TribalBoy wrote:@Hari - The evil Doc (Louis) actually suggested that we drive on the climb and after Kulamavu ride to Idukki. But majority wanted to do the climb, so we opted for that.

The hard climb starts after about 18-20km. The total distance in this figure is about 75km which includes too and fro.
