Visiting Munnar in October.


I will be staying at Sterling for 7 days since I get free stay through a club. If I stay at Munnar, will I be able to cover Allepy, Kumarakom, Kovalam and Kanyakumari. I can spend on air if I have to go to these places.

Please advice.

Staying at Munnar and doing any of the places you have mentioned above is out of question. Only places you can do together is Alleppey and Kumarakom. For all other places, you will have to stay at the respective places.

Check whether Sterling got accommodation in any of those places.

The place you like to visit and the place you prefer to stay are some far locations. Better to stay in Munnar and spend some days and feel the beauty. The places you mentioned to visit are good tourist spots and any travelers didn't wish to miss those places, unfortunately no air service to this places too. and around 100km difference from Each places too.

Its better to ask sterling for any other place to stay which comfortable for you.

Thank you

Hi Ashjos,

Below is the driving time between the destinations ( one way non stop with normal traffic )

Munnar to Kumarakom - 4 Hours

Munnar to Alleppey - 5 Hours

Munnar to Kovalam - 8 Hours

Munnar to Kanyakumari - 10 Hours

Munnar to Thekkady - 3 Hours

Munnar to Ernakulam - 4 Hours

I think what you could do as a day trip it Thekkady , but again you have to think how much time you get to see around after driving 3 hours up and then 3 hours for return

so as suggested above , see if you get to stay at any other sterling property as part of the package
