Need some advises trying to fix the trip plan
We are a family of 5 2+ 3 kids (19, 15, 8)
>>>Things we like:
- Nature, Rivers, Waterfalls, Villages, Hiking (we like to walk in nature), Animals, nice beaches
- Learn and Feel the place, The people, The local tradition & food
- Local country markets (fruits...)
- Stay nights in villages / farms,
- Be a guest of a local family,
- Real life places (not touristic targets)
>>>Things we like less:
- Long driving hours
- Big cities
For now the situation is :
TAMIL NADU (ONE WEEK)
• Friday 30/08 16:40 arrive at Mumbai
• Friday 30/08 20:30 Departure from Mumbai, arrive to Chennai 22:25 (I need to find hotel for the night)
• Saturday 31/08 : arrangement in Chennai – look for a car & driver for about 27 days
- Don't know yet where to fly back to Mumbai, from Kochi or from Mysore / Bangalore
- Hope it would be possible to find in Saturday a car and a driver and to move the same day to sleep in Kanchipuram.
• 1 - 2 /09 Mahabalipuram
• 3 – 4/09 Pondichery
• 5 /09 Thanjavur
• 6 – 7/ Madurai
KARLA (2 OR 3 WEEKS ? )
Hear I need to to set the schedule… :
• My daughter mast return earlier , her flight goes from Mumbai on Saturday 21/09 23:00 so I guess I must get her a flight from Cochin (or is it Kuchi ?) earlier that day.
• By that, we have 3 weeks from Madurai to Cuchin and the options are :
- Periyar or Munnar or both ?
- Houseboat sailing in Allepey
- Spend some time on the beach (where best ? Kumarakkom/ Ashtamudi are they the same ?)
THE LAST WEEK :
• Should I spend it in KARLA ? where?... and fly from Cuchin to Mumbai ?
• Or should I travel from Cuchin to Mysore / Bangalore see Coonoor… ? (I think although it take time driving, yet its better)
any kind of help would be grate
