      The 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).

      tour 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....

      The Kerela package of 4nights and 5 days( Munnar &Alleppey) was gift to our parents on the eve of their 40th wedding anniversary. This is the second time I chose Travel Triangle to plan my holidays and we had a great experience thanks to the package planned by Inspire holidays. Mr.Mani from Inspire Holidays created the most amazing trip for us- fulfilling every need and request made by us.He went beyond expectations and delivered the best customer experience. They gave us a very comfortable plan considering our group of 9 people including adults, children and elders. Both the hotels Misty Mountain Resort and the Houseboat in Alleppey were very pleasant and satisfying. The driver Manu who was with us from the time of our arrival In kochi till our departure was very good natured, polite person and felt like a family member. We enjoyed the local food and delicacies thanks to him as he guided us to the best eating joints and he always kept the tempo traveller provided to us very fresh and clean. A very special Thankyou to Venus Kaur the TravelTriangle holiday expert who put all our apprehensions & worries to rest and always responded immediately to any of our concerns. Thanks to all of these who planned our trip and gave us a memorable experience Keep up the good work.

      Overall nice trip with reasonable rates..... Only I felt Thekkady should not be included in the trip..... As there were nothing to see , It became wastage of time and money Definitely the two nights in Munnar, the wild elephanteco friendly resort and sight seeing of Munnar..... Kalari fight

    FAQ's of Kumarakom

    Read on to find out why our customers love us!

     

    Two of the major catches for the fishermen in Kumarakom are the Karimeen, also known as the Pearl Spot and shrimp. Many of the local delicacies are based around the two with one of the most popular dishes being the Karimeen Pollichathu, which is grilled Karimeen wrapped in a banana leaf after being prepared with rich spices.

     

    Kumarakom was involved in many of the fights for supremacy between the local kings in Kerala. There are still remains of a fort wall in Kumarakom. The Taj hotel building also has a piece of history attached to it. The bungalow was built by a British man called Alfred. G. Baker whose family lived there for the next 4 generations and influenced a lot of the things that happened in the area. It was a ruin after they left until the Taj Group took over and converted it into the luxury resort it is now.

    Kumarakom is home to the Kumarakom Bird Sanctuary which is an excellent location for photographers that are interested in birding. A large number of rare, migratory birds can be found here. Kumarakom beach is also an excellent place for photography and the Aruvikkuzhi waterfalls deserve a mention as well.

     

    Kumarakom is a rich hub for boating and as such, there are many different kinds of boats here. Especially impressive are the snake boats, which are boats that are also used in boat races. In the months of August and September, there are various boat races which are unique to Kumarakom and an exciting spectacle to behold.

    Kumarakom condenses the essence of a holiday in Kerala. Home to Kerala's biggest backwater, Vembanad lake, spending time on a houseboat is a must. The Kumarakom Bird Sanctuary is also an important spot for tourists along with Aruvikkuzhi Waterfall. The Maya Spa is well reputed for it's Ayurvedic massages and the traditional art forms of Kathakali and Kalaripayattu can be found and enjoyed here as well.
