Last moment they cancelled the bus. Again had to rush to Kesineni Travels office to book different route bus. Didn't start on time. After crossing Bangalore bus was break down. Had to wait for 3-4 hours on road. Hectic journey. Bus was suppose to reach Coimbatore at 8-9 Am morning but we reach at 4 Pm.

Travel was very good and the view from Ghat section was very good. The construction activity on Ghat section makes it more comfortable for future travellers. People with motion sickness should prepare themselves for the Ghat section. We saw good range of fresh fruit stalls along the way.

First time drove for 48 Kms in Palani Ghat to Kodaikanal. It was very thrilling. Roads are narrow but was in good conditions. If you go by car during day time, you can enjoy the nature, scenic beauty in the valley. Fruits and vegetables are on sale. Small restaurants are located for refreshment. On the way you can see the big falls.

We enjoyed with family in sleeper class on the way our children enjoyed the greenery, rivers and green field, different people and culture. One bad thing in reservation coach, there is no security on the way because lot of general passenger entered and sleeping middle way, near toilets it is very uncomfortable for ladies and children.
