I need to know what public transport is available to get me from Cochin city to the airport please?
Flight to Singapore departs close to 11pm on a Sunday night.
In which city will I likely find what I need? I need to visit a urologist for vasectomy reversal. Was just checking the weather for both cities in July and Bangalore is much cooler. Other than that, I'm indifferent between the cities.
Does anyone have any information on this trek please ? I am thinking about doing it this July / August.
I have heard it is possible to stay in tea houses for the whole trek, is this correct ?

I am not sure how long we should stay in each city and if there are more must see cities.
I will be happy to hear your thoughts!

I understand that it is monsoon season but our location and itinerary cannot avoid it without significant back tracking. I am looking for help in creating an itinerary and figuring out where to go and what to see. We are budget travelers that are just exploring the world. We are almost 50 so major trekking is off the table. We like to stay in a place for 4-7 days and leisurely…
