7 Days Cochin Periyar Kumarakom Alleppey Tour

Cochin is a city in southwest India’s coastal Kerala state. It has been a port since 1341, when a flood carved out its harbor and opened it to Arab, Chinese and European merchants. Sites reflecting those influences include Fort Kochi, a settlement with tiled colonial bungalows and diverse houses of worship. Cantilevered Chinese fishing nets, typical of Kochi, have been in use for centuries. This Tour covers Periyar, Kumarakom and Alleppey – the most beautiful destinations in Kerala – God’s own country!
