I was thinking as follows:

Day

1 Madurai

2 Rameshwaram - Kanyakumari (overnight)

3&4 Trivandrum (stay with friends)

5 Cochin

6 Dep Cochin

Is this plan workable in terms of travel time.

Day 01 Visit Madurai

Day 02 Madurai- Rameshwaram

Rameshwaram- Kanyakumari by overnight train ( train thrice a week )

Day 03 Kanyakumari-Kovalam ( Nice beach) or stay Trivandrum -22 KMs from Kovalam

Day 04 Trivandrum

Day 05 Trivandrum - Cochin ( Take morning Jan shatabadi which will take 03hours 15 minutes ) Cochin station name - ernakulam

Day 06 Cochin - Out

Your plan is fine but you should stay at Kovalm beach instead of Trivandrum city. You should try to stay in Houseboat in Alleppy near Cochin. 01 Full day is more than enough to visit Cochin.

Plan - Madurai- Rameshwarm- Kanyakumari-Kovalam- Alleppey - Cochin.

The itinerary would depend on the mode of travel you are planning. But, as you have indicated top end hotels as your preference, I presume you would use flights. In which case I would suggest Mumbai - Cochin - Trivandrum - Kanyakumari - Rameswaram - Madurai - Mumbai.

Thanks for the suggestion to take overnight train from Rameshwaram to Kanyakumari. It saves one full day.

Hi i_m_at_sun,

Welcome to Tripadviosrt

Day 01 Visit Madurai

Day 02 Madurai- Rameshwaram by train

Day 3(second day night) Rameshwaram- Kanyakumari by overnight train ( train thrice a week )

Back to Madurai for flight/Madurai from KK

For entire trip take a taxi from Madurai-Rameswaram-Kanyakumari-Madurai but train is cheaper option

Hi i_m_at_sun,

This is a easy three day trip. But where to start, and where to end depends on your travel plan. Hence, it would be easy to suggest if we may know that.
