Shades of Kochi: In and around

We were at Fort Kochi for three days and it is sufficient to explore Kochi, though we did not try the backwater trips. I would suggest a weekend trip, even a day is enough to explore Kochi. Alleppey is around two hours drive so exploring Kochi and Alleppey would have been great. Virtual journey of our visit through these pictures we captured.

  1. Kochi is beautiful during Monsoons.. A visit to Alleppey or Kumarakom would make it a perfect vacation.. I stayed in Kumarakom couple of years back and enjoyed the house boat experience…

  2. I’ve been browsing on-line more than 3 hours these days, yet I never found any fascinating article like yours.
    It’s beautiful value enough for me. Personally, if all site
    owners and bloggers made good content material as you probably did, the net shall
    be much more useful than ever before.
