Detailed Itinerary

Day 1: Thattekad to Munnar

We start right from our host hotel through rubber plantations. The road is smooth with occasional climbs to get you warmed up for the rest of the day. You also get to see a lot of pineapple farms and cocoa plantations along the route. The ride is a scenic one with short stretches of canal and varying terrain. Post-lunch, the ride has gradual climbs as we head towards Munnar. We ride through wild plantations and get glimpses of the Periyar river along the way. All you can see here is a ridiculous amount of green – refreshing after a day of cycling.

Meals: B,L,D
Cycling Distance: 80km

Day 2: Thekkady

We bid adieu to Munnar and head towards the cardamom hills of Kerala, a small town of Kumily. We take in the spectacular views of tea-clad western ghat mountains, near Lockhart Gap. As you are riding, the 360 degrees view of the lush tea plantations will be forever etched in your mind. The smell of cardamom draws you quickly from the tea-lined mountains to the unmanicured mish-mash of cardamom plantations, interjected by pepper vines clinging to silver oak trees.

Meals: B,L,D
Cycling Distance: 100km

Day 3: Kumarakom

It’s a long day towards Kumarakom and we need to start early. A 06:30am start would be ideal to escape the heat and cycle in cooler hours of the day. This is going to be a beautiful ride – from the Cardamom Hills to the backwater plains. A hilly ride, with both dips and steep climbs, but the cool weather helps you grapple with this challenging ride better.

Meals: B,L,D
Cycling Distance: 100km

Day 4: Kochi

Caught between the backwaters and Arabian sea, this is simply the best rural biking trail combined with village life experiences around Kochi. On the last biking day, we ride along the beach road to Fort Kochi. Get the best picture imprinted to your memory on this last day of the Kerala adventure. We will reach Fort Kochi by afternoon and the tour ends.

Meals: 60km
