The one-day tour package, costing Rs 975 per person and inclusive of tour guide and entry to the park, will start from Ernakulam at 6.45 am. The air-conditioned bus will stop en route at Vallara waterfalls and Cheeyapara waterfalls, and reach the Eravikulam national park by about 2 pm. Visitors can soak in the stunning sight till evening. The first trip will commence on September 15. Special discounts can be availed on group bookings of a minimum of 12 people.
