Since you asked, let me save you from searching. Here (Quick mini-meet(s) in Kochi (Cochin)) you go.

@ thoma: Ponmudi is indeed a really beautiful place, it used to be left untouched till some time back (to the extend that there was not even an eatery up there). A few years back, when I had visited Ponmodu, was bestowed with wonderful climate though the roads (some sections) where nonexistent back then..

The image you have put up confirms that things have changed a lot. Would love to go for a drive especially with the rain, I guess there should be a lot of greenery?

Guys who have gone up there recently, does the CCD operate always there? If we did plan for a meet, may be we can give them advance notice to have some food ready for us?

I'm not based at TVM, but an infrequent visitor.

I know few TVM guys outside the forum, who have been to Ponmudi umpteen times from their childhood, now scoff at the idea of doing a trip uphill. Maybe it is a typical case of 'familiarity breeds contempt'. Whenever I talk to those guys about Ponmudi, they just don't reply with an yes or a no and the trip never happens And maybe also that they consider it as a picnic spot for the family. And also that they do not get to drive when I'm driving! Or is it the old bad roads in their mind?

But, those who have not gone there after the roads are perfected, I would recommend a definite go - just for the winding or rather unwinding drive.

With the kind of rain these days, I would be stunned to see if the roads are still good.

Are you planning to go? Long time since we had a meet. I see lot of TBHP cars at Techno. We should atleast have a Tech-TBHP meet. A drive to CCD-Thonakkal or lunch at Park?

The roads were perfect when I last visited during the summer. But sure about the waiting surprise. The rains may have done their job. Here are some snaps of the roads from my last visit.

Sorry for the OT but does any of you guys know of a matte black contessa that seems to be doing rounds in Tvm.. I could be wrong but may it even sports a Team-bhp sticker. Just checking since I noticed it again recently..

I am guessing that you are talking about TBHPian Mukundmenon's car
Quick meets in TVM-1.jpg

The car can be seen in the following thread

http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/team-b...ilgiris-2.html (Contessa Owners Meet held at Nilgiris)

I could be wrong

Best Regards & Drive Safe

It was nice stopping by for a coffee with Jkdas, who showed me some breathtaking images of places close to TVM. I couldn't get close to his ponmudi images (i blame the bad weather ). The best i could manage when i went there yesterday are attached below. I could get about 1 hour of moderate sunshine before The downpour. But, the drive was fantastic. Btw, we were greeted by leeches at every stop.

Nice meeting you. Sad about the rain and guess the leeches are part of it
Loved the pix too!.

Went up in a Xylo? How was the ride?
