At about 2 hours from Kochi - it's easy to decide to give this place a miss due to the distance ( about 60kms ). However, it's an effort well spent if you decide to. The new dam is built across the Periyar river and...More

It is just sailing on a boat seeing nice sightseeing, but, nothing special to highlight. Try not to go during the monzoon period as the rain complicates the trip. I had such an experience and it was not pleasent at all.
