travel info?

Anyone know of decent trekking places in South India?

I would prefer a hill station – thought of Kodai and Coonoor and Yercaud, but they seem to be too commercialized. I have been to Wayanad and Coorg already.

Must-haves are – Has to be really really green, no people, and at least 10 degrees cooler than Bangalore.

‘Prefer to haves’ would be – Rains, mist, and a nice waterfall maybe?:-) Decent accomadation closeby would also be nice. And yes, shoudn’t be more than an overnight journey from Bangalore.

Yes, I know, I am not very particular.;-)

        TN, 175 Km from Bangalore with _excellent_ roads. One can get there in 3.5 hours by car. You can google for people’s experiences etc.
