You will be picked up from the airport by our executive. You can start with the city tour after checking in and freshening up at the hotel. Cochin is one city with a visible influence of Dutch, Portuguese and the British. The many palaces build by them have now been converted into museums with artifacts that speak of that era. The Paradesi Synagogue build by the Spanish speaking Jews is a must visit. Also watch the fisherman operating the Chinese Fishing Nets, which is something unique to Kochi.
Visit the Mangalavanam Bird Sanctuary next. It is a lush green space with a wide variety of flora and fauna. The Kerala Folklore museum helps you learn more about the culture and heritage of God’s Own Country. Its architecture, too, is interesting, incorporating the traditional styles of Malabar, Cochin and Travancore provinces. The Santa Cruz Cathedral Basilica and St Francis Church too, are popular places for their architecture.
What is iconic about Athirappally is undoubtedly the waterfall, known by the name of Athirappally Waterfalls, situated at a height of 1000 ft above the sea level. It is a breathtaking sight to behold and has been featured in many movies. You can visit the waterfall and soak in nature’s beauty at its best here. Athirappally comprises dense forests and streams, providing you options for some trekking. If you are lucky enough, you’ll also be able to spot the endangered Hornbill here. There are many other waterfalls too, in and around Athirappally.
From Athirappally, after a drive of about 4 hours, you reach Munnar, one of the most popular hill stations of South India. Munnar is full of green tea plantations, hills that touch the sky and deep valleys. After freshening up, start your Munnar tour on an adventurous note by indulging in some trekking. Places like Meesapulimala, Echo point, Top Station are all perfect for trekking with mesmerising views on the way and at the peak. If you love to be amidst wildlife, visit the Eravikulam National Park.
One of the most common sights of Munnar is its tea plantations. Visit the Tata Tea Plantation to see for yourself the plucking, processing and packing of tea leaves. You can also take a stroll through the plantations.
After breakfast, set out for a day that is going to be more laid back and relaxing. Head to Mattuppetty Dam to catch a beautiful view of Munnar and also drop by at the dairy farm nearby.
