Side note!!
The need-to-know India travel tips!

If it’s your first trip to India, be sure to see these tips for getting around India on a budget, and more!

Mosquito repellent tip!!

You can buy good mosquito repellent when you’re in India! There’s a cream (and spray and lotion) called ODOMOS. It works SO well for me! Why do I say that?! Well, there had been times that I would wait until mosquitoes would start biting me to put on odomos. Well, after I put it on, no more mosquitoes! To me, that’s proof. 😉 But of course, your experience may vary. You can find odomos at street shops all over India to try it for yourself! It’s a natural repellent, and it has vitamin E and almond oil in it too… meaning it’s good for your skin too. 😉

India tourist visa tip! 

See the current cost of an e-visa by selecting your country. (partner website.) If you’re American, know that you can get a 10-year tourist visa! If you’re fairly certain this South India trip is your ONLY trip to India you’ll make, then the e-visa will be a simpler process. American or not, also see about how to get an e-visa for India

Arriving to Kerala

 

Backpacking in India

Backpacking India travel guide: Best places to visit in India in one month itinerary route

 

If you’re making Kerala a part of your one month in India (or longer), and you’re starting in Delhi and North India, be sure to see this 2 week Rajasthan itinerary.

 

Backpacking India travel guide: Rajasthan to Kerala. Rajasthan to Goa to Kerala. One month in India itinerary route, best places to visit in India

 

Also see how to get around North India by bus, local train, and overnight train.

Then once you’ve finished up the north (that of course includes a Taj Mahal visit), you can start making your way to South India by first going from Rajasthan to Mumbai or Rajasthan to Goa… that maybe includes a stay at a beach hut in Goa!

See the basics to know about backpacking Goa.

 

Backpacking India travel guide: Goa to Kerala. One month in India itinerary route, best places to visit in India

 

Then once you’ve gotten your fill of the best beaches in Goa, you can go from Goa to Kerala!

There are a few stops, like Hampi, that you may consider making along the way, and Bangalore can make an easy access point to Kerala too.

Depending on where you’re coming from outside of Kerala, it may also make sense to take an overnight bus to Kerala. It’s really not so bad!

You can see what it’s like on an overnight sleeper bus in India, and also see an example of taking an overnight bus from Madurai to Kerala.

 

 

Airports in Kerala

Backpacking Kerala travel guide: International airports in Kerala - Cochin airport, Trivandrum airport, Calicut airport, Kannur airport.

 

There are 2 airports in Kerala on the backpacker tourist trail:

  • Cochin Airport in central Kerala (kind of near Fort Cochin, Alleppey, Munnar)
  • Trivandrum Airport in south Kerala (kind of near Varkala)

 

If you’re interested in North Kerala, there are also 2 more airports:

  • Calicut Airport (nearest airport to Wayanad)
  • Kannur Airport

 

But most of the backpacker activity sticks to central and south Kerala, so that’s where the focus will be here.

 

Kerala by train

Backpacking Kerala travel guide: Kerala train and getting around Kerala by public transportation - Cochin train from Ernakulam, Alleppey train, Varkala train

 

There are also train stations that can make Cochin (Ernakulam), Alleppey, and Varkala your gateway to Kerala by train.

 

Kerala by bus

Backpacking Kerala travel guide: Kerala bus and getting around Kerala by public transportation - Cochin bus, Alleppey bus, Munnar bus, Varkala bus

 

It’s possible to arrive by bus to all tourist destinations in Kerala when covering a shorter distance.

When coming from outside of Kerala, you might consider arriving by bus to Munnar or Wayanad if you’re coming from Bangalore.

 

Kerala by ferry

Backpacking Kerala travel guide: Kerala ferry and getting around Kerala by public transportation

 

And, this is Kerala, home of the famous Kerala backwaters!

You won’t be arriving by ferry to get TO Kerala, but when you are IN Kerala, there are some tourist destinations that are also accessible by the backwaters ferry!

Mainly, to and from Alleppey – you can get in part by ferry to Varkala and to Munnar.

