Hi,

Does anyone know how long it takes to travel between Periyar and Varkala? Or whether there anywhere worth stopping off at on the way?

The travel time should be approx 7 hours or more. It maybe worthwhile stopping for the night in Alleppy or Kottayam.

Travel time will also depend on what time of day you leave. To avoid traffic if you leave early, you may be able to do it faster. The road is quite good, and the drive is scenic. You have a small waterfall near Peermade where ou can stop for a few minutes break, and the drive from Kottayam to Alleppey, especially the backwaters stretch from Changanacherry to Alleppey is very pretty-it about 20-25 kms, and you may not want to hurry along..
