Hi Travel gurus,

Joined this Forum to seek advise on plan for Kerala tour.

Sunday: Reach cochin by 2 PM and Return back on Sat at 9AM.

Here, confused , should directly head to Munnar or Allepey?
As I am reaching to munnar by 2 PM and is it safe to reach munnar by 8PM?
Also, wanted to know at thekkady , how much time will it take for Periyar wild life boat ride and visit spice plantation.

Based on your expert advise , I'll modify my plan.

Itinerary thinking as below:

Plan 1:
Sun: Reach cochin by 2PM and move to munnar -- reach there by 8 PM
Mon: Munnar
Tue: Munnar
Wed: Thekkady :Reach thereby 3 PM , do visit spice plantation
Thu : Morning wild life Boat ride and leave to Allepey ard 2-3 PM and reach by 5-6 PM
Fri: Backwater ride and surround, reach Cochin by 6 PM, stay at Cochin
Sat: Return

But, in this plan is it safe to reach Munnar by 8PM and I guess I will miss the scenic route to munnar.

Plan 2:

Sun: Reach cochin by 2PM and move to Allepey-- reach there by 5 PM , visit beach and rest
Mon: Backwater ride and after that leave for thekkady by 2 PM and reach by 6 PM
Tue: Do pariyar wild life boat safari , visit spice plantation and move for Munnar by 2-3 PM and reach munnar by 6-7 PM
Wed: Munnar
Thu : Munnar
Fri: Leave Munnar by 10 pm and on way to Cochin see waterfalls. Stay at Cochin
Sat: Return

Question:
1) Will it be possible to do the activities like pariyar wild life boat safari , visit spice plantation in span of 6-7 Hrs?
2) Will it be OK , if reach Munnar by 8 PM

Plan 3:

Sun: Reach cochin by 2PM and move to Allepey-- reach there by 5 PM , visit beach and rest
Mon: Backwater ride and after that leave for thekaddy by 2 PM and reach by 6 PM
Tue: Do pariyar wild life boat safari , visit spice plantation and stay at Thekkady.
Wed: Leave morning for Munnar and reach by 12pm
Thu : Munnar
Fri: Leave Munnar by 10 pm and on way to Cochin see waterfalls. Stay at Cochin
Sat: Return

Please suggest which plan is good.
I am with wife and 6 old kid.

As I m more worried about
1) Will it be possible to do the activities like pariyar wild life boat safari , visit spice plantation in span of 6-7 Hrs?
2) Will it be OK , if reach Munnar/Thekkady by 8 PM

Thanks in advance.

The Periyar boat ride is half a day affair. Keep in mind, more time spent waiting, walking to the boat waiting area, than the boat ride, which is if I recall correctly, 90 minutes.

Just give spice plantation a miss.

Munnar mountains are a bit treacherous in the dark, doubt travelling long after sunset is advisable or if the drivers would be ready for it.

How are you reaching cochin? If by flight, then Munnar is just about 3-4 hours from the airport. Takes longer if travel is by train.
In thekkady - do the martial arts show and if interested the traditional dance show as well.
As for the boat ride in Periyar - try and reach early to beat the crowd. Book tickets the day prior. If you stay on the KTDC property near the lake, it becomes very convenient.
For Allepey - prefer the half day house boat or canoe ride than a overnight stay.
Check out for elephant camps along the way if you have kids with you.

30 minutes should be good - was for us!
You should be able to reach Munnar that day itself, even if you consider 1 hr. Google says 3 hr 17 min to Munnar from airport, I would accept that +/- 30 minutes.
