2018 Summer trip - An Ola outstation trip

Planned a 6-day ola outstation trip, with booking hotels ourselves, instead of buying a package tour, this time.  This turned out to be a lot more economical, compared to buying a package tour, and also, we booked a Prime SUV, instead of a Sedan that package tours generally provide, so that it is more convenient for the long tour.  Even with booking a Prime SUV, it turned out to be cheaper than the quotations for a package tour covering the same places.

Places visited:

  • Day 1: We reached Rameshwaram from Bengaluru, visited the Pamban beach
  • Day 2:
    • At Rameshwaram, bath at temple, darshan, and then left to Kanyakumari.

  • Day 4:

    • Overnight sleep at houseboat
