So be it ! Lets have a drive !

Neyyar Dam (31kms) or Ponmudi (45kms) !

Which one guys?


Whatever be it,we will start from Kowdiar. We will park just after CCD/Petrol Bunk where we have parking space on LHS.

Would 9:00am be ok so that we can return to TVM by late noon? We will have lunch en-route ( nutty kutty nair should help here )

Those who cant join for the meet can either meet us prior to the drive or can meet us after we return from the drive.

If its neyyar, I'll bring my car. Ponmudi is almost UV territory, so my wheels will have to stay home

Read a news, two days back that Ponmudi road is closed for repairs and it will be open for traffic after a month only.

Both places sound great.. But I'ld prefer ponmudi... It'll be more scenic and more fun to drive too...
@jk dude think ponmudi will be like 55+ km from the city... not that i care... the more the merrier for me

Jk, Ponmudi is around 65 kms from Trivandrum. But if the road is closed for repairs as @sps pointed out, then Neyyar Dam would be a good option. Will have to check whether they are open on Republic Day.
@crazybiker46 - Some alternate suggestions
1) Palaruvi (Thenmala route)
2) Bonacord/Vazhuvanthol waterfalls (via Vithura) - 60 odd kms
3) Adimalathura Beach - around 25 kms from Trivandrum
4) Vattakkottai - kanyakumari route

Option 2 sounds intresting.... the kanyakumari route will be absolutly clogged... it'll be an absolute pain to drive through there during those hours...

Where is our distinguished organiser eh???? Saaar any comments???
