I started early in the morning 5:00am from Munnar to udumbanchola but unfortunately the road to udumbanchola at that day was at work .somehow wandering 45mins ,found an alternative route to udumbanchola -nedumkandam.The route was pretty awesome with so many bends and curves and reached ponmudi hills station at around5pm.
And the road from Thekkady to ponmudi hills is vast and the scenery was pleasant.
