Getting there:

We are located 2KM from Anachal town bus stop.  It’s a 5-min rickshaw/tuk tuk ride to the hostel and will cost Rs50-Rs60/-

From Bengaluru

From Bengaluru, you can catch an overnight bus to Munnar.  Some buses will drop you right in Munnar town, in which case you can catch a local Kochi-bound bus to Anachal.  This ride costs Rs20/- and takes half hour.  Alternatively, there are some buses from Bengaluru that pass through Anachal first – in which case you can get down in Anachal itself without having to go to Munnar town.

From Kochi

Cochin International Airport is about 30KM from the city of Kochi, so instead of going all the way to Kochi, you can catch a bus from the airport and alight at Aluva which is 14KM (half hour) from the airport.  From Aluva, you can catch a Munnar-bound bus and alight at Anachal.  This will take approximately 4 hours.

Ernakulam Junction Railway station is a major railway station serving the city of Kochi.  If you get down here, you can catch the Kochi Metro from the Ernakulam South Metro Station (which is less than 5 min walk from the railway station).  You can take the metro to Vytilla (Mobility Hub), from where you can then catch a Munnar-bound bus and get down at Anachal.  This journey should take about 4 to 5 hours
