INDIA - JOURNEY TO SOUTH

 

South route towards Kerala

I have visited India once before and because it amazed me with its atmosphere, I decided to visit it again. On that first journey, I spent most of my time in overcrowded north part of India, so I thought I would mix things up this time and travel south, with the main focus on the state Kerala. It took me almost two months to plan my first journey, but the second time around I only spent about three weeks on organizing and planning. I used my previous experience, which I gained from my first visit, wiped dust off of Lonely Planet travel book, found my old account from Indian railways and started to write down my itinerary.

 

  • My route took 17 days and I travelled 2 620 kilometers.

 

If I was to add both of my journeys together, I could say that I spent over 5 weeks in India and travelled over 9 200 kilometers.

I started my south route in Hyderabad and took a night train towards the ruins of famous Vijayanagara Empire in Hampi. From there, I took another night train to Mysore, to see the palace of grand maharajas and to Madurai with its exceptional Meenakshi temple. After that I swapped trains for coaches and moved to state Kerala, where I visited tea plantations in Munnar on Western Ghats mountains and national park Periyar. I moved from the mountains to seaside and green canals in Allepey, and I finished my journey on beaches in Varkala.
