Info

You will receive a warm welcome at the Cochin Airport or Railway Station. From there, we will head to your deluxe-category hotel in Cochin. After you check in and freshen up, we will take you to see around the prominent tourist spots in the city and towns nearby. After a good night rest in your hotel at Cochin, you can get ready the next morning for a one-and-a-half drive to the majestic waterfalls at Athirapally.

We will reach Valparai a little late in the evening. But on our drive to the verdant town, we will visit many significant tourist attractions like Vazchal falls, Sholayar Dam and Malakkapara. At Valparai, you will spend the next two nights at a spacious and charming bungalow.

On the fourth day, you will check out of the bungalow and we will drive to Parambikulam. Before we reach the wildlife sanctuary, we will visit some other popular attractions en route. The road we'd travel through has some 40 hair pin bends. So you can expect the drive to be amazing. The sanctuary promises real adventure. Your stay for the night is arranged in a treetop hut at the sanctuary.  

On the fifth day, we will head to Munnar. En route the long drive to Munnar, we will visit a beautiful unexplored tourist destination called Marayoor.  It is famous for its diversity in land and culture. You will spend the next two nights in a beautiful farm stay in Munnar. During the day, we will explore the hill station by visiting some of its most important tourist attractions and you can take part in some relaxing activities too.

On the seventh day, we will head to the pleasant town of Thekkady where you will spend two nights in a lush green resort. We will take you to a popular boat ride in the Periyar Lake, an elephant ride and some other sightseeing spots during your two-day stay in Thekkady.

On the ninth day, we will head to the Vembanad Lake where you will enjoy a wonderful stay in an elegant houseboat.

The next morning, after checking out of the houseboat, we will take you around the serene village of Alleppey where you can enjoy glimpses of a typical village life and get to know the cheerful people living there. You will also get to try the unique and popular Shikkara cruise. Your stay for the night is arranged at a backwater resort. The resort offers quite a few delightful activities to its guests.  

On the eleventh day, we will take you to Trivandrum where you will spend the next two nights in a pleasant wellness resort. During the two days in Trivandrum, you will get to visit the serene beaches in and around the city and the museum and zoo. You can also enjoy a fantastic boating experience in Poovar.

On the thirteenth day, we will take you to Kanyakumari which is right at the tip of the country. You get some magnificent sunset views near the sea in Kanyakumari. You will check in to a hotel where your room will overlook the sea. We will visit a few sightseeing spots in Kanyakumari. The next day, you can get up early to catch the sunrise. Then you can have your breakfast at the hotel after which we head to Trivandrum.

At Trivandrum, we could take you to visit some other sightseeing spots or you could do some shopping. After you shop until satisfied, we will drop you at the airport or railway station.

Editor's Review

The unique tour plan ensures that you have a special holiday experience that most travellers miss because of lack of time. During your adventurous trip, you will visit the evergreen hill station of Munnar and be delighted with the sights of sprawling tea plantations. The clean, fresh air of the verdant suburb of Valparai and its beautiful adventures leave you feeling ecstatic. Well, the adventure is just beginning. 

When you spend a night in the aesthetically designed tree house right in the middle of a wildlife sanctuary, you feel like you've befriended nature itself. The chirping of exotic birds in the wild yet pleasant environment of Thekkady will only deepen this bond. As you look at the horizon while walking on the seashores of Kovalam and Kanyakumai, the glorious view will fill you with awe. 

Surrounded with serenity, the charming estate bungalow at Valparai redefines royalty. At Munnar, the farm stay that becomes your home for two days blooms with tranquil beauty. It manifests a whole new lifestyle which you'll start liking the moment you check in. The sea-facing hotel and the spa resort offer you more than you can ever ask for. But it is during the cruise through the scenic backwaters in your elegant houseboat that you realize how you've truly experienced Kerala.

The adventurous boat rides, spellbinding viewpoints, historic sightseeing locations and the quirky route to Munnar will add to and complete the experience.
