I am planning for a south India road trip in late April- 2019.

 

I will be starting from Hyderabad and would like to cover madurai, rameswaram, kodaikanal, kanyakumari and anything else across the same route. 

 

 Need your expert guidance for this trip. I will be travelling with my wife and 7 yr old kid on Tata Nexon. 

 I need help in the best route to follow, hotels to stay etc..

 

Thanks.

Krishna

Hi @Krishnan, Firstly I would like to congratulate you for your plan to do this long drive with your family. 

 

How many days days are you planning to do this in? Depending on the number of days, you will have to chose the route

You can add Munnar to your plan.
It is a must visit place. 

 

While driving back you can either cover places around Kochi (kerala back waters)

or

You can cover places around Chennai (Ponid, Mahabaleshwar etc)

 

I would suggest you to take Kochi route. 

You can cover Munnar/Alapuzza

You can add Trichy/Srirangam and Tanjavur in the list with little deviation from NH 44

You should consider Pondicherry as it can be enroute and about an hour drive down south from Pony, consider Pichavaram Mangrove boat ride.

Mahabalipuram temples on the coast before you reach Kanyakumari and Danushkodi.

If you decide the no. of days and must visit place in your itinerary,  we can suggest you hotels/places.

The circuit shared by @Ranger looks perfect for a 10 day road trip. You should consider doing that..

Wish we had a bridge from Danushkodi to Srilanka. 

Don't miss Danushkodi in your drive.

This is some thing what I would like to plan if I go on a similar drive. Yes the same can be customised depending on individual taste and interest

Hello Krishnan,

 

I did a 7 days trip in 2016 to SOUTH INDIA . My main aim was not to rush and spend sufficient time in each place to cover almost every tourist destination . I was the SOLO DRIVER in the entire trip and I traveled with my Family (PARENTs,SPOUSE & my two Daughters)  My Itnery was as below.

 

1. HYDERABAD TO BANGALORE (NIGHT HALT IN BANGALORE)

2. BANGALORE TO MADURAI (NIGHT HALT IN MADURAI) 

3. MADURAI TO RAMESWARAM (NIGHT HALT IN  RAMESWARAM)

4. RAMESWARAM TO KANYAKUMARI ( 2 NIGHT HALT IN KANYAKUMARI)

5. KANYAKUMARI TO BANGALORE (1 NIGHT HALT IN BANGALORE)

6. BANGALORE TO HYDERABAD

 

Though I Traveled by my CAR to In MADURAI, RAMESWARAM and KANYAKUMARI  but  I had booked LOCAL TAXIs (TRAVERA)  in each place to visit all tourist places to save time and concentrate on sight seeing rather than struggling on city traffics.There are many many tourist places in these destinations to be covered and the sequence in which each tourist places to be covered is very important to save time .  So I preferred to hire local TAXIs in each of these destinations. In MADURAI , RAMESWARAM & KANYAKUMARI , I paid Rs 7500/- Total for complete sight seeing.

 

Thanks 

BORNDRIVER

      I did not travelled for three months and the traveller in side me is thirsty.
      Few plans to West Maharastra and Goa with friends did not materialised.
       
      I had also planned a trip to Chitrakote falls with family friends but they were afraid of travelling in Chattisgarh.
      It was late night of 27th July, 2018 Friday and I was desperate to go to some place.
      I asked my wife and son Shall we go to Chitrakote Waterfalls? They said yes.
       
      Rough route plan was with me. No bookings for night stay made. 
       
      Got up early on 28-07-2018 Saturday and started from Home by 5.30 AM and reached Warangal by 7.30 AM.
       
      I know the route up to Eturunagaram before Bhogatha and I know very well that once we cross Warangal,
      it is difficult to get any food. So we had Breakfast at Hotel Ashoka, Hanmakonda, once my favorite. Entered in to Mulugu road (from here entire roads are 2 lane) by 8.30 AM. 
       
      Our original thought was to come back in the same route from Chitrakote but it proved wrong.
      Initially we thought of seeing Bhogatha falls in return journey so as to reach Chitrakote early.
      By 10.30 we were at Bhogatha Falls cross road and its only 1 Km from there. We thought lets have a look without wasting much time.
       
      It proved to be good decision.
