How To Reach Thekkady From Trivandrum

By AirBy RoadBy TrainBy Sea
Trivandrum to Thekkady-5.0 hours2.0 hours-

Thekkady, a small district in Kerala is frequently visited by tourists from all over India as well as by those not belonging to India. It is a beautiful place and reaching there is not a hassle at all. It is extremely well connected. It is most famously known for the Periyar National Park where tourists love to go for the Periyar Tiger Trail, which is a thrilling experience. So here are a few ways in which you can reach Thekkady from Trivandrum:

 

Thekkady From Trivandrum By air: There are currently no flights which will take you from Trivandrum to Thekkady.

 

Thekkady From Trivandrum By train: Trains are the most economical and affordable. Train journeys are super fun when travelling in a large group. The whole journey passes by very easily. The train duration to reach Thekkady from Trivandrum is about 2 hours. However, the nearest station where you will have to deboard is not very close to the city centre. From the Kottayam Railway Station, a cab ride of approximately 2 hours will take you to Thekkady. It is not inconvenient, just a little longer than you may expect.

 

Thekkady From Trivandrum By road: Individual travellers could swear by bus travel. The bus directly travels from Trivandrum to Thekkady. It takes just 5 hours to reach Thekkady from Trivandrum. It is cheap, affordable and reasonably comfortable. If you are lucky, you may even find a companion on during the bus journey. If buses do not suit you, there is  always the option of a hiring a cab. The cab will take you to Thekkady from Madurai in just 4 hours. It will not feel like a long journey if you have a book to read or a fellow traveller with you, or better yet, some great music.

      I had a wonderful experience in Kerala in terms of place , travels but just want to add one suggestion. Please book hotels more carefully even if package includes 3 star hotels but there were much better hotels in Kovalam and Thekkady which were 3-star on same price with a slight variation. Because I have faced little issue with hotels only specially in Kovalam that they had only 10% of things which were mentioned in their menu and food taste service was below average. Rest all of the hotels we're good and our driver was very cooperative and sweet. Also Jipson coordinated very well during travel whenever required. Only bad part was Kovalam stay, I am disappointed with that. Houseboat was an awesome experience for me. I loved the service by all of the 3 staff on houseboat, they were really cooperative and sweet. Had a great time in Munnar stay i.e. lake n hills resort - their staff is also good and food was awesome. Overall had a great time in Kerala. Will try to come again for sure

    FAQ's of Thekkady

    Read on to find out why our customers love us!

    In Thekkady the cost of a one and a half hour ride from the Elephant Junction is roughly Rs. 1300. 

    There is boating, border hiking, Bamboo rafting and Jungle safari to Gavi. The safari includes trekking, pedal boating, visit to cardamon plantations as well as the museum.

    Thekkady is a place that you would visit to be close to nature and as such, it is a peaceful and luxurious experience. A visit with family is ideal and it is an excellent place to spend some down-time with the family and relax. Of course, if you have friends that share a common interest with you, for example, wildlife/nature photography, then it is a great place to visit with them as well.

    In terms of clothes, muted colours like green, brown, grey are recommended as the national park is a main attraction. The clothes should ideally also be comfortable and easy to walk around in. Since the other attractions around Thekkady are nature oriented as well, it makes packing the essentials of mosquito repellent, flashlight and good shoes necessary as well.

     

    The ideal amount of time spent in Thekkady would depend on the traveller's reason for going there. While there are quite a few places around that are not to be missed to see the true beauty of the place, one can ideally see most of them in 3 or 4 days. However, as the biggest attraction is Periyar National Park, anyone visiting Thekkady to spend a few days observing the animals could do with staying a week and seeing some of the other nearby attractions as well.
