Hello All,

We are planning to visit Kerala from 4th Feb to 16th Feb. I have already booked by tickets to start and end the visit from Kochi Airport. We would be 5 members including my parents ( sr. Citizen) and one 6 month baby. After reading on different portals and TA , I have made following tentative plan:

04-02-2017 - Stay and Relax at Fort Cochin
05-02-2017- Reach Kovalam around 2 PM by Train from Cochi to Trivundaram . Relax in Kovalm
06-02-2017- Local Sight seeing in Kovalam
07-02-2017- Local Sight seeing in Kovalam and in night board Train to Rameshwaram
08-02-2017- Reach Rameshwaram. Darshan & Relax
09-02-2017- Move to Madurai from Rameshwaram , Darshan & Relax
10-02-2017- Move to Thekkady / Periyar - Relax
11-02-2017- Local Sightseeing in Periyar
12-02-2017- Reach Munnar from Periyar - Relax
13-02-2017- Local Sightseeing in Munnar
14-02-2017- Local Sightseeing in Munnar
15-02-2017- Munnar to Allepy ( Day trip) and Back to kochi
16-02-2017- Fly Out

I have following question to ask on the tentative plan :
1. Will the proposed plan be really hectic or manageable ( Considering that I wish to cover only main temples in Madurai & Rameshwaram).
2. Any place to removed.
3. Any days to be added / reduced from different places.
4. How is backwaters in Varkala or Kovalam, I am inclined to avoid Allepy.
5. Any idea about Taxi Fare for Madurai to Munnar for 10th Feb'16 to 14th Feb'16.
6. How plan can be changed by removing Madurai & Rameshwaram.

Any other recommendation is highly appreciated.
