I had 2 days of free time and did not want to waste it sitting idle or watch “Avathar”. So me and Arun decided to just drive down to Coimbatore to a relatives place. There are multiple ways to reach Coimbatore from Bangalore. The well known route is the Hosur road. We decided to take alternate route via Kanakpura Road.
Bangalore – Kanakpura – Malavalli – Kollegal – Sathyamangalam – Coimbatore
Apart from a 30km bad stretch the road was quite good and were able to reach the destination in 7 hours. On our return journey we wanted to take the Ooty – Mysore Route which is much longer but very scenic
Coimbatore – Ooty – Mysore – Bangalore
Here are few photos taken during the road trip.
