"While negotiating each curve you feel that you have done something great"

The route from Cochin to Munnar is via Kothamangalam and Adimali and till Kothamangalam the drive was through a typical town road but the real excitement was the drive from Neryamangalam Bridge to Adimali. On crossing the bridge it is forest area and no need to look for the sign board, we will realize it on seeing the monkeys playing on both sides of the road and branches of trees. They are harmless but occasional cases of monkeys taking the hand bags and other items from the vehicles were reported. Also, we will feel the fresh air, can hear the murmuring of the forest and the drive after the check post is remarkable. The drive through the zigzag road was awe-inspiring and we had to be careful about the vehicles coming down from Munnar. On reaching Valara we stopped to see the waterfall ...Read More

"The scenic Zigzag road is thrilling and enjoyable"

Roads are good. The scenic Zigzag road is thrilling and enjoyable. Most area covered by thick forests waterfalls and streams. Its better to have little bit wider roads so 2 vehicle can smoothly pass without much problems. Need some parking points enroute so can have a relaxed break journey. There is stream passing through near to road but which is not accessible from road that is a disadvantage.

The journey to Munnar was full of excitement. The roads were very good and journey offered a lot of natural beauty to explore and capture. The food joints on the way ensured you don\'t travel empty stomach. You may take a halt at elephant safari on the way at elephant camp and have a good photo session. The tea garden, rose garden are good places to be. Do visit the spice garden to purchase some authentic spices and ayurvedic herbs and medicine.

"Bus took five hours hours from Kochi"

This was my first visit to Munnar. I boarded the bus from Kochi. There are lots of views that can be captured from camera on the way to Munnar. Journey was bit tiring and journey was of around 5 hours. Bus operator was good and so was the conductor. Bus seats were of good quality and it was an AC bus. My advice would be if you do not have budget constraint then you can also book a cab from Kochi to Munnar as there are many places in between where you would like to stop and take a snap.
