Condition of Palani-Kodaikanal Road

Dear friends,

I am planning to travel from Palghat to Palani and from there to Kodaikanal by Scorpio in mid of August 2011. How is the road condition in the stretch Palani to Kodaikanal. Is it risky? How wide is the road?Will there be landslide during Monsoon?

Hi raovelloor,

Welcome to Trip Advisor.

I did this trip in May and the roads were very motorable and okay. Only in the start of the hills for about a km, there were some works. Otherwise, the road was pretty decent and also adequately wide. Suggest you look in the previous threads also, as this has been discussed quite a few times.

Regards

Hi venkat_csc88,

Welcome to Trip Advisor.

The Batlagundu - Kodai road is a fairly decent one, maybe a good road. But, be prepared for some heavy rains and mist. The visibility in most sight seeing spots would be poor and the roads inside Kodaikanal also a very average.Kodaikanal has not reported much of landslides but it is better to be careful.

Regards

Prasanna
