Hi -

I have just joined the site and totally amazed to find the rich information shared in the forums.
To start with I want to take some advice on an itinerary that I am working on for Kerala in january.

I will be starting from Hyderabad. It will be me and my wife travelling.

Day 1 - Fly to Coimbatore in morning - Reach by 10.00. Drive down to Munnar through Chinnar , Marayoor. Stay at Munnar

Day 2 - Munnar - Sight seeing

Day 3 - Munnar - Leisure

Day 4 - Start from Munnar in morning
Visit Either Periyar Or Fort Kochi

Day 5 - Alleppey - backwater cruise

Day 6 - Varkala or Kovalam

Day 7 - Kanyakumari

Day 08 - Fly from Trivendrum

Please let me know if this sounds resonable or can this be made better . Also on Day 4 will fort kochi be better or Periyar
Also on Day 6 will varkala be better or kovalam.

Thanks in advance for the suggestions and looking forward to participate in other discussion threads in future

Hi, Deep09, and welcome to the site! I think your itinerary is a bit hectic in the second part, as everyday you have to move to the new place. If I were you, I would start from Munnar to Fort Cochin (about 3.5-4 hours) and stay there, exploring the old city in one day and making a backwater tour from Cochin the next day (my friends just 3 weeks ago had such tour with KTDC Tourist Reception Centre and were very pleased with the experience). The next day early in the morning (or even the same day in the evening, if you want to have a morning swimming) I would move to Varkala or Kovalam (there are lots of trains) and spend the rest of time there - if you deside to visit Kanyakumari you can easily do it as a day-trip, and Trivandrum airport is not far from Varkala/Kovalam, so you can get there easily.

Can't comment about what's better - Varkala or Kovalam as I haven't been to Kovalam. But Kovalam is nearer to Kanyakumari and Trivandrum airport - so you can choose it.

Have a good trip!
Past the point of no return...
