Hi

Thanks for the PM.

Deepak is spot on. You will need to make a choice between places, keeping in mind their direction / distance and within the time available.

I think you will need to understand the directional coordinates of these locations which will give you a lot of clarity.

Directions and distances

(1) Pollachi to Munnar is about 100 Kms towards the South East of Pollachi

(2) Munnar to Kodai is about 175 Kms towards the South East of Pollachi

(3) Pollachi to Valparai is about 70 Kms towards the South West of Pollachi

(4) Pollachi to Topslip is about 60 Kms towards the South of Pollachi

(5) Pollachi to Waynad is about 270 Kms towards the Northwest

Detailed driving routes

(1) Pollachi - Udumalpet - Maraiyur – Munnar 100Kms

(2) Munnar-Poopara -Bodinaikanur -Theni -Periyakulam -Kodaikanal. 175 Kms

(3) Pollachi – Aliyar, Attakatti, Valparai 65 Kms

(4) Pollachi – Anaimalai, Sethumadai – Topslip 40 Kms

(5) Pollachi – Chitur - Palghat – Shornur- Manjeri – Nilambur – Waynad 270 Kms

or

(6) Pollachi – Coimbatore – Mettupalayam – CoonoorOoty – Gudalur – Waynad 280 Kms

In other words, with Pollachi as a center point, the different routes form a spoke in completely different directions to almost a star. Now the choice for you is choose destinations depending on direction/distance and time and avoid backtracking.

Your best choice would possibly be

Arrive into Pollachi, proceed towards Topslip (number 4) or Valparai (number 3).

Spend a day and a night

Leave Topslip or Valparai and proceed to Munnar (number 1 above)

Spend 2 days and 2 nights

Leave Munnar and drive out to Kodai (number 2)

Spend 2 days and 2 nights

Hope this helps

Regards

Rajan

since you are planning to get to Trichy, the Kodai, Dindugal, Trichy route would be around 175 KMS and will have no back tracking

Wow, that's some info!! Thanks for sharing.

Agree on Wayanad. You either do ONLY Wayanad or simply do the others and skip Wayanad.
