It is a nice trip. My family enjoyed the trip. Really we feel that we are not in the car. Car travelling is very comfort. Because we can closely see and enjoy the natural beauty. Roads are fantastic. So we can safely drive the vehicle without fear. On the way we eat very good Tamil foods.

Its nice route till Kumali with lot of hill roads. From Cumbam to Theni now road expansion work goes on so little difficult the drive. After Theni till Kodai all route are good with hill roads. Only thing need to note down after Theni there was no so much hotels till Kodai.

Once you start driving your car on hills you will feel like you are going to the top of the world. Once you are moving close to Kodaikanal you will start feeling the cool breeze. Whoever is travelling in car just switch off the AC and open your car window and just enjoy the pure and cool breeze.
