How To Reach Karumadi Kuttan in Alleppey

The Karumadi Kuttan is located at a distance of fewer than 5 kilometers from the center of Alleppey. So, you can take an auto rickshaw or hire a cab to reach the village of Karumadi. You can even choose to reach Karumadi Kuttan by boat. It will not make a lot of difference in terms of the time taken. Both by road and by boat, it will take you about 30 to 45 minutes to reach. However, in boating, you will have an advantage because you will be able to enjoy the view of the calm and serene backwaters of Alappuzha. It will be a sight to behold as the backwaters are famous for their scenic beauty. By road, you can go via National Highway 47 via Ambalappuzha. The nearest railway station is Ambalapuzha which is about 4 kilometers away from Karumadi Kuttan.
