Hi

The best option for you is

cochin(1d)>munnar(2d)>thekkady(1d)>kumarakom(1d)>alapuzha houseboat(1d)>cochin

cochin can be done either first or last of trip depending upon your time of arrival or departure

*If you want to reduce number of places,skip thekkady & add it to munnar & do houseboat ride in kumarakom itself

*if you want to include a beach,consider marari near alapuzha or cherai near cochin

*since you are travelling in children & adults,better to do houseboat day trip rather than overnight stay

*if you need any furthur help pls do post

Regards

Suggested itinerary is as follows:

Day 1 – Kochi

It has a bit of the beach, you can stroll around as you wish, plenty of watering holes and sea food at it’s best. Jews Street is is dominated by antique stores and spice traders and is one of the best places for shopping. You will find anything, from aromatic oils and Ayurvedic soap to organic spices and antiques. If you feel like more shopping, take a boat to Ernakulam, where you can shop till you get tired. There are frequent boats to Ernakulam.

Day 2, 3 – Munnar

Munnar at 1,600 m above sea level is the most popular hill resort. The sprawling tea plantations, Eravikulam National Park, Anamudi Peak, Mattupetty dam, Chinnakanal & Anayirangal, Top Station, Tea Museum etc. are some of the important places to visit.

Day 4 – Thekkady

Thekkady is a wildlife sanctuary spread over an area of 777 Sq.Kms, surrounded by an artificial lake over an area of 25 Sq.Kms. It is placed at an altitude of 700m above the sea level. This is a tiger reserve, but the greatest attraction of Periyar, however, are the herds of wild elephants that come down to play in the lake.

Day 5 – Gavi

Gavi is an eco-tourist spot in Kerala. Gavi is mainly known for its wildlife. Endangered species including the Nilgiri Tahr and Lion-tailed macaque are often sighted at the outskirts of Gavi. Kerala’s very own treasure elephants can be sighted abundantly.

Day 6- Alleppey/Kumarakom

Alleppey has a large network of inland canals earning it the sobriquet "Venice of the east". These large network of canals provide Alleppey its lifeline. The boat cruise along the backwaters of Alleppey give one first hand experience of the life style; toddy tapping, fishing for small fry, Coir-making, prawn farming etc., which remains more or less unchanged over the years.

Kumarakom

Kumarakom an enchanting backwater destination is a cluster of little islands on the Vembanad Lake, and is part of the Kuttanad region. The mangrove forests, green paddy fields and coconut trees, the water ways and canals adorned with white lilies enchants the tourist from world over. The bird sanctuary here, which is spread across 14 acres is a favourite haunt of migratory birds and an ornithologist's paradise.

Hi Sanjay,

it is tough to predict the weather now , it wasnt raining the beginning of this week but today onwards it is raining

it wont be hot during august , i would say it is will be pleasant

staying more days in munnar is good , so that you can see the sights based on the weather .

i would also like to add that august is busy time for the houseboats due to the snake boat race at Alleppey ( second sat of August)
