did you take Ottupura->Erumappetty->Pannithadam route? Or Wadakkanchery town/gate route?
Will you be able to describe the junctions and turns after Alathur upto Guruvayur?

Thanks and guessed it so. God knows when the road widening and construction work will complete on this stretch and be able to drive safe.

I took the alathur-- pazhayannur-- chellakara-- wadankancherry -- guruvayur route. This route is pretty neat with no potholes. However road widening was going on near the Coimbatore bypass but this was not much.

Check Google maps for this route and download the maps for travelling and use offline mode


Note : take the wadankancherry ( with w) route. There is also a vadankancherry (with V) nearby. Do not get confused.
Hope this helps

Hello friends!

Every year i take my family on a long trip away from bangalore during deepaavaLi/diwali. We celebrate the festival by spending some great family time rather than bursting crackers. This october we are headed for Alleppey!!!

I will be driving my Ford Fusion

I have booked accommodation at shanthiteeram heritage lake resort at Alleppey. I saw on google maps that I could take the bangalore-Krishnagiri-Salem-Alleppey route or the Bangalore-Nanjanagud-guruvayoor-Alleppey route. I prefer a serene and calm drive even if it is longer.

Requesting all BHP friends to help me with some information on...

1. How is the Bangalore-Nanjanagud-guruvayoor-Alleppey road condition now?

2. What are the places that I can visit on the way, during my stay in Alleppey and on the way back?

3. What are the food / refreshment stops that I can make on the way?

4. What will be the weather like in Alleppey in October end- November Ist week?

5. Your suggestions on whether I should plan guruvayoor on the way back or on the way to Alleppey?

6. Any advices/ Suggestions while in guruvayoor and Alleppey?

I will look forward eagerly for your responses. Please help.

Would be better to post in the 'All Roads to Kerala' thread, that has better viewership and is more suited for this question. Cannot answer all your questions, but few comments.

Not sure how and why google routed through Guruvayoor, even with the Nanjangud Route, you dont need to touch Guruvayoor. Would recommend sticking to the Salem route. Even this route passes through Thrissur, which is 20km from Guruvayoor. So if you want to go to Guruvayoor you can do so with this route also.

Whether to stop at Guruvayoor while going or coming depends on the exact dates of the journey and your itinerary. Ideally if one of these is a weekday, that would be better.

Food options on the way are plenty, again, the 'All routes to Kerala' thread has more details. Typically Kerala is warm and humid in October. Evenings should be pleasant though.

Thank you Rajeevraj for the reply. I will post it in the all roads to kerala right away.

Google actually did not exactly show the route passes through guruvayoor...i saw that it is close to the route to alleppey and added it as a stop.

Anyways...thanks again for the response.

Chees!!!
