Thank you for sharing, Moved it to a new post for more visibility. 
Looks like you had a blast. Beautiful pictures.

You averaged more than 320 Kilometers per day, that is one heck of a ride. 

How is the road to Athirappilly waterfalls? I loved driving on the forest road towards the waterfalls in 2017.

Wow, Heck of a trip that would have been. 
Firstly thank you for sharing your experience with us? 
In how many legs have you done with trip? Any accommodations or restaurants you have across which needed a special mention?

Thank you Gowtham and Sagar gaaru.

 

Before jumping on to the detailed flow of my latest trip, I would like to thank you guys first for creating and actively moving in this platform.

 

By the way, I am a solo bike rider who takes a max of 10 days of personal time off from work (of every 12 months, and these 10 days are only for my long bike ride). Mostly I take these 10 days from the month of December, because it will not impact business and company much, and I like foggy views, year-end feeling, etc. (Actually, December has its own advantages in my case, but it's completely a different story so not covering here)

 

Coming to the details: (This is to the people who all are reading and planning a long ride to Kerala)

11th December: 

-> 5:00 AM: Done with all the setup by marking this sheet (https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/e/2PACX-1vQR7v2txYCS7aX410oyE3EmiwaoBqb8JurF782LSGIpijCWResBEKh8JFdteKDMwIY_FHRkAKx70F2R/pubhtml)

-> Around 6:00 AM: Done with Breakfast 2 Idly 

-> 6:57 AM: Started from home

-> Took 3 total stops (Max 20 Mins each) in between, before reaching Bangalore.

-> Reached hotel in Bangalore at some around 6:30 in the evening (STOP for the Day 1)

 

Max speed: 110, Min speed: 60 KMPH

 

12th December:

-> Started around 8:00 AM from Bangalore and reached 900 woods - (Meppadi -> Thollayiram Rd, Vellarimala, Kerala) (Reached around 6:00 PM) 5 total stops (Max 30 Mins each)

-> Jungle Stay, Night tent camping, sunrise trekking + food was arranged by http://www.wildind.in/ (It was really a great experience to stay in a jungle, in a small tent without having signals for communication... If you are using Jio, you will get some least strength of the signal at a certain point if you stand on a rock :P and it will not help us in any way to get cellular network, Mine is airtel, so it was a complete shut)

 

13th December:

 

Early morning: Trekking managed by Wildind as mentioned above. (Trust me, it was the best trekking in my life till date, and below pic is a proof for that) (Dear admin, you can remove the below pic, if it is crossing the terms and conditions of this site)

IMG_6296.JPG.6e7cd1ea4f53af9f5d0edb966bdcd556.JPG

 

Started from Jungle to Meppadi (around 12:30 PM and reached a hotel in Meppadi around 3:30 PM)

-> Pookodi lake from Hotel (Worst Lake I have ever seen in my life) -> 2 Hours literelly wasted here.

-> Night at Hotel Meppadi

 

Max speed: 100, Min speed: 30 KMPH

 

14th December:

-> From hotel to Chembra peak (Started at 6:00 AM from hotel to the ticket counter of Chembra peak, because only 200 visitors are allowed/day to climb it)

Chembra peak is literally Heaven... I enjoyed it a lot.

-> Returned to hotel from Chembra peak by around 2 PM.

-> Started to Athrirapalli from hotel (and in between covered Lakkidi viewpoint) around 3:00 PM and took a stop for night stay, in Kodassery (This is near to Athrirapalli), and reached hotel by 10 PM.

 

Max speed: 100, Min speed: 30 KMPH

 

15th December:

-> Started to Athriapally water falls from hotel around 7:30 AM and reached to it in 50 Mins (Again, it was a thrilling bike ride experience in a scenic forest road)

-> Next stop: Vazhachal Waterfalls (Actually next stop of Athrirapally was some other waterfalls, but I forgot the name of it)

->  Vazhachal Waterfalls to Hotel, then started to Munnar on the same day and reached Munnar by exactly 5:00 PM 

-> 5:15 PM: Kalari Kshethra (and the people here are very sweet and honest, they helped me to get a good scenic stay)

-> Stay.

