    Travel itinerary for visiting Munnar and Alappuzha


    Are you looking for a good travel itinerary to visit Munnar and Alleppey? Follow this thread to get some suggestions from travel experts.

    We, a group of 4 people along with 2 kids are planning to visit Munnar and Alappuzha in Kerala. Can anybody suggest me a good itinerary to cover these 2 places in 3 or 4 days time? Also, please suggest any places to visit on the way to Munnar.

    I think houseboats are the biggest attraction in Alleppey and you may not want to miss it. They usually start by around 11am or 12pm and complete the cruise by next day morning.

    An entire day is required to fully enjoy the house boat cruise. Another full day is required to see other places in Alappuzha.

    You can cover all major attractions in Munnar within 1 day but you may want to stay there 2 nights to comfortably enjoy the weather of Munnar hill station.

    Suggested itinerary:

    First day: Reach Allepey by train or car the morning. Get into the house boat by about 11am and enjoy the Kerala style lunch in the house boat. Cruise in the boat till evening and stay in the boat in the night.

    Day 2: Complete the house boat cruise in the morning and go for sigh seeing in Alappuzha/Kumarakom area during the day.

    Travel to Munnar in the evening. There are buses or you can rent a cab. Night stay in the hotel.

    Day 3: Go for sight seeing in Munnar. Get back to the hotel room in the night.

    Return from Munnar next day morning.

    During my last visit, I stayed in Munnar Tea Country resort. It is a good family resort with lot of scenic beauty. Read my review of Munnar Tea Country Resort.

    On the way back from Munnar, you can visit Thattekkadu bird sanctuary, which is a great opportunity to watch rare migratory birds.

    October to January is the best season to visit Munnar.
