Weather is pleasant, maximum 26-28 degrees in the afternoon. If it rains, expect a drop in temperature to 23 degrees or so. This is for May-June.

Dear BuRaiR, Your itinerary looks more or less comfortable. On Day 1 , it will be better to stay in Athirappilly rather than going to Kodanad or Kochi and then proceed to Munnar. It may be cost effective if you choose houseboat overnight stay rather than a resort in Alleppey or Kumarakom Hope you have a great trip Cheerz
