    you might not be able to complete the journey in 8 hrs. I believe it will take 10 hrs easily. last 3 hrs would be spent driving on the ghats itself. If possible start early morning. If night drive is the the only option, take adequate rest before the journey!

    I just returned from Kodai trip y'day, it is very crowded. You can visit all the places during the day, some of these are, Kodai Lake (Boating), Bryant Park ( it is a garden), Upper Lake View, Pine Tree forest, Pillar Rocks, and a cave place (don't remember the name).. it is just one road, you can visit all the places.

    roads are good all the way through on your map. But like shams says 8 hrs might not be enough.
    Stress due to driving wont be there but time wise its better you plan with another 2 hrs added to your schedule.
