7 Nights / 8 Days

The busy harbor town of Fort Cochi to hill station waterfalls and lakes, boat rides at Periyar Wildlife Sanctuary, houseboat cruising through the Backwaters of Alleppey, lounging on the banks of Lake Vembanad in Kumarakom, kicking back the sand on the beaches of Kovalam - a wonderfully wet tour of Kerala.

Itinerary Route: Cochin - Periyar - Kumarakom - Alleppey Backwaters - Kovalam - Trivandrum

Day 1: Cochin Arrival

You will be met in Cochin by a Tour Packages India Representative who will escort you to your hotel. Spend the day seeing the sights which may include a visit to the Dutch Palace, Jewish Synagogue, St. Francis Church, Santa Cruz Basilica or a boat tour of the harbor islands. See "Local Attractions" for a comprehensive list of things to do. In the evening enjoy a Kathakali dance show after dinner.

Day 2: Cochin to Periyar (4 Hour Drive)

After checkout, enjoy a wonderfully scenic drive through the countryside of the Cardamom Hills en route to Periyar. Check into your hotel where you'll spend the next two nights.

Visit the Periyar Wildlife Sanctuary and Tiger Reserve. Spend the evening exploring nearby Kumily where every spice grown in Kerala is sold - you'll know you've arrived by the aromatic atmosphere.

Day 4: Periyar to Kumarakom on the Backwaters (4 Hour Drive)

Descend to the backwaters of Kumarkom - the Rice Bowl of Kerala. Kumarkom rests along the shores of Lake Vembanad, the largest freshwater lake in Kerala.
