Travelog: Bangalore -> Kodaikanal -> Munnar -> Thekkady -> Ooty -> Bangalore, Part 2

We left Kodaikanal on 26th December 2012 to Munnar. We topped the fuel in Kodaikanal and left around 9:00am. Again we set the navigation to Munnar on the Android device and start. Since our resort was situated on Palani Ghat road, we took that road to go downhill.

The road is a typical ghat road so one has to be careful, there are places where only one vehicle can go across so, watch out for climbing vehicles, technically they have the right of the way.
The road crosses through few Wild Life Sanctuary check posts and every place you have to get down, right your vehicle number, name and then indirectly you are nudged to pay. The going rate seems to between 20 and 30 rupees.
11:45am Reached Palani, continued on Sathyamangalam Road.
12:30pm Reached Udumalaipettai. Continue on NH17. We continue following the road, many small towns, nothing of significance.
3:45pm Reached Munnar town. The city was completely jammed with traffic.

Roads are very narrow in whole section so one needs to be patient  with overtaking. The road surface is good.
