You’ll land at Cochin International Airport for your vacation in Kerala. Our representative will warmly receive you, and drive you to your first destination. The ride towards the hill station takes you through green landscapes that have mesmerizing sights. Nature is at its best in the hilly region, and the climate is pleasantly cool. All this makes it the apt location for a monsoon vacation. En route, stop at the Cheeyappara and Valara waterfalls to revive yourself and capture those moments. Sip in a cup of tea or coffee and spend time by the magnificent waterfalls. Then, head towards your resort. The rain and the mist together, add to the already refreshing mood of the mountain destination. Once you reach there, freshen up, and rest well.
Wake up to the music of birds chirping, and get ready for your hill station exploration. Have a scrumptious breakfast and head outdoors to enjoy the weather. You’ll be travelling through lush green landscapes covered with plantations. Begin your sightseeing at the Eravikulam National Park in Rajamalai, and take delight in watching the Nilgiri Tahr and the Neelakurinji. From there, you go to the Mattupetty Dam, where you can spot the wild animals coming to drink water and then at the Muthirampuzha River, it’s time for birdwatching. Surely, you wouldn’t want to miss out on seeing some exotic blooms, so head straight to Blossom Hydel Park. Finally, a trip to Munnar is incomplete without a visit to the Tata Tea Museum, so go there before returning to your resort. Sleep tight.
Have a hearty meal before proceeding towards your next destination. This monsoon vacation in Kerala will continue to delight you. Your drive to Thekkady is about 91 km from Munnar. After reaching your resort, unwind in the pristine location. Then, go explore this abode of wildlife. Visiting the Periyar National Park will be an experiential exploration of the wilderness. Also, go for a boat ride at Thekkady Lake, visit the Elephant camp for an Elephant ride through the Spice Garden, and experience the Martial Arts of Kerala, the Kalaripayattu (all these are optional at your own expense). Later, return to your hotel. Head outside for a stroll, and take delight in listening to the orchestra of the insects. Sleep soundly.
Enjoy your meal at the hotel and head towards the next destination. After a long drive, you reach the backwaters of Alleppey. You’ll be spending time in the houseboat floating through the backwaters. While you are in it, take in the peaceful vibe of being so close to the waterways. Taste mouthwatering Kerala traditional cuisine and have fun. The time spent here will be memorable and experiential. Cherish all the moments and sleep well.
As you close your monsoon vacation in Kerala, you will be overwhelmed, with unforgettable memories you have captured in your camera and your heart. Head to Cochin airport in time to board your flight back home. Have a pleasant journey ahead!
