Good roads in Kanyakumari dist, but on the way Nagercoil junction very difficult. All items are available on the way ie, Trivandrum to Kanyakumari. I don't know that the points to visit during the journey so some places are missed. No proper road signs on the way.

It was a memorable journey for us. It was a pleasure trip. The railway station was good. The climate was good when we visited. The toilets were clean. The travellers were friendly. The food were good. Kanyakumari is a calm and quiet place which is good for relaxing.

Awesome journey and nice get together with friends. Roads are not comfortable. Congested routes but nice and memorable journey. Scenic beauty of small mountains and rocks.

A wonderful experience, a different route to Kanyakumari. We planned our travel the full day so that we can cover all these areas and reach Kanyakumari by the time of sunset. I started from Trivandrum by 7 Am and reach Chitharal (Jain temple). This is a temple situated at hilly place north to Marthandam (7 KM from Mathandam). It will take almost 1 to 1. 5 hours to complete the visit. Make sure that enough drinking water and snaks with you since it is a remote place and only few shops are available and you may not get anything to your taste. Thereafter proceed to Padmanabhapuram palace. One of the beautiful palace to visit and must spend some time there to see around. You can reach udayagiri fort directly from palace without entering into NH 47. Proceed to Maruthwamala (Marunthuvazh Malai), That too a hilly place, higher and difficult place compared to Chitharal, but worth spending some time climbing up. There after you can plan vattakkottai fort. It is advised to reach Vattakkottai bu 4 ~4. 30 Pm. Another charming place. Make sure you reach Kanyakumari before sunset.

Note: You can visit Mathoot Thottippalam, Chittar-2, Tripparappu and Keeripparai (Make sure Keeripparai opened before you attempt for and not suitable for family but a stunning destination ever I have visited - be aware of dangers in waterfalls, advised to visit with a local person who knows the place). But it needs two days for a comfort travel.

Map for your reference (Use familiar navigation if possible).
