Hill Rider Pollachi to Valparai via Sholayar.

Valparai is a lovely place in Coimbatore district and it is not exploited as a tourist place. Because of this, it also didnt get affected by the pollution. One of the best routes with 40 Hairpin Bends.

BTW, Valparai old BS is owned by Cheran. One of the rare cases.. Only few places has depot+BS in same location in TN.

Loam’s view is the one which will give a clear view of Azhiyar dam. Such a beautiful view point..

After Attakatti, there is a diversion to sholayar. Earlier buses to Sholayar used to run as Pollachi-Attakatti-Valparai-Sholayar. Now some buses as diverted as Pollachi-Attakatti-Sholayar-Valparai. I have used this route once while going to Sholayar in my bike.

Older route for buses was Pollachi-Valparai-Sholayar. Now we have Pollachi-Sholayar-Valparai and viceversa.. Stopped for sometime and it is back with a rebuilt bus.. People raised this as a concern. Close to 30 minutes will be saved for reaching Sholayar if we go directly without touching Valparai. Here is the pic of once such guy!

TNSTC-Coimbatore’s Coimbatore-Devakottai via Madurai
