I'm still trying to figure out how to arrange this trip with a preggers wife. Was thinking about driving from Madurai to Periyar (4 hours?) and spending a couple of nights. Then continuing on to Cochin (another 4 hours?).

Normally I wouldn't be posing this question but am wondering what the road conditions might be like? Bumpy as hell? Windy? Terrible idea if pregnant?

Thanks all!

I took my wife out on a yacht when she was 9 months pregnant.

That didn't work, so I took her for a ride in a 1934 Morris car.

A good car and driver won't bounce you around. Your journey may be slow (all road journeys in India are slow unless there's a maniac behind the wheel) but it will be safe and comfortable.

I can recommend a car and driver (he's a personal friend, fully licensed, and he drove my elderly parents to Madurai, Trichy, etc. just before Christmas). Please send me a private message if you want his details.

I've done that route by bus and the road conditions were good. Shouldn't be a problem.
