Day 23. Thekkady (Periyar) – Fort Kochi (Cochin)

Overnight – Brunton Boatyard

Drive to Cochin. Check out from your hotel in the morning and enjoy the fascinating drive through the incredibly scenic rain forests of the Western Ghats as you head for Cochin. This is one of the most beautiful drives in all of South India.

Brunton Boatyard. Arrive at Cochin and you are driven to historic Fort Kochi and the bayfront location of the charming Brunton Boatyard. Built on the foundations of a historic Dutch boatyard, this boutique 22 room lodge does not boast the luxury of most of your previous hotels, but it oozes a magical charm and has incredible service levels and is by far the best lodging in the ancient historic seaport.

Sunset Harbor Cruise. Late this afternoon you can enjoy the Brunton Boatyards complimentary tea, which includes some delicious finger food and good coffee options, before boarding the Brunton Boatyard’s boat (the last boat made by the Dutch shipbuilder, over 60 years ago) and joining other hotel guests for a sunset cruise on Cochin’s massive Harbor.
