There has been a good number of journeys that we had made during this year, and among them, the trip to Thekkady was a memorable one. There is no need for an introduction to this place which is almost as popular as Munnar, a place about which we have heard about for a long time. An easy journey from Cochin to Thekkady is through Thalayolaparambu, Kuravilangad, Pala, Mundakayam and Peermade. But this specific journey had proven to be different for us because there was less at Thekkady, and more to see during the trip and beyond the town. When visiting the place, you surely need to go beyond the border, crossing over to Tamil Nadu, and see the vineyards of Cumbum. But that is rather well known. And something that you should know better is to understand where you should stop in between. You should stop at Panchalimedu and Parunthumpara, one after Mundakayam and before Kuttikanam, and the other after Kuttikanam and before Peermade. These two stops will make the best of your day of journey, and you can reach Thekkady before night begins. It is how you make the best out of this trip – a tip for everyone traveling there, along with that idea to combine the journey with a Cumbum journey. I leave you with a few photos from that particular trip.
