Bangalore to Munnar roadtrip on 20th Oct

Hi All

I am planning for a road trip from Bangalore to Munnar on 20th Oct. We will be driving our CIAZ for the trip

I will be the lone driver for the trip as I have my wife, two kids and my mom.

Would request if i can get an idea about the road conditions now as its be raining continuosly

NOTE: I haven't driven on Ghat Roads till now. So planning to start by 4am from Bangalore so that I can drive slowly in the Ghat roads.

Please suggest for the routes and eating outlets on the way.

Thanks in Advance,

Sidhartha

It's about 475 kms from Bangalore to Munnar and you are the only driver. So i suggest you take a halt at Udumalpet and next day morning start your journey to Munnar.

On the ghat road don't get distracted and just focus on your driving.

Bangalore to Munnar is approximately 468 kms- and will take 10-11 hrs by road.

Bangalaore- Electronic city- Hosur- Salem- Perundurai- Dharapuram- Udumalpettai- Marayoor- Munnar.

Marayur- Munnar- most stretch is scenic. And Marayur sandal woods, Lakkom water falls and Eravikulam National Park ( Rajamala) falls on last stretch of 42 kms.

Dear Sir,

You can reach to Udumalpet and halt there.

Take a rest and start your trip after the breakfast, start as early as possible. Do not travel in the night through Chinnar - Marayoor area coz wild animals will be hunting there for their prey. I personally experienced it.

Route maps:

Bangalaore-

Electronic city-

Hosur-

Salem-

Perundurai-

Dharapuram-

Udumalpettai-

Marayoor-

Eravikulam National Park-

Munnar.

Do not miss some Marshal arts shows when you are in Munnar. Wish you a safe Journey Any assistance : 07902789087
