Trivandrum to Periyar

What is the best way to get to the Periyar nature reserve from Trivandrum (or Kovalam)time it takes and approx cost. If it is too far to make a day trip can anyone recommend a decent mid-price hotel nearby. Many thanks.

Few years ago , i went to Periyar National PArk. we stayed at Thekaddy . my taxi driver took us from Trivandrum (Kavalom) to Thekaddy - it seemed to take whole day. then we went to cochin. I dont have the fare as we hired him for few days. Althogh the mileage is not great, it does take a while as its hilly and roads are not all that great. I have the contact for the driver if you need it.

YES..it is too far to make as a day trip.

The hotels inside the resere forst are expensive.Just stay outside .There are plenty of hotel for you to choose from to cater to your budget.
