HolidayIQ Reviewer Ravishanker Vasanthaiah adds, “Boat ride on Vembanad lake We are a family of three and hired a boat with chairs and dewans for 3 hours as suggested and paid Rs. 700 an hour. Felt expensive but being holiday season we had no choice and the place was crowded with tourists... I would suggest 2 hours would be fine to get the feel of it and enjoy the cruise.” Read Full Review

HolidayIQ Reviewer JOJI JOSEPH shares, “A nice picnic spot yet to be developed Starting from Thodupuzha we turned from Kandahar and after parking our car there we hired a jeep to reach the destination. The journey through the criss crossroad is really adventurous and the when we cover each hillock the view of the small villages and townships is something beyond explanation. If you are planning to visit the place make sure to carry enough water and other eatables and also to avoid going to the edge of the rocks which are bit dangerous.” Read Full Review
