Cycling Kerala's Backroads

Site savings
$2,808 USD

Cycling on paved country roads, this tour starts with a visit to the Thatekkad bird sanctuary, one of three wildlife reserves you'll explore on this tour. Then the climbing begins, heading up to the highlands and to Munnar, known for its tea plantations and spice estates. After taking the amazing views from Top Station, descend to Periyar and have a rest day to explore the park where you're likely to see a herd of elephants, but unlikely to spot one of the tigers in residence. The tour then heads towards Kumarakom, to spend a relaxing afternoon plying the backwaters on a houseboat. From here, a flat ride back to Kochi with time to explore this fascinating historic town. And always your fill of delicious food, seasoned with local spices.

(Review obtained from Tour Operator)

This was our sixth tour with the operator and it did not disappoint. We love cycle touring, and the operator's support is always outstanding. Franklin is an excellent driver. He is calm, cheerful, and attentive. It was easy to see that driving on mountain roads behind cyclists is not the easiest job in the world, since you must drive slowly and cautiously despite the fact that some other drivers are unhappy about being held up. Franklin handled everything very well.
