Default Re: Safest Road to Kerala per current conflict between TN & KL on the Mullaperiyar is

Had come from Calicut through CLT- Thamarassery- Waynad- Mysore route. The ghat roads are a mess with huge pile up of vehicles. Took some 2 hours to clear it yesterday noon. Guess will be even worse at evenings / weekends. Due to bad condition of roads heavy vehicles are not able to navigate hair pin bends proper causing delay.

Just did Kochi - Bangalore via NH47/Walayar. Passed through Walayar at 4pm and no issues at all though few KeSRTC buses were forming a convoy towards CBE with police protection.

Thanks

I'm planning to go to Thekkady for the new year weekend. The road via Theni was open till today from the last few days and has again been shut down. Leaving Bangalore on 30th morning. My resort has asked me to travel to Thekkady via Udumalaipet-Munnar. Let's see how things pan out.

I am actually going to Club Mahindra Resort, Thekkady, from Bangalore, reaching Madurai the previous day.

If I have to go via Udumalpet/Munnar, I need a major re-work of my plans

I'm going to Sterling Resorts why don't you call up Club Mahindra and ask them what they recommend? They'd have a better idea. I just got a call from Sterlings Travel desk, and the guy asked me to deviate from Cumbum to Cumbum Mettu and then turn off towards Kumily.

I checked with the resort Manager last week - he mentioned about some disturbances at the border, and asked me to check with him just before starting.

How was your experience? Any tips and routes to follow?

Thanks in advance.

Issues from TN part is not reported these days as they are worried on any attack to Sabarimala pilgrims from TN. Situation may change once Sabarimala season is over.
