The route is NH220 via Kumili/Thekkady, Vandiperiyar, Peermede, Kuttikanam, Mundakayam & Kanjirapalli. At Kanjirapalli, turn off NH220 and go via Manimala to Pathanamthitta.

You can also turn off at Mundakayam. Make local enquiries which road is in better condition. The road via Manimala sometimes cracks up during rains.

Distances as follows:
Cumbum-Kumili 22 kms-Kuttikanam 38-Mundakayam 23-Kanjirapalli 15-Manimala 12-Pathanamthitta 30

It is ghat roads all the way from 10-15 kms before Kumili till Mundakayam.

I travelled on Kanjirapalli-Mundakayam-Kumily-Cumbum-Theni stretch in April this year. The ghat section just before Kumily on Tamil Nadu side and immediately after in Kerala side were very badly damaged. Tamil Nadu State Transport Corporation buses were parked on both the sides of the highway, blocking most of the carriage way and creating a traffic jam at Kumily. Drive slowly and carefully on this stretch. Afterwards, roads were fine in both the states.
