Back to Kochi Airport
Day 1 is the arrival in Kochi Airport. Kochi is connected to most major cities by flight and train. Meeting Time at Kochi Airport is 1400 hrs.
Once the group from all over India assembles, the trip starts off to our first destination - Athirapally Waterfalls, the one of Bahubali Fame!

Starting from Athirapally Waterfalls, we commence the 4-hour drive to Eravikulam National Park, passing by Munnar, our stay for today.
Munnar is among the crown jewels of God’s Own Country and has attracted visitors from around the world for centuries due to its natural splendour. Hidden inside, lies the famous Eravikulam National Park, the home and sanctuary of the Nilgiri Tahr. This sacred haven for this exotic animal is a relief in a time when different species are disappearing off the face of the planet. Situated in the Devikulam Taluk of Idukki district, people also flock to this park to view the special Neelakurinji flowers that bloom once every 12 years. The next sighting is expected to be in 2030.
Once we are done with the bus ride to the top, and the short trek to the view point in Eravikulam National Park, we come down to Munnar to spend the night.

Starting early from Munnar, we reach Periyar in the late morning, and once everyone is checked-in to the accommodation at Periyar, we take a short boat ride into the Tiger Sanctuary with possibilities of tiger and other wildlife sightings.
For those who have a little bit of adrenaline coursing through your veins, Periyar Tiger Sanctuary Boasts of a Walking Night Safari, walking through the jungle at night, trying to spot some wildlife!
