    • Trip to Kerala

      The trip was good ..But I have requested to book backwaters house boat in Alleppy but the travelsailor.com provided somewhere else "Cherthala".I wanted to visit Alleppy once but the driver also denied to take us to Alleppy because he needs to drive 23kms more .and he was always rushing and simply asked us to see the place and come .We cannot spend much time in most of the arrtactions.

    • Trip to Kerala

      My 2 nights trip to kerala with my family was organised by trip trello, a travel agent proposed by travel triangle. Rates were quite competitive and driver was reasonably good. He can understand our requirements as a family with small kids and cooperated with us for visiting places as per our requests. Only one issue we faced was to extend the travelling hours on the last day till 9 PM in-place of 7 PM at the Airport. Driver was insisting to drop us to the Airport by 7 PM as per his duty hours and company policy, and charged us some more to extend the travelling hours till 9 PM. This should have been made clear before booking the trip to coordinate with our flight timings by travel agent to avoid last minute confusions.

    FAQ's of Munnar

    Read on to find out why our customers love us!

    Munnar being a hill station, there is no bad time to visit really. Every season has it's own charm in the city. Though most people go in winter for trekking or in the summer to escape the heat, monsoon in Munnar is incredible as well. Heavy rains and lush greenery everywhere make it a beautiful experience. Monsoon is also the time when Munnar is the least crowded

    As a lot of the attractions in Munnar are a little far from the main town, there is no specific ideal area to stay in Munnar. It is better to check according to the hotel that you are planning to stay in and get an idea of it's quality.

     

    There are rooms available from Rs.800 a night to Rs. 15,000 a night. Restaurants are plenty, mostly connected to hotels and serve various cuisines for roughly Rs. 200-300 per person for a meal. There are also cars available on rent for transport and cost anything between Rs. 600-2500 for half a day or the full day. At the very least, a day in Munnar would cost you Rs.1000-1500.

    Paddle Boating, speed boat ride, and horse riding are some of the activities you can do at Mattupetty Lake in Munnar. In the vicinity of the dam, tourists can visit the beautiful tea gardens that are a treat for nature lovers.

    Home to extensive plantations of both tea and coffee, both the beverages and their local preparations are specialities of Munnar. Being a hill station, the weather is also something that makes Munnar quite special. Even in the summer months, Munnar's average high temperature is 26-28 degrees celsius. The Anamudi Peak which is near Munnar is also worth mentioning as it is the tallest peak in South India. The Eravikulam National Park is also home to the Nilgiri Tahir.
