from someones blog

Quote:
For people who plan to follow our trail: Leave early in the morning. It takes around 2 hours to reach Pulicat from Chennai. Following the NH5 up from Koyambedu is an easier (and smoother) way than going via Ennore. The road conditions are terrible, to say the least - if it were not for the awesome suspension of the car, we'd have returned with a bruised back. So either travel by motorcycle, or take an SUV ;D. Recommended for the adventure seeking (or/and the absolutely vela). Finally, if you want to feel like a foreigner in India, just land there in a car do carry a couple of Swadesh songs for true effect.
Vasant's Weblog: The Pirates of Pulicat

can anyone confirm road conditions

Have been to Pulicat a few times on some ornithological expiditions. Till Sri-harikota did not take much time. But i dont know how one might get to the island. ex670c's trip is to the eastern part of the lake. Taking NH5 will take you into the northern part of the lake (in andhra). I will need to get back to town by 4ish....
