I am a Software Engineer from Bombay; shall be flying tomorrow (28 Oct 2005) morning to Coimbatore.
This shall be my first trip to Kerala. I hope to be able to visit a few places (in around 4 days) before I reach my destination: a village in Vandazy (Palghat/Palakkad).
The places I have been contemplating so far are Munnar-Kollukumalai, Thekkady-Periyar and Aleppey (Alppuzha). (This is a very flexible list.)
As it has turned out, this shall be an extemporary jaunt; so I haven't planned much. Basically, I'll reach Coimbatore tomorrow and need to chart my way therefrom.
I am aware, this is little bit at the eleventh hour but I shall be hopeful of any suggestions (best mode of transport, places to visit etc. ) on the itinerary. If there is any traveller/resident, who is in the same neck of the woods, it might be a good idea to touch base. :)
