Pondicherry-Villupuram-Trichy-Madurai-Tirunelveli-Kanyakumari, is the only best route. Will take around 8 hours, in a stretch. Recommended to halt and go. Starts in the afternoon and halt in Madurai. I went by my own car, and on the way went to Thiruparankundram Temple, in Madurai. Then went to Nellaiappar Temple in Tirunelveli. Halted in Tirunelveli, and next day went to Kanyakumari, which is just 100 km from there.
