It was a nice trip for 4-5 hours of journey. We visited many places on the way to Thekkady. There was a nice place where we did motor boat for almost 15-20 minutes but it was very crowded it took almost 3 to 4 hours to get our turn. Also there were many good view points on the way.

The condition of the road from Munnar to Thekkary is good. There are 2-3 different routes which are there. The roads are not straight broad roads. Instead they are narrow with a lot of turns which may make you feel a bit road sick. Overall, a lot of greenery on the way.

Too long journey, lot of ghats makes the journey tiring, the climate however remains pleasant due to the greenery all along the routes. Good scenery for photo op. There are halts along the route but that would make the journey longer. Tip : start early in the morning.

Visiting Kerala, should be done in car as this gives one ample time to view the beauty and also a relaxing atmosphere. The taxi was good and the rate provided to me was at par. One should book taxi in advance to avoid any last minute changes. Do try to make a booking via local tour operators.

Kerala is known as God's own country so wherever you look you get an amazing view of nature's beauty. Travelling through tea plantations was very soothing to the eyes. En route we visited view point and spice garden. Spice garden is a place where you can get medicines made from native herbs. Overall it was an excellent journey
