There are few other places inside Kanthalloor like Pattissery Dam, Jaggery Factory to visit and activities like Night Forest Safari, Shola Forest Trekking and local garden visits; but it's only on your own interest.
Distance from Major Locations to Kanthalloor:
Udumalaipettai - 60kms
Munnar - 50kms
Coimbatore - 120kms
Theni - 130kms
Cochin - 160kms
Chennai - 575kms
How to Reach:
The best way to reach Kanthalloor is by your own vehicle I would say. Because there aren't any frequent transportation yet to this town directly. If you're planning via Bus or Train, then Udumalaipettai / Udumalpet is the nearest Junction and on the other side Theni and Cochin are nearest points from other routes. If you reach Udumalpet, you can board Munnar Bus and get down at Marayoor - which is the centre point and from there you have frequent share autos and jeeps till Kanthalloor. There's hardly only one bus from Marayoor to Kanthalloor so it's better to take the previous options.
If you're coming from either Theni or Cochin, then you have buses till Munnar. And then you need to come till Marayoor via another bus or jeeps and from Marayoor it follows as I mentioned above.
Since Kanthalloor is only a developing tourist destination, it is yet to get its major transportation facilities.
Places to Stay:
All types of accommodations are available here.
For luxuries stays, you have premium resorts and cottages.
Standard rooms and resorts are available on high numbers. For group travellers, you have villa like stays and mud houses.
And, for Budget Friendly you have Campsites, Homestays and low budget cottages which is highly recommended for Solo Travellers, Photographers, Bikers and Hikers who prefer budget trips. These stays are comfortable and the property owners are friendly too.
On my personal stay experience, I stayed at Kanthalloor Glamping, a campsite near the Kanthalloor's center part. My stay wasn't a paid one since I went there for a Travel Assignment, but I would assure that this is the best campsite in the locality. The prices are budget friendly with activities included in their packages. I would definitely recommend this place. Please note, this is not a promotional content, all are based on my personal experience.
I'll put out the list of highly recommended stays soon in my feed..!
