Default Kochi to Thommankutu - Route and related details - help

Hi,

We are planning a visit to Thommankuthu Falls from Ernakulam(Kochi) this weekend, (one day program).

Had few questions:

1) Shortest and route with least stretch of bad road (I won't be surprised if there aren't any :-) )

2) Planning to start by 7 from here, which would be an ideal place for breakfast and lunch? (Veggies and Non-Veggies in the group)

3) What are the other places near Thommankuthu worth a visit? Our intention is to get back by 7.30pm to the starting point....

Thanks in advance.

@Hrishiz:
Thommankuth Water Falls at this time may have less Water flow(Obviously).

1)You can Reach Muvattupuzha via NH49 and after Muvattupuzha in Kothamangalam Road(some 4kms) take a right turn to connect to Pothanicad-Vannappuram-Thommankuth Route.This route is remote;Only saviour is may be saving few kms of distance compared to below route.When Last time I took this route,The roads are bad near Vannappuram.

Kochi-Muvattupuzha-Thodupuzha(Excellent roads) -Some 60-65kms.

From Thodupuzha take the route to thommankuthu(Udumbannur-Ezhumuttom) which is Easy and Average Nice Road too.
So,I will recommend via Thodupuzha route.

2)You can find good standard Hotels at Thodupuzha for Lunch.Veg - Hotel Vinayaka ,near sri krishna temple ,Thodupuzha,Hotel Gopuram .
Non-veg :I used to Visit TeeCee Restaurent(and bar ), opposite Jyoti Bazaar and Hotel Sicilia etc.

and for families - there are Hotels near private bus stand(average).

For Break fast ,You have many options there at City itself?

3) You can Consider "Ilaveezha poonchira" via Thodupuzha-Muttom(Erattupetta road) Route.You Will get Breathtaking View of Hills after Muttom. But ,Ilaveezhapoonchira is really hilly to climb on and You may research more on before visit.

But I love driving this Thodupuzha-Muttom Stretch.

Thattekkad Bird Sanctuary,Kodanad Elephant Kraal all can be linked with your Thommankutth tour ,but Covering all these places in one day seems tough.

Hi there,

Thanks a lot for that input. Quiet informative.

We are leaving the city before breakfast so that we can get away from the traffic asap!

We are told that thommankuthu itself has a good share of trekking so we ar advised not to include ilaveezhapunchira...

"Meenuliyarmudi (at vannapuram panchayathu), Keezharkuthu (Uumpannoor) and Irukallumud (Velliyammattom) are other famous small tourist centres near Thommankuthu"

I got the above from the net. Any idea how good these places are?
