If you go by own vehicle, you have to get permit from Forest Dept which will be checked near Manimutharu Check post. It's better and advisable to go in Govt buses. So that you can feel free about permission and other things.
We have taken morning 2.45 AM bus from manimutharu. it was an awesome experience at the early morning we felt chill freeze air whole going. Normally the bus goes upto the village - Oothu . From there kuthiraivetti is about some 4KM.On the top(oothu) there is a small shop there you can get tea, coffee and food(you have to inform them). It's my personal advise to take a walk from oothu to kuthiraivetti, you can enjoy a water cross, beautiful tea estates, singing of birds, music of air and more. In kuthiraivetti there is a view point, from there you can see 3 dams(local said), but due to dense fog we able to see only one sadly... It was a nice place who needs some relaxation, loneliness. Have a nice trip!!!!
