Next day, The Last stop of our trip to Kerala was not in fact in Kerala, It was in Tamil Nadu. Kanyakumari, Old Timer's choice in our Squad, was squeezed in our Kerala Mission. We reached Kanyakumari by noon, but could not visit the Temple As it was Dashami and it is suppose to be closed at Dashamis. So, took a break that afternoon and visited the locales and sun set points.....! The next day was the day for our train back home, so woke up real early, saw sunrise and the Kumari Temple and Vivekanana Rock all in rush. Thus we concluded our Trip.
Pointers For Travellers:
- Stay as long as you can in Munnar, its totally magical and worth it.
- Try to Complete Thekkedy in One Single Day(We later realized). Besides the Periyar Tiger Reserve, there are nothing much to do there for 2 days, unless you have a bucket full of money to spend on Jungle Safaris, Tent Watching and Mountain Climbing.
- Complete Thekkedy in a single day and move on to Kovalam for two days..! Thats what we Failed To do, so Ended up not utilizing all the serene beaches of Kovalam as we wasted a day In Thekkedy.
Don't include Kanyakumari in Kerala Trip, its a total waste of time. The place is very dirty. a total opposite of Kerala.
On our return journey, The Train From Chennai to Howrah got delayed by 6Hours, so took a blitzkrieg City Tour of Chennai, which included Chepauk Stadium, Marina Beach.
Hope This Was Helpful To Fellow Travelers...!
