What is the best way to get to the Periyar nature reserve from Trivandrum (or Kovalam)time it takes and approx cost. If it is too far to make a day trip can anyone recommend a decent mid-price hotel nearby. Many thanks.

    Few years ago , i went to Periyar National PArk. we stayed at Thekaddy . my taxi driver took us from Trivandrum (Kavalom) to Thekaddy - it seemed to take whole day. then we went to cochin. I dont have the fare as we hired him for few days. Althogh the mileage is not great, it does take a while as its hilly and roads are not all that great. I have the contact for the driver if you need it.

    YES..it is too far to make as a day trip.

    The hotels inside the resere forst are expensive.Just stay outside .There are plenty of hotel for you to choose from to cater to your budget.
