7 days Fascinating Kerala
Itinerary (Cochin - Periyar - Kumarakom - Kovalam - Trivandrum)



Private tour: Daily departure from Cochin

Day  1
ARRIVE COCHIN (-/-/-)
Met upon arrival and after assistance at the airport transfer to your Hotel. Arrive in Cochin and check-in at your Hotel.

at your Hotel. KOCHI: (pop. 686,000), once visited by King Solomon and the intended destination of Columbus, is called the Queen of the Arabian Sea. Its beautiful lagoons, lakes and greenery offer a lovely setting for a stay of three nights. Long famed in the history books, Kochi (formerly known as Cochin) is also home to Jews who settled here more than 2,500 years ago. The first European colony in Kochi was founded by the Portuguese in the 16th century, and their influence can still be detected. The Dutch and, eventually, the British followed them—the cosmopolitan mix of cultures makes the city fascinating. Try to find the tombstone marking the original burial place of Vasco da Gama (his remains were later sent to Portugal) at St. Francis Church, and visit some of the city's other churches, temples and mosques.

Overnight at Hotel.

While driving along the coastline, at the Harbor’s mouth, one can also view the unique and still-in-use "Chinese Fishing Nets" which were introduced by the Chinese traders in the 14th Century. The tour ends in the Fort Kochi area where you can walk through the historical Dutch and Portuguese buildings. Some parts of this nearly 500-year-old Fort are still amazingly well preserved.

COCHIN-PERIYAR. 185 KMS-5 HRS (Breakfast/Lunch/Diner)
Morning after breakfast drive along the tranquil countryside to Periyar – one of the largest wildlife sanctuaries in India. The sanctuary is centered on a large artificial lake, formed by the dam across the Periyar River. Periyar Tiger Reserve—in the southwestern state of Kerala, this is the best elephant sanctuary in India, despite its name, although it does have tigers, as well as monkeys, wild boar and sambals. Walking tours are offered, but the best way to see the reserve is to take a boat ride on the manmade lake, which is surrounded by the wildlife areas. The park should be visited October-May. On arrival check in at your Hotel. Rest of the day at leisure.
Dinner and overnight at Hotel.

Large flotillas of ducks waddling down to the water from thatched houses on the banks. As we travel through the backwaters we pass through rural settlements sited on narrow strips of land between waterways. The backwaters are a hive of activity with village life all along the banks, boat men taking goods and materials from one village to the next, children swimming, women washing clothes, and fishermen in traditional wooden boats.

The best beach in the area—and by far the most popular with tourists—is Kovalam, which lies a few miles southeast of Thiruvananthapuram. The sand, lined with palm trees, seems to stretch forever. Almost all the hotels here offer excellent Ayurvedic Spa Treatments & massages. Kerala's beaches are excellent for watching the local fishing technique: low-slung dugout canoes are controlled by tug-o-war teams holding ropes on the beach.
