So it was ONAM day when I landed at Kochi. I didn't do much of sight seeing in Kochi but went to Athirapalli waterfall. This is the highest waterfall of Kerala. A pleasant 3 hour drive from Kochi. One of the best part about road trip in kerala is it takes you through dense forests on either side. Since it was end of monsoon, the waterfall was ferocious. Its the 'dudhsagar' of south. Do go downhill and experience the mist and the fall here. Local driver contact - Mr Arun (09744598900). Cool person and a great guide.
I traveled overnight from kochi to Nagercoil. It's a 6 hour journey by train. Reached Nagercoil early morning and visited the Suchindram temple. Took a local taxi and pushed to Kanyakumari. Local driver contact - Mr Ramesh (09487351356) Fantastic person. Take him.
We spent a day in Kanyakumari. Being the southernmost tip of India, this place has it's own importance. The 3 mighty oceans Indian ocean, Bay of Benagal and Arabian Sea meet here. We visited the kanyakumari devi temple, the Swami Vivekanand rock, Gandhi memorial and ended the day with the sunset view.
