if you are in munnar and going to tamilnadu, take this way as it offers good drive and good view. the road is good and you can enjoy the drive and the nature. you may be lucky to see wild animals on the way.

Better stay at Kanthalloor, known for organic farming. Many people cultivate apple, grapes, strawberry etc here. The journey from Kanthallor to Chinnar will be a soothing experience for you. Please inbox if you need more info
