Dear All,

I need your help in finding the correct details for my trip.

I will be arriving in Kottayam on 3rd Januray 2012 from banglore express which arrives in kottayam at about 16:30 Hrs; from there I need to go to MUNNAR without taking a break.

Is it possible to go on the same day because it looks that MUNNAR is about 140KM from kottayam which will take at least 4 hrs in any case; it means that we will reach there at about 21:00Hrs will it be OK??

Then next day we will do sight seeing in Munnar and then on 5th January afternoon we will proceed for Thekkady.

We will do sight seeing on Thekkady on 5th evening and 6th Jan morning.

On 6th January itself we will proceed for MADURAI in afternoon and stay in NIGHT at MADURAI.

From MADURAI next day morning we need to go to airport to catch the return flight for Delhi.

I need to hire a TAXI (Innova/XYLO) for all above itinerary, can some body help me in this?

We are two families involving 2 ladies and 2 kids (about 4 yrs).

Regards,
Pankaj Jain.

It is fine, though Kottayam, Thekkady, Munnar, Madurai is a more efficient route. Innova is by far the superior vehicle.

Hello Pankaj,

Doesnt have much suggestions as this plan is good...but i suggest to get down at ernakulam (cochin) and move to munnar. kottayam is after ernakulam and takes nearly 90 to 120 mts to reach kottayam..by this time you can easily cover more than 50% distance towards munnar...

Even I suggest you get down at Ernakulam and go to Munnar. Its closer and faster.

If you really wanna start from Kottayam, you may consider Kottayam-Thekkady-Munnar-Maduarai. Its in line.

Thanks and more info needed

Dear ALL,

I am travelling to KOTTAYAM from kanyakumari thru Banglore Express and in that sense KOTTAYAM comes first and then Ernakulum and as per google maps distance to MUNNAR from KOTTAYAM and Cochin is 140 and 126 KMs respectively. Whereas train takes at least one hour 30 minutes in reaching to cochin after kottayam; my idea was to save time.

For some reason I have to go to MUNNAR first and then THEKKADY.

Can you please suggest some reasonably priced TAXI service which I can hire from KOTTAYAM till my trips ends in MADURAI.

Regards,
Pankaj Jain.

Hello Pankaj,

I too plan for a Kottayam to Munnar trip in the second week of October. It would be great if you could share your experience on your travel from Kottayam to Munnar (Mode of transport and cost etc).

Thanks & Regards
Thomas.
