  When it comes to choosing a summer vacation spot, we are certain to pick a hill station. This vacation season we decide to explore the state of Kerala. My gang of friends had to plan a 5-day Kerala trip and visit places that would be soothing enough for the senses and visually appealing too.With 5 days to make the most of the holidays, we four friends decided to cover four destinations: Cochin – Munnar – Thekkady- Alleppey. We had decide to travel by train, thus our arrival city was Cochin. From there we planned to head to Munnar, relax there for two days, then move to Thekkady and conclude our trip with a relaxing houseboat experience in Alleppey.The journey:Our mission to make summers pleasant began when we arrived at the Ernakulam station. Our train arrived at 1.30 pm in the afternoon, giving us time to travel to Munnar before the sunset. Our car journey from Cochin to Munnar was around four hours long but the greenery around kept us charmed throughout along with the local street food that we kept feasting all the way. As we were nearing Munnar, the temperature started to fall and the surroundings felt pleasant. The Grand Plaza hotel, welcomed us with an amazing view of the hills. We wanted to just enjoy the view of the hills from our room’s window but then there was something enticing we were about to witness. Leaving our bags unpacked, we rushed to the Blossom Park. The sight of hundreds of colourful flowers around along with a lake, made the view seem like we were in a dreamland. The boat ride was the best part of the day, I must say.Day 2 arrived and we were ready to explore the natural wonders of Munnar. The Mattupetty dam was our first destination and what a splendid view it was! The clean and clear lake, the dam and the green cover that was spread till our eyes could see. After this pleasant sight it was time to visit our next destination, the Rajmalalai wildlife sanctuary. All we wanted to do in the lush green jungle was spot the Nilgiri Thar which we weren’t lucky enough to spot. However on our expedition, we did manage to see squirrels, the Nilgiri langoor and elephants. We retired for the day with a lavish open-air dinner at our hotel, recollecting our experiences.
