Travelled in Chevrolet spark, travelled more than 200 km one side. Roads conditions was just ok except for few places it was horrible. Traffic was less to high range, slight drizzle on the way made the drive very nice. Stopped at Kothamangalam and cheruthoni for food.

The ride was not all that great as people who are not used to such roads will feel very tired and nauseous and your head starts hurting. It was just a four hours drive however it seemed like it was never ending. Although the scenery was nice. The trip can be very tiring because of the roads for which you might end up skipping a day when you actually reach your destination as you will be too tired to do anything.

It was a nice experience when comes to driving! The roads were extremely in good condition having sign boards every where. We enjoyed the hilly areas driving along with the tea plantations. While driving you must be very cautious about the hilly areas. Never drive rash and negligent.
