namaskaram,

Beginning 2012 we (two) will visit Kerala and Tamil Nadu for three weeks, spending at least three days in each places we will visit (so six places). We will arrive in Trivandrum and we want to make a loop (radius no more than 250 km) from this city (South, East, East-North East). Already we went twice in Tamil Nadu and Kerala (Madurai, Trivandrum, Kovalam, Kolam, Chennai, Mallalapuram, Chidanbaram, Kumbakonam, Tanjavur, Trichy, Karikal... and we loved very much). We want to discover new places and especially Kanyakumari (for my wife) and Neyyar wildlife sanctuary (for me). If you have any other idea...

In a guide book I found very little informations about Neyyar wildlife sanctuary*. I would like to know :

How to reach it, by train, taxi, bus, from Trivandrum, from Kanyaakumaarii... ?

Where to sleep ? We found Dukes Forest lodge but we would be happy to find something a little less expensive. And we don't want to go in the Sivananda Yoga Vedanta Dhanwantari Ashram (no yoga...). Do you know Agasthya House or an another place (no to much more than 2500 rps per night) ?

How to visit the sanctuary ? Probably we will need a a jeep with a driver-guide ?

Thank you very much for any information

Jacques

* When I read this - http://www.indiamike.com/india/india...rth-it-t75460/ - I think it is not a so good idea...

Hi !

We changed the plan. Three nights in Chennai, three in Tanjore (in Valli after 16 years...!), one afternoon and a good diner in Trichy waiting for the train. And direct to kanyakumari for 10 days visting around.
