      Kovalam to Periyar?

      by Jessichops Online Now Feb 18, 2010 at 6:11 AM

      Hi there,

      My boyfriend and I are planning to travel from Kovalam to Periyar Lake / National Park and can't find any info on whether this is easy to do!

      Can anyone tell me the best way to do this? Method of transport / time it takes (roughly) / cost if known? We are not against hiring a driver, but would still like an idea of length of time and cost for this option.

      We will spend one night in Kovalam, then 3 nights at Periyar, then will need to return to Kovalam for 2 nights to meet a friend. Therefore this journey is not just one way - so if there is any difference between the 2 (Kov - Per / Per - Kov) please can you supply info for both if possible.

      Thanks in advance :D

      Hullo, Just a quick question we are going in around new years time, will it be a problem to book a boat for the lake, especially an early one?
      what do you recommend.
      did you stay at the periyar house? any comments?

      Hello Everybody,

      Good Day.

      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. :)


      Pleasant times,

      Ta Taah
