    Take Bangalore-Hosur-Krishnagiri-Vellore-Kancheepuram-Chengalput-Mamallapuram

    You can break at Kanchi to visit some temples and have food at Saravana Bhavan. Mamallapuram beaches are busy till 9pm. No issues. Where have you planned to stay?

    For vegetarian, Hotel Mamalla is decent. At least for once you can try the seaside restaurant at GRT Temple bay if you are non vegetarian. They are expensive but it will be very nice experience for you.

    Please suggest me alternative route for the return trip.I heard the Walayar-Coimbathore route is also in same condition.

    Probable routes would be:

    Route 1: Cochin - Palakkad - CB - Mettupalyam - Ooty (Road conditions from CB should be good enough)
    Route 2: Cochin - Palakkad - Mannarkad - Mulli - Manjoor - Lovedale - Ooty (Very adventourous and scenic route. Road condition Kottathara-Mulli need to be checked)

    Route 1 should be straight forward. You can try both routes alternatively for coming and going.
    Check Hotel Darshan near Ooty Lake, Sapphire Grande, Lakeview, DelightzInn. All these are good and decent for family.
    Time taken for Route 2 will be little more but I have heard it provides great vistas. Off-season rates should be within your budget.

    We are in mid-Sept and I think this is the best period to visit Kas Pathar. Last year, I was told, because of erratic rain, the Plateau was not in its full glory. Any idea / update about the condition this year?

    Because of the crowd on weekends, I'm planning to visit the place on weekdays.
