3 weeks in South India Aug-Sept 2014, itinerary advice...


My boyfriend and I will be landing in Mumbai on the 19th Aug and are planning to travel around South India but we don't really have a clear itinerary. Any must see places? We would like to see the backwaters in Kerala, and go to Goa but apart from that are open to any suggestions.

Also, what's travelling around S.India like during monsoon season?

Welcome to kerala :)

August will be monsoon time in kerala.another good thing to mention is its time of Festival Onam and snake boat races are held in this season.because of off season,you will be getting good rates in accomodation.

Unlike goa,kerala has much more to offer than beaches.of course kerala beaches wont be lively as that of goa and there are not much water sports available.

for complete sightseeing of kerala,you need atleast 3 weeks.i will give some important places in kerala starting from south & you may select according to your intrest

kovalam 3days (you may do day trips to kanyakumari,poovar islands & trivandrum from kovalam)

varkala-cliff & beach-1d

Cochin-heritage -1d

munnar- hill station(3-4d)

Thekkady-forest/wild life-(2-4d depends on ecotourism activities)

Kumarakom lake side resorts-(1-2d)



THRISSUR-(onam activities)-(1-2 d)

Wayanad-hill station-(4d)

You may check tripadvisor for each of these places to select which suits you.also check kerala forums too for some ideas.if you can tell the places intrested,we could make an itinerary
