Default Re: Chennai- Munnar- Guruvayoor- Route + Planning Advice

@Crazydriver : Somehow I missed this query till now. Your revised schedule is definitely doable.
GVR - Nelliyampathy : It is better to start a little early from Guruvayur and reach Nelliyamapthy in the afternoon, so that you can visit either Kesavanpara or Seetharkundu that day itself. The left out spot can be visited the next day (Tuesday) morning.

Nelliyampathy-Chennai : Route suggested by ampere is better. Nenmara-Kollengode-Meenakshipuram-Pollachi maybe shorter than reaching CBE, and you also can avoid the road widening work on the Avinashi stretch

@crazy driver: what a coincidence. i too will probably be doing most of the same stretch on friday night or saturday. i am tending towards saturday, to avoid night driving. i too am going to munnar but that's only on monday (7th).

CBE Bypass Option
Thanks. But which of these will be best for NIGHT driving?

Thanks.

Why i am doing night drive is-

1. We have been working night shift whole week, and hence accustomed to sitting awake at night, and sleeping during day.
2. Saving saturday for munnar. If i have to drive on saturday, we'll need to go straight to guruvayoor.

Would have loved this way, but I got to attend a marriage in Guruvayoor on Monday morning. This marriage is the main reason for the trip, and hence no compromises can be made there. Should get over by 12 or so!

Happy Journey.

Did you decide on Saturday, or Friday night?

Stick to the Nemmara-Pollachi-Coimbatore-L&T Bypass-NH47-Salem route,its simpler in the night

Thanks, you too have a great trip!

As it turns out, the rest of the family didn't get train tickets so they're taking a bus. So I'm thinking, go home and get some 4 or 5 hours of sleep and then start out in the night itself. You may see me on the road - black Figo 7473.

What time are you planning to start, and what vehicle?
