Return to Pollachi from Valparai. Go to Udumalipet and take the conventional Munnar route via Chinnar, Marayyoor. Distance should be approximately 160 kms.
Go forward from Valparai to what is one of the best forest roads in India. Via Malakkiparai (the highest-yielding - by quantity - tea estates in India), Sholayar, Peringalkuthu Dam, Vazahchal, Athirapalli Falls to Chalkudy), 110 kms. From Chalakudy, go on NH47 till Angamali and take the well-travelled Munnar road via Perumbavoor, Kothamangalam and Adimali. Should be around 250 kms. The Valparai-Chalakudy road is highly recommended, except that you don't travel after dark - has tuskers, giant cicadas and tall bamboos, besides the "God's Own Country" watterfalls.

My dad has driven around the coimbatore - valparai - athirapalli route in his scooter with his gang, and he has been discouraging me to take a drive in my Santro.
Can someone please help with more specific details of managing to get accommodation in one of those gov guest houses or the estates?
