Detailed Itinerary

Day 1

Journey Cochin To Munnar

We meet you at the airport or at around 11:00 am. Lunch on your own at a local restaurant. We start our journey to Munnar. The lush mountains and the breath-taking scenery will captivate you as we drive by some beautiful mountain roads. On the way, we stop by a few waterfalls such as Cheeyappara for some pictures. We will also pass by a few other waterfalls such as Valara and Attukad. We check in to our hotel and relax in the evening and play some team games to get to know our new friends! Meal Inclusion – Breakfast
Day 2

A day By The Blue Hills And Mountain Air – Munnar

After breakfast, we step out to the mountains and go to the Rajamala Eravikulum National Park (In case of heavy rainfall, the visit to the park will be closed). The park has the famous Nilgiri Tahr, an endangered species found in Kerala and Tamil Nadu. Next stop is Top Point, which is the highest point in Munnar and home to Neelakurinji flowers that bloom once in 12 years. Then we go to Old Munnar Town and visit the town market for some shopping. Different varieties of spices, tea and homemade chocolates are our recommendations. You can also visit some handicraft shops and checkout some souvenir items for your loved ones. Lunch on your own at a standard local restaurant. Then we explore the sprawling tea plantations and visit the Tea Museum at Kannan Devan Hills. Next we go to Mattupetty dam for some boating. We get back to hotel and take some rest in the evening. Meal Inclusion – Breakfast
Day 3

Float In A House Boat At Kumarakom Backwaters

After breakfast, we checkout from hotel and start our voyage to Kumarakom, the land of meandering lagoons and backwaters. We step out for yet another scenic drive today from the high ranges of Munnar to the lullabies of Kumarakom. Yes, the allure of these waters bring humans and birds together from across the world to Kerala’s most famous attraction – its backwaters. If you are keen to pick a local ‘Uruli’ (local urn), you can stop by a shop on the way to Kumarakom. Get ready for an unforgettable experience as we step in to our very own house boat for the first time! On our last visit, we were greeted by a flock of migratory birds while our boat hunkered down. Perhaps the birds heard our excitement! Enjoy the different shades of greens, the monsoon rains, the occasional small fishes that swim by the boat or sit back and watch local lads showing off their swimming skills. Life in Kumarakom is simple. The small canoes slither on the sine curves of these waters. Some of these canoes transport daily goods, some are used for fishing and others head out to town may be for a movie date. Retire for the day listening to the symphony of Mother Nature, the crickets, frogs and night birds singing the chorus and the waves gently rocking everyone to sleep! Meal Inclusion – Breakfast / Lunch / Dinner
Day 4

Kumarakom To Alappuzha Via Marari Beach

After breakfast, we check out of our house boat and move to the Alappuzha, otherwise called the Venice of the east. The town is famous for its coir products. We stop at the wholesale lanes of the market for some shopping. You will find coir artifacts of all imaginable sizes and shapes at wholesale rates here. Lunch on your own at a local restaurant. We check in to our resort by afternoon. Rest of the day on your own to laze around the beach. Marari is a quaint beach in the old harbour city. Tourists have not yet started flocking in this beach unlike her more famous cousins in Kerala. The beach is perfect to immerse yourself in a book, through your legs up and sip away a few tender coconuts (which are much tastier here. Ask for the orange ones!). Meal Inclusion – Breakfast
Day 5

Alappuzha To Kochi For Athachamayam Festival

After breakfast, we checkout from our resort for a quick tour of Fort Cochin. Later, we spend some time through the spice lanes and move to MG Road for Onam shopping. Cloth shops will be very crowded today, but we will stop in one of the famous shops in case anyone wants to buy Kerala Saris. Other things to buy could include the different varieties of banana chips (look out for the sweetened ones called ‘sarkara varatti’), spice mixes (Kerala fish curry powder is a hot-hot one), fresh raw spices and the herbal mixes that locals use for drinking. Lunch on your own at a local restaurant. Afternoon we move to the nearby town of Thrippunithura, which was the capital of Cochin Kingdom. Athachamayam is a famous festival with ten days of Onam celebrations. Here we get to see some of the traditional folk dances of Kerala along with the traditional Chenda Melam (traditional drum percussions). We get back to the hotel by evening. Rest of the evening on your own. Meal Inclusion – Breakfast Overnight at Hotel
Day 6

Kochi Sightseeings

Today is Thiruvonam and the culmination of 10 days of Onam rituals. The floral carpets would be the biggest today since the kids and elders would have spent several hours the previous night to decorate their courtyards. Mostly kids are entrusted with the job of picking flowers. They pluck the flowers it from their own yards and sometimes steel from the neighbours too (we all have done that, isn't it?). There is also some kind of a competition to pick the best flowers and to create the best Pookkalam (floral Rangoli), which you will see everywhere in offices and malls and even stadiums. On a typical Onam day, you wake up either salivating at the thought of afternoon Sadhya or worrying about serving everyone perfectly on the big day. Most of the Malayalis, men, women and kids spend their time in the kitchen in the mornings, helping each other to prepare the feast. We start our day a bit relaxed. For those of you who are interested in wearing the traditional sari, we will try to get some on rent. Just carry your blouses (any colour will do) and other accompaniments. We can then step out and just partake in the festivities looking like 100% Mallus (red round bindi on forehead and jasmine flowers in hair – you get the picture!) and come back in time for the feast. Onam feast is a fully vegetarian affair, mostly served in Satvik way. Perhaps the strong Ayurvedic traditions of Kerala are reflected in the way the different dishes are served. Some specialties you won’t find anywhere else are erusseri, olan, and pradhaman. There would definitely be an overload of coconuts and calories but just forget that and enjoy! We change back to more 'civilian’ clothes after the feast and check out to reach the Cochin Airport. Unfortunately, it is time to say adios to Mahabali and his subjects. The tour closes at Cochin Airport. Please book your return flights after 7:00 pm.
