Hello! I need to get from Trivandrum to Periyar Wildlife Sanctuary in early March...what are my options?

Is there a bus that runs directly? If so, how long does it take and how much does it cost?

Is it possible to hire a car for the journey? What would be the cost for that? Any recommendations on where to find a driver/agency?

After 3 days in Periyar and around Thekkady, I'll need to get to Kottayam rail station. Is there a bus for that route? What about taxis?

I only have a small window of travel between Trivandrum and a train up north, so if there's a similar wildlife/nature experience closer to Trivandrum, that might be a better option. Suggestions appreciated!

Thanks in advance for your help!!

We did a similar route 2 years ago and had similar problema as to how to travel to Periyar. We found Jenny at fourens travel and Le royale homestay in Cochin. Se organised everything for us and I cannot reccomend her more highly. It really made our holiday, her drivers are good and very reliable and trustworthy. check out my Kerala report!

Hi IMers,
Didn't want to start a new thread on this and couldn't find a newer response.
I'm heading to Trivandrum in January with a mate and heading to Periyar from there.
What are people's best suggestions for a coach or car and driver for the journey? Is it easy enough to sort out once we are out there?

Thanks for any help guys.

Chris