 

 

More tips for public transportation in Kerala

See the guide for how to get to Alleppey

Although this is specific to Alleppey, the general tips for getting around Kerala will apply!

In short, nothing is set in stone and be flexible! This is India. 😉

How to spend one week in Kerala:

 

Backpacking Kerala travel guide: Best places to visit in Kerala and how many days. Backpacking India route

 

Kerala is a place where you could spend more days in any of the main backpacker cities if you’re looking for chill vibes and a place to relax.

That’s why Kerala can be a perfect place to visit following the (generally) more chaotic North India.

 

Backpacking Kerala travel guide: Best things to do in Kerala. Backpacking India route

 

You might even consider giving one of the places a miss so that you can spend an extra day or 2 in another.

 

Backpacking Kerala travel guide: Best things to do in Kerala. Backpacking India route

 

When in Kerala – take it easy, take it slowly!

If you have more time, like 10 days or 2 weeks, consider extending your stay for any of the following:

Backpacking Cochin

Kerala travel in pictures: Best things to do in Cochin in one day

Kerala itinerary: Best places to visit in Kerala - Fort Cochin. Backpacking Kerala travel guide

 

Cochin is one of the bigger cities in Kerala.

Fort Cochin is the backpacker area of Cochin, and you can see a mix of cultures in Fort Cochin with Kerala’s colonial past. This includes influences from the Dutch, Portuguese, Jewish, and British.

You can also go cycling in Cochin by renting a bike to ride around Fort Cochin, and then also head towards Marine Drive where you can go for a tourist boat ride.

Cochin also is known for its fishing nets, and this is something you can see too.

You can see fishing nets from land, and you can also see them from a super cheap ferry on your way to Cherai Beach.

When you first arrive to Cochin, your entry will probably be at the Ernakulam bus station or Ernakulam train station. You can take a ferry to Fort Cochin from Ernakulam for a ferry ride in Kerala!

If you have even less time to spend, like say 5 days in Kerala, then you may consider skipping Fort Cochin and going straight to Munnar or Alleppey.

Hotels in Fort Cochin

Put in your travel dates below and you’ll be able to see the prices of hotels in Fort Cochin on the map!

I’ve stayed at Zostel Kochi.

 

 

Next up: Fort Cochin to Munnar by bus

One week in Kerala itinerary: Fort Cochin to Munnar bus. Backpacking Kerala India route

 

You’ll be going from coastal Kerala (Cochin) to the hills of Kerala (Munnar).

There is no train station near Munnar, so bus will be the way to get to Munnar.

There are frequent government bus timings between Cochin and Munnar, so it’ll generally be pretty convenient to get to Munnar from Cochin. You’ll also find plenty of direct buses.

No matter what city you are in, your guesthouse in Kerala will likely be able to give you accurate bus timings so be sure to ask!

You don’t need to book bus tickets in advance. You can just show up to the bus station and get on the next bus to Munnar. You’ll pay for the ticket once you’re on the bus.

The time on bus might be around 4 hours.

It can get chilly in the hills in the evening, so packing some layers of clothes to wear in Munnar can be a good idea.

It can also be a good idea to make sure the place you’re staying in Munnar has a hot water shower!

If you want to skip Munnar, see tips on taking the Cochin to Alleppey bus.

 

 

Backpacking Munnar

Kerala itinerary: Best places to visit in Kerala - Munnar and Kerala hills. Backpacking Kerala travel guide

 

Munnar is known for its tea plantations.

You can basically make it a travel day going from Cochin to Munnar, and then the next day, go for a day-long Munnar tea plantation trek, which is generally more like a leisurely walk.

 

More places to visit in Kerala

If you have more time, or you are looking to go for a solid day hike, there’s the Meesapulimala Trek that you can do through the Kerala forest department.

This will take you to the second highest peak in Kerala.

The way to do this trek is as a guided group hike, and it’ll come with overnight camping in the mountains of the Western Ghats.

Next up: Munnar to Alleppey by bus

One week in Kerala itinerary: Munnar to Alleppey bus. Backpacking Kerala India route

 

There are a few direct buses from Munnar to Alleppey that you can take, so once again, this can be a pretty convenient trip.

