    Hey tarc! Was expecting you...

    The gang told me about this! I was thinking of PM'ing you but because I heard that you wanted to do it solo, I was a bit hesitant. Also our route plans seem to be polarised! Myself, concentrating on the foresty Central - Eastern Kerala and yourself sticking to North .
    Nevertheless, Riding alongside the Bull is a privilege my little FZ wouldn't want to miss.

    And dude, game for a short 4 day ride to Munnar this weekend?..

    LOL!! Its not that I wanted to do solo, though I had that thought earlier..the situation in office was a bit unstable..i mean, i wasnt sure about my leaves for the Munnar ride till this Monday..i wasnt sure whether i ll ride this week or the next week..thats why didnt ask anyone, afraid that I will spoil their plans too..by the time, i was sure of the leaves, i knew it was too late to ask anyone

    I hope we can ride together next time..i will update u as days pass

    It is very scenic, adventerous, off roading & what not? If you're looking for real thrill, then Nelliyampathy via Valparai

    Some google images

    @aargee:
    Noted..

    @Anant:
    I have gone through Thekkadi and Idukki only in a cage and that was during school days a long long time ago. I have this memory of lush greenery on both sides. The attached pics just gave me a huge dash of enviable nostalgia .

    Incidentally, I was reading your trip logs as well.

    Hope to meet you sometime before the trip, the maps would be useful. I already have one of those Map booklets, but I don't think they are detailed enough.

    Get Eicher maps, they're damn accurate.

    For Wayanad another best way - Bangalore -> Mysore -> Guldalpet -> Sultan battery -> Wayanad.

    I remember someone was able to find this at Odyssey; I'm too looking to buy one. Its a worth investment, next to GPS.
