Distance and driving time between Coimbatore and Munnar

Hi,

Can someone tell me the distance and driving time for Coimbatore to Munnar, and also Cochin to Munnar.

I have found numbers like 160-250 kms for Coimbatore to Munnar, and am not sure what the real figure is.

Thanks,

Hi

Coimbatore to Munnar is around 160 KMS and would be around 4.5 hours. The route is: Coimbatore – Pollachi –Udumalapet – Chinnar – Munnar

Coimbatore – Pollachi (45 kms) a single but wide road. Pollachi – Udumalapet (40 kms) a single but wide road (lined with large windmill farms). The diversion to munnar comes soon after crossing Udumalpet and it’s a 75 km climb up the mountains untill Munnar. The road is pretty good, but be cautious of some narrow stretches and bends.

Ernakulam (Cochin) to Munar takes about 4 hrs and is approximately 135 km away. The Ernakulam route would be Cochin - Thripunithra - Muvattupuzha - Kothamangalam - Neriamangalam - Adimali - Pallivasal - Munnar. Roads are generally good.

2. Re: Distance and driving time between Coimbatore and Munnar

Well I just did this journey myself by car in January and took the shortest route between Coimbatore and Munnar (via Pollachi, Dhali and Udumalaipettai) which was around 160 kms. From what I remember we managed to do this under 5 hours.

We did Munnar-Cochin thereafter, which was lovely 4 hour drive (via Muvattupuzha and Vazhakala) till the outskirts of Cochin. The entry into the city took a nightmarish one hour!
