Munnar to Periyar

by Jessichops Online Now Feb 19, 2010 at 10:18 AM

Can anyone tell me how easy it is to get from Munnar in the afternoon to travel to Periyar? Will it be by bus? If so how lng will this take?

If anyone has any recommendations for value for money guesthouses in both Munnar and Periyar (that also offer or can deal with day excursions) please reply with details. We will stay 2 nights in each.

After this we will then travel to Varkala from Periyar - is this a tricky journey to make? Any info on this will be gratefully received.

Tanks so much for any advice sent!

    Munnar to Periayar( or Kumily) is about108 kms one way. It takes about 2.5-3hrs by road: bus may take a bit longer depending on the stops en route.
    There are many guest houses while you walk from Kumily bus station to Thekkady(Periyar)which is about 4kms.It's easy to get some guest house.

    Kumily to Varkala is a long distance since you need to get down the mountain and come to sea level!!!Ofcourse there are buses available from Kumily but suggest you to check the bus timing with the bus depot in Kumily.

    Hope this helps.
