Hello Members,

Planning a trip to Kerala (Munnar-Thekkady-Alleppy-Vagamon) and Tamilnadu (Ooty-Kodaikanal).

Looking for a budget trip and taking KSRTC buses/private buses.

I have figured out the following itinerary, any inputs to avoid backtracking/criss-crossing will be really appreciated:

Day 1 Fly to Kochi
Day-2 Kochi to Munnar
Day-3 Munnar
Day-4 Munnar-to-Thekkady
Day-5 Thekkady to Vagamon
Day-6 Vagamon
Day-7 Vagamon to to Alleppy
Day-8 Alleppy to Coimbatore (advisable??)
Day-9 Coimbatore to Ooty
Day-10 Ooty to Kodaikanal
Day-11 Kodaikanal
Day-12 Kodaikanal to Coimbatore

Is itinerary doable?
Is there any alternate way to cover all the places, e.g. from Munnar to Kodaikanal or Ooty?If yes, I can do it backwards like Alleppy-thekkady-munnar-kodaikanal..

Also if anyone has any first hand info on Vagamon, please share.

Please help.

Thanks a ton in advance.

Read http://www.indiamike.com/india/keral...ry-t250136/for Vagamon.

Why both Ooty and Kodaikanal? If you want to include both then depart from Madurai which is closer to Kodaikanal.

Hello AArosh,

Thanks a lot for reply..Yes, even I reached to the same conclusion and chose Kodaikanal.

Also, Have figured out that KSRTC bus goes from Ernakulum to Palani. Now need to figure out buses from Palani to Kodaikanal. Hotel persons say no buses after 1 PM. Older blogs say there are.

Thanks again

Check if there is a bus from Ernakulam to Madurai via Theni. Then check for a bus from Theni to Kodaikanal / Batlagundu / Dindigul. If all else fails ask your Kodaikanal hotel to arrange a pick up for you from any one of the destinations that I mentioned above.

Thanks a lot Aarosh,

Pick up from hotel is around 1800-2000.

So quite out of budget.

Will look for other places you suggested

Thanks again
