Guys one quick warning. When you search the net, there's one option of going to Andhakaranazhi through Kumbalangi model tourism village. I tried that route today being coaxed in by "model tourism village" and all.
NOT RECOMMENDED AT ALL. I wanted to go to Marari beach but had to drop it half way through. The roads are shattered. Full of pot holes. The traffic is terrible to say the least and then to add insult to injury, the road doesn't connect because of an incomplete bridge at the end of it. So i had to do a detour to hit the coastal road losing precious time and at the end of the day, reached nowhere by sunset and so returned back home with a kit of Prawns.

So the best way to go is via kannamali

By the way, that brings me to the point of prawns which you can get at good bargains enroute when you are crossing those prawn cultivation fields.

Thanks a lot for the warning, mate. You saved us a lot of time!!


I suggest we make a list of BHPians on for 5th may as well. And we'll go with the date that suits the majority.

BHPians for 5th :

1. Figo_mba
2. Nkg77
3. Sunney sir (?)

Sorry, I cannot on 1st, as said.
Well, you 4 can make it a Meet. Why not? Let the friendship grow !
And you 4 can be the 'Managing Committee' of 'TeamBHP Andhakaranazhi Drive-2012' and make plans for the trip on 5th or some other date...

I am joining 90% on 5th, if you allow to take shots of scenic places...

Sunney sir, please do join us on the 5th. And we all like good photos, and to see an expert at work is something very cool.

( I don't know a thing about photography - I'm one of those lazy fellows who leaves all the settings in auto and lets the camera do all the work!! )

Yes, we do need to get the plans for the drive finalised, Skyline GT-R had posted a couple of route maps to Arthungal. I think the coastal route might be more scenic right? (have not gone through this road, merely guessing) Well, guys, what do you say??

Rajoy.
