About this trip?

Well, in my experience those trips which are not planned out but happens all of a sudden are the best there is and this was a trip like that...

Actually me and my friend Shalu went to visit our buddy Sreekuttan's house in Changanassery and after spending some time there, we had a thought... Trip to any awesome place nearby... fortunately for us we are in Changanassery where there is no dearth for good places to hang out...

So decided on going to Changanassery municipal park at first as a precursor to the main trip...went there...spent some time there...chit chats and all...checked out the places and its people...you know...;)...

Then off to Changanassery-Kavalam Route with Kavalam as our destination in mind... and one must say the route to Kavalam is nothing short of awesome...the roadways are ok-ok but for most part nice...you wouldn't probably mind it as the scenic beauty of the place is just breathtaking...

Clicked some pix and got to Kavalam...first time in my life I got into a Jhankar Boat Service used to ferry people and vehicles in lands connected by roadways and waterways...it is pretty cheap too...for two bikes and a fellow traveller the ticket costed about 12 rs. And the journey though short was nice...after that straight off to a.c road after the sunset ride through Pulinkunnu and the church in Pulinkunnu was also really good...on the whole a really nice scenic attraction wala trip tha woh...;)...pardon my faltu hindi...:D...anyways you get my drift right ;)...

We reached local toddy parlor where we had our fill of nice smashed tapioca + Kerala style toddy parlor special fried anchovies known locally as "podimeen" fry + Spicy beef roast to wind up the journey for an awesome trip...

We then returned back home with loads of happy memories as usual...

Gonna go for more...that's the thing about travel...every time i travel i end up wanting more and more...and m gonna get more and more...:D 

That's it guys...Cheers !

Changanacherry, a town in Kottayam district of Kerala is located between Kottayam and Thiruvalla townships. It is known as the gateway to the high ranges and the backwaters of Kuttanad. In the past, the region was known as Anchu Vilakkinta Pattanam, which in local language means ‘Town of five fire lamps.’ It once formed the northern boundary of the erstwhile princely state of Travancore.

Kavalam is a village in Kuttanadu, Kerala state, India. It is located on the borders of Alapuzha and Kottayam districts, on the banks of Vembanad Lake. The Pampa river flows through the village to merge into the famed Vembanad Lake. Its natural scenic beauty is legendary and has been used by many filmmakers. Relatively untouched by modernity, Kavalam is a green haven. Interspersed with the kayals (canals) and lakes, this belly of Kerala is serene. The lakes and kayals are filled with flocks of ducks, and in summer the rice paddies of Kuttanad turn golden. With a longtime history behind it, Kavalam is part of Kerala's cultural folklore. A decade back, this sleepy village was accessible only by the lake boats provided by the government of Kerala. As in many other remote parts of Kerala, this non-accessibility gave Kavalam a laidback atmosphere. The place is now accessible from Alleppey, Kottayam and Changanacherry by road. What makes Kavalam unique is its vast "watery junction" that joins five canals at one place unlike other road junctions — a rare sight indeed!

The municipal park situated opposite the famous St. Berchmans College, Changanassery is an ideal spot to spend some quality time with friends, family or with your loved one and have many provisions like childrens play area, boating which was discontinued awhile back and hope will resume soon and a icecream parlor alongside. All within the town itself.
