We had a good well maintained SUV for the entire trip. It was arranged by Mr. Santhi Lal of Prasanthy holidays. The road in Kerala was good but the moment your cross over to Tamil Nadu the conditions are really bad.

Enroute do visit Poovar Island, Padmanabhapuram Palace, Thuckalay, Suchindaram Temple. In Suchindaram, men should be bare waist-up and women should be traditionally dressed to enter the temple premises. Devotees are not allowed to carry anything inside the temple except wallets.

It was an awesome and different trip with my family in my own car to Kanyakumari. The traditional food on both the ways were really good. We visited lot of temples and nearby tourist locations on the way. Padmanabhapuram palace is worth visiting which is on the way to Kanyakumari.

I started the trip in a different route than the usual one. Something away from the busy NH but when compared to the traffic and the scenic beauty we got it was good. I started from Trivandrum then went to Peyad Kattakada Road from Kattakada took a deviation to Kattakada Kaliyal Road and the road was superb. With extravaganza of natural scenic beauty on the way you can see the Chittar Dam Reservoir. The scenic beauty was incomparable and there is a good resort near that Anantya Resorts. I didnít expect such a good resort on this road away from the city. Then we reached Kulasekharam from Kulasekharam to Thakkaley Road and on the way we got down at Pathmanabhapuram Palace. After that we headed on to Kanyakumari and we had a nice day there.

The bus journey was overall good. These are the government buses of Karnataka State Road Transport Corporation (KSRTC). The conductor helped us with the local language and unlike other government buses, these buses were perfectly on time. This was the feature I liked most about them. Regarding comfort, these are average buses with good comfortable seating but not luxurious.

As you will be travelling near coastal areas, it is always preferred that you book AC car to travel. To reach Kanyakumari, from Thiruvananthapuram the road is not good and since you are travelling to a different state, you need to carry you ID proof and your driver should have permit to reach this place. The road until the end of Kerala is good and you will get Tender coconuts to get your energy back in the road sides. If your driver is a native then the rate is negotiable. If not then it is fixed for you. However, drivers are very cooperative and good.

Standing at the starting point of India and experiencing the thrill is what I wanted when I planned to visit Kanyakumari. While I visited the Hotel, the welcome was very pleasing, as they welcomed us with a welcome drink. Experiencing the hot weather of the coastal side is difficult but this...more »
