      Hotel Elephant route wasn't good enough, I have given 4 star for Hotel cuckmere in Munnar. One thing I want to highlight , travel agency confirmed me the booking of one hotel but later denied as it was not available. This is not acceptable but I had no choice i already did part of payment. This kind of practice should not be encouraged and needs to be corrected at right time.

      If you want to make your trip worth, don't hesitate, just go with travel triangle. My trip to Kerela was made fabulous by them. The hotels were so great and icing on the cake were the sea view rooms.Also the houseboat was very satisfying amidst the backwaters! All in one bookings with Travel Triangle is worth every penny and also assure that where ever my next trip will be travel triangle has to be our backbone.❤️

      Amazing trip to Kerala! Unrise made awesome arrangements. Boathouse experience was out of the world. Only one suggestion would be to ensure sufficient options are available in packages for groups looking for adventure or something different. Boathouse experience and Jeep Safari in Munnar

      the Dream catcher resort at Munnar is a fabulous resort. Spice country resort at Munnar was good but Food is too bad and restaurant delivery time very late. The House Boat at alleppy is not as per Photos provided. It is Substandrd. Also it was Anchored at a Scary Place at night. But Food and service was good. The support from Maneesha was fabulous and she was responsive.

      We had an awesome time in Kerala. The only concerns that we had were - 1. In Tea Valley resort, Munnar Airtel network wasn't there and so they should speed up their wi-fi at least. 2. The Houseboat wasn't upto our expectation. The whole trip has been customized according to our preference and so we really had a great time there. Thanks to Travel Triangle and Great Indian Vacation.

      The cab and the driver were really good, no complaints about that. The whole trip the driver was really cooperative and friendly. He helped and guided us along the way. The only issue was with the wrong itinerary provided. As we were expecting the activities included in the itinerary but upon reaching there we were said that we had been provided with wrong itinerary.

    Sharing a houseboat or having one exclusively to yourself depends on the package you have taken. Share your requirements with the travel agent in advance to avoid last minute hassles.

    A variety of exotic species of wildlife can be found at Muthanga Wildlife Sanctuary like elephants, civet cats, jungle cats, tiger, panthers, wild dogs, monkeys, and many other such animals.

    The entry fee for Muthanga Wildlife Sanctuary is INR 110 for adults and INR 40 for children.

     

    During the off-season, hill stations like Munnar are cool enough to travel to. However, places such as Alleppey and Kumarakom are pretty hot for a visit. Monsoon season does not see a lot of tourists but the lush greenery all around will ensure tourists will have a great time.

    Muthanga Wildlife Sanctuary operating timings are 07:00 am to 10:00 am and 02:00 pm to 05:00 pm.
