Yes, Munnar route via Udumalaipet is in better shape, and with good [FONT=Courier New][SIZE=2]scenery.[/SIZE][/FONT]Last week one of my friend has taken that route.
If you want a short route try Mysore-Waynad-Mysore or Mysore-Coorg-Mysore.

My friend has taken Coimbatore - Pollachi - Udumalpet - Chinnar - Munnar route. It's around 150 km from Coimbatore. Road seems to be ok.

One more route i happened to see in the following thread is
Coimbatore - pollachi - valparai - left - munnar.
But I am not sure about this route.

The question is how to get to Coimbatore without breaking the car or the occupants. The road is really really bad except for some stretches like the toll roads.

I went to Coorg about 2 weeks back, and all the way from Periyapatna onwards there are no proper roads. Most of the drive was at 2nd gear, and even after Kushal nagar towards Madikere the roads are in a bad state.

There is no direct road from Valparai to Munnar. You can either return to the plains to Pollachi and go via Udumalaipet to Munnar or kepe going from Valparai to Chalakudy (NH47) via Malakkiparai (highest tea estates in India), Sholayar, Peringalkuthu, Vazhachal, Athirapalli Falls. Once you reach Chalakudy, go on NH47 south till Angamali, turn off to Perumbavoor and take teh Munnar road (coming from Kochi) via Kothamangalam and Adimali. The road from Valparai to Chalakudy (110 kms) has some of the best jungles in India, giant bamboos and very very noisy cicadas.

It's really amazing how well you know the routes and places.
Looks like you're a frequent traveller.