 

16th December:

-> Started from Hotel (Some around 5:00 AM) and covered below

  • Sunrise, ponmudi
  • Hanging bridge
  • Ponmudi dam 
  • Chunayanmakkal waterfalls

  • Varayattumotta

  • Peppara Wildlife Sanctuary

and all the above were very close to each other so all these were done by around 10:30 AM, and on the same day below (actual Munnar) was also covered

  • Munnar Tea gardens
  • If you have a bike, I suggest you to ride on the same road of Anamudi (I don't think a car can go well in that road, but you will not forget it in your life)
  • Anamudi
  • Eravikulam National Park

  • Photo point

  • Mattupetty Dam

-> Started from hotel in Munnar to Kodaikanal (Reached Hotel in Kodaikanal by around 9 PM)

 

17th December:

 

Done with

  • Dolphin's nose
  • Echo point
  • Pine Tree Forest
  • Guna Caves 
  • Green Valley Viewpoint

  • Kodaikanal Lake
  • Bryant Park
  • Coaker's Walk (Actually Coaker's Walk was covered on 18th December, because of full fog, view was bad on 17th December so re-visited Coaker's Walk on 18th December)
  • Solar Observatory 

-> Again, we can cover everything in Kodai just in 8 hours, because all places are very close to each other.

-> Back to Hotel.

 

18th December:

-> Kodai to Bangalore (3 rest stops, Max 20 mins each)

-> Stay

 

Max speed: 110, Min speed: 60 KMPH

 

19th December: 

-> Bangalore to Hyderabad (3 rest stops, Max 20 mins each)

 

Max speed: 110, Min speed: 60 KMPH

 

20th Back to work.

 

Only point where I was little upset is... I was not able to cover Wayanad properly and skipped Alappuzha because of covid restrictions, but anyway added Kodai to my list and I enjoyed a lot in Kodai.

 

Pranamam 🙏

Thank you Sagar. I
t was a nice round trip and next December is for Kanyakumari and Danushkodi is what I am planning. ☺️


Have you covered Vattakanal during your visit to Kodai? Danushkodi is a brilliant place to do and you could probably cover Wayanad during that trip.. 
Overall, excellent post with great details. 
Congratulations on finishing this trip successfully. More to go.. Keep sharing your experiences.

Oh yeah, I have covered some waterfalls and spots in Vattakanal... I forgot to mention it specifically. Thanks for reminding.... and by the way, yeah I should have covered Wayanad properly, but I will plan some other time to finish it off. Actually I was out of energy to cover places like Edakkal caves, some dams, and reviews were also not so special, so I skipped, but surely I'll cover those in future to satisfy my heart.

 

Yes, more to go... still Kanyakumari and Danushkodi are there in the list to proudly say "I have completed south India with may fat boy RE" ☺️ and I am eagerly waiting for the next December.

I always wanted to go on such a trip, bike ride across the country. It was beautiful experience reading your journey. 
What are the challenges you face while riding solo? 

Great... you can simply do that if you have a picture perfect plan.

 

Coming to the challenges:

Mostly nothing... My first long ride was from Hyderabad to Goa, and I still remember how badly I planned that and how worst it came out. But from next to that... I never faced any challenges in my long rides... Because every time I plan at least before 15 days, write every need in one excel, arrange needs at least before 1 week, and check everything before a day of a long ride. So, I never faced any challenges in any of my trip, except in HYD-GOA ride.

Never did a solo trip till now. No need to convince your family/friends 😆

You can visit which ever place you want. Enjoy the freedom while you can.
Hope for more such trips ahead. 
Thank you for sharing your wonderful journey with us.