The bus will take around 5-7 hours.

If you’re not liking the timings of the direct bus, the next best option by road might be to get a bus from Munnar to Cochin, and then another bus from Cochin to Alleppey.

Although it’ll seem like you’re backtracking, it might be an option worth considering since there are generally very frequent timings of buses between Cochin and Alleppey. Locals will say “every 5 minutes.” Maybe not ALWAYS every 5 minutes, but there are tons of buses. 

 

Otherwise…

Munnar to Alleppey by ferry (in part)

You should totally also consider arriving to Alleppey in style, aka via the Kerala backwaters!

This basically means that you can take a bus AND ferry to get to Alleppey from Munnar.

 

One week in Kerala itinerary: Alleppey to Kottayam ferry to get from Alleppey to Munnar and to Thekkady - Kumily. Backpacking Kerala India route

 

First, you’ll take a bus from Munnar to Kottayam, and then you’ll take a ferry from Kottayam to Alleppey.

This WILL take longer for you to get to Alleppey, but… when in Kerala!

 

 

Backpacking Alleppey

Kerala itinerary: Best places to visit in Kerala - Alleppey and Kerala backwaters. Backpacking Kerala travel guide

 

Well, Alleppey is THE hub of the Kerala backwaters.

This means that you have a few different options for experiencing the backwaters.

You can go by canoe, kayak, ferry, houseboat, or even cycling on a road along the waters.

And after you’ve gotten your fill of the backwaters, you can finish it off with more things to do in Alleppey by relaxing with views of Alleppey Beach at a beachside guesthouse or beachside hostel, along with eating at a beachfront restaurant!

You can totally make it a perfect one day in Alleppey.

 

More places to visit in Kerala

But if you’re looking to stay an extra day or 2, you can also make a day trip from Alleppey to Marari Beach.

You can walk the 10km to Marari Beach pretty much the whole way from Alleppey with coastal views and empty beaches.

Bus, rickshaw, or scooter rental are also options to get to Marari Beach, but without the views to get there!

A scooter to the backwaters of Kainakary and Kuttanad can also be a nice day trip from Alleppey.

I’ve stayed at Zostel Alleppey and Funky Art Beach House.

 

 

Next up: Alleppey to Varkala by train or bus

One week in Kerala itinerary: Alleppey to Varkala train or bus. Backpacking Kerala India route

 

There are a number of buses and trains you can take to get to Varkala from Alleppey.

The bus will likely take around 4-5 hours, and the train will likely take around 3 hours.

Since this is a shorter distance, you can go for the train in general class so you won’t have to book a train ticket in advance.

You just show up to the Alleppey train station on the day you want to go to Varkala and buy a ticket before you board the train.

Taking the train in general class does mean that you do have a chance of not being able to get a seat.

 

Alleppey to Varkala by ferry (in part)

But once again, similar to Munnar to Alleppey, you should totally consider leaving Alleppey in style!

And that means leaving Alleppey via the Kerala backwaters!

And THAT means you can take a ferry in part to get from Alleppey to Varkala.

 

One week in Kerala itinerary: Alleppey to Kollam ferry to get from Alleppey to Varkala. Backpacking Kerala India route

 

First, you’ll take the ferry from Alleppey to Kollam. Then once you reach Kollam, you can take a bus or train to get the rest of the way to Varkala.

Note that this ferry doesn’t operate in the off-season, which generally speaking is during the summer months.

 

More places to visit in Kerala

 

Alleppey to Amma’s ashram to Varkala

2 weeks in Kerala itinerary: Amma's ashram in Amritapuri, yoga and meditation ashram. Backpacking Kerala India route

 

With more time in Kerala, you can also take the same ferry to Varkala to get to the world famous Amma’s ashram in Amritapuri.

This ashram, where you can practice yoga and meditation, is located right on the backwaters on one side, and just a few minutes walk from the ocean on the other side.

There’s a ferry stop directly at the ashram.

