The journey was quite good with only minor hiccups along the way. Travel buffs will certainly enjoy the ride as there are great views along the road that leads to Thekkady. The food will depend on the hotel you stop at. But it's very enjoyable if taken in the right spirit. This is about the route we took and experience may differ on other routes to Thekkady.

The roads were good it was a rainy season too but didn't experience much of a problem with bad road. Was a comfortable family time in the car experiencing the scenic beauty of Idukki district. All over it was an amazing experience.

It's a good experience, very long travel in the hairpin bend roads. Full of greenery on both sides of the roads. On the way we had idly. Kerala special herbal water is good.

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.
