Hi, i have done a booking for 2 nights (Feb 27-29). Can you let me know any sightseeing activities besides the cycling, boat ride and the ripple falls. Also how is the weather around that time of the year and also travel travel time from Kochi would be helpful as would be renting a self driven car. Thanks
Travel time from Kochi to Munnar is about 4 hours. If you prefer adventurous trips, I would highly recommend the off-road mountain package offered by Ragmaya Resort. It is thrilling and an amazing experience!
I went in November-end, so weather was awesome and resort is at amazing location. You need at least 4.30-5.30 hrs from Kochi to Munnar. Road is dangerous and all are mountains road, so my suggestion is to hire a vehicle.
This resort is far(more than 20km) away from Munnar town. So for sightseeing you have to drive for at least 25 -30 km.
Ragmaya resort is a around 30-35 kms from the main Munnar town, where you can visit , Lockhart's tea gardens and factory.
Apart from the tea gardens you can also visit photo point, Echo point, Hill top point( all are in one direction).
There is a massive amusement park near Ragmaya resort, which caters to several fitness activities like- Zip line, Burma Bridge, Bungee Jumping etc...... ( Recommended as you get to enjoy majestic mountains).
On the way to Munnar (Kochi) do visit spice garden.
Kochi to Munnar is around 135 kms and it takes around 4-5 hrs to cover the distance by car.
Now I would seriously recommend against using self driven/ rental cars, as roads are extremely narrow and traveling within Munnar isn't advisable as motorable terrain is pretty rough and self driving can be risky.
expertise in driving is required as the road is not good.try to leave kochi early morning..4 to 5 hrs is average travel time.you can go for natural plantation walk which is organized by resort itself with extra cost..
