I would be traveling with my spouse to Thekkady, and would like to cover Munnar also in the same trip. Would be leaving from Bangalore around 29th November. Do not want to spend more than 30000 rupees for the both of us. Want the holiday to be a mix of activities and relaxation. I want help on the following:
1. Which should I do first Munnar or Thekkady. Would be travelling by bus.
2. In Thekkady would want to visit Periyar national park, Kalari, Elephant ride, Periyar lake in the morning, any other suggestions.( Also is the tiger reserver and the national park the same?)
3. Places to stay, would like to spend the last 2 days relaxing and secluded hotel would be ideal.
Would greatly appreciate your help.
