We would like to travel from Bangalore to Cochin in a car, please give the road condition for the travel and the best route.
Thanks in advance
Welcome to Trip Advisor.
The best route would be Bangalore - Hosur - Krishnagiri - Dharmapuri - Salem - Erode - Avinashi - Walayar - Angamally -Kochi.
You may also try the other route, i.e., Bangalore - Mysore - Masinagudi - Nilambur - Pattikad - Chavvakad - Thriprayar - Paravoor - Edapally - Kochi. This might be shorter by about 50 kms but a major part is hills.

thanx buddy. how is the road and time taken?
The first one is the general safe bet... All, more or less 4 lane highways. The other one via Mysore would be 2 lane and at times single. This is the professional route that is a adventure's route. They are hilly terrains but scenic, a tough ride. The first one would be a easy pass with a lot of good resting options etc. NH would take close to 9/10 hrs non stop and the other should take 12/13 hrs.
grateful to you .
My pleasure. You may also consider reaching Coimbatore by route 2, turn in Nanjangod, and from Coimbatore follow route 1.
some one was mentioning about palakkad-thrissur-kochi [vytilla] .what about this
That is the route no. 1 I have mentioned. The combi of both I have indicated above would be Bangalore - Mysore - Nanjangudu - Chamrajnagar - Hasanur - Sathyamangalam - Puliampatti - Coimbatore - Palghat - Vadakkancherry - Chalakuddy - Angamally - Cochin. In case of taking this route, you need to take a diversion before Coimbatore, to avoid entering into the city. In that case, repost your message, I will let you know where exactly you need to take a diversion.
dear mr prasanna,
the map is slightly confusing.the route i make out is----blore-dhar'puri-salem-erode---nh 47-avinashi-kamachipuram-walayar-palakkad-angamaly-vytilla[destination.]
