Harige is where you get on to the Bangalore - Honavar road, a butter-smooth stretch of asphalt. There are a number of quaint eateries, where you can wait for your buddies to arrive

Home to one of the largest monolithic statues in the world, the roads to and from Channarayapattana are dotted with rice and paddy fields. Sip on some refreshing sugarcane juice as you and your buddies take a much-needed break on the way to your next destination

Mysore

Mysore is as famous for its cuisine as it is for its rich history. The roads to Mysore are very, very good. Do watch out for elephant herds on the highway, though!

Wayanad is known as a huge ecological reserve. Bikers, though, will relish the wonderful mountain roads that snake through this tourist destination. A number of jungle lodges and resorts are available, for you to spend an evening close to Nature.

Ooty

This is where you enter Tamil Nadu on this ride. Loved by photographers and bikers alike, Ooty has a number of tight, curved mountain roads where you can experience biking bliss. The 110km ride to Ooty is not complete without a stay at one of the many Victorian-style cottages. The sunrise here is simply breathtaking !

Hope you have a heavy breakfast because the next leg of your trip will surely tax you. Full of tight hairpins, S-bends and steep inclines, your descend into Kerala begins from Munnar. Welcome to God's own country! Make sure you halt at a local dosa house, because you can will be spoilt for choice having to choose from 250 varieties of the famous Indian pancake.

Devikulam

Located on the road to Thekkady, Devikulam offers an almost-Mediterranean setting. Sheer cliffs on one side, and huge hillocks on the other, riding here will be sheer joy. There are very few petrol pumps along the way, so make sure you conserve fuel until the next halt, which is Thekkady

Kannan Devan

Kannan Devan is actually a huge tea estate. The corners here are all blind, so please maintain proper formation. If you have the time, do visit the Tea Museum, run by the company that owns the entire estate.

Thekkady

Just a little further on from Munnar, and you reach Thekkady. The roads here are as if dreamed up by a biker, because they offer bliss unlike anything else. Lush forests on either side, superb asphalt in front of you, and unforgettable corners make the Munnar-Thekkady road a traveller's favourite. When at Thekkady, spending the night at an inn near the Periyar National Park is compulsory!
