I will be travelling from Pune by train & the tour includes the travelling days also. I cant extend it more so can u please help me by suggesting few important places to see. It will be a great favour if you plan a itinerary for me. Thanks!

Try getting a houseboat from either Kumarakom or Alleppy. An individual houseboat can be rented in 24 hour and 12 hour blocks. Rates differ according to the season and duration.
Boating in Akkalum tourist village in Veli (Near Trivandrum) as well as in Kochi Harbour, Kallai River of Kozhikode, Malampuzha Reservoir in Palakkad, Periyar Tiger Reserve in Thekkady, Neyyar Dam (Adventure because of its crocodile infested area) in Trivandrum, Thenmala Eco-Village in Kollam and Astamudi Lake in Kollam; offers some good sightings in these areas as well as offers a good pleasure trip worth for an experience
Try using village canoe yourself in Canals of Kuttanad, Pathiramanal island, Changaserry, over Nila river in Ottapalam in Palakkad, Kallayi river in Kozhikode and Periyar river in Aluva. Its surely going to make you try again and again.
Speed cruise in Akkulam Tourist Village in Trivandrum as well as Sasthamkotta Lake in Kollam or Kochi backwaters is a good choice. Akkulam has a wide range of speed cruise from Jet ski to Water Scooters and Speed Boats as well as Banana Boats.
If you love adventure, try boarding any Fishing vessel, for a trip to High seas. Its something really adventurous. For more extreme adventurous person, a trip using traditional Fishing boat, is more thrilling due to use of narrow body boats without any machines, used by fishermen in coastal areas. You can experience the thrills of High seas.
Kerala Shipping Corporation has introduced Kochi Cruise, that have 2 type of cruises covering both Kochi Harbour Backwaters and nearby High seas. The evening cruise is the most interesting, due to the experience of cruising while at sunset and sightings of several dolphins in the Kochi Highseas.

Due to its unique geography, Kerala gets rain for at least 7-8 months of the year and the forests are classified as rainforests. There are many opportunities to trek, camp and see wildlife.

Backwaters of Kerala are a maze of lagoons criss-crossed with rivers, shallow pools and canals, all separated from the sea by a narrow strip of sand banks. Backwaters are present throughout the state but Alappuzha and Kottayam are most notable in this regard.
The annual Vallam Kali boat races take place in the backwaters. The boats are large wooden canoes that can accommodate 60 to 100 rowers. The most famous race is for the Nehru Trophy Vallam Kalli, held on the second Saturday of August as a tribute to the former Indian Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru who had a keen interest in this sport.

The Blue Mountains of the Western Ghats, popularly known as Nilgiris, are close to Trivandrum and there are numerous hill stations in thise area. The most popular is Munnar, the honeymoon capital of the state. The highest peak of the Western Ghats is located at Anamudi (2,695 metres) and is good for trekking. The area is also home to several sanctuaries and forest reserve areas.
There are more than two dozen waterfalls, both large and small, with numerous rapids and springs. The largest fallwaters are at Athirampally, where three milky waterfalls fall at great speed.

The world famous Kovalam beach, well known for fun and frolic
Kerala has 650 km of coastline and numerous beaches. Some of the more notable are:
Kovalam Beach near Trivandrum has a good bathing area, clean environment and plenty of accommodation. This was a centre of Hippy counter-culture in sixties, and is today well known for hedonistic beach parties.
Varkala Beach in Thiruvananthapuram district - A long cliff makes the beach more natural (no restaurant behind you). It is long beach with natural springs from the cliff.

The Palaces at Sree Padmanabhapuram located 30 km from Trivandrum are the largest Palaces ever constructed from wood and granite in India. This was the Royal Headquarters of Travancore until early 20th century.

House Boat Trip 2009 Center Hill Lake


Lyn Grotke September 26, 2010 at 1:42 pm

So my family all are beach lovers – we have visitied quite a few beahces this summer. these are some of my favorites and the reason we liked them. Mt. Vernon Town Beach – grassy beach area on lake next to recreation center which frequently has fun things to join in with. Provides outhouse, picnic tables, benches, sand box, toys. One door down from Mt. Vernon Country Store – great for ice cream or popsicles. Has L shaped dock to jump off and define shallower area. Has two floats anchored farther out. Great for all ages from infants to adults. All free. Birch Point State Park – Rockland Maine – Great sand beach in sheltered cove. Large gradually sloping shallow swim area with little surf. Spectacular scenery. Has changing rooms and toilets. Charges day fee. I reccommend a state park pass and passport. Passport is fun. Any state park you visit has a page and you get them stamped. Close drive to Owl’s Head Light which is fun to visit and has a spectacular picnic area. Reid State Park – We always run into friends at this ocean beach. It is spectacular visually. We always walk on the ocean side and swim on the lagoon side. Water in the lagoon is warm and still. The beach is guarded. There is a day use fee – again get a park pass and a passport. They have showers, changing rooms and toilets. Town of Rangeley Recreation Beach – Nice scenery, large dock with low spring board to dive or jump from, playground and picnic area with grills. This one is free. There are guards on duty but my observation is that they are not well supervised and the guards mostly socialize with local teens and do not guard. Watch your kids. Webb Beach in Mt. Blue State Park in Weld – Again day use fee, but avoid this and get a park pass witha passport. Beautiful sand beach on Webb Lake. Large roped in guarded shallow swim area with sandy bottom. Right next spectacular nature center with hands on multisensory Maine nature related exhibits. Nature Center has limited hours. There is an ampitheater with a broad menu of programs. for some reason the program schedule is not on the website so I guess you have to contact the park directly. You can join a Saturday gold panning trip which my kids enjoyed alot. You can drive overr to the other side of the lake and go an a short easy interpreted nature trail with spectacular views even just from the parking lot on Center Hill. This parking lot is a great place to berry pick. More good blue berry picking by the scenic overlook on rte 156 in July. Bring a picnic, pick berries, hike Center Hill, go for a swim to cool off, go gold panning in the Swift River, go home = great day!! If it is open the Weld Historical Society Museum on rte 156 is also great. So long post but I hope people share our family’s enthusiasm.
