We’ve selected places of accommodation that not only suit the routes we’ll be riding on but also add to the experience of the tour. There’s a home stay on the shores of one of Vembanad’s idyllic canals. There’s a campsite in a 250 acre forest-farm in Vagamon and campsite floating on a cloud bed in Ramakkalmedu. If it weren’t for the exciting rides every day, you would never want to leave any of these locations.
