  • BANGALORE - Madurai - Rameshwaram - Kanyakumari - Kodaikanal - Bangalore

    Hi All,

    Today I am planning to leave to Madhurai by Self drive(Car) with my wife. Tentative Plan or route I am seeing is as following,

    Not sure if the route will work or not,

    Secondly - Only the sightseeing written in front of the Day are the one which I know nothing else - Will be great if some one can guide me what else I should see so that nothing major should be miss.

    Day 1: Bangalore - Madurai (433 kms) - 2 Temples
    Day 2: Madurai - Rameshwaram (169kms) - Some Temple & Danushkodi
    Day 3: Rameshwaram - Kanyakumari (313kms) - Vivekananda Rock, Beach
    Day 4: Kanyakumari - Kodaikanal - Beauty on the way
    Day 5: Kodaikanal (lake, Nature)
    Day 6: Kodaikanal - Bangalore (Beauty on the way)

    Any Suggestion for the stay / food / Point not to miss / places to cover etc. will be of great help.

    Waiting for the reply.

    Hi Bharat,

    Though we are a motorcycle-centric entity and yours is going to be a roadtrip on car, it is ultimately the spirit of touring that is the common binding factor among us. And I hope regulars to this route will help you out in planning your journey in a better way.

    Happy Journey.

        Just check if they allow you to drive till Danushkodi without permits.

        Make to Kanyakumari for Sunrise or sunset. If possible skip Vivekananda rock & head to Trivandrum which is just 80 Kms; its getting too crowded to the rock these days & may waste upto half a day's time.

        All the places you're visiting are tourist places & you're bound to find good eateries & accomodation per your budget & finding one will be easy.

          After covering Madhurai and Kanyakumari, Reached Rameshwaram Island... Planning to leave for Dhanuskoti also known as Ghost City.

            Dont be surprised to find nothing in Danushkodi may be that is why it is called the Ghost City but the view is awsome!
            All the wise men of the world are called wise only after they spoke their mind, so dont keep the ideas to yourselves!
