Hi

Hire a taxi as you would be able to stop at places on the way for pics. You dont have to go up to Udumalpet to go to Valparai, you need to take a left from Kurichi Kottai junction, that would save you about 20 km.

Cheers

Benny

Hi Mugamath,

Welcome to Trip Advisor.

If your are not very particular on beginning your travel from Madurai/Theni, I would suggest you to reach Coimbatore by the overnight train. From Coimbatore, you may hire a cab to first visit Top Slip(80 kms) and Valparai(80 kms), then proceed to Munnar via Dhali,Chinnar, Marayur etc(160 kms). From Munnar, you may proceed to Athirampally Water Falls via Adimaly, Kothamangalam, Perumbavoor and Chalakudi (155 kms). From you may decide on your return from the nearest rail head to Chennai. The same trip might be done in the reverse direction also, starting from Athirampally Falls and board the train at Coimbatore. This trip could be best done in a cab, as public transport would be a little inconvenient as frequencies are poor.

Feel free to revert for any clarifications.

Regards

Prasanna

Munnar to Athirappally could be reached in Perumbavur-Angamali-Chalakudy route. Athirappally is around 33 km from Chalakudy. Apart from waterfalls there is one good water theme park too. Couple of good resorts around. If you are looking for a more economical stay, you can come back to Chalakudi. But it is always wiser to reserve your accommodation in advance and go. Total distance is 176 km. Further, if you are moving to Valparai via Palakkad - Pollachi route. Valparai is further 46 km from Pollachi. Total km from Athirappally to Valparai is around 180 km. I agree with the opinions that you higher a cab reaching Munnar for local sight seeing and further travel.

Hi

From Chalakudy (Town nearest to Athirappally), you can take a direct bus (Kerala Transport) directly to Kalpetta or Sulthan Bathery (Towns In Wayanad). It is a 7 h journey. Wayanad sightseeing would be almost 3 complete days. In between, if you are coming by cab, Calicut is a good option. There are couple of beaches and historical places.

For any clarification, pl feel free to revert.
