Kodanad-Malayattoor bridge is open now and you can take this route instead of Vallom-Kalady: https://goo.gl/maps/KhMkw. No need to get stuck in the traffic at Kalady, roads are good also

Also this section of the Plantation road is regularly used by the Dumper trucks (For transporting stone for the quarry's around) is at very bad condition with big/deep potholes, be careful at this section if driving a low GC hatchback/sedan: https://goo.gl/maps/B2wIE

Thanks mate for the heads up. Suggestion most welcome.
Will take that route and exercise caution on the bad sector.
Invaluable input.
Much appreciated .

Update:

Sorry folks, Athirapally Falls drive cancelled .

Pulled the plug, given Rainforest Retreat's unprofessional F&B arrangements and website misinformation regarding picnic hamper lunch at the base of the falls.

Consequently, Saturday, chill @ WW with the activities as originally envisaged.

Cheers

Wicked idea - since the falls are only 1.5 hrs from where we will be, why not an evening run to see the majestic water? But anyway this can be brainstormed on Saturday based on how we rise for the day and how much we can do at the resort! So I am not loosing my heart yet

Live update -
With almost no traffic on the highway and not the long queues to beat at toll, we have made it ahead of time by 10 mins at Salem Park Plaza for breakfast!

Would love to give thanks but the button is missing (dunno why since yesterday). Absolutely waiting for the pics and the two above are an absolute teaser. Would have joined if it was in Bombay . Have a great time and an even better drive.
How did the orange cheetah behave. XUV pics also awaited.

Both the cheetahs look royal at the water front where wild animals are usually seen. The elephant in the next pic is only an indication of the many cool pics to come. Do post Soon.

Talk about photoshoot with pachyderms - we went a step ahead - elephant holding tiger cubs for a playful moment!
