To optimize the travel to Thekkady , Kumarakom and Munnar the following may help.

Day1. Leave early morning from Bangalore (4:00am) Hosur-Salem-Karur-Dindigul-Vattalagundu-Theni-Kambam-Thekkady (Kumily). You should be reaching Kumily by 3 or 4:00 pm. The right turn to Vattalgundu from Didigul is not properly marked now. May have to keep asking for Kodai route as soon as you are near Dindigul. Kodaikanal route is same as Vattalgundu route from there.
Stay at Kumily or nearby place.

Day2. Visit Thekkady next day morning. Have boat ride.
Afternoon, drive to Kottayam through KK road (Kottayam - Kumily road). Another option is to stay at Kuttikkanam.

Day3. Next day morning, reach Kumarakom - take a houseboat. Spend a day.

Day4. If you are interested, go to Cochin - Or drive through Kottayam-Muvattupuzha-Kothamangalam-Adimaly to Munnar. It takes 5 to 7 Hrs for a leasure drive. Stay at Munnar.

Day5. Visit Mattuppetti Dam, Kundala dam and top Station - Pack your lunch and enjoy it on the way.

Day 6. Visit Rajamala and other nearby places

Day 7: Start early morning though Marayoor-Udumalpettai-Bhavani-Mettur-Bangalore. This road is narrow for first 3 Hrs drive. Another option to drive through smooth road is - Devikulam-Pooppara-Bodinaykannur-Theni-Dindigul-Karur-Salem-Hosur-Bangalore.
