapattinam as I would be travelling with my little one who is all of 2 years. Kindly suggest the best route.

PS: Mods, I tried searching for a thread on this topic but could not find one.

Route would be:
Mysore-B'lore-Hosur-Salem-Namakkal-Musiri-Trichy-Tanjore-Thiruvarur-Nagapattnam

Road condition:
Mysore-B'lore-Salem-Namakkal --> excellent roads - 4 Laned.

Namakkal-Trichy --> Average. 2 Laned

Trichy-Tanjore --> Excellent raods - 4 laned.

Tanjore-Tiruvarur-Nagapattnam --> Average roads with big pot holes occassionally. Better avoid night driving this road.

Others can suggest if any better alternative for Tanjore-Nagapattnam.

There is no need to go to Bangalore. From Mysore, you can drive through Chamarajnagar > Sathy > Bhavani > Tiruchengode > Namakkal.
Mysore, Karnataka, India to Namakkal, Tamil Nadu, India - Google Maps
This is atleast about 150km shorter than when you go through Bangalore.

Roads are good through Mysore > Bhavani. Bhavani to Namakkal should also be not bad. This is only a small stretch anyway. But note the entire stretch is only a 2 laned highway.

The rest of the route from Namakkal is good as nfsfreak suggested. But please exercise caution in the Tanjore-Tiruvarur-Nagapattinam stretch as the roads are curvy with pot holes. But AFAIK there is no better alternative to this route.

You can also look for the much direct route
Mysore - Sathy - Bhavani - Tiruchengode - Namakkal - Trichy - Tanjore - Nagapattinam

Mysore - Bhavani - All 2 laned good roads
Bhavani - Namakkal - 2 laned, not sure about the road conditions.
Rest of the road condition is as per what nfsfreak has mentioned.

Yes even I agree to what @luvuride mentions. The route via Sathy/Bhavani is pretty decent and you avoid 140km of detour via Bangalore by taking this route.

Nh209, through which you descend Dimbam ghats is very good and also provides good scenery. If you start very early you can take the first break at Bhavani.

Do note that you have NH47 and NH7 bypassing at Bhavani and Namakkal. Hence these roads by-pass the town, While the SH goes through town.

Hence you need to find the right road for your destination.

What would you be driving? a M800? Sometimes it is easier to suggest a route when we know what you are going to ride on! How many hours do you plan to drive? Comfortable driving timings? are you the only one at the wheel? alternate drivers? would you like to halt somewhere en route? sometimes, even the small details matter a lot!

Thanks. I am driving my M800. May be one of the last long drives in my beloved car . Plan to upgrade sometime later this year or early next year.

What I need is good road to reach Nagapattinam with details of places where I can stop on the way as I am the only one at wheel.

Request some more details from fellow BHpians.

Route update:
Trichy - Nagappatinam (Via Tanjore, Thiruvarur)
Trichy - Tanjore: very good all the way. Work in progress near Thiruverumbur bridge (will slow you down a bit).

Tanjore-Thirukadayur-Nagapattinam: Roads range from Bad to worst. Better avoid driving in night.

Nagapattinam-Trichy (Via Thiruthuraipoondy, Mannargudi, Tanjore)
We chose to return via Nagai-Thiruthuraipoondy-Mannargudi-Tanjore-Trichy which adds around 15 Kms (suggested by cabbies) but roads are in good condition and much better compared to the other route. our return timings are very good compared to onward. (saved around 30 mins)
