Best Route for Kerala Tour

This post help you get an idea about best route for Kerala tour. While visiting Cochin, Munnar, Thekkady, Alleppey, Kovalam  or any other  major tourist place in Kerala choose Cochin or Trivandrum as arrival destination.

Routes To Kerala

  • Cochin is also pronounced as Kochi, and is also known as Ernakulam. While booking a bus you can make the booking to Ernakulam. While booking a train you may book to Ernakulam North or Ernakulam South as some trains stop only at one station. The station code for train booking is ERN or ERS. For flights, make the booking to Cochin or Kochi (location code is COK). By any means, try to reach Cochin as early as possible to cover maximum spots.
  • Tourists from Coimbatore, Bangalore, Mysore, Chennai and Hyderabad can reach Kerala by train, flight or bus. From Coimbatore, bus is the best option. If you are traveling from Bangalore, you have all three options. Normally a bus takes 9 – 12 hrs to reach Cochin from Bangalore. Nowadays multi-axle Volvo buses are arriving Cochin in 9 to 10 hrs. This varies on road conditions. There is a check post at Tamil Nadu – Kerala border and very rarely, we have seen buses come late due to checking at this check post. There are lots of buses plying on Bangalore – Cochin route and this is a good option to reach Kerala from Bangalore. You may even check for sleeper buses. A train takes approximately 12 hrs from Bangalore but getting a ticket is the biggest challenge. If tickets are available, this is the best option. In any case, try to book a bus/train which reaches Cochin in the morning. If you are opting for flight, book a flight that reaches at least before noon.


For trips  less than 4 days fix the departure and arrival from same place. For above 5 days package, if Cochin is your arrival point, then it is advisable to choose Trivandrum for departure.

To each place along the route you need at least 1 day for. Munnar need 2 days.


You can choose a cab for entire trip or opt for public transport.

Bus services are available for each destination. During peak seasons using public transport is difficult especially in hill stations.
