“Amrithi... a road less travelled”
Reviewed 8 May 2009

After reaching vellore we took a detour of approx 25 Kms to Amirthi (Forest reserve), The road from Vellore to Amirthi is ok... but with a little bad patches in between. There is nothing much in Amirthi, except if you want to take a road less traveled and experience a difference. Well You will come across a stream across the road to reach Amirthi.. Big cars, SUV?s & MUV?s will not have any problem. (Small cars M800 / Alto / Zen .. need a little bit of maneuvering but can be crossed) ...........
