Munnar-Kumarakom-Munnar on the same day?

Hi,

I have planned a 4 day Munnar trip (from Bangalore) as follows:

First day : Bangalore to Munnar.

Second Day : Sightseeing in Munnar.

Third Day : Munnar to Kumarakom. Day cruise in Houseboat (1200-18000 hrs). Drive back to Munnar.

Fourth Day : Munnar to Bangalore

Now, I am slightly confused about Day 3. Is this achievable? Has anyone done Munnar to Kumarakom, taken the 12 noon to 6 pm day cruise on a houseboat and drove back to Munnar on the same day?

I was planning was to start from Munnar at 7am. Reach Kumarakom by 12 noon (or earlier). Do the houseboat ride (12 noon to 6pm) and then finally start from Kumarakom back to Munnar by 6pm. Reach Munnar by 10pm.

Kindly provide your valuable suggestions on this.

Thanks in advance,

S Ray

Bangalore.

Dear Ray,

Day 3 wil be absolutely Crazy and not worth doing.

1.You will on the road 6 hrs one way, so assuming you start from Munnar to be in time for a cruise and leave in the evening , you would reach by midnight.

2. You will be paying extra for you hotel accommodation at Munnar, the Houseboat and for the Taxi.

3. Nett output - you will be too exhausted to enjoy anything.

You should drop this idea or stay a night on the houseboat

Have a good trip.

keep kumarakom to the last day and direcly go from there to cochin and forward to banglore by any mode. no point in climbing down from the munnar and again climbing unless it is part of mountain rally.
