Info

You will receive a warm welcome at the Cochin Airport or Railway Station. From there, we will head to your 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 long drive to Munnar.

En route the long drive to Munnar, you will be able to catch some spectacular views. 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 fourth 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. For the night, your stay is arranged in a forest-themed resort.

On the fifth 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 drive to Trivandrum. In Trivandrum, you will spend the next two nights in a famous 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. 

On the eighth day, you can check out of the resort and then we could take you to visit some other sightseeing spots in Trivandrum 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 at a leisurely pace. 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 cottage at Thekkady introduces you to a sort of pleasantness that is unique to a rainforest environment and the encounter is refreshing. Lastly, the wellness resort located right next to the beach proves to be a grand abode.

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. As you walk on the seashore at Kovalam and look at the horizon, the glorious view fills you with awe. But it is during the cruise through the scenic backwaters in the elegant houseboat that you realize how 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.
