Welcome to TA. Budget hotels you can try Bellmount Resorts, Green Ridge or Marthoma Retreat.

If you have 3 Nights at Munnar, you would be able to cover all the places.

Please carry umbrella with you, as it is Monsoon season.

Have a great time in Munnar

Hi SurajDaddy

2 days are good enough for Munnar. But, be prepared for Monsoon rains.

Dear sir

You had chose the best routes from Coimbatore to Munnar you are travelling through chinnar wildlife sanctuary and the best area to spot wild animals ,You can also cover the world famous Marayoor sandal wood forest in this route.

But please avoid this route during night times as their may be elephants in the road

My suggestion is to start with otty before munnar

Day 01 Arrival at coimbatore and night stay at otty

Day 02 otty overnight stay

Day 3 t-ransfer from otty to munnar over night stay at Munnar

( Have look at Chinnar sanctuary)

Travel tips carry rain costumes and jackets must Purchase tea powder from

Tatta tea outlets close to Tea factories

Day 4 - overnight at Munnar

Day 05-Transfer to Thekkady overnight stay (Munnar- thekkady is 110 KMS )

Travel tip -Have food from Ambady hotel Thekkady must try & Elephant ride at elephant Junction, u will get the best spices Cardamom and pepper from the spice markets at Thekkady.Eveaning boating is advicable.

Day 06-Transfer to kodai ( Have a look at Garape wine yards of Cumbam on the way)

Day 07 Transfer to Madurai Airport/Kodai road RW stationsn
