Rather tight schedule. How can you see Kerala and get back to Kanyakumari in one day? Which town are you visiting?

From KK to kerala and Back, the schedule will be a bit to tiring it seems. KK itself has a lots of places for sightseeing. If you can be a bit more specific as to which places you are interested in visiting in Kerala, we may be in a position to help you better.

Hi Santhosh,

Your are wasting much of your time in shuttling between the places.

You may consider this:

Arrive at KK.

Complete all your activities in KK and go by bus or taxi to Rameshwaram

From Rameshwaram take a train /bus to Madurai.

Complete all your activities in Maduai.

Then board the train to Chennai.time

( Fom KK, you can visit only Trivandrum city within same day that too in a hurry since you will spend about 6hrs in commuting only. Where is the time to see many nice places in Trivandrum?

Alternately go to Trivandrum first, complete activities there and reach KK and remaining tours as i have explained.

Anyway whichever you follow, all the best and happy travels.
