Info

You will receive a warm welcome at the Cochin Airport or Railway Station. From there, we head to Munnar. En route the 4-hour drive, you will be able to catch some spectacular views.

On the third day, we will head to the pleasant town of Thekkady where we will take you to a popular boat ride in the Periyar Lake, an elephant ride and some other sightseeing spots depending on the time we have. You will spend the night in a charming cottage that belongs to a forest-themed resort.

On the fourth 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 head back to Cochin. We could take you to visit some prominent sightseeing spots in the city 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 tour plan is designed to help you experience the best of God's own country in the limited time you have. The farm stay that becomes your home for two days blooms with serene beauty. It manifests a whole new lifestyle which you'll start liking the moment you check in. The resort at Thekkady introduces you to a sort of pleasantness that is unique to a rainforest environment and the encounter is refreshing. The mouth-watering delicacies make your stay even better.

During this memorable trip, you will visit the evergreen hill station of Munnar and be delighted by the sights of sprawling tea plantations. The chirping of exotic birds in the wild yet pleasant environment of Thekkady connects you to the natural world in a very special way. During the cruise through the scenic backwaters in the elegant houseboat, you can sense that you've truly experienced Kerala.  The adventurous boat rides, spellbinding viewpoints and historic sightseeing locations will ensure that you will remember this holiday for a long time.
