Detailed Itinerary

Day 1: Fort Kochi to Thodupuzha

Today we ride to the ancient town of Thodupuzha. Passing fertile spice farms and rubber plantations along the way, we make our way to the historic town dating back to 300 BC when the Buddhist and Jain religions first made their inroads into Kerala. We will ride through undulating terrain, rubber plantations, forests, cross a river and visit a local village. Our destination today is Madaparambil resort – an exceptionally beautiful riverside resort.

Day 2: Kumarakom

We ride through vast paddy fields, fish farms, coconut tree canopies to reach one of the Vembanad lake edges. We are rewarded with stunning views of the surrounding area as we ride through rubber and spice plantations and finish our ride of the day when we hit the water's edge. What you take back from this beautiful ride is a true village experience spiced up with a few untold local stories.
