Default Yelagiri Drive and Meet - Plan

Folks,

Here is the plan for Sunday, as most of you were looking forward to.

Start Off Meet Up:

We shall meet at the Navneet BMW Showroom on Hosur Road. For convenience a direction map can be found here: Navnit Motors - BMW Dealer Mumbai and Bangalore Adress

Time - 7:30 am Sharp.

Breakfast Stop:

A2B on NH7, around 27 Km from Hosur. Will approximately take one hour to reach there after we start off. After breakfast enjoy the drive till Krishnagiri, which is around 72 Km from Hosur, or 45 km from A2B approx.

First Roll-Call point: Krishnagiri Toll Booth.

Soon after this toll booth we have to divert from NH7 to NH 46 (towards left) (Golden Quadrilateral to Chennai). Then again enjoy the drive till Vaniyambadi toll booth on NH 46 (GQ) - approx distance from Krishnagiri is 54 Kms.

Second Roll-Call Point: Vaniyambadi Toll Booth.

All the cars from this point will go together. We shall identify a lead and a tail car from this point to make sure all the cars go together. Request all members to adhere to this and not zoom off as and when they wish.

Soon after we cross this Vaniyambadi toll booth, we will come across a fly over bridge (after around 1 or 2 kms from the booth). We WILL NOT go over the fly over (which goes to Chennai), instead we will take the left service road for taking a right/U turn towards Yelagiri (In short - we have to take a right deviation from Vaniyambadi for going towards Yalagiri). Once we have taken the right deviation from Vaniyambadi we have to drive for approx 13 kms on the narrow-but-good country road. Then we have to take a right turn from that road and drive approx 11 km to reach Yelagiri.

Activities at Yelagiri:
  1. We shall head to the Nature Park and spend of couple of hours - Mainly the place for discussions.
  2. We will head for lunch. I am in discussion with Landmark if they could provide a buffet lunch without prior bookings. Rate @ 200/- per head. Alternatively, Biriyani Lovers could pack up Biriyanis from Vaniyambadi or Ambur (adjacent to Vaniyambadi) - which is famous for Biriyani.
  3. Next visiting point after lunch is Punganoor Lake. Will spend some time there and by 4/4:30 will head back to Bangalore.
Tea Break and Final roll-call before departing: A2B on Hosur Road

Points to be noted:
  1. Credit cards are not accepted anywhere at Yelagiri; Since there are not many ATMs around, better to carry cash.
  2. Estimated cost per head would be around Rs. 500/-
  3. Please PM me your contact numbers (those who have still not) for coordination, Your CAR and number of members joining.
  4. Fuel is cheaper in TN.
  5. Keep a first-aid kit handy with all the essential medicines and remedies. There are very less medical stores or doctors in Yelagiri except a government primary health centre.
  6. Carry Plenty of water
  7. Dont drive rash. Have all your car documents ready. Get your car checked thoroughly before the drive.
  8. Have at least 2/3 other members numbers, in case of help needed.
  9. Kindly do not try to imitate what other drivers are doing on the road. If a car is faster than yours kindly make way for them.
  10. Any incidents (God forbid), if at all, happen will be the sole responsibility of the memebers involved. Organizers, TBHP shall take no responsibility for such incidents.
For More information on Yelagiri please check these sites:

Have a Safe and Enjoyable Meet / Drive!

Noted.But still you would miss the introductions round which will take place in front of the BMW showroom.By the way why do you want to miss the pole position pics.Its hardly 2 kms from ec and you can use the service road or take a u turn from the hosa road junction
