      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!

    The Punarjani cultural village in Munnar is the place to catch a Kathakali show. They perform daily from 5 to 6 PM. They also perform the traditional Kalarippayattu martial art show from 6 to 7 PM.

    A Kathakali show costs INR 200/- at the Punarjani Cultural village in Munnar. Children below the age of 6 are given a complimentary entry.

    Although its actual origin is unclear, however, this dance form emerged from coastal regions in South India during the 17th century. The popular belief is that Kathakali has emerged from "Krishananattam", a dance drama on the life and activities of Lord Krishna. It is a combination of dramatic make-up, facial expressions, mudras and soothing music. 

    Kathakali is an ancient and traditional dance form of Kerala, using elaborate make-ups, costumes, masks and set-ups. Kathakali originated in the 17th century and has its roots in Hindu mythology.
