Manjur-Mulli Road

43 hairpin bends on the steep road from Manjur to Mulli

Located on the southern Indian state of Tamil Nadu, Manjur-Mulli Road is one of the steepest drives with hairpin corners of the country. The curvy road is a bit too bad but the scenery is worth the ride.

The road is 28,1 km (17.46 miles) long and links the villages of Manjur and Mulli. It’s paved but the journey is dangerous and challenging to drivers, with some narrow sections. The road is very twisty all the way between both cities. The road can be crowded on weekends and holidays. It’s extremely steep, hitting a 27,5% of gradient through some of the ramps.

The most challenging part of the drive is a brutal 9.8km long section, with 43 continuous hairpin bends. Over this distance the elevation gain is 630 meters. The average gradient is 6.42%.
