Munnar from Vellore

Can anyone advise me please - How is it best to travel from Vellore to Munnar?

I have looked at flights - but we need to go back to Chennai to fly to Cochin. So there is 2-3 hours in a car at either end of the journey.

Is it possible to do the whole journey by car?

If so are there good places to stop off on the way?

Or - what about trains?

Thank you, Anne

Thank you so much for all the suggestions!

My current plan is to travel on the overnight train (Trivandrum Mail) 9.30 pm from Katpadi Junction

Arrive Aluva at 05.45 and get a cab from Aluva to Munnar - 86km - slow scenic travel, stop for any photo shots, arrive Munnar before lunch.

Sounds a good plan!

I have to wait to book the train though - 30 days before travel?

Thanks again, Anne
