Chalakudy a delight for first timers

Chalakudy is a small town some 20 kms away from Cochin and the airport. It's a beautiful small place and the places to visit include the Kauthuka Park, this is a must, in food don't miss the fish and prawns. All in all it's a nice place to visit for 2 -3 days. The Chalakudy River is the third largest in Kerala and is a beautiful sight.

Experience to be close with nature

It was pleasure to be with the nature. Having bath in cold water during the day was excellent. Here the nature is complete beauty. Bathing near to waterfalls is not advisable and dangerous. Having bath in low depth areas far from the waterfalls is enjoyable.
