As others have mentioned, avoid night driving on this route beyond Theni.

Consider breaking journey at Dindigul, since Madurai and Theni are even further away.
This way, you can reach in about 6-7 hours, get a good night's rest and start fresh next day morning.

*This routing is fine since you're headed to Club Mahindra on the Chinnakanal side.

On this route, road till around last 20km to Munnar are all good. Actually I traveled till Club Mahindra, and Google has shown some sharp right at around 14Km before club mahindra. That road is not good as mostly steep single lane with bad stretches - Best avoided. Instead travel till Poopara and then to club mahindra. This is ~10Km long but wide road however with few manageable bad stretches.

Also, Road connecting from power house(CM) to Munnar is still not open and need to take some internal long route. Google is not very accurate here and road quality of some of the stretches are really bad. Better to take local guide if traveling here.

Hello friends,
I'm travelling to Munnar for a 4 day trip next weekend and wanted to get an idea on the route I should be taking. There are quite a lot of helpful posts before this, but still not getting a good idea of the route to be taken. I am staying at Tea Village, Chitirapuram. Google currently shows two routes -
1) Salem-Tiruppur-Udumalpet-Marayoor (shorter)
2) Salem-Dindigul-Theni (longer but almost the same time)

Thanks in advance
Satish

Hi All,

I am planning for munnar in may end,Is it a good time or its just a no go season.I am planning to drive in my 4*4 Pajero and wanted to know if anyone tried driving to Kolukkumalai Tea Estate of late? How are the road conditions?Is It doable in pajero with the turning radius?.I have read couple of guys have done it in 4*4 duster with their small turning radius.I am planning to visit allepey during the drive for house boat experience.Is it open during last week of may?Will it be too hot and not worth the effort.Pls advise.

Thanks in advance!
