Nice shots. Some worth going for a large prints.
Nope, my assistant driver took the camera to the church earlier and left my 55-200 back to lighten her handbag

I think this is the 3rd travelogue in a row I am going through ! I am still wondering if there is anything like a treasure-hunt in Munnar ? May be there are lot of treasures left by the britishers that are accessible through the 'crush-down' of many areas by our achumama !

Anyway, its a pleasure to read about the same place in a different style ! Pictures are talking louder, no doubt. We are used to reading the ownership review of the same make car by many over here, so members taking the same route and destination adds to the beauty and richness of this forum.

One thing I want to clarify, how did you take the Aluva route to cochin ? Dont you come to Cochin via Kottayam, or through Muvattupuzha from Munnar ? Hope we wont be disappointed waiting for the rest of the story !

Should be around 450-460KMs if taken through the krishnagiri, dharmapuri, salem, darapuram, udumalaipet route.

If you take through chamrajpet, satyamangalam, may be little more shorter.

Right guys?

loads of information available in route query section. IIRC, the distance would be around 480 km, and travel time around 10 hours (obviously it will depend on what time you're starting and the number of breaks you are taking in between).

What a lovely travelogue, and some gorgeous pictures. That sight after Mattupetty is spectacular. Thanks a lot for sharing Ajit, makes one want to head to Munnar asap.

I think munnar-adimali-kothamagalam-perumbavoor-aluva-cochin

Nobody goes through Muvattupuzha anymore.
