Let me guess, why are you going to Kozhikode....

1, to get a boat from Beypore to Lakshadweep Islands.

2, for the backwaters just north of Kozhikode.

3, to go to Wayanad.

As permits for Lakshadweep are not being issued at the moment, and getting info on the backwaters is extremely difficult, I have to conclude that you're going to Wayanad.

If so, get a bus from Kodai to Kodaikanal Rd station, then a train from there to Mysore, then a bus to Wayanad.

Thanks "Coolkerala" and Steven. Actually, we're heading to Kannur to wander south for a month or so taking in some temple festivals, elephant pageants, cycling through the rice paddies and backwaters villages, and spacing-out with good books on the beach. We'll likely take a "country boat" or two, maybe paddle a canoe but skip the houseboat this time. At some point we'll go to Munnar for a while. Regarding Kodai to Kozhikode, we'd prefer to not ride buses for more than 3 hours at a time. How about Kodai to Palani by bus (2 hrs). Palani to Palakkad by bus or taxi. Palakkad to Kozhikode on the Mangalore Express (16107). Other ideas? How much do you figure for a taxi from Palani to Palakkad?

You could take a train from Kodai Road to Coimbatore (About 5 hours) or to Erode (About 3.5 hours) and catch one of the Chennai-Mangalore trains from either of these places to get off at Kozhikode or Kannur.

Thanks cynic, I'm thinking that taking a train from Kodai Road is a great idea and maybe going to Mysore to hang for a while then train from Mysore to Kannur.
