Kanyakumari, one of the city which is surely in the bucket-list of every traveller. India concludes its boundaries here, and a confluence of two seas namely the Arabian Sea and the Bay of Bengal along with an Indian Ocean meets from all directions making Kanyakumari one of the most wonderful and amazing city.
One Day trip to Kanyakumari from Trivandrum
We stayed in Trivandrum for our visit to this southernmost tip of India, Kanyakumari. It was a two and half hour drive consisting of narrow roads, crossing border, and hopping cities.
We reached Kanyakumari at around 11:00 in the morning. As soon as we reached, we hopped to a place from where we can take the look at the two popular tourist destinations to visit in Kanyakumari, Vivekananda Rock Memorial and the Thiruvalluvar Statue.
We reached the point from where we had to catch ferrys to visit the memorials. We bought the regular ferry ticket costing Rs 50 per person which take people from shore to Vivekananda Rock Memorial, from there to Thiruvalluvar Statue and then back to the shore. We stood in the queue to catch the next ferry for approximately an hour but if you are short of time, you can either come early like around 7:30 am or can buy the special ticket costing around Rs 200 per person to and fro.
