Hyderabad to Kodaikanal roads

Recommended Posts

Planning to start from Hyderabad to Kodaikanal December 26 on my 1972 bullet

Is this the time to go to Kodaikanal and if so how am I supposed to go ???

Going all alone

Best routes with scenics and also the safe one

Suggestions and feedback appreciated

TIA

Best route is NH 44. Which goes via Bangalore. You need to take diversion near Kodai road. Or you can go via Palani..

This track has got good roads all the way.. You don't have to carry any second thought about the road conditions as far as you are riding this route.

Hyderabad - Kurnool - Anantapur - Bengaluru - Dharmapuri - Dindigul - Kodaikanal. 

 

Vattakanal, Guna Caves, Pine forest, Silent Valley, Pillar rocks, Perumal peak are few must visit places.

 

Stay in Vattakanal above the clouds will be an experience to do.

Usually Kodaikanal is expensive and crowded in the last week of December.

Since you are riding alone, you can find plenty of home stay options in Kodai. 

Avoid commercial places and stay in off beat locations(home stays).

You can split into two days.

Hyderabad - Bangalore
Bangalore - Kodiakanal

I would suggest you to add Munnar to your list. 

I liked Munnar very much over Kodaikanal and Ooty.

 

For Solo driving Munnar has lot of things to offer.

December and Munnar is a scary combination I would say.. :D Heavy flow of crowd.. But still.. there are amazing homestays in some exotic locations in Munnar which are away from the commercial crowd. Spending time at these places would be perfect for a relaxation trip :)

Instead of Kodaikanal, Kerala trip like waynad, Alaphuja, munnar would be a good combination in December?

Kodai is more about a relaxation trip.. Vattakanal is a place to be especially during the months of September to November. A full trip of Kerala would be a ride all day through the crowd.. and Allepy is super hot in December :( Munnar and Wayanad are definitely beautiful. If your trip is for about a week.. God with Kodaikanal.. 4 days for the ride and 3 days to explore the place leisurely.

Any good stay options in Vattakanal,
based on your experience.

 

When you are sending these messages,

I really stopped working and looking at gmaps as if like I'm travelling next week.

It is the same situation at most of the commercial destinations.

But I think we can always search around for off beat locations. 

 

Let the Luther update us no. of days.
May be we will have more clarity on what we can suggest.

There are still a lot more amazing stay options as such in Vattakanal. Our stay was decent and not luxurious but, had an amazing view
