Hello!

I fly to Cochin at the beginning of April.
After 3 1/2 weeks I then fly back of Trivandrum to Europe (On the return flight the flight connections from Trivandrum are better).

I would like to stay only for 1 or 2 nights in Cochin.

I would like to go there to Kumily/Periyar by regular bus. (I would finally like to see something mor of the nature there. I was already beginning of December in Kumily. It had, however, rained merely 3 days and 3 nights.)

After some days it then shall go by regular bus to Munnar and from there after some days to Madurai.

I wanted to drive from Madurai actually by bus or train towards the south.
But where?
I look I find nothing remarkable into my guidebooks on the way to the coast (??)

I probably don't have enough time for an excursion to Rameshwaram. Furthermore I have heard too many different opinions on Rameshwaram and I must of Rameshwaram bach to Madurai to be able to travel in the direction of Trivandrum by bus or train - or??

Is it worthwhile to go from Madruai to Kanniyakumari for approx. 2 nights?
(I like it to watch people acually and to this still a beautiful sunrise and sunset??)

Do you have tips what I could visit after Madurai? ( on the way to Trivandrum)

(I was in the Backwaters only last December and I don't bear more as two days on the beaches of Kovalam or Varkala. I am too bored to lie in the sun.)

I thnk you for your many suggestions.

Dine

On your way from Kanyakumari to Trivandrum, you can get down at the Marthandam stop and go to Padmanabhapuram palace.. Also in the same route there is a waterfall about an hour or so from the palace.. you can get local busses to reach there..

Also when you reach trivandrum, you can consider going to Ponmudi hillstation for a night. Its about 60 km from trivandrum.. check the keralatourism webpage for details..
