Am going to Kerala in January for 3 weeks. Want to go to wildlife sanctuary with possibility of seeing elephants. I know about Periyar-is this the best option for me and where is a good place to stay in the area. Flying in to Cochin and travelling down coast to Trivandrum and then looping back up again and will be finishing off by staying at Dewalokam, at Karimannoor for 4 nights (this is the only place I have booked so far). BTW it will be 3 women ranging in age from mid twenties to 50 (2 of us are vegan) just in case any of this influences any thoughts you might have.
Grateful for any thoughts about anything to do with this trip.
hi, depends when you would like to visit kerala.there are a whole lot of activities to do here in kerala.if you plan to start the trip from cochin,u could first stay at fortcochin(port city) for a day or two and then move towards munnar(hill station) for a day or two.proceed towards thekkady for wildlife activities like trekking,safaries etc,bamboo rafting is an another highlight in this area.from thekkady you could move towards kumarakom and hire a houseboat(kettuvallam's) for a day.after checkout on the next day,move towards allapey from kumarakom(venice of kerala).proceed from alappey to trivandrum(kovalam beach)spent a few days exploring the capital city recently famous for the treasure worth billions found from the age old padmanabha swami temple.you clould proceed bck to your country from ther trivandrum intl airport. hope this would give you an idea about the travell in kerala.any help feel fre to contact me. would be glad to help.
Kerela is really beautiful place and too many places to see there like house boat ,wlidlife sunctuary and many more . So just choose according to your time and choice.
Kerala itself a 'God's own Country' includes tremendous places that could be visited.
These include beaches of Kovalam and Varkala, wildlife and bird sanctuaries.
The major cities are:
Thiruvananthapuram, Kochi and Kozhikode
You can never comlete your tour of Kerala without experiencing the kerala backwaters
So, go for it!!!!
