oct whould be raining.. but not sure of this time. anyways it will be pleasant.

october is the start of second season!

Not every hill has hairpin bends. the roads will be very curvy and less wide if you compare ooty.

from dindugal get directions to kodai road. which will lead you direct to kodai

In the present scenario, October would be a very good time to visit Kodai, as rains of failed and a return of monsoon is expected. Kodai is an all year around destination and is pleasant always. Technically, October is the start of season also.

The route would be Dindigul - Batlagundu - Kodaikanal. You may reach Batlagundu by the NH 7(via Kodai Road) or the SH 183, the difference in the distance by both routes is negligible. So, it boils down to from which part of Dindigul you travel.

For things to do and restaurants, suggest you look at the reviews and older posts in the forum, as they have been discussed very frequently.

Feel free to revert for further clarifications.

Hi All,

I am also planning a drive by my new TATA Aria SUV around same dates - Oct 21. Is the road wide enough for this SUV.

What are the plances we can cover near Kodaikanal ? How about Madhurai ? Is there anything to visit there ? I found this route suggestions -

Blr-Hosur-Rayakottai-Palakkodu-thopppur-mettur-bhavani-Kangayam-Dharapuram.At Dharapuram, ask for Palani route

Hi...

Tempo travellers & Volvo buses do this route, so I don't see a cause for concern for an Aria. You may directly head from Thoppur to Salem, Karur, Namakkal, Dindigul and Kodaikanal. These are highways and the roads are pretty good. The Mettur - Bhavani stretch is not as recommended as roads arre bad and this is not a direct route, but it is definitely shorter by 30 odd kilometres. If you want to cut short, take a diversion just befor the Salem Airport to Omalur and reach this highway via Konganapuram, Tharamangalam, Idapadi & Erode (need not touch Bhavani). This road is good and will serve your purpose.

Be aware that if you make one mistake in taking any diversion, you would lose the advantage.

Regards

If you don't plan on returning soon, you must visit Madurai Meenakshi Temple. One could easily spend 3-4 hours within the temple. Its big and beautiful.

Madurai is more of a temple city. So, if you want to visit some good temples, then Madurai would be the ideal choice. For things to do in Kodaikanal, please read a couple of more threads, as this has been discussed many times.
