    Chennai-Valparai: Chennai-Tindivanam-Ulundurpet-Salem-Bhavani-Avinashi(Get to the Service road and Dont take the immediate left, which wil take you through Tiruppur. Continue for about a Km and then turn left for Palladam Route) -Palladam-Pollachi-Iyerpadi-Valparai_Athirapalli falls.

    Bikes are not allowed inside Parambikulam/Top Slip. You can park the bike at Sethumadai and then take a bus up. Considering staying options in Parambikulam, very faint chances you might get in parambikulam. If you skip parambikulam you can cover Valparai-Athirapalli and Munnar too in the time frame mentioned. But make sure you keep a tab on accommodation since its a loong weekend and both the places would be crowded with tourists.

    Would suggest you staying in Malakkappara, rather than Valparai. you get stay at much cheaper rate.

    Good luck with the ride. The road towards Athirappally was good a couple of months back. Be prepared for rains, and when it rains, it pours.
