Then I decided to pull off this one, texted for hours in the group but in the end the participant count went down to 5. Then we made the reservations with a timeline "Kerala within 48 hours". This time I decided to experience zoomcar india and made the reservations. Had an issue at the pickup time but after an hour and a half the car was allocated manually and I got an extension in timing and kms with fuel and taxes. With a safe speed limit at 80 kmph just grab your favorite model at ease in your nearest zoomcar station. Available at all airport stations. Instead of grabbing a taxi I really prefer this one. Get a flat 20 % off on oyo bookings.
After a 3 hour drive we arrived Cochin. Then we drove along backwaters and harbour. Cochin purely depends on backwaters can't even imagine how they struggled and survived the 2018 floods. Fishing with ancient chinese nets seems to be their livelihood. Then via ferry we reached Fort kochi.
We reached the famous Santa Cruz Cathedral Basilica at Fort Kochi. A 514 year old church originally build by Portuguese. It's one of the eight basilicas in Kerala. Had a lot of great architect. The interior is designed with portraits of Christ.
Then we grabbed a milkshake and roamed the streets searching arts. Street arts is an unique craft work found along fort kochi and it isn't illegal. Graffiti is forbidden at some places along fort kochi. I guess this is everyone's dream instagram post.
Finally we drove to one of the most iconic spot of kerala - Athirapally falls. Situated in chalakudy district this 80ft tall waterfall ranks 1 st in most visited locations in kerala. It will flow from its peak during monsoon.
And finally realising we only had 5 hours left to deliver the car. We drove all the way to Coimbatore. On the way I was added again in another group "Wayanad ?" lets hope we could pull off this one too.
