We travel from Palani to Kodaikanal road. The road is somehow damaged in few areas but overall it was good travel. We took almost 2 hrs only from Palani to Silver Falls. View is very good in this Ghat road and the hair pin bend is only 14 nos. which is very easier to climb in Maruti Alto itself. The roads are wider after the hair pin bend and it was nice experience.

First of all it is a pleasant journey to my one of the favourite destination of all time, that is too with Kallada is a nice experience in terms of journey and of course comfortability. The place was very nice and can be a good spot for couples who are newly married. There are many place for sightseeing and we had lots of fun.

Car travelling was excellent. We travelled within in a very less time. We also took some halts in between. Thanks to the excellent dhabas and restuarants, had some good food in between in a dhaba which was also decent. The route was also good, with no pot holes. And the scenes around were breathtaking.

While returning I came via Palani route. It was good hills station. My over all experience to visit this place is really good and I recommend this place to visit.
An advice come by a car because there is lot places to view in different stops. About road condition it is good.
