This was my first time in India, and I had the chance to go with someone who already been in India before. It was a two weeks journey, going from town to town.

There was an amazing light in the train, because of the colours inside, everything was blue and the windows was diffusing the daylight, and creating a soft atmosphere inside the train.
Arriving in Alleppey we stayed a few days in a very nice guest house named « Rice County ». Alleppey is a small town crossed by backwaters, our guesthouse was next to a Mosque, the morning prayer at 5am is a bit disturbing at first, but still what reminds you aren’t not dreaming.
We took the bus to Munnar, where you can see amazing tea fields every where, it was a 5 hours journey, and arriving in Munnar we decided to go to a smaller town named Kumily, where we found tea fields also and the Peryar National Park (add another 5 hours bus ride).
