Default Rameshwaram to Kanyakumari


Could any one tell me the route that I should take when going from Rameshwaram to Kanyakumari & the road condition?

Rameswaram to Kanyakumari, the shortest route is via ramanathapuram, Kizhakari, Sikkal, Tuticorin, Tiruchendur and Koodankula, all along teh coast. But unforunately teh coast road is badly damaged.

Hence, there are 2 alternatives - one, from Ramanathapuram, take the Madurai road (NH49 ) till Aruppukottai, then go on NH45B to Tuticorin and thereon. Other route would be to go all the way to Madurai on NH49 itself, then take NH7 through Virudhunagar, Tirunelveli and Panagudi to Kanyakumari.

NH45B is in good condition. NH7 is being widened at several places.

Arrow Avoid the Costal Road


Would sugget the Ramanathapuram, Arupukottai, Tuticorin, Valliyur, Cape route. DO NOT take the costal route, its a wash out. If sections of the East Coast Road I travelled recently is any indication, it's best to avoid it, even if you have to detour.

Exactly 15 kms from Valliyur Junction, you'd get a dental college on the fork of a road, Left fork, aorund 26 kms will take you to Kanyakumari and the right Fork will take you to Nagarcoil.

If you want exact milages / details, go to this link/ read the travelogue section.
