Also, as to how much would be total spent in this trip...provided I would be preferring a medium (deluxe) holiday home for staying. I have already booked train tickets to/fro from Bangalore to Ernakulam.
Please suggest..this is how I have planned as of now..
day 1 - reach Ernakukalam in the morning. Tour Cochin..Overnight stay there.
day 2 - move to Alleppey stay there for a day...overnight stay in houseboat.
day 3 - move to Munnar
day 4 - Munnar sight seeing.
