oh thts a great news buddy.i have some advices for u.
1.plan for at least 2 days so that u can reach everywhere.
2.if u going alone take all the reference of near by tata show rooms and service centers in your route.
3.don't get excited by the scenes on the way,u may miss the best ahead.
4. book a hotel in advance if u hav xtra cash, or search for cheaper reaching there. minimum single room with common bathroom will cost 800/-luckily i got one bath attached one for 1200 ,in munnar city.there re hotels everywhere its up to your budget. the check in - check out time is 12 pm. so the early u book the more u can use it.
5.i got a printed LIST of places from the hotel from where i had lunch. -i think any shop will give u that list( all of them keep it.ask any1 )by that ,its easy to visit places according to that list.
6. after reaching munnar the places are divided according to the route
a. Rajamala route
b. Mattuppety route
c. kochi route
d. thekkady route
e. Coimbatore route
1st three are the main.kochi route will be the one u will be going. in each route there are list of places where is good spots.
7 i directly went to RAJAMALA-14 kms from munnar and saw iravikulam National park. SUPERB don't miss it. reach there by 1pm atleast so that by the time u come back from those hills it will be evening.so see it in day lights
8.second day i took mattuppety route in morning 9
on the way there are(kms approx fom munnar city)
rose garden -2km
photo spot -3km
elephant ride camp(350/head for 10 min) -10km
dam -15 km
echo point-river side
elephant site point
another dam (don't remember name)there is Boat rides
then lastly Top Station -33 kms from munnar- have to walk atleast half km down hill to see suicide point.its a bit tiring
it was evening 5pm when i started back and reached munnar at 6pm then 9.30 in cochin (my GPS was on in both up and down)
9. Better start early while coming back at least by 4.30 pm from munnar. because i was riding in dark from 6.30pm onwards till the end.and the route is very lonely and u will see very few human being in the road sides.
keep an eye on the road there are places where u will see ROCK on the road at once (2-3 places).
10.There are 2 petrol pumps in munnar city.
on the way its in very starting so get it topped up 100 KM before.( for a safer side)
Have a safe journey and enjoy your trip
will be waiting to see your pics dude...
hope u will get a rough idea fro this
