How To Reach Kovalam
Read about the best & quickest routes to save time & money, as suggested by our travelers
When thinking about going on a vacation, one need not worry about how to reach Kovalam. Major cities across the world are well-connected to Kerala and majority of the cities in India are connected to Kovalam by air, by road, and by sea. It is highly convenient to choose your favored mode of transport, depending on your affordability and feasibility.
A lot of people prefer traveling by air as it feels more hassle-free and less time-consuming. Car, train or bus journeys can get really tiring, rendering one without energy for the whole day. When you have to reach Kovalam by air, you must take a flight to the Trivandrum International Airport in Thiruvananthapuram, which is the nearest airport to Kovalam. The airport is just about twelve kilometers away from mainland Kovalam. From Chennai, it will take you an hour to reach Kovalam, from Bangalore too, it takes about just an hour and from Mumbai, it takes about two hours and 10 minutes.
On how to reach Kovalam by train, here are some tips that will act as a guide for you. The railway station that is the closest to Kovalam is the Trivandrum Central Railway Station. From there, you can take a cab or hop on a bus to Kovalam. The Station is just fifteen kilometers away from Kovalam, so it will take you about half an hour to forty minutes (depending on the traffic) to reach the main city. This Station has trains plying from all major cities in India, which makes it easier for a person to reach the beautiful city of Kovalam. There are direct trains to Trivandrum Railway Station from cities like Bombay (almost 18 hours), Chennai (11 hours), and Bangalore (16 hours). For those wondering how to reach Kovalam, the duration via train may seem long, but it is an inexpensive mode of transport.
You can also reach Kovalam by bus or by driving on your own. You will be able to find buses from all nearby cities like Bangalore, Madurai, Chennai, and Nagercoil, to mention a few. A bus journey with friends, family, or even a solo trip can really make one retrospect on their lives while simultaneously enjoying the landscape. You can always rent a car to reach Kovalam from nearby places. Some companies even offer cab services, but those may not always be a good option to opt for. It will surely feel more independent to rent a car and have the freedom of taking it anywhere you want. There is no binding in that but on the other hand, you can save up on other costs such as those of a taxi or buses within Kovalam.

Trip to KeralaThe best thing about the trip was that Sunil sir was always in contact throughout the trip. He took care of all of the small things and made sure that we had the best experience. The hotel at Munnar - Mashumantra resorts (location is best for a nature loving person).
Trip to Keralatour and itinerary were good, cab service could be improved also there were no interaction with local tour manager and we have to call to ask for the tour schedule and cab details. road trip especially from Gangtok to nathula pass is memorizing.... one can't imagine the natural beauty unless see through its eyes....
