DAY 1 (29 th April): DAY AT MUNNAR
On the first day, the guests were picked up from the Kochi International Airport and were taken to Munnar in my Toyota Etios car.
At Munnar, the guests stayed at the Rivulet Resort, near Pallivassal Power House, Chithirapuram, Munnar. The guests checked in and freshened themselves up.
After this, we went on to visit the Spice Plantation, then to see the nearby Waterfalls. Owning to the peak summer season, the water at the falls was comparatively less.
By the end of the day, we went to the Munnar Tea Museum as well as a Tea Plantation, to have a tea experience. At the museum, the tea history could be seen and at the plantation the process of tea making was viewed. The guests also had a taste of the special Munnar tea.
From here I took them back to the resort for their night sleep.
DAY 2 (30 th April): MUNNAR – THEKKADY
After having breakfast, the guests were taken to the Periyar Wildlife Santuary. Here along with the wildlife, the guests also had a boating experience.
After this the guests were treated with a Kathakali and Martial Arts performance at Kadathanadu.
They were then taken to the Forest Canopy resort
DAY 3 (1 st May): THEKKADY – ALAPPUZHA
In the morning on the request of the guests, they were taken to Elephant Junction at Thekkady for an elephant ride. They were really mesmerized and they also had lots of fun.
From here they were taken to the backwater paradise of Kerala, Alleppy/Alappuzha. Here they enjoyed a calm and relaxing cruise and stay in the Waveshore Houseboat.
DAY 4 (2 nd May): FORT KOCHI - KOCHI
In the morning, we left off to Fort Kochi. Once there the guests explored the olden Kochi and visited many attractions here like the Bolgatty Palace, Indo-Portuguese Museum, Chinese Fishing Nets, Koder House, Dutch Cemetery and many more. They also enjoyed traditional and authentic Kerala meals at Fort Kochi.
The guests were also taken to the Kerala Folklore Museum at Thevara, where they came across various artifacts related to folk arts and dances. From here they were taken to Poothotta Backwaters, where they yet again enjoyed a boating trip.
By the evening they were taken to the Chottanikara Temple, where the guests had a peaceful darshan.
The guests were then dropped off at Kochi International Airport from there they left off to Hyderabad, with heart full of fond memories of God’s Own Country.
This will be very useful for those who are planning to visit Kerala for three or four days
