Hi friendly folks,

I am planning on a trip to Kodai(3 nights) and Munnar(2 nights). This is my planned itinerary(most cost effective, given the recession) :

Day 1 : Hyderabad-Chennai by overnight train
Day 2 : Chennai-Kodai Road by overnight train
Day 3 : Bus from Kodai Road to Kodai
Nights 3-5 : Stay at Kodai
Day 6 : Kodai-Munnar by day bus
Nights 6-7 : Stay at Munnar
Day 8 : Munnar-Coimbatore by Bus
Day 9 : Coimbatore-Chennai Overnight train
Day 10 : Chennai - Hyderabad Overnight train

Q1 : Hyderabad - Kodai with break at Chennai is most painful as we lose 1/2 a day there. Any alternatives ? Is there a day train alternative to Madurai/Coimbatore and then on to Kodaikanal from there ?
Q2 : Munnar - Chennai : Is Munnar-Coimbatore-Chennai the shortest/best route here ?
Q3 : Could there be a better itinerary if I visited Munnar first and then Kodai on the way back ?
Q4 : Are TATKAL tickets available on Pandian Express(Chennai-Kodai Road) and on Coimbatore-Chennai sector on trains ?

Thanks for all the help. I am looking for quick answers please, as I am looking to travel first week of Dec.

Sundar