The train can also be a good way to get from Alleppey to Amritapuri and Amritapuri to Varkala.

The nearest train station to the ashram is around a 20-30 minute rickshaw ride away.

 

Alleppey to Munroe Island to Varkala

10 days in Kerala itinerary: Munroe Island backwaters homestay. Backpacking Kerala India route

 

Also with more time, if you want to get in a little more of the Kerala backwaters, or you are looking for a quieter alternative to the Alleppey backwaters, then you just might love a Munroe Island backwaters homestay.

You can still take the Alleppey to Kollam ferry, and then once in Kollam, you can take a rickshaw to get to Munroe Island.

You can also consider taking the train direct from Alleppey to Munroe Island. There’s also a train from Munroe Island to Varkala.

Trains passing through Munroe Island aren’t as frequent as other main cities in Kerala.

Other backpacker cities like Cochin, Alleppey, and Varkala get more long-distance trains passing through which means more train options.

You can also take this as a sign that Munroe Island really is located in a quieter area!

 

 

Backpacking Varkala

Kerala travel in pictures: Best things to do in Varkala in 1 or 2 days

Varkala is known as one of the beach towns in Kerala.

It’s also famous for the restaurants and accommodations that you can find on the cliff.

Kerala is also the birthplace of ayurveda, which is basically using natural herbs and remedies for treating chronic illnesses (and non-chronic), as well as to stay healthy.

You can find many yoga retreats with ayurveda across Kerala.

You’ll also be able to find a place to get an ayurvedic massage in Varkala pretty easily. There will be beach resorts that offer them, and you can also find places as you walk along the Varkala cliff.

 

More places to visit in Kerala

If you have a few more days in Kerala, there are a couple of day trips from Varkala that you can make too.

This can include a trip to the Ponmudi hills with a short waterfall trek along the way, as well as a trip to Kappil Beach.

It would also be an easy trip to head from Varkala to Trivandrum by train to the what’s been said to be one of the richest temples in Asia, the Padmanabhaswamy Temple.

Unless you’re Hindu, this would be a temple that you would just see from the outside though, as they don’t allow non-Hindus inside.

Trivandrum is the capital of Kerala, so it’s a bustling big city.

Another pretty easy day trip from Varkala is a trip to Kovalam Beach. This is another one of the main beach towns in Kerala, and you may also consider staying in Kovalam for beach vibes.

To get from Varkala to Kovalam, first you would take a train to Trivandrum, and then a bus from Trivandrum to Kovalam.

Where to go next after Kerala?!

 

Leave Kerala by flight

The closest airport to Varkala is the Trivandrum airport, and this is around 1.5 hours from Varkala.

If you’re doing this Kerala itinerary in the opposite direction and ending up at Cochin, it’ll take 1 to 1.5 hours to get to Cochin airport.

From Alleppey to the airport is around 2 to 2.5 hours.

Domestic flights are a convenient way to get around India, so depending on where you want to go next, this could be a good option.

You can use makemytrip to search for flights from Kerala.

 

Leave Kerala by train or bus

And, depending on where you’re going to next, train or bus may be a reasonable option too!

Search for trains using trainman.

How to book India train tickets online as a foreigner
If you don't want to go through the complicated process of setting up an IRCTC Indian railways account as a foreigner...
Then the most convenient way to buy train tickets online is through this booking website. I've used it, and it's super simple! You buy the ticket, and then show the electronic version on your phone once you're on the train. Compared to buying directly through an Indian ticket booking website (IRCTC account required) or directly at the train station in India, there is a small convenience fee, as well as a less flexible cancellation policy, though!

India tourist visa tip!
Access to India as a foreigner seems to be getting friendlier! There's an e-visa now and this visa fee is far less than it was before. See the current cost of an e-visa by selecting your country. That's a partner website to make the evisa application process less stressful - it's possible to apply on your own too. See about your options on how to get an e-visa for India.

Travel insurance for India - just in case!
You get travel insurance hoping that you'll never have to use it. But if you do end up needing to use it, chances are that you will be VERY happy that you did get it! See how to figure out the cost of travel insurance for India.
