Ok, we know we are a coastal city! But Chennai does have a bunch of hill stations that you can access under 11 hours. There are some that are within the 5-6 hours of driving distances, while some that include an overnight journey. All in all, these hill stations serve not just as a mere getaway, but also an opportunity for hiking and other activities to indulge in with your squad or bae. Skip Pondicherry this weekend, and head to these hill stations for some quality time with nature.
Disclaimer: Some places might require an E-pass, so check with the local authorities of the place beforehand. Given the current pandemic, not all tourists spots will be accessible in that place, so plan your trip accordingly. Of course, travel with all safety measures intact.
