Coimbatore — 3 nights

Manchester of India

Known throughout the country as a major industrial city, Coimbatore possesses a welcoming atmosphere and a growing cosmopolitanism.
Step out of Coimbatore with an excursion to Pykara Lake in Ooty (Udhagamandalam)--about 2 hours away. There's still lots to do: admire the natural beauty at Government Botanical Garden, pause for some photo ops at Narayana Kavi Memorial, stop by Codissia Trade Fair Complex, and take in the spiritual surroundings of Dhyanalinga.

For maps, other places to visit, ratings, and more tourist information, refer to the Coimbatore day trip planning website.

Salem to Coimbatore is an approximately 3.5-hour car ride. You can also drive. Expect a daytime high around 37°C in October, and nighttime lows around 26°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 4th (Mon) early enough to go by car to Madurai.
