Hello,

Direct buses are available to cochin to thekkady. (atmost 1 bus/hour).i hope there is no ksrtc bus after 9pm.i personaly recommending take private bus from ernakulam. You can get bus from "south railway station " .

Your route is

Ernakulam-perumbavoor-kothamangalam-idukki-kattappana-kumily-thekkady

Hi Sarankumar,

Does the private bus to thekkady still start from "south railway station " or has it changed to the Vytilla mobility hub?

Thanks!

Hello sir,

Dont goto that way.you must choose south railway station or " ksrtc aluva(aluwaye) bustand" .Which one is nearer to you select that one.remember this thing.

1.if you are coming in day time you can choose anyone.if it night you should choose south railway station(must).

2.infront of the south railway station,you get the private buses to thekkady.i have already mentioned the route.

3.if you are selecting aluwaye,only KSTRC buses are available.so you should goto ksrtc bus stand and pick a thekkady route bus.

4.some buses are mention "kumali(kumily)" instead of "thekkady".so dont worry about that.thekkady and kumily are 1 km around.

if you need further help plz send me a message.

Regards

Hi,

"Thekkady" is not mentioned in 95% of the buses. All private and government buses will ply only till Kumily. From Kumily, Thekkady is just 4km away. Expect for a few hotels run by Kerala tourism, all hotels are located either at Kumily or on the way to Thekkady. Entrance to Thekkady (Periyar wild life reserve) is restricted and require pass, which can be obtained from the forest check post on the way to Thekkady from Kumily.

Best Regards,
