bhageer,

3 nights in Thekkady is waste of time. Why do your take the houseboat 2 times ? And 6 days arround Alleppey and Kumarakom? What is the idea?

Thanks for the prompt response.

- Isn't Kodanand Elephant Park and the Athirappally Falls on the way between Kochi & Munnar ?

I have been to Madurai and Kanyakumari several times in the past. Is it possible to do Munnar-Kodaikanal-Thekkady ? (never been to Kodaikanal)

Not only I would like to do a house boat cruise , but I also would like to do a country boat/canoe trip to see the small canals and the village life. As suggested, I can do an overnight cruise from Kumarakom to Alleppey, but which is the best place to do the village and canal tour ?

Thanks.

Hi Bhageer,

Trappable is different rout form Munnar. It can cover form Cochin. Athirappally and cherai beach can cover in a day trip from Cochin.

your travel plan is good. May 1/2 days Kerala home stay in Alleppey is also different experience. There are many attractive accommodation in all class available in Kerala. Early booking can ensure better price and avalibiliy.

Hi Bhageer,

Athirappalli is a different rout form Munnar. Athirappalli and cherai beach can cover in a day trip from Cochin.

Your travel plan is fine. Perhaps, 2 days in a Kerala home stay also may give a nice experience in your Kerala tour. . It is better to opt the accommodation near to destination. there many option in accommodation with nice food and other facilities. Early booking may help to avoid price hike and ensure the accommodation.
