How to Reach Eravikulam from Thrissur?
Are you planning to visit the Sea of Blue – Neelakurinji that is ready to bewitch the world after 12 long years? If you are starting from Thrissur then many exciting hotspots await your journey!
Let’s start the trip from the world-renowned pilgrim centre, the Guruvayoor Temple located 30kms away from Thrissur. Punnathur Kotta, Asia's biggest centre of domesticated elephants is a major tourist attraction in Guruvayoor. From there, via NH66 enter the gateway of Christian tradition and Islam to Indian subcontinent – Kodungallur. Make sure you visit the St. Thomas Church, Cheraman Juma Masjid and Kodungalloor Temple to soak yourself in its spirituality. Then by the Kodungallur-Shornur Road enter Thrissur town where you can drop by at the famed Vadakkumnathan Temple. The Cultural Capital offers you many sigh-inducing sights at Athirappally – Vazhachal and Thumboormozhi as well. On the way to these places, you can find many water theme parks also. These are located around 30-40kms away from Thrissur town. Continue via NH16 that later merges with the Aluva- Munnar Road. Then via the picturesque Idukki district and Adimali enter the Kurinji flowering region – Eravikulam.
